The Big Challenges of 3D Printing

With all of the benefits of 3D printing, you'd think it would be as commonplace as Wi-Fi in today's world - but that's actually not the case. Many companies are struggling to find ways to incorporate 3D technology printing into their product development and manufacturing operations.

Nanotechnology and the future of manufacturing

Nanotechnology involves the manipulation of matter on the atomic and molecular scale - structures between one and 100 nanometres in size. To put that into perspective, comparing a nanometre to a metre is like comparing the size of a marble to the size of the earth. Here Mark Howard, US country manager at automation parts supplier, EU Automation discusses three exciting applications of nanotechnology in manufacturing.

Industrial IoT Spending Skyrockets As Manufacturing Sector Braces for Change

The promise of greatly enhanced productivity is leading manufacturers to embrace smarter, autonomous IoT-based systems. Choice IOT's Darren Sadana points out the importance of building these new capabilities on a stable infrastructure.

How Robotics Has Helped The Manufacturing Industry

Few industries have been impacted more by the advent of robotics than the manufacturing industry. In fact, the manufacturing industry was one of the first to implement robotics all the way back in 1961. Since then, science-fiction has become a normal part of life. Let's take a look at how robotics has become an indispensable asset to the manufacturing industry.

The Right Choice 40 Years Ago. The Right Choice for the Next 40 Years

By working with Leslie Controls, a customer protected their original investment and was able to work through the plant re-certification process cost-effectively

How to convert a 3D Printer to a Laser Cutter

You can not only use your 3d printer for printing, but it is also an XYZ motion platform. By attaching a laser to the extruder, for example, you can easily convert your 3d printer to a laser engraver or even cutter.

The STEM employment gap

The UK has the lowest percentage of female engineer professionals in Europe, with countries such as Cyprus having nearly three times as many women in similar roles. This article will focus on women's relationship with the STEM and manufacturing industries.

Advance the Manufacturing of Tomorrow by Investing in the Workforce of Today

If manufacturers don't find a way to develop the current workforce and arm employees with the skills needed to work in modern manufacturing plants, it's anticipated that more than two million jobs will go unfilled.

Time to fight corrosion - for the environment's sake

Innovative premium high-strength and high-performance stainless steel fasteners offer significant benefits - from product and asset infrastructure maintenance to total lifecycle costs - in many global industry sectors.

The push and pull of composite manufacturing

For many manufacturers, the benefits of composite materials are still being discovered. Combining the strength of glass or carbon fiber with the adaptability of a resin system that can be tailor made and cost-efficient to suit your exact technical requirements.

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
