DS3 is a self-contained start-to-finish production facility for vertical and horizontal machining centers and double-column machining centers. This is the third smart factory investment by Okuma.
The chemicals manufacturing sector has enjoyed positive growth and margins in the last few years. But that's no reason to believe that a slump can't hit the industry in the near future.
Instrumental is attacking the 20 to 35 cents of every $1 spent in manufacturing that is wasted. That waste comes from literal scrap at the various factories in the process, returns, mistakes, extra experimentation, travel, and engineering time that wasn't used efficiently..
Mobile robots move around a factory floor independently without any cages in order to perform their tasks. Despite not having fencing around them, mobile robots are completely safe to use alongside humans in the workspace.
Workplace safety is important everywhere, but manufacturing environments with heavy equipment and specialized employees and workflows may have even more to gain from developing more robust safety, training and incident response protocols.
Laser Metal Sintering is a material processing technique which considers binding (sintering) pulverized particles (powder) together due to a diffusion of its micro-melted outer layers into each other produced by a pulsed laser source.
Taking a predictive approach to maintenance is key to maximising uptime, and with Industry 4.0 transforming the manufacturing landscape, now is the time for design engineers to look to digital solutions to reduce machine downtime and ensure consistent levels of efficiency.
Digitizing manufacturing and the supply chain require that technologies can connect assets, collect data and extract information. Our 0G network enables this by allowing real time data access and visibility. As a result, we help customers transform information into action.
In the emerging servitization-centered economy, where a growing number of companies are shifting from selling products to selling access to and the outcome those products deliver, manufacturers are redefining the way they do business
Q&A with Tom Quartararo, Mechatronics Engineer at Ultra Motion
One of the biggest issues organizations often have is that they're not actually clear about which items classify as hazardous in the first place. While it's quite obvious that some things could be dangerous, there are a lot of items which don't immediately seem to ...
Booth #603 - This year we will be showcasing Direct Metal Laser Sintered (DMLS) copper parts, high requirement/production DMLS parts, and a new color for SLA parts.
Modernizing existing production lines from Bosch while reducing the number of central stations from three to two: Machine manufacturer GAteK has achieved this feat thanks to pneumatics from Emerson's AVENTICS™, which cuts cycle times in half.
Whether you're following standard OSHA laws or their newest guidelines, choosing one of the innovative approaches to safety below can allow you to meet these in addition to going beyond what is expected.
According to supply chain and logistics consulting firm MWPVL International, when the storage capacity of a warehouse distribution center surpasses the 85% utilization level, there is also a reduction in productivity.
