More information and registration
Advancements in fasteners and adhesives are raising their performance, from better strength, to stability, to rigidity. But as a wider variety of materials is used for products, joining them securely and reliably is getting complex. New structural adhesive technologies can join disparate materials and can be easily integrated into high-volume production lines. Fastener makers and users are coming up with attachment designs that are smaller, stronger, and weigh less.
Optimize for Additive Manufacturing
Date: 5/7/2015
View archived webinar
Designing for additive manufacturing requires a new mindset. Simply designing traditional parts and producing with additive manufacturing will likely result in more costly, slower to produce results. In order to truly benefit from the advantages of the additive process, designers must think differently when designing parts. Topology optimization is a technology that generated ideal structural parts based on loading conditions and the actual intended use of the part. Attend the webinar to learn more.
Leveraging 3D Printing for Production Planning and Tooling Design
Date: 3/31/2015
View archived webinar
This webinar will bring to light the untapped value of growing jig and fixture tooling using 3D printing. You will learn how this method can substantially simplify and accelerate manufacturing production planning, bringing immediate and high-impact benefits to your organization, while discovering how it can raise jigs and fixtures to new levels of performance because the design constraints associated with traditionally manufactured tooling are removed. Moreover, 3D printed jigs and fixtures are “throwaways”: if it breaks or goes out of tolerance, simply toss it and print another in a matter of hours – with the ability to make as-needed tooling adjustments.

Festo, Maxon Precision Motors, Unitronics
View archived webinar
Industrial automation continues to benefit from the fruits of the mechatronics industry, namely the increasing inclusion of electronics within the traditional mechanics. However, as this integration grows stronger, more smarts are needed from the design team to ensure that the mechanics are taking full advantage of al that the electronics subsystem has to offer. In the industrial automation space, some of these terms and technologies are less well-known. Never fear, as we’ll discuss these topics in detail on this webinar, ensuring that you can maximize the mechatronics technologies that are at your disposal.
