New Equipment Digest
History shows capital investment follows big tax cuts, with a 12 percent rise being predicted in manufacturing equipment orders. It’s an exciting time, but one in which you must re-examine your product life cycle management plan.
Digital Journal
3D printing has advanced in relation to plastics. With metals, progress has been slower due to technical complexities. A new advancement with the effective and safe 3D printing of steel has been announced.
Plastics Today
TWWomer & Associates has developed an innovative plastics micro extruder for 3D printing, laboratory use and academic/research programs.
American manufacturing is experiencing a remarkable period of growth. In September 2017, the Institute for Supply Management recorded a 13-year high, with its national factory index climbing to 60.8 (In October the index dipped slightly to 58.7, although any reading higher than 50 indicates industry growth.)

Kapp Technologies
Learn the fundamentals of gear manufacturing in this hands-on course. Gain an understanding of gearing and nomenclature, principles of inspection, gear manufacturing methods, and hobbing and shaping. Utilizing manual machines, develop a deeper breadth of perspective and understanding of the process and physics of making a gear as well as the ability to apply this knowledge in working with CNC equipment commonly in use.
Plant Services
In this "big picture" interview, Christine LaVoi explores how devices meant to promote productivity and safety also raise privacy concerns.
Green Optimistic
Powertrains are the heart of vehicles as they constitute the components that generate power and deliver them to the road. Cummins Inc., a U.S.-based Fortune 500 company, is well-known for designing, manufacturing and distributing diesel-and natural gas-powered engines. To diversify its product portfolio, its chairman and CEO announced the company’s entry into the electric powertrain thrust last year.

From robots to augmented reality, new technologies are enhancing rather than replacing factory floor workers, empowering them to shift time and energy to more value-added work.
Machine Design
The goal of these x-ray studies is to find ways to improve 3D printed metal parts for the aerospace, aircraft, automotive and healthcare industries.
(Video) Emerson Electric Co. CEO David Farr discusses wage pressure, manufacturing and immigration.
Digitalization is becoming increasingly common as manufacturers of components and systems develop ways to make their products more intelligent. The potential benefits in terms of increased efficiency and responsiveness in a production environment are already clear, but there is still uncertainty about how and when the full benefits of the fourth industrial revolution — Industry 4.0 — will materialize.

In the race to land humans on Mars, NASA is blowing the cobwebs off a technology it shelved in the 1970s — nuclear-powered rockets. Last year, NASA partnered with BWXT Nuclear Energy Inc. for an $18.8 million contract to design a reactor and develop fuel for use in a nuclear-thermal propulsion engine for deep-space travel. While that small start is a long way from the heady days of the Space Race of the Cold War, it marks the U.S. return to an idea that is also pursued by Russia and China.
Thanks to the emergence of big data and increased processing power, our advanced machines are not only able to perform a range of routine physical work activities, but they are increasingly capable of accomplishing tasks requiring cognitive abilities.
ARC Advisory Group
GE and Tata Group inaugurated a world class Structural Center of Excellence (COE) focused on aero engine components in Adibatla on the outskirts of Hyderabad, India. The COE will incorporate latest technologies from GE and best manufacturing practices to deliver complex, high precision aero engine components to the world’s fastest-selling jet engine, the CFM LEAP (Leading Edge Aviation Propulsion) engine, catering to aircraft manufacturers like Airbus and Boeing. 
Cincinnati Gearing Systems Inc.
Gain a better understanding of various types of gears and bearings. Learn about the limitations and capabilities of rolling element bearings and the gears that they support. Grasp and understand how to properly apply the best gear-bearing combination to any gearbox from simple to complex.
Elon Musk, the visionary entrepreneur who launched a Tesla convertible into outer space on Feb. 6, is nothing if not audacious.
So when he told investment analysts the next day that his Silicon Valley company would out-Toyota Toyota when it comes to lean manufacturing, he no doubt believes it will happen.
New Equipment Digest
Nearly five years ago, Boston Dynamics revealed its humanoid Atlas robot for the DARPA Robotics Challenge, a practical RFP for the U.S. government to find the best robotic first responder for a major disasters, like a nuclear plant meltdown. Opening a door was one of the required tasks for the 2015 competition, and the results were comically underwhelming.
Manufacturing Business Technology
Industrial and manufacturing companies do not consider themselves a lucrative target for cyber criminals and have only taken fairly minor measures to secure their systems. After all, they don’t handle large volumes of online transactions, nor do they have databases filled with the details of millions of customers. It also doesn’t seem like this sector should be greatly threatened by nation-state hackers; sabotaging a factory or power plant could hardly impact a tense diplomatic conflict.

The research into metal 3D printing never ends, as scientists work to discover what factors go into thecreation of defects in metal 3D printed parts — and what can be done to eliminate those defects. Imperfections in metal 3D printed parts are nothing to ignore; in many industries, an imperfect metal part is a dangerous metal part.
Metals. Humans have been developing innovative ways to use these electric-conducive, often shiny, malleable materials for centuries. From creating intricate details in jewelry to forging weaponry and constructing giant structure, the use of metals continues to evolve in modern times.
