Research Report - Mass Customization Placing Design in the Customers Hands

Designer Edge - Products come in all shapes and sizes, and customers demand solutions tailored to their needs. With mass customization software, these two facts can be reconciled in an automated, customer-facing experience called a product configurator. In this engineering.com research report, we examine the different levels of mass customization with the pyramid of product configurators. Taking a look at real-world case studies, we discover how the highest level of the pyramid can enable true engineering automation, saving time and increasing customer satisfaction.

White Paper - Effects of AIA Quick Guide to UL 489 or UL 1077

Electronics - The function of a circuit breaker is to provide overload (thermal) and short-circuit (magnetic) protection to a circuit and its downstream components. A circuit breaker functions like an airbag in a car, protecting circuit components and people by tripping the circuit to interrupt the current flow if it detects a fault condition in the control system.

White Paper - Guide to Integrate Large-Format Additive

3D Printing - As with any new technology, getting into large-format 3D printing begins with investigation. The first question may be a simple one: what does “large-format” mean? For 3D printers, “large” is a relative term. Many extrusion-based (FFF) 3D printers are referred to as desktop machines, because they fit on table space. Some of these have very respectable build volumes – but when it comes to “large-format,” the machines will need their own dedicated floor space. Large-format 3D printers have significant build volumes and are most often found in professional settings, like manufacturing facilities and R&D centers.
