Extreme temperatures, humid or wet conditions, situations in which compromised equipment or failure is not an option. It sounds like an action movie, but it’s a reality for vast numbers of engineers around the world on a daily basis. When this hits the fan(belt), the best you can do is control the controllables and make sure your equipment, and connectors, are up to task.
This one-hour webinar will review the attributes of aluminum and the extrusion process, and illustrate how they can be leveraged for effective design solutions. It will focus on the three design variables – alloys, part geometry, fabrication - that make aluminum extrusions a problem solver for product designers and engineers.
Recent advancements in material engineering mean there are increasingly new ways to join things together. Many of these new materials have been developed to optimize engineers' process and performance needs, make processing and assembly easier, increase product durability and, last but not least, ensure the final result is aesthetically pleasing. In this webinar we explore some of the different ways things can be joined and the progress being made in the space.
While Thermal Management is a crucial engineering objective for OEMs, there are many things to consider beyond improving reliability and preventing failure. This webinar will introduce you to the concept of aluminum extrusion as a means to solving thermal management challenges, in addition to its other benefits of weight, cost, and quality.
Knowing where to begin when designing an injection-molded part can be a daunting task. In this webinar we will walk you through what you need to know at the beginning of your design process including understanding key design considerations, avoiding cosmetic defects and improving manufacturability with automated analysis.
Rotary encoders are used in many machine and automation applications requiring precise shaft position and motion information. This webcast will look at the latest developments in position sensors, including inductive, optical, and magnetic encoders, and the impact of processing speeds, user programmability and accuracy required in today's applications.
While additive manufacturing has been on the scene since the early 1980s, many designers are still struggling to leverage its full potential. Join Jaideep Bangal, solidThinking Application Engineer, as he presents strategies for reducing part weight and increasing performance by pairing additive manufacturing with early-stage concept generation.
