Bicycle Components Maker Streamlines Product Teams with PTC Windchill

In 1990, a Japanese giant that dominated 85% of the market effectively locked up the bicycle component business. From the drivetrain to the wheels, Bike Magazine writes, “Most bikes were little more than a steel or aluminum pony used to showcase Shimano’s parts.” That didn’t worry a startup called SRAM.

A Blind Rivet for Every Situation with VVG Fasteners and PTC

Alfred Honsel was the kind of a guy who finds a niche and runs with it.

At one time, breaking rocks in the hot sun was the stuff of chain gangs. Now, it’s the stuff of hydraulic hammers.

You’ve probably noticed that flat panel TVs are expanding. Only a few years ago, it seemed like we’d never want for anything more than our 32-inch LCD TVs. Today, they seem a bit puny. Many of us have already put that TV in the guest room, and upscaled to a 50+ incher. And just when […]
