Just to clarify, welding is a heating process that uses an electric arc to join two metal parts together. A common process, yes—but by no means a simple one. There is a wide range of methods, materials, and tools that can be used. With regard to the methods, the ones used should be firmly rooted in the type of application at hand, your specific requirements and abilities, the equipment available, and the budget. And that brings us to stud welding, one of the more popular welding methods based on its speed, accuracy, reliability, and visually appealing aesthetics. Here’s everything design engineers need to know about stud welding, including the three different processes, the benefits of each, and the tools and equipment involved in the process. Stud welding only requires worker access to one side of the joint, making th...

What’s the difference between USB-C and Thunderbolt 3?

Thunderbolt is the result of Apple and Intel working together to create a high-speed peripheral interface to replace FireWire. Now in its third generation, there’s some confusion among users thanks to the adoption of USB Type-C as its connector of choice. If you’re not sure what the difference is when it comes to USB-C vs Thunderbolt 3, now’s the time to set it all straight. The most important fact to grasp is that there is a difference between a physical connector and the communication standard of the signals running over that cable. The key difference between USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 is that they use different languages to send information from one device to another. USB-C uses the USB 3.1 protocol and, as the name suggests, Thunderbolt 3 uses the Thunderbolt protocol. Any Thunderbolt 3 port will also work as a normal USB-C port. So if you’re wondering if your USB-C device will work, rest assured that, generally, the answer is yes. All Thunderbolt 3 cables also work as plain old USB-C cables, however not all USB-C cables are Thunderbolt 3 enabled! A Thunderbolt 3 device will not work with a cable that only supports the USB protocol. Thunderbolt 3 ports have extra hardware that ...

Apple’s Partnership With America’s Biggest Medical System Is Up and Running

<!–*/ */ /*–>*/ Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) said Wednesday that veterans across the country and in surrounding territories can now access their medical records using the Health Records feature on the iPhone. The system debuted after months of work behind the scenes between Apple and the VA, including work with a select group of patients this summer to test the system. This is the first record-sharing platform of its kind for VA patients, making this a huge deal for Apple. The VA is the largest medical system in the United States, providing service to more than 9 million veterans across 1,243 facilities, including hospitals and clinics. Apple first announced the partnership earlier this year, adding the VA to the growing list of health providers that are opting to use the cutting-edge software feature. Veterans only need to sign into their providers’ patient portals in the Health app, allowing the users to access all of their health records in one place. The app aggregates a patient’s medical information from across participating medical institutions and organizes the data in one view. This includes details r...

A can of Mystic Table Beer is a true Boston innovation. Pour one out. / Photo by Joe Makarski / @makphoto_van_travels The Boston beer scene will soon be a little less effervescent, Chelsea will lose its only brewery, and the Orange Dino IPA will really be extinct. Mystic Brewery, a recent Best of Boston winner and one of the region’s first microbrew players when it launched in Chelsea in 2011, is shutting down operations. The surprising news was announced last Friday, Sept. 27, with a social media post signed by founder Bryan Greenhagen. Along with expressions of sorrow and gratitude, Greenhagen told fans that over the next few weeks, Mystic “will be celebrating what our brewery has accomplished by releasing some final batches, special beers, and selling off our beer archive as well as selling off all of our barrels to the public.” Saturday, Oct. 19, will be the taproom’s final day in business, and Ciao Pizza will be on hand to soften the blow with free pies. Since the initial announcement,...
