A lot has already been said about Smart Manufacturing. In the end, it's a good starting point to assess where you and your manufacturing organization are today. What have you done, what should your next steps be?
Recognizing the need for connectivity, data access, and scalability, executives at HIROTEC worked to develop a competitive strategy to capitalize on the potential benefits of the Internet of Things (IoT).
Training Tomorrow's Manufacturing Leaders: an Inside Look at McKinsey's North American Digital Capability Center (DCC)
The DCC is a unique learning center where companies' leaders and their workforces participate in hands-on, next-gen digital manufacturing workshops. This helps them advance their business operations, design and productivity, and prepare for tomorrow's jobs.
Stuart Nathan for The Engineer: Like several concepts in mobile additive manufacture, the Spider bots grew out of a concept to build bases for exploration on the Moon and other planets.
Kagan Pittman for Engineering.com: The robot combo has been tasked with automating a black oxide process, which involves dipping parts in various chemical baths in a precise sequence.
By AlleyWatch: Voodoo Manufacturing is a software-enabled 3D printing factory that works with major brands to produce high-quality products, prototypes and parts at scale.
JP Buntinx for The Merkle: The Printrbelt prints objects on the belt and then moves down the Z axis to get the object onto the surface below
Ultrasonic manipulation uses ultrasonic waves for handling of a wide range of components and materials, which potentially enables the creation of a more versatile 3D printers. Because of the non-contact nature of ultrasonic manipulation, particles and components with very different mechanical properties and shapes can be handled with a single ultrasonic manipulator.
Management might not think that it could happen, but too much growth can overwhelm a manufacturer, as the business breaks down under the stress of expansion. Growth is good, but slow growth is best.
Education should look to influence the future. If we provide students with technologies that are able to make seemingly impossible objects, we give them the potential to influence the future with a greater impact.
"GE Additive and Oerlikon both understand the transformative power of additive manufacturing"
John Schmid , Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: Does Wisconsin have the deep reserves of digital-age systems engineers who are coveted in the new manufacturing economy
DesignBoom.com: Built using a two-meter high construction robot, the machine works by moving autonomously on caterpillar tracks.
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.
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.

Sierra Instruments announces the launch of its new flow energy solution for managing and optimizing flow measurement for industrial facilities of all sizes. It features Sierra's QuadraTherm 640i/780i thermal flow meters, their InnovaMass 240i/241i vortex flow meters, and their new InnovaSonic 207i ultrasonic flow meter. Designed, built, and calibrated in the USA by Sierra, the Big-3TM share the same revolutionary Raptor firmware and many of the same software apps. They are a complete flow energy solution for flows like compressed air, natural gas, steam, and hot and chilled water. Together, they set a new standard in ease-of-purchase, performance, accuracy, reliability, and ease of use.
