New technology is poised to transform the way machines operate in the industrial environment. Costly consultants and confusing spreadsheets are out, and easy to understand dashboards are in.
The increase in the demand for open source Linux software & RTOS software is expected to offer a lucrative growth to the embedded software market.
There are many innovative use-cases in manufacturing for mobile software. Some of the more prevalent examples will be discussed below.
China has long since ceased to be the "workbench of the world". In the manufacturing industry, rising wages and the "China 2025" development program are constantly accelerating the demand for automation solutions.
White Paper - Architecting a Scalable Real-Time Application on an SMP Platform
The touchscreen user interfaces and software not only motivate line workers, they create a more team based approach to manufacturing execution that instills a new culture, and closed-loop of accountability in the factory
In a recent project, Renishaw used its additive manufacturing (metal 3D printing) expertise to help the University Hospital of Wales (UHW) treat a patient who suffered cancer of the lower jaw and required removal of the affected region coupled with reconstructive work.
Crown relies on FASTSUITE Edition 2 for offline programming of robotic welding cells.
The modern factory floor relies on APIs because the technology allows manufacturers to effectively track and oversee every step of the value chain from start to finish. It also helps ensure machinery is working efficiently.
In absence of Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES), reporting is purely historical and is often available too late to take action on its findings. MES enables non-conformances to be addressed in the present and minimize their potential impact.
Offline Programming Software is Single Solution for Robotic Hammer Peening of Automotive Stamping Dies
Total programming time for one workpiece, including the time to import a CAD file and create a toolpath, was reduced from 12 hours to only 3.5 hours.
Chris J. Preimesberger for eWeek: Webalo 4.0 gives enterprise users the ability to quickly and automatically generate dynamic desktop and mobile persona-based apps using wizards and drop-down menus.
In this article, we look at ways in which the world of HPC (High-performance computing) is approaching the latest disruptions and trends, and how the world of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) must match this proactive rather than reactive stance.
Companies who do not carry out emulation (or virtual commissioning) can only start controls testing when the real system is at least predominantly assembled, which means they are near ramp and handover, with a large amount of unpredictable testing yet to be started, and probably onsite and under close client scrutiny. Hardly the best of conditions for carrying out the methodical task of analytical verification, debugging and repair.
Automation is worthwhile particularly when there are large amounts of data, the tasks are repetitive or certain data is already available electronically in databases or other systems.

A low cost, reliable way to cool and purge electronic control panels. EXAIR Cabinet Coolers incorporate a vortex tube to produce cold air from compressed air - with no moving parts. NEMA 12, 4, and 4X Cabinet Coolers that match the NEMA rating of the enclosure are available in many cooling capacities for large and small control panels. Cabinet Coolers convert an ordinary supply of compressed air into clean, cold 20ºF air.
