Features 4/21/2011 Post a comment Sixteen precision 112.5-degree gearboxes regulate timing for the Octa-Kong pile driver that is being used to build the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge in China.
The Pneumatic-Electromechanical Connection
Features 4/21/2011 Post a comment Flexible pneumatic technology offers multi-position, force control and industrial network support for distributed architectures to bridge the abilities of standard pneumatic and electromechanical actuators.
Applying Lean to Product Development
Features 4/15/2011 Post a comment Rather than mapping lean manufacturing principles directly to product development, engineering teams need to consider information flow and knowledge capture to truly reduce inefficiencies and optimize the process.
Designing Systems for Remote Access
Features 4/14/2011 Post a comment Using standard industrial Ethernet technologies, forward-thinking machine builders can leverage an array of enterprise technologies that allow for their machines to more easily be used by partner service organizations increasingly relied upon by manufacturers of all sizes.
In System Integration, Software Rules
Features 4/14/2011 Post a comment To address machine builder needs, the automation industry is increasingly focused on delivering application-specific software that is highly tailored to specific machines and easy to use.
Computing Advances Permit New Integration Answers
Features 4/14/2011 Post a comment From robots that can handle heavy-duty, yet delicate tasks to the integration of complex, modular systems, systems integrators are increasingly able to solve machine and production system design problems through the application of advanced computer technologies.
Boeing Eyes Next-Generation Composites
Features 4/7/2011 1 comment Boeing's next-generation aircraft, developed with NASA, will use up to 90 percent composites and be delivered as an integrated assembly, eliminating the need for thousands of fasteners.
The 3D printing revolution seems to have a knack for quickly moving technology ahead by way of collaborative effort and even a little friendly competition -- all of course in the name of scientific advancement.
Advantech has launched a new series of motion-control I/O modules to meet the increased demands that come with more distributed industrial systems that require control of a growing number of axes and devices.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
