Improving Gun Safety with Force Measurement

In an effort to reduce the incidence of accidental gun discharge, The New York City Police Department (NYPD) has been modifying their standard, off-the-shelf firearms to require a greater amount of force to activate the trigger. Following any shooting incident, the weapon is immediately sent to NYPD's Firearms Laboratory for a battery of tests. Among those tests, the trigger pull force was...

Jaw Force Gauges measure grip on workpieces.

Jaw Force Gauges measure grip on workpieces.

With Jaw Force Gauges, users can accurately measure force applied to each chuck jaw independently, so that problems can be diagnosed and corrected before failure occurs. Reading in pounds of chucking force per jaw is holding force available for that specific jaw. Providing force range from 0–30,000 lb, gauges are suitable for chucks from 6–18 in. Gauges identify potential safety hazards and...

The Economic and Strategic Benefits of Cloud Computing

Cloud computing and software-as-a-service (SaaS) are two of the hottest IT trends that have emerged in the last couple of decades. By creating the ability to store and access data and programs through the internet while cutting out the middleman (aka, hard drives and other physical devices), cloud computing offers many attractive features to companies in almost all industries, including fiscal savings, speed, scalability, ease of upgrades, and agility. Although the upfront savings of SaaS are undeniable, there are still many that favor on-premise systems and proprietary software. You may be wondering if transitioning to a cloud-based model is the right choice for your company, but with so many different viewpoints it can be hard to make sense of all the pros and cons. Using concrete data organized into helpful graphs, this white paper offers insightful interpretations of the numbers to show the ways in which SaaS can offer both financial savings and strategic advantages.
