Ensuring seamless laser weld quality control and manufacturing traceability, the monitors catch weld errors as they occur in real time, instead of reacting to defects downstream. This ultimately increases yield, improves quality, saves labor, and increases savings.
Companies will need to quickly find ways to sustain their business, mitigate all supply chain risks, and be more flexible to the new environment. These requirements will drive a need for greater visibility and control over operations.
When the manufacturing industry emerges out of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will see the rapid trend of digitalization. However, to achieve maximum success - this will only happen if manufacturers finally deal with the challenge of data silos!
Increasing global competition and an awareness of the need to pivot away from on-site commissioning to safer and more cost-effective virtual methods are the main drivers behind a growing interest in industrial analytical simulation.
IMTS to continue to offer digital experiences to foster connections, networking and technical learning opportunities.
By continually monitoring the condition of your equipment's most critical mechanical and electrical components, failures can be avoided with predictive maintenance carried out during scheduled downtimes, resulting in continual operations.
The adoption of automated systems should be based on a clearheaded commercial and technical analysis to strike the right balance between speed, cost, quality and value.
Now, with concerns over China's handling of the virus, rising labor costs across the developing world and apprehension about geographically concentrated supply chains, companies are placing bets on the next hotspot for affordable manufacturing services.
Industry 4.0 has been a hot topic at maxon since the drive specialist introduced configurable drives. Now we're continuing to drive digitization - but not at all costs.
Before COVID-19 there were visual experiences inspiring interest, driving demand, and creating a path to purchase in today's digital economies. Manufacturers have modified Visual Commerce customer outreach efforts to compensate for a non-deployable salesperson during COVID-19.
Remote monitoring for managing and reducing water usage is an especially consequential and cost-saving technology. Here's why manufacturers should begin putting it to work today.
There has always been a great deal of confusion over the potential investment required to develop high-quality tooling for manufacturers and any associated benefits. Now, new digital developments mean that is no longer the case.
Autonomous Maintenance is one of eight pillars that make up Total Productive Maintenance (TPM). It's also one of the most important activities that eventually determine the success of any TPM implementation project.
In a world waiting to take its next move after the COVID-19 pandemic, we'd like to offer you and your team design resources for injection molded parts to help keep skills sharp during this uncertain time.
The survey, based on 200 global businesses, indicates smart manufacturers achieve their status by achieving three key factors when planning and implementing pilot programs

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
