All these companies are logistics and material handling vendors and times are changing in logistics and fulfillment
The Tesla factory in Fremont, California, and the Gigafactory in Nevada are monuments to science and progress.
Process and device will become inseparable. This is the direction were heading in and it is all powered by the capabilities of Industry 4.0.
The 3D printing field is expected to grow more than 14% annually to become an $8.4 billion industry by 2020
Understanding Permanent Marks and Methods for UDI Marking and Verification
Industry 4.0 capabilities enable flexible technologies to take the factory floor: self-driving vehicles offer flexibility, proactive planning, collaboration, and adaptive behaviours.
When it comes to 3D printing versus injection molding, the best production method for your parts will become clear when you can answer these questions regarding your desired quantity, quality and cost.
Since fewer companies have applied smart manufacturing patents in chemical, food, biotechnology, mechanical, transport, and machine tools industries, these sectors are relatively uncontested for perspective vendors.
Like a superstrong magnet, 3D printing will pull manufacturing away from the manufacturing hubs and redistribute it, product by product, among thousands or tens of thousands of smaller factories across the globe.
The Internet is not going to hit the factory all at once; the transition to global connectivity will be gradual. In the meantime, businesses have a chance to prepare their operations to integrate seamlessly with this new era of industry by taking steps now to implement digital, automated, connected devices and services.
Declining 3D printer prices will prompt innovations at a faster rate in downstream markets, making customization the new norm for a wide variety of products.
The challenge ahead is that not only manufacturing technologies will change drastically but the whole business environment, in which Japan may have to strive to overcome other than IoT super next generation automation.
Industry 4.0 Smart Factories and Smart Machines continue to drive dramatic efficiency improvements across the supply chain, within the factory and inside machines.
