Waves of innovation

This is one of those charts I’ll love to use. It deserves some further research and clarification, so I’ll write a few posts on the role of CNC machining in the next “waves of innovation”.

Part 1: Green Technology ~ Wind Turbines and CNC

Part 2: Green Technology ~ Nano-engineering and CNC

nanotechnology-480“Green nano-engineering” is about building and manufacturing materials of a very small scale.

Have a look at the CNC production of tiny parts at Engineering TV.

  • Future specialists will be creating ultra-fine filters to capture ALL carbon dioxide from small engines to fossil-fuel power plants.
  • Nanotechnology will be key for better water purification to remove 100% of the bacteria and viruses – making deadly water-related diseases preventable.
  • Nanotech will clean up our soil, improving the quality of our food.
  • Solar energy will be captured in smaller nanotech storage systems.

There is an increased demand for these kinds of environment-saving solutions. So a perfect career choice might well be ultra-precision computer numerically controlled (CNC) machining.

Soon: Part 3: Green Technology ~ Solar Power Cars and CNC
