The U.S. has been seeing declines in skilled labor during the past few years as experienced and knowledgeable employees continue to retire while fewer are choosing employment in factories or skilled trades.
Rugged, reliable, and thermally optimized, NORD's industrial gear units are ready to take on the most demanding industrial drive technology requirements.
Change in the technology buzzword blizzard - Automation specialist explains the latest trend: hyper-automation
Hyper-automation, as the name may suggest, relates to excessive automation. This is something that Elon Musk pleaded guilty to in 2018 after the production line for the Tesla Model 3 came to a complete halt for four days.
Mechatronics and industrial automation are two fields that overlap to some extent. But they have their differences, too. Here's a definition of each, plus how they benefit the manufacturing sector.
Here Jonathan Wilkins, director at EU Automation, discusses the issues and solutions surrounding retrofitting legacy equipment with smart technology.
Accurate long-term predictions - Freudenberg Sealing Technologies' new method shows how static seals actually age
Freudenberg Sealing Technologies has now developed a method that takes material changes at the molecular level into account when predicting the long-term durability of seals.
We've all heard the phrase, 'like a kid in a candy store'. Visiting automation trade shows can leave even the calmest visitors eager to get their hands on some automation action. Before parting with your cash, Claudia Jarrett suggests three important questions to ask.
Industry 4.0 is changing systems architecture across all domains in industrial automation. Upcoming edge computing architectures use virtualization for scaling dedicated applications with deterministic key performance indicators (KPIs) on a heterogeneous operating systems.
IoT and connected devices are making the development process more transparent. The technology also allows plant managers and overseers to accurately review operations, which leads to a more positive direction for everyone.
Now, with connectivity, controls, process integration and automation, job shops and manufacturers can harness more uptime from their CNCs. Visit more than 350 companies in the Metal Cutting Pavilion.

The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
