As situations and equipment are constantly evolving based on consumer demand and market disruptions, manufacturers need to respond quickly to capitalize on new opportunities, and this requires agile reconfigurations that maintain a prioritization of worker safety.
Given the advanced state of anthropogenic climate change and widespread awareness of its human impact, it's time for manufacturing to adopt carbon offsetting practices.
Those manufacturers that digitize their operations will gain significant advantages, and those that don't will have a more difficult time catching up.
The process of creating a digital transformation roadmap in manufacturing can look very different for each organization. It very much depends on where exactly the company stands in its digital journey.
The company's unique objectives required PSbyM to modify its own processes for the six-month engagement. First, a far more detailed assessment of operations was completed by practitioners, including focus groups and deep dives into equipment-design elements.
Obsolescence is the natural consequence of continuous advances in technology. As such, it is impossible to eliminate it completely. However, it is possible to manage it strategically to minimize its negative impact on your business.
Leveraging artificial intelligence (AI), the manufacturing industry can protect workers better and ensure that all employees wear gear to stay compliant with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) protocols to avoid costly penalties.
The direct influence of a workforce in determining an organization's purpose can be as much, and, sometimes even more of a reason for an individual to enthusiastically and wholeheartedly work at a company as the financial compensation they receive.
With more and more data comes the need for storage and fast access which means that technology like DDR5 has never been more important.
Often robots have enough mass, speed, and inertia that any contact with humans creates the primary hazard; process driven hazards, for example sparks/splatter and UV light in a robotic welding process becomes the secondary hazard.
B2B buying habits have been evolving independent of the pandemic, and manufacturers must adopt strategies and technologies that also address the following ongoing trends.
Spectacular failures tend to attract much attention. It is simple curiosity as to why it happened and why something was not done to prevent it. One such event was the engine fire on a Boeing 777 flight over Denver in February 2021.
Overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) has been a leading manufacturing performance metric for decades. As Industry 4.0 has taken off, manufacturers now have a range of new tools and techniques that can improve their OEE scores.
The benefits of DNC software when it comes to managing your CNC programs, machine parameters, and offsets are well known. As a result, many businesses look to offer some form of DNC software or their own, ranging from thousands of dollars to absolutely free.
Laser Powder Bed Fusion (L-PBF) is central to its production of metal additive manufacturing (AM) parts. In this process, lasers melt and weld layers of metallic powder resulting in parts that are durable and can be polished.
