The Society of Manufacturing Engineers, who’ve done two conferences focusing in part on molecular nanotech, now have a video on nanomanufacturing. The script is free, and so is a video clip with some images, so if the cost is an issue for you ($99 SME members/$280 nonmembers), you can get quite a bit just from those.
Molecular nanotechnology (MNT) promises to usher in the next Industrial Revolution with a new, radically precise, less expensive, and more flexible way of making products. Like steam engines, electricity, and transistors, nanomanufacturing is poised to completely impact business and industry worldwide. Yet every aspect of nanoscale science and the commercial production of nanotechnology will depend on the capacity of these tools to measure, sense, manipulate, and fabricate matter at the molecular level.
Part of SME’s Manufacturing Insights® Video Series, Nanomanufacturing highlights the current, near-term, and future applications of this technology. You will see how nanotechnology is transforming the way we manufacture products using innovative top-down fabrication and bottom-up assembly techniques that use matter to build complex products with atom-precision.
PLUS! Only SME can take you inside Nanorex, NanoInk, Zyvex, General Dynamics and NASA to provide an authoritative, first-hand look into the applications of molecular manufacturing.
Includes Foresight members Mark Sims of Nanorex, Jim Von Ehr of Zyvex, and Tihamer Toth-Fejel of General Dynamics. If you’d like to be in such a video someday, you might want to join Foresight! —Christine
