    Did you know that aluminum oxide, the protective layer formed by anodising aluminium, is almost as hard as a diamond making it extremely abrasion resistant? It also offers excellent resistance against corrosion. If you need to protect your aluminium part from a harsh working environment or even just add a decorative finish, then anodising could well be the answer. With Protolabs now offering anodising as a service, we can help you make sure that you get it right by answering all of your questions. What is anodising?

    On Tuesday 19 March 2019 Norsk Hydro - one of the world's largest aluminium producers - was hit by a ransomware attack.

Cyber attacks can be hugely detrimental to businesses of all sizes with operational and financial implications. The resulting damage to businesses depends on the nature of the attack and how well placed the business is in both preparing for it and tackling it once it has taken place. Last year...

    Hello Everyone, I spotted this good news story and wanted to share with you.

More details on these new apprenticeships can be seen here The most exciting thing about these apprenticeships is that one-fifth of these new apprenticeships will be offered directly to its existing workforce. The idea being that these apprenticeships enable their staff to build their careers...

    Hi @Howard Stafstrom, To help you identify a solution it would be great to understand more about the problem you are facing. How many bottles do you need to store? How big are they? How quickly do they get used? How quickly can you get an empty bottle replaced? Any other info would be great. Best regards Jim.
