When it comes to mechanical design services, more companies are now choosing to hire outside help for handling their various projects. This is so because reducing production costs is one of the prime goals of any company. Unless a company can control its expenses, it can never really expect to make the most of the revenue that it earns. Choosing a service provider that particularly specializes in delivering… Continue

Steel fabrication is the building of steel structures by first cutting, then bending and finally assembling all the parts. This three-step fabrication process requires various metalworking specialties. That’s why manufacturing, industrial and construction companies hire and consult steel fabricators to provide structural steel fabrication and installation services. Manufacturers or industries need to pay special attention to the design consultation phase in order… Continue

Injection molding is one of the most popular forms of contemporary manufacturing. It’s a process wherein the solid for the part is fed into a fiery barrel, mixed and then forced into a mold cavity it’s here that the part cools and earns the shape of the cavity.
History of Plastic Injection Molding
It was John Wesley - an American inventor was the first person who patented the plastic molding machine in year 1872. During that time the molded plastics… Continue

Product cost is one of the prominent factors that manufacturers strive to reduce through evaluating number of design alternatives. It is for this reason why simulation tools are being extensively exploited, so that conventional design can be altered to an extent where products can be developed competitively in terms of price and quality.
As such,… Continue

Rendered 3D models are always being considered as a marketing document for most of the organizations. There’s always a negative side associated with rendered models as they consume high amount of computational power, making it a time consuming process that designers usually avoid to perform during the design phase. However, 3D renderings developed using modern CAD tools such as SolidWorks and Inventor can be beneficial even in… Continue

Last year, a Santa Clara, CA startup named GPiO set out to solve the problem of comparing hardware components across vendors. With a veteran audio engineer as one of their founders, they decided to start with the microphone component and grow from there to other verticals.
They gathered more than 60 of the top microphones from vendors like Knowles, ST, Cirrus and nvensense, then measured them objectively in their own lab. GPiO, has launched its site… Continue
