The demands on manufacturers are enormous: it is not only a matter of producing large quantities quickly, but also of maintaining particularly high quality standards. At the same time, increasing production capacity is usually time and capital intensive.
As product ideas become more complex, customers are looking for partners with advanced capabilities to help turn concepts into tangible goods reliably, efficiently and quickly. Flex's Paul Baldassari shares how simulation plays a critical role in this process.
Automating the traceability process is essential for manufacturers who want to avoid production bottlenecks, reduce production costs, and improve the marking quality to meet OEM traceability requirements.
Faced with tight quarters on a gearbox application, Texas-based machine builder turns to NORD DRIVESYSTEMS for help.
AGVs (automated guided vehicles) are essential tools in the current commercial and industrial transformation. But what challenges do they need to address?
Successfully Implement a Cobot into your Operations: Step 2 - What Role Do Integrators Play In This Process?
An integrator will definitely get the job done, but beware of a few potential pitfalls. Not all integrators are familiar with cobots. Those who treat the project like an industrial robot can negate many of a cobot's benefits.
Everything from pandemic production pivots to Suez Canal blockages shows the unpredictability of supply and demand. Unanticipated impacts to manufacturing processes are imminent, but there are three key considerations to mitigate the impact on business operations:
We have reached a tipping point to reengineer our end-to-end supply chains. Resilience across the entire value chain is critical. You must have the systems in place and ensure there is no over-dependence on any one partner, country, or region.
