Read to know how the many process manufacturing businesses around the world impacted by COVID-19 can bounce back.
In the vision market, we're really at that initial AI and machine learning phase. AI for inspection excels at locating, identifying, and classifying objects and segmenting scenes and defects, with less sensitivity to image variability or distortion.
The recalls made in late-2019 was due to defective NADI (Non-Azide Driver Inflators). These defective airbags have inflators that could explode, which the manufacturers have narrowed it down to a faulty seal.
A lot has been said about "digital transformations," and with good reason. Companies that want to survive realistically in a world with global competition and pressures require a paradigm shift to move forward.
This article presents a research study that determined the optimal error recovery method from a cost standpoint. And, while this research study only considered cost in error recovery, it shows the potential value of error recovery planning in automation plants.
A load bank can be an important asset in a variety of industries. Load banks are stationary or portable tools that mimic the expected electrical load on a power source in a commercial or industrial setting.
A look at manufacturing and the COVID-19 pandemic shows the comparison to WWII is an apt one. From victory gardens to discussions of shared sacrifice to ramping up production of critical supplies, the parallels between the health crisis and WWII are hard to ignore.
For example, in many organizations, different business units buy similar products from multiple suppliers instead of buying everything from one supplier and benefiting from economies of scale. Procurement can see that, but the rest of the organization can't.
In the semiconductor industry, cleanliness and precision are absolutely critical. Swiss vacuum specialist VAT therefore partnered up with maxon to develop a drive system for wafer processing.
Sometimes the most difficult thing about AI is simply knowing where to start. Identifying potentially impactful use cases is one of the most cited roadblocks for organizations seeking to leverage AI in their business.
Ensuring seamless laser weld quality control and manufacturing traceability, the monitors catch weld errors as they occur in real time, instead of reacting to defects downstream. This ultimately increases yield, improves quality, saves labor, and increases savings.
Companies will need to quickly find ways to sustain their business, mitigate all supply chain risks, and be more flexible to the new environment. These requirements will drive a need for greater visibility and control over operations.
When the manufacturing industry emerges out of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will see the rapid trend of digitalization. However, to achieve maximum success - this will only happen if manufacturers finally deal with the challenge of data silos!
Increasing global competition and an awareness of the need to pivot away from on-site commissioning to safer and more cost-effective virtual methods are the main drivers behind a growing interest in industrial analytical simulation.
IMTS to continue to offer digital experiences to foster connections, networking and technical learning opportunities.
