White paper: Improving Medical Devices with Force Sensing Technology
Tekscan 

Learn how integrating force sensors improves medical devices by providing quantifiable and actionable data to doctors and patients. Explore a variety of medical applications that benefit from force sensing technology.
White paper: Adjustable bolted connections - an improvement over welding or bolting in large machines - 3 examples
Halfen USA 

Large machines consist of many parts and sub-assemblies, mounted onto a frame or chassis. The use of proprietary mounting channel instead of welding or traditional fasteners such as hex bolts to connect these components together reduces design complexity and creates a more common platform. Manufacturers with varying customer requirements are able to deliver faster, smooth production peaks and troughs, and achieve savings in labor, stock keeping costs and reject rates by using mounting channel.
White paper: Moving Automation with Modbus
Linak 

This white paper describes the Modbus communication protocol and why it can be such an effective solution for linear actuation when embedded in electric actuators. An understanding of Modbus, motion devices and levels of complexity for designing a complete actuation system can help industrial automation design engineers determine the appropriate solution for applications.
White paper: 3D Printing with FDM: How it Works
Stratasys 

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.
White paper: Versatile Epoxy Compounds For Electronic Applications

Master Bond, Inc. 

Enhancing the performance of electronic applications with versatile epoxy compounds.
