The answer to the question posed in the title of this editorial is really not that important. What is important, is the result – progress, moving forward. If we all do everything in our power to this end, we do not have to fear for the future.

Development of bionic man in full bloom
How to effectively solve the problem of charging various dynamic implants wirelessly? Last year, the Bionic man project for the education of future bionic engineers was presented to the public for the first time. It was presented under the framework of a Ministry of Education, Science and Sport project titled “Junctions of science and economy”.
Novelties at FAKUMA 2017
Arburg is going to present smart machines, processes and turnkey solutions for efficient plastics processing. At the Fakuma 2017, a hybrid Allrounder 920 H will be presented for the first time with a new design and new Gestica control system. Further highlights are a practical Industry 4.0 application for flexible injection moulding in single-unit batches, the production of ready-to-use LSR/LSR watches within the injection moulding cycle, newly qualified materials for industrial additive manufacturing as well as high-speed packaging applications.
Automated 3D-optical measurements in modern industrial production of sheet-metal products: a case study
One of the major challenges for manufacturers and suppliers in the automotive industry is to shorten the time from development till product readiness for market launch. One of the ways to reduce the production cycles is through improved quality control in manufacturing. This is why an increasing number of companies is using automated measurement cycles for quick measurements of tools and components in all phases of the manufacturing process, as these cells shorten the measurement time and effectively suppress human error.
Standing workplaces can be ergonomic, too
Ergonomics is the science of adapting work and instruments to workers. In the period from 1949, when ergonomics was introduced for the first time, it turned out that ergonomics is one of the main factors for workers’ productivity and satisfaction.
From space flights to machine building
Compared to other spindle designs, the power in Serac electric cylinders is highly concentrated. Transformation of rotary to linear motion is delivered by planetary rolling threaded spindles (PWG), developed at the German Aerospace Center DLR for the first remote-controlled robot in the D2 mission.
How important are MEMS and BioMEMS technologies?
A presentation of new technologies in scope of the “Junctions of science and economy” project, run by the Ministry of education, science and sports, is approaching, so I am going to write a few words about some interesting technologies used in the development of bionic man for the education of future bionic engineers.
New educational model for welding
The skills provided by welders have to adapt to changes in the industry. Establishing and executing a program for education in welding technology and weldability seems straightforward enough.
