Give us your thoughts on what the future holds for manufacturers and automation technology.

The future of manufacturing will be impacted by artificial intelligence, faster speed, and new technologies. Customers will need to speed up their innovation cycles and the availability of a variety of capabilities to improve the prototyping phase will be essential. Customers will also need parts in days instead of weeks or months to keep with the prototyping schedule. Additionally, manufacturers will need a way to streamline quoting to remain competitive in the fast manufacturing landscape. The manufacturers will also need to be able to get material and tooling quickly and efficiently to be able to manufacture parts rapidly.

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
