Estimates manual, automatic, printed circuit board production
This updated software suite includes DFA Version 9.3 and DFM Concurrent Costing® Version 2.2, new versions of previous bundled DFMA modules. The suite is designed to simplify product design, then estimate assembly, labor and part manufacturing costs. The new version offers new tools for comparing costs of automatic versus manual product assembly. The new software also has new tools for estimating costs to manufacture printed circuit boards. These tools include costs for internal and external circuit generation, lamination, AOI testing, hole drilling, solder masking, legend printing, and final circuit testing. It is compatible with Windows 98, 2000 and XP.
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
