Swarm Manufacturing: Robotic 3D Printers Divide and Conquer Industry 4.0 and Internet of Things technologies led to the development of swarm robots and additive manufacturing. Now, the two are coming together in a marriage that could change supply chains and manufacturing globally and, some researchers claim, could reach outer space.
New Podcast: Beyond the Lens: AI-Enabled Vision Systems From machine malfunctions to parts problems to human error, a lot of seemingly miniscule mistakes can occur in a manufacturing production line that can lead to costly defects. Coming to the rescue are smart industrial computer vision solutions that can see beyond the lens, using computer vision and AI for defect detection. Listen to our podcast with the Eigen Innovations Chief Revenue Officer who describes the value of these systems and answers the question: are we moving closer to zero-defect manufacturing?
Zero-Defect Manufacturing: Are We There Yet? From cosmetic flaws to machine malfunctions to production line errors, defects that occur on the factory floor are an ongoing and costly challenge for manufacturers. Smart industrial computer vision solutions are now coming to the rescue, as manufacturers tap AI-enabled machine vision that can help them move closer to zero-defect manufacturing.
IoT Gives the Oil Industry a Boost of Energy and Efficiency Oil is big business, so improving operations can result in big savings. Strategic planning enables energy companies to deploy cutting-edge IoT technologies that collect data from critical assets, even the hard-to-reach remote ones.
A Rare Opportunity: 3D Printed Meat Enters the Food Supply Chain The public’s cravings for plant-based meats get stronger every year. In the next half decade, the value for global meat substitutes is projected to reach $8.1 billion. While faux shredded meat for burgers and meatballs has sparked lots of attention from diners and Wall Street, Redefine Meat is taking an alternative approach to developing alt-meat steaks with an intelligent 3D printer.
How to Tap the Superpowers at the IoT Edge: A Podcast with OnLogic Co-Founder Lisa Groeneveld From gathering intelligence to providing predictive maintenance, IoT at-the-edge solutions are making an enormous impact in Industry 4.0. To find out what’s happening now in industrial computing, the IoT Integrator editors chatted with Lisa Groeneveld, Co-Founder and Chair of the Board at OnLogic. She describes how smart factories are tapping into data and automation at the edge, how the Internet of Things touches our lives every single day, and how her own company re-imagined operations in a COVID-19 world.
Rolling Out the RFID Carpet for Inventory Efficiency Sensors on rugs, bobbins, and manufacturing floors are helping carpet manufacturers prevent theft, speed production times, and reduce costs. With real-time data, sensors and IoT technologies make sure that no one pulls the rug out from under an industry expected to reach $112 billion globally by 2022.
How AI is Powering a Safe Return to the Workplace Real-time workplace data streamed from IoT sources such as cameras, temperature probes, and tags can now be collected and analyzed at the edge and processed using artificial intelligence (AI). The results offer immediate insights, and in some cases, AI can even take actions to detect and prevent health risks to customers and employees.
Industry 4.0: Understanding the Next Wave of Smart Manufacturing Industry 4.0 is well underway. The key drivers of this era—IoT, cloud, edge computing, and 5G—are reshaping product development and production. As a solution integrator, you play a vital role in innovation. Attend the Intel Industrial Summit 2020 to hear from experts, meet Intel ecosystem partners, and learn about all the technologies that are building the industry of the future.
Mid-Size Manufacturers Release Cobots into Automation Workstreams Collaborative robots, or cobots, offer reasonable price tags and customizable add-ons that give medium and smaller manufacturers a viable path toward automating their factory floors.
