For the last quarter century, the Renaissance in manufacturing has depended on innovative and superior designs that let producers excel in terms of product quality, delivery and performance. The pressure on manufacturers to continue this positive trend will almost certainly increase as global competition becomes more intense and raw materials more costly.

Every single day, we encounter electromagnetic interference, also known as EMI. Garbled conversations and dropped cell phone calls; The "noise" your radio makes when you drive under power lines; crackles on your phone lines during lightning storms. EMI can create inconveniences, but there are much more dire repercussions to EMI.
As Tesla tries to introduce their electric supercars to a broader market, they will need to reduce the cost of their batteries. In this post, titled "Tesla Motors Inc Needs Significant Cost Reductions on Batteries (TSLA)", Victor Alagbe, writing for learnbonds.com, shares his belief that Dexmet expanded metals could be a cost-reduction solution. Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) needs to reduce the cost of batteries if it wants to sell the Model 3 for a price that is affordable for the masses. Tesla will begin taking pre-orders for the Model 3 on March 31 as part of a grand plan to take EVs to the mainstream market. Tesla’s Model 3 is an affordable EV priced at $35,000 before tax incentives and it preorder requires a $1,000 deposit. The car will be a sedan, about 20% smaller in size than the Model S and it will have a mileage of at least 200 miles on a single charge. The firm has been tight-lipped about what to expect from the Model 3 but we have enough hints, leaks and rumors to paint a fairly- accurate picture of the Model 3.

Dexmet will be exhibiting this year at the IEEE International Symposium on Electromagnetic Compatibility, July 25-29, 2016 held at the Shaw Center, Ottawa Canada Hall. Dexmet will be located in booth# 726 and we will be introducing Mark Graf, Business Development Industrial Technologies. Mark will be interested in speaking to the attendees on the benefits of our material in new shielding applications.

While this trade show was held a few months back in May of 2015 in Baltimore, Maryland, engineers from various aircraft manufacturers paid us a visit to get samples of our MicroGrid® thin expanded metal foils for upcoming programs that they are working on. Enjoy the photos.
