Industry 4.0 has taken manufacturing to the next level, handing processes over to technology, smart machines, and AI. These transformations often happen in isolation, creating siloed environments that miss the bigger purpose of digitalization. When a company connects data among people, programs, and processes it creates a digital factory … read more
The Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) has been around in its current bridge configuration form for over 35 years. While speed and accuracies have improved over the decades the basic footprint has remained unchanged. The bridge CMM is something of a ‘space hog’ with its ‘X-Y’ measuring volume being only some … read more
Digitalized manufacturing enables a closed-loop production that results in increased efficiency, less waste and improved quality. Sandvik has rapidly expanded its digital offering to automate and connect the manufacturing value chain, from design and planning to preparation, production and verification. Sandvik has since long been a world-leading supplier of tools and … read more
API has launched its DYNAMIC 9D LADAR (LAser Detection and Ranging) system, an innovative measuring solution that captures both dimensional and surface geometry data. The system incorporates a breakthrough technology that is set to revolutionize automated production measurements. The patent-pending Dynamic 9D LADAR offers the world’s first interferometry-based LADAR system … read more
Metrology News sat down with Marc Soucy President of Innovmetric, developer of the Polyworks software platform, for a discussion on how the digitization of manufacturing will impact measurement processes, access to and utilization of actionable data, the future role of ‘part digital twins’ along with adaption … read more
Manufacturers in just about every industry are already embracing the reality of Industry 4.0—that the digital transformation of factories is necessary, replacing manual processes with automated systems in cyber-physical smart factories. This is crucial as challenges caused by global disruptions can make it even more challenging … read more
Centralized, not decentralized; local servers, not hundreds of industrial PCs; software, not hardware: with the local server solution Edge Cloud 4 Production, Audi is initiating a paradigm shift in automation technology. After successful testing in the Audi Production Lab (P-Lab), three local servers will take over directing workers in its … read more
