Iona Bain for IG: D printing has been called the 'third industrial revolution' and it has a market that's expected to be worth $35 billion in 2020. That doesn't make 3D printing an easy target for investors. Here's our guide to investing in the sector.
Pneumatic circuits can be safe when carefully examined and implemented. The designers can use the appropriate level of reliability based on their assessment of the risk and frequency of the potential risk.
Jessica Twentyman for Internet of Business: Internet of Business presents four key technology trends that will help the smart factory deliver on its efficiency and responsiveness goals in 2018.
Sara Murphy for GreenBiz: 3D printing techniques, however, could be almost universally preferable, if industry steers in the right direction. And clear pathways exist for maximizing the technology's green potential.
Carnegie Mellon University Extends Research into 3D Micro-Additive Manufacturing with Optomec Aerosol Jet Printed Electronics System
Developing novel methods to create next generation manufacturing processes for sensors, antennas and energy harvesting devices
More than a technological revolution, the connected factory is a total reorganization of the approach to production, using existing tools and placing a greater reliance on networks.
Diogo Costa for KnowTechie: There are several aspects that characterize Industry 4.0, including (but not limited to): automated robots, additive manufacture, simulation, horizontal and vertical system integration, industrial IoT...
Eric Wildstein for Gaston Gazette: Students can apply these earned credentials toward earning an associate degree at an institution of higher learning or to find employment in the manufacturing and industrial workforce.
In absence of Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES), reporting is purely historical and is often available too late to take action on its findings. MES enables non-conformances to be addressed in the present and minimize their potential impact.
Offline Programming Software is Single Solution for Robotic Hammer Peening of Automotive Stamping Dies
Total programming time for one workpiece, including the time to import a CAD file and create a toolpath, was reduced from 12 hours to only 3.5 hours.
Adi Gaskell for Forbes: Such a network ensures you not only have the technological skills required but also the cultural and softer factors that are so important.
2017 - Most Popular Article - Simply put, "old line" manufacturing is gone, and in its place is a new world of computer-assisted, complex factories, in which it's no longer enough to have a great work ethic, physical stamina, and the ability to follow orders.
One of the main tenets of Industry 4.0 is data collection. Machine tools will have sensors that will collect many different kinds of data, including data on how much the machine has operated, the conditions it has operated in and the condition of the components of the tool.
Huawei Wireless X Labs Sets up Connected Factory SIG to Explore 5G Applications in Smart Manufacturing
The Wireless Connected Factory SIG has brought together partners in the field of smart manufacturing to conduct further research and promote extensive applications of 5G communication technologies in Industry 4.0.
Andrew Moore for Upstate Business Journal: The new partnership includes a program that aims to develop better manufacturing techniques for home appliances, foster public-private collaboration, and encourage more students to pursue advanced manufacturing as a career.
