For small-batch series and customized parts, additive technologies offer a drastically faster time-to-market than conventional manufacturing as prior tool-production is not required.
Booth #134638. CGI's custom gearbox is used to drive the spindle onboard JPL's latest coring drill test unit for the Mars 2020 mission.
When working with large diesel engines, or commercial aerospace systems that require the output of large metal parts with complex shapes, creative solutions are required to hold and protect them throughout the downstream machining and finishing process.
By relying on 3D Printing, they can create new products in a fast and cost-effective way, and experiment with designs with almost no design limitations or material waste. But how do they efficiently manage their Additive Manufacturing (AM) production?
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.
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.
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.
Minimising cyber security threats on industrial control systems. Without a strong commitment to security, manufacturers will fall victim to the many pitfalls faced by open protocols.

EXAIR's compressed air operated Line Vac connects to standard hose or tube to create a powerful in-line conveyor. The compact design features large throat diameters for maximum throughput capability. Eleven sizes in aluminum and ten in stainless steel are suited to a wide variety of transfer applications. Line Vac conveyors are ideal for moving large volumes of material over long distances. A small amount of compressed air is injected through directed nozzles to produce a vacuum on one end and high output flows on the other, with instantaneous response. The material flow rate is easily controlled with a pressure regulator. An optional bracket permits easy mounting. No moving parts or electricity assures maintenance free operation. Line Vacs are available in a number of styles, materials, and sizes, including Line Vac, Threaded Line Vac, Heavy Duty Line Vac, Sanitary Flange Line Vac and Light Duty Line Vac.
