Lee Min-hyung for Korea Times: LSIS, the nation's top electric equipment maker, aims to apply integrated automation systems into all of its manufacturing facilities as a core strategy to slash operating costs and dominate the nation's energy efficiency market. The so-called "smart factory" initiative comes amid growing popularity for efficient management systems in the age of the Internet of Things (IoT). Global equipment manufacturers are jumping on the "smart" bandwagon for management efficiency, but only a few companies here have achieved significant feats on the area. LSIS's manufacturing facility, however, offers a glimpse of what automated factory is all about, ranging from assembling parts to packaging. In particular, the company's G production line is equipped with fully-automated production system operated by its programmable logic controller (PLC). The PLC is interconnected with the manufacturing execution system (MES), serving as a network hub to manage every level of manufacturing processes within the factory. Cont'd...
Novotechnik U.S. introduces the Vert-X 31E Series of rotary angle sensors. The sensors are touchless magnetic angle sensors with a permanent magnet that can be secured to an applications rotating shaft, so that there is no direct mechanical linkage between the shaft and the measuring system, and therefore no wear.
In a human-machine study conducted by an MIT professor, it was shown that teams made of humans and robots collaborating efficiently can be more productive than teams made of either humans or robots alone.
The rankings also reveal a shift among the world's traditional manufacturing powerhouses due to the Asia Pacific region's rising influence and declining strength in European and BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China).
Lab to feature hands-on training without slowing or stopping production lines
This release includes 49 best-in-class robots developed by OMRON Adept Technologies, Inc. These have been integrated with OMRON's family of sensors, safety components and award-winning NX/NJ series machine automation controllers to simplify the introduction of robots in a production environment.

Rex Nutting for MarketWatch: U.S. manufacturing sector doesn’t get any respect. Ask a random sample of people on the street and you’re likely to hear that America doesn’t make anything anymore, that China, Mexico and Vietnam took all of our factories, and that the only jobs left in America are flipping burgers and cleaning hotel rooms. “Throughout history, at the center of any thriving country has been a thriving manufacturing sector,” says presidential candidate Donald Trump. “But under decades of failed leadership, the United States has gone from being the globe’s manufacturing powerhouse — the envy of the world — through a rapid deindustrialization.” Cont'd.. .
Over the next decade, 3.4 million manufacturing jobs will likely be needed, and 60% of them are likely to be unfilled due to the talent shortage. How can we close that number (and the skills gap)?
