The auto industry is undergoing a major transformation. A wave of new technologies from outside the industry - especially Industry 4.0 technology - is starting to influence industry workflows significantly.
Modern solar heat systems incorporate new technology, like smart sensors and other items to improve efficiency. They have found a home in a wide range of industrial facilities - and could help the manufacturing industry reduce emissions created by heating.
As many strategize how to move forward in 2021, remote operations capacity is one area that is emerging as critical for manufacturers to achieve operational continuity during what could continue to be a uniquely disruptive time.
Manufacturing is beset by major challenges that are made worse by hyper shifts in supply and demand. Three main areas that are persistently an issue for Manufacturers are quality and safety issues, waste and underperforming assets, and high environmental impact.
Agile manufacturing is about creating flexibility to meet the market's expectations. By testing products in the market and making changes quickly, the product and its varying features, packages and options become more reflective of the voice of the customer, sooner.
Most conversations around the industrial IoT focus on its applications in assembly lines or inventory management. By comparison, processes like water management fly under the radar, but they contain the same potential.
Every operation has different goals and resources, so what lean looks like will vary. Still, there are some general concepts you can follow to create a lean assembly line.
The freeform aspect of 3D printing allows going beyond the rectangular builds that are so common in both modern and historical structures. That means people could eventually see building designs that fascinate and inspire them with their unusual shapes.
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.
Injection timing is a critical variable in combustion engines. From tinkerers squeezing every bit of horsepower out of their ride to engineers seeking fuel efficiency breakthroughs, making adjustments here affects the entire engine system.
Reshoring holds great potential for companies to gain increased flexibility and responsiveness when facing supply chain disruption. During COVID-19, we saw companies forced to fly to China to pick up specific parts.
"Many manufacturing processes have interchangeable tooling in their machines. These tools require pneumatic, hydraulic, chemical, or electrical connections to operate. Instead of connecting individual connections one at a time, they can be connected at the same time."
As the coronavirus pandemic rages on, the government is taking steps toward protecting public health. On May 27, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced a $281 million investment in improving water and wastewater infrastructure.
