Blockchain has massive value in supply chains, and supply chains are the cornerstone of every manufacturing business. As such, increasing supply chain efficiency via the implementation of this technology will mean manufacturers can improve their material ordering process...
In its recent 'Exponential technologies in manufacturing' study, Deloitte observes that organisations from every industry now face mounting pressure to transform and make the shift from product-centric business models to capture other sources of value
As consumers and participants in the supply chain demand greater transparency, blockchain has the potential to transform how information about a food product flows from farm to fork to ensure quality and safety by adding greater visibility and efficiency to the process.
3D digital manufacturing inherits several privacy and security-related challenges with multiple stake holders. Blockchain technology can be used for enabling data governance, data provenance, data auditability and data validation in 3D printing.
Kata Karath for CoinTelegraph: 3D-TOKEN, a project of the Italian Politronica Srl startup wants to integrate it with Blockchain technology to create a 'one of a kind glocal decentralized Just-In-Time Factory 4.0 matching the digital revolution of the 21st century.
Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern?
Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
