The new research and development campus will cover 35,000 m² and be home to a significant number of state-of-the-art facilities. Alongside ultra-modern R&D laboratories, which will develop and test new automation technologies
Steel mills are rich in data, and learning algorithms only get better as they learn. Steel mill owners stand to improve their quality and margins dramatically from AI investment. AI can also reveal unexpected business opportunities as well as operational efficiencies.
Despite its effectiveness, plasma treatments for surface modification and chemical deposition remain less than fully understood. So, too, are the tool selection choices. For this, vendors work with customers to select equipment and help justify the ROI
With the IoT, every electric motor on a factory floor is equipped with one or multiple sensors that are connected (preferably wirelessly) to a control database that continuously collects data about the motors.
Upcoming FIRST® Championship an opportunity for STEM-gifted young people to learn about potential career paths in automation
The International Society of Automation (ISA) and its umbrella organization, the Automation Federation (AF), actively support FIRST's educational programs and mission, and encourage more young people to pursue careers that fully utilize their STEM skills and interests.
The productive manufacturers of the future will be those who can adjust to the advanced change in sourcing, production and distribution, and are responsive and adaptable enough to take advantage of new logistical technologies.
High Speed Machining is more than just an interesting idea with a compelling past. The science is out, and the debate is over, implementing High Speed Machining Techniques is a sound economic decision, that decreases costs while increasing productivity and efficiency.
"The startups that have made it to the final competition are indicative of the levels of innovation in the machine vision and imaging industries," according to Jeff Burnstein, President, AIA. "I don't envy the job in front of our judges having to select only one winner."
The food manufacturing industry stands apart due to its continual reliance on people. No matter how much automation exists in a plant, people still need to oversee things. Employees will not become obsolete with the introduction of IIoT.
Every company is concerned about quality, but leading companies are leveraging automated systems and IoT data to test their products and improve quality at a new level. Leaders in this industry include Tesla, Raymond, and Daimler Trucks.
Sensai's augmented productivity platform is a holistic enterprise system that combines human- and tech-based solutions, connecting, informing and using data-driven intelligence to cut costs by minimizing downtime and limiting defects.
The 2-piece Uni-Guide design eliminated the tedious assembly and alignment process previously needed, saving time and also making it an easy field retrofit for existing machines.
OEMs turn to one-stop metal parts shops that can transition to more cost-effective fabrication and machining techniques as demand increases.
The acatech Industry 4.0 Maturity Index provides companies a guideline for a structured approach. Apart from technological requirements, the digitalisation strategy must not disregard the adjustment of organisational structures and qualification of employees and must focus on IT security in all phases.
The market share is increasing and more production industries are acquiring 3D printing units. Subtractive manufacturing has been rendered less effective, but there are many industries that are reluctant to give up their old ways.
