Data-Driven Design for Remanufacturing of High-Value Components in Industrial and Agricultural Equipment

Join us for the first REMADE project webinar of the new year on January 7, 2021 at 12:30PM ET, Data-Driven Design for Remanufacturing of High-Value Components in Industrial and Agricultural Equipment. Discover how important the design process can be for reman of industrial and agricultural equipment. By designing components with optimum material utilization and end-of-life in mind, there is a significant reduction in carbon emissions.
