The creation of the Force American Made (FAM) machine shop at John Force Racing (JFR) is a story about turning tragedy into triumph.
FAM manufactures tens of thousands of parts per year that range from small consumable parts to super chargers, engine blocks and cylinder heads.
Steel mills are rich in data, and learning algorithms only get better as they learn. Steel mill owners stand to improve their quality and margins dramatically from AI investment. AI can also reveal unexpected business opportunities as well as operational efficiencies.
Russell Compact Sieve® paired with innovative ultrasonic technology increases throughput and prototype iteration at New Balance
In a recent project, Renishaw used its additive manufacturing (metal 3D printing) expertise to help the University Hospital of Wales (UHW) treat a patient who suffered cancer of the lower jaw and required removal of the affected region coupled with reconstructive work.
In order to service the four lanes, a stroke in excess of 40 inches was required and the lane changer needed to index on average every 10 seconds or less while maximizing time available for product flow.
Casey created a 3D printer that uses pellets instead of filament. This was no easy feat, and the design within the pellet feeder is the "secret sauce" that finally enabled Casey to develop her perfect soles, which are used in their line of Athena and Artemis sandals.
Crown relies on FASTSUITE Edition 2 for offline programming of robotic welding cells.
Offline Programming Software is Single Solution for Robotic Hammer Peening of Automotive Stamping Dies
Total programming time for one workpiece, including the time to import a CAD file and create a toolpath, was reduced from 12 hours to only 3.5 hours.
TOSHULIN gains a competitive advantage thanks to the displayed data of the visualization and the company knows how to use it cleverly and effectively. The attractive and user-friendly visualization displays the necessary output data for the end-users to further analyse.
In the current climate of industrial trucking products, truck manufacturing companies are striving to improve their products in more efficient ways than ever.
In addition to production metrics, manufacturing equipment statuses are also displayed. Operators or maintenance workers can quickly see and react if a machine is operational, being resupplied or out of service based on the icons and colors associate to the equipment on the display.
Glebar was able to provide a zero defect fully automated no operator automotive cell, which is poised to run millions of parts per year - unattended.
Recognizing the need for connectivity, data access, and scalability, executives at HIROTEC worked to develop a competitive strategy to capitalize on the potential benefits of the Internet of Things (IoT).
Measuring the number of perfect picks, volume of picks, savings by replacing traditional RF guns are data points that allow 3PLs (third party logistics) to quantify both a rapid ROI (return on investment) and TCO (total cost of ownership)
The food production manufacturer previously used hydraulic motors to drive the conveyor system. However, the open environment of the application presented several mechanical issues for the motors.
