The National Institute of Standards and Technology now offers a new compilation of chemical and physical data in the NIST Chemistry Webbook at webbook.nist.gov. The web edition contains thermochemical properties, infrared spectral data, vapor pressure data, and mass spectral data. Access is currently free and is part of the more than 50 databases available from NIST.
Design collaboration now includes the entire value chain. From suppliers to customers, purchasing to outside experts, the collaborative design team includes internal and external groups. The design process now stretches across the globe in multiple software formats.
A new high-pressure injection-molding technology produces near-net shape parts with 2-inch-thick walls from high-performance materials like PEEK, PAI, and carbon-filled polymers. Parts show no voids, sinks, or porosity, have more consistent mechanical properties, and are stronger.
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.
