Designing Safe Pneumatic Circuits

Pneumatic circuits can be safe when carefully examined and implemented. The designers can use the appropriate level of reliability based on their assessment of the risk and frequency of the potential risk.

APIs for the Modern Factory Floor

The modern factory floor relies on APIs because the technology allows manufacturers to effectively track and oversee every step of the value chain from start to finish. It also helps ensure machinery is working efficiently.

The Future of 3D Printing

Many companies that know how to design for metal 3D printing have found suitable applications and have ordered parts. But these applications are still in their infancy.

Key Industrial Robotic Trends for 2018

The overall goal of these 2018 trends appears to lead the marketplace to reduce complexity and cost and justify the cost of automated systems and robotics. With lower cost, robotics will become more economical, even for smaller companies looking to become more competitive.

6 Ways Industry 4.0 Is Changing Machine Tools

One of the main tenets of Industry 4.0 is data collection. Machine tools will have sensors that will collect many different kinds of data, including data on how much the machine has operated, the conditions it has operated in and the condition of the components of the tool.

A Prescription for Trouble

In just the last 12-18 months, the culture and consequences of opioid drug use has supplanted internal theft, sexual harassment and other issues, emerging as the primary focus of most of the internal undercover investigations for manufacturing clients.

How Additive Manufacturing is Affecting the Industry

New powdered metal alloys and plastics are continuously in development. The safest bet for large manufacturers is to partner with material suppliers to ensure constant access to these new materials.

Specialized Sensors Perform in Extreme Environments

Sensors withstand extreme temperatures, pressures and aggressive chemicals.

Case Study: Volum-e Reduces Metal Support Removal by 50% Using Materialise e-Stage

The open diamond structure of the supports generated by Materialise e-Stage doesn't just make it possible to recover larger amounts of expensive metal powder, it also significantly reduces the risks related to HSE.

Industry 4.0 Is Heading to the Warehouse. Are You Ready?

Industry 4.0 will revolutionize and protect your warehouse and therefore your entire business. It will allow you to understand what is happening in real-time and know that any necessary changes will take place in real-time

Staying Ahead of the Curve: Mitigating Manufacturing Risks in 2018 and Beyond

Manufacturers have always operated with a certain level of risk. While that continues today and will always be the case in one form or another, what has changed are the specific types of risks that manufacturers face, as well as some of the strategies for managing those risks.

Case Study: TOSHULIN Chooses mySCADA

TOSHULIN gains a competitive advantage thanks to the displayed data of the visualization and the company knows how to use it cleverly and effectively. The attractive and user-friendly visualization displays the necessary output data for the end-users to further analyse.

How Integrated Thermal Protection Technology Can Prevent Solid State Relay Failure in Industrial Systems

New thermal protection technology for large industrial/commercial HVAC and refrigeration systems, heavy duty transportation, conveyor belts, assembly lines, medical, energy and other complex manufacturing systems.

Things You Didn't Know About 3D Printing

There are advances happening every day with 3D printing, such as medical solutions, shoes and other apparel, houses and even food. 3D Printing has quickly changed our way of living with its unexpected uses.

Top Smart Factory Capabilities Today for the Manufacturers of Tomorrow

Overall, the capabilities afforded by IIoT mean that these technologies are not just short-term investments or solutions to immediate problems; rather, they enable continuous improvement by providing companies with the ability to solve new problems as they arise-compounding the value of the investment over time.

MICROSCAN: READ AND VERIFY BARCODES INVISIBLE TO THE NAKED EYE

MICROSCAN: READ AND VERIFY BARCODES INVISIBLE TO THE NAKED EYE

Space, or the lack of it, can be a challenge when placing barcodes or Data Matrix symbols on components. However, readable barcodes are critical to component traceability, time/date stamping, work in progress (WIP) tracking, and recall management. MicroHAWK UHD smart cameras can decode very small and difficult-to-read barcodes, including Data Matrix two-dimensional (2D) symbols and direct part marks (DPM). Users can rely on the MicroHAWK UHD to read symbols with an x-dimension almost invisible to the naked eye!
