Design News and igus® Inc. have developed the manus plastic plain bearings design contest. The contest—named 'manus' to highlight courage and initiative in breaking new ground in bearing technology—aims to promote new and atypical ways that design engineers have made use of plastic bearings in their applications. Winners will be awarded cash prizes of up to $5,000 and announced at the National Design Engineering Show (NDES) in Chicago, held February 23-26, 2004. Applications are due January 31, 2004. For more information, go to www.designnews.com/manus.
The Industrial Internet of Things may be going off the deep end in connecting everything on the plant floor. Some machines, bearings, or conveyors simply don’t need to be monitored -- even if they can be.
Wind turbines already are imposing structures that stretch high into the sky, but an engineering graduate student at the University of Notre Dame wants to make them even taller to reduce energy costs and improve efficiency.
