Hello Ann--Great post. Well you've done it again, made me look like a hero. My company has been looking for methods to improve packaging and reduce costs for one client; i.e. Universal Assemblies, LLC in East Tennessee. This looks like one method of doing just that. They build to order and have minimal inventory of finished products. The problem arises with companies supplying components in cardboard cartons and not returnables. We then have to purchase suitable containers to re-ship assemblies. These must be robust and go the distance relative to shipments by common carriers, UPS, FedEx, etc. etc. Many thanks for the information. Again--great information.

Healthcare might seem to be an unlikely target application for the Internet of Things technology, but recent developments show small ways that big-data is going to make an impact on patient care moving into the future.
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
