In the face of increased global competitiveness, the pressure to innovate is on. Given this pressure and the industry's disappearing labor force, A&D executives are turning to automation to ensure the consistent productivity of their facilities.
Operators will soon be able to test and optimize the machine settings for the next product in line in the virtual world before they make the physical change-over.
We have demonstrated the ability to electrospin liquid CHS into silicon nanowires that when blended with carbon lead to performance comparable to that achieved by CVD grown silicon nanowires but at reduced cost and simplified scaling.
All these companies are logistics and material handling vendors and times are changing in logistics and fulfillment
The Tesla factory in Fremont, California, and the Gigafactory in Nevada are monuments to science and progress.
Process and device will become inseparable. This is the direction were heading in and it is all powered by the capabilities of Industry 4.0.
The 3D printing field is expected to grow more than 14% annually to become an $8.4 billion industry by 2020
Understanding Permanent Marks and Methods for UDI Marking and Verification
Industry 4.0 capabilities enable flexible technologies to take the factory floor: self-driving vehicles offer flexibility, proactive planning, collaboration, and adaptive behaviours.
When it comes to 3D printing versus injection molding, the best production method for your parts will become clear when you can answer these questions regarding your desired quantity, quality and cost.
Since fewer companies have applied smart manufacturing patents in chemical, food, biotechnology, mechanical, transport, and machine tools industries, these sectors are relatively uncontested for perspective vendors.
Like a superstrong magnet, 3D printing will pull manufacturing away from the manufacturing hubs and redistribute it, product by product, among thousands or tens of thousands of smaller factories across the globe.
The Internet is not going to hit the factory all at once; the transition to global connectivity will be gradual. In the meantime, businesses have a chance to prepare their operations to integrate seamlessly with this new era of industry by taking steps now to implement digital, automated, connected devices and services.
Declining 3D printer prices will prompt innovations at a faster rate in downstream markets, making customization the new norm for a wide variety of products.
The challenge ahead is that not only manufacturing technologies will change drastically but the whole business environment, in which Japan may have to strive to overcome other than IoT super next generation automation.

Use Data to Deliver Efficiency, Reduce Risk, and Create Better Products. Disruptive technologies and market changes are transforming the manufacturing industry, requiring a new focus on optimizing use of data and information. It all adds up to a new industrial revolution called Industry 4.0. Organizations who want to realize the potential of this revolution need to "Industrialize their data," making it a core asset to deliver better products and customer service, navigate complex business environments, and transform for the future. MarkLogic customers are delivering on this vision for data with a proven architectural pattern called the Operational Data Hub that simplifies the integration of data along the digital thread to power operational and analytic use cases across the enterprise.
