    Are you in need of skilled welders, but your budget doesn’t allow you to pay more? Are you seeking out for unskilled welders who are willing to learn, diligent and responsible? Are you looking for welding workers with hard work, high work ethics? If so, they should be welding workers from VMST.

    Definitely make sure you do the upfront leg work to make sure no other similar patent exists. This is a giant pain and we generally always hire it out. The language and description of the item is very very critical. I always try and get one or two people who have no clue anything about the product/design to read the patent description and try and draw up and explain the design. It is very easy for one or two critical words to be taken in another context and if any litigation takes place can make you loose. I have been on both sides of this occurrence and it gets quite picky. If it is a product that will be worth significant money definitely get a patent lawyer involved they have a ton of experience with this.

    I've read a few articles online but research that goes into developing a patent needs to be so thorough that I figured I'd ask some people who have probably been through it. This isn't my first rodeo either but I haven't registered for a lot of patents and I'm afraid I'm forgetting to dot my i's so to speak. Can anyone share any words of wisdom or tips for a slightly green patent seeker?

    Hello I am working on a design that incorporates a motor attached to a worm gearbox with 2 out put shafts. Each shaft than runs to a right angle gear box(1:1) which than runs to a rack and pinion setup. My question is if I want to determine the required torque to run the rack and pinion using the formula m*a*r=T, what radius should I use? The pinion will only be an inch in diameter. The right angle gearbox has bevel gears in it. Thank you in advance

    Hi, I think this forum is better to discuss about cad software, but maybe somebody can help with cam software? I have new career opportunities from CNC operator/miller to CNC programer, so I need good learning resources to program milling machines. Maybe somebody knows good free books, video in torrents, youtube, or somewhere else? And what is good machining forum to discuss about this? Also I'm thinking about mechanical design position, I have bachelor degree in engineering too, so maybe somebody knows what is the best way and learning to become this? I know need a lot of knowledge, about materials, electronics, IT, pneumatics, hydraulics and etc., but also need practical experience and strong company for opportunities? Looking for help. Thanks :)

    Hello everyone I'm not sure if this is the right forum to post here but I'm looking for some information in regards to Mechanical Engineering or I should write more specifically Mechanical Engineering Technology. I'm currently looking at getting either the Computerized Architectural and Industrial Design – A.A.S. Degree or the Mechanical Engineering Technology A.A.S. Degree The programs I'm talking about are both listed on page 120 and page 124 on the link above. Now I'm trying to find out just what would my job prospects be for either of those A.A.S. Degrees that I listed above. I very much love to draw/sketch/illustrate and am a very creative/artistic detailed person. Yes I'm well aware that these fields are now mostly if not all done on computer and that it's also not the same as getting an art degree but I feel that I would really enjoy this area of work.

    Hi Nick, Just wondering if this job post is still available. I am currently in Ireland and looking to move to Barcelona so this would be an amazing opportunity at just the right moment. I am a mechanical engineer working in quality for a large multinational company but am looking to move back to my passion which is Parametric Modelling & Design. I have experience with Creo and Solidworks and have designed my own 3D printer (FDM). Would you consider me for this role? If so please give me a shout and I can send you on my resume or we can talk further about how I might fit into the role and into the company

    To me, Quality means: 1 - A product that looks like it's not going to break and does not break with common usage. 2 - A product that does what the box says it does or what it's supposed to do. 3 - A product that it's easy to do what it's supposed to do without complications. 4 - A product that lasts longer than the guaranty (at least 50% more). 5 - A product that looks aesthetically pleasant and that looks like someone invested in good design.

    Hi, I'm an Automation and Electronics Engineer that love Mechanical and Industrial Design, I've been working developing various products from the aesthetics to the actual mechanical design. Life has taken me through different fields of work, from Web Design, server administrator, php programmer, technical marketing director, product designer, product developer and now I'm working as a consultant developing LED lamps. I'm in charge of the entire aesthetic desing, thermal analysis and overall product completion. As you see I have acumulated a bit of knowledge in many fields but I'm always eager to learn something else. Right now I'm interested in making a master's degree in Mechanical Design at a mayor university in the USA and maybe a Doctorate, I'm also interested in space science and atrophysics. Oh and I also Own a Geek store in my home town. That's about it haha, I hope I can be of some use as some of the threads here have been for me.

    I came across an article I found interesting so I figured I'd share. It involves a problem I was hitting with yellowing when working with clear plastics. I tend to overshear a bit which causes the yellowing issue when working with optical-grade clear polycarbonate. It looks like a new plasticating system was developed that should help out with yellowing if anyone else is experiencing that issue. It's supposed to stop black spots too but I've never seen that particular issue.

    My old Dell Precision M4400 (core2duo) has finally given up the ghost, so I’ve been researching putting a budget desktop build together. The old computer has crashed & corrupted hard drives on me too many times, so my emphasis on this build has been to put together a rock solid stable system on a limited budget. With that in mind I have opted for a modestly clocked Xeon and quite an expensive motherboard (although it is still half the price of an equivalent asus workstation motherboard). I expect it to be used in assemblies of up to 500 parts, maybe larger occasionally. Expect to be doing some drawing, but little to no rendering. Any feedback on the general build would be appreciated. I have already picked up the power supply & monitors on special offer, I hope to add another monitor at a later date when the budget allows. The Firepro W4100 has popped up in several forums with people having issues with it, have these now been resolved, or would I be better off going with an...

    Geckos, it would seem, can just about stick to anything. Well, researchers at the University of Akron decided to see what kind of surfaces geckos can cling to, and Teflon, orPolytetrafluoroethylene PTFE as engineers prefer to call it, was one of their tests. Their answer was surprising: geckos cannot cling to dry PTFE (wet PTFE is another matter altogether). Some people say that PTFE is the only dry surface that a gecko cannot cling to … but why? Geckos are able to cling to so many slick surfaces through the action of van der Waals forces combined with thousands of tiny hair-like structures on the bottom of their feet. Van der Waals forces are actually molecular attractions that operate over extremely small distances. They occur because of fluctuations in charge distributions between neighboring molecules. The thousands of tiny foot hairs on a gecko end in even more microscopic hair-like structures. These structures are tiny enough and in abundance enough make normally...

    I was telling a new guy in the warehouse that we always purge the machines after use because its not good for the machine to leave any sitting material. But later, I got into a discussion with one of my co-workers about whether or not that's true. I'd always been taught to purge the machine and never really questioned it but my buddy was telling me it's a waste of material and that leaving the PP in the machine won't hurt it. I'm happy to admit when I'm wrong so long as I get the right answer in the process. What are your thoughts?
