6 Ways Industry 4.0 Is Changing Machine Tools

One of the main tenets of Industry 4.0 is data collection. Machine tools will have sensors that will collect many different kinds of data, including data on how much the machine has operated, the conditions it has operated in and the condition of the components of the tool.

A Prescription for Trouble

In just the last 12-18 months, the culture and consequences of opioid drug use has supplanted internal theft, sexual harassment and other issues, emerging as the primary focus of most of the internal undercover investigations for manufacturing clients.

How Additive Manufacturing is Affecting the Industry

New powdered metal alloys and plastics are continuously in development. The safest bet for large manufacturers is to partner with material suppliers to ensure constant access to these new materials.

Specialized Sensors Perform in Extreme Environments

Sensors withstand extreme temperatures, pressures and aggressive chemicals.

Case Study: Volum-e Reduces Metal Support Removal by 50% Using Materialise e-Stage

The open diamond structure of the supports generated by Materialise e-Stage doesn't just make it possible to recover larger amounts of expensive metal powder, it also significantly reduces the risks related to HSE.

Industry 4.0 Is Heading to the Warehouse. Are You Ready?

Industry 4.0 will revolutionize and protect your warehouse and therefore your entire business. It will allow you to understand what is happening in real-time and know that any necessary changes will take place in real-time

Staying Ahead of the Curve: Mitigating Manufacturing Risks in 2018 and Beyond

Manufacturers have always operated with a certain level of risk. While that continues today and will always be the case in one form or another, what has changed are the specific types of risks that manufacturers face, as well as some of the strategies for managing those risks.

Top Smart Factory Capabilities Today for the Manufacturers of Tomorrow

Overall, the capabilities afforded by IIoT mean that these technologies are not just short-term investments or solutions to immediate problems; rather, they enable continuous improvement by providing companies with the ability to solve new problems as they arise-compounding the value of the investment over time.

Interview with Russ Whatcott, Director of innovation at Purple

We have to find a balance between interrupting production and trying something that will improve production. As we increase capacity at a rate that outpaces our marketing experts we hope to have a span of time where we'll be able to have some freedom to experiment and optimize.

The Benefits of Laser Cutting to the Design for Manufacturing Process

In terms of design for manufacturing, laser-cutting technology can have a beneficial effect on any product. Cost and quality are two major influences on the marketability of any product, and laser cutting allows for high-quality components at a lower cost overall, therefore making it possible to offer a more affordable, better quality product.

Stripping Costs out of Photo Resist Processing

Redesigned wet processing tool significantly extends photoresist stripping bath life, providing dramatic savings on chemicals and disposal costs.

Using Predictive Analytics in Manufacturing
