Apple Wins a Patent for a Future 3D Printing System that works with Augmented Reality and AR Glasses

Patently Apple: Apple notes that there's a need for further applications of a 3D printer, such as extending an existing real object through printing additional objects onto a surface of the existing object by using a 3D printer.

How to Solve the Challenges of Using Natural Refrigerants in Cooling System Design

The use of natural refrigerants is on the rise, creating a new set of challenges for cooling system design. HVAC system developers can optimize safety and efficiency by understanding the implications of the trend on component design and selection.

New Tube Cutting Technology Meets Next Generation Production Needs

While legacy stent and tube cutting systems have performed well during recent decades, new cutting technologies coming onto the market offer faster and better cuts, with higher production rates and new and unique cutting capabilities.

Why STEM needs fresh ideas to bring about the fourth Industrial Revolution

Alan Tovey for The Telegraph: The 'fourth Industrial Revolution' is upon us and there is an urgent need for STEM experts and their fresh ideas, says the Telegraph's industry editor

T3D Smartphone 3D Printer Successfully Funded on Kickstarter

Michael Molitch-Hou for Engineering.com: Similar to digital light processing (DLP), layered slices are projected from the phone onto a vat of resin. The print bed is gradually lifted out of the vat with each flash of light until a complete object is revealed.

Is Next-Shoring the New Frontier in Manufacturing?

Next shoring involves moving a company's production capacity to where the market for the goods is. For U.S. centered companies, serving American markets, this is the same as reshoring, as reshoring entails moving production capacity back to the U.S. to meet production demands in U.S. markets.

Carbon Introduces Production-Scale 3D Printing Materials Program for Large Manufacturers

This production volume materials approach will allow us to ensure that our partners like adidas, which will be printing thousands or millions of parts, can do so economically compared to other manufacturing methods such as injection molding.

Additive Manufacturing Technology Enables Radical New Designs

Additive manufacturing represents a seachange for the manufacturing sector. In many cases, 3D printing has resulted in an immediate, cost-effective solution to an issue. More importantly, it has resulted in a complete re-engineering of parts, so that they are now better suited for the dedicated function they are intended to serve.

3D Scanning in Manufacturing

Eventually, 3D scanners and 3D printers are likely to become one solution, similar to how 2D scanners have now been integrated into 2D printers.

The Death of Windows CE Gives Rise to IoT Real-Time

In the case of Windows Compact, the death of a product is actually giving rise to a whole new world where the possibilities are truly amazing. What will you develop?

How Machine Learning Will Unlock The Future Of 3D Printing

Cliff Kuang for Fast Co.Design: The bridge is really just a proof-of-concept for printed steel applications that range from shipbuilding to offshore oil rigs. Getting there will require not just better software, but robots that can teach themselves how to get better at 3D printing.

Okuma introduces smart factory solution

Rosemarie Stahl for ETMM: Okuma, manufacturer of CNC machine tools, introduces its solution for the smart production called Connect Plan at EMO Hannover 2017.

Wind River's AXON Predict Analytics for VxWorks Enables IoT Analytics at the Edge

What do I want to eat yesterday? Seems like a strange question. Yet IoT systems are architected to often ask very similar questions by aggregating a massive amount of data in a central repository where every so often a data scientist can evaluate and perhaps realize some insights that would have been best realized and responded to at the time the events were taking place at the edge.

You Need to Implement the IIoT Before It's Too Late

Ease of access, improved productivity and automated decision-making are amongst the primary benefits of the IIoT. Those who hesitate are bound to suffer serious setbacks in output, customer service and overall competitiveness in the comings months and years.

Finnish micro-factory highlights path to business success

Tim Sandle for Digital Journal: The micro-factory concept is based on robotics and a flexible approach to manufacturing. Then key selling point is that the factory can be set-up and put to work very quickly.

MICROSCAN: READ AND VERIFY BARCODES INVISIBLE TO THE NAKED EYE

MICROSCAN: READ AND VERIFY BARCODES INVISIBLE TO THE NAKED EYE

Space, or the lack of it, can be a challenge when placing barcodes or Data Matrix symbols on components. However, readable barcodes are critical to component traceability, time/date stamping, work in progress (WIP) tracking, and recall management. MicroHAWK UHD smart cameras can decode very small and difficult-to-read barcodes, including Data Matrix two-dimensional (2D) symbols and direct part marks (DPM). Users can rely on the MicroHAWK UHD to read symbols with an x-dimension almost invisible to the naked eye!
