How 3D Printing is Impacting Manufacturing

The market share is increasing and more production industries are acquiring 3D printing units. Subtractive manufacturing has been rendered less effective, but there are many industries that are reluctant to give up their old ways.

Why Automation Gateways Matter

There is no clear-cut winner among the different standards and there is a lack of interoperability, even when Ethernet is used as the base network. For users and implementers of automation equipment, applying the best solution often requires supporting dissimilar network technologies.

PlastiComp Part of Team Working to Accelerate Development of Affordable Carbon Fiber Composites

Using the engineering software validated by the Pacific Northwest National Lab lead team, manufacturers will be able to "see" what the structural characteristics of proposed carbon fiber composites designs would be like before it's molded.

Top Practices for a Top-Performing Production Floor

There are three areas where best practices help top-performing manufacturers concentrate their efforts: Production planning and scheduling, Production management, Quality

Modified, 3D-printable Alloy Shows Promise for Flexible Electronics, Soft Robots

Researchers in Oregon State University's College of Engineering have taken a key step toward the rapid manufacture of flexible computer screens and other stretchable electronic devices, including soft robots.

How to Ensure Effective Network Segmentation

The main idea of Continuous Network Verification is to assure that the network is resilient and protected by ensuring your network's behavior matches your intentions.

3D Printing for Surgical Procedures

3D printing is becoming the standard in preparing for surgical procedures, using patient-specific models, and implanting devices and tissue during the operation with the help of surgical guides.

Big Opportunities in IoT Tech for Process Manufacturing

The report examines the technology by software, hardware and networking elements, all of which comprise the IoT system. Software is forecast as the fastest growing market (31.0% CAGR) over the next five years; although hardware currently has the largest installed base.

The Difference Between Digital Thrivers and Digital Survivors in Manufacturing

While manufacturers aspire to digitally transform their operations, many lack the data-centric foundation required to support this digital shift and face an uphill battle with legacy systems. Here's how to push past this constraint to realize digital dividends.

3d Modelling and Printing - Saving Theatre Time and Providing Excellent Patient Outcomes

In a recent project, Renishaw used its additive manufacturing (metal 3D printing) expertise to help the University Hospital of Wales (UHW) treat a patient who suffered cancer of the lower jaw and required removal of the affected region coupled with reconstructive work.

Why Manufacturers Are Focusing on Cognitive and Predictive Asset Management

With off shoring trend reversing in most countries, on shoring with smart plants are becoming increasingly popular choice. Comparesoft studied the key reasons why manufacturers are adopting cognitive and predictive maintenance strategies in their smart plants.

The Benefits of Lean Manufacturing

Some of the challenges that manufacturers face to accomplish lean manufacturing are introducing a manufacturing cost reduction model; the optimization of material and product flow; site planning and expansion; the design of a risk management system

Hand Loads: Cost Effective Solutions for Complex Plastic Parts

It's important to note that hand loads require extra labor for installation and removal. While this may skew the cost/benefit analysis, it may also be the only way to meet the customer's needs.

How Green Has Manufacturing Become Over the Years?

If manufacturers continue to make their processes more sustainable and consumers continue to support their environmental efforts, perhaps we'll one day live in a truly sustainable society.

CAD Essentials for Fabrication at the Tipping Point of Industry 4.0

While the entire fabrication industry is busy integrating IoT with their machines for data, machine to machine communication and intelligible foresight, let us not forget the place of origin for fabrication - concept designing and modeling in CAD
