Smart technologies and augmented reality are a growing part of the future of manufacturing. Shops must embrace this growing interaction between humans and computer systems in order to remain competitive in the future. Are you ready?
On this playing field, anything that can be connected, will be connected. Those who can adapt to connecting will thrive. Those who can’t, well . . .
Big Data analytics is taking over manufacturing and providing a totally new dimension to the value of research and trend analysis. Instead of only reporting past activities, data now predicts future events, foresees risk and helps shops build and deliver not only better products, but a richer overall experience for their customers.
Data analytics is a key technology that is creating new frontier for manufacturers to uncover new insights that can speed their decision-making and improve their business performance.
What if you could get real time orchestration between the power source, the accessories connected to it and all of the other key elements of your cutting system?
To dramatically shorten design-to-manufacture time, this advanced 3D simulator unveils powerful real-time visualization with collision detection that speeds tube bending program development so that shops can optimize their computer-controlled bending machines.
Their Southeast facility opens in Charlotte, NC, and their Southwest center opens in Dallas, TX.
This deal adds collaborative cloud-based ECM and automated accounts payable solutions to Epicor ERP solutions.
Their goal is to pioneer software innovations for digitally-networked manufacturing.
Agile Metal Technology software from Sculpteo deeply analyzes design compatibility for metal AM, fixes problems, automates complex modeling procedures, finds “best fit” processes and techniques, and predicts and recommends how to optimize design elements, including lattices, supports and post-processing workflows.
PrintRite3D INSPECT software from Sigma Labs uses new melt pool algorithms and enhanced QA documentation to verify even greater precision and repeatability for part qualification and certification.
By greatly simplifying work with geometry that combines facets, surfaces and solids, Convergent Modeling from Siemens PLM Software helps optimize part design for 3D printing, speed up the overall design process and provide scan-to-print functionality for more efficient reverse engineering.
