KEEPING TABS ON TECHNOLOGY FOR NATIONAL MANUFACTURING DAY. More than ever, today's manufacturing leaders need to stay ahead of the technology that can make or break not just their businesses, but disrupt their entire industry.
Adding two axes to the conventional three axes does technically create a machine with five axes, but this 3+2 mechanism does not exactly equal a 5-Axis machine.
The software used for computer-aided design (CAD) has significantly changed how manufacturers complete their projects and meet client needs. Here's a look at some changes this evolution caused:
The complex, large parts on the motorcycle proved difficult to manufacture. Curtiss' CNC suppliers quoted long lead times and had trouble delivering on the uncompromising design and quality requirements.
Since 2014, there has been a surge in investments in companies engaging in the 3D printing of composites, with almost $250 million raised to date.
It's been proven that email marketing is a great way for manufacturing companies to display their products and services to their customers, distributors, and potential clients.
First time baby-boomer buyers have led the charge in purchasing manufacturing companies, winning the acquisition over private equity and strategic competition. Interestingly, many times these new manufacturing acquirers are from non-manufacturing sectors.
Ultimately, the role of procurement and supply chain management will help businesses maximize profits. This is done by balancing cost reduction, supplier quality, assurance of supply and increasingly unlocking supplier innovation.
This year we wanted to go a layer deeper and explore the potential that additive technology could have on the brewing and beverage industry.
Based in Nanjing, the factory uses Geek+' robots, AI algorithms and other automated solutions to manufacture new Geek+ robots. 100% of the Company's robots are produced by the factory, a testament to performance and strength of the solution.
Despite the fact that many commercial enterprises are already leveraging new technologies like virtual-and augmented reality (AR)-to unlock productivity and growth, this technology has yet to reach widespread adoption across the manufacturing sector.
To be able to compete with other manufacturers in this area, the factory needs technological advancement and constant evolution of the production process.
Q&A with Ravi Kunju, Altair: Digital twins offer designers the opportunity to analyze the impact of operational conditions without requiring the production of a prototype until much further along in the manufacturing process when mfg's have a greater certainty of success.
Q&A with Ronald Valenzuela, Engineering Manager, KHK Gears: As technology advances, we have seen a shift into using much finer pitch gearing. We have certainly come across more exotic gear designs in the Mechatronics field that require a much smaller design..
Although 2011 is considered the unofficial start of the fourth industrial revolution, U.S. manufacturers have reported zero average growth in labor productivity over the past five years - despite continual improvements in equipment, software and management approaches.
