If you ever have to ride in an ambulance, you probably won’t be thinking about its design. But you would probably agree that having all the right equipment, in the right places, along with a safe, reliable vehicle is important. At Ambulansproduktion, located in Sandviken, Sweden, the team constantly thinks about ambulances and modern, functional emergency care. […]
Precision to the micron. It’s essential for honing machines. A micron is really small (.001 millimeter). To give you some perspective, a single human hair is about 80 microns in diameter. We are talking about very precise measurements indeed. During the honing process, an abrasive rotating tool removes metal from the interior surface of a […]
Think about this: Any time you ask Google a simple question, like who won the world cup in 1996, how far away is Jupiter, or just how can I make my cat love me, your query travels 1500 miles before it’s resolved. Catching up with friends? Facebook says 1 kbyte of a single http request […]
One of the strengths of PTC Creo is its flexibility. A deployment can be as simple as a free 2D sketching app or as sophisticated as an enterprise-wide installation of 3D design, simulation, and visualization tools. As an example, look closer at how Certum Engineering fashioned its own unique environment for product development.
Power plant generators. Agricultural and mining equipment. Refrigeration appliances. Ships sailing on every sea in the world. These are some of the many places you’ll find products made by American VULKAN Corporation (AVC). The company’s three divisions (VULKAN Couplings, VULKAN Drive Tech, and VULKAN LOKRING) create products like couplings and drive shafts for marine propulsion, power transmission equipment for industrial applications, and solder-free locking systems for refrigerant tubes.
A few years ago, Hatz Diesel realized that its product data management (PDM) system no longer met its needs. The company used PTC Pro/INTRALINK to support an engineering team in Ruhstorf, Bavaria, and had built up a database packed with 300 GB of design files. The problem was, a whole other Hatz team in Italy couldn’t use any of that data.
In some industries, you engineer products to be sturdy so that they’ll survive an accidental drop from the kitchen counter. In other industries, you’re up against far more hostile elements. In fact, you may be engineering for users who intentionally beat up your things—over and over. Rába Axle, whose tag line is “We Engineer, You Drive” produces […]

More than 20 years ago, Nico Marini, a newly graduated engineer in Hasselt, found himself working for a company that manufactured buses—luxury touring coaches, public transit vehicles, and such. He loved all things automotive, and within a few years the company named him head of engineering. But despite his passion, he didn’t aspire to climb […]
