New 3D Printing Method Based on Ultrasonic Manipulation Technology

Ultrasonic manipulation uses ultrasonic waves for handling of a wide range of components and materials, which potentially enables the creation of a more versatile 3D printers. Because of the non-contact nature of ultrasonic manipulation, particles and components with very different mechanical properties and shapes can be handled with a single ultrasonic manipulator.

If Foxconn builds a manufacturing plant in Wisconsin, it won't be what many expect

John Schmid , Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: Does Wisconsin have the deep reserves of digital-age systems engineers who are coveted in the new manufacturing economy

How to specify an electric linear actuator that's industrial strength

When it comes to linear actuators, the housing, fasteners, rod, gasket and seals need to have the required corrosion resistance in order for the actuator to withstand the environment.

The Role of Big Data in Industrial Manufacturers' Growth

The world of industry has been steadily advancing since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, and this new move toward data-driven manufacturing strategy is simply the next step in revolutionizing the industry.

Pragmatism Pervades Smart Factory Floor

Gary Hilson for EBN Online: The smart factory is becoming a reality, but the transition to Industry 4.0 is a pragmatic one.

Augury Secures $17 Million Series B Funding Round to Power the Future of IIoT

Eclipse Ventures and Munich Re / HSB Ventures Co-Lead Round for NYC IIoT Startup

Job Shop Manufacturing: Manual Material Transport Could Cost You $1m/year

So how can you improve the value stream while reducing wasted time and money to incorporate lean manufacturing principles? The answer lies in one word: Automation.

Three promising IIoT platform options aim to improve manufacturing

Linda Rosencrance for TechTarget: Given the exploding industrial internet of things market, surveying the choices can be overwhelming. To get you started, here's a look at three platforms and their focus areas.

Insights from the Factory Floor

Many companies have made significant investment in control systems that look at individual types of machines. But a single process may use many different machines that speak different languages and have different control requirements.

IIoT And The CyberThreat: A Perfect Storm Of Risk

Chris Grove for MBT Mag: Some organizations have a false sense of security and believe their industrial control systems cant be easily compromised.

Why Smart Manufacturing Is Guaranteed to Need Industrial Robotics

By connecting manufacturing leaders with end-users, implementing machines that are able to maintain themselves and teaching current employees how to work with the new line of industrial robotics, proactive and tech-savvy manufacturers are in a position to revolutionize the way they do business from this point forward.

The factory of the future is here, and it's digitized

Scott Kirsner for Boston Globe: The revolution is about three things: more advanced software for designing things; devices like 3-D printers that can quickly crank out a prototype; and robots and other technologies that will make the factory floor more efficient and flexible.

Talking Industry 4.0 with Mark Kojak, HARTING, Inc.

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.

How Innovations Are Driving Advanced Technology in Manufacturing

By connecting their factories all over the world, manufacturers can see the entire operation. They can make updates in real-time. They have vision into which plants are running efficiently or where there are production issues.

How Data Management Can Keep the Supply Chain on Track

Although it's still in an evolutionary state, big data is already showing tremendous potential across nearly all industries, professions and applications.
