The problem of localized corrosion is about to get a harder punch now that engineers at the Southwest Research Institute have developed the Multielectrode Array Sensor System (MASS). MASS uses miniature electrodes to detect where localized corrosion is occurring in everyday structures such as bridges and airplanes. With earlier detection, problems caused by localized corrosion—one of the most common ways for engineering components to fail—can be fixed easily and promptly.

This slideshow includes several versions of multi-materials machines, two different composites processes including one at microscale, and two vastly different metals processes. Potential game-changers down the line include three microscale processes.
Hosted CAD or PDM systems is an emerging technology that offers many advantages over traditional on premise workstation CAD configurations and is making many companies rethink how to deliver future CAD software solutions.
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.
