Manufacturing sites of all kinds now find themselves potentially vulnerable to new types of cyber-attacks - the kinds that turn our own connected devices and equipment against us.
The benefits of additive manufacturing are hard to ignore. So, why hasn't it achieved wider adoption? There are a few important hurdles that AM needs to clear for the aerospace industry at large to get on board.
We compiled ten of our favorite RFID applications that give you ideas for possible use cases and what benefits you can expect to gain by using industrial RFID.
Manufacturing industry has to ensure that all the products being manufactured are of high quality, right specifications and perform the required functions. Two processes help in ensuring that - instrument calibration and validation.
While the connected factory demands new and emerging technologies to be overlaid and interwoven into the manufacturing environment, existing systems such as MES, ERP and ECM are also at the forefront of IoT enablement.
Booth #E9238 - EWI UltraThinSeal will present sealing demos on an ultrasonic reciprocating-style VFFS bagmaker, making real packages from thin, complex flexible packaging films.
Many companies believe and perpetuate the myth that AM is only a prototyping tool, innovators in a range of markets (e.g., aerospace, healthcare, consumer goods and more) are already using AM for production-grade manufacturing when design, performance and cost factors align
The need for precise motion control is driven by many demands now placed on the line, from moving products around on the manufacturing floor to a variety of work stations to the logistics of moving the finished product through a facility.
Additive manufacturing enables not just personalisation but also, importantly, cost reduction and gains in success. There are sure to emerge many more potential applications.
Designing sensors that offer the capacity to communicate wirelessly and synthesize data with a cloud-based interface are one of the most important factors to consider when designing sensors for factories.
Operations managers report that when new workers are exposed to the latest mobile voice technologies, there is vastly higher job satisfaction and employee retention, while immediately increasing their value to new employers.
Manufacturing Management for Complex Products: The IIoT Enables Real-Time Visibility and Intelligence
Solutions that bring IIoT, analytics and cloud technologies together in easily deployed, flexible platforms are now available, and providing real business value.
Novarc Technologies Inc. creates robots for spool welding and other custom welding operations. To enhance the operator experience, Novarc turned to COPA-DATA's zenon to create a simple user interface for its robotic welding machines.
Booth #E8902 - Emulate3D for Machine Builders brings together within a virtual environment the "two truths" of all automation systems - the mechanical truth (that's the CAD model), and the logical truth (that's the control system), before it becomes costly to modify either.
Researchers at NYU Tandon and NYU Abu Dhabi are the First to Convert Flat QR Codes into Complex Features Hidden within 3D-Printed Parts to Foil Counterfeiters and IP Pirates.

Awe-inspiring power and superior flexibility is sheathed within the contoured casing of the HAWK MV-4000. This smart camera builds upon the previous generation by quadrupling processing power and achieving real-time trigger response using an FPGA. Its state-of-the-art algorithms make it an excellent tool for any industry, whether the requirement be code reading, code verification, inspection, guidance, gauging or a combination of all four.
