Automotive manufacturers, and their part suppliers, are increasingly implementing parts cleanliness and contamination control programs that comply with ISO 16232 or VDA 19 standards. These cleanliness standards are typically applied to automotive parts such as transmissions, fuel injectors, power steering pumps, and fluid hoses. This white paper describes the workflow and processes to implement a cleanliness program, from capturing micron-sized particles to the finalized ISO- or VDA-compliant reports.
DENVER (AP) -- Hundreds of people across the country lined up Tuesday to tell the Environmental Protection Agency that its new rules for power-plant pollution either go too far or not far enough.
The agency is holding hearings this week in Atlanta, Denver, Pittsburgh and Washington on President Barack Obama's plan to cut carbon-dioxide emissions by 30 percent by 2030, with 2005 levels as the starting point. The rules are intended to curb global warming.
ALBANY, New York (AP) -- Corning Inc. has donated $1.8 million in high-tech components for a telescope a private group wants to launch into space.
The not-for-profit BoldlyGo Institute wants to put its ASTRO-1 telescope in orbit by the mid-2020s. Obtaining the components for a roughly 6-foot (1.8-meter) telescope primary mirror will significantly contribute to the ambitious goal, the group said Tuesday in announcing the donation.
The institute is beginning to raise cash and material for the project, which its CEO, Jon Morse, hopes will cost "well under" $1 billion.
