A look at manufacturing and the COVID-19 pandemic shows the comparison to WWII is an apt one. From victory gardens to discussions of shared sacrifice to ramping up production of critical supplies, the parallels between the health crisis and WWII are hard to ignore.
According to an industry survey, the majority of food manufacturing companies are expecting to increase production. However, the same study suggested automation does not offer enough flexibility to fulfil an increase in production.
Within the realm of manufacturing, one thing is abundantly clear: supply chains are intrinsically tied and vulnerable to just about everything in our world today.
When the manufacturing industry emerges out of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will see the rapid trend of digitalization. However, to achieve maximum success - this will only happen if manufacturers finally deal with the challenge of data silos!
IMTS to continue to offer digital experiences to foster connections, networking and technical learning opportunities.
Using proven software and hardware, Siemens has developed a unique workplace distancing solution that helps manufacturers to simulate and manage employee exposure risks while enabling productivity throughout their facilities
The 3D printing industry has proven instrumental in the production of essential medical equipment ranging from face masks to ventilators.A key reason why additive manufacturing has been so effective during the pandemic: it doesn't rely on a global supply chain.
Using stacked model data, the technique can dramatically increase 3D printing output, assisting in producing face shields for healthcare workers fighting COVID-19.
While most analysis of the IoT is in respect of its positive influence on manufacturing processes, the growth in the IoT also opens up huge possibilities for micro molding as there is burgeoning demand for a variety of new and innovative micro devices.

-Unique unroll/reroll function in Geomagic® Design X enables a new modeling workflow for complex revolved parts resulting in a 94% efficiency improvement. -Geomagic Design X's new features for hybrid surfacing workflows accelerate productivity, improve downstream CAD re-usability
Whether it is because they are switching production from clothing to personal protective equipment (PPE) or because their regular suppliers are suddenly unavailable, many procurement teams are now searching for new suppliers under significant time pressure.
Precision Beryllium mirror manufacturer, Cambridge Technology, explains how the use of best-in-class interferometry hardware and software solutions has streamlined its manufacturing processes and added efficiencies as well as time and cost-savings across the company.
You can find plenty of general health guidelines, but you need to know actionable specifics. OSHA released a list of safety measures for manufacturers, but it doesn't go into much detail.
The survey, based on 200 global businesses, indicates smart manufacturers achieve their status by achieving three key factors when planning and implementing pilot programs
The growing need for developing complex and high-quality components while keeping the manufacturing costs low is a primary factor driving the demand for the 3D printing solutions in the automotive sector.
