Rearden Commerce has produced a green-focused personal assistant that provides business travelers and organizations with a “Total Green Travel Experience” when booking travel and related services. The assistant’s functions include a “Carbon Calculator,” hybrid car services and Web and audio conferencing. The tool is designed to help users save time and make green travel choices. The Carbon Calculator shows users “Did You Know” factoids on the amount of emissions produced by the flight they’re booking. The assistant then offers the user a convenient and eco-friendly option of booking an audio or Web conference as an alternative. If the user clicks on the link and takes advantage of the alternative, the calculator shows the number of pounds of carbon dioxide that have been saved from entering the atmosphere.
As manufacturers add new technologies to their products, designing for compliance becomes more difficult. Prepare for the certification testing process. Otherwise, you increase the risk of discovering a safety issue after a product leaves the assembly line. That will cause significant time-to-market delays, be much costlier to fix, and damage your brand in the eyes of customers.
Stratasys will be exhibiting two groundbreaking large-scale additive manufacturing technologies, as well as other new products, next month at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago.
Two new technologies from Stratasys, created in partnership with Boeing, Ford, and Siemens, will bring accurate, repeatable manufacturing of very large thermoplastic end products, and much bigger composite parts, onto the factory floor for industries including automotive and aerospace.
