The Hägglunds CBM hydraulic motor from Bosch Rexroth was created to take over from the tried-and-true Hägglunds Marathon motor. The Hägglunds CBM packs 50% more torque into a motor that is smaller and up to 50% lighter than its predecessor, giving it a high torque-to-weight ratio.

Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
The term "multiphysics" is used to describe the simulation of multiple types of physics and their influence on one another -- for example, the investigation of the behavior of a chemical in liquid form will involve both chemistry and fluid dynamics.
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.
