At a high level, phase gate is a strategic approach to breaking down a complicated process into more manageable phases, which are then separated by checkpoints.
ETO is a type of manufacturing process in which a product is designed, engineered, and finished after an order has been received. The product is engineered to meet the specifications desired by the received order.
Nobody knows exactly what additional requirements will emerge in the field of connected manufacturing, but my personal feeling is that laser systems are a great way to prepare for whatever lies ahead. There are simply so many cases where if anything can do it, it's a laser!
Manufacturing sites of all kinds now find themselves potentially vulnerable to new types of cyber-attacks - the kinds that turn our own connected devices and equipment against us.
The benefits of additive manufacturing are hard to ignore. So, why hasn't it achieved wider adoption? There are a few important hurdles that AM needs to clear for the aerospace industry at large to get on board.
We compiled ten of our favorite RFID applications that give you ideas for possible use cases and what benefits you can expect to gain by using industrial RFID.
Manufacturing industry has to ensure that all the products being manufactured are of high quality, right specifications and perform the required functions. Two processes help in ensuring that - instrument calibration and validation.
While the connected factory demands new and emerging technologies to be overlaid and interwoven into the manufacturing environment, existing systems such as MES, ERP and ECM are also at the forefront of IoT enablement.
Booth #E9238 - EWI UltraThinSeal will present sealing demos on an ultrasonic reciprocating-style VFFS bagmaker, making real packages from thin, complex flexible packaging films.
Robotics, AI, and basic IoT digitization is the technology that will be needed to design smart factories. Abundant data and smart robotics will magnify a factory's output, while minimizing costs and defects.
Many companies believe and perpetuate the myth that AM is only a prototyping tool, innovators in a range of markets (e.g., aerospace, healthcare, consumer goods and more) are already using AM for production-grade manufacturing when design, performance and cost factors align
Healthcare Packaging EXPO shines light on achieving greater agility, record keeping and speed in maintenance.
The need for precise motion control is driven by many demands now placed on the line, from moving products around on the manufacturing floor to a variety of work stations to the logistics of moving the finished product through a facility.
Additive manufacturing enables not just personalisation but also, importantly, cost reduction and gains in success. There are sure to emerge many more potential applications.
Booth #N4936 - Dorner will be showcasing 6 different demos with 13 unique conveyor platforms. Two of the demos showcase our new redesigned AquaGard 7350 Series which is scheduled to launch this October.

Awe-inspiring power and superior flexibility is sheathed within the contoured casing of the HAWK MV-4000. This smart camera builds upon the previous generation by quadrupling processing power and achieving real-time trigger response using an FPGA. Its state-of-the-art algorithms make it an excellent tool for any industry, whether the requirement be code reading, code verification, inspection, guidance, gauging or a combination of all four.
