Though most manufacturers have long believed that people are maxed out, and when it comes to productivity, manual assembly lines are as optimized as possible, new technology is challenging that belief structure.
Metal finishing is a crucial process in many modern manufacturing operations. While the practice itself is by no means new, the industry has likely only scratched the surface of its potential.
Inventory issues can cause delays, limit productivity and generate unnecessary expenses. Manufacturing storage must improve if the industry is to become more efficient and resilient.
While a CNC user might employ various methods for data transfer, they can either be classified based on the type of data being transferred or the method of data transfer employed.
The Intel announcement is a recognition of the value of U.S.-based manufacturing, and the business will support a very long supply chain of semiconductor assembly tool designs and manufacturing in the U.S.
The most significant transformations are likely to happen in factories, where the differences between EV and ICE vehicles could reshape workflows and drastically reduce labor hours.
The U.S. has been seeing declines in skilled labor during the past few years as experienced and knowledgeable employees continue to retire while fewer are choosing employment in factories or skilled trades.
While errors are far less likely with CNC machines than manual processes, they can still happen. When they do, they can create bottlenecks, lead to waste and, if not caught, hamper client-customer relationships through poor-quality products.
As situations and equipment are constantly evolving based on consumer demand and market disruptions, manufacturers need to respond quickly to capitalize on new opportunities, and this requires agile reconfigurations that maintain a prioritization of worker safety.
Leveraging artificial intelligence (AI), the manufacturing industry can protect workers better and ensure that all employees wear gear to stay compliant with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) protocols to avoid costly penalties.
Automating the traceability process is essential for manufacturers who want to avoid production bottlenecks, reduce production costs, and improve the marking quality to meet OEM traceability requirements.
Everything from pandemic production pivots to Suez Canal blockages shows the unpredictability of supply and demand. Unanticipated impacts to manufacturing processes are imminent, but there are three key considerations to mitigate the impact on business operations:
Read this article to get insight into the ways food manufacturers can take to rise and shine by putting their business firmly on the road to recovery in 2021
When it comes to industrial and manufacturing design and engineering, here we speak about low paced movement from 2D drawings to 3D models which are definitely more informative, easy-to-use and more adaptable to changes.
In the time of lean manufacturing where almost no company is fully vertically integrated, companies simply cannot have defective parts show up at their doorstep or build in lag time to allow for additional inspections that could have otherwise been avoided.

Be sure to attend the latest of EXAIR's webinars. Get educated on pneumatic industrial vacuums so you can break the cycle of replacing electric shop vacuums. Industrial environments often present a continual battle to keep them clean and safe. Unavoidable by-products of manufacturing processes include liquid and solids which often present hazards to personnel, products and processes. Solids may be trim, dusts, or chips from a manufacturing line; liquids may be coolant spills, coating overspray, or even burst packages. Cleaning up these materials often falls on the operators of the equipment who need reliable, adaptable, safe and effective tools for cleanup. Supplying them with tools which fail frequently or do not meet the requirements of the safety team is a recipe for disaster. Attend this webinar to gain an understanding of how pneumatic vacuums can reduce the maintenance, increase reliability, and improve flexibility for your facility. Attend live on May 24th at 2 p.m.
