Welcome to My Nightmare: The heads of Distortions Unlimited started a business in horror-themed masks and props, but when they built an animatronic electric chair, they force monumental change in an unsuspecting industry.
Traditional manufacturing methods, like machining and injection molding, have many rules, restrictions, and limitations. These rules don’t apply when using direct digital manufacturing. Designers are free to concentrate on the best design and not concern themselves with manufacturability.
Desktop 3D printers allow designers and engineers to fail more, and as a result, iterate quicker, innovate faster, and invent more. Also, the earth has upped its ante when it comes to proving that man has made alterations to the ecosphere.
3D laser scanning technology is helping companies get the data they need in product design including inspection, CAD comparison, reverse engineering, and more.
In product design and development, efficiency is key. Read this white paper to learn about 3D technology that helps companies design better products faster
Everybody loves the style and lavish performance of high-end luxury vehicles like the Mercedes Black Series. Similarly, who doesn’t' like a really fast boat? As a company that has made itself synonymous with performance boats, it seems only fitting that Cigarette Racing share design concepts with the likes of Mercedes.
As robots are becoming more powerful and useful by the minute, design engineers struggle to make each new design more autonomous, fluid, and life-like. Still, others are simply designed for recreational purposes, such as Project Hexapod's 4,000-pound, six legged hydraulic robot, Stompy.
In the electronics industry, contract manufacturing has long been a strategy for reducing time to market and simplifying project oversight. With today's complex production environment, you need to ensure the intricacies of your project are addressed — without adding extra cost. And that means doing your homework. In our white paper, "Contract Manufacturing Pitfalls: What the Wrong Production Process Could Really Cost You," we uncover eight hidden cost centers — and show you how to avoid them. Read our white paper now!
In the ever competitive marketplace companies need to take advantage of the technologies that are available to them. Replacing dated technologies like the paper chart recorder with better more advanced technologies seems like a logical choice but many companies have been reluctant to change or simply not be aware of the cost savings involved. By using a modern humidity and temperature data logger users have the advantage of better accuracy, more functionality, less maintenance and an overall cost savings.
The FDA mandates validation of incubators, refrigerators, freezers, stability chambers, warehouses, and other controlled environments. Download this NEW application note, which covers five key questions you need to have answered in planning a temperature and humidity mapping study that complies with current GxP guidance. Ensure that your next environmental mapping project is aligned with the core principles behind validation.
A 3D printer is a machine that creates objects from plastic or other materials using an additive manufacturing process. Additive manufacturing produces objects in a succession of layers from the bottom, up. This is the opposite of traditional subtractive manufacturing processes.
What happened to airplanes that simply landed and took off on solid ground, and occasionally on water? ICON Aircraft first caught our attention with the debut of its ICON 5 amphibious aircraft, which is capable of landing on land and water, while being able to cruise the seas like a jet ski. Enter Lisa Airplanes, the latest designer to wow us with the AKOYA amphibious skiplane.
In this collection four experts discuss several ways to reduce the risks of failed inspections, bad measurement practices, and poor product quality in controlled environments. Topics span from measurement accuracy, uncertainty, stability, and traceability, to a discussion of wired v. wireless connectivity for sensing instruments, to FDA inspection preparation and 483 responses. These articles offer a surfeit of tweaks, tips, and tricks for developing better quality management systems for GxP-compliant environmental monitoring applications.
The terms “3D printing” and “additive manufacturing” refer to processes that automatically build objects layer by layer from computer data. The technology is already well-used in many sectors including transportation, health care, military and education.
Finite element representations of crash test dummies are widely used in the simulation of vehicle safety systems. Utilize component models from the Abaqus Finite Element Analysis software to validate test data under different loading conditions and rates
