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.

Latest Analysis
2016 engineering grads can expect to earn an average salary of $65,000 right out of the gate. Petroleum engineers' wallets are much fatter, though -- they are expected to earn about $20K more.
3D printing is now adding value to manufacturers at all steps along the business value chain. Come find out how at a talk by John Jaddou at next month's Embedded Systems Conference in Minneapolis.
From IoT and M2M to flexible robotics and consumer HMI, the advances in smart manufacturing are being deployed on the packaging floor.
These new 3D-printing technologies and printers include some that are truly boundary-breaking: a sophisticated new sub-$10,000, 10-plus materials bioprinter, the first industrial-strength silicone 3D-printing service, and a clever twist on 3D printing and thermoforming for making high-quality realistic models.
Ear-based heart-rate monitoring gained momentum recently, as sensor maker Valencell Inc. announced it has licensed its biometric earpiece technology to Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd for use in so-called “hearable devices.”
