BUILDING A FOUNDATION FOR DIGITAL MANUFACTURING

In the next decade, Digital Manufacturing technologies will allow companies to connect physical assets and processes by a "digital thread" - unleashing a seamless flow of data that will link every phase of the product lifestyle.

NEXT GENERATION DIGITAL FACTORY SOFTWARE

This white paper highlights the role of digital factory software for Industry 4.0. All-new ideas and concepts are required and new software tools for the digital factory are blazing the trail forward.

INFLUENCE OF POSITION MEASUREMENT ON ACCURACY IN 5-AXIS MACHINING

Productivity and accuracy are important attributes in the competition for machine tools. Five-axis machining provides considerable potential for increasing productivity. In many cases it permits higher metal removal rates than 3-axis machining. Production times can be significantly shortened thanks to a reduction of time required for resetting, for example, or through multi-operation machining in one setup. In any case, with increasingly complex workpiece geometry, 5-axis machining is becoming an indispensable part of the machining process.

"ROBOTICS FROM THE INVESTOR’S POINT OF VIEW: HOW TO PROFIT FROM THE RISE OF ROBOTS"

This paper evaluates whether Robotics equities traded on Stock Markets worldwide are a good investment opportunity or not. Robotics seems to become more and more attractive for both institutional investors (who act rationally and prefer medium to long term investments) and individual investors (who are driven by irrational behaviour and prefer short term investments). To forecast if robotics is an investment opportunity that could inflate a new financial bubble in the oncoming years, this paper compares robotics equities with Internet equities and analyses what happened during the Dot-com Mania in the 1990s. Many similarities come out as well as several key enabling factors that confirm robotics is a major investment opportunity for the next decade.

THE ROAD TO STATE-OF-THE-ART CAR PRODUCTION STARTS IN THE PRESS SHOP

Advanced air-driven vacuum technology allows automotive manufacturers to move towards smarter factories, and although energy-efficiency, reliability, productivity and safety may seem straight-forward, there are obstacles along the way. However, improvements made in press shops can act as a roadmap for the rest of the production in body shops, paint shops and assembly lines. In this white paper, we help you navigate the market of vacuum technology.

SMART PLASTICS FOR PREDICTIVE MAINTENANCE

How the Industrial Internet of Things has led to the development of next-generation smart plastics with sensing capabilities built-in

BURNER CONTROL FOR MANUFACTURING APPLICATION

Industrial mass flow control is a crucial part of burner and combustion control in manufacturing applications. Precise mass flow control of the fuel-to-air ratio to the burner is essential to produce quality products for the manufacturing industry including glass, metals, and ceramics manufacturing. Download our Burner Control for Manufacturing Application Tech Note to learn how precise mass flow control of the fuel-to-air ratio helps produce quality products.

CONFIGURE PRICE QUOTE (CPQ) FOR MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY 4.0: VALUES & BENEFITS

The Manufacturing Industry is facing many challenges today, from The Age of the Customer to the rise of Industry 4.0. A Configure-Price-Quote solution can help to solve some of those problems. Download the whitepaper to learn what a CPQ solution is, and the value proposition and benefits for manufacturers with complex configurations.
