My company fabricates lubricating oil conditioning equipment and every machine uses various sizes of custom fabricated stainless steel tubing. We currently cut the tubing to length on a band saw. This is going to become inpractical as we are moving to a new facility that will put the band saw in a welding area far from our tubing fab area. What other power-assisted options might there be out there for cutting stainless hydraulic tubing? I've got a price on a Swagelok machine but they're pretty proud of their equipment. Thanks for any guidance you can give me!

Partial Reconfiguration (PR) allows FPGAs to dynamically change modules without disrupting other parts of the design. This paper discusses the use cases of partial reconfiguration as well as considerations when designing partial reconfiguration firmware using the Xilinx Vivado design tool targeting the RFSoC.

With a growing number of parts manufactured directly by additive manufacturing techniques, it is important to lay down design principles suitable for such manufacturing processes and to ensure parts are designed for additive manufacturing. There are several factors that are to be considered at the design stage. Few such design issues in additive manufacturing are discussed in this paper. Download Now
Plastic parts not only need to meet the short-term color and appearance requirements, but also need to be resistant to long term color shift and fading. This paper discusses various points related to aesthetics of plastic parts and what design engineers need to know about science of color and appearance. Download Now
Material, design, tooling and processing are as important as the four wheels of a high performance of a car. Use of simulation tools play an important role as well. This paper also throws light on DFMPro â€“ a design assistant solution. DFMPro provides a rule-based approach to information on direct and indirect aspects of design performance and cost. Download Now
