According to recent statistics from the U.S. government, global energy consumption will increase by close to 40% by 2030 to nearly 700 quadrillion BTUs from its present level of 500 quadrillion BTUs. On average, the increase in developed countries such as the U.S., Japan and Germany will be 17%, following an average growth rate of 0.7% annually. In developing countries, the increase will be closer to 67% by 2030, following an average growth level of 2.5% annually.

The financial risk of rushing a new product out the door has now been significantly softened as a result of today's production lead-times of less than 14 days (10 kpcs) for delivering programmable MEMS clock oscillators.
MEMS clock oscillators rely on cost-effective silicon-resonator technology, which allows the quick introduction of new products without added expense. Despite today's challenging economic climate, program managers need no longer make a trade-off between price and delivery, while design engineers enjoy greater leeway.
Though diamond tools offer longer tool life and greater long-term productivity, end-users often don't look beyond the higher price tag.
Industrial diamond can be defined in two ways: natural diamond that does not meet the standards of gem diamond because of color, size or other imperfections; or diamond that is synthetically manufactured for industrial applications. In 2007, over 90% of all industrial diamond use was synthetic.
New York, NY--In 2008, world production of industrial diamonds will exceed $2.3 billion. The majority of these will be used in abrasive and cutting tool applications. Manufacturers of cutting tools and superabrasives have long recognized the advantages of diamond over other abrasive products, such as ceramic and cemented carbides, but have not been able to justify the added expense of using diamond products over these less expensive materials. Continually, however, efficiencies in synthetic diamond production and the development of untapped mines in Canada and South America, lower the cost of diamond materials. The result has sparked an increased interest in diamond tools.
FITCHBURG— The floor of the 400,000-square-foot plant where Simonds International Corp. manufactures sharp and biting band saws looks like brick, blocks of clay that have been coated with black paint and worn smooth by nearly 70 years of workers’ movements.
But looks deceive. The floor beneath machines that have been carefully placed according to the latest thinking in efficient manufacturing management is made of blocks of wood specifically placed there to soften the blow if any of Simonds’ saws should hit the floor.
Puebla, Mexico/New York City, NY (March 8-9, 2006) -- New York City, NY (March 1, 2006) — On March 8th and 9th, Dedalus Consulting (DCI) will speak at an Entrepreneurial Forum entitled Competitiveness through Innovations: Opportunities for BioMEMS in the Health Sector.The two-day workshop taking place in Puebla, Mexico is being sponsored by FUMEC (Fundaciòn Mexico-Estados Unidos para la Ciencia/The United States-Mexico Foundation for Science). FUMEC, a bi-national, non-governmental organization, was established in 1992 through an agreement between Mexico and the United States to promote scientific and technological collaboration between the two countries.
New York, NY -- The term micromachining refers to manufacturing parts or machining materials in dimensions no greater than several millimeters in total. Although the ability to manufacture at such a small scale has existed for decades, there has been an increasingly growing trend in this area over the last several years.
A device consisting of an analysis mechanism (such as a biochip), a reservoir chamber for drug storage, and compound delivery mechanism (such as a microneedle array) used for diagnostic and therapeutic applications. Drug delivery systems can be either in vivo or in vitro such as a transdermal patch or inhalation device. For the purposes of this report, only drug delivery systems that involve a bioMEMS mechanism are considered. Thus, many oral delivery methods (i.e., pills and inhalation devices) are not considered.
New York City, NY -- In 2004, the world market for bioMEMS is expected to exceed $14.3 billion with the US market accounting for nearly 31% of the total. This includes research funding and commercial developments within the markets for implants, such as pacemakers and pulse generators for gastrointestinal conditions; sensors for neurological applications; diagnostic devices such lab-on-a-chip; and treatment equipment such as the smart pill which delivers drugs as necessary and in hyper-accurate dosages.
