Sydney Baum-Haines for Minnesota Daily: The method has the potential to print tactile sensors onto prosthetic limbs or surgical robots.
This technology can be used to fabricate microstructures with outstanding mechanical properties, which have promising potential uses in implants and other biomedical applications.
In response to consumer demand and competitive pressures, product variation is on the rise. That variation changes the manufacturing calculus somewhat, as the required variation and corresponding complexity means that the ability to think critically and independently and adjust to changing circumstances is a priority.
Designing the optimal material handling systems requires a deep understanding of the product, process, and challenges inherent in the manufacturing process.
While OCT is widely utilized in other industries, its use in 3D printing is a new concept. Axsun has added OCT imaging capabilities to the printhead of industrial 3D printers to enable real-time, high-resolution scanning of each layer as it is being deposited.
Michael Molitch-Hou for Engineering.com: Between the worlds of CNC machining and additive manufacturing (AM), there lies a bridge technology referred to as hybrid manufacturing
Unsupervised Machine Learning is much more cost effective than Supervised Machine Learning because the algorithm does not need blueprints or understanding of the physical process to "learn" the behavior of the asset.
Measuring the number of perfect picks, volume of picks, savings by replacing traditional RF guns are data points that allow 3PLs (third party logistics) to quantify both a rapid ROI (return on investment) and TCO (total cost of ownership)
Often described as a building block of the 'Digital Industrial Revolution', a smart factory makes use of digital technologies including the Internet-of-Things, Big Data Analytics, Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Robotics to increase productivity, quality and flexibility.
New Evaluation System Will Help Answer Manufacturing Industry Question
John Biggs for TechCrunch: The Blackbelt Kickstarter will launch in three days and you can expect the system to cost about 9,500 for a desktop system or 12,500 euro for a larger system with standing supports.
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.
Hermann Simon for Harvard Business Review: Only about 1.1% of the world population is German. However, 48% of the mid-sized world market leaders come from Germany.
As automated production kicks in and increases the quantity of finished products, has the manufacturer considered the just in time inventory requirement changes necessary to meet production deadlines?
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.
