Crown relies on FASTSUITE Edition 2 for offline programming of robotic welding cells.
Andrew Krok for CNet: When it comes to plastic, Porsche uses selective laser sintering, which is not the same as the fused deposition modeling that you see in most desktop-based 3D printers.
Perhaps more than any other industry, manufacturing logistics requires a fluid and flexible model. Manufacturers-and, consequently, their transportation and logistics partners-need to be flexible enough to respond to sudden fluctuations in the marketplace.
This approach is superior to standard molding procedures because of the high level of scientific control utilized through upfront Design of Experiments (DoE), flow analysis, process monitoring, and quality control that can quickly detect and correct any process variations.
Deborah Weinswig for Forbes: One overall theme of next week's Magic event is moving into the future in terms of manufacturing fashion, reimagining retail and, ultimately, creating and adopting solutions to achieve speed.
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.
It's clear that the manufacturing industry is transforming, and although automation may be reducing the need for some tasks, overall we do expect the manufacturing industry and employment to increase. 2018 is shaping up to be a good year for manufacturers.
GIM International: Spatiotemporal referencing can be used to enhance contextualisation of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) data and information flows within 'smart' factories, according to Studio iSPACE in Austria.
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.
Optimizing R&D labs usually involves vendor collaboration and planning to provide required versatility.
Kristin Houser for Futurism: Today's desktop 3D printers are fairly limited in terms of capabilities. However, we could be just a couple of decades away from a world in which every home has a 3D printer, capable of producing almost anything we can imagine.
John Revill, Oliver Hirt for Reuters: "The last couple of years ABB was in the repair shop and now we are coming out. With political stability and digitalisation we have positive conditions and a better platform to participate in the upturn,"
Pneumatics has had different diagnostic features for some time. For example, we can sense today whether the power is too low or too high, or whether there is a short circuit in an I/O system which caused some sort of failure.
He Huifeng for South China Morning Post: Dongguan looks to become a smart manufacturing base focused on the emerging mainland market, banking on the rise of domestic tech brands and booming domestic consumption.
Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences: Given the modular nature of their ink designs, many different filler and matrix combinations can be implemented to tailor electrical, optical, or thermal properties of the printed objects.
