Britain must embrace 'Industry 4.0' as robots can create thousands of jobs, says report

Purvai Dua for London Loves Business: Britains manufacturing sector could add £455bn over the next decade and create thousands of jobs if it unlocks the fourth industrial revolution

3D printing doubles the strength of stainless steel

Robert F. Service for ScienceMag: Now, researchers have come up with a way to 3D print tough and flexible stainless steel, an advance that could lead to faster and cheaper ways to make everything from rocket engines to parts for nuclear reactors and oil rigs.

Is Google Glass Staging A Comeback?

Terri Hiskey for MinuteHack: Glass may have finally found its home, and last month we heard news that industrial companies, such as General Motors, GE Aviation, Boeing and Volkswagen, have all been using the smart glasses to help workers perform complex manual tasks.

Veo Robotics raises $12 million to help machines and humans collaborate more efficiently

BÉRÉNICE MAGISTRETTI for VentureBeat: Sobalvarro and his team are trying to reduce the manual labor humans shoulder in industrial work settings, leaving the heavy lifting to the robots.

Carbon Introduces Production-Scale 3D Printing Materials Program for Large Manufacturers

This production volume materials approach will allow us to ensure that our partners like adidas, which will be printing thousands or millions of parts, can do so economically compared to other manufacturing methods such as injection molding.

How Machine Learning Will Unlock The Future Of 3D Printing

Cliff Kuang for Fast Co.Design: The bridge is really just a proof-of-concept for printed steel applications that range from shipbuilding to offshore oil rigs. Getting there will require not just better software, but robots that can teach themselves how to get better at 3D printing.

Okuma introduces smart factory solution

Rosemarie Stahl for ETMM: Okuma, manufacturer of CNC machine tools, introduces its solution for the smart production called Connect Plan at EMO Hannover 2017.

Finnish micro-factory highlights path to business success

Tim Sandle for Digital Journal: The micro-factory concept is based on robotics and a flexible approach to manufacturing. Then key selling point is that the factory can be set-up and put to work very quickly.

Will Voxeljet's High Speed Sintering Reinvent 3D Printing?

Zacks Equity Research: The HSS technology involves an infrared absorbing ink, that is selectively jetted onto layers of plastic powder, which are then exposed to infrared light. The powder melts under the light and forms functional plastic parts with qualities similar to those produced via Selective Laser Sintering, Multi Jet Fusion, or injection molding.

What does Industry 4.0 mean for the future of logistics?

Steve Twydell for ITProPortal: Rapid advances in artificial intelligence will change the way we manage logistics across a range of industries says Steve Twydell, CEO of transport management experts 3T Logistics.

5 ways to advance robotics in manufacturing

Stephanie Condon for ZDNet: The maturity of automated technology used in manufacturing is all over the map, says Carnegie Mellon Prof. Howie Choset, but there are concrete ways to fix that.

Introducing Myriad X: Unleashing AI at the Edge

Remi El-Ouazzane for Intel: The First Vision Processing Unit with a Dedicated Neural Compute Engine will Give Devices the Ability to See, Understand and Interact with the World Around Them in Real Time

Laser ultrasound: the future of metal 3D printing?

Nell Walker for Manufacturing Global: Using laser ultrasound rather than camera imaging, it is hoped that Duttons work could encourage the use of 3D printing within mass manufacturing industries, as it removes the need for a separate inspection process.

Defending 3D Printers From Hackers

Charles Q. Choi for IEEE Spectrum: Researchers reveal three methods of verifying that 3d-printed parts have not been compromised by someone hacking the printer itself.

Space-Based 3-D Printing Reaches Milestone

Mike Wall, SPACE.com: A 3D printer built by the California-based company Made in Space churned out multiple polymer-alloy objects - the largest of which was a 33.5-inch-long (85 centimeters) beam - during a 24-day test inside a thermal vacuum chamber (TVAC) here in Silicon Valley at NASA's Ames Research Center in June.

EXAIR’s Gen4 Ion Air Cannon

EXAIR's Gen4 Ion Air Cannon

Quiet, efficient, concentrated flow of ionized air removes static and dust! EXAIR's Gen4 Ion Air Cannon neutralizes static electricity and cleans at distances up to 15 feet (4.6m) with no moving parts. It is ideal for those hard to reach spaces or confined areas that require a concentrated flow of static eliminating ions. The Gen4 Ion Air Cannon will maximize ionized airflow while minimizing compressed air consumption. A small amount of compressed air is used to entrain a high volume flow of surrounding air. This combined stream is ionized by an emitter point (shockless) and delivered to the charged surface. A hose or tube can be connected to the air intake of the Gen4 Ion Air Cannon to draw quality air from another area. It requires only 10 PSIG (0.7 BAR) for most applications. www.exair.com/184/iacdirem.htm EXAIR is offering a special right now on all of their Gen4 Static Eliminators.
