Asset maintenance managers are often forced to fill multiple roles, from supervising repairs and preventive maintenance to inventorying assets and projecting their lifespans. As digitalization sweeps through industries, balancing the multiple pressures of the job can be difficult. Fortunately, technology can help streamline processes, providing the insights needed to make well-informed decisions about asset investments.
After less than two years and a precipitous decline at General Electric, John Flannery has been ousted as chairman and CEO at the century-old company. Flannery took over for longtime CEO Jeff Immelt in June 2017 with the company trying to re-establish its industrial roots, albeit a high-tech version of itself.

High-Speed Axis Synchronization Technology – The Newest Innovation Redefining Gear Manufacturing
High-speed synchronization technology has reshaped standard gear manufacturing by producing parts with more accuracy, less time, and less cost. Built into Toyoda's Gear Skiving Machining Centers, this innovative technology takes five processes, traditionally spread across five separate machines, and integrates them into one compact machining center.

Manufacturing Global
August proved particularly fruitful with 118 aircrafts, most of which consisted of Airbus A320s and Boeing 737s, delivered in what was the most successful month this year so far. It has meant that expectations have increased that British aircraft deliveries could achieve a new annual production record.
Fascinating insights from an article McKinsey published this month, exploring how the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is redefining industrial equipment and machinery manufacturing. The study shows how smart machines are the future of manufacturing, exploring how IIoT platforms are enabling greater machine-level autonomy and intelligence.

As part of a partnership between the Volvo Group, California’s South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD), and industry leaders in transportation and electrical charging infrastructure, Volvo Trucks will introduce all-electric truck demonstrators in California next year and commercialize them in North America in 2020.
The Institute for Supply Management said Monday that its manufacturing index fell to a reading of 59.8 percent in September from 61.3 percent. Economists polled by MarketWatch expected a reading of 60.7 percent. Any reading above 50 percent indicates improving conditions.
U.S. and global manufacturing are trending in opposite directions. The J.P. Morgan Global Manufacturing PMI posted a 22-month low in September, declining for the eighth out of nine months this year, while manufacturing in the U.S. rose to a four-month high, according to IHS Market survey data.

One thing about airplanes — especially ones that fly from aircraft carriers, where they’re battered by saltwater and tough deck landings — is that they need lots of spare parts that are not always on hand. Instead of flying in new parts, though, future Navy ships may be able to make new ones to order.
Machine Design
Looking back a couple of decades, it was really only the big aerospace and automotive companies that got the most value out of simulation, or even attempted it. Now, every organization — and the design engineers in those organizations — can get value and should be using it.
Everyone seems to be talking about digital these days, from Industry 4.0 to the Internet of Things (IoT) and how all of this is going to affect our collective future. Cloud computing, semi-autonomous AI and connected devices are already with us and this trend will only continue, but for some reason, manufacturers seem to be lagging. The term ‘digital manufacturing’ refers both to a suite of interconnected devices and systems – the technical backbone – as well as the organizational procedures that make use of these systems to improve performance and profitability.

Gain a solid and fundamental understanding of gear geometry, types and arrangements and design principles. Starting with the basic definitions of gears, conjugate motion and the Laws of Gearing, learn the tools needed to understand the inter-relation and coordinated motion operating within gear pairs and multi-gear trains. Basic gear system design process and gear measurement and inspection techniques will also be explained. In addition, the fundamentals of understanding the step-wise process of working through the iterative design process required to generate a gear pair will be reviewed. Learn the steps and issues involved in design refinement and some manufacturing considerations. As explanation of basic gear measurement techniques, how measurement equipment and test machines implement these techniques, and how to interpret the results from these basic measurements will also be covered.
