David has been advising on interoperability issues and 3D modeling for a long time and has always been a great resource with valuable insights into product development. It will be interesting to get his take on how new advancements in 3D CAD tools and visualization capabilities extend the idea of the virtual product within the organization as well as the kinds of processes engineering groups are putting in place to make that happen.
At the Design News webinar on June 27, learn all about aluminum extrusion: designing the right shape so it costs the least, is simplest to manufacture, and best fits the application's structural requirements.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
