Creating 3D Animated Assembly Instructions
Creating 3D Animated Assembly Instructions

Without learning CAD software, it's now possible to create interactive 3D product documentation, including animated assembly instructions. The interactive 3D capability also extends to maintenance, operation, and repair guides. Implementing Inventor Publisher Technology Preview (download at no cost), users can access the identical 3D design prototypes created with Autodesk's Inventor software. After creation, the technical documents can be made available on the Web or e-mailed to customers in a wide variety of formats. Formats include: .AVI, .DWF, .PPT, .PDF, .SWF, and others. See a video overview, or to become familiar with specific functions, review these 'how to' videos.

Can Adhesives Improve Product Design?
Adhesives.org

Can Adhesives Improve Product Design? Absolutely.

Adhesives help make products lighter, stronger, and more durable, often saving time and money in the process. But it's imperative to know how and when to use them to maximize the many advantages they offer over traditional bonding methods.

Adhesives 101 will help design engineers — especially automotive and aerospace engineers — better understand the science behind different adhesive technologies and how versatile applications can improve design. Stay ahead of the competition...register for Adhesives 101 today.

Big Changes in ASME Standards

Big Changes in ASME Standards Due about midyear, major updates of the ASME fasteners standards will be released. The latest revisions of nut, screw, washer, and quality assurance standards make it easier to find requirements. New fasteners types are included. The International Fasteners Institute explains all in this Fastener Technology International article.

Riveting Via Orbital and Radial Forming

Riveting Via Orbital and Radial Forming Eliminating loose fasteners using component features like posts and ridges, which are cold formed to attach to the mating part, is a key advantage in the assembly process. But today non-impact orbital, radial, and roller forming processes are finding new materials applications. Assembly magazine reports significant progress in process monitoring.

The Case of the Flying Corvette Roof

The Case of the Flying Corvette Roof Chevrolet is recalling 22,000 Corvettes because the roof might fly off. The recall was prompted by the Japanese Ministry of Land Infrastructure and Transport's complaint. Apparently, neither the original adhesive nor the foam adhesive substitute is strong enough to hold the roof panel to the frame. A new design with a different material is in the works.

Self-assembling Switchable 3D Nano Devices

Self-assembling Switchable 3D Nano Devices Harnessing synthetic DNA is a new way to control nanoparticle assembly. Developed at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory, it uses strands of artificial DNA to direct how nanoparticles connect; forming switchable structures that respond to molecular stimuli. Reversible switching could make 3D small-cluster structures usable as biosensors, data-storage materials, and in solar cells.

Synthesizing Bio-glues from Spiders

Synthesizing Bio-glues from Spiders The mystery surrounding spider glue — one of the strongest natural adhesives — is no more. Scientists have discovered new glycoproteins that are produced from opposite DNA strands. Their ultimate goal is to scale up glycoprotein production to make multipurpose bio-adhesives from cloned genes. The resultant "green" glues are expected to replace petro-based counterparts.

Running (Adhesives) Around in Circles

Running (Adhesives) Around in Circles Dispensing adhesives in arc- or circular shapes is easier with a rotary dispensing system that only requires adjusting motor speed and digital timer (accurate to 0.01 sec). The plug-and-play machine controls a dispensing valve or syringe without a separate valve controller. Features include a reservoir level meter and adjustable dispense angle, height, and position settings.

Laser Duo Welds Electronics Lead-free

Laser Duo Welds Electronics Lead-free Lead-free welding of electronic components to PCBs has a two-laser process from Germany. A low-power green laser irradiates a component initially; a higher-output IR laser performs the actual welding. Welding instead of soldering precludes any joining material. And subject to ever-increasing temperatures, assemblies that can't be soldered can be welded.

World's Largest Weld Overlay

World's Largest Weld Overlay An 11,000 sq ft, 622 weld Inconel overlay repairing the waterwall of a coal-fired boiler at New Brunswick Power in Canada is claimed the largest ever. It repairs corrosion of the waterwall's carbon steel tubes, and overcomes up to 50% NOx wastage. A track-mounted, automated overlay machine completed the repair, bringing tube thicknesses up to code.

Big Investments in Hybrid Assembly Plants

Big Investments in Hybrid Assembly Plants Both Ford and GM are investing in electric and hybrid vehicle assembly plants — batteries included — to the tune of more than $300 million each. Hopefully that's a harbinger of what the future holds in terms of next-gen vehicles. At about $8000 per auto, Chevy Volt's 220-cell battery pack just started production at the GM Brownstown assembly plant. Lux Research recently predicted that batteries and energy storage will become a $60 billion market in three more years.

Nanowelding the World's Smallest Snowman

Nanowelding the World's Smallest Snowman Who'd have ever thought that the world's smallest snowman would be built using nanoengineering? And did you ever consider welding a snowman together? Well, a scientist at the National Physical Laboratory, UK fabricated the body and head from two miniscule beads, which are welded together with platinum. Both eyes and the smile are carved with an ion beam, while the nose consists of a little blob of platinum. See it done via video.
