The rapid prototyping and 3D printing plastic parts for wind tunnel testing became a well-established model but Katsanis wondered "why not do this with metal"?
Addressing gaps, potential risks and islands of automation on a staged basis minimizes costly disruptions to operations and provides greater flexibility as equipment and data needs evolve over time
If your business has been walloped by the various challenges in the sector, converting the company to an employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) could be a way forward.
This article examines the ways in which companies looking to achieve significant product miniaturization need to approach their product development process, and how they need to adapt their thinking when embracing micro molding.
The concept of full automation could be daunting, especially considering the cost, time and disruption that go into building a brand new factory or warehouse - this just isn't a viable option for a large proportion of businesses.
While a laser diode generates photons (light) it create a lot of heat as well, so that heat has to be distributed and that is why there are not so many powerful laser diodes on the market.
For the last four years of SAE competition, UVic Formula Motorsport team has been using 3D printed oil pans that were purposely engineered to be manufactured by CRP USA's laser sintering 3d printing process and Windform® TOP-LINE composite materials.
Back in 2017, the International Data Corporation (IDC) predicted that 30 percent of commercial robotic applications will be in the form of Robots as a Service (RaaS) by 2019. Was this forecast accurate?
