MANUFACTURING industries, TECHNOLOGY, COMMERCIAL products, CARBON nanotubes, and LASERS
The article offers information on new technologies and products included in the list "Innovations That Could Change the Way You Manufacture" compiled by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) in 2009. SME claims buckypaper or thin sheet of carbon nanotube aggregate has potential as a building material for aerospace vehicles. A fiber-optic laser is used in micro-laser-assisted machining. It is anticipated that prototyping and manufacturing will become easier with personal fabrication.
