Extruded aluminum gives engineers freedom to design a wide variety of shapes for a wide variety of purposes. It offers cost-saving functionality, unique aesthetic opportunities, and environmental friendliness.
To get the most out of this material and manufacturing process, engineers need to know how to design the right shape so it costs the least, is simplest to manufacture, and best fits the application's structural requirements. At the Design News webinar on June 27 at 2:00 p.m. ET (11:00 a.m. PT), participants will learn all of this. They will also find out how the economics of extrusion-based structures compare to structures made of other materials, how to select alloys, best-practices in profile design, and the practical limits to using recycled materials.
Join Craig Werner, chairman of the Aluminum Extruders Council's Academy program and president of Werner Extrusion Solutions LLC, as he discusses how to design structurally-sound, efficient shapes from extruded aluminum that help save time and cost, and help participants assess specific component designs.
I'm really looking forward to moderating this webinar. The speaker has a huge amount of information on designing better shapes, sometimes by just implementing a slight change, that can make the part not only less expensive but also easier to manufacture.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
Neil Fromer is the executive director of the Resnick Institute, a program for energy and sustainability at the California Institute of Technology, working to develop new ideas and research technologies related to providing a sustainable future. He spoke to us about the severity of the current drought in California and how solar energy can help prevent such situations in the future.
From home enthusiasts to workers on the manufacturing floor, everyone's imagination is captured by the potential of 3D printing. Prototyping, spare parts creation, art delivery, human organ creation, and even mass product production are all being targeted as current and potential uses for the technology.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
