Traceability in the Food and Beverage Supply Chain

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 to Cope with Consumer Demands and COVID Challenges

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.

How Is the IoT Changing Pumping Systems Today?

Most conversations around the industrial IoT focus on its applications in assembly lines or inventory management. By comparison, processes like water management fly under the radar, but they contain the same potential.

How to Go Lean With Your Assembly Line Layout

Every operation has different goals and resources, so what lean looks like will vary. Still, there are some general concepts you can follow to create a lean assembly line.

3D-Printed Concrete Could Drastically Change Construction Efficiency

The freeform aspect of 3D printing allows going beyond the rectangular builds that are so common in both modern and historical structures. That means people could eventually see building designs that fascinate and inspire them with their unusual shapes.

Take Advantage of Current CNC Machining Trends

Understanding current trends in CNC machining is the first step to taking advantage of them. Here's what's changing and what it means for machine shops.

Sensor Technology for Fuel Injection Timing

Injection timing is a critical variable in combustion engines. From tinkerers squeezing every bit of horsepower out of their ride to engineers seeking fuel efficiency breakthroughs, making adjustments here affects the entire engine system.

Reshoring America's Manufacturing Through Smart Manufacturing

Reshoring holds great potential for companies to gain increased flexibility and responsiveness when facing supply chain disruption. During COVID-19, we saw companies forced to fly to China to pick up specific parts.

Increasing Productivity by Reducing Tool Change time with Multicouplings

"Many manufacturing processes have interchangeable tooling in their machines. These tools require pneumatic, hydraulic, chemical, or electrical connections to operate. Instead of connecting individual connections one at a time, they can be connected at the same time."

USDA Investing in Water and Wastewater Infrastructure

As the coronavirus pandemic rages on, the government is taking steps toward protecting public health. On May 27, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced a $281 million investment in improving water and wastewater infrastructure.

The Real World Quality Journey

Quality 4.0 blends technology with traditional methods of quality, in order to help manufacturers achieve operational excellence. It leverages technology to collect data enterprise-wide to provide visibility into the complete product lifecycle and manage workflows.

Edge AI technology In Manufacturing Operations

A downside of so much automation is that there is now a heavier dependence on machinery/robots to perform action. For some lines, if one of robot goes down, the entire line does.

How Manufacturers are Leveraging New Technology to Meet Customer Demands

AI-guided selling enables analytics to move from descriptive to predictive and prescriptive analytics. The process uses customer and sales data for a scientific, data-driven approach to understand buyer processes and behaviors.

Simplifying AI Deployment for Quality Inspection

In the vision market, we're really at that initial AI and machine learning phase. AI for inspection excels at locating, identifying, and classifying objects and segmenting scenes and defects, with less sensitivity to image variability or distortion.

How Does Electropolishing Surfaces Keep Food Safe?

Trouble often comes from the surfaces that warehouses, processing plants and other facilities use. Without the right surface material, bacteria can collect even with the right practices in place - raising the risk of food contamination.
