Dot-Ten(TM) Eurocard Shielded front panels incorporate injector/ejector handles that conform to IEEE 11010.10, as specified in VME64 Extensions, Compact PCI, and other Eurocard modules. The handles provide enough leverage to overcome the insertion/extraction forces of the connectors, which can reach up to 170 lbs. Other handle features: an alignment pin built into the handle bracket, a provision for a microswitch to use in live insertion systems, and a latching mechanism that ensures board retention in high shock and vibration environments. The front panels also come complete with an EMC gasket for card cages and enclosures requiring EMI/RFI attenuation.

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.
