US manufacturing strengthened in February, attaining its best level in 30 months, the Institute for Supply Management said today.
Scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, designed a small robot capable of performing multiple vertical jumps in a row and jumping off walls—making it the most vertically agile robot yet.
It’s not often you get the opportunity to witness rapid, life-impacting change, but for those of us who have been in the 3D printing industry over the last few decades, we have witnessed just that. In the last 20-plus years, 3D printing has changed the definition of manufacturing from merely “one-size-fits-all” to “customized” production and from “high-volume” to “high-complexity/low-volume”—a startling paradigm shift that has enabled many new applications for the manufacturing industry.
While our customers in the energy sector are not exactly singing “Happy Days Are Here Again,” they are much more hopeful than they were a few years ago when the activity went flat, driven by low oil prices.
Design for manufacturing has been around for decades, but industry insiders say the next few years will be critical as technologies like additive manufacturing (AM) and virtual reality (VR) shape the future of the industry.
In 2015, American Rheinmetall Systems (ARS) turned to the Greater Boston Manufacturing Partnership (GBMP) for assistance in developing a lean manufacturing program within its facility. ARS needed to streamline its operation and efficiency in order to free up workers to take on additional defense contracts.
SME, a nonprofit organization that supports the manufacturing industry, and Stratasys Ltd. (Nasdaq:SSYS), the 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions company, have announced the winners of a co-sponsored student additive manufacturing competition held during the 53rd annual SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference.
Allied Machine & Engineering, a leading tooling manufacturer of complete holemaking solutions, has launched its new engineering training department, which provides hands on education programs for new employees, end users and distributors.
Manufacturers are always looking for ways to keep ahead of the competition. And with advancements in bonding technologies, they’ve been able to explore new ways in doing just that. Industrial-grade, double-sided acrylic foam tapes such as 3M™ VHB™ Tapes are increasingly being used in place of more traditional mechanical fasteners such as screws, rivets, bolts, and welds—in order to permanently bond components together.
