Using continuous measurements reduces or even eliminates the production of faulty products and allows for consistent and repeatable production. This used to be an impossible task for small products.
Most entry-level 3D printers work by extruding material, and while this has lots of cost and safety advantages, it does come with some limitations. Creating a part with extreme overhangs, arches, or angles can be a challenge. Supports make printing these geometries possible.
Organizations are implementing digital twins to get better perceptions regarding product performance, user experience, and to make better strategic decisions based on the visions provided by the digital twins.
Industry 4.0 is truly the future of manufacturing. Automation, robotics, machine learning, and data analytics are just a few examples of how the fourth industrial revolution affects the way wire and cable is made and how well companies compete on the world stage.
Cables with the proper shielding, i.e. foil plus braided shield or semi-conductive fleece with foil and a braid shield, prevent the VFD system from radiating electrical noise that can interfere with the surrounding networking, wireless communication, and industrial devices.
Artemis Vision, a company with more than 10 years of experience in quality assurance for manufacturing processes, develops vision systems for industrial automated inspection and logistics optimization that deliver reproducible and reliable results.
This article will be expanding on the different types of feedback devices in VFD (Variable Frequency Drives) and Servo applications, as well as some of the typical applications in which they are utilized.
A routine issue faced by most manufacturers is their process variation. Variability in the process can wreak havoc on product quality and customer satisfaction. Also, it has a severe impact on revenue, cost, and margins.
The implementation of strategic data quality capabilities can make or break a business. Many businesses suffer the consequences of risks and excess costs without ever understanding the root cause to be poor data quality or integration.
The multitude of challenges that manufacturers face today is accelerating the need to adapt process innovation, embrace technology, and digitalize operations. Transformation is essential for manufacturers to become more resilient, agile, productive, and profitable.
Due to digitalization in Industry 4.0, internal logistics is subject to constant change. Internal traceability, i.e. the tracking of goods in the warehouse or production facility, is increasingly playing a key role.
The benefits of automation are widely known, and most manufacturers aim to incorporate it into production to some degree. However, many of these targets have so far only resulted in plans, pilots or small scale automation projects.
Manufacturers have become increasingly reliant on cloud-based resources, such as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications and data migrating from the data center to multi-cloud environments. This requires a new model for secure network access.
Automation helps companies achieve greater flexibility and planning reliability, even in the case of multi-variant production. One factor that deters many companies from switching to automated processes, however, is time.
Those manufacturers that digitize their operations will gain significant advantages, and those that don't will have a more difficult time catching up.
