Often robots have enough mass, speed, and inertia that any contact with humans creates the primary hazard; process driven hazards, for example sparks/splatter and UV light in a robotic welding process becomes the secondary hazard.
There is a demand signal to produce a machine capable of Metal printing on the front lines. Phillips has developed a Hybrid technology that adds a Wire fed Direct Energy Deposition head to a Haas machine.
We've been in a phase of connecting machines through IIoT and the next step is expanding that connection to reduce reliance on workers. Right now, there are 2.1 million manufacturing jobs unfilled.
More than appearances, manufacturers must speak to the positivity of a diverse workforce. Gen Zers expect it, they demand it, and will tell friends to work for companies promoting a varied workforce on both Instagram and Tiktok.
In general, dynamic micro-CT is ideal for obtaining much more complete 3D information throughout a process and provides researchers with a lab-based capacity to collect data during testing without discrete interruptions―true in situ testing.
Creating accurate project proposals takes a lot of time and resources. You have to gather information from lots of different departments and people. There are a couple ways this can go from there.
We have reached a tipping point to reengineer our end-to-end supply chains. Resilience across the entire value chain is critical. You must have the systems in place and ensure there is no over-dependence on any one partner, country, or region.
For manufacturers navigating complexities of artificial intelligence (AI), one key challenge is balancing the advantages of new technology with immediate and long-term costs.
"Made in Switzerland" is a prestigious label and a wide variety of global companies rely on Swiss precision to produce key manufacturing parts of their products, these include Starbucks, Tesla, Hamilton, and many more.
Compliance with safety regulations can provide significant benefits. The right certification can ensure workers on the floor are as safe as possible and make your facility seem more trustworthy to potential partners.
The auto industry is undergoing a major transformation. A wave of new technologies from outside the industry - especially Industry 4.0 technology - is starting to influence industry workflows significantly.
Modern solar heat systems incorporate new technology, like smart sensors and other items to improve efficiency. They have found a home in a wide range of industrial facilities - and could help the manufacturing industry reduce emissions created by heating.
As many strategize how to move forward in 2021, remote operations capacity is one area that is emerging as critical for manufacturers to achieve operational continuity during what could continue to be a uniquely disruptive time.
Manufacturing is beset by major challenges that are made worse by hyper shifts in supply and demand. Three main areas that are persistently an issue for Manufacturers are quality and safety issues, waste and underperforming assets, and high environmental impact.
Agile manufacturing is about creating flexibility to meet the market's expectations. By testing products in the market and making changes quickly, the product and its varying features, packages and options become more reflective of the voice of the customer, sooner.

Pleora's Visual Inspection System helps operators detect errors and defects for unique component types, assembly steps, and custom low-run products where automated optical inspection (AOI) is too complex and expensive. The system helps DICA Electronics: Avoid costly, errors as a result of detecting errors at different phases in production, Speed time in detecting the root cause of the in-field errors with Tracking & Reporting apps for traceability, Maintain consistency in training new employees on requirements or with staff any time a new product is added, Easily train the system using 'good product' images for multiple product lines with no programming skills required, Reduce subjective decision-making, especially over a long shift, reducing error-escapes.
