(Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence: North Kingstown, RI) -- Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence announced the release of the TESA TWIN-T10, a portable display for inductive probes that offers ease of operation for its users, as well as a clear and immediate graphical display of data. The TESA TWIN-T10 is particularly suitable for straightness, run-out, and form or geometry evaluation during fine adjustments, alignments, or the assembly of mechanical parts.

Due to its hemispherical form of the analog scale with 200 segments, the TESA TWIN-T10 allows for a clear analog and numeric reading of form variations. The new portable display also offers an exceptional operational time of more than 340 hours with standard AA batteries, so it can be used efficiently without the need to recharge frequently.

(Renishaw: Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire) -- The youngest patient in the world to receive deep brain stimulation has undergone surgery at Evelina London Children’s Hospital in London. The aim of the procedure was to help the patient, Viktoria Kaftanikaite, who was just two years old, to manage her symptoms of dystonia. The procedure was carried out in partnership with King’s College Hospital, also in London, and with assistance from Renishaw’s neuromate stereotactic robot.

During the procedure, two stimulation electrodes were implanted into a part of the brain known as the globus pallidus internus, an area concealed deep within the brain that is responsible for the control of movement. A device called a neurostimulator then sends electrical impulses, via the electrodes, to change brain activity in a controlled manner.

(Exact Metrology: Cincinnati) -- Exact Metrology, a leading provider of 3D and CT scanning equipment and metrology services, now offers the GOM CT scanner—the most accurate industrial CT scanner currently on the market. The GOM CT scanner offers the highest accuracy and highest resolution of any 225kV system available today, and Exact Metrology devised the “GOM CT Challenge” to prove this.

“If a company is considering the purchase of a CT scanner, they can call us and validate the suitability, then send us a part,” says Steve Young, co-president of Exact Metrology. “We’ll scan it and send them the images. If they don’t believe the output is superior to other scanners in the 225kV range, we’ll send them $100... no strings attached.”

(Zontec: Cincinnati, OH) -- Zontec Inc., global leader in statistical process control (SPC) software, is expanding its software purchase options to include e-commerce subscription software. Starting today, Synergy 100 and Synergy 100+ are available to purchase and download without long-term commitments or contracts.

This new e-commerce subscription provides a positive shift in the way manufacturer’s access and use SPC software. The ability to subscribe with a single user minimum and floating license is very practical for companies who previously thought SPC software was unattainable. This software subscription delivers results and creates value from the start without a lump sum payment up front. Because this software is so cost-effective, companies can expense the monthly subscription instead of navigating the capital expense approval process that is commonplace when purchasing on-premise software. This makes purchasing Synergy 100 or Synergy 100+ a simple, easy business decision.

“Even though we still offer SynergySPC software without subscriptions, we want to give manufacturers a new, cost-effective way to engage with us and implement SPC software,” says Benjamin Ha, vice president of operations, Zontec. “Fast to download and install, our new e-commerce subscription gives companies the flexibility to scale according to their needs.”

(Vireo Health: Minneapolis) -- As America’s leading physician-led cannabis company, Vireo Health has long been dedicated to providing high-quality cannabis products and unrivaled patient care. Kyle Kingsley,a board-certified emergency medicine physician, founded Vireo Health after serving on the front lines of the nation’s opioid epidemic. His viewpoint of cannabis as medicine quickly evolved after seeing, first-hand, the positive impact of medical cannabis on patients with chronic pain conditions.

Today, Vireo Health has grown from its modest beginnings in Minnesota to one of only a handful of multistate medical cannabis companies that are licensed in more than 10 states, for both the state-legalized medical and adult-use cannabis markets.

(Digital Metrology Solutions: Columbus, IN) -- Digital Metrology Solutions, provider of measurement software, consulting and training, has released two new products for multi-band surface texture analysis. Bandify and Bandify3D instantly separate surface texture into wavelength bands and display the data in a highly intuitive, single-screen interface.

“To produce surface finishes that both look good and perform well, you need to understand the spatial wavelengths within the surface texture,” explained Dr. Mark Malburg, President of Digital Metrology Solutions. “A roughness number alone can’t tell you whether a paint coat will appear glossy, if a gasket will seal, or if a gear will make noise. Understanding the impact of various wavelength domains leads to a better understanding of these complex functions.”

Bandify is the first software tool designed exclusively to analyze surface texture simultaneously over several user-defined wavelength bands. The software reports wavelength-specific surface parameters, with user-defined tolerance bands to highlight out-of-spec conditions.

(MoneySuperMarket: Ewloe, Wales) -- With many workers spending up to 40 hours a week in an office, it should come as no surprise that the office environment is vitally important to 21 percent of people. Happy workers are up to 20-percent more productive–so making sure the office is a positive place to be is in everyone’s interest. But what is it that makes an office space feel right?

New research from leading price comparison site MoneySuperMarket surveys the views of business owners and employees, to find out what perks, facilities, and styles are the most sought after in different industries.

Business office models

While there’s a clear preference overall, with employees simply wanting an open plan office, a coffee machine and to be close to home, in individual industries the tastes of employees differ significantly. Some of the office environment choices include:

(Modus Institute: Seattle) -- The eternal question: What do I do next?

We have goals (value to provide) that need to be completed. But there are so many of them, we don’t know where to start.

We want to do the right work at the right time. We want to make sure we get the important work done.

We want to make sure we have the capacity to deal with the urgent when it arrives.

The existential lament: I need to prioritize my work.

But how do I, with all my interruptions and unpredictable work, figure out what is the real priority?

How do I understand my context?

How do I let others know what I'm doing?

How can I get all my work done?

The eureka moment: Priority is achievable!

In the class, “Prioritization In a Chaotic World,” we examine nine ways to look at our work. One is our default setting, the other eight help us understand context, diffuse politics, heal relationships, and find the right work at the right time.
