With the ever-increasing variety of latching products on the market today, engineers who design enclosures have lots to learn. And now they have a place to get some schooling. DIRAK Inc. has opened a new training center in Chantilly, VA. The center features an application gallery, live demos, design classes with DIRAK's technical experts, and a resource library. Some of the programs focus on applying the company's "intelligent" electronic latches. For more information, visit http://rbi.ims.ca/3849-526.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
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.
