HPC Trends - Why the CFD Community Must Be 'Proactive' Not Reactive

In this article, we look at ways in which the world of HPC (High-performance computing) is approaching the latest disruptions and trends, and how the world of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) must match this proactive rather than reactive stance.

Field Logic Controllers (FLCs) expand control options for industrial environments

FLCs can be used in standalone applications or as a way to expand I/O without adding more I/O points to a PLC.

Technological Trends and Practical Examples of the Fourth Industrial Revolution

Demands for greater variety, lower cost, improved quality, and smaller batch sizes can turn a prosperous production into a fading one. Fully automated production cells can resolve the issue.

Red Lion Case Study: Blizzard Ski

In addition to production metrics, manufacturing equipment statuses are also displayed. Operators or maintenance workers can quickly see and react if a machine is operational, being resupplied or out of service based on the icons and colors associate to the equipment on the display.

Is Next-Shoring the New Frontier in Manufacturing?

Next shoring involves moving a companys production capacity to where the market for the goods is. For U.S. centered companies, serving American markets, this is the same as reshoring, as reshoring entails moving production capacity back to the U.S. to meet production demands in U.S. markets.

Additive Manufacturing Technology Enables Radical New Designs

Additive manufacturing represents a seachange for the manufacturing sector. In many cases, 3D printing has resulted in an immediate, cost-effective solution to an issue. More importantly, it has resulted in a complete re-engineering of parts, so that they are now better suited for the dedicated function they are intended to serve.

Wind River's AXON Predict Analytics for VxWorks Enables IoT Analytics at the Edge

What do I want to eat yesterday? Seems like a strange question. Yet IoT systems are architected to often ask very similar questions by aggregating a massive amount of data in a central repository where every so often a data scientist can evaluate and perhaps realize some insights that would have been best realized and responded to at the time the events were taking place at the edge.

You Need to Implement the IIoT Before It's Too Late

Ease of access, improved productivity and automated decision-making are amongst the primary benefits of the IIoT. Those who hesitate are bound to suffer serious setbacks in output, customer service and overall competitiveness in the comings months and years.

PACK EXPO Q&A with Mitsubishi Gas Chemical America

To meet consumer demands for authentic and fresh-tasting foods, some innovative packaging technologies are doing the job normally given to preservatives, enabling manufacturers to keep the ingredient list to a minimum.

What is IO-Link

IO-Link (IEC61131-9) is an open standard serial communication protocol that allows for the bi-directional exchange of data from sensors and devices that support IO-Link and are connected to a master.

Endress+Hauser's IIoT Vision

We currently offer telemetry devices and cloud based dashboards for our customers to collect process data from remote instrumentation and provide dashboards and operational efficiencies for supply chain management with our Supplycare service offering.

IIoT Monitoring Finally Included with AGVs

Too much data, little of which can be accessed and used effectively. From tuggers, AGCs (Automated Guided Carts), and AGVs, there is a real need to include IIoT monitoring.

Versatile Abrasive Tool for CNC Machining Decreases Cycle and Finishing Time

Flexible hone provides fine surface finish for internal bores, along with edge breaking of undercuts and deburring of intersecting drilled holes.

Is Small Design Flaw Robbing Manufacturers of Valuable Time and Productivity in Milling Operations?

Manufacturers are increasing productivity 15-20% by addressing a flaw in toolholder-retention knob design that affects precision and increases cycle time.

The Impact of the IoT Demystified

The IoT is more than a smart meter or the like. It is a complete new wave of automation that includes everything from omni-sensing to artificial intelligence, from smartphones to smart homes, and from smart industries to smart cities.
