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.

Advertised as the "Most Powerful Tablet Under $100," the Kindle Fire HD 6 was too tempting for the team at iFixit to pass up. Join us to find out if inexpensive means cheap, irreparable, or just down right economical. It's teardown time!
The first photos made with a 3D-printed telescope are here and they're not as fuzzy as you might expect. A team from the University of Sheffield beat NASA to the goal. The photos of the Moon were made with a reflecting telescope that cost the research team £100 to make (about $161 US).
At Medical Design & Manufacturing Midwest, Joe Wascow told Design News how Optimal Design prototyped a machine that captures the wing-beat of a duck.
The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
