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.
Pneumatic circuits can be safe when carefully examined and implemented. The designers can use the appropriate level of reliability based on their assessment of the risk and frequency of the potential risk.
Jessica Twentyman for Internet of Business: Internet of Business presents four key technology trends that will help the smart factory deliver on its efficiency and responsiveness goals in 2018.
Sara Murphy for GreenBiz: 3D printing techniques, however, could be almost universally preferable, if industry steers in the right direction. And clear pathways exist for maximizing the technology's green potential.
The modern factory floor relies on APIs because the technology allows manufacturers to effectively track and oversee every step of the value chain from start to finish. It also helps ensure machinery is working efficiently.
Transitioning to 5-axis machining requires both a time and financial investment. But, like all investments, long-term it will pay off. The faster you begin to make the switch, the faster you will start to see the benefits.
Carnegie Mellon University Extends Research into 3D Micro-Additive Manufacturing with Optomec Aerosol Jet Printed Electronics System
Developing novel methods to create next generation manufacturing processes for sensors, antennas and energy harvesting devices
More than a technological revolution, the connected factory is a total reorganization of the approach to production, using existing tools and placing a greater reliance on networks.
Many companies that know how to design for metal 3D printing have found suitable applications and have ordered parts. But these applications are still in their infancy.
Diogo Costa for KnowTechie: There are several aspects that characterize Industry 4.0, including (but not limited to): automated robots, additive manufacture, simulation, horizontal and vertical system integration, industrial IoT...
Eric Wildstein for Gaston Gazette: Students can apply these earned credentials toward earning an associate degree at an institution of higher learning or to find employment in the manufacturing and industrial workforce.
