When we choose what to buy, we usually look at the expiration date, brand, quality seals, ingredients, and price. But how do you know if the manufacturer is fully honest – or that the product was properly stored during shipping or while on the shelf?
Solder flux has a large impact on final product quality. This article reviews how to use flux during soldering and how to decide on the right technology options for your project.
Built to perfection, Pagani Automobili combines beauty and attention to detail with the best racing technology
Your new PCBA project design needs to pass production validation testing (PVT) to prove it's ready for production. The planning you did for cost, quality assurance, quality control, and scalability now positions your project for success.
KIT researchers are developing a process with which, for the first time, mirrors with a reflection of more than 99 percent can be printed in variable sizes
Glass processing is particularly demanding on linear motion components with its abrasive environment and high production rates. Glass edge grinding is a common process where the sharp edges of cut raw glass are finished for safe handling and to reduce chipping defects that can lead to breakages.
A brief guide to creating a digital twin with LoRaWAN® sensors.
Deep-learning algorithms are enabling powerful video analytics. A practical use in manufacturing is monitoring human actions in manual operations. Some assemblies require specific torquing sequences, which can't always be tracked with traditional methods. AI-based Computer Vision advances quality management.
Open and honest communication is crucial to a successful design. Product and engineering decision-makers need to work in sync.
DESMA’s unit sole machine is a real heavyweight; the casting unit alone weighs 270kg and moves on linear guides, pouring liquid polyurethane into moulds. In order to reliably carry out the task with shoe manufacturers worldwide, DESMA relies on robust linear technology from HepcoMotion.
The smallest design decisions can have a significant impact on the cost of your CNC machined parts. Do you know how to reduce the cost by a few adjustments to your part design? Please have a look at the 5 design tips which contain processing hole, manufacturing surface and parts depth.
