B2B buying habits have been evolving independent of the pandemic, and manufacturers must adopt strategies and technologies that also address the following ongoing trends.
The elements needed for space travel do not have to meet the high launch requirements, but can be tailored precisely to the mission requirements. The process is being researched on parabolic flights in zero gravity - supported by a uEye CP industrial camera from IDS.
Naveen Poonian, CEO of iBASEt shares 3 predictions for the manufacturing industry for 2022. Expanded Competition for "Digital First" and Cloud Adoption leads to Improved Analytics, better decision making and improved remote-first operations.
3D printing makes it possible to introduce different materials into production that offer a lower embodied energy. In many applications, polymer or composite materials can offer the same strength and durability as metals.
KVM allows for the computers themselves to be relocated to a cloud or climate-controlled environment where they're free from noise, excessive heat, dust, etc.; also where they are more easily accessible by IT professionals.
Smart factories, in particular, could transform the automaking industry to reach its full potential. As the sector grows more competitive, manufacturers that embrace this trend early could see promising results.
Regardless of the industry, all manufacturing teams have one thing in common-mature software and equipment may support their core manufacturing processes, however, there is no such support for ancillary processes.
Bringing big changes to any plant takes a significant amount of thought and resources. Hence, it is better to follow a plan and move one step at a time to avoid any negative side-effects to production.
Does keeping an organized workplace really create a competitive advantage? DSI believe it does and here are the reasons why.
Rural manufacturing's comparative decline is multifaceted, but the solution may not be. One of the most impactful distinctions between today's most and least competitive manufacturers is access to reliable, high-speed internet.
3D printing technologies have been refined to such an extent that they are truly viable production technologies. Now the conversation among manufacturers is around the most judicious use of 3D printing for production.
Manufacturing is one of the largest industries in the world, with demand growing every day. The IoT provides countless opportunities for optimization, cost reduction, and improved performance.
The use of 3D printing technology to enable the fast availability of spare parts - when needed, where needed, in exactly the right quantity needed, is now, thanks to German company Replique, becoming a reality.
Transitioning to clean wind energy could become more cost-efficient as Purdue University researchers test a new technology created by an international startup to anchor offshore wind turbines.
