Hyper customization, smaller batch runs, a shrinking labor pool, energy availability, and global competition are factors that are increasing in importance and are also pointing to a much-needed new direction that companies will need to take in order to remain relevant ...
Supply Chain Software is the software tools employed in executing supply chain business, handling supplier relationships and monitoring connected business processes.
As the manufacturing industry continues to grow and evolve, we're seeing more focus being put on smart machines, IIoT and Industry 4.0. This is not a trend that is going away any time soon.
NASA has successfully tested its first rocket engine component made through 3D printing. The 3D printed component produced a breathtaking 20,000 pounds of thrust.
The exact impact of IoT, AR/VR, mobile, and generative design will vary from company to company, but make no mistake: These trends are already starting to shape the landscape around them.
For 2019, we expect new users will continue to find their way towards additive manufacturing, and we'll see an increasing number of companies shifting their production to AM or adding AM into the mix. New product introductions will bring success and failure...
Key themes woven into our worldwide manufacturing top 10 predictions for 2019 include the focus on digital transformation (DX), manufacturing business ecosystems, supply chain management, product and service innovation, and smart manufacturing.
One of the first trends driving change is 3D printings transition from prototyping to commercial-grade production, combined with the increasing popularity of metal as a printing material.
The manufacturing sector currently contributes Â£6.7 trillion to the global economy. Despite being subject to regular negative reports, the UK continues to play a significant role in the evolution and growth of global manufacturing.
In the past manufacturability was often foremost in the designers mind. A lot of geometries which might have been almost impossible or very expensive via conventional manufacturing techniques are now possible and sometimes even cheaper via 3D printing.
Regardless of the additive manufacturing technology used, as the industry advances, consideration of up- and down-stream processes for powder management are becoming more of a focus.
Partnering with tech companies whose investments in the Fourth Industrial Revolution are aimed at streamlining manufacturing processes is the shortest, most reliable route to your company winning the future.
Manufacturers, who invest in the latest manufacturing technologies and innovation ecosystems, will become more competitive than those who compete on price alone. Advanced technologies are producing better quality products, that, in turn, deliver higher margins ...
Robotics, AI, and basic IoT digitization is the technology that will be needed to design smart factories. Abundant data and smart robotics will magnify a factorys output, while minimizing costs and defects.
Additive manufacturing or 3D printing is generally considered to be for prototyping but there is an increasing trend towards using it for production. So when does it make sense to switch to or consider using 3D printing for production of your products or parts within them?
