Joe K III eyes manufacturing institute for Mass. | Boston Herald | Manufacturing In the USA Today | Scoop.it

U.S. Rep. Joseph Kennedy III will join other lawmakers and Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker tomorrow to call on the Senate to pass pending bipartisan legislation that would create a national network for manufacturing innovation.
The Revitalize American Manufacturing Innovation Act — introduced last year by Kennedy, Rep. Tom Reed (R-N.Y.), Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OHIO) and Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) and passed Monday by the House of Representatives — would create a network of up to 15 regional institutes across the country, each focused on a unique technology, material or process relevant to advanced manufacturing.
“Massachusetts would be a great candidate,” Kennedy said yesterday. “We’ve got a vibrant advanced-manufacturing industry. You couple that with the 100,000 new manufacturing jobs that are going to be opening in the state over the next decade, and you have a huge opportunity for Massachusetts.”.  ..Read More....

Protomold: Self-Mating Parts: Searching for Symmetry | Manufacturing In the USA Today | Scoop.it

When designing a pair of injection-molded thermoplastic parts that need to be mated together, product designers and engineers will often create two distinct halves that can connect to one another. Many times the geometry and complexity of the part guides that decision. But sometimes, if the two halves are similar or identical, it’s worth exploring the cost-effective—though sometimes challenging—design technique of creating a single part that when rotated 180 degrees, can mate to its symmetrical self...Read More....

What Procurement Managers Must Understand About Industrial Suppliers

What Procurement Managers Must Understand About Industrial Suppliers | Manufacturing In the USA Today | Scoop.it
Industrial suppliers are not mind readers. Shocking, I know! Yet each day they are pressed into service to determine exactly what a buyer needs with sparingly little information. They do their best to provide specs of their parts, CAD files, dimensional data, performance curves, videos, comparison tables, machine lists, and capability descriptions but the procurement teams always have unanswered questions. As an industrial buyer, it is your job to bring the clearest questions possible.
