Coming Soon - 10x Faster Finite Element Analysis of Injection Molded Parts. The Secret? Faster Mid-Surface Modeling and Meshing!

The process of creating midsurface geometry and finite element meshes of injection molded plastics such as automotive interior trim components, aircraft overhead bins, and electronic cases can require extracting dozens of planar and curved midsurfaces, adjoining specific free edges, meshing, and more. Unfortunately with existing finite element pre/post processors, the process can require multiple days to complete.

Coming Soon - Advancing Aerospace Production with Metal Additive Manufacturing

In this Webinar, you’ll hear firsthand from Honeywell Aerospace experts on the advantages additive manufacturing provided Honeywell for development of metal components made from the nickel-based superalloy Inconel 718. Honeywell officially used Inconel 718 and electron beam melting to make the first Aerospace component which was an experimental design of an existing tube used on its HTF7000 engine. Don and Brian will explain how this process holds the promise of reducing manufacturing costs by 50 percent and dramatically reducing production / delivery time.

Would you like to ride in a Hyperloop?

This week's Question: A Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) team took top honors this month at a competition to design the Hyperloop, a high-speed transportation concept from Tesla Motors and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk. In the absence of air or surface friction, the Hyperloop design enables passenger pods to travel through airless tubes at more than 600 mph. Using low-energy propulsion systems, the Hyperloop theoretically utilizes air pressure to “hover” above a track. MIT's team will now have the opportunity to build and test its design in the US. The researchers will perform simulations, try out braking systems, and, with great caution, test dangerously strong magnets. What do you think? Would you like to ride in a Hyperloop?
