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.
With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
The Industrial Internet of Things is bringing a previously reluctant process industry into the wireless fold. The ability to connect smart sensors to the Internet has spiked the demand for wireless devices in process manufacturing, according to the new study from ARC Advisory Group.
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.
