More Mistakes That Manufacturers Make

Last year, I wrote about the Common Mistakes That Growing Manufacturers Make (June 2017). Well, here are a few more examples of how manufacturers can avoid serious problems and reduce risks, costs, and streamline their business processes.

Using Direct Current with Inverter Technology Reduces Costs and Improves Control

Resistance welding with direct current (DC) using inverter technology reduces costs by improving quality, reducing maintenance, and increasing productivity.

Axiomtek and FANUC America Case Study: Machining Simulator

The main purpose of the Machining Simulator is to promote learning about manufacturing in a classroom setting. Each simulator reacts exactly like a real machine and allows students to design, create CAD/CAM models and command the machine tool to produce simulated end product

Extending the Life and Improving the Performance of Plastic Injection Molds

Coating mold components like ejector guide elements, cores, lifts and cavities increases the lifespan of molds while reducing maintenance and running costs.

Digital Transformation for the Service Enterprise

The Digital Revolution has already disrupted media, finance, consumer products, healthcare, and other sectors. Manufacturing leaders can't (and shouldn't) escape it.

Why Conventional Planning Fails

This bimodal distribution is rampant throughout industry. It can be very simply described as "too much of the wrong and too little of the right" at any point in time and "too much in total" over time.

Renishaw Reduces Machining Time for Aerospace Impeller Manufacturer

If the workpiece datum of a finished part is off-centre, the impeller must be submitted for design analysis, in which a designer reviews the component and decides whether it can be used. Each analysis costs approximately $66,900 per part

KOMET GROUP Innovates Cutting Tools Using Metal 3D Printing Technology

As well as allowing special cutters to be produced more quickly, the use of additive manufacturing enables more complex shapes to be generated, both for the external shape of the tooling and for the internal cooling channels.

Six Things You Should Know About Laser Alignment

Laser alignment technology has been around for some time, but you may still be surprised at the scale and scope of the benefits that these systems deliver.

Planar Honing: Producing a Fine Finish on Flat Surfaces

Somewhat resembling a spinning bottlebrush, this tool is characterized by abrasive globules that are permanently mounted to flexible filaments that are attached to a center shaft.

Manufacturing Automation & SCADA

A popular definition of SCADA is a control system architecture that uses PC's, networked data communications and human machine interfaces for higher level process supervisory management

Partnership for China 2025: RISONG and CENIT

China has long since ceased to be the "workbench of the world". In the manufacturing industry, rising wages and the "China 2025" development program are constantly accelerating the demand for automation solutions.

5 Ways Robotics Are Being Used in Smart Manufacturing

Like it or not, robots aren't leaving the manufacturing industry any time soon. In reality, manufacturers will use more robots as the technology continues to enter the mainstream.

McKinsey Maps 400+ AI Use Cases; Finds Trillions in Potential Value

Application of advanced AI (defined as deep learning models) in manufacturing and supply chain have the potential to create $1.2-2 Trillion in annual economic value.
