Converting Machined Parts to Die Castings
While there are a number of situations where machined parts are a good option, it is clear that even with fairly low volumes, die casting is something that should be considered, as it is often the better option.
How Advanced Materials Improve Aerospace Engines
As aerospace manufacturers look for high-temperature materials that increase performance, improve fuel efficiency and satisfy safety standards, while lowering manufacturing costs, advanced ceramics and high-performance superalloys play an increasingly important role in aerospace engine design.
Recovery rates for wounded U.S. soldiers are improving dramatically because of advanced processes for producing custom cranial implants.
Boeing Eyes Next-Generation Composites
Boeing's next-generation aircraft, developed with NASA, will use up to 90 percent composites and be delivered as an integrated assembly, eliminating the need for thousands of fasteners.
More than 350 fittings are available in standard configurations including barbed ends for tubing, threads, caps and plugs.
Design collaboration now includes the entire value chain. From suppliers to customers, purchasing to outside experts, the collaborative design team includes internal and external groups. The design process now stretches across the globe in multiple software formats.
Researchers have developed a hybrid energy harvester for generating electricity from multiple spectrums of solar energy.
A new high-pressure injection-molding technology produces near-net shape parts with 2-inch-thick walls from high-performance materials like PEEK, PAI, and carbon-filled polymers. Parts show no voids, sinks, or porosity, have more consistent mechanical properties, and are stronger.
These futuristic military robots will help soldiers and other military personnel better perform their duties.
Icon Labs has developed a whitepaper to help determine the type of cybersecurity needed based on the type of device.
