How to specify an electric linear actuator that's industrial strength

When it comes to linear actuators, the housing, fasteners, rod, gasket and seals need to have the required corrosion resistance in order for the actuator to withstand the environment.

Interview with with Josiah Haas, President of Bud Industries, Inc.

Our enclosures protect electronic and electrical components in many different markets. When we customize them to fit the specific requests it streamlines their supply chain.

GE Is Building The World's Largest 'Additive' Machine For 3D Printing Metals

The production version, still to be named, will extend the third dimension to a meter. GE Additive said the machine's "build geometry will be customizable and scalable for an individual customer's project. Its feature resolution and build-rate speeds will equal or better today's additive machines."

The Next Phase in Industrial Dust Explosion Protection

Among its directives, NFPA 652 outlines deadlines for sampling and analysis to identify potential risk areas for dust explosions in industrial facilities. Spotlight now turns to mitigation equipment.

The Role of Big Data in Industrial Manufacturers' Growth

The world of industry has been steadily advancing since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, and this new move toward data-driven manufacturing strategy is simply the next step in revolutionizing the industry.

The Aerospace Industry Is Likely to Solve 3-D Printing Problems

The marriage of 3-D printing and the aerospace industry is a shining example of a relationship that's mutually beneficial. While it was the innovations of top aerospace manufacturers that ultimately led to today's interest in 3-D printing, it's these same designers and engineers who are now pushing the limits of current technology.

Solving Engineering Challenges with Teflon

Teflon and other functional coatings from an experienced applicator can solve design problems including excessive wear, sticking, noise and corrosion.

Kiosk Manufacturers Should Partner for CAD Design Support and Not for Manufacturing

It is vital for manufacturers not to give away what they are best at, to some third-party contract manufacturing firm and compromise the quality and the experience promise that clients expect. The cost equation that's bothering these manufacturers, however, can be solved by shedding the non-core design tasks while retaining back the control in manufacturing.

Automated Engineering

Automation is worthwhile particularly when there are large amounts of data, the tasks are repetitive or certain data is already available electronically in databases or other systems.

Job Shop Manufacturing: Manual Material Transport Could Cost You $1m/year

So how can you improve the value stream while reducing wasted time and money to incorporate lean manufacturing principles? The answer lies in one word: Automation.

Custom Formulators Create a Better Bond with Laminated Coil

OEMs turn to custom formulators to solve complex adhesion problems with laminated coil and sheet metals.

Insights from the Factory Floor

Many companies have made significant investment in control systems that look at individual types of machines. But a single process may use many different machines that speak different languages and have different control requirements.

Enhancing Storage to Accommodate New Product Launch

Custom pushback rack improves storage density, safety at Hyundai Powertech

Why Smart Manufacturing Is Guaranteed to Need Industrial Robotics

By connecting manufacturing leaders with end-users, implementing machines that are able to maintain themselves and teaching current employees how to work with the new line of industrial robotics, proactive and tech-savvy manufacturers are in a position to revolutionize the way they do business from this point forward.

Fit To Print: See Firsthand How GE's Additive Business Is Changing The Way We Make Jet Engines, Jewelry And More

You need a new way of thinking, you need different training, you need different machines. This whole ecosystem is quite different from how we did things before.
