SME created the Additive Manufacturing Competition to attract and introduce the younger generation to emerging technologies that manufacturers have adopted over the past few years.
The growing number of industrialisation questions are indicative of a growing maturity in the marketplace. AM machines are moving out of prototyping applications and research laboratories and into mainstream production manufacturing.
When determining the rate of adoption of new technologies, the Gartner hype cycle is a good point of reference. The hype cycle for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), however, shouldnâ€™t be confused with general IoT, which applies to consumer IoT technology.
With all the buzz about these new design tools, there is still quite a bit of ground left to be covered in ensuring these next-generation designs are actually manufacturable. That is where we can really shine.
Too often, businesses start with an â€śintent to connectâ€ť instead of focusing on a business model. Companies that are just looking to create a connected version of a product fail to solve actual problems that are affecting the business.
While itâ€™s important for manufacturers to have sound cybersecurity measures and protocols in place, itâ€™s equally important to have IT resilience and orchestration solutions at the ready.
A mass flow meter (MFM) has five major components: flow body, flow conditioning section, flow sensor tube, bypass, and electronics. A mass flow controller (MFC) has the same components as an MFM, but also has an integral control valve mounted on the same flow body as the MFM
