The CEO of an artificial intelligence company discusses how AI affects workers and how AI can be deployed well.
Vecna Robotics’ David Clear and SVT Robotics’ TJ Fanning go into reasons manufacturers might want to consider automation and AI. They also look at how to test assumptions and scale with so many variables changing moment by moment. The adage “change is the only constant” has never been more apropos. So, it’s a great time to hear what separates a complex system from a complex adaptive system.
Catalytic CEO Sean Chou explains the difference between process automation and robotic automation, as well as what it looks like to use automation to augment existing workflows. Importantly, he describes how manufacturers can use automation to do more with less—to lessen supply chain pressures that have grown because of globalization and the Covid-19 crisis. And he details which processes manufacturers can automate to optimize resources and productivity.
Aerospace is thought of as the industry with some of the most advanced technology, including automation. However, especially in automation, that may not be exactly true. In this podcast, Bruce Morey senior technical editor for Manufacturing Engineering magazine talks with Rick Schulz of FANUC America about some of the challenges and misperceptions in using automation more fully in aerospace manufacturing. Mistakes to be avoided, such as simply replacing humans with a robot, and how to use collaborative robots. The main message is that employing automation to its fullest requires a systematic approach to the entire manufacturing process.
New printer aims to provide designers affordable, office-friendly, full-color 3d printing to validate new product designs quickly.
A panel of experts and startups in medical 3D printing provided insights into efforts to help the COVID-19 pandemic in a webinar organized by 3DHEALS
Mayo Clinic’s 3D Anatomic Modeling Laboratory is inventing how to use 3D printing for surgical planning and instruction. People undergoing new, uncommon or complex surgeries at Mayo Clinic may benefit from access to the clinic’s expertise in 3D anatomic models. The models the lab builds also helps with patient and medical education.
Global engineering company Renishaw teamed up with two inventive technology concerns to show how metal additive manufacturing (AM) can make lightweight spinal implants that mimic the mechanical properties of bone.
Patient care is sometimes just as much about engineered devices or implants as it is about specialized surgical care or drug therapy. The Mayo Clinic, the world-renowned specialty care facility, not only has doctors, nurses, and clinicians with the skills and willingness to handle tough cases.
