Schneider Electric Launches First Smart Factory in the U.S. Demonstrating Quantifiable, Real-Time Benefits of Innovative EcoStruxure Solutions
The facility is a showcase for sharing IIoT integration strategies with End Users, Machine Builders and Partners. The Smart Factory has tracked quantifiable benefits from IIoT implementation, including a 20% reduction in mean time to repair and a 90% paperwork elimination.
Essentially, we've reigned in the power requirements of our devices by up to three orders of magnitude, which lets us do everything we need to do off that small form-factor harvesting budget.
Q&A with PBC Linear: With lead screw accuracy up to 3x tighter than industry standard screws, and backlash control up to 4x better than traditional solutions, performance is improved and overall life extended.
ZebraTechnology today announced the results of its 2024 Warehousing Vision Study, analyzing IT and operations decision makers' strategies for modernizing their warehouses, distribution centers and fulfillment centers.
We all know the logic of purchasing: The unit costs for 1 piece are higher than for 10 pieces and these cost per piece more than 100 pieces, and so on. At the same time, the trend is clearly moving in the direction of smaller batch sizes down to a quantity of one.
Safety used to be treated somewhat as an afterthought, in that it was added as a separate system once all the other production equipment was in place. Nowadays, many manufacturers are seeing the benefits of integrated safety systems.
Tagging essential equipment and tools guards against theft, loss, and misplacement while improving workflow, maintenance, and asset management.
Choosing the right compact enclosure is overwhelming. Hundreds of choices in materials, configurations and ratings can lead to confusion and mistakes when specifying the right product.
Professional 3D Printing and Windform® composite materials used in the manufacturing of two innovative aero-elastic wind tunnel demonstrators
Professional 3D printing has revolutionized the entire process of construction and verification of the parts allowing the following: faster production speed and possibility of optimizing the internal shape of these aerodynamic sections.
With the arrival of 5G technology, the manufacturing industry faces its biggest transformation yet. Safer, flexible and more efficient manufacturing systems will be possible thanks to the ultra-low-latency and reliability of 5G connectivity.
Recently, the manufacturing sector has discovered the potential of AR and VR in cutting costs and increasing safety and productivity. But what exactly are the applications of this revolutionary technologies in the factory?
Modern manufacturers face key challenges to reaching their Industry 4.0 potential. MarkLogic knows data is your greatest asset to better serve customers, improve products, and navigate those complex environments.
DS3 is a self-contained start-to-finish production facility for vertical and horizontal machining centers and double-column machining centers. This is the third smart factory investment by Okuma.
To keep up with an ever-changing manufacturing supply chain landscape, it is imperative that organizations find the right price management tool to centralize such massive amounts of pricing data and comprehensively and accurately recommend price changes.
The industry consistently says that, to support growth, it needs education and training. Part of that is for a manufacturer to understanding AM but part of that is for AM experts to understand manufacturing.

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
