Minnesota Rubber/QMR Plastics has published a new 120-page Elastomer And Thermoplastics Engineering Guide for design engineers. This detailed reference book is a comprehensive design tool for simple or complex rubber and plastic components design, including assemblies. This new guide is also available in a CD version for easy computer downloads of drawings, tables, and sections of special interest. To get a copy of either version, go to www.mnrubber.com.
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.
