Implementing sophisticated CNC equipment and machines, to achieve automation, is not just expensive, it's also time-consuming. You can't just swap everything in one go and hope it works.
With growing energy demand and increasing focus on energy security and supply resiliency, governments and businesses alike have turned to digital strategies to shape the new energy landscape.
Automate is the largest and most inspiring showcase of robotics, motion control, vision, artificial intelligence and related automation technologies in North America. Bringing together 550+ exhibiting automation innovators, manufacturers and suppliers.
Introducing simple and effective technologies in the right ways can enable manufacturers to get more from their existing operations while also attracting and retaining talent for the long term.
Workforces that lack gender diversity will struggle to reach their full potential. Manufacturing must address this issue if it hopes to sustain growth far into the future.
Looking to decrease order cycle time and increase reach to the east coast, PUMA turned to long-time partner Bastian Solutions to help plan, strategize and integrate a new facility and automated warehouse system in Indianapolis, Indiana.
One of the key metrics for process efficiency is overall equipment efficiency (OEE). This KPI is related to the availability, performance and quality of the production process. High OEE often means good revenue.
Typically, collaboration between manufacturing sites is ad-hoc and disorganized at best. Spreadsheets, email chains and one-off instant messages make it taxing to locate information quickly.
While data centers, hospitals, and manufacturers were among the first to adopt the technology, demand for UPS systems is expanding to other users such as research facilities, schools, or anywhere with critical power applications.
One of the biggest challenges that enterprises face in their digitalization efforts is having too many complex data silos and applications that don't follow a common architecture.
In the wake of landmark climate event, COP26, manufacturers are striving to align their activities with the global net zero targets. But the sector has a long way to go. It currently produces more than 16 gigatons of carbon dioxide (CO2) each year.
B axis calibration is critical in 5-axis machine performance verification to maintain quality, but due to the design of the rotary heads, it was not possible to mount equipment to the centre of these axes to verify performance.
While so much of the occupational health and safety (OHS) industry these days is about being proactive and recognizing and then hopefully eliminating hazards before they can even become an issue, accidents do still happen. And when they do, everyone needs to be prepared.
Aside from robotics, computer vision still has a lot to offer manufacturing. The first things that come to mind are process control and quality control. For example, a CV system can be put to work on a production line for defect monitoring.
According to 65% of those polled, improvements in design tools, tech innovation and new design methodologies have simplified efforts over the past three-to-five years. Still, a multitude of factors continue to hinder design engineering progress and innovation.

Be sure to attend the latest of EXAIR's webinars. Get educated on pneumatic industrial vacuums so you can break the cycle of replacing electric shop vacuums. Industrial environments often present a continual battle to keep them clean and safe. Unavoidable by-products of manufacturing processes include liquid and solids which often present hazards to personnel, products and processes. Solids may be trim, dusts, or chips from a manufacturing line; liquids may be coolant spills, coating overspray, or even burst packages. Cleaning up these materials often falls on the operators of the equipment who need reliable, adaptable, safe and effective tools for cleanup. Supplying them with tools which fail frequently or do not meet the requirements of the safety team is a recipe for disaster. Attend this webinar to gain an understanding of how pneumatic vacuums can reduce the maintenance, increase reliability, and improve flexibility for your facility. Attend live on May 24th at 2 p.m.
