Neutralizing Nature: Controlling the Environment in Aerospace

If your goal is to send a billion-dollar satellite into space or to maintain precision defense systems aboard aircraft tasked with defending the nation, environmental variations aren't so much the spice of life as an endless minefield of potential hazards that could destroy your mission. In the unforgiving aerospace sector, the idea is not to celebrate nature but to neutralize it, creating artificial environments that remain precisely clean and stable, wherever the equipment or payload you're assembling, transporting and sending aloft happens to be.

Optimizing Next-gen Machine Vision Platform To Enhance Automated Inspection

With machine vision’s development and growth in the Industry 4.0 environment, the higher computing performance becomes essential to acquire high resolution images at high speeds, and expanding FOV (field of view). The associated hardware must therefore significantly enhance reliability, to guarantee smooth operation of the production line. Read this white paper to know more about characteristics the next-gen machine vison platform need.

Combating Driver Fatigue with Mobile Surveillance

Driver fatigue is a leading cause of traffic accidents for heavy-duty vehicles such as mining trucks, excavators, bulldozers, cranes, cargo trucks, and buses. Their drivers need a rapid alert system to keep them awake and on the road. Find out about an in-vehicle surveillance platform that uses a camera to monitor drivers for fatigue, analyzing video in real-time to activate alerts and wireless communications.

Algorithms for Change Point Analysis

Given a series of data, change point analysis involves detecting the number and location of change points, locations in the data where some feature, for example the mean, changes. This has applications in a wide variety of areas, including: Finance, quality control, genetics, environmental studies and medicine. - A brief description linking to NAG Library routines that may help in your applications.

Optimize Production for Agile Manufacturing

This e-book will show how 3D printing can make dramatic improvements in both time and cost efficiency when compared with traditional production methods associated with these applications. Real world examples are also provided to show that these aren’t just hypothetical scenarios. The companies highlighted in this e-book found a way to transform traditional manufacturing applications using FDM technology and bring their operation to a new level.

3D Printed Jigs and Fixtures Save Time and Reduce Cost

There is an often-overlooked additive manufacturing (AM) application with potentially huge financial returns: jig and fixture making. Replacing conventionally manufactured jigs and fixtures with additively manufactured ones will reduce the fabrication expense, while reducing labor and speeding delivery. But that financial advantage is tiny when compared to the profit gains that result from production-floor reductions in labor and time to market. Learn how four owners of Stratasys Fortus 3D printers justified new AM systems based solely on jigs and fixtures.
