Delcam has added a new level to its PS-Moldmaker drawings—3D. The highly automated system allows designers to take their traditional 2D drawing skills and apply them to drawings in 3D. PS-Moldmaker is integrated with powerSHAPE hybrid modeling program. Using these two programs together enables the user to produce non-standard components or mechanisms. It also allows companies to eliminate 2D models and instead develop an entire mold in 3D by one team. For more information, visit http://rbi.ims.ca/3851-512.
Dow Chemical and several other companies have launched a program in Omaha, Neb. to divert about 36 tons of plastics from landfills in its first phase, and convert it into energy used for cement production.
Both traditional automation companies and startups are developing technologies to improve processes on the factory floor, while smart sensors and other IoT-related technologies are improving how products are handled during transport and across the supply chain.
