How to Ensure Effective Network Segmentation

The main idea of Continuous Network Verification is to assure that the network is resilient and protected by ensuring your network's behavior matches your intentions.

3D Printing for Surgical Procedures

3D printing is becoming the standard in preparing for surgical procedures, using patient-specific models, and implanting devices and tissue during the operation with the help of surgical guides.

Big Opportunities in IoT Tech for Process Manufacturing

The report examines the technology by software, hardware and networking elements, all of which comprise the IoT system. Software is forecast as the fastest growing market (31.0% CAGR) over the next five years; although hardware currently has the largest installed base.

The Difference Between Digital Thrivers and Digital Survivors in Manufacturing

While manufacturers aspire to digitally transform their operations, many lack the data-centric foundation required to support this digital shift and face an uphill battle with legacy systems. Here's how to push past this constraint to realize digital dividends.

3d Modelling and Printing - Saving Theatre Time and Providing Excellent Patient Outcomes

In a recent project, Renishaw used its additive manufacturing (metal 3D printing) expertise to help the University Hospital of Wales (UHW) treat a patient who suffered cancer of the lower jaw and required removal of the affected region coupled with reconstructive work.

Why Manufacturers Are Focusing on Cognitive and Predictive Asset Management

With off shoring trend reversing in most countries, on shoring with smart plants are becoming increasingly popular choice. Comparesoft studied the key reasons why manufacturers are adopting cognitive and predictive maintenance strategies in their smart plants.

The Benefits of Lean Manufacturing

Some of the challenges that manufacturers face to accomplish lean manufacturing are introducing a manufacturing cost reduction model; the optimization of material and product flow; site planning and expansion; the design of a risk management system

Hand Loads: Cost Effective Solutions for Complex Plastic Parts

It's important to note that hand loads require extra labor for installation and removal. While this may skew the cost/benefit analysis, it may also be the only way to meet the customer's needs.

How Green Has Manufacturing Become Over the Years?

If manufacturers continue to make their processes more sustainable and consumers continue to support their environmental efforts, perhaps we'll one day live in a truly sustainable society.

CAD Essentials for Fabrication at the Tipping Point of Industry 4.0

While the entire fabrication industry is busy integrating IoT with their machines for data, machine to machine communication and intelligible foresight, let us not forget the place of origin for fabrication - concept designing and modeling in CAD

Industrial Robots: Encoders for Tool Center Point Accuracy

The use of secondary encoders on all of a robot's axes, as well as the use of linear encoders for positioning the robot relative to the workpiece, enables a level of accuracy at the tool center point

Improve Part Quality With Multi-axis Welding Positioners

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.

Designing Safe Pneumatic Circuits

Pneumatic circuits can be safe when carefully examined and implemented. The designers can use the appropriate level of reliability based on their assessment of the risk and frequency of the potential risk.

APIs for the Modern Factory Floor

The modern factory floor relies on APIs because the technology allows manufacturers to effectively track and oversee every step of the value chain from start to finish. It also helps ensure machinery is working efficiently.

The Future of 3D Printing

Many companies that know how to design for metal 3D printing have found suitable applications and have ordered parts. But these applications are still in their infancy.

EXAIR Product News Understanding Compressed Air Safety and Savings

EXAIR Product News Understanding Compressed Air Safety and Savings

Why is compressed air safety a concern? Compressed air is commonly referred to as the "fourth utility" because it is very common as a resource within manufacturing, mining and processing environments. Are there regulations that govern the use of compressed air? Yes, OSHA has two important standards relevant to compressed air. Standard 29 CFR 1910.242(b) is specific to compressed air use for cleaning and states - "Compressed air shall not be used for cleaning purposes except where reduced to less than 30 p.s.i. and then only with effective chip guarding and personal protective equipment. How do EXAIR's engineered air nozzles work? Air Nozzles use the Coanda effect to amplify compressed airflow up to 25 times or more. The air is always ejected so it can vent safely, well below OSHA dead end pressure requirements, should the nozzle end be blocked. Learn more now.
