• Real-time diagnostics and selectable beam parameters for comprehensive process control

“This is the first opportunity for many European manufacturers to access an industrial laser peening system for application and product development research,” said David Lahrman, VP of Business Development for LSPT. “We’re introducing a superior fatigue enhancement solution to the European market, and we’re excited to form new partnerships in pursuit of stronger, more reliable components.”

Laser shock peening (LSP) is a powerful metal improvement process that produces a 10X fatigue life enhancement over shot peening. LSP utilizes a high-energy pulsed laser to generate controlled stress waves that impart compressive residual stresses up to 12 mm beneath the material surface. Laser peening has been proven to significantly extend the service life of metal parts by providing enhanced resistance to common failure mechanisms:

• Fatigue Cracking
• Stress Corrosion Cracking
• Foreign Object Damage
• Fretting Fatigue
• Creep Deformation
• Erosion

Laser peening improves the performance and reliability of metal components, adding value to critical parts across a broad range of industries:

• Aviation and Aerospace – Engine components, turbine blades, bulkheads, wing attachments, landing gear, helicopter components
• Automotive – Axles, drive shafts, valve stems, connecting rods, pistons, impellers

Laser peening is a proven method for significantly increasing the fatigue life and fatigue strength of metals. The mechanical surface enhancement process utilizes a high-energy pulsed laser beam to impart compressive residual stresses up to twenty times deeper than shot peening. The compressive stresses introduced by laser peening add strength and robustness to metal parts by improving their resistance to damage, fatigue, crack initiation and crack propagation. Benefits of the process include: extended component service life, reduced maintenance and repair costs, improved part performance, and enhanced resistance to failure. The process has been employed for years by major aerospace OEMs including GE Aviation and Rolls Royce.

LSP Technologies’ Procudo® 200 Laser Peening System is the only commercially available laser designed exclusively for laser peening. It employs a diode-pumped, pulsed YLF laser that produces a flat-top beam for smooth energy distribution and consistent processing. The flexible system offers selectable laser parameters, along with custom controls and diagnostics developed from LSPT’s 20 years of laser peening experience.

Sesame Smart Lock Accommodates New Technology

Palo Alto, CA, April 21, 2015 — /EPR ELECTRONICS NEWS/ — Sesame – the world’s first instant smart lock – is now one of the hottest projects on Kickstarter, which has raised more than one million dollars since launch. Currently, more than 6,000 supporters have backed the project.

Sesame allows users to lock and unlock their doors using the Sesame app on their smartphones. It is the only smart lock that syncs the movement of the lock with the phone, providing exact control of the angle to which the lock turns.

Jerming Gu, the inventor of Sesame, said he wanted to bring the joy of technology to regular people with affordable prices. Sesame is also designed to accommodate the fast changing nature of technology.

In deed, the consumer electronics technology changes year by year. Any users of consumer electronic products – whether it’s a lock or a phone – they will be forced to upgrade the hardware often.

Here are some examples:
1) iPhone 4 (Bluetooth 3.0) is not compatible with iPhone 4S (Bluetooth 4.0);
2) RFID (clipper bus card) is not compatible with NFC (Apple Pay/some credit card);
3) z-wave (most old digital locks) is not compatible with Zigbee (newer digital locks);

“You might want to have a new phone every year but you may not want to construct the door every year just for a newer digital lock,” said Gu.

That’s the problem Sesame is trying to solve.

Now Bluetooth 4.2 is coming, Gu just swapped to the new version 3 Bluetooth chip in mass production.

“Also, the long-distance wireless charging technology is about to hit the market, I feel everything is changing too fast,” said Gu.

With five-patented design, Sesame works with just about any deadbolt in the world. Users can install it in seconds, without replacing existing lock or removing anything. Current model is optimized for US/Canada/northern Europe Markets.

CANDY HOUSE also offers optional access point, which connects Sesame to the Internet when plugged into any nearby outlet. It lets users control Sesame wherever they are.

With Internet connection capability, users can allow guests in remotely. They can also control who has access and when. To ensure safety, the Sesame app also sends out a notification whenever the door opens or closes.

About CANDY HOUSE
Founded and developed by Stanford University students, CANDY HOUSE, Inc. is a candy store that sells dreams, putting the joy and surprise of innovative technology in the hands of consumers, just like candy. It is also a design house, developing and manufacturing products that inspire a minimal lifestyle. It launched its first product – Sesame, the world’s first instant smart lock – in February 2015.

Stanford Student Entrepreneur Raised $800K on Kickstarter

Palo Alto, CA, April 02, 2015 — /EPR ELECTRONICS NEWS/ — Stanford student Jerming Gu, founder of CANDY HOUSE Inc., raised more than $800,000 dollars after his product launch on Kickstarter. Sesame – the world’s first instant smart lock – reached its funding goal in nine hours when first introduced. Currently, nearly 5,000 supporters have backed the project.

Sesame allows users to lock and unlock their doors using the Sesame app on their smartphones. It is the only smart lock that syncs the movement of the lock with the phone, providing exact control of the angle to which the lock turns.

Gu is a mechanical engineering master candidate from Stanford University. Originally from Taiwan, Gu is someone who usually thinks outside the box. Disruptor, troublemaker, entrepreneur, as he calls himself.

“There has got to be smarter ways to live our life,” Gu said.

Gu said he got the idea for smart lock due to his experience living in Asia where technology is relatively less developed.

With five-patented design, Sesame works with just about any deadbolt in the world. Users can install it in seconds, without replacing existing lock or removing anything. Current model is optimized for US/Canada/northern Europe Markets.

CANDY HOUSE also offers optional access point, which connects Sesame to the Internet when plugged into any nearby outlet. It lets users control Sesame wherever they are.

Sesame – smart lock that changes the world

Palo Alto, CA, March 27, 2015 — /EPR ELECTRONICS NEWS/ — Sesame, the world’s first instant smart lock, raised more than seven times of its funding goal on Kickstarter. Launched on Kickstarter on Feb. 25, 2015, Sesame has raised more than $760,000 from backers all over the world.

The smart lock, which allows users to control their door with a smartphone app, attracted thousands.

Connected to users’ phone via Bluetooth, Sesame allows users full control of the lock, even to the exact angle a lock turns. With the optional Wi-Fi Access Point that connects Sesame to the Internet, users don’t even have to be physically near Sesame. The remote control feature allows people to send access to their friends and keep track of whether the door’s locked wherever they are.

With five-patented design, Sesame works with just about any deadbolt in the world. Users can install it in seconds, without replacing existing lock or removing anything. Current model is optimized for US/Canada/Singapore/Norway/Sweden Markets.

With market of Internet of Things (IoT) expanding rapidly, backers are turning more and more attention to smart gadgets that make their life easier. Founded by two students from Stanford University, CANDY HOUSE Inc. designs and manufactures products that inspire a minimal yet joyful lifestyle.

“People will carry less and less things when leave the house, that’s the trend,” said Jerming Gu, founder of Candy House.

Wallet, keys, and cell phone. People used to bring three things when they leave home. Now walltet is gradually replaced by keys. The Starbucks app pays your green tea frappuccino, you Venmo money to a friend for getting late-night pizza, you hop on a Uber without worrying about cab fare or tip.

“With Sesame, the next thing to disappear are the keys,” said Gu.

Smart Magnetic Mounts Power your iPhone, iPad, Android on the Go!

SUNNYVALE, CA, January 06, 2015 — /EPR ELECTRONICS NEWS/ — With a $25,000 initial goal for the development of MagTarget Wireless Charging System for iPhones, iPads and Android, MagTarget LLC has launched a crowdfunding project on Indiegogo. “In order to keep your devices charged throughout the day, we’ve designed a series of docks with a smart magnetic interface to hold and connect your phone to all common areas of one’s life such as the car, home and office.” said Jean-Michel Thiers, CEO of MagTarget. “It’s so simple in its design and yet outperforms all the more complicated wireless chargers currently on the market.”

Wireless charging is not new, but current systems are not designed for convenient use throughout the day. MagTarget’s wireless magnetic power docks merge the worlds of wireless chargers and mounts into a simple solution. The patent pending magnetic charging system allows simple touch-to-charge and the flexible design of the mounts provide endless powers on the go! MagTarget also offer wire-free USB connectivity to perform tasks such as downloading photos or using your device as an external drive, without having to pull out a wire. To provide the best user facing experience possible the docks are fully adjustable and allow the phone to rotate from portrait to landscape while still maintaining electrical connectivity. When installed in the car the MagTarget dock can alleviate the fear of running out of power while using the phone’s GPS. Powerful magnets keep the phone in place while driving or biking around town. In fact the current lineup of MagTarget mounts provides twelve pounds of pull force to hold the five ounce iPhone in place. This holding force is focused on the center of mass of the phone with makes it easy to disconnect with a simple twist.

MagTarget works with all iPhones/iPads and Android/Windows phones/tablets that have the charging port at the center bottom (which covers the majority of devices). Users can place MagTarget directly on the device or on their favorite case. The patent pending design also has a standard camera mount on the bottom (1/4-20). This allows the use of a whole array of other mounts from suction cups to tripods and everything in between. In addition, MagTarget will be offering its technology, on the device side, free of any license fees via an Open-Source setting. This will allow other manufacturers, in addition to MagTarget, to design cases to cover upcoming devices.

New product launch: TechTable Pty Ltd announces the release of their flagship multi award winning product “TechTable” in the United States

DELIVERING ADVANCED SAFETY AND INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY TO THE TELECOMMUNICATIONS INDUSTRY.

Sydney, Australia, October 28, 2014 — /EPR ELECTRONICS NEWS/ — The award-winning TechTable was officially launched in the US at the BICSI Fall conference and provides a portable, lightweight and sturdy work surface for communications technicians to safely and efficiently terminate fibre optic and copper communications cabling.

Installers of highly complex cabling projects have seen rapid advances and developments in termination technologies however there have been very little improvements in the cluttered and uncomfortable work environments.

By using the TechTable, installers can now perform tasks at waist height and easily rotate between standing and seated positions. The platform is height adjustable, stable and comfortable and allows technicians to temporarily mount a patch panels and components onto the table for faster loading, termination consistency and improved accuracy.

David McHarg, Managing Director of TechTable Pty Ltd commented “Installers are faced with fairly primitive working conditions, meaning that neck, shoulder and back pain is not uncommon. Often technicians sit on milk crates, or in the cabinet, and are squeezed into a confined spaces for hours at a time, I couldn’t help but think there must be a better way.”

After much of his own research, David formed a team consisting of OHS consultant Glenda Snoxall, ACT Safety Regulator and Ergonomist Richard Siddell and Peter McKay of Industrious Design to develop a solution. Following an in-depth risk assessment and report in accordance with the code of practice for the prevention of Musclo-Skeletal disorders 2007 the TechTable was designed to address the key features required from a health and safety aspect and ensured compliance with this code of practice.

Prior to commercial release, The TechTable was trialled by a number of communications and electrical service companies with feedback indicating that it not only offered a much more comfortable position than traditional installation methods, but also delivered far greater accuracy and speed. Testing also identified that manual handling risks were either eliminated or reduced, and the installer’s productivity was increased by up to 24%.
The TechTable is designed for easy daily transport inside a padded carry bag and the set-up time is less than one minute. The dimensions are designed to suit tight-fit positions in cluttered computer rack environments, telecommunications rooms and data centres.

Currently the Tech table is used throughout Australia and has successfully launched in the US. For more information, including product specifications and OHS/WHS data, visit TechTable (http://www.techtable.co)
