Manufacturing and design engineers have more ways than ever to get the latest news about assembly technologies, trends and strategies.

In addition to the printed magazine, which we’ve been publishing now for more than 50 years, each month’s edition of ASSEMBLY is available in a digital version. E-mailed to more than 6,400 manufacturing professionals, the digital edition is also posted on our web site. Check out our digital editions here.

The digital edition isn’t the only thing you’ll find on our web site. You can also find breaking news, web-exclusive content, blogs, podcasts, videos, product reviews, showrooms, how-to guides, white papers, employment ads, a bulletin board, and a calendar of conferences, seminars and trade shows. Every feature article and case history that’s run in ASSEMBLY since January 2001 is available in our searchable archives.

ASSEMBLY magazine’s free e-newsletter is published twice a month and includes up-to-the-minute information on market conditions, technology developments, assembly practices and career opportunities. Published since 2005, the e-newsletter goes out to 21,000 ASSEMBLY readers.

In April, ASSEMBLY launched a new e-newsletter, Wire Processing, exclusively for engineers who integrate wire into their assemblies. Each month, this free e-newsletter will feature the latest technologies for marking, cutting, stripping, crimping, joining, bundling and testing wire and cable of all designs and sizes. We’ll talk about terminals, connectors, seals and other hardware. And, we’ll report on trends-such as the growing demand for electric vehicles-that are affecting harness assemblers and their suppliers.
