We are on the cusp of another Industrial Revolution and most of us are ill-equipped to handle the forthcoming realities that will change the world, as we know it.
This webinar is intended to provide you with a thorough understanding of the information contained within a typical gear inspection report. Specifically, we will look at the contents and meaning of the information contained within the gear charts, as well as the techniques used by the gear measurement system to assess gear quality. An explanation of basic gear measurement techniques, how measurement equipment and test machines implement these techniques, and how to interpret the results from these basic measurements will be covered. We will also discuss how to interpret the results and what corrective actions may be considered if the quality of a particular gear is unsatisfactory.

The latest economic data is in, and things continue to improve in terms of business confidence and activity. Further, manufacturing and mining have begun to expand again, while housing sentiment and activity are still growing. Overall, last week’s numbers demonstrate that private business (so far the weakest link in terms of economic recovery) continues to gain strength.

Researchers have demonstrated the 3-D printing of shape-shifting structures that can fold or unfold to reshape themselves when exposed to heat or electricity, an approach also known as "4-D printing." The micro-architected structures, including boxes, conductive devices and a stent, were fabricated from a conductive, environmentally responsive "smart" ink.

A new proposal Friday would impose a nationwide limit by electronically capping speeds with a device on newly made U.S. vehicles that weigh more than 26,000 pounds. Regulators are considering a cap of 60, 65 or 68 mph, though that could change. Whatever the speed limit, drivers would be physically prevented from exceeding it. The proposal, which comes from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, does not force older heavy vehicles to add the speed-limiting technology, but the regulators are still considering it.

Today, I’m going to focus specifically on AR applications in industry. In a manufacturing context, AR can be used to convey the orientation, placement and scale of parts (instead of, say, a Charmander) to guide a worker through step-by-step instructions visually in a real-world environment. These augmented guidelines help new workers get up to speed more quickly and reduce unnecessary errors.
