The benefits of additive manufacturing are hard to ignore. So, why hasnt it achieved wider adoption? There are a few important hurdles that AM needs to clear for the aerospace industry at large to get on board.
We compiled ten of our favorite RFID applications that give you ideas for possible use cases and what benefits you can expect to gain by using industrial RFID.
Manufacturing industry has to ensure that all the products being manufactured are of high quality, right specifications and perform the required functions. Two processes help in ensuring that - instrument calibration and validation.
While the connected factory demands new and emerging technologies to be overlaid and interwoven into the manufacturing environment, existing systems such as MES, ERP and ECM are also at the forefront of IoT enablement.
Booth #E9238 - EWI UltraThinSeal will present sealing demos on an ultrasonic reciprocating-style VFFS bagmaker, making real packages from thin, complex flexible packaging films.
Robotics, AI, and basic IoT digitization is the technology that will be needed to design smart factories. Abundant data and smart robotics will magnify a factorys output, while minimizing costs and defects.
Many companies believe and perpetuate the myth that AM is only a prototyping tool, innovators in a range of markets (e.g., aerospace, healthcare, consumer goods and more) are already using AM for production-grade manufacturing when design, performance and cost factors align
Healthcare Packaging EXPO shines light on achieving greater agility, record keeping and speed in maintenance.
The need for precise motion control is driven by many demands now placed on the line, from moving products around on the manufacturing floor to a variety of work stations to the logistics of moving the finished product through a facility.
Additive manufacturing enables not just personalisation but also, importantly, cost reduction and gains in success. There are sure to emerge many more potential applications.
Booth #N4936 - Dorner will be showcasing 6 different demos with 13 unique conveyor platforms. Two of the demos showcase our new redesigned AquaGard 7350 Series which is scheduled to launch this October.
Designing sensors that offer the capacity to communicate wirelessly and synthesize data with a cloud-based interface are one of the most important factors to consider when designing sensors for factories.
Operations managers report that when new workers are exposed to the latest mobile voice technologies, there is vastly higher job satisfaction and employee retention, while immediately increasing their value to new employers.
Booth #N4740 - One exciting example of flexible and interactive technology will be the new collaborative robots. The new line, brought by Omron and Techman, is safer, simpler to program and easier to integrate with other equipment
Booth #S4314 - This year well be introducing our AS40 conveyors with backlights. These backlights are specially designed to fit within the frame of our conveyors and, when coupled with a translucent belt, provide extra contrast for vision systems to aid in inspection
