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.
PACK EXPO was held from September 25th - 27th in Las Vegas. This ManufacturingTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years event.
Charles Q. Choi for IEEE Spectrum: Researchers reveal three methods of verifying that 3d-printed parts have not been compromised by someone hacking the printer itself.
SKF is building a new generation of manufacturing systems, which embrace the power of today's digital technologies to achieve a further step-change in speed, efficiency and flexibility.
Although some manufacturing leaders and their employees are hesitant to embrace new technology and hardware on the job site, these innovations are here to stay. Those who adapt to these new standards sooner rather than later will be ready to tackle Industry 4.0 and reap all the benefits it has to offer.
Mike Wall, SPACE.com: A 3D printer built by the California-based company Made in Space churned out multiple polymer-alloy objects - the largest of which was a 33.5-inch-long (85 centimeters) beam - during a 24-day test inside a thermal vacuum chamber (TVAC) here in Silicon Valley at NASA's Ames Research Center in June.
Flexible hone provides fine surface finish for internal bores, along with edge breaking of undercuts and deburring of intersecting drilled holes.
At the heart of IIoT is the way companies capture and share data. The ability to have data about inventory needs immediately available in the cloud and available to both plant floor managers and suppliers offers unheard-of visibility that heightens operational performance.

EXAIR's new Basics of Static Electricity Webinar will help you learn what causes static electricity. Static be a large disruptor of processes within manufacturing facilities. It can cause problems with maintaining product quality, keeping process speeds at optimum levels and the morale of personnel experiencing static shocks. Knowing how to identify a static charge, the series of events that are causing the charge, and various ways to eliminate the nuisance, are keys to keeping your facility on top of its game. Attend this Webinar to learn how to determine if static electricity is actually the issue and methods to test for it. Learn several methods used in industry to eliminate static charge. Register to watch our Webinar live on November 7th at 2 pm or on demand. https://exair.co/184_fweb
