Understand the essential functions of equipment enclosures and know whether a modular or unibody construction would work best for your facility’s specific needs.
While designing for industrial-grade 3D printing has fewer considerations than traditional manufacturing processes, elements such as resolution, surface finish, feature size and build orientation can impact part performance. By weighing important design techniques, process requirements and materials, stereolithography (SLA) and selective laser sintering (SLS) can be leveraged for both cosmetically appealing and functional 3D-printed prototypes and components.
The introduction of collaborative robots has democratized the use of robotics in many manufacturing fields. Because of their human scaled features, ease of use and flexibility, it is then more interesting to have one on the assembly line. The investment is also lower and the payback is faster than it used to be. Do all these advantages mean it is time to introduce these co-workers to work alongside your human co-workers? Let's find out in this webinar.
One of the design and development constraints in additive manufacturing (AM) is that most design engineers still think in conventional manufacturing contexts. However, there increasingly are advances in AI and cloud computing tools dedicated to AM. This one-hour webcast will show how to approach designing AM parts and explore goal-directed/generative design advancements that have enabled design engineers to describe their problems and objectives and let software optimize the design.
On June 1 new Dept. of Energy standards established for commercial and industrial electric motors, go into effect. The new standards broaden the type and number of electric motors effected. OEMs machine builders will be significantly impacted. This webinar will explain the DoE standards; how and why they began and how the US market is responding. Learn how motor manufacturers are meeting the standards and the impact they expect they will have going forward.
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.
