Why Your Leak Test Doesn’t Measure Up – and What Data Can Do About It

The struggle to test for and address leaks that lead to faulty parts isn’t new, but rising expectations for product quality are adding to the importance of today’s leak test. There are so many variables and potential points of failure that can skew the accuracy and consistency of the test. By making the test “smarter” with sensors, software, and analytics, you can manage variables faster and more reliably.

Non-Toxic Material Generates Electricity Through Heat, Cold Air

Imagine a body sensor powered by one's jewelry, or a cooking pan that charges a cell phone in a few hours.Using a combination of the chemical elements calcium, cobalt, and terbium, University of Utah researchers created an efficient, inexpensive and bio-friendly material that generates electricity through a thermoelectric process involving heat and cold air.

Integrating 3D Printing into the Product Development Process at Volvo Construction Equipment

In conjunction with SAE3D printing in the product development process is becoming increasingly important with the increase in the pace of the construction industry. Volvo Construction Equipment (CE) has embraced this into its work process. Equipped with a Stratasys Eden 260V, Volvo CE has the ability to create engine component prototypes that are mounted directly on the engine and then tested. Volvo CE also quickly builds 3D models of its new product concepts for stakeholders to get timely feedback, reducing risk and lead time in all development stages. This advantage gives Volvo CE the ability to make better project decisions throughout the development and production cycles.

Designing Disinfectant-Ready Medical Devices

Frequent exposure to aggressive disinfectants and drugs, as well as repeated physical strain, damages medical device housings and hardware made with commonly used materials. Device failures not only impact quality of patient care but also increase overall operational costs. Choosing a material that can withstand these harsh conditions without compromising durability is essential to preventing cracks, crazes, and premature failure and prolonging housing longevity. This is especially true as portability becomes increasingly important in the medical environment.

Eliminating Blind Spots in Commercial Trucking with IoT

Technology is becoming a critical business tool for truck manufacturers, fleet operators, and service centers. On-board diagnostics and telematic systems are a first step, but only provide a singular view and limited scalability. A more comprehensive view of truck health delivers reliability, improved uptime, and faster repairs; but this requires examining a larger and richer set of engine data together with external sources.

The Reality of Application Security: Scare Tactics or Genuine Threat?

Guardians of application security have perhaps become slightly immune to the fearful messages of cybersecurity vendors. The combination of ‘Big Data’ with an exponentially growing Internet of Things (IoT) would seem to provide the perfect storm conditions for the exploitation of vulnerable code streams. Read this whitepaper about the reality of AppSec to discover what are the real risks and how to mitigate them.
