  • Open-Source Could Be A New Avenue For Manufacturers

    Have you heard about the open-source revolution? Like 3D printing, it only recently made its way into the mainstream, but like the additive manufacturing machines, it has been around for a while.

    Open-source technology (hardware, firmware, software) has been the spur of the maker movement and continues to drive the cogs of at-home manufacturing. Many industry experts might relegate information like this to the ?con? column of industry analysis, but something larger is happening with this technology.

  • GM Issues 6 More Recalls

    DETROIT (AP) -- General Motors issued six more recalls on Wednesday, bringing its annual total to 60 recalls covering almost 30 million vehicles.

    The latest recalls cover almost 718,000 cars and trucks. The largest is for faulty seats in just over 414,000 cars and small SUVs. Other problems include incomplete welds on seat brackets, turn signal failures, power steering failures, loose suspension bolts and faulty roof rack bolts.

    GM is conducting a companywide safety review as it tries to correct a dysfunctional corporate culture in which safety was a low priority.
