GMN Aerospace announced today that it has received the 2018 Boeing Performance Excellence Award (BPEA). The BPEA is The Boeing Company’s annual program that recognizes suppliers who have demonstrated high-performance standards.
As electronic devices are getting smaller, a major concern that largely looms over engineers and designers is the dissipation of heat. All electronic devices emit heat, which without a proper outlet, could lead to a spike in the internal temperature of the device, ultimately resulting in its failure. Trapped heat in a device can not only damage critical internal components but can also negatively impact the performance of the device.
Wahl Clippers Corporation (Wahl), a leader in the professional and hair grooming industry, approached GMN to create a nameplate for its 100-year special edition cordless hair clipper. To mark its centennial anniversary, Wahl was looking for an elegant, jewel-like nameplate that embodied the aesthetics of the early 1900s.
In today’s touch-centric era, consumers have not only adapted to non-tactile technologies, but also expect a broader range of devices to offer this functionality and user experience. Capacitive switches do not have any moving parts or mechanical components, resulting in superior durability and prolonged life. Since these devices do not have any crevices, they reduce tooling costs and also do not allow any ingress of moisture, dirt or dust. Their flat surface also makes it easier to clean them regularly.
Whether it’s etching, engraving, or cutting materials, laser technology plays an integral role in the fabrication and decoration of various components. But how does laser technology exactly work? Which materials can a laser cut? What are the key advantages of utilizing lasers in the manufacturing industry? By demonstrating the working of a few laser cutters at GM Nameplate (GMN), our recent video will answer all the above questions.
