With the arrival of 5G technology, the manufacturing industry faces its biggest transformation yet. Safer, flexible and more efficient manufacturing systems will be possible thanks to the ultra-low-latency and reliability of 5G connectivity.
Recently, the manufacturing sector has discovered the potential of AR and VR in cutting costs and increasing safety and productivity. But what exactly are the applications of this revolutionary technologies in the factory?
Modern manufacturers face key challenges to reaching their Industry 4.0 potential. MarkLogic knows data is your greatest asset to better serve customers, improve products, and navigate those complex environments.
To keep up with an ever-changing manufacturing supply chain landscape, it is imperative that organizations find the right price management tool to centralize such massive amounts of pricing data and comprehensively and accurately recommend price changes.
The industry consistently says that, to support growth, it needs education and training. Part of that is for a manufacturer to understanding AM but part of that is for AM experts to understand manufacturing.
In part three of this article series, we highlight the overall valuation process, as well as an analysis of factors both internal and external to the business. Here are part one and part two of this series.
The chemicals manufacturing sector has enjoyed positive growth and margins in the last few years. But that's no reason to believe that a slump can't hit the industry in the near future.
Using drones, automation, robotics, and artificial intelligence, companies are leveraging these important warehouse metrics to better serve their customers while improving their own bottom lines.
The powder must be perfectly shaped in order to hold an even surface. A super-thin layer of steel powder is spread out with a roller. Then, a printer head places tiny drops of glue on the areas of the layer that are part of the design.
Instrumental is attacking the 20 to 35 cents of every $1 spent in manufacturing that is wasted. That waste comes from literal scrap at the various factories in the process, returns, mistakes, extra experimentation, travel, and engineering time that wasn't used efficiently..
3D printing has a bright future in the world of "Industry 4.0" and the advanced manufacturing sector of cyber-physical systems. Increasingly diverse raw materials, sophisticated modeling technologies, precise outputs, and more expands every year.
Many manufacturers have already implemented automation in factories, shifting to digitalized manufacturing processes to save time, money and increase efficiency. But what are the options for smaller businesses?
Metal AM gives engineers the opportunity to design higher performance parts with a much simpler manufacturing workflow than traditional manufacturing (think: rocket engines).But, in many cases, taller and larger parts will be no-bid or priced too high for the market.
The PCI-1203 is a 2-port EtherCAT PCI Universal card. It is a ready-to-use EtherCAT development platform for all PC-based industrial automation. The EtherCAT protocol stack is executed autonomously on the PCI card.
Mobile robots move around a factory floor independently without any cages in order to perform their tasks. Despite not having fencing around them, mobile robots are completely safe to use alongside humans in the workspace.
