Plastic with a cold grip


For this new plastic application, Elastollan® offers an excellent combination of lightweight construction and serial production: the conventional metal chain mesh is replaced by two Elastollan® grades of different colors that chemically adhere to one another in the injection-molding process, and so do not have to be additionally assembled. The black Elastollan® B90A15 with a harder setting displays very good mechanical properties along with great flexibility at low temperatures; the red Elastollan® B60A10WH is more flexible and easy flowing. In... Read More »

Connected Energy and Renault to collaborate on energy storage and EV charging technology


At the end of their useful in-vehicle life, Renault EV batteries still have considerable remaining capacity, which means that they can continue to give great service in other applications before they are ultimately recycled. And with rapidly increasing EV sales – 97,687 EVs were sold in Europe in 2015, up 48% on 2014 – so is the requirement in energy to charge them. E-STOR: a flexible and environmentally friendly energy management system Through its award-winning E-STOR technology, Connected Energy is offering a highly innovative solution... Read More »

Dell Makes the Most Secure PCs in the Industry Even More Secure With New BIOS Verification and Advanced Threat Protection Technology


The new BIOS verification functionality uses a secure cloud environment to compare and test an individual BIOS image against the official measurements held in the Dell BIOS lab. By conducting this test in an off-device environment, users can be assured that the post-boot image is not compromised as the testing takes place in a secure cloud platform and not on a potentially infected device. The verification helps extend security throughout the entire device lifecycle and provides greater visibility for administrators wanting to stop malicious BI... Read More »
