The augmented demand for the technology from several industrial verticals due to the increasing use of simulation in the design of industrial tools by OEMs has facilitated the penetration of 3D animation solutions worldwide
The U.S. has been seeing declines in skilled labor during the past few years as experienced and knowledgeable employees continue to retire while fewer are choosing employment in factories or skilled trades.
As situations and equipment are constantly evolving based on consumer demand and market disruptions, manufacturers need to respond quickly to capitalize on new opportunities, and this requires agile reconfigurations that maintain a prioritization of worker safety.
Prestigious 140+ Year Old University Delivers Advanced Engineering and Technical Training With Method X
Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences enriches Additive Design and Manufacturing Courses with MakerBot 3D printers. Students use METHOD X for a range of prototyping applications in research and development, industry thesis projects, and more.
With skill gaps growing wider and continued predictions of future job vacancies, manufacturers need to place employee skilling at the top of their strategic operating plans if they're going to maintain a productive workforce and compete on a global scale.
In a time when the whole world is re-evaluating the way they do business, it is essential that industries utilizing Smart Factory and automated solutions do not become over-reliant on technology to get the job done.
With a clear shift towards more digitally enabled roles and a growing need for more automation and/or robotics across all industries, this requires more skilled people within these environments.
MFG Day 2020 to Educate Students Across the Country on the Importance of the Modern Manufacturing Industry
The 8th annual and first virtual MFG Day, organized by The Manufacturing Institute with Microsoft, PTC and Salesforce, aims to inspire the country's next generation of talent to learn about the modern manufacturing industry throughout October
"The PLTW Engineering Program at Corona High School in Corona, California, is designed to set the students up to give them the best real world breadth education to be able to go directly into the manufacturing field..."
Sometimes the most difficult thing about AI is simply knowing where to start. Identifying potentially impactful use cases is one of the most cited roadblocks for organizations seeking to leverage AI in their business.
Manufacturers routinely export around the world and with it, the product's technical documentation. However, while products and the means of operating them are universally comprehensible, exactly how one should operate them isn't assured.
Promises of improved productivity, speed, and quality have industry leaders rushing to integrate automation, cloud computing, the Industrial Internet of Things, and other emerging technologies into workflows and supply chains.
As more experienced workers begin to reach retirement age, how can they attract the next wave of the workforce to get a younger generation into manufacturing roles? 2020 will be about enabling newer workers with the right technology and a data-driven mindset.
The UK has the lowest percentage of female engineer professionals in Europe, with countries such as Cyprus having nearly three times as many women in similar roles. This article will focus on women's relationship with the STEM and manufacturing industries.
Among the wealth of use cases for AI & ML in manufacturing, one rises above the rest in terms of feasibility and impact - predictive maintenance. Predictive maintenance addresses the age-old challenge of ensuring maximum availability of critical manufacturing systems.

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.
