Converting metal components to plastic could provide more advantages for your production process and final product. In fact, OEMs that choose to make the switch capitalize on the added versatility of plastic, and realize a number of valuable benefits
Think of AR in an IIoT manufacturing context: now technicians with AR can remotely monitor, change and maintain systems without putting the operator in danger; however, AR requires a massive amount of network resources.
In the past manufacturability was often foremost in the designer's 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.
The deployment of hyperscale data centres has typically been in a relatively small number of central locations. However, this has to change.
Maybe, it is not all about innovation; it is about the integration of designs in the right sequential manner that does not hinder the efficiency of new designs.
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.
An argument can be made for the flexible shaft being one of the backbones of the aerospace industry, and it isn't difficult to see why. From windshield wipers to TRAS systems to jet afterburners, flexible shafts are there ...
There is no general answer concerning the maximum cable length. A cable length of up to 10 m can be handled without any problems if some special measures are taken into account. Even cable lengths up to 50 or 100 m have been successfully in use ...
As most facilities managers can attest to, the electricity used to produce compressed air can be one of the most expensive energy costs in your facility.
What enables you to deal with disputes effectively and with a minimum of disruption is to understand that the best way to resolve a controversy is to take steps to ensure that the outcome is what is expected - i.e., that the outcome is what it should be.
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 ...
Watson and Crick. Lennon and McCartney. Hewlett and Packard. Three examples of successful collaborations whose achievements had a dramatic and long-term impact on their respective industries.
Big data and automation represent two very important tools that should help us create a brand-new type of manufacturing that doesn't require as much constant human attention and effort. It should, at the same time, vastly improve the safety and accuracy ...
This article reviews the motion control scene, and places the introduction of the Hybrid Hexapod® in context for pan-industrial manufacturers working at the bleeding edge of precision and repeatability.

Sierra Instruments announces the launch of its new flow energy solution for managing and optimizing flow measurement for industrial facilities of all sizes. It features Sierra's QuadraTherm 640i/780i thermal flow meters, their InnovaMass 240i/241i vortex flow meters, and their new InnovaSonic 207i ultrasonic flow meter. Designed, built, and calibrated in the USA by Sierra, the Big-3TM share the same revolutionary Raptor firmware and many of the same software apps. They are a complete flow energy solution for flows like compressed air, natural gas, steam, and hot and chilled water. Together, they set a new standard in ease-of-purchase, performance, accuracy, reliability, and ease of use.
