With the current state of the economy, IT executives are being asked to stretch their budgets in order to keep their businesses profitable. In 2008, Median IT spending per user fell to $6,667 from the previous year's $7,397, according to Computer Economics. This represents a 6.2% reduction, consistent with the fact that IT managers were supporting an increasing number of users without corresponding increases in IT spending. IT spend continued to decline in 2009 and uncertainty and caution is still prevalent in 2010.

Rewrite the rules of injection molding with 3D Systems thermoplastic additive manufacturing printers and materials. Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) technology is at the heart of a growing trend in mass custom manufacturing as well as functional prototyping. The right additive technologies, materials and finishes are transforming manufacturing. Digital-direct thermoplastic manufacturing offers exceptional quality while opening the door to novel design parameters not possible with injection molding. Thermoplastic additive manufacturing also bypasses the long lead time and up-front investment in injection molding tooling. If you measure your finished parts on the three dimensions: quality, time to market, and cost per cubic inch, in many situations industrial SLS offers a better total value proposition. 3D Systems offers a wide variety of 3D printable thermoplastics, engineered for a range of applications.

Metal 3D printing is revolutionizing the manufacturing process. Complex shapes, enhanced functional properties and lightweighting are some of the unique benefits delivered by additive manufacturing (AM). While there is plenty of information about printing techniques, materials and hardware, a critical element is rarely mentioned: the need for an integrated software solution for metal additive manufacturing. It takes more than a 3D CAD model and a good printer to get a successful print. Metal AM software handles all preparation and optimization actions that are required for a printed part to meet the desired CAD model specifications. This ebook provides an overview of the preparation and optimization process for AM, explains the importance of software to the profitability of any additive manufacturing business and suggests what to look for when researching AM software solutions.

Do attitudes to IT adoption vary depending on your seniority within a business? And could this be holding back adoption of technology? These are key questions explored in this paper, which compares the views of mid-level ‘hands on’ IT managers with those of senior directors within British companies. Across both groups, there is a sense that UK business in general is too wary of implementing new technology. But there is a significant divergence of opinion when it comes to a range of factors, such as the extent to which companies invest in new technology, stay on top of the latest tech, and understand its importance to the success of the business. A pattern emerges, whereby the senior leaders within companies are far happier than middle managers with the status quo around technology adoption. And IT managers even suggest that this might be driven by self preservation on the part of senior leaders.

In 2017, Europe produced more Of its electricity from solar, wind and biomass resources than from coal. Today's market is more volatile, with greater variability in energy sources due in large part to the desire to reduce environmental damage. The European Union (EU) is on track to achieve its 2020 goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 20% compared to 1990 levels l by reducing its reliance on carbon-based power. This paper examines the five most critical variables that investors, developers, and others must recognise in the due diligence process before investing in a new power generation project in Europe.

Profitability in the marine and power generation sectors is affected by numerous factors, some of which have a dramatic influence on operational costs. Because many of these influences are external, operators must closely manage those that are within their control to strengthen profit margins. At the top of the priorities list is efficiency, both in terms of processes and physical machinery. Even the smallest details can have an effect on profit, so controlling waste and maximizing uptime at every opportunity is crucial. To understand the benefits of how ABB coated nozzle rings apply to your operations, and how your business could realize significant new efficiencies download this whitepaper today.

Many in the United States’ power generation industry no doubt long for the relative market tranquility of the late 20th century. The generation plants built and operated then were carbon-fueled or nuclear-powered, with a few hydro-electric plants sprinkled in. The economics were largely stable and predictable, often thanks to regulation that shielded utilities from market fluctuations. But even in those simpler times, when the market was far less volatile, there was still much due diligence required when investors and developers were considering multi-milliondollar commitments in new generation projects. Today’s market is more volatile, due in large part to the disruptive effect of low-cost natural gas and the subsequent, rapid growth of affordable renewable energy. As more uneconomical and inefficient generation plants go offline, there is, for the most part, sufficient carbon-free or carbon-reduced generation to meet the growing demand for electric energy. There are pockets of growth
