Maximizing the capabilities of end-of-line packaging systems for handling medical devices depends upon how smoothly the disparate functions are integrated into a singular, optimized packaging line. Robotics and turnkey integration provide the solution.
The demand for data from both OT teams and cloud and enterprise systems has grown exponentially, but the manufacturing industry is still tied closely to the Purdue Model.
We've had multiple reminders in 2021 that digital connectivity of IT and OT infrastructure requires proportional attention risk management to proactively neutralize ransomware and full array of attack vector focused on industrial environments.
Factoring in increased competition, supply chain challenges, and demand shifts, the manufacturing sector should waste no time adopting digital solutions to revolutionize their processes and solutions.
Many investments made by manufacturers over the past two years delivered new capabilities and efficiencies that should be carried forward as manufacturers look to the future in search of new business growth.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is gaining favor as a solution for quality problems, but many manufacturers struggle with the perceived cost and complexity of implementing new technology.
When beginning an ISO 9001 implementation, organizations often ask whether they should tackle the project on their own or if it would be worthwhile to bring a consultant in to help accomplish the task.
Manufacturers are facing a troubling scenario: the need to maintain production levels in the midst of the largest workforce shakeup in our lifetime. The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) provides a highly effective, flexible and cost-efficient solution.
Swedish philosopher Nick Bostrom once said, "machine intelligence is the last invention that humanity will ever need to make". AI decision making, with real time communication and data analytics, has the ability to transform the way manufacturers understand machines.
Establishing cost-effect fabrication processes for microLED displays has proven to be challenging, and manufacturers are still working to close the gap between promise and market reality.
Part of optimizing any logistics operation is to make sure that you are not incurring additional and lasting costs on the path to speeding up your rate of fulfillment. The goal is to move more product through your system and out the door - but you also must watch expenses.
Without making wholesale production changes, factories can improve process efficiency with machine learning (ML). ML can increase production capacity by up to 20% while lowering material consumption rates by 4%.
Q&A with Chris Nicholson, CEO of Pathmind. A digital twin is at once capable of simulating things that have never happened before, as well as mirroring a real, underlying physical reality and monitoring its performance.
The edge is an essential layer of the manufacturing technology stack. Machines on the factory floor collect vast amounts of raw data from various sources using numerous protocols, which all needs to be processed quickly to gain actionable insight.
With rapid advancement in automated and connected technologies, managing both new and old equipment simultaneously can be a challenging balancing act.
