Racing to Success with Additive Manufacturing

During the racing season, teams like Penske compete on and off the track by adding innovative features to their cars to push the limits of performance in search of a win. The same is true for all businesses, even if you're not flying around an oval at 150mph. 

But, what does that mean for companies outside of the racing game? 

It means that adopting the right technology to fuel rapid product development cycles is critical for business success. One technology that stands above others for its ability to handle fast-paced iterative design cycles is 3D printing. In this white paper, you'll learn how winning teams like Penske Automotive have leveraged 3D printing to see success on the track and in their consumer product divisions. 

In this white paper you will learn:  How Penske uses 3D printing across their design scheme. How 3D printing can make product assembly easier with rapidly produced jigs and fixtures. How 3D printing can help with composite tooling.

The Case for Automation at Companies of Any Size

As technology—specifically robotics—evolves to include robots designed to collaborate with humans, rather than replacing them, the business rationale for automating production is stronger than ever. 

Still, many decisionmakers wonder if the cost of automating is worth the investment, and what kind of automation they're willing to bring on site. What's more, many worry that automation will ultimately lead to the decimation of jobs, crippling the economy at large. In this white paper, the case for cobots— collaborative robots that work in close proximity to humans—is made, by explaining that some forms of automation are easy to integrate, and can even create more jobs, while boosting the bottom line.

eBook: Should You Use Additive Manufacturing to Produce Your Next Part?

Though it began in rapid prototyping, 3D printing has begun to proliferate throughout the manufacturing sector. Many engineers now find themselves faced with a simple question: 

Should I 3D print my next part? 

The answer to this question depends on the answers to many others. These include:
  What material properties do you need? Is high strength or light weight a priority? Which geometric features make sense for additive manufacturing (AM) and which do not? Do you have rigid cost or time constraints?

The Future of The Future of Customer Engagement

One would think that with so much customer data available, in so many places, companies would know exactly how and where to engage with their customers most effectively. But in fact, the distance between companies and their customers has never been wider. Why? Because traditional customer service systems and CRMs just aren’t up to the task of today’s decentralized, fragmented customer data. They can’t collect it, let alone curate it and harvest insights from it to help companies understand who their customers are and what they’re saying and doing. As a result, there’s a major disconnect between what customers want and what companies are delivering. To understand this, we need to look at three seismic forces rocking the customer engagement landscape: Shifting demographics and new channels Intelligent self service The changing nature of customer interactions

VM Argentina MESSI tröja säsongen

Yaya Toure tror att han kan spela på toppnivå i ytterligare två årstider och skulle inte utesluta ett drag till Manchester United och säger att han skulle vilja "lära" Paul Pogba. Toure, 35, släpptes av Manchester City efter åtta framgångsrika år på Etihad Stadium, men har sagt att han vill stanna i England. "Låt oss se, låt oss se," Toure berättade Manchester Evening News när han frågades om att vara en potentiell ersättare för den avgående Michael Carrick på United. "Jag reglerar inte stora lag, de stora lagen är väldigt viktiga för mig. Vad de vill uppnå, det sätt de vill gå är för mig mycket viktigt. Jag vill gå någonstans jag kan vinna och uppnå. "Det kommer bli svårt en dag att spela mot City, men jag måste göra det. Det är en del av mitt jobb. Jag har spelat fotboll under en så lång tid, jag är inte bra på kontoret eller något annat Jag är bra i fotboll. "Att se mig själv på en annan klubb kommer att bli svårt. Jag har varit så stor del av staden under en så lång tid nu. Jag vill bara säga att jag definitivt kommer att fortsätta spela på hög nivå - Champions League eller Europa League. "Jag vill spela ytterligare två år. De måste vara på högre nivå och då kan jag göra något annat." Toure sa att han skulle njuta av chansen att spela med United mittfältaren Pogba och kunde hjälpa Frankrikes internationella att förbättra efter två svåra år på Old Trafford. "Det är svårt på grund av hur medierna har behandlat honom", tillade han. "Vi har inte samma egenskaper eftersom jag var involverad i hela bollen, jag sprang överallt. Jag tyckte om det. Jag var beredd på det. Jag arbetade för det länge. "När jag var i akademin i Afrika var jag tvungen att springa överallt, få box-to-box på 50 sekunder. Det är något jag älskar att göra. "Pogba är lika stor, makt - men annorlunda på sättet han vill gå. Han är en spelare jag vill leka med, för att vara ärlig, bara för att lära honom några saker. "Han är en fantastisk spelare. Han är lite ung för Ryssland tröja tillfället. Kritik är en del av livet. Om de kritiserar dig är det för att de vill att du ska vara bra eller vara bättre. "Jag har kritiserats och jag älskar att bli kritiserad. Jag bryr mig inte om folk pratar om mig - det är bra. Det betyder att jag måste uppnå, jag måste bli bättre. "Även om du fortsätter att vara på toppen av ditt spel, ibland kommer de att hitta något att berätta för dig. Det är en del av livet. Vi måste ta itu med det." Stadens chef Pep Guardiola har undertecknat en ersättare för Toure en av sina högsta prioriteringar den här VM Argentina MESSI tröja säsongen, med Napoli Jorginho som mål. Toure sa att den spelare som ersätter honom måste matcha sin önskan och ambition att utmana för en plats i Argentina tröja Guardiolas trupp. "Kanske de nya spelarna, de nya barnen kommer igenom, de kan göra det," sa han. "Men den mentalitet jag alltid hade - det var alltid för högt. Sättet som jag krävde av mig själv och krävde att de som var nära mig att vara på toppen av sitt spel. "Ibland är det svårt att få det, men låt oss se om City kan få en bra [ersättning]. Jag önskar dem lycka till Portugal tröja i framtiden, kanske en dag hoppas jag att jag kommer tillbaka i en annan situation. "Jag känner att jag går i pension eftersom jag tänkte att jag skulle sluta fotboll efter City. Jag ville fortsätta med City i två år, men det är livet. Vi måste gå vidare, vi måste förstå beslut ibland."
