Modern manufacturers face key challenges to reaching their Industry 4.0 potential. MarkLogic knows data is your greatest asset to better serve customers, improve products, and navigate those complex environments.
DS3 is a self-contained start-to-finish production facility for vertical and horizontal machining centers and double-column machining centers. This is the third smart factory investment by Okuma.
To keep up with an ever-changing manufacturing supply chain landscape, it is imperative that organizations find the right price management tool to centralize such massive amounts of pricing data and comprehensively and accurately recommend price changes.
The industry consistently says that, to support growth, it needs education and training. Part of that is for a manufacturer to understanding AM but part of that is for AM experts to understand manufacturing.
The increase in the demand for open source Linux software & RTOS software is expected to offer a lucrative growth to the embedded software market.
In part three of this article series, we highlight the overall valuation process, as well as an analysis of factors both internal and external to the business. Here are part one and part two of this series.
The chemicals manufacturing sector has enjoyed positive growth and margins in the last few years. But that's no reason to believe that a slump can't hit the industry in the near future.
Using drones, automation, robotics, and artificial intelligence, companies are leveraging these important warehouse metrics to better serve their customers while improving their own bottom lines.
The powder must be perfectly shaped in order to hold an even surface. A super-thin layer of steel powder is spread out with a roller. Then, a printer head places tiny drops of glue on the areas of the layer that are part of the design.
Instrumental is attacking the 20 to 35 cents of every $1 spent in manufacturing that is wasted. That waste comes from literal scrap at the various factories in the process, returns, mistakes, extra experimentation, travel, and engineering time that wasn't used efficiently..
3D printing has a bright future in the world of "Industry 4.0" and the advanced manufacturing sector of cyber-physical systems. Increasingly diverse raw materials, sophisticated modeling technologies, precise outputs, and more expands every year.
Though the prospect of manufacturing hearts and other organs via a 3D bioprinter is likely a decade away, the July launch is a significant milestone in that quest.
Many manufacturers have already implemented automation in factories, shifting to digitalized manufacturing processes to save time, money and increase efficiency. But what are the options for smaller businesses?
Metal AM gives engineers the opportunity to design higher performance parts with a much simpler manufacturing workflow than traditional manufacturing (think: rocket engines).But, in many cases, taller and larger parts will be no-bid or priced too high for the market.
• Professionals are most commonly using 3D printing technology for prototyping prospective products/parts/components (55%) • Thereafter, 43% are applying the applications of 3D printing within their production processes

LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is one of the most reliable methods for parts sensing in factory automation today. SICK has made this technology affordable and easy to use! Click on the video link below to learn about the TiM1xx LiDAR sensor and how it provides: - Area scanning LiDAR technology in a standard sensor package - 200-degree field of view and 3 meter sensing range allows for 169 square feet of area scanning - Compact size and light weight enables ease of deployment in "non-standard" type applications, like end-of-arm robotic tooling - Wide area scanning without having to mount a transmitter and receiver makes installation much easier - IO Link for easy configuration
