Electric vehicles (EVs) are changing the face of auto manufacturing. As concerns over climate change grow, zero-emission cars are becoming an increasingly crucial part of this industry. However, recent reports suggest the U.S. is falling behind in production.
Exposure to lead is both a ubiquitous phenomenon and an incredibly destructive one. Although OSHA's rules concerning lead exposure in the workplace have been updated several times, the agency is worried current guidelines don't go far enough.
By using a reorder point formula, manufacturers can ensure that their reorder points are set to optimal levels, providing effective reordering and helping streamline inventory management.
Transparency, sustainability, waste reduction and food safety are all significant concerns in need of addressing if food manufacturers want to stay relevant, competitive and optimally profitable, and relying on old strategies is no longer a viable option.
The Abbott Labs formula contamination scandal has many manufacturers reassessing their sanitation practices. To clean up a manufacturing plant, it is important to go above and beyond the call of duty.
The pandemic and ensuing disruption have revealed weaknesses in common manufacturing practices. It's become clear that what many organizations believed to be best practices weren't the best when facing events like COVID-19.
An increase in the price of raw materials, coupled with increasing uncertainty in manufacturing supply chains, has led many to rethink their stock management.
The past few years have proved challenging for the auto manufacturing industry. Automakers faced a slew of obstacles amid the COVID-19 pandemic, but few were as far-reaching and disruptive as the chip shortage.
Responsive supply chains are flexible, quickly adapting to demand shifts and disruptions. They can then mitigate challenges that affect industry competitors and minimize waste. Here are seven ways manufacturers can create an effective one.
Learn How To Protect Your Business with AI for Visual Inspection - Pleora Webinar Live April 6, 2022
This webinar will discuss how two manufacturers - a distillery and an electronics assembly operation - are using camera-based visual inspection to protect their brand and make manual processes repeatable, consistent, and traceable.
Circular economy practices that prevent goods from going to landfills - by encouraging reuse or recycling - can help. However, these practices aren't always easy to implement. Brands are experimenting with Industry 4.0 technology that may streamline the circular approach.
The manufacturing sector seems to be experiencing delays and disruptions far more than other industries. Part of this is because of others' reliance on it, and another reason is the commonality of critical flaws within supply chains.
Strategic Sourcing is about investing in alternate sources and deep supply-based analytics to squeeze every available part out of the worldwide supply.
Both autonomous manufacturing and hybrid autonomous manufacturing introduce a level of automation never seen before. The system does all the work, with machines and technology as a strong foundation, and people are relegated to monitoring and support.
While zero-emissions equipment and waste reduction strategies are crucial, sustainability is complex, involving far more factors than construction work itself. The manufacturers that produce building materials must also improve for the industry to become truly sustainable.

Single Pair Ethernet enables high speed communication up to 1 Gb/s in a cost-effective solution that reduces complexity, space and weight by transmitting over two wires rather than four of eight. In robotics and industrial applications, this weight reduction enables faster movements and lowered energy consumption while enabling data and power up to 50W over a single twisted pair. TE Connectivity is a proud founding partner in the Industrial Partner Network who is driving the adoption of Single Pair Ethernet technology.
