Point Grey, a global leader in high-performance digital cameras for industrial and scientific applications, today announced the release of its new Spinnaker software development kit (SDK) to simplify and accelerate the creation of new vision applications.
Ben Rossi for Information Age: Robotics has already been deployed in manufacturing to great effect for over a decade, performing delicate and precise tasks with greater accuracy than humans. But now cutting-edge robots and other smart machines are set to join forces with the rapidly expanding Internet of Things, which Gartner estimates will total 25 billion devices by 2020. In healthcare, robotic services are already operating pharmacy dispensers and robotic trolleys are now deployed in a growing number of hospitals. In hospitality, robots deliver services such as drinks dispensing and automated trolley deliveries. Robots have even made their way into education, where they are being deployed successfully as a tutor, tool or peer in learning activities. But what impact will this large-scale adoption of robotics have on existing networks as they encounter inevitable further strain? Cont'd...
IMTS - Come and see TopSolid 7, the first PDM based CAD/CAM solution LIVE in action at IMTS 2016, Chicago, September 12-16, Booth #E3236
The French software publisher Missler Software has recently launched the new version 7.10 of its TopSolidCam CAD/CAM software. The performance of the software has continued to improve since the latest generation of TopSolid was released, reducing average production times by 30% to 40%.
Design automation is highly beneficial to such industries that develop products which although look the same, have the provision of customization for specific customer requirements.
Industrial Gateways, Application Development Platforms, and IoT Services Set to Fuel IIoT and Connected Factory Growth, According to VDC Research
Amidst a backdrop of macroeconomic headwinds and volatility in key markets and regions, vendors look to the IoT to improve efficiency and create new applications and markets.
Steve O'Hear for TechCrunch: 3D Hubs, an online marketplace for 3D printing services, is tapping into two recent trends enabled by industrial 3D printing: the rapid prototyping of new products, and the move to personalised and bespoke production. The Amsterdam-headquartered startup connects those requiring 3D printing with local 3D printers, both through its website that lets you order 3D printing jobs online, including getting a real-time quote, and via an API that enables companies to automate short production runs of products on-demand. The latter, of course, is also powering “zero-inventory” manufacturing: products are only produced on a per-order basis (and in some instances are also fulfilled directly to the end customer), which is another trend that is starting to gain traction.

Standard robot models are now mass-produced, making them more available to meet the ever-increasing demand. These robots are more straightforward, and more conducive to plug and play installation.
"Digital Factory" solutions - blazing the trail for new manufacturing technologies and production concepts.
Glowforge Announces $22 Million Series B Investment from Foundry Group and True Ventures to Bring 3D Laser Printers to Mass Production
Glowforge is a desktop laser that prints beautiful and useful products, from leather wallets to hardwood jewelry boxes, with a press of its single button. Designs can come from any software that can produce a PDF or a picture, such as Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator. Onboard cameras can scan drawings and convert them directly to designs as well.

Industry leading CNC manufacturer, Diversified Machine Systems, launches redesigned website to improve user experience
Gaining efficiency in product design and manufacturing is what every manufacturer would want, in order to bring products to market faster and remain profitable.
Manish Sablokk for IoTTech: Cutting-edge robots and other advanced smart machines are set to be added into the rapidly expanding Internet of Things, which is projected to reach 25 billion devices by 2020. Robotics has already been used in manufacturing to great effect for over a decade, performing delicate and precise tasks with a higher success rate than humans. With advancements such as 'deep learning' robots, delivery drones and ubiquitous knowledge-sharing between machines, widespread robotics adoption is becoming far more feasible. In healthcare, there are already robotic services in operation with automated pharmacy dispensing and robotic trolleys - robots that can navigate between floors and even call the lift using a Wi-Fi sensor. The hospitality sector has also been a keen adopter of robotics to deliver services and in education, robots are being deployed successfully as a tutor, tool or peer in learning activities, providing language, science and technology education.
