Accessible 3D printing system for metal additive manufacturing to complement plastic 3D printing
Global shipments for motion control products increased by 13.6% to $858.4 million in 2016, according to new statistics released by the Motion Control & Motor Association (MCMA), the industry's trade group.
In response to consumer demand and competitive pressures, product variation is on the rise. That variation changes the manufacturing calculus somewhat, as the required variation and corresponding complexity means that the ability to think critically and independently and adjust to changing circumstances is a priority.
"These three companies have demonstrated their experience in vision system integration and can now use their certification as a third-party verification of critical qualifications to their end user customers,"
XIMEA, the camera innovator of small size and high speed cameras, announced today that its xiB-64 camera line was recognized by the judges of the annual Vision Systems Design Innovators Awards program.
Advanced technologies and increased capacity drive new levels of productivity for job-shop production environments
Designing the optimal material handling systems requires a deep understanding of the product, process, and challenges inherent in the manufacturing process.
While OCT is widely utilized in other industries, its use in 3D printing is a new concept. Axsun has added OCT imaging capabilities to the printhead of industrial 3D printers to enable real-time, high-resolution scanning of each layer as it is being deposited.
Attendees will have the opportunity to discuss their specific automation challenges and possible solutions with ATI account managers, engineers and personnel from automation partner companies who will also be on hand.

EXAIR's new Small 316 Stainless Steel Cabinet Cooler® Systems with ETC (Electronic Temperature Control) keep electrical enclosures cool with 20°F (-7°C) air while maintaining the NEMA 4X rating of the enclosure and resisting the heat that could adversely affect the internal components. The wear, corrosion and oxidation resistance of Type 316 stainless steel assures long life and maintenance free operation. Cooling capacities up to 550 Btu/hr. are ideal for small enclosures and heat loads. Models with higher cooling capacities up to 5600 Btu/hr. for NEMA 12, 4 and 4X enclosures are also available.
Unsupervised Machine Learning is much more cost effective than Supervised Machine Learning because the algorithm does not need blueprints or understanding of the physical process to "learn" the behavior of the asset.
"SME and AMT created the Smart Manufacturing Experience to support manufacturers as they make the transition into the fourth industrial revolution," said AMT President Douglas K. Woods.
