Real-time, visibility on materials, process, or machine interactions can be leveraged to fix real-time production problems by quickly identifying the source, enable product recalls, or validate the end product for customers. A contact-less solution based on RFID, Wi-Fi and sensor technologies will accomplish all this without impacting the manufacturing process.
Rapid manufacturing's benefits extend far beyond the upfront savings on tooling. Discover how it will improve your operations, sales and profits and why it is heralded as the next industrial revolution. In the first of a series, you will discover the benefits of the freedom to redesign your products at any stage in the life cycle.
Adhering to the constraints and limiting design freedoms are necessary for conventional manufacturing processes. Rapid manufacturing eliminates all of the design constraints imposed by conventional manufacturing methods. It offers designers and engineers an unprecedented freedom to design a product and its components exclusively for the desired form, fit and function.
Bridge to production is not a technology. It is a method, tactic and strategy to overcome the time delay between the present and the anticipated date for receipt of tools or parts. Manufacturers of high-volume products frequently find themselves needing rapid delivery of a small quantity of production-grade components. Without them, manufacturing comes to a grinding halt.
Direct digital manufacturing, otherwise known as rapid manufacturing, is a process that employs additive fabrication technology (aka rapid prototyping) to produce end-use items. Directly from CAD data, components are manufactured without molding, casting or machining. The impact of direct digital manufacturing is far-reaching, and the opportunities and advantages are extensive. This is why direct digital manufacturing is heralded as the next industrial revolution.
In today's global markets, companies are required to navigate a plethora of standards and regulatory requirements, making global business complex. Rockwell Automation's perspective is that the harmonization of standards and regulatory requirements is the best approach to facilitate global market access, competition and growth.
Shrinking product development cycles coupled with demanding product requirements and increasingly complex design implementations can overwhelm a design team. The technical risk of employing new, complex, high-speed processor technology can often deter a design group from incorporating new technology in their product designs.
