Manufacturing and Processing: Smart Moisture Measurement Technology Continually Optimizes Product and Process Quality
Instant measurement and production line correction is enabled since calculations are performed in real-time inside the sensor and data is analyzed multiple times per second with integrated software
Until now, manufacturers have been dipping their toes and getting familiar with the technology, using it to create prototypes rather than final products. But that is changing. It's only a matter of time before AM makes the leap from prototyping to manufacturing.
Additive Manufacturing is not intended to replace conventional or traditional manufacturing, but rather compliment it. When implemented correctly, AM offers manufacturers real flexibility and design freedom while enabling more resilient and robust value chains.
Facts and reality have often been a grey area in the world of 3D printing. Let's not forget that this technology in various guises has been around for well over 30 years. That long and it is still described as a disruptive technology?
In spite of advancing digitalization, the following still applies: Manual workstations are indispensable, because automation is not always profitable with small batch quantities or complex processes.
A look at manufacturing and the COVID-19 pandemic shows the comparison to WWII is an apt one. From victory gardens to discussions of shared sacrifice to ramping up production of critical supplies, the parallels between the health crisis and WWII are hard to ignore.
Using proven software and hardware, Siemens has developed a unique workplace distancing solution that helps manufacturers to simulate and manage employee exposure risks while enabling productivity throughout their facilities
From challenging times comes opportunity, and British manufacturers must embrace this in order to navigate through the 'old norms' into the 'new now'. Below I explore the key trends emerging in the sector.
According to a recent report from Boston Consulting Group (BCG), "Quality 4.0 Takes More Than Technology," nearly two-thirds of manufacturers believe that Quality 4.0 will significantly affect their operation within five years.
Design & Manufacturing, ATX West, MD&M, Plastic West and West Pack take place in Anaheim, CA February 11th - 13th. This ManufacturingTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years events.
Some people confuse AR with virtual reality. Virtual reality (VR) is a complete immersive experience that shuts out the real world. Augmented reality superimposes a computer generated (CGI) video onto a camera captured video.
Kennedy High School team wins Project MFG™: Next Generation Manufacturing™ Challenge held in Sierra College Advanced Manufacturing lab.
Transitioning to a biobased manufacturing economy has been demonstrably difficult to date; however, there are signs that governments are introducing policy initiatives to overcome some of these challenges.
"Everything done to this vehicle was something that our students can learn in a class today, and it was done on equipment that is being used in the workplace today," said Advanced Transportation Center Director Al Lecz.
FROM FANTASY TO REALITY: FORD'S NEW $45 MILLION ADVANCED MANUFACTURING CENTER BRINGING THE FUTURE TO LIFE - TODAY
Ford, which leads North American automakers in manufacturing capacity utilization, will ramp up prototyping including 3D printing, augmented and virtual reality, robotics and much more at its new facility before bringing tested innovations to auto plants across the globe
