The 2012 Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) conference included a number of informative sessions that I’ll be blogging about over the next few weeks. One session focused on inkjet 3D printing.
According to some at the conference, inkjetting is one of the most versatile forms of 3D printing. Multijet printing technology certainly lends credibility to the claim. The most versatile…Continue

How many of you are like me and will probably die with a student loan balance? Are you constantly looking for a solution that will resolve your student loan repayment situations. There may be help and it may be soon. (I use the verb "may" with added caution.) In 2008, United States President, George W. Bush, signed into legislation a "Loan Forgiveness" bill that includes students and graduates in the engineering field/profession. President Bush's desire was to encourage more of his citizens…Continue

I am in Philadelphia, Pa., just having attended the MD& M show where I met with Ken Gazda and Jeff McManus of Rexroth Bosch Group. Mr. Gazda and Mr. McManus showed me Rexroth’s new designs in automation. From lean engineering, to assembly (such as, dispensing), to engineering tools, to linear motion, Rexroth has created tools that simplify connection to its devices. Rexroth’s inline I/O systems has the ability to interconnect with multiple devices through a daisy chain, while saving…Continue

So, in response to the blog post from yesterday, here are two rules that could guide how component revisions impact assembly-level revisions. This is a tricky call to make because if you always let minor changes to low-level parts trigger new revisions to your top-level product assemblies (and all the intervening sub-assemblies), you end up…

Are your communities, schools, and/or local governments collaboratively working together to encourage and groom future STEM professionals? With the lack of scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians in our nation, it would seem to be a novel idea to promote these industries. One community has embraced the deficiencies in the STEM field and has taken a proactive approach in solving a growing epidemic: Cleveland, Ohio.
Last night, I attended an ACE (architecture,…Continue
