Teflon and other functional coatings from an experienced applicator can solve design problems including excessive wear, sticking, noise and corrosion.
It is vital for manufacturers not to give away what they are best at, to some third-party contract manufacturing firm and compromise the quality and the experience promise that clients expect. The cost equation that's bothering these manufacturers, however, can be solved by shedding the non-core design tasks while retaining back the control in manufacturing.
Automation is worthwhile particularly when there are large amounts of data, the tasks are repetitive or certain data is already available electronically in databases or other systems.
So how can you improve the value stream while reducing wasted time and money to incorporate lean manufacturing principles? The answer lies in one word: Automation.
OEMs turn to custom formulators to solve complex adhesion problems with laminated coil and sheet metals.

You need a new way of thinking, you need different training, you need different machines. This whole ecosystem is quite different from how we did things before.
Traditionally, raw materials and inventory of finished goods were considered assets. This notion has changed because of JIT and now inventory is considered as waste or dead investment, incurring additional costs.
Strong authentication of all devices within an IIoT network is one of the fundamental requirements for securing these networks.
Although it's still in an evolutionary state, big data is already showing tremendous potential across nearly all industries, professions and applications.
Every single product we manufacture from shafts, heads, shoulder pads and gloves at some point had gone through the 3D printing process.
Industry 4.0 has been called the 'Fourth industrial Revolution', but unlike the first three, this revolution will be implemented at all sizes of manufacturing operations, not just large-scale corporate ones.
Overall, the benefits of virtual simulation outweigh traditional design methods on numerous levels, enabling product design timescales to be met more efficiently, and ultimately in a way that helps companies to innovate and grow.
Your Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system needs to move at the speed of your business.
One can only imagine where camera technology is heading if autonomous cars and smart fridges are becoming the new norm. What about imaging systems in your clothes, on your skin or on your pets? It's all in the realm of possibility.
Instead of viewing 3D printing as a replacement to the standard process of CNC machining, those who have successfully merged the two technologies view additive manufacturing as a process that can complement their current operations.
