Supply shortages, cybersecurity threats, and a lack of worker digital skills are the top three challenges faced by manufacturers, according to an IDC survey in November 2021.
Managing an industrial facility means dealing with several hazards. While some of these risks, like repetitive motion strains and machine collisions, may be obvious, some are less evident. Noise control, for example, often goes overlooked in industrial safety.
New orders hit a 16-month low in October 2021, according to the Institute for Supply Management (ISM). Similarly, 26 commodities were in short supply, some for more than a year. However, despite these setbacks, manufacturers still have a chance to grow.
Supply chains and the climate are more intricately linked than many may realize. Just eight global supply chains are responsible for more than 50% of greenhouse gas emissions.
Every day in 2020 has been somewhat of a surprise, but probably the biggest surprise of all has been how well manufacturers and quality teams have navigated all of the new rules, restrictions, PPE requirements and product mix changes that emerged.
Does keeping an organized workplace really create a competitive advantage? DSI believe it does and here are the reasons why.
Over the past few years, several significant obstacles have emerged for manufacturing supply chains. Here are three of the most pressing of these and what strategies could address them.
Throughout history, there have been industrial applications that require a load or force measurement within a system that involves either linear electric or hydraulic smart actuators.
Purpose-built solution AI and machine vision solution on Intel® edge processors are helping manufacturers successfully adapt the defect detection technology and expand it to address broader Industry 4.0 use-cases.
There are many specific actions you can take to conserve water during your manufacturing processes, and the first step is finding and fixing unwanted leaks in your equipment and machines.
From laboratories to meat processing plants, from hospitals to explosion-proof clean rooms: there are applications in which the highest operating safety meets maximum hygienic requirements.
Though most manufacturers have long believed that people are maxed out, and when it comes to productivity, manual assembly lines are as optimized as possible, new technology is challenging that belief structure.
Maximizing the capabilities of end-of-line packaging systems for handling medical devices depends upon how smoothly the disparate functions are integrated into a singular, optimized packaging line. Robotics and turnkey integration provide the solution.
Metal finishing is a crucial process in many modern manufacturing operations. While the practice itself is by no means new, the industry has likely only scratched the surface of its potential.
By adopting a cloud-based, unified file system, manufacturers can cut costs in half, while strengthening data protection, simplifying management and enabling global collaboration.
