Converting metal components to plastic could provide more advantages for your production process and final product. In fact, OEMs that choose to make the switch capitalize on the added versatility of plastic, and realize a number of valuable benefits
Think of AR in an IIoT manufacturing context: now technicians with AR can remotely monitor, change and maintain systems without putting the operator in danger; however, AR requires a massive amount of network resources.
In the past manufacturability was often foremost in the designer’s mind. A lot of geometries which might have been almost impossible or very expensive via conventional manufacturing techniques are now possible and sometimes even cheaper via 3D printing.
Regardless of the additive manufacturing technology used, as the industry advances, consideration of up- and down-stream processes for powder management are becoming more of a focus.
The deployment of hyperscale data centres has typically been in a relatively small number of central locations. However, this has to change.
Maybe, it is not all about innovation; it is about the integration of designs in the right sequential manner that does not hinder the efficiency of new designs.
