UQM Technologies has been awarded a contract from Eaton Corporation under a U.S. Department of Energy contract to develop hybrid propulsion components for trucks and other heavy-duty vehicles. UQM will be developing the motor and controller while Eaton will be developing a highly integrated hybrid electric propulsion system. Eaton will be readying these vehicles for the 2007 emissions standards. Hybrid propulsion systems usually have a smaller engine. For more information go to www.uqm.com or www.eaton.com.
This slideshow includes several versions of multi-materials machines, two different composites processes including one at microscale, and two vastly different metals processes. Potential game-changers down the line include three microscale processes.
Hosted CAD or PDM systems is an emerging technology that offers many advantages over traditional on premise workstation CAD configurations and is making many companies rethink how to deliver future CAD software solutions.
