Five reasons to leverage PLM for enterprise quality management

By implementing a product lifecycle management (PLM) system, companies both large and small, benefit by simplifying and shortening each phase of the product development process. Chuck Cimalore reports

Aerospace materials face testing times

Once an aircraft engine or body part has been designed, it needs to be casted, machined, extruded or 3D printed. Coatings also play a key role in parts design, reports Boris Sedacca

Special bearing designs provide benefits in harsh, demanding applications
