GE Is Building The World's Largest 'Additive' Machine For 3D Printing Metals

The production version, still to be named, will extend the third dimension to a meter. GE Additive said the machine's "build geometry will be customizable and scalable for an individual customer's project. Its feature resolution and build-rate speeds will equal or better today's additive machines."

The Next Phase in Industrial Dust Explosion Protection

Among its directives, NFPA 652 outlines deadlines for sampling and analysis to identify potential risk areas for dust explosions in industrial facilities. Spotlight now turns to mitigation equipment.

Solving Engineering Challenges with Teflon

Teflon and other functional coatings from an experienced applicator can solve design problems including excessive wear, sticking, noise and corrosion.

Kiosk Manufacturers Should Partner for CAD Design Support and Not for Manufacturing

It is vital for manufacturers not to give away what they are best at, to some third-party contract manufacturing firm and compromise the quality and the experience promise that clients expect. The cost equation that's bothering these manufacturers, however, can be solved by shedding the non-core design tasks while retaining back the control in manufacturing.

Automated Engineering

Automation is worthwhile particularly when there are large amounts of data, the tasks are repetitive or certain data is already available electronically in databases or other systems.

Job Shop Manufacturing: Manual Material Transport Could Cost You $1m/year

So how can you improve the value stream while reducing wasted time and money to incorporate lean manufacturing principles? The answer lies in one word: Automation.

Custom Formulators Create a Better Bond with Laminated Coil

OEMs turn to custom formulators to solve complex adhesion problems with laminated coil and sheet metals.

Fit To Print: See Firsthand How GE's Additive Business Is Changing The Way We Make Jet Engines, Jewelry And More

You need a new way of thinking, you need different training, you need different machines. This whole ecosystem is quite different from how we did things before.

The Benefits of Just-in-Time Inventory

Traditionally, raw materials and inventory of finished goods were considered assets. This notion has changed because of JIT and now inventory is considered as waste or dead investment, incurring additional costs.

Why PKI matters for the IIoT

Strong authentication of all devices within an IIoT network is one of the fundamental requirements for securing these networks.

How Data Management Can Keep the Supply Chain on Track

Although it's still in an evolutionary state, big data is already showing tremendous potential across nearly all industries, professions and applications.

The Future of 3D Printing and Sports

Every single product we manufacture from shafts, heads, shoulder pads and gloves at some point had gone through the 3D printing process. talks Industry 4.0 with Bob Mayer President, IMSI/Design

Industry 4.0 has been called the 'Fourth industrial Revolution', but unlike the first three, this revolution will be implemented at all sizes of manufacturing operations, not just large-scale corporate ones.

The Value of Virtual Simulation vs Traditional Methods

Overall, the benefits of virtual simulation outweigh traditional design methods on numerous levels, enabling product design timescales to be met more efficiently, and ultimately in a way that helps companies to innovate and grow.
