Save A Life…With Your Watch

A new clockwork heart pacemaker does away with batteries according to Yahoo News.  Swiss engineers, famous for making the world’s finest watches, are turning their hands to cardiology with a prototype battery-less pacemaker based on a self-winding wristwatch. Current pacemakers need for battery power is a limiting factor, since replacing them requires a surgical intervention.

pacemaker

“This is a feasibility study. We have shown that it is possible to pace the heart using the power of its own motion,” Zurbuchen, the head engineer said.

Automatic watches work because they have an eccentric weight that pivots when the wearer’s arm moves. This rotation progressively winds a spring that then turns the watch mechanism. In the new Swiss pacemaker, the mechanical spring unwinds to spin an electrical micro-generator.

The research is still at an early stage and there is, as yet, no schedule for human testing. However, this could prove a major innovation in both healthcare and the watch-making industries.

What The Movies Got Wrong About Swords

In fantasy novels and action movies, we like to see weapons at work but we don’t particularly care how they were created. Some swords have even more elaborate origin stories than the characters who wield them. All the stranger then, that no one writing our favorite books and movies ever bothered to google how these weapons are really made.

Myth 1: Making a Blade Only Takes One Movie Scene

swordforging

All you have to do is heat the carbon steel, pound it into shape, then heat it again like they do in movies. Those montages never take more than a couple minutes; surely you could churn out countless swords a day? In fact, a single longsword can take anywhere from 40 to 80 hours of forge time.

Myth 2: Magic Metals Make Super-Powered Swords

game-of-thrones-ned-stark sword

We’ve already covered this one in our article about the reality of shows like Game of Throne’s Valyrian Steel Blades. Sadly, here in the real world, we just have steel. There are no hidden mines spitting up extra special sword metal, no meteorites raining magic space iron down on our heads.

Myth 3: Katanas Are the Greatest Sword Ever Invented

pulpfictionakatana

If you’ve ever watched a Tarantino then you are well aware of this myth. Draped in honour, these samurai swords are folded multiple times to get them to unparelled sharpness levels. However, katanas are typically made of pig iron, and are only folded to remove the impurities of the sub-par metal.

killbillkatanaSo if you were thinking of whipping up a sword in your spare time, you may need to schedule a few more hours in. If you’re looking for the materials, Shanghai Metal Corporation manufactures the carbon steel used for most sword replicas. As an ISO 14001 (International Quality Management System) Company and recipient of the “Star Enterprise Award,” Shanghai Metal Corporation prides itself on exceeding international standards of quality and reliability.

Foods That Grow In Surprising Ways

sugarcane

You’ve never thought about it much until its brought up in conversation – does a plant grow in a tree or underground? Surprisingly, pineapples grow on bushes, artichokes are petals, cocoa beans on trees, and black pepper grows on vines. What about sugar? It’s not technically a fruit (as much as we want it to satisfy or five a day). However it does derive from the sugar cane plant. It takes a long process to get it into the crystallized form we all love. Here are the steps:

 ???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????How To Get Sugar:

  1. Grow the cane and harvest it
  2. Extract the sugar syrup from the cane using rollers
  3. Evaporate and clean the syrup in the factory
  4. Separate the by-products. Three products are made; brown sugar, molassess and bagasse, two by-products used in alcohol and biofuel respectively.

And know you know! At Shanghai Metal Corporation we manufacture carbon steel sugar cane extractor blades. As an ISO 14001 (International Quality Management System) Company and recipient of the “Star Enterprise Award,” Shanghai Metal Corporation prides itself on exceeding international standards of quality and reliability. We guarantee the best prices, quality support, and fast delivery. To find out more, please visit our Tumblr, WordPress,  LinkedIn , Twitter , Facebook  and Instagram.

Thor’s Hammer: The Science

Thor’s hammer isn’t real, unless you believe recent Swedish news that Thor’s hammer has been found in Stockholm. No, only in the hearts and minds of comic book and movie fans does it exist. But, assuming it did, would anyone be able to lift it?

thors hammer1

Legend says only the worthy can lift it, and depending on which source you read, it’s made from a dying star. If that is the case, then it would have to weigh as much as a herd of 300-billion elephants according to Neil deGrasse Tyson. If you’re wondering, the average weight of a male African bush elephant is a bit more than 12,000 pounds, so about 4.6 trillion metric tons. Watch a video by Vsauce3 which nicely explains the concept:

If we were to follow the legend that Thor’s hammer was made from metal from Asgard, it would only weighed 42.3 pounds. That is far less than 4.6 trillion metric tons.

ThorHammer4

Most likely if it was made from existing metals it would be made of carbon steel.  Die steel refers to a variety of carbon and alloy steels that are particularly well-suited to be made into tools. Their suitability comes from their distinctive hardness, resistance to abrasion, their ability to hold a cutting edge, and/or their resistance to deformation at elevated temperatures (red-hardness).

carbondiesteelforhammers

Shanghai Metal manufactures the carbon steel in hammers. Die Steel is mainly used for manufacture of cold-work dies with high abrasive resistance and small shock load. SMC is delighted to provide wide range of alloy steel to the customers; we also accept customizations according to your requirements.

#BuildingValueAcrossTheGlobe

Become Bullet Proof …Using Water

In most movies, the superhero escapes certain death by simply jumping into water. Or if he’s Aqua Man: go back home. But would that actually save him from someone shooting at him? The answer is yes and no. Myth Busters found the answers.

bulletwater1

It depends on the bullet, and how fast it goes. Paradoxically, the slower the bullet, the deeper it can go. The reason for this is because of the force at which it hits the water. If it hits hard enough, the bullet will shatter and become harmless. But if it is going slow enough, it will continue through the water at speeds fast enough to penetrate human flesh. 

Refraction

Supersonic bullets, up to .50-caliber, disintegrate in less than three feet of water, while pistol rounds need up to eight feet to become non lethal. Shotguns slugs require even deeper water. While these are the technical measurements, in most actual situations the bullet would enter the water at an angle, reducing the amount of water necessary to make it non-lethal. This is shown in the refraction picture here.

Copper

Shanghai Metal manufactures the Copper Clad Steel used to make bullets. Copper clad means both side of carbon steel is covered with T2 copper. This is a novel alloy material which can be used in a variety of applications.  To find out more, please visit our websiteLinkedInTwitter, Facebook and Instagram.

How A Tiny Anchor Can Hold A Whole Ship

When you think about it, it seems strange that such a tiny object defies an entire ships direction. Like these party tricks below, so many of these physics tricks seem impossible until you see them.

physicstrickgif

Something to do with friction maybe?

physicstrick3My mind says he used glue, but my heart says its science

anchor3

So how does an anchor work?

The main thing about an anchor’s function is that it works against a force exerted against it by the ship, via the anchor’s chain, in a horizontal direction.

For an anchor to hold, you need to veer out enough chain so that the last part of it lies on the ground. Rule of thumb for small boats is at least depth times five for anchor chain.

ship2

So a ship does not lie above its anchor but downstream or downwind of it (assuming only one anchor). To pluck the anchor out of the ground, you take the boat above the anchor, ideally (if it is not snagged) it cannot hold against a vertical force.

So there you are: there is method in science’s madness. The physics behind anchors results in amazing things.

Shanghai Metal manufactures anchors and other mooring equipment. Having been certified by ABS, LR, GL, DNV, NK, BV, KR, RINA, RS, CCS, Shanghai Metal can ensure the high-quality standards of all our anchors and other marine products. With a 36,000 ton production capacity, we guarantee complete and on-time delivery regardless of the size of your order. To find out more, please visit our websiteLinkedInTwitter, and Facebook.

How Do Telephones Actually Work?

It’s one of those facts you think you know from school but simply won’t come to you when you need it most.  Just next to you some work friends talk intelligently about a recent news story. They turn to you for your opinion, but of course you spent your morning running late and wasting time in the coffee line. So you fall onto your backup – smile and laugh. In a Bridget Jones fashion, you vow to memorise some clever facts for next time. Chechnya anyone?

bridgitjones

And just like that F.R.I.E.N.D’s episode, where Joey feels left behind when everyone talks about current events despite his V encyclopedia investment, we at SMC are here to help avoid such social mishaps.

How The Telephone Works:

  1. The sound energy in your voice makes the air vibrate. Vibrating air carries the sound energy into the phone.
  2. The diaphragm in the mouthpiece microphone converts sound energy into electrical energy.
  3. The electrical energy travels from the phone, via exchanges and carbon audio transformers, to your friend’s phone. Carbon is special because it changes its electrical conductivity with minimal amounts of pressure—pressure such as that created by pressing a membrane against it, a membrane that is vibrating due to, oh, say, the sound waves created by a human voice.
  4. A diaphragm in the earpiece loudspeaker of your friend’s phone converts the incoming electrical energy back to sound energy.
  5. The sound energy travels out from the earpiece into your friend’s ear.

phone2

So, next time there is a lull in the conversation, we at SMC have you covered – how to segue into telephones…that’s your business.
