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.

Smart Factories Need Space and Time Anchors

GIM International: Spatiotemporal referencing can be used to enhance contextualisation of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) data and information flows within 'smart' factories, according to Studio iSPACE in Austria.

The U.S. and China Invest Heavily in Industry 4.0 Technologies to be the World's Largest Manufacturer

The United States, the world's second largest manufacturer, with a 2017 industrial output reaching a record level of $2.2 trillion, will apply Industry 4.0 technologies to replace China as the world's largest manufacturer.

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.

3D-printed objects change color on demand

Ben Coxworth for New Atlas: When items are printed using the new technology, they're made up of voxels that incorporate either red, yellow or blue light-sensitive dye. All of the voxels take on their colors when the object is exposed to ultraviolet light.

Designing Microfabrication Lab Equipment with Research Flexibility in Mind

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

Here's What Life Will Be Like With 3D Printers That Can Create Anything

Kristin Houser for Futurism: Today's desktop 3D printers are fairly limited in terms of capabilities. However, we could be just a couple of decades away from a world in which every home has a 3D printer, capable of producing almost anything we can imagine.

First Solar Is Using Robots to Better Tap the Sun

Chris Martin for Bloomberg Business Week: Even before Trump's tariffs, the U.S. panel maker underpriced Chinese rivals with a spray-on, energy-absorbing metal and largely automated factories.

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

ABB is leaving the repair shop after transitional year - CEO

John Revill, Oliver Hirt for Reuters: "The last couple of years ABB was in the repair shop and now we are coming out. With political stability and digitalisation we have positive conditions and a better platform to participate in the upturn,"

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

Why China's hollowed-out manufacturing hub is pinning its hopes on a hi-tech revival

He Huifeng for South China Morning Post: Dongguan looks to become a smart manufacturing base focused on the emerging mainland market, banking on the rise of domestic tech brands and booming domestic consumption.

Novel 3D printing technique yields high-performance composites

Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences: Given the modular nature of their ink designs, many different filler and matrix combinations can be implemented to tailor electrical, optical, or thermal properties of the printed objects.

Safety Air Guns use engineered air nozzles for high performance!

Safety Air Guns use engineered air nozzles for high performance!

Inexpensive air guns are sold through many catalogs and industrial supply companies. Most have triggers or other parts that break quickly. Their performance is similar to open pipe, where they simply blow a lot of compressed air. In addition to the high air consumption, many produce noise levels that violate OSHA requirements. Some even generate dangerous dead end pressures that can result in serious or fatal injuries if blocked. EXAIR's Safety Air Guns eliminate these problems.. Airflow that exits the nozzle cannot be blocked, as required by OSHA standard 1910.242(b). The VariBlast, Soft Grip, Heavy Duty and Super Blast Safety Air Guns are available with a variety of air nozzles. Stainless steel air nozzles provide more mechanical wear resistance while withstanding corrosion and high temperatures.
