As the workforce is vaccinated and reshoring the supply chain becomes a clarion call for industry, finding the right people with the right skills forces plant managers, operations managers, and HR managers to find new and innovative recruiting strategies.
One of the main trends previously predicted for 2021 is the accelerated adoption of turnkey solutions in additive manufacturing (AM). Moshe Molcho, CEO at LEO Lane, looks at how certain options can help OEMs adopt AM and examines the current offering of AM turnkey solutions.
Organisations are having to find new mechanisms that enable their teams to quickly create interactive documentation containing representations of their native 3D CAD data, that can easily be shared with non-CAD users, their customers and wider supply chains.
Here's some guidance on best practices for material handling and advice on the proper equipment to implement a material handling workflow at your facility.
When organizations invest in process optimization, experience has shown us that simpler changes have the best chance of being implemented in full and lasting for years.
The process splits materials at the molecular level under a non-contact process with tremendous speed resulting in no material loss, chips, lateral cracks, protrusions, hooks, and flares, or any other forms of contaminants.
Tackling Obsolescence With Additive Manufacturing - 3D Printed Spare Parts Is Revolutionizing Manufacturing
When obsolete components break, it can be hard to find like-for-like replacements. Managing obsolescence is therefore critical since the breakage or malfunction of obsolete components exposes the business to risk of costly downtime.
The elements needed for space travel do not have to meet the high launch requirements, but can be tailored precisely to the mission requirements. The process is being researched on parabolic flights in zero gravity - supported by a uEye CP industrial camera from IDS.
From a molding perspective, only the most experienced expert micro molding companies can successfully achieve the exacting tolerances that micro-optic components demand. Micro-optics require a unique processing knowledge - different from mechanical parts.
A challenge lies in that fact that every single smart device connected to the IoT generates huge amounts of data. All of this information must be processed and analyzed to successfully take advantage of the opportunities presented by Industry 4.0.
The entire face of team communications has changed, escalating the need for alternate ways to communicate with the growing mobile workforce. Internal and external communications are merging as businesses strive to reconnect with disconnected teams off-site.
With funding from the Tennessee Valley Authority, Watt Bar Utility District (WBUD) needed to streamline automation of its 32 tank and pump stations. System integrator Quality Controls LLC decided to use PLC, HMI, and SCADA products from CIMON to automate these facilities.
There are a number of ways to maintain industrial machinery. If you search around, you will most likely come across these terms: preventive maintenance and predictive maintenance.
Manufacturers of highly configurable products want to maximize engineering resources. By capturing knowledge and decision-making, the newest best-in-class engineering automation software speeds development of subsequent design iterations.
BIM brings together every minute detail of the asset in one place to ensure all stakeholders - whether they are at the office or on the construction site - have access to the same information. It illustrates the entire building lifecycle.
