Sponsored Technology Content Design Tips for Engineers: Welding Aluminum ExtrusionsIn partnership with Hydro Aluminum
Welding aluminum isn't difficult, its just different. Different from welding steel that is. It is the unique combination of light weight and relatively high strength makes aluminum the second most popular metal welded today. Learn what makes welding aluminum a bit different from steel. Read More A New Multi-Shot Injection Molding ProcessIn partnership with Phillips Plastics
Does your design call for a part requiring the elasticity of rubber combined with the strength and rigidity of thermoplastic? If so, a new manufacturing technique may provide the best solution with components that offer high performance with reduced material and production costs. Read More Are Standards required for Tire Pressure monitoring systems?Tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) are required on all vehicles sold in the United States since Sept. 1, 2007. However, servicing tires and replacing the TPMS have issues that are gaining recognition in many circles. Guest expert Mark Shaw from Freescale Semiconductor provides insight into the situation and proposes answers. Read More

In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
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 discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
