While the global covid19 pandemic seems to be fading into the annals of history, the next crisis loomed large before the last one could begin to fade away into obscurity. What do these two most recent crises in the US demonstrate to the manufacturing world?
Smith College Team From Massachusetts Wins CoVent-19 Challenge to Design New Ventilator for Developing World
-"We came into this not knowing anything about ventilators," SmithVent team lead says -Top 3 teams from over 200 submissions win on-demand 3D printing services from Stratasys
Read to know how the many process manufacturing businesses around the world impacted by COVID-19 can bounce back.
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.
The factory in a box could be located in front of a hospital, next to a shopping center, or near a school. The integrated air-conditioning system with air purification filters makes production possible even in places with high risk of viral contamination.
Trouble often comes from the surfaces that warehouses, processing plants and other facilities use. Without the right surface material, bacteria can collect even with the right practices in place - raising the risk of food contamination.
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.
Multi Property Optimization for Injection Moulding to Maintain Safety and Reduce Manufacturing Costs
The company's collaboration with Additive Flow for a particularly challenging project involving a metal and polymer over moulded component, ensured yet another successful outcome for Comeragh that will open up further opportunities in the future.
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.
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.
According to an industry survey, the majority of food manufacturing companies are expecting to increase production. However, the same study suggested automation does not offer enough flexibility to fulfil an increase in production.
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.
