In absence of Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES), reporting is purely historical and is often available too late to take action on its findings. MES enables non-conformances to be addressed in the present and minimize their potential impact.
Offline Programming Software is Single Solution for Robotic Hammer Peening of Automotive Stamping Dies
Total programming time for one workpiece, including the time to import a CAD file and create a toolpath, was reduced from 12 hours to only 3.5 hours.
The overall goal of these 2018 trends appears to lead the marketplace to reduce complexity and cost and justify the cost of automated systems and robotics. With lower cost, robotics will become more economical, even for smaller companies looking to become more competitive.
Adi Gaskell for Forbes: Such a network ensures you not only have the technological skills required but also the cultural and softer factors that are so important.
2017 - Most Popular Article - Simply put, "old line" manufacturing is gone, and in its place is a new world of computer-assisted, complex factories, in which it's no longer enough to have a great work ethic, physical stamina, and the ability to follow orders.
Dave Pinter for PSFK: The process works with the robot arm dispensing a stream of silicone into a tank of clear gel, the consistence of which isn't too far off from hair gel. The technique allows for object with internal volumes to be printed without extra internal support.
One of the main tenets of Industry 4.0 is data collection. Machine tools will have sensors that will collect many different kinds of data, including data on how much the machine has operated, the conditions it has operated in and the condition of the components of the tool.
Jacquelyn Cheok for Business Times: Smarc, a 6,000 sq ft facility, allows engineers to design, experiment and implement solutions to improve HP's manufacturing processes. The target is to boost productivity by at least 20 per cent.
In just the last 12-18 months, the culture and consequences of opioid drug use has supplanted internal theft, sexual harassment and other issues, emerging as the primary focus of most of the internal undercover investigations for manufacturing clients.
Huawei Wireless X Labs Sets up Connected Factory SIG to Explore 5G Applications in Smart Manufacturing
The Wireless Connected Factory SIG has brought together partners in the field of smart manufacturing to conduct further research and promote extensive applications of 5G communication technologies in Industry 4.0.
Andrew Moore for Upstate Business Journal: The new partnership includes a program that aims to develop better manufacturing techniques for home appliances, foster public-private collaboration, and encourage more students to pursue advanced manufacturing as a career.
New powdered metal alloys and plastics are continuously in development. The safest bet for large manufacturers is to partner with material suppliers to ensure constant access to these new materials.
Sensors withstand extreme temperatures, pressures and aggressive chemicals.
Candace Roulo for SME: The grand opening featured 13 live robotic automation demonstrations, tours of the new TechCenter, and presentations on new technology.
