It might sound reductive to call out just four top tips to help you navigate today's and tomorrow's supply chains, but we hope you find them instructive about the direction in which things are headed.
How innovations in automation, regulatory changes and a changing workforce converge.
The 6 S system is a modified version of the Lean Manufacturing principle of 5 S. Developed by Taiichi Ohno, an industrial engineer for Toyota, Lean Production is a systemic method designed to optimize the efficiency of a business.
Recognizing the need for connectivity, data access, and scalability, Teel Plastics executives worked to develop a competitive strategy that would also enable them to capitalize on the benefits of the Internet of Things (IoT).
After years of focusing on supply chain and operational initiatives, OEMs are now turning their sights to aftermarket growth. In fact, a recent TSC survey shows that for 46% of service leaders, Service Revenue will be the top initiative for 2018.
There are a number of manufacturing issues that come up when projection welding fasteners onto hot stamped boron steel components. In most cases, the weld nuts and studs used are considerably softer than the 1500 MPa stamping.
How POSCO is addressing market obstacles and protecting its vital steel production assets from corrosion.
Holthinrichs Watches is working with a Renishaw Additive Manufacturing Solutions Centre to build up knowledge about the potential of metal additive manufacturing (AM) and to speed up the overall manufacturing process for high-end, limited-edition watches.
Unless we start investing in digital tools that connect our workers and help foster knowledge sharing and communication, we are not helping them take on more advanced equipment and complex problem solving.
Lean manufacturing primarily focuses on eliminating waste of different kinds. Let us look at the seven 'wastes' that plague various industrial processes and how you can eliminate them by using industrial scales.
From the outside it looks just like any other industrial brushless servo motor but inside it utilized advanced manufacturing techniques to provide higher torque, higher speed, smoother operation, higher efficiency, and better inertial matching in a smaller package.
Industrial Control, like many other systems, are vulnerable to insider attacks. However, they have the additional challenge that they are still largely based on technology from several decades ago, when systems were totally air-gapped from the rest of the world.
A safety controller that is easy to use and implement can make a big difference in getting your safety solution up and running quickly and effectively. But a safety controller is just one piece of a safety solution.
OEMs that make parts or products from flat-rolled steel, aluminum and other metals are eliminating in-house lamination operations and outsourcing to experienced coil coaters instead.
If temperature-sensitive freight is literally your bread and butter, the following guide provides some useful fundamentals to remember for this vital and somewhat finicky corner of the world economy.

EXAIR Cabinet Cooler® Systems are a low cost, easy to install, maintenance free way to cool and purge electronic control panels. EXAIR Cabinet Coolers incorporate a vortex tube that produces cold air from ordinary compressed air - with no moving parts. The compact Cabinet Cooler can be installed in minutes through a standard electrical knockout. NEMA 12, 4, and 4X (IP54 and IP66) Cabinet Coolers that match the NEMA rating of the enclosure are available in many cooling capacities for large and small control panels. NEMA 12 Cabinet Coolers are ideal for general industrial environments where no liquids or corrosives are present. NEMA 4 Cabinet Coolers incorporate a low pressure relief valve for both the vortex tube and cabinet air exhaust. This valve closes and seals when the cooler is not operating to maintain the integrity of a NEMA 4 enclosure. NEMA 4X Cabinet Coolers offer the same protection as NEMA 4 but are constructed of stainless steel for food service and corrosive environments.
