The Engineer: Researchers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have used a new 3D printing technique to produce complex nanoscale metal structures that are orders of magnitude smaller than previously possible.
Cao Chen via The Telegarph: Shanghai has installed a set of 3D printed bus shelters, believed to be the world's first, to serve a bus route in suburban Jinshan district
RS Components have created an interactive graphic, The Manufacturing Capitals of the World. which reveals who came out on top in 2010, 2016 and who is expected to dominate the sector in 2020.
Crown relies on FASTSUITE Edition 2 for offline programming of robotic welding cells.
Perhaps more than any other industry, manufacturing logistics requires a fluid and flexible model. Manufacturers-and, consequently, their transportation and logistics partners-need to be flexible enough to respond to sudden fluctuations in the marketplace.
This approach is superior to standard molding procedures because of the high level of scientific control utilized through upfront Design of Experiments (DoE), flow analysis, process monitoring, and quality control that can quickly detect and correct any process variations.
Deborah Weinswig for Forbes: One overall theme of next week's Magic event is moving into the future in terms of manufacturing fashion, reimagining retail and, ultimately, creating and adopting solutions to achieve speed.
Kata Karath for CoinTelegraph: 3D-TOKEN, a project of the Italian Politronica Srl startup wants to integrate it with Blockchain technology to create a 'one of a kind' glocal decentralized Just-In-Time Factory 4.0 matching the digital revolution of the 21st century.
Portfolio expansion ignites new wave of voxel-level innovation with low cost HP Jet Fusion 300 / 500 Series for functional parts in full color, black or white; Channel program evolution and new collaboration with Dassault Systèmes
The U.S. and China Invest Heavily in Industry 4.0 Technologies to be the World's Largest Manufacturer
The United States, the world's second largest manufacturer, with a 2017 industrial output reaching a record level of $2.2 trillion, will apply Industry 4.0 technologies to replace China as the world's largest manufacturer.
Ben Coxworth for New Atlas: When items are printed using the new technology, they're made up of voxels that incorporate either red, yellow or blue light-sensitive dye. All of the voxels take on their colors when the object is exposed to ultraviolet light.
Optimizing R&D labs usually involves vendor collaboration and planning to provide required versatility.
Chris Martin for Bloomberg Business Week: Even before Trump's tariffs, the U.S. panel maker underpriced Chinese rivals with a spray-on, energy-absorbing metal and largely automated factories.
While the entire fabrication industry is busy integrating IoT with their machines for data, machine to machine communication and intelligible foresight, let us not forget the place of origin for fabrication - concept designing and modeling in CAD
John Revill, Oliver Hirt for Reuters: "The last couple of years ABB was in the repair shop and now we are coming out. With political stability and digitalisation we have positive conditions and a better platform to participate in the upturn,"
