Chain, Chain, Chain

As consumers and participants in the supply chain demand greater transparency, blockchain has the potential to transform how information about a food product flows from farm to fork to ensure quality and safety by adding greater visibility and efficiency to the process.

Industry Cultural Resistance is Biggest Enemy of Automation, Says New IQPC Survey

Very few (less than 5%) of the 430 respondents surveyed have established an intelligent enterprise (IE) and nearly 35% either hadn't begun or had no plans to establish IE technologies such as AI and intelligent automation.

3 Ways IoT is Disrupting the Supply Chain

Once viewed as the latest IT fad, the IoT is now gaining real traction as a legitimate platform business connectivity - and tech-savvy companies are already reaping the benefits.

Successful Digital Transformation in Industry 4.0 Starts With Human Operators

Human Machine Interface (HMI) is present when human interaction with an automated device becomes necessary. HMI is present now more than ever due to the need for more reliable hardware, higher data security, and efficiency.

More Mistakes That Manufacturers Make

Last year, I wrote about the Common Mistakes That Growing Manufacturers Make (June 2017). Well, here are a few more examples of how manufacturers can avoid serious problems and reduce risks, costs, and streamline their business processes.

Axiomtek and FANUC America Case Study: Machining Simulator

The main purpose of the Machining Simulator is to promote learning about manufacturing in a classroom setting. Each simulator reacts exactly like a real machine and allows students to design, create CAD/CAM models and command the machine tool to produce simulated end product

Renishaw Reduces Machining Time for Aerospace Impeller Manufacturer

If the workpiece datum of a finished part is off-centre, the impeller must be submitted for design analysis, in which a designer reviews the component and decides whether it can be used. Each analysis costs approximately $66,900 per part
