New manufacturing technology and the move to digital is being embraced globally, because manufacturers realize this is necessary to survive, and thrive.
Multiple axis welding positioners are being implemented in many industries to reduce the footprint required to process and access parts, while minimizing the number of times a part must be manually moved.
Transitioning to 5-axis machining requires both a time and financial investment. But, like all investments, long-term it will pay off. The faster you begin to make the switch, the faster you will start to see the benefits.
Eric Wildstein for Gaston Gazette: Students can apply these earned credentials toward earning an associate degree at an institution of higher learning or to find employment in the manufacturing and industrial workforce.
Dave Pinter for PSFK: The process works with the robot arm dispensing a stream of silicone into a tank of clear gel, the consistence of which isn't too far off from hair gel. The technique allows for object with internal volumes to be printed without extra internal support.
In just the last 12-18 months, the culture and consequences of opioid drug use has supplanted internal theft, sexual harassment and other issues, emerging as the primary focus of most of the internal undercover investigations for manufacturing clients.
Sensors withstand extreme temperatures, pressures and aggressive chemicals.
Recently Stäubli introduced two compact fully automatic tool change systems, the MPS 130 and the MPS 260, for the medium payload segment, Stäubli Connectors rounds off the lower end of its existing series.
Will Knight for MIT Technology Review: Perceiving dynamic actions could be a huge advance in how software makes sense of the world.
Evaluating Electronics Contract Manufacturers from Two Perspectives: Supply Chain Management and Engineering
The ideal contract manufacturer is more than a transactional supplier, but a partner that improves the product and process.
-Names Sudhi Bangalore to lead center that will eventually house approximately 50 Industry 4.0 professionals. -Announces launch of STANLEY+Techstars Additive Manufacturing Accelerator to bring start-ups to Hartford
The MFG Token provides the incentive for precision parts suppliers to be more responsive to RFQ's (Requests for Quotes) initially on SyncFab ultimately on the Smart Manufacturing Smart Contract compatible blockchain.
At the cutting edge of this trend are new types of human-machine interactions, such as virtual reality, next-generation design tools, 3-D printing, and collaborative robots. As these complementary technologies begin to link multiple factories with designers, supply-chain partners, distributors, and customers, the sector can form more dynamic digital networks and turn around the trend of slowing productivity growth.
Manufacturers are increasing productivity 10-40% and reducing tooling costs by addressing an often overlooked flaw in toolholder-retention knob design.
How Integrated Thermal Protection Technology Can Prevent Solid State Relay Failure in Industrial Systems

Sierra Instruments announces the launch of its new flow energy solution for managing and optimizing flow measurement for industrial facilities of all sizes. It features Sierra's QuadraTherm 640i/780i thermal flow meters, their InnovaMass 240i/241i vortex flow meters, and their new InnovaSonic 207i ultrasonic flow meter. Designed, built, and calibrated in the USA by Sierra, the Big-3TM share the same revolutionary Raptor firmware and many of the same software apps. They are a complete flow energy solution for flows like compressed air, natural gas, steam, and hot and chilled water. Together, they set a new standard in ease-of-purchase, performance, accuracy, reliability, and ease of use.
