News Flash: Check out "Manufacturers Turn to 3-D Printing" - see how 3D printing is going from prototyping to full scall manufacturing. This additive manufacturing process is also used in micro maching, including MEMS packaging. Good overview article. Here is a great video on what 3D printers are (thanks Carrie, for the link): 3D Printing in Space?
Interpreting Chemical Labels
This safety learning module covers the content and interpretation of chemical labels and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Diamond and ratings.
MEMS fabrication requires the use of many chemicals, many of which have potential hazards. Therefore, before working in a fabrication facility one must know how to locate and interpret information found on chemical labels. NFPA diamonds are found throughout fabrication facilities as well as seen in everyday life. These diamonds are used to provide a quick visual of the potential hazards associated with a chemical; therefore, one should be able to interpret the colors and numbers seen on a NFPA diamond. This learning module provides the information and the practice to do just that.
This category contains an Instructor Guide, Participant Guide and supporting presentations.
