Connected Manufacturing is the ability to drive data that is meaningful to the cloud for big data analysis. The current trend in Industry 4.0 is to be able to sense specific points in end equipment to enable advanced analytics to be run on distributed edge computing devices to determine whether machines are operating within tolerances and predict a potential failure before it happens.
Predictive Maintenance Information Among New Features of Mitsubishi Electric Automation's Newest HMI

Michael Molitch-Hou for Engineering.com: At Formlabs' Digital Factory event in Boston, Mass., the firm unveiled the Form Cell, a system for batch production using Form 2 SLA 3D printers, and the Fuse 1, its desktop selective laser sintering (SLS) machine.
At its Digital Factory conference today, Formlabs, the designer and manufacturer of powerful and accessible 3D printing systems, announced several developments that will advance the future of manufacturing:
With improved magnetic field measurement sensors and advanced signal processing techniques, POSITAL has been able to offer devices with accuracy and dynamic response characteristics that rivaled traditional optical encoders in smaller, more robust, more cost-efficient packages.
EXAIR's new 1/2 NPT siphon fed atomizing spray nozzle atomizes a variety of fluids in a round spray pattern where no liquid pressure is available and heavy application of liquid is needed. This corrosion resistant type 303SS nozzle draws liquid into the airstream and mixes it internally while providing up to 24″ of suction height. Liquid can be easily adjusted to meet the needs of your application using the adjustment valve. The 1/2 NPT spray nozzle provides high liquid flow up to 68 GPH in a 6″ diameter round pattern. Also available in a patented no drip version to conserve liquids.
New Release Includes Enhanced Features and Two New Plug-Ins
Alex Knapp for Forbes: That push for innovation is one reason why Team Penske signed a deal with 3D printing company Stratasys earlier this year for technical support and services.
Sydney Baum-Haines for Minnesota Daily: The method has the potential to print tactile sensors onto prosthetic limbs or surgical robots.
Industry leaders from IBM, NVIDIA, Advantech, ARM and NXP Semiconductors present insights
Microscan releases powerful MicroHAWK Dual Boot Cameras enabling users to accomplish the widest range of reading, vision and verification tasks within a single unit. By building maximum capability into one camera, Microscan provides manufacturers, service providers and retailers with an unprecedented level of flexibility and an opportunity to maximize return on investment and decrease total cost of ownership.
The modular development approach of the sensor series has led to a broad range of variants that allows users to find the ideal 8 mm barrel sensor for their application, without having to compromise.
