The U.S. and China Invest Heavily in Industry 4.0 Technologies to be the World's Largest Manufacturer
The United States, the world's second largest manufacturer, with a 2017 industrial output reaching a record level of $2.2 trillion, will apply Industry 4.0 technologies to replace China as the world's largest manufacturer.
If manufacturers continue to make their processes more sustainable and consumers continue to support their environmental efforts, perhaps we'll one day live in a truly sustainable society.
Ben Coxworth for New Atlas: When items are printed using the new technology, they're made up of voxels that incorporate either red, yellow or blue light-sensitive dye. All of the voxels take on their colors when the object is exposed to ultraviolet light.
Optimizing R&D labs usually involves vendor collaboration and planning to provide required versatility.
Kristin Houser for Futurism: Today's desktop 3D printers are fairly limited in terms of capabilities. However, we could be just a couple of decades away from a world in which every home has a 3D printer, capable of producing almost anything we can imagine.
Chris Martin for Bloomberg Business Week: Even before Trump's tariffs, the U.S. panel maker underpriced Chinese rivals with a spray-on, energy-absorbing metal and largely automated factories.
While the entire fabrication industry is busy integrating IoT with their machines for data, machine to machine communication and intelligible foresight, let us not forget the place of origin for fabrication - concept designing and modeling in CAD
John Revill, Oliver Hirt for Reuters: "The last couple of years ABB was in the repair shop and now we are coming out. With political stability and digitalisation we have positive conditions and a better platform to participate in the upturn,"
Pneumatics has had different diagnostic features for some time. For example, we can sense today whether the power is too low or too high, or whether there is a short circuit in an I/O system which caused some sort of failure.
The use of secondary encoders on all of a robot's axes, as well as the use of linear encoders for positioning the robot relative to the workpiece, enables a level of accuracy at the tool center point
He Huifeng for South China Morning Post: Dongguan looks to become a smart manufacturing base focused on the emerging mainland market, banking on the rise of domestic tech brands and booming domestic consumption.
Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences: Given the modular nature of their ink designs, many different filler and matrix combinations can be implemented to tailor electrical, optical, or thermal properties of the printed objects.
New manufacturing technology and the move to digital is being embraced globally, because manufacturers realize this is necessary to survive, and thrive.
Multiple axis welding positioners are being implemented in many industries to reduce the footprint required to process and access parts, while minimizing the number of times a part must be manually moved.
Iona Bain for IG: D printing has been called the 'third industrial revolution' and it has a market that's expected to be worth $35 billion in 2020. That doesn't make 3D printing an easy target for investors. Here's our guide to investing in the sector.
