With potentially disastrous effects resulting from galled fasteners seizing or even being subject to a fatigue breakage, the manufacturing industry players are advised to counter this threat.
Automobile manufacturing as we know it is failing; can microfactories be the answer to how we make the mobility products of the future?
Can 3D printing be used in the manufacture of safety critical vehicle parts?
This article discusses how the "power factor" of a facility directly impacts billing; it also illustrates the need for power quality monitoring as a way of reducing costs. What's the potential for savings?
There are three primary uses for ESD safe plastics: electronics manufacturing (e.g. ESD safe jigs and fixtures for printed circuit board manufacturing), materials in a combustible/explosive environment, and nuisance static charge elimination
The main essence of a supply chain is to deliver the right product to the right people at the right time. While it may sound simple, it is difficult to achieve.
In the final article of this series, we highlight the three business valuation approaches, as well as the level of value adjustments, and provide a final summary of what manufacturers need to know about business valuation.
With fewer docks required because each dock can handle higher volumes, the automatic unloading system processes up to 6,000 parcels per hour which means that the maximum capacity of the sorting machines can be utilized achieving optimal overall equipment effectiveness (OEE).
The growing number of industrialisation questions are indicative of a growing maturity in the marketplace. AM machines are moving out of prototyping applications and research laboratories and into mainstream production manufacturing.
When determining the rate of adoption of new technologies, the Gartner hype cycle is a good point of reference. The hype cycle for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), however, shouldn't be confused with general IoT, which applies to consumer IoT technology.
With all the buzz about these new design tools, there is still quite a bit of ground left to be covered in ensuring these next-generation designs are actually manufacturable. That is where we can really shine.
Too often, businesses start with an "intent to connect" instead of focusing on a business model. Companies that are just looking to create a connected version of a product fail to solve actual problems that are affecting the business.
While it's important for manufacturers to have sound cybersecurity measures and protocols in place, it's equally important to have IT resilience and orchestration solutions at the ready.
A mass flow meter (MFM) has five major components: flow body, flow conditioning section, flow sensor tube, bypass, and electronics. A mass flow controller (MFC) has the same components as an MFM, but also has an integral control valve mounted on the same flow body as the MFM
The proven impact of machine learning models has pushed more investment toward their development. Still there are plenty more gains to be realized.
