Julian Mitchell for Forbes: LAYR is a cloud-based, end-to-end 3D printing software that makes creating and printing 3D objects easy and efficient.
Custom pushback rack improves storage density, safety at Hyundai Powertech
OZY.com: In Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Pittsburgh and Robert Morris University are at the forefront of additive technology.
Connected Manufacturing is the ability to drive data that is meaningful to the cloud for big data analysis. The current trend in Industry 4.0 is to be able to sense specific points in end equipment to enable advanced analytics to be run on distributed edge computing devices to determine whether machines are operating within tolerances and predict a potential failure before it happens.
Michael Molitch-Hou for Engineering.com: At Formlabs' Digital Factory event in Boston, Mass., the firm unveiled the Form Cell, a system for batch production using Form 2 SLA 3D printers, and the Fuse 1, its desktop selective laser sintering (SLS) machine.
Alex Knapp for Forbes: That push for innovation is one reason why Team Penske signed a deal with 3D printing company Stratasys earlier this year for technical support and services.
Sydney Baum-Haines for Minnesota Daily: The method has the potential to print tactile sensors onto prosthetic limbs or surgical robots.
This technology can be used to fabricate microstructures with outstanding mechanical properties, which have promising potential uses in implants and other biomedical applications.
In response to consumer demand and competitive pressures, product variation is on the rise. That variation changes the manufacturing calculus somewhat, as the required variation and corresponding complexity means that the ability to think critically and independently and adjust to changing circumstances is a priority.
Designing the optimal material handling systems requires a deep understanding of the product, process, and challenges inherent in the manufacturing process.
While OCT is widely utilized in other industries, its use in 3D printing is a new concept. Axsun has added OCT imaging capabilities to the printhead of industrial 3D printers to enable real-time, high-resolution scanning of each layer as it is being deposited.
Michael Molitch-Hou for Engineering.com: Between the worlds of CNC machining and additive manufacturing (AM), there lies a bridge technology referred to as hybrid manufacturing
Unsupervised Machine Learning is much more cost effective than Supervised Machine Learning because the algorithm does not need blueprints or understanding of the physical process to "learn" the behavior of the asset.
Measuring the number of perfect picks, volume of picks, savings by replacing traditional RF guns are data points that allow 3PLs (third party logistics) to quantify both a rapid ROI (return on investment) and TCO (total cost of ownership)
Often described as a building block of the 'Digital Industrial Revolution', a smart factory makes use of digital technologies including the Internet-of-Things, Big Data Analytics, Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Robotics to increase productivity, quality and flexibility.
