Q-Mark’s ultra-light M2 right-angle stylus holder is used to measure internal grooves and perpendicular bores. The holder is a lightweight alternative to using star hubs or knuckle joints with threaded styli for right-angle probing. The holder weighs 2.40 g, accommodates any unthreaded stylus and enables more rigidity because no additional parts are needed. It easily reaches into tight spaces, simplifying part setup and programming.

    Lockheed Martin’s precision machining of composite skin sections for the F-35 provides part of the reason why this plane saves money for U.S. taxpayers. That machining makes the plane compelling in ways that have led other countries to take up some of the cost. Here is a look at a high-value, highly engineered machining process for the Joint Strike Fighter aircraft.
