Massachusetts Metalcaster Established Over a Century Ago Leaps Forward with 3D Mold Printing

A growing number of companies within the sand casting industry are adopting 3D sand printing to produce high quality parts without tooling. The technology to 3D print molds without changing the actual sand casting process itself is a major advancement for the industry.

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.

Take Advantage of Current CNC Machining Trends

Understanding current trends in CNC machining is the first step to taking advantage of them. Here's what's changing and what it means for machine shops.

Tips to Save Money on Your Next CNC Milling Project

If you are concerned about costs spiraling out of control when you kick start a new CNC milling project, then it is definitely a good idea to take stock beforehand and plan ahead to achieve significant savings.

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.

When and How Should I Select a Braking Resistor?

When designing a motor control system, it is not always clear if a braking resistor is required and, if it is, how to proceed in selecting a braking resistor. This post is intended to simplify that process so it is clear when and how to select a braking resistor.

Calculating Injection Molded Plastic Part Shrinkage

When designing any part for injection molding, it is important to consider the shrinkage and contraction rate of the material and the associated geometry of the component. Plastic shrinkage is the dimensional change that occurs in a molded part as it cools after injection.

Packaging the future

Automating packaging processes can improve productivity, quality and safety on site. Unsurprisingly then, it has become a crucial investment for packaging facilities. But, where do you start?

The Potential of Polymer 3D Printing - Exploring Advanced Manufacturing Processes and Bearing Design

3D printing has evolved significantly over recent years, with much of the research effort placed in the materials science field. This has enabled the development of a whole range of high-performance polymers with mechanical characteristics similar to those of metal.
