Across America, manufacturing is changing from the traditional assembly line to the use of collaborative robots. By 2025, industrial robots are expected to perform 25 percent of tasks such as assembly, packaging and material handling.
"Instead of these old factories that are very laborious and have a lot of big machinery, manufacturing is going to look more like software, and have machines that are running off of digital files," said Jonathan Schwartz of Voodoo Manufacturing, a 3-D printing company in Brooklyn, New York.
Technology has a funny habit: just when you think it can't get better, it does. Take 3-D printing. The ability for a machine to spit out soft material in a precise pattern that almost simultaneously hardens into an actual thing you can use is pretty incredible.
But there's room for improvement. To date, low production speed and quality have limited 3-D printing to prototyping. Now, additive manufacturing company Carbon aims to change all that with a fast 3-D printer capable of printing finished products.
The Weekly Times
Whether it's fear of the unknown, comfort with what's familiar or a distrust of technology, many farmers are not using their tractor to its full potential.
Some are buying aftermarket accessories their tractor already comes fitted with, while others prefer to stick to the tried-and-true methods and controls they have always used, while much of the inbuilt, factory-added technology remains dormant.
But machinery experts argue it’s worth taking a minute to learn how the terminal screen works, what the joystick can do, and some of the infield management systems, especially considering that both time and money is at stake.
Cynthia Calvert-Copeland is such a believer in her industry that she offered this advice last Christmas for parents in search of that perfect gift.
Give them a 3-D printer.
Unconventional? Yes, but here's why: doing so would be more than just making a kid happy. It would expose the child early to the STEM world — science, technology, engineering and math — and allow a child's mind to stretch and think in different ways, much like exposure to a second language at an early age.
It's an idea that Calvert-Copeland, owner of Tulsa-based Professional Image Inc., believes would result in more people — especially women — entering the manufacturing industry and helping close its gender gap.
Modern Materials Handling
A new study from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville’s Global Supply Chain Institute identifies five technologies that companies should examine to ensure their long-term survival as a flood of new technologies in the past decade foretells a supply chain revolution.
The white paper looks at drones, driverless vehicles, 3-D printing, wearable technology and robotics.
Supply & Demand Chain Executive
A safe working culture is always a hot topic among supply chain professionals. But is it possible to bridge the gap between safety and operations?
“Everybody wants to make (their facilities) the safest place possible, but you’re going to look to justify a return on investment,” says Brian Neuwirth, vice president of sales and marketing at UNEX Manufacturing Inc. “It’s about finding the balance, and ultimately designing a system that’s going to make you efficient without justifying people’s safety.”
