ManufacturingTomorrow.com talks Industry 4.0 with Bob Mayer President, IMSI/Design

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.

The Value of Virtual Simulation vs Traditional Methods

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.

Is your ERP Agile? 5 steps to ensure flexibility

Your Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system needs to move at the speed of your business.

Imaging Gets Personal: 4 surprising ways cameras are having an impact on our lives

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? Its all in the realm of possibility.

3D Printing and CNC Machining Industry Trends

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.

How to Tell Category Data Cables Apart

The category positively correlates with the data speed. I.E. the higher the category, the higher the possible frequency and the higher the frequency, the higher the possible data rate.

Gearmotors Thrive in Tough Corn Processing Application

The food production manufacturer previously used hydraulic motors to drive the conveyor system. However, the open environment of the application presented several mechanical issues for the motors.

Robot Monitoring and Preventive Maintenance Solution

A robots abnormal condition can be detected early via data comparison, so a high-speed equipment monitoring solution must be able to acquire analog signals at the rate of 1000 signals per second. Then the collected signals need to be delivered to the control room for monitoring management and data analysis.

Cost-effective WISE wireless solution for panel makers to quickly establish production line monitoring systems

Since the work in process (WIP) passes through the workstation every 3 to 5 seconds, the wireless module responsible for collecting data must provide sufficient speed to acquire signals (accurate to 0.1 seconds).

The Value of Cloud Based Slicing and File Management for 3d Printing

Cloud based systems lead the way to more agile development - with simplified collaboration, decrease product development time by working together.

Solving Complex Adhesion Problems with Plasma

When traditional chemical adhesives fail to sufficiently bond dissimilar types of materials, engineers often turn to plasma treatments to solve complex adhesion problems.

Manufacturers Achieve Safety and Employee Engagement of Spanish Speaking Workers

Through multi-lingual training, manufacturers achieve target goals and obtain the best results.

Revolutionizing the IIoT Industry One Streetlight at a Time

IEEE Spectrum: When Zimmerman recognized that a light pole could potentially solve all three of those challenges, the idea for Kairo began to take form. Over several months, Ubicquia designed and built a wide range of microcontroller boards featuring a variety of sensors and actuators that could be housed in a form factor no larger than a soda can.

Computer-aided Engineering: The Future Is Now
