While legacy stent and tube cutting systems have performed well during recent decades, new cutting technologies coming onto the market offer faster and better cuts, with higher production rates and new and unique cutting capabilities.
This production volume materials approach will allow us to ensure that our partners like adidas, which will be printing thousands or millions of parts, can do so economically compared to other manufacturing methods such as injection molding.
Eventually, 3D scanners and 3D printers are likely to become one solution, similar to how 2D scanners have now been integrated into 2D printers.
Cliff Kuang for Fast Co.Design: The bridge is really just a proof-of-concept for printed steel applications that range from shipbuilding to offshore oil rigs. Getting there will require not just better software, but robots that can teach themselves how to get better at 3D printing.
Rosemarie Stahl for ETMM: Okuma, manufacturer of CNC machine tools, introduces its solution for the smart production called Connect Plan at EMO Hannover 2017.
Tim Sandle for Digital Journal: The micro-factory concept is based on robotics and a flexible approach to manufacturing. Then key selling point is that the factory can be set-up and put to work very quickly.
To meet consumer demands for authentic and fresh-tasting foods, some innovative packaging technologies are doing the job normally given to preservatives, enabling manufacturers to keep the ingredient list to a minimum.
Zacks Equity Research: The HSS technology involves an infrared absorbing ink, that is selectively jetted onto layers of plastic powder, which are then exposed to infrared light. The powder melts under the light and forms functional plastic parts with qualities similar to those produced via Selective Laser Sintering, Multi Jet Fusion, or injection molding.
Steve Twydell for ITProPortal: Rapid advances in artificial intelligence will change the way we manage logistics across a range of industries says Steve Twydell, CEO of transport management experts 3T Logistics.
Stephanie Condon for ZDNet: The maturity of automated technology used in manufacturing is all over the map, says Carnegie Mellon Prof. Howie Choset, but there are concrete ways to fix that.
Remi El-Ouazzane for Intel: The First Vision Processing Unit with a Dedicated Neural Compute Engine will Give Devices the Ability to See, Understand and Interact with the World Around Them in Real Time
We now make the part from solid, less expensive bar stock -- the whole part, including putting points on the end of the fins for water flow, taking cycle time down to 35% of what is used to take machining extruded stock. And now it is a stronger part as well.
Predictive maintenance is revolutionizing the industry and transforming the entire operation. This technology predicts problems in a factory before they even happen, changing the paradigm and preventing disasters.
Nell Walker for Manufacturing Global: Using laser ultrasound rather than camera imaging, it is hoped that Dutton's work could encourage the use of 3D printing within mass manufacturing industries, as it removes the need for a separate inspection process.
Nobody's bottom line is more valuable than the human lives that help create it. To that end, consider the following best practices for shoring up safety in your facility.

Zaber's X-LRQ-DE Series of linear stages have high stiffness, load, and lifetime capabilities in a compact size. The integrated linear encoder combined with stage calibration provides high accuracy positioning over the full travel of the device. At 36 mm high, these stages are excellent for applications where a low profile is required. The X-LRQ-DE's innovative design allows speeds up to 205 mm/s and loads up to 100 kg. Like all Zaber products, the X-LRQ-DE Series is designed for easy set-up and operation.
