One distinct benefit of the IoT is that it's generally available to every area of the economy, and this particularly holds true for energy efficiency improvements.
In most cases, re-manufactured hardware is better because it's closer to new. That doesn't mean refurbished hardware is bad, just that you should remain aware of the differences.
America Makes, Laser Institute of America, Fab Foundation and Fab Lab Hub Collaborate in 2018 Digital Fabrication Conference
Thought leaders in 3D Printing, Smart Manufacturing, New Collar Workforce training, STEM education and Entrepreneurship explore how new digital fabrication tools like 3D Printing are changing the world
Brian Heater for TechCrunch: Using an augmented reality headset and two controllers, the designer builds a 3D model using a CAD (computer-aided design) program. A robotic arm then goes to work constructing a skeletal model using a simple plastic depositing 3D printer
Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) offers network convergence and will enable effective implementations of Industrial Internet-of-the-Things set-ups.
An efficient manufacturer must get products in and out of a cell quickly and reliably. Vision systems paired with robotic operations can put an operation at a competitive advantage by providing opportunities to make more and streamline the process
The Engineer: Researchers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have used a new 3D printing technique to produce complex nanoscale metal structures that are orders of magnitude smaller than previously possible.
Cao Chen via The Telegarph: Shanghai has installed a set of 3D printed bus shelters, believed to be the world's first, to serve a bus route in suburban Jinshan district
RS Components have created an interactive graphic, The Manufacturing Capitals of the World. which reveals who came out on top in 2010, 2016 and who is expected to dominate the sector in 2020.
Crown relies on FASTSUITE Edition 2 for offline programming of robotic welding cells.
Andrew Krok for CNet: When it comes to plastic, Porsche uses selective laser sintering, which is not the same as the fused deposition modeling that you see in most desktop-based 3D printers.
Perhaps more than any other industry, manufacturing logistics requires a fluid and flexible model. Manufacturers-and, consequently, their transportation and logistics partners-need to be flexible enough to respond to sudden fluctuations in the marketplace.
This approach is superior to standard molding procedures because of the high level of scientific control utilized through upfront Design of Experiments (DoE), flow analysis, process monitoring, and quality control that can quickly detect and correct any process variations.
Deborah Weinswig for Forbes: One overall theme of next week's Magic event is moving into the future in terms of manufacturing fashion, reimagining retail and, ultimately, creating and adopting solutions to achieve speed.
Kata Karath for CoinTelegraph: 3D-TOKEN, a project of the Italian Politronica Srl startup wants to integrate it with Blockchain technology to create a 'one of a kind' glocal decentralized Just-In-Time Factory 4.0 matching the digital revolution of the 21st century.
