Almost anyone can build a two-stage model rocket, but Joe Peck took a giant step for rocketeers and added four second stages. Think of them as MIRVs, microcontroller-ignited rocket vehicles. Shortly after the rocket takes flight, a Microchip Technology MCU detects the absence of a pin attached to the launch platform and sequences through a firing order for the second stages as the booster rocket continues its climb. Mission Control, we have liftoff.
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.
