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.
The survey, based on 200 global businesses, indicates smart manufacturers achieve their status by achieving three key factors when planning and implementing pilot programs
Larger manufacturers have more resources, more capital and more ability to create economies of scale. That means that making it as a SMB manufacturer requires finding creative solutions that allow you to do more with less and create a leaner process.
The COVID-19 outbreak has highlighted the vulnerability of the complex global manufacturing supply chains. To make matters worse, the CNC industry heavily relies on on-time deliveries.
When attached to shipment containers, the IoT affords manufacturers insight into what's happening at each point of the supply chain, thereby assuring their products reach their destinations in a safe and timely manner.
From challenging times comes opportunity, and British manufacturers must embrace this in order to navigate through the 'old norms' into the 'new now'. Below I explore the key trends emerging in the sector.
The first example of "Collaborative Industry" in the Italian ceramic manufacturing district has been set up with Ceramiche Mariner thanks to System Ceramics' Prime.
The complete digitalization of processes, the use of shared resources and the efficient management of data are fundamental elements for the development of a new industrial model designed for flexibility and sustainability.
Amidst massive uncertainty, one thing is crystal clear: business-as-usual is no longer an option. Now is the time when digitizing the factory floor becomes critical for survival.
Clayton & McKervey offers tips for business survival during COVID-19, including utilization of "rolling 13-week cash flow analysis"
The realities presented by the COVID-19 health crisis have businesses focused on survival. The most important step to take after ensuring the safety of the team is to protect the company's cash position to the degree that's possible.
RapidFit modular gaging and holding fixtures with 3D printed locators provide major benefits in vehicle manufacture.
Within the industrial world, leaders are defining their journey to autonomous manufacturing. Manufacturers are focusing on digitization strategies that will help to drive efficiency across their plants.
The analysis of the operating conditions improves maintenance and allows more precise predictions to be made on usage behaviour, wear and tear, and malfunctions using "big data" approaches - the availability of lift systems is thus optimized.
Addressing gaps, potential risks and islands of automation on a staged basis minimizes costly disruptions to operations and provides greater flexibility as equipment and data needs evolve over time
The concept of full automation could be daunting, especially considering the cost, time and disruption that go into building a brand new factory or warehouse - this just isn't a viable option for a large proportion of businesses.
