Continuous Insulation Resistance Testing Boosts Motor Productivity

For decades, plant personnel have performed insulation resistance tests with handheld megohmmeters to prevent motor failures that lead to costly unplanned shutdowns, failure-to-produce penalties and rewinding repairs. However, these tests only provide a “snapshot” of motor health. In a matter of days, motor windings and cables exposed to moisture, chemicals, contaminants or vibration can be compromised and fail at startup.

Hybrid Additive/Subtractive Tech Changing the Face of Design and Manufacturing

Some of the key trends in manufacturing are brought about by convergence of the design and manufacturing industries. With manufacturers under more pressure than ever to deliver better products faster and at lower cost, the need to connect and automate design and manufacturing processes to reduce iterations, errors, and delivery times is becoming critical.

Turning Data Into Decisions

How do we turn all the data collected at each step of the manufacturing process into something usable?

Women Inspire in 3D Printing and Beyond

While looking for inspiration for this column,Ilene Wolff came across a rousing magazine headline. “Why the Women in 3D Printing Innovator Award Is Important,” the TCT Magazine headline read.

Price, Performance, Potential – Closing the Gap in 3D Printing

Rapid prototyping is a staple of every designer and engineer’s workflow—essential for testing new concepts, verifying designs, and meeting increasingly aggressive time-to-market goals. Regardless of the industry or product, all engineers must consider the speed, accessibility, cost, and output of these additive manufacturing equipment.

EDM Performance Up, Manufacturing Costs Down

Manufacturers of products as diverse as die and mold, aerospace and medical devices are gaining advantage with improved wire and sinker electrical discharge machines (EDM).
