In the time of lean manufacturing where almost no company is fully vertically integrated, companies simply cannot have defective parts show up at their doorstep or build in lag time to allow for additional inspections that could have otherwise been avoided.
In light of that negative reputation, the plastic manufacturing industry needs to initiate changes to make the entire sector - as well as the product itself - more sustainable. What can we do to promote sustainability in plastic manufacturing?
What's next for the world of CNC operators? An increasing move to incorporate artificial intelligence, or AI, into operations. Over the next several years, CNC machining could see something of a revolution that includes machines that respond to Alexa-like voice commands.
With a clear shift towards more digitally enabled roles and a growing need for more automation and/or robotics across all industries, this requires more skilled people within these environments.
The fleet management industry is changing rapidly. New trends keep on coming in and businesses need to adapt accordingly to keep themselves updated.
IDS is convinced that the changeover to sustainable action is the only right way forward and tries to develop resource-saving solutions together with business partners. After all, relatively "small" changes can make a big difference - for the environment and for the company.
Amid rising demand, warehouses have had to increase productivity, but keeping too many workers in a facility can be a health risk. By implementing more robotics, warehouses could artificially expand their workforce.
AI in Manufacturing will help companies achieve higher productivity and cost effectiveness over a period. One of the major applications where AI is deployed in the manufacturing plants is Asset maintenance.
The Boston Dynamics crew got together to celebrate the start of what we all hope will be a happier year. Happy New Year from all of us.
Manufacturing and Processing: Smart Moisture Measurement Technology Continually Optimizes Product and Process Quality
Instant measurement and production line correction is enabled since calculations are performed in real-time inside the sensor and data is analyzed multiple times per second with integrated software
When dust accumulates and reaches hazardous levels, it can cause respiratory issues and damage machinery. If it builds too much, manufacturers risk the threat of a fire. Instead, it's critical to pinpoint the obstacles and create a plan to overcome them.
According to the latest report by PMMI Business Intelligence, there is a growing need for manufacturers to roll-out the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) across their enterprise. However, these companies should identify their existing "IIoT blind spots" before they do so.
With so many activities and over 2,600 scheduled demos taking place at PACK EXPO Connects, here is every preparation tool attendees need to ensure a successful event.
Global organisations are turning to multi-sourcing and regional supply chains; COVID-19 has accelerated a rethink of supply chains, prioritising flexibility and robustness; Domestic politics and geopolitics impact supply chains as Brexit, elections and rival superpowers clash.
Supply chain visibility and diversification have become top priorities for manufacturers, retailers and logistic providers. Today, they are faced with challenges they never expected, but - luckily - they are using new technologies to solve them.

Processing & Handling - Featured Product
Humans and robots can now share tasks - and this new partnership is on the verge of revolutionizing the production line. Today's drivers like data-driven services, decreasing product lifetimes and the need for product differentiation are putting flexibility paramount, and no technology is better suited to meet these needs than the Omron TM Series Collaborative Robot. With force feedback, collision detection technology and an intuitive, hand-guided teaching mechanism, the TM Series cobot is designed to work in immediate proximity to a human worker and is easier than ever to train on new tasks.
