Three Ways Autonomous Machine Vision (AMV) Benefits Plastic Injection Moulding

Plastic injection moulding is a difficult application for machine vision. The highly reflective surface of plastics is hard to illuminate, and the fact that the same production line can create items of different colours and shapes is problematic for traditional solutions.

Time for manufacturers to make their packaging lines smarter

According to the latest report by PMMI Business Intelligence, there is a growing need for manufacturers to roll-out the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) across their enterprise. However, these companies should identify their existing "IIoT blind spots" before they do so.

How-To Guide on Mastering PACK EXPO Connects

With so many activities and over 2,600 scheduled demos taking place at PACK EXPO Connects, here is every preparation tool attendees need to ensure a successful event.

Retrofitting Legacy Equipment to Work Alongside New Technologies

It's a common misconception that manufacturers must purchase entirely new and expensive equipment to build the factory of the future. Instead, manufacturers should consider how they can modernize legacy equipment to make it Industry 4.0 ready and compatible with new tech.

How to Go Lean With Your Assembly Line Layout

Every operation has different goals and resources, so what lean looks like will vary. Still, there are some general concepts you can follow to create a lean assembly line.

Keeping an Eye on Electronics

Wherever there is electrical current, there are always electromagnetic pulses. They can have an extremely disruptive effect, e.g. on the ubiquitous electronic devices that surround us. This is why vehicle manufacturers need to verify the EMC of their products.

WHY 3D PRINTING - BENCHMARKING AGAINST TRADITIONAL MANUFACTURING

Facts and reality have often been a grey area in the world of 3D printing. Let's not forget that this technology in various guises has been around for well over 30 years. That long and it is still described as a disruptive technology?

3D Printing, Innovation, and Supply Chain Resiliency More Important Than Ever, Say Manufacturing Decision Makers

Global HP study finds that digital manufacturing can drive economic growth, faster innovation, and more sustainable production

The Next Era of Automation Is Intelligence

We are entering a new manufacturing era defined by AI, machine learning and vision, enabling us to teach machines to adapt and learn plans and move us toward a true "Lot Size 1" utopia. Automation's next era will be defined not around volume, but around intelligence.

Reshoring or…rightshoring? - Why a successful reshoring strategy must focus on quality

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the fragility of long, complex supply chains. It has also shown how reliant many US and European companies are on the overseas supply of critical items, bringing to the fore a long-debated issue-are we ready to reshore?

Upgrading to A Gas Mass Flow Controller Provides Greater Reliability for your Bioreactor

Due to the ever-evolving demands and critical and complex nature in the bio-industry, VA meters commonly used in this application are no longer suitable and bioreactor manufacturers are now turning towards mass flow

Innovative electric race car part shows potential for Electron Beam Melting in automotive

For the past three years, the NCAM's DRAMA research project has helped build a stronger additive supply chain for the UK's aerospace sector - an industry which has the largest number of small and medium sized enterprise (SME) companies in Europe.

The Best of Both Worlds: A New Take on Metal-Plastic Hybrid 3D Printing

Scientists develop a novel and surprisingly simple method to print 3D structures made of metal and plastic, paving the way for 3D electronics

Packaging is Essential in Time of Need

During these unprecedented times, it is of utmost importance to keep packaging lines moving, especially for manufacturers of essential consumer packaged goods (CPGs). There's no way around it.

3D Printing Assistive Devices for People with Disabilities

One of A3D's engineers met with the individual to best understand their specific situation and designed a handle that could attach to standard milk and juice cartons. A3D then used Simplify3D to print the handle.

Gocious - Product decision analytics

What are product decision analytics? Configurable products, including assemble-to-order, bring customization and choice to customers. They are also complex to plan. Each configurable product can have many possible variants, some of which are not buildable or don't meet the needs of the customer. Gocious enables you to analyze and define your product line features and configurations early, before detail design and production, to reduce time-to-market, waste, and rework.
