September 2020 Guest Opinion: Keeping the Lights on for a "Lights Out" Future

Supply chain visibility and diversification have become top priorities for manufacturers, retailers and logistic providers. Today, they are faced with challenges they never expected, but - luckily - they are using new technologies to solve them.

Did COVID-19 help reveal the path forward for industry?

Many industrial leaders were encouraged to find the use of manufacturing executions systems (MESs) and plant data repositories (Historians) reduced the challenge of maintaining effective control of production from afar.

More Efficient Bending With Parallel Shaft Gear Motors

Compared to the classic hydraulic solution, these electric drives offer numerous advantages in terms of robustness, safety, and operating convenience. They are also easier to maintain and run more efficiently to save cost.

Scoring Big on Insight From Effective Data Cleansing and Contextualization

When it comes to time-series data, there is no shortage of options. Cloud-based, data-lake, open source, and historians are all readily available solutions for data storage, along with lower prices for sensors, and wired or wireless offerings for data aggregation.

The End of Repetitive Manufacturing in Favor of Engineer-to-Order

Due to the customer demand for customization one-of-a-kind manufacturing has never been stronger; there has been a 100% increase in ETO manufacturing over the past fifteen years.

High Precision Linear Motor Stages for Industrial Automation

Precision industrial motion systems are used in test, assembly or laser micro-machining of high precision and high value components and in electronics, optics, and photonics manufacturing, to name a few.

Forward, Toward a New Normal - A transitional playbook for resuming manufacturing operations in the [hopefully soon to be post] Covid-19 Era

As companies and their workforces emerge from their forced coronavirus hiatus, a clear picture of a "new normal" for the manufacturing business and its employees remains elusive, with only hazy possibilities and vague pathways forward.

IoT Aiding Supply Chain Improvements

Getting everything you can out of your technology and processes has never been more critical. In supply chain management and logistics, there is a new way to streamline your operations.

3D Optical Metrology - Versatile Tools for Today's Advanced Manufacturing

When looking at metrology, general discussion often revolves around the relative merits of contact or non-contact measurement solutions. There is now a drive across nearly all industries for smaller and more complex components.

Manual Work Meets Modern Automation to Empower Workers With Handicaps

In spite of advancing digitalization, the following still applies: Manual workstations are indispensable, because automation is not always profitable with small batch quantities or complex processes.

Accelerating Manufacturers' Digital Transformation through a Free Peer-to-Peer Learning & Networking Virtual Event

Internet of Manufacturing, the premier conference series for industry 4.0 leaders, announces that its 2020 event goes virtual from September 28 - 30.

Linux-based Software for Automation

Linux has a lot to offer the automation industry. It is a stable and scalable alternative to Windows operating systems that allows for arguably greater connectivity between devices and systems.

How to Accelerate Manufacturing Coming out of COVID-19

COVID-19 is still a problem, but with a little luck and a lot of hope, industries are close to reopening. While we see a break in the clouds, no one is quite sure what the road to recovery really means.
