SEM Live! Techniques & Benefits of Scanning Electron Microscopy

Posted by NSL Analytical on 10/22/20 12:02 PM

NSL's Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) is a very useful tool for examining materials at up to 100,000x magnification. In this webinar, you will enjoy a first-hand presentation and demonstration of NSL's remote SEM capabilities to learn how it can be used in examining fracture surfaces, surface chemical analysis, and more. NSL metallurgists Rebecca Stawovy and Ben Schmidt show you what a live examination looks like and what kind of information the SEM can provide remotely for clients anywhere in the world.

Producing Quality Metal Parts with Additive Manufacturing

Posted by Larry Somrack on 4/23/20 10:10 AM

The aerospace industry is increasingly adopting metal additive manufacturing (AM) for both flight safety-critical aircraft parts and non-critical flight parts. The approach offers a shorter development cycle, which means products can be developed quicker and design changes easily incorporated. Similar to other 3D-printing methods, metal AM, specifically select laser melting (SLM) and electron-beam melting (EBM), builds up a part layer-by-layer by depositing thin layers of metal powder that are melted with a laser or other thermal source.

Prop 65 Safe Use Determination for BPA Exposures

Posted by NSL Analytical on 4/17/20 2:25 PM

As a provider of ophthalmic testing services, we're happy to share that after years of work, The Vision Council has successfully won a Proposition 65 Safe Use Determination (SUD) from the State of California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) for exposure to Bisphenol A (BPA) from polycarbonate prescription glasses, non-prescription sunglasses, over-the-counter reading glasses, and safety glasses manufactured, distributed, or sold by members of The Vision Council. Essentially, this SUD issuance from the OEHHA concludes that a Proposition 65 warning is not required in these optical products because the amount of BPA is so small that it does not create a health risk.
