Still sweating over what to do about a New Year’s resolution? Here’s a harmless one to get you started–how about participating in Design News’ annual Best Product Awards. All you have to do is tell us about the most amazing product you’ve designed in 2009 and it could be profiled along with other great new products in our special issue that comes out in April. Enter by Jan. 15 and you could get the credit you deserve!
At the Design News webinar on June 27, learn all about aluminum extrusion: designing the right shape so it costs the least, is simplest to manufacture, and best fits the application's structural requirements.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
