The factory in a box could be located in front of a hospital, next to a shopping center, or near a school. The integrated air-conditioning system with air purification filters makes production possible even in places with high risk of viral contamination.
Trouble often comes from the surfaces that warehouses, processing plants and other facilities use. Without the right surface material, bacteria can collect even with the right practices in place - raising the risk of food contamination.
A lot has been said about "digital transformations," and with good reason. Companies that want to survive realistically in a world with global competition and pressures require a paradigm shift to move forward.
This article presents a research study that determined the optimal error recovery method from a cost standpoint. And, while this research study only considered cost in error recovery, it shows the potential value of error recovery planning in automation plants.
A load bank can be an important asset in a variety of industries. Load banks are stationary or portable tools that mimic the expected electrical load on a power source in a commercial or industrial setting.
Multi Property Optimization for Injection Moulding to Maintain Safety and Reduce Manufacturing Costs
The company's collaboration with Additive Flow for a particularly challenging project involving a metal and polymer over moulded component, ensured yet another successful outcome for Comeragh that will open up further opportunities in the future.
A look at manufacturing and the COVID-19 pandemic shows the comparison to WWII is an apt one. From victory gardens to discussions of shared sacrifice to ramping up production of critical supplies, the parallels between the health crisis and WWII are hard to ignore.
For example, in many organizations, different business units buy similar products from multiple suppliers instead of buying everything from one supplier and benefiting from economies of scale. Procurement can see that, but the rest of the organization can't.
In the semiconductor industry, cleanliness and precision are absolutely critical. Swiss vacuum specialist VAT therefore partnered up with maxon to develop a drive system for wafer processing.
Sometimes the most difficult thing about AI is simply knowing where to start. Identifying potentially impactful use cases is one of the most cited roadblocks for organizations seeking to leverage AI in their business.
According to an industry survey, the majority of food manufacturing companies are expecting to increase production. However, the same study suggested automation does not offer enough flexibility to fulfil an increase in production.
Ensuring seamless laser weld quality control and manufacturing traceability, the monitors catch weld errors as they occur in real time, instead of reacting to defects downstream. This ultimately increases yield, improves quality, saves labor, and increases savings.
Within the realm of manufacturing, one thing is abundantly clear: supply chains are intrinsically tied and vulnerable to just about everything in our world today.
Companies will need to quickly find ways to sustain their business, mitigate all supply chain risks, and be more flexible to the new environment. These requirements will drive a need for greater visibility and control over operations.
When the manufacturing industry emerges out of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will see the rapid trend of digitalization. However, to achieve maximum success - this will only happen if manufacturers finally deal with the challenge of data silos!
