A new generation of artificial intelligence solutions will prove themselves in the near future. They’ll build new trust, urgency and understanding of what AI actually is and just how much it can deliver. Voice-driven solutions will lead the charge and we’ll see pick-and-place robots in smart warehouses delivering a major competitive edge, as companies advance their use of Robotic Process Automation.
Executives in the manufacturing industry know that engaging employees is crucial. In fact, across all trades, organizations are investing $18 billion on tools to bolster employee engagement, yet the return on these investments is unclear. According to Gallup’s State of the Workplace report, only 25% of manufacturing workers are engaged at work.

You can’t print a new lung or Stradivarius violin yet, but a new HP 3D printer takes a big step toward making the technology more useful. The Jet Fusion 5200 is designed for high-volume manufacturing. That’s a market with more potential for profound change than the more common 3D printers used to build prototypes or, like HP’s earlier Jet Fusion 4200, for small-scale production. 
AGMA and NFPA announce a two-track seminar series, MPT Conference, focusing on business topics and emerging technologies: blockchain, cybersecurity, supply chain, workforce, 3D printed metal, electric drive technology, IoT and robotics.

Process instruments have been digital (smart) for many years. In fact, microprocessor-based measuring devices for flow, level, pressure, temperature, etc., have been available since the 1980s. However, a vast majority of units purchased and installed still rely on the 4-20 mA analog output of the process variable, with the digital interface completely ignored.
Automation World
Every day, we enter further into the age of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), in which data is king and connectivity is key. At this point, it’s well understood that, to increase efficiency in any process, one must first obtain accurate data from within the process to ensure it is functioning as well as it can.

CASE STUDY DOWNLOAD: Barkhausen Noise vs. Nital Etch
With Barkhausen noise analysis, you can detect near surface stress and micro structural defects due to improper heat treatment and grinding. Unlike traditional nital etch, Barkhausen noise analysis is non-destructive, objective, and repeatable.
  • No scrap or consumables
  • No chemical disposals
  • Safer laboratory and work space
  • Improved traceability and process optimization
In this case study, find out how one transmission manufacturer leverages Barkhausen noise analysis to significantly improve the safety and accuracy of their inspection and cut costs.

Work is hard. But we don’t always realize how hard it is or, indeed, that some forms of labor are work at all. If you stand on your feet or stare at a screen all day, you can point to bodily strain. But if a task is something more mental, the difficulty is often invisible – which can make it hard to evaluate or celebrate those who perform such tasks.
