Wynright, a wholly owned subsidiary of Daifuku North America Holding Company, will be hosting two educational seminars at the upcoming ProMat show from April 3-6, 2017 at Chicago's McCormick Place.
Gilles Roucolle and Marc Boilard for Forbes: Â The race is on to use 3D printing to produce small-series parts, on demand and on location, for industries from aerospace to automotive. At stake is the shape of a $400 billion market for spare parts manufacturing and logistics. And those changes are not 20, or even 10, years out - they are happening now. Using models built through computer-aided design (CAD), 3D printing can produce virtually any solid object, even those with complex architectures, and in a range of materials, including plastic, ceramic, and metal. Currently, about half of 3D printing - also known as additive manufacturing - is used for prototyping. This saves manufacturers time and money, because they can develop new components or products on-demand, with less waste and without expensive tools and molds. Â Cont'd...
Stratasys Expands Its 3D Printing Gamut with Two New Material Advances: FDM Carbon Fiber-Filled Nylon Capable of Replacing Metal, and Extra-Flexible, Tear Resistant PolyJet Family
-FDM Nylon 12CF with very high stiffness-to-weight ratio is capable of replacing metal components in a range of prototyping, tooling and end-use applications -Agilus30 rubber-like material line has superior durability, tear resistance and elongation-at-break properties for design verification and prototyping
Tim Fryer for Eureka: Head in sand time is over – Industry 4.0 is happening and is here to stay. In this article, the first in a series, Tim Fryer spoke to some of the leading automation companies about what Industry 4.0 means to design engineers. The elevator pitch for Industry 4.0 would be something like ‘it is the digitisation of manufacturing and the supply chain’. The three previous industrial revolutions started with steam and mechanisation, progressed onto automated assembly lines at the start of the 20th century, and then the introduction of computers to the work place in the 1970s was the third.

ST Robotics recently released a high-speed version of its five-axis vertically articulated R17 robot arm at the low price of $18,600.
So how do you measure the productivity of your manufacturing equipment? How do you gain insight to improve your processes? The answer is Overall Equipment Effectiveness, or OEE.
The long-term objective of the program is to continue providing support to system integrators and OEMs in our target industries, and to also expand into new verticals.
The roadmap provides a snapshot of the current additive manufacturing standards landscape and identifies 89 "gaps" - 19 of them high priority - where no published standard or specification currently exists to address a particular industry need. In 58 of those cases, additional research and development (R&D) needs are identified.

Emulate3D software helps you model and test your AMHS solutions rapidly. Use Demo3D to create running models quickly, then generate videos, stills, or view the models in virtual reality at the click of a button. Sim3D enables you to carry out experimental test runs to select optimal solutions and the most robust operating strategy, and Emulate3D Controls Testing is the best way to debug your PLCs offline, and off the project's critical path. Connect to major PLCs, import CAD, and plug into HTC Vive and Oculus Rift to produce awesome models!
