The 25th International Conference on Magnetically Levitated Systems and Linear Drives, MAGLEV 2020, will be held in Changsha, PR China, from October 12 – 14, 2020. The MAGLEV 2020 conference invites experts, public officials, decision-makers, planners, scientists, students and interested citizens who would present or support a constructive discussion on the prospects of magnetic levitation technologies and linear motors applied in transport and industry. The conference is organized by Hunan Rail Transit Group, Tongji University and the International Maglev Board. Key topics will be various configurations of maglev systems including high-speed, urban and cargo, as well as economics of maglev systems. For more information, visit: www.maglevboard.net
Three companies based in the Los Angeles area — Virgin Hyperloop One, Hyperloop Transportation Technologies and Elon Musk’s The Boring Company — are locked in a a globetrotting whirlwind competition to develop magnetic-levitation transportation systems.
With more than $1.8 billion in blue-ribbon investor funding and successful demonstrations of the practicality of a record-powerful magnet, Commonwealth Fusion Systems, a spinoff from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is trailblazing a path toward commercializing fusion energy. It plans to reach the long-coveted destination in the early 2030s. Two big steps were accomplished recently – one involves money, the other technology using high-temperature superconducting tape. […]
New technological approach includes high-precision unbalance measurement, microdispensing and light curing Balancing is required for various types of applications. Up until now, the predominate way to balance an object was through subtractive methods, like machining […]
