Rich Haridy for New Atlas: What previously took over an hour to print could now be created in just minutes thanks to a new 3D printer design from engineers at MIT
At the cutting edge of this trend are new types of human-machine interactions, such as virtual reality, next-generation design tools, 3-D printing, and collaborative robots. As these complementary technologies begin to link multiple factories with designers, supply-chain partners, distributors, and customers, the sector can form more dynamic digital networks and turn around the trend of slowing productivity growth.
Manufacturers are increasing productivity 10-40% and reducing tooling costs by addressing an often overlooked flaw in toolholder-retention knob design.
Thomas Hornigold for Singularity Hub: The difference here was the specific audience: workers in factories who need hands-free computing because they need to use their hands at the same time.
Today's HMIs (Human Machine Interfaces) go beyond pushbuttons to incorporate high resolution, multi-touch and haptic technologies.
Manufacturers have always operated with a certain level of risk. While that continues today and will always be the case in one form or another, what has changed are the specific types of risks that manufacturers face, as well as some of the strategies for managing those risks.
SCADAfence Secures $10 Million in Funding to Protect Smart Manufacturing and Critical Infrastructure Networks from Cyber Attacks
Investors include JVP, NexStar Partners and Japan's Global Brain; funds will be used to boost go-to-market efforts and expand research and development operations
TOSHULIN gains a competitive advantage thanks to the displayed data of the visualization and the company knows how to use it cleverly and effectively. The attractive and user-friendly visualization displays the necessary output data for the end-users to further analyse.
VTT Research: This would make parts more quickly and easily available, while creating considerable cost savings. Digitalisation will also enable individual customisation and an increase in the intelligence of parts.
It's also important to look at the bigger picture. When machines do the grunt work, humans are able to solve bigger problems or spend their time in more interesting ways. This shift may well enable the next level of creative culture - the next space race, or a new Enlightenment, perhaps?
How Integrated Thermal Protection Technology Can Prevent Solid State Relay Failure in Industrial Systems
New thermal protection technology for large industrial/commercial HVAC and refrigeration systems, heavy duty transportation, conveyor belts, assembly lines, medical, energy and other complex manufacturing systems.
In the current climate of industrial trucking products, truck manufacturing companies are striving to improve their products in more efficient ways than ever.
Greg Roumeliotis for Reuters: The new offer follows Rockwell's rejections of Emerson's overtures for much of this year.
Industry Week: A new McKinsey report predicts that manufacturing GDP would climb to $3 trillion in real terms by 2025-a boost of some $530 billion, or 20%, above the current trend.
There are advances happening every day with 3D printing, such as medical solutions, shoes and other apparel, houses and even food. 3D Printing has quickly changed our way of living with its unexpected uses.

Sierra Instruments announces the launch of its new flow energy solution for managing and optimizing flow measurement for industrial facilities of all sizes. It features Sierra's QuadraTherm 640i/780i thermal flow meters, their InnovaMass 240i/241i vortex flow meters, and their new InnovaSonic 207i ultrasonic flow meter. Designed, built, and calibrated in the USA by Sierra, the Big-3TM share the same revolutionary Raptor firmware and many of the same software apps. They are a complete flow energy solution for flows like compressed air, natural gas, steam, and hot and chilled water. Together, they set a new standard in ease-of-purchase, performance, accuracy, reliability, and ease of use.
