Inside the Cockpit: How TE brings Fighter Jet Technology to Race Cars

Racing cars are a really tough environment. A racing car that’s comfortable for the driver is a slow car, so niceties like suspension travel get sacrificed for speed. However, that means all the other parts on the car have to withstand this environment. As weight is a critical element, the challenge is to make products smaller and lighter, but able to withstand vibration and heat.

Top 3 Myths of Injection Molding

Rapid injection molding has changed the way product developers and design engineers use manufacturing. No longer is injection molding limited to traditional methods that are time consuming, expensive, and only ideal for larger part quantities. Over the last decade, manufacturing has evolved to allow low volumes of molded parts within days, and do so at a fraction of the traditional tooling cost.

Technical Webinar Series from the Editors of TBMG: Integrating Motion Control for Safe Robot Operation

Manufacturing is changing. Robots and autonomous systems are used in more and more applications every day – many in safety-critical settings. No longer are robots kept in cages; they are working side-by-side with their human co-workers. Ensuring the safety of both robots and humans is vital and must be addressed early in the design stage. Designing robots for these safety-critical applications requires careful consideration of all aspects of the system, including proper motion control technologies that enable robots to maneuver in tight spaces originally designed for humans. Modifying standards for robot safety and human/robot interaction also must be a continuous process as these systems "learn."
