New SAE International Advanced Manufacturing Information Products Help Manufacturers Leverage the Latest Technologies to Increase Productivity & Innovation

WARRENDALE, Pa., July 27, 2017 - Advanced manufacturing methods are essential to manufacturers in the aerospace and automotive mobility industries looking to improve the assembly of vehicles and their associated systems, components, and subsystems throughout the entire product life-cycle. However, technical knowledge about emerging methods is not well-disseminated as corporations are protecting their intellectual property to maintain a competitive advantage. SAE International’s new Advanced Manufacturing Information Products comprise the mobility industry’s only authoritative multimedia collection of timely information that translates new technologies and non-traditional processes into practice.

As a neutral professional association dedicated to being the ultimate knowledge source for the aerospace mobility industry, SAE developed new content in short, readable formats to specifically address the practical needs of the aerospace and automotive communities when leveraging these emerging technologies.

These cutting-edge Information Products are available for instant access on SAE MOBILUSä, the technical resource platform created by the international automotive and aerospace mobility community to provide a critical advantage to develop the future of automotive engineering.

Engineers and other technical professionals at all levels of experience and all roles in the design and manufacturing processes can access the Information Products for the latest standards and insights pertaining to:

Advanced Methods & Materials

  • Additive manufacturing
  • Advanced alloys
  • Composite repair

Smart Manufacturing

  • Augmented reality/wearables
  • Robotics/artificial intelligence
