Packaging and labels contain key information on food products and drugs. A minor mistake on either could have serious repercussions that impact a product's safety, regulatory compliance and consumers' satisfaction.
Digitalising a production facility typically takes years of development, but one Sandvik tube site brought remote manufacturing to its stay-at-home workers in just two days.
Perhaps like no other, the field of microelectronics exemplifies the drive towards miniaturization, the obvious reduction in size of everyday household appliances and cell phones showing the extent to which products containing electronic components have been reduced in size.
Applying advanced intelligence and cognitive technologies likewise enables organisations to respond dynamically to changes in demand and customise product, ensure high product quality, and optimise production processes in real time.
2020 State of Manufacturing Report Finds Severe Levels of COVID-19 Disruption, Clear Industry Commitment to Digital Transformation
Hundreds of senior decision makers in healthcare, robotics, and other industries report damaging COVID-19 impact, focus on digital transformation, and emphasis on building supply chain resilience through agility
Investing in a stable manufacturing model requires innovation and a willingness to be flexible and try out new avenues for success. This starts with predictive maintenance and planning for the inevitable, then comes down to adapting with the times and economy.
• Exceptional ROI expected for companies who have embraced digital technologies amid COVID-19 • New normal will include hybrid models of digital technology with physical activity • COVID-19 has resulted in unprecedented levels of global collaboration
The circular composite footbridge is made from a fiber reinforced thermoplastic called Arnite® which combines high performance with circularity.
Supported by an integrated ecosystem, the technologies are composed of augmented reality, rapid application development, autonomous robots, digital simulation, and additive manufacturing.
Manufacturers, engineers, and designers are looking for processes that are less costly and have a smaller impact on the environment. Cast urethane manufacturing is one way that manufacturers and other stakeholders can do both.
In general terms, however, micro-optics are typically tiny lenses, beam-splitters, prisms, light-pipes, and other optical components in the range of 20 microns to 1 mm in size, or larger optical components with micron features.
Smith College Team From Massachusetts Wins CoVent-19 Challenge to Design New Ventilator for Developing World
-"We came into this not knowing anything about ventilators," SmithVent team lead says -Top 3 teams from over 200 submissions win on-demand 3D printing services from Stratasys
The recalls made in late-2019 was due to defective NADI (Non-Azide Driver Inflators). These defective airbags have inflators that could explode, which the manufacturers have narrowed it down to a faulty seal.
The factory in a box could be located in front of a hospital, next to a shopping center, or near a school. The integrated air-conditioning system with air purification filters makes production possible even in places with high risk of viral contamination.
A load bank can be an important asset in a variety of industries. Load banks are stationary or portable tools that mimic the expected electrical load on a power source in a commercial or industrial setting.

Humans and robots can now share tasks - and this new partnership is on the verge of revolutionizing the production line. Today's drivers like data-driven services, decreasing product lifetimes and the need for product differentiation are putting flexibility paramount, and no technology is better suited to meet these needs than the Omron TM Series Collaborative Robot. With force feedback, collision detection technology and an intuitive, hand-guided teaching mechanism, the TM Series cobot is designed to work in immediate proximity to a human worker and is easier than ever to train on new tasks.
