Together, well-designed technology and people drive solutions. LES is a tool that empowers workers with real-time information to see and solve production problems and create innovation.
To meet consumer demands for authentic and fresh-tasting foods, some innovative packaging technologies are doing the job normally given to preservatives, enabling manufacturers to keep the ingredient list to a minimum.
David Malone for Building Design & Construction: The smart factory is fitted with digitally networked machines that present the entire sheet metal process chain as an interlinked, holistic process.
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.
Visitors to our booth S-7527 will be able to try out the HTC Vive Virtual Reality (VR) headset to visualize typical end of line automated solutions. Any Emulate3D, Sim3D, or Demo3D model can be easily viewed in VR, which provides a genuinely immersive experience which puts you in the facility with the running equipment or system.
Visitors to the Beckhoff booth will again be able to "BYOD", using their own smartphones and tablets to connect with PC-based control demos - including a wall of IoT-enabled devices, plus articulated robot arms from Stäubli - using any mobile device with a web browser.
Jorge Valero for EURACTIV.com: The European Commission backs additive manufacturing as one of the pillars to strengthen its industrial sector and step up efforts to maintain the EU's global advantage.
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.
Building on a longstanding partnership, HP Inc. and Siemens are accelerating 3D printing for industrial production through the creation of a new HP-certified Additive Manufacturing (AM) software module from Siemens.
New method combines precision printing of stretchable conductive inks with pick-and-place of electronic components to make flexible, wearable sensors.
The capability to deliver information instead of just data, and to do it in real-time, has significantly changed the whole data collection model.
Guy Daniels for TelecomTV: Their joint aim is to promote the digital transformation of the manufacturing industry with 5G slicing technology, as well as further Huawei's ongoing commitment to what it calls the Smart Factory.
As many manufacturers don't have large IT departments, employing each of SMAC's four components is a good way to propel production toward growth and increased efficiency. The four components are: Social, Mobility, Analytics, and Cloud.
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.
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
