Essentially, we've reigned in the power requirements of our devices by up to three orders of magnitude, which lets us do everything we need to do off that small form-factor harvesting budget.
We all know the logic of purchasing: The unit costs for 1 piece are higher than for 10 pieces and these cost per piece more than 100 pieces, and so on. At the same time, the trend is clearly moving in the direction of smaller batch sizes down to a quantity of one.
Tagging essential equipment and tools guards against theft, loss, and misplacement while improving workflow, maintenance, and asset management.
With the arrival of 5G technology, the manufacturing industry faces its biggest transformation yet. Safer, flexible and more efficient manufacturing systems will be possible thanks to the ultra-low-latency and reliability of 5G connectivity.
Recently, the manufacturing sector has discovered the potential of AR and VR in cutting costs and increasing safety and productivity. But what exactly are the applications of this revolutionary technologies in the factory?
To keep up with an ever-changing manufacturing supply chain landscape, it is imperative that organizations find the right price management tool to centralize such massive amounts of pricing data and comprehensively and accurately recommend price changes.
The industry consistently says that, to support growth, it needs education and training. Part of that is for a manufacturer to understanding AM but part of that is for AM experts to understand manufacturing.
In part three of this article series, we highlight the overall valuation process, as well as an analysis of factors both internal and external to the business. Here are part one and part two of this series.
Using drones, automation, robotics, and artificial intelligence, companies are leveraging these important warehouse metrics to better serve their customers while improving their own bottom lines.
The powder must be perfectly shaped in order to hold an even surface. A super-thin layer of steel powder is spread out with a roller. Then, a printer head places tiny drops of glue on the areas of the layer that are part of the design.
3D printing has a bright future in the world of "Industry 4.0" and the advanced manufacturing sector of cyber-physical systems. Increasingly diverse raw materials, sophisticated modeling technologies, precise outputs, and more expands every year.
Many manufacturers have already implemented automation in factories, shifting to digitalized manufacturing processes to save time, money and increase efficiency. But what are the options for smaller businesses?
Metal AM gives engineers the opportunity to design higher performance parts with a much simpler manufacturing workflow than traditional manufacturing (think: rocket engines).But, in many cases, taller and larger parts will be no-bid or priced too high for the market.
The PCI-1203 is a 2-port EtherCAT PCI Universal card. It is a ready-to-use EtherCAT development platform for all PC-based industrial automation. The EtherCAT protocol stack is executed autonomously on the PCI card.
Companies with technically complex content face two key challenges: press spokespeople and marketing experts must make the products and services known and explain their function and benefits in an easily understandable way.

Awe-inspiring power and superior flexibility is sheathed within the contoured casing of the HAWK MV-4000. This smart camera builds upon the previous generation by quadrupling processing power and achieving real-time trigger response using an FPGA. Its state-of-the-art algorithms make it an excellent tool for any industry, whether the requirement be code reading, code verification, inspection, guidance, gauging or a combination of all four.
