Top Article from2019 - Polymers, Productivity and Policy: 3D Printing Trends in 2019

For 2019, we expect new users will continue to find their way towards additive manufacturing, and we'll see an increasing number of companies shifting their production to AM or adding AM into the mix. New product introductions will bring success and failure...

Top Article of 2019 - Digital Transformation in the Industrial Sphere

Hyper customization, smaller batch runs, a shrinking labor pool, energy availability, and global competition are factors that are increasing in importance and are also pointing to a much-needed new direction that companies will need to take in order to remain relevant ...

Manufacturing Trends for 2020 according to Pricefx

In 2020, manufacturers are one tweet away from disaster. Those firms with a global footprint are particularly vulnerable in 2020. Gabriel Smith, the Chief Evangelist of Pricefx, insists to compete in 2020 (and beyond), manufacturers need to be prepared to react immediately to changing market conditions much quicker than the decade just ending.

Deloitte 2020 Manufacturing Outlook: The Keys to Weather the Storm

One of the trends we've identified is the interest by diversified industrial companies to streamline businesses and realign around key markets or customer segments to further drive results. We're seeing an increase in mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures as these companies recalibrate their capabilities.

Automated AM Post Processing and Industry 4.0

There is real momentum behind the drive towards the use of AM as an alternative to conventional manufacturing processes. However, with this drive comes a necessary focus on and scrutiny of the entire manufacturing process chain surrounding AM.

Innovative Manufacturers Should Embed Automated Systems in Production Processes

Precision tools improve process control and result in higher product quality.

3D Printing A Game-Changer For Car Makers

With its potential to transform the way products are designed, developed, manufactured, and distributed, 3D printing is expected to grow into an $8 billion market for the automotive industry by 2024.

Promoting Safety & Sustainability in the AM Process Chain

From a 6-mile high view of the world, the AM process is less wasteful than conventional subtractive manufacturing processes, and allows for improved resource efficiency.

The Business Case for Metal AM

The growing number of industrialisation questions are indicative of a growing maturity in the marketplace. AM machines are moving out of prototyping applications and research laboratories and into mainstream production manufacturing.

MFGWatch 2019 Report

Sixty-five percent of supplier companies said they received more work in 2018 than in the previous year-a huge jump from the MFGWatch 2016 results of 40 percent (the last time an MFGWatch report was published).

The Evolution of Design Rules

The industry consistently says that, to support growth, it needs education and training. Part of that is for a manufacturer to understanding AM but part of that is for AM experts to understand manufacturing.

Is Independent Interconnectivity a Thing?

There is no doubt that sensors have enabled the rapid uptake of IIoT. The smarter the sensors are getting, the more impressive the IIoT realm is becoming.

3D Printing Industry Outlook

At the factory level (for tooling, jigs, fixtures, molds, and other means of production) it will allow faster, cheaper, and better-designed parts production. Eventually, 3D printing will transition into end-use parts and 3D printers themselves will become part of factories.

A Disruptive AM Technology for Micro Manufacturing

Today, a new technology exists at the intersection of AM and micro manufacturing, opening up the possibility for manufactures to take advantage of the inherent advantages of AM while achieving micron level accuracy over a build envelope of 5 x 5 x 10cm.
