Robot welding: More efficiency for programming and equipment fabrication

Crown relies on FASTSUITE Edition 2 for offline programming of robotic welding cells.

Manufacturing Transportation and Logistics 101

Perhaps more than any other industry, manufacturing logistics requires a fluid and flexible model. Manufacturers-and, consequently, their transportation and logistics partners-need to be flexible enough to respond to sudden fluctuations in the marketplace.

Injection Molding Design & Process Optimization

This approach is superior to standard molding procedures because of the high level of scientific control utilized through upfront Design of Experiments (DoE), flow analysis, process monitoring, and quality control that can quickly detect and correct any process variations.

The Benefits of Lean Manufacturing

Some of the challenges that manufacturers face to accomplish lean manufacturing are introducing a manufacturing cost reduction model; the optimization of material and product flow; site planning and expansion; the design of a risk management system

Hand Loads: Cost Effective Solutions for Complex Plastic Parts

It's important to note that hand loads require extra labor for installation and removal. While this may skew the cost/benefit analysis, it may also be the only way to meet the customer's needs.

IDC Manufacturing Insights

It's clear that the manufacturing industry is transforming, and although automation may be reducing the need for some tasks, overall we do expect the manufacturing industry and employment to increase. 2018 is shaping up to be a good year for manufacturers.

How Green Has Manufacturing Become Over the Years?

If manufacturers continue to make their processes more sustainable and consumers continue to support their environmental efforts, perhaps we'll one day live in a truly sustainable society.

Designing Microfabrication Lab Equipment with Research Flexibility in Mind

Optimizing R&D labs usually involves vendor collaboration and planning to provide required versatility.

CAD Essentials for Fabrication at the Tipping Point of Industry 4.0

While the entire fabrication industry is busy integrating IoT with their machines for data, machine to machine communication and intelligible foresight, let us not forget the place of origin for fabrication - concept designing and modeling in CAD

Pneumatics and the Internet of Things: What's Holding Us Back?

Pneumatics has had different diagnostic features for some time. For example, we can sense today whether the power is too low or too high, or whether there is a short circuit in an I/O system which caused some sort of failure.

Industrial Robots: Encoders for Tool Center Point Accuracy

The use of secondary encoders on all of a robot's axes, as well as the use of linear encoders for positioning the robot relative to the workpiece, enables a level of accuracy at the tool center point

2018 Predictions for Manufacturing Product & Service Innovation

New manufacturing technology and the move to digital is being embraced globally, because manufacturers realize this is necessary to survive, and thrive.

Improve Part Quality With Multi-axis Welding Positioners

Multiple axis welding positioners are being implemented in many industries to reduce the footprint required to process and access parts, while minimizing the number of times a part must be manually moved.

Designing Safe Pneumatic Circuits

Pneumatic circuits can be safe when carefully examined and implemented. The designers can use the appropriate level of reliability based on their assessment of the risk and frequency of the potential risk.

APIs for the Modern Factory Floor

The modern factory floor relies on APIs because the technology allows manufacturers to effectively track and oversee every step of the value chain from start to finish. It also helps ensure machinery is working efficiently.

FASTSUITE - Focus on efficiency in Digital Factory

FASTSUITE - Focus on efficiency in Digital Factory

With two product lines, FASTSUITE for V5, which is seamlessly integrated with CATIA/DELMIA V5, and FASTSUITE Edition 2, a standalone platform, the areas of OLP (offline programming), manufacturing simulation and virtual commissioning are the core of our business activities. Our applications and solutions are not only focused on real customer needs, but they are also designed to improve efficiency and quality of our customers' manufacturing processes. No matter if the process is just about offline programming of a single robot at a small job-shop company or about the validation of a complete production line at an Automotive or Aerospace OEM. We strive to ensure a constant quality of our services and to provide the best possible support to our worldwide customers. Therefore we have established three digital manufacturing hubs around the world. All our teams have a proven expertise on manufacturing process integration and profound IT implementation skills.
