In the vision market, we're really at that initial AI and machine learning phase. AI for inspection excels at locating, identifying, and classifying objects and segmenting scenes and defects, with less sensitivity to image variability or distortion.
The factory in a box could be located in front of a hospital, next to a shopping center, or near a school. The integrated air-conditioning system with air purification filters makes production possible even in places with high risk of viral contamination.
Trouble often comes from the surfaces that warehouses, processing plants and other facilities use. Without the right surface material, bacteria can collect even with the right practices in place - raising the risk of food contamination.
In the semiconductor industry, cleanliness and precision are absolutely critical. Swiss vacuum specialist VAT therefore partnered up with maxon to develop a drive system for wafer processing.
According to an industry survey, the majority of food manufacturing companies are expecting to increase production. However, the same study suggested automation does not offer enough flexibility to fulfil an increase in production.
Within the realm of manufacturing, one thing is abundantly clear: supply chains are intrinsically tied and vulnerable to just about everything in our world today.
Companies will need to quickly find ways to sustain their business, mitigate all supply chain risks, and be more flexible to the new environment. These requirements will drive a need for greater visibility and control over operations.
When the manufacturing industry emerges out of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will see the rapid trend of digitalization. However, to achieve maximum success - this will only happen if manufacturers finally deal with the challenge of data silos!
By continually monitoring the condition of your equipment's most critical mechanical and electrical components, failures can be avoided with predictive maintenance carried out during scheduled downtimes, resulting in continual operations.
Using proven software and hardware, Siemens has developed a unique workplace distancing solution that helps manufacturers to simulate and manage employee exposure risks while enabling productivity throughout their facilities
Now, with concerns over China's handling of the virus, rising labor costs across the developing world and apprehension about geographically concentrated supply chains, companies are placing bets on the next hotspot for affordable manufacturing services.
The smooth running of any warehouse or factory operation depends on raw, component and finished materials being processed efficiently and safely and getting this right can help a business gain a real competitive advantage.
A camera-supported alignment and measuring system ensures precise, fast measurement of straightness and flatness in mechanical engineering.
Satair, an Airbus services company, wanted to expedite aircraft maintenance through on-demand tools manufacturing. Fast Radius worked with Satair to deliver an innovative multi-process manufacturing solution that has the potential to transform the aerospace market.
Balti Virtual recently piloted an immersive training experience for The Army, which replaced a slide deck and video. The result was a gamified training experience that created more engagement and better retention than traditional methods.
