The most sought-after skill sets and well-rounded, experienced employees can be hard to find, but the most successful manufacturers are approaching talent cultivation proactively, in lieu of reacting to an immediate growth- or project-driven need.
The smart factory is a direct way for manufacturers to excel in a competitive and dynamic marketplace.
There is no question that increased outdoor air ventilation can have a positive impact on the indoor air quality.
Border towns, such as El Paso, Texas, could service as "middle ground" if OEMs with operations in Mexico decide to relocate stateside.
Intel's Antony Neal-Graves has shared his initial thoughts on how the industrial landscape will evolve in 2017.
Selecting subassembly manufacturers with specific capabilities can speed turnaround, improve product performance and functionality, and increase an OEM's bottom line.
The manufacturing process is a lot less intimidating when it's broken down into a series of steps, so let's do that right now:
All these companies are logistics and material handling vendors and times are changing in logistics and fulfillment
An Enterprise Content Management (ECM) system has the ability to reduce "scrap and rework," improve quality, help ensure regulatory compliance, track employee or customer certifications, and increase worker safety.
We believe advanced manufacturing provides the opportunity for more productivity, cost savings and improved energy efficient production thus allowing companies to be more competitive right here in the USA.
Automation plays a crucial role in increasing the production and profit for the company.
A lot of really smart people in technology took Confucius' advice, "Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life."
We all know the Internet of Things is set to revolutionize the manufacturing industry but how will this happen? A new study of manufacturers across 12 different countries has provided quantified answers to the questions the industry is asking.
American manufacturing is surging with almost 900,000 new jobs created in the past six years. While that's incredible progress, how do we take manufacturing to the next level?
If your products have regular and stable characteristics, hard automation makes sense. If however each product is different, flexible automation or robotics should be favored.

With the introduction of its Cyton and Karbon CXP frame grabbers, BitFlow has established itself as the leader in CoaXPress (CXP), a simple, yet powerful, standard for moving high speed serial data from a camera to a frame grabber. With CXP, video is captured at speeds of up to 6.25 Gigabits/Second (Gb/S). Simultaneously, control commands and triggers can be sent to the camera 20 Mb/S (with a trigger accuracy of +/- 2 nanoseconds). Up to 13 W of power can also supplied to the camera. All this happens over a single piece of industry standard 75 Ohm coaxial cable. Multiple CXP links can be aggregated to support higher data rates (e.g. four links provide 25 Gb/S of data). BitFlow CXP frame grabbers open the door to applications where cable cost, routing requirements and long distances have prevented the move to high resolution, high speed digital cameras. In many cases, existing coaxial infrastructure can be repurposed for CXP with very low installation costs.
