Innovative design engineers are incorporating a powerful set of sustainable practices in their product designs to improve the integrity of the product – and not just to reduce their carbon footprint. These practices impact every stage in the product lifecycle from ideation to board layout, to material and component selection, manufacturing and assembly, and end-of-life processing. Not only are these practices desirable, they are becoming mandatory at many leading manufacturers as they can significantly reduce both cost and waste. A deep knowledge of sustainable product design fundamentals is essential in today's competitive product design environment.
Peter Buca, Vice President Technology & Innovation, at Parker Hannifin
, joins Design News' Bruce Rayner for a lively conversation about incorporating the concepts of sustainability in product design.

The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
If you’re developing a product with lots of sensors and no access to the power grid, then you’ll want to take note of a Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Designing Low Power Systems Using Battery and Energy Harvesting Energy Sources."
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
