Without compromising quality, focusing on optimizing plant processes will reduce time and money spent, therefore increasing profits. Here are five optimization techniques for manufacturing facilities.
Sixty-five percent of supplier companies said they received more work in 2018 than in the previous year-a huge jump from the MFGWatch 2016 results of 40 percent (the last time an MFGWatch report was published).
UrsaLeo is an IoT platform company that aims to make it easy for companies to collect their sensor data in the cloud, store it, visualize it and integrate it with other IT systems. This is done in a highly secure and scalable fashion.
The role of Robotic Process Automation (RPA) in Digital transformation as part of disruptive technology space is relentlessly becoming a sneak peek for FTE (Full time equivalent) benefit and ROI (Return on Investment) realization.
Cognitive technologies can be defined as methods that perform or supplement tasks, help to make better decisions, and complete objectives that usually require human intelligence, such as planning, reasoning, and learning.
Hodei's telepresence capabilities leveraging Glass, and by providing access to all the necessary troubleshooting materials on a wearable device, H.B. Fuller employees and customers are able to resolve advanced manufacturing issues in real time.
Thanks to AR, every worker, regardless of language, physical capacity, or pure variability, has the ability to efficiently make the right decision over and over again.
In this paper, an intelligent TSN NIC card is presented. It embeds all the complexity required to connect a standard PC to a TSN network without the need of installing any special software on the host.
Created to spotlight the advances in both innovations and real-world applications of sensors, the prestigious awards were presented by Event Director, Cal Groton, during Sensors Expo & Conference 2019 held this week in San Jose, California.
Schneider Electric Launches First Smart Factory in the U.S. Demonstrating Quantifiable, Real-Time Benefits of Innovative EcoStruxure Solutions
The facility is a showcase for sharing IIoT integration strategies with End Users, Machine Builders and Partners. The Smart Factory has tracked quantifiable benefits from IIoT implementation, including a 20% reduction in mean time to repair and a 90% paperwork elimination.
Essentially, we've reigned in the power requirements of our devices by up to three orders of magnitude, which lets us do everything we need to do off that small form-factor harvesting budget.
Q&A with PBC Linear: With lead screw accuracy up to 3x tighter than industry standard screws, and backlash control up to 4x better than traditional solutions, performance is improved and overall life extended.
ZebraTechnology today announced the results of its 2024 Warehousing Vision Study, analyzing IT and operations decision makers' strategies for modernizing their warehouses, distribution centers and fulfillment centers.
Safety used to be treated somewhat as an afterthought, in that it was added as a separate system once all the other production equipment was in place. Nowadays, many manufacturers are seeing the benefits of integrated safety systems.
Choosing the right compact enclosure is overwhelming. Hundreds of choices in materials, configurations and ratings can lead to confusion and mistakes when specifying the right product.

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.
