Four new publications from ISO can help design engineers cut through the maze of new international management standards. One book is the 586-page "ISO 14000 Environmental Management." It contains the 20 published documents presently comprising ISO's family of environmental standards, plus related technical reports and draft standards. Also, two free brochures assist in understanding and implementing the recently revised ISO 9000:2000 series of standards for quality management. They are "Quality Management Principles" and "ISO 9000: Selection and Use." In addition, the fifth edition of "The ISO Directory of ISO 9000 and ISO 14000 Accreditation and Certification Bodies" is now out. All four publications are available from the ISO Central Secretariat at email@example.com. Specify if you want French versions.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
