Building on the capabilities of its Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) platform, UGS has released a new version of its Tecnomatix digital manufacturing software with better integration to its core Teamcenter suite.
Tecnomatix 8 is the first release of the manufacturing software to support general assembly workflow within native Teamcenter and is the most major upgrade to the package since it was acquired by UGS last April. The improved integration, UGS officials say, will deliver an enterprise integration environment for manufacturing planning, simulation, documentation and execution of assembly processing, helping companies gain greater control of their product development and production processes by working with a single source of manufacturing knowledge.
The other major enhancement in Tecnomatix 8 is Process Simulate Robotics, a next-generation robotic and automation process planning and simulation tool that aims to help companies take planning to the next level. Process Simulate Robotics provides manufacturers with full line simulation, synchronization, programming and commissioning capabilities, including robot gardens, material flow and human activity.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
Healthcare might seem to be an unlikely target application for the Internet of Things technology, but recent developments show small ways that big-data is going to make an impact on patient care moving into the future.
As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
