Smart Manufacturing

The August issue of Smart Manufacturing looks at the imperative of getting additive manufacturing into factories now, as well as how intelligent software drives Industry 4.0 forward. Our cover story reveals the potentially perilous consequences of lagging behind if manufacturers don’t put into practice AM technologies to help secure the country’s future economic security and position in the global economy. Slade Gardner, founder and CEO of Big Metal Additive, makes the bold claim that until we commercialize AM technology for use in industrial applications and develop the necessary infrastructure required to support it, the country will not achieve the manufacturing readiness level for the nation’s security. This issue also tackles the cybersecurity threat landscape, meaningful ways to address the diversity gap, and how deploying robots as a service can help scale up manufacturing operations without high capital investments or negative impacts on job security.
