There is still much work to be done with regard to technological advancement and operational process before the 2016 trends peak, but there's no doubt that the manufacturing industry is evolving like never before.
Intel's Antony Neal-Graves has shared his initial thoughts on how the industrial landscape will evolve in 2017.
We find ourselves at a significant intersecting point in manufacturing history with growth and innovation driving manufacturing technology. 3D printing is about to change the world and manufacturers are capturing the moment.
Automotive manufacturers are seeking ways to simultaneously embrace big data, stay flexible, and continue to innovate ahead of fellow automakers and new competition from Silicon Valley.
The SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises), especially the parts manufacturing factories will swell with the success of the 3D printer.
In the face of increased global competitiveness, the pressure to innovate is on. Given this pressure and the industry's disappearing labor force, A&D executives are turning to automation to ensure the consistent productivity of their facilities.
Operators will soon be able to test and optimize the machine settings for the next product in line in the virtual world before they make the physical change-over.
We have demonstrated the ability to electrospin liquid CHS into silicon nanowires that when blended with carbon lead to performance comparable to that achieved by CVD grown silicon nanowires but at reduced cost and simplified scaling.
All these companies are logistics and material handling vendors and times are changing in logistics and fulfillment
The Tesla factory in Fremont, California, and the Gigafactory in Nevada are monuments to science and progress.
Process and device will become inseparable. This is the direction we're heading in and it is all powered by the capabilities of Industry 4.0.
The 3D printing field is expected to grow more than 14% annually to become an $8.4 billion industry by 2020
Understanding Permanent Marks and Methods for UDI Marking and Verification
Industry 4.0 capabilities enable flexible technologies to take the factory floor: self-driving vehicles offer flexibility, proactive planning, collaboration, and adaptive behaviours.
When it comes to 3D printing versus injection molding, the best production method for your parts will become clear when you can answer these questions regarding your desired quantity, quality and cost.

KINGSTAR Soft PLC - Replace Your PLC with an EtherCAT-enabled Soft PLC for Real-Time Motion Control and Machine Vision
The top machine builders are switching from proprietary hardware-based PLCs, like Allen-Bradley, TwinCAT, Mitsubishi and KEYENCE, to open standards-based EtherCAT-enabled software PLCs on IPCs. KINGSTAR provides a fully-featured and integrated software PLC based on an open and accessible RTOS. KINGSTAR Soft PLC also includes add-on or third-party components for motion control and machine vision that are managed by a rich user interface for C++ programmers and non-developers alike.
