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.

A bold, gold, open-air coupe may not be the ticket to automotive nirvana for every consumer, but Lexus’ LF-C2 concept car certainly turned heads at the recent Los Angeles Auto Show. What’s more, it may provide a glimpse of the luxury automaker’s future.
Perhaps you didn't know that there are a variety of classes, both live and archived, offered via the Design News Continuing Education Center (CEC) sponsored by Digi-Key? The best part – they are free!
Engineer comic Don McMillan explains the fun engineers have with team-building exercises. Can you relate?
The complexity of diesel engines means optimizing their performance requires a large amount of experimentation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful and intuitive tool in this, and cold flow analysis using CFD is an ideal approach to study the flow characteristics without going into the details of chemical reactions occurring during the combustion.
The damage to Sony from the cyber attack seems to have been heightened by failure to follow two basic security rules.
