The Potential of Polymer 3D Printing - Exploring Advanced Manufacturing Processes and Bearing Design
3D printing has evolved significantly over recent years, with much of the research effort placed in the materials science field. This has enabled the development of a whole range of high-performance polymers with mechanical characteristics similar to those of metal.
Forward, Toward a New Normal - A transitional playbook for resuming manufacturing operations in the [hopefully soon to be post] Covid-19 Era
As companies and their workforces emerge from their forced coronavirus hiatus, a clear picture of a "new normal" for the manufacturing business and its employees remains elusive, with only hazy possibilities and vague pathways forward.
Getting everything you can out of your technology and processes has never been more critical. In supply chain management and logistics, there is a new way to streamline your operations.
Injection timing is a critical variable in combustion engines. From tinkerers squeezing every bit of horsepower out of their ride to engineers seeking fuel efficiency breakthroughs, making adjustments here affects the entire engine system.
Metal additive manufacturing currently services high-value industries, most of the printers sold are powder bed fusion and can cost over $1m with expensive powder feedstocks.
Successful use of Carbon-composite Windform® XT 2.0 and professional 3D printing in the construction of 1P PocketQubes flight-ready
It is the first time that entire PocketQube functional prototypes flight-ready are manufactured using a Carbon-reinforced composite material - Windform® XT 2.0 - and Laser Sintering process.
When looking at metrology, general discussion often revolves around the relative merits of contact or non-contact measurement solutions. There is now a drive across nearly all industries for smaller and more complex components.
In spite of advancing digitalization, the following still applies: Manual workstations are indispensable, because automation is not always profitable with small batch quantities or complex processes.
Most organizations are in a constant state of change as they respond to increasing customer demands, technological advancements and the fast-moving business environment of today. This means that systems and strategies must continuously evolve to remain competitive.
Accelerating Manufacturers' Digital Transformation through a Free Peer-to-Peer Learning & Networking Virtual Event
Internet of Manufacturing, the premier conference series for industry 4.0 leaders, announces that its 2020 event goes virtual from September 28 - 30.
There are many reasons why 3D printing may be suitable for your hardware design and development cycle. But what about using 3D printing for full-scale production? Here are some considerations when deciding whether to use 3D printing for high-volume, end-use custom parts.
Linux has a lot to offer the automation industry. It is a stable and scalable alternative to Windows operating systems that allows for arguably greater connectivity between devices and systems.
COVID-19 is still a problem, but with a little luck and a lot of hope, industries are close to reopening. While we see a break in the clouds, no one is quite sure what the road to recovery really means.
Reshoring holds great potential for companies to gain increased flexibility and responsiveness when facing supply chain disruption. During COVID-19, we saw companies forced to fly to China to pick up specific parts.
"Many manufacturing processes have interchangeable tooling in their machines. These tools require pneumatic, hydraulic, chemical, or electrical connections to operate. Instead of connecting individual connections one at a time, they can be connected at the same time."
