3D Printing and Sustainable Auto Manufacturing: A Glimpse into the Future

The excitement around 3D printing in the automotive industry is easier to understand in light of growing sustainability needs. While vehicles themselves may be the most obvious target for emissions reductions in this sector, the production side needs improvement, too.

Audi Sport Accelerates Design and Production Processes with trinckle Software and UltiMaker 3D Printers

When the new Audi E-Tron GT was introduced, the Audi Sport BĂ'llinger Höfe location in Heilbronn, Germany, rapidly needed almost 200 new tools, jigs and fixtures for its production. Designing these tools costs a lot of time.

CLEANING UP AM'S DIRTY SECRET

The fact that post processing metal parts requires such intensive manual intervention throws up a series of follow-on problems. These include part-to-part quality inconsistencies, repetition fatigue, significant health & safety risks.

The Use of Gearboxes in Warehouse Automation

It's crucial to prioritize data management before jumping into implementing analytics. Because different departments and processes produce different data types, a common data language is a good place to start to help structure the data and break down silos.

Thermal Imaging Technology in Lithium-ion Battery Manufacturing

Thermal imaging technology enhances battery quality during manufacturing by identifying material discrepancies and thickness variations in battery electrodes. This ensures that only high-quality electrodes are used, improving battery performance and safety.

Selecting the Right Adhesive-backed Mounts for the Best Use

Adhesive-backed mounts, or "sticky-backs" as they are sometimes referred to, come in three types: rubber-based, acrylic-based, and high bond (which is an enhanced acrylic-based adhesive). Each of these are unique and provide their own set of strengths and drawbacks.

AM Produced Mandrels Provide New Opportunities for Composite Manufacturers

Mandrels are an essential tool when making hollow composite parts and components. During the manufacturing process, the mandrel is inserted into the end of a tube or pipe and held in place while the object is being formed around it.

Connecting Robot Accessories to Any Industrial Network

Robots need accessories to work efficiently. But what's the easiest way to connect the accessories to factory networks? The easiest way is to use HMS Networks' ready-made Anybus products, as RSP found out.

How the Additive Manufacturing Industry Emphasized End-Use Part Production at Rapid + TCT 2023

For the companies releasing new printers at RAPID, they shared a common theme: higher productivity. These printers were designed to increase end-user print productivity, whether it be higher speed, more power, or larger build volumes.

Being a Good Steward

Wastewater treatment is serious business. Gearboxes from NORD DRIVESYSTEMS help this small community process up to 15 million gallons of it daily, without fail, with no surprises.

Benefits of Gearbox Customisation for OEMs

A customised gearbox not only increases the life-span of existing hardware, but it can be designed to evolve and develop alongside the needs and goals of the business.

Metal Additive Manufactured Parts for Racing Car

In metal powder bed fusion process the quality and of the powder raw material are of paramount importance, as the process relies on thin layers of metal powder being deposited and melted to produce metallic parts.

Total Cost of Ownership - Unwrapping the Hidden Costs of Manufacturing

When thinking about costs of a part, many engineers and purchasers tend to only have one thing in mind: production costs. Like this, new technologies such as 3D printing/AM are often seen as expensive. However, production costs are just the tip of the iceberg.

The Case for Mass Finishing for AM Parts and Components

Mass finishing is wrongly regarded by many as a relatively crude technology. However, it needs to be understood that it has been an established surface finishing technique for many decades for a reason.

5 Advantages of Using EtherCAT for Motion Control

EtherCAT is proven to optimize machine performance with its deterministic performance, flexible topology, and diverse set of features. To better understand why users should use EtherCAT, let's review its history, how it works, and the problems it solves.
