The Cloud is driving business value by breaking down barriers, improving collaboration, and opening new business possibilities. I expect that the trend of cloud adoption will only increase in 2023, driving a revolution in smarter decision support by manufacturers.
When thinking about costs of a part, many engineers and purchasers tend to only have one thing in mind: production costs. Like this, new technologies such as 3D printing/AM are often seen as expensive. However, production costs are just the tip of the iceberg.
Regardless of where you are on the ISO journey - compliance, awareness only, registration, or simply trying to maintain your QMS after a successful audit - it is necessary to ensure that competence and awareness are kept at the forefront.

A traditional gantry system employs X-Y or X-Y-Z range of motion. Mounted on a base plate, usually granite, 2 parallel rails constitute the synchronized Y axis motion while the cross axis (bridge axis) provides the X motion. A vertical axis can be added on the bridge for the Z motion. A Split Bridge system can be less complex than a traditional gantry system because synchronization of the two parallel linear motors is not required. Both systems are used in industrial production, testing, and additive manufacturing.
