5 Mistakes to Avoid in Product Development
Everyone has been there. Done that. Mistakes are a part of life and certainly part of the learning process. Here are some of the key mistakes observed in hundreds of product development teams. Knowing this, forewarned is fore-armed. How many of these do you recognize?
Make Big, Stronger Parts With Near-Net Shape Technology
Product News 5/27/2016
Post a comment
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.

HP Launches 3D Printing Production Tech & Open Materials Market
Engineering Materials 5/17/2016
HP has launched its long-heralded Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing technology for commercial-scale end-production, plus an ecosystem to go with it. The package could change the entire industrial market for making end-products with additive manufacturing. At the very least, it will be game-changing.
3D Printing Database Creators Invent Material/Machine Datasets
Engineering Materials 5/9/2016
The creators of the free, searchable Senvol Database have begun issuing a new set of industrial additive manufacturing and 3D printing tools for engineers wanting to use additive technology for end-production: datasets for AM material characterization.
What Engineers Can Learn from the Maker Movement
Electronics News 4/14/2016
The so-called “maker movement” may not be big on degrees and formal training, but it can teach the engineering community valuable lessons in product design, an expert at UBM’s Embedded Systems Conference said this week.
Forget doping. Officials at this year’s Tour de France are looking for a very different form of cheating -- electric motors hidden inside the seat tubes of bicycles.
Through my first-hand experience at MEMS Engineer Forum in Japan, it’s clear to me that the IoT is real and that the Japanese are amply prepared for it and are executing on it today.
A new fixings and fastening system for assembling structural, load-bearing composite components promises 54% better adhesion, plus less weight and better mechanical performance than current composite fixing designs.
A cross-disciplinary team of scientists at Harvard University have invented a bionic leaf that can turn solar energy into fuel.
Following in the tracks of the fabled rocket plane programs of the 1940s, NASA engineers are now laying the plans for a new twist on the future of aviation -- a battery-powered airplane.
