Predictive manufacturing systems allow users transparency in operations. The basis of a predictive manufacturing system is the smart software, which is used to control predictive modeling functionalities.
Research continues to develop regarding how the die casting process can improve in speed and efficiency. 3D printing for die repair is a notable focus, with die casters and the North American Die Casting Association embracing additive manufacturing technologies such as 3D printing for efficiency and accuracy purposes.
Process Data is the input for the second generation of data-driven quality technologies. The technology is particularly useful in assemblies such as control arms which combine heavy-duty stamping with resilient components that are difficult to position accurately and repeatably.
Every industry, from recreation to governmental organization, is adopting the growing trend of kiosks. But what about kiosk manufacturers themselves! What should they embark upon to serve these industries right with the appropriate quality?
As we move deeper into the Industry 4.0 era, advancements in automation, artificial intelligence, machine learning, cloud computing and big data play an increasingly important role in how factories operate.
Modern systems are paving the way to allow our customers to make products people want in the way they want them, instead of making products and spending our time trying to make people want them.
The 7 Wastes are tasks or processes that provide little to no added value to the product or to the user experience.
To understand these benefits, we start with the basic concept of direct drive whereby the force of a motor is directly applied to a mechanism without any intermediate drive train such as a gearbox or toothed belt etc. The core working principles of direct drive motor technology is in essence based on the right hand rule of electromagnetism, whereby a current moving through a wound coil creates a magnetic field.
In this article, we look at ways in which the world of HPC (High-performance computing) is approaching the latest disruptions and trends, and how the world of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) must match this proactive rather than reactive stance.
FLCs can be used in standalone applications or as a way to expand I/O without adding more I/O points to a PLC.
Demands for greater variety, lower cost, improved quality, and smaller batch sizes can turn a prosperous production into a fading one. Fully automated production cells can resolve the issue.
A proper choice of an industrial power supply can already solve problems and error messages caused by reversed energy.
With VisualApplets providing SICK with a wide range of new possibilities for application solutions, SICK's customer requirements can be adapted to their systems for a wider gamut of image processing applications.
In addition to production metrics, manufacturing equipment statuses are also displayed. Operators or maintenance workers can quickly see and react if a machine is operational, being resupplied or out of service based on the icons and colors associate to the equipment on the display.
Competent consultants can greatly enhance the risk assessment process, but the final responsibility for personnel safety is still that of the employer. Employees should also be trained to recognize hazards and act appropriately.
