Supply chain visibility and diversification have become top priorities for manufacturers, retailers and logistic providers. Today, they are faced with challenges they never expected, but - luckily - they are using new technologies to solve them.
New Orders and Production Growing; Employment Contracting; Supplier Deliveries Slowing at Faster Rate; Backlog Growing; Raw Materials Inventories Contracting; Customers' Inventories Too Low; Prices Increasing; Exports and Imports Growing
When designing a motor control system, it is not always clear if a braking resistor is required and, if it is, how to proceed in selecting a braking resistor. This post is intended to simplify that process so it is clear when and how to select a braking resistor.
Automating packaging processes can improve productivity, quality and safety on site. Unsurprisingly then, it has become a crucial investment for packaging facilities. But, where do you start?
Precision industrial motion systems are used in test, assembly or laser micro-machining of high precision and high value components and in electronics, optics, and photonics manufacturing, to name a few.
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.
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.
Solutions for avoiding thermally induced dimensional deviations of workpieces have become more crucial than ever for the machine tool building industry. Thermal drift is primarily caused by feed axes on the basis of recirculating ball screws.
Packaging and labels contain key information on food products and drugs. A minor mistake on either could have serious repercussions that impact a product's safety, regulatory compliance and consumers' satisfaction.
As the coronavirus pandemic rages on, the government is taking steps toward protecting public health. On May 27, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced a $281 million investment in improving water and wastewater infrastructure.
When corporate objectives include rapidly and repeatedly adjusting prices at the most granular level, automation must be designed to alleviate the pain by using simple rules to derive prices.
Procurement Technology - What it Can and Cannot Replace in a Manufacturer's Journey Towards Supply Chain Resilience and Agility
This article reviews the key elements in supplier management for manufacturers and how Source-to-Pay procurement technology can support the journey towards supply chain resilience and agility in times of crisis.
Omron Helps Life Sciences Company Upgrade Prototype with Cutting-edge Technology and Cut Costs by 30% With Solution Using NX-I/O
Omron gave preference to EtherCAT over DeviceNet because the latter is a slower CAN-based protocol designed for sensors and it uses screw-type connections that can be difficult to install and maintain.
The common vulnerability scoring system (CVSS) provides manufacturers a way to assess the principal characteristics of a vulnerability and produce a numerical score reflecting its severity.
Camera Specs - Not the Frontier in the Era of AI - Autonomous Machine Vision (AMV) Offers a New Approach to Visual QA
Machine vision engineers are pushing the frontiers of camera specifications to offer solutions with incredible resolution. Yonatan Hyatt explains why Autonomous Machine Vision (AMV) is pushing the boundaries of artificial intelligence, not camera specifications.
