Chief Executive
Barbara Humpton, CEO of Siemens USA, must position her company for a future that can look cloudy even for a giant that has dominated in many traditional areas of industry and technology — but isn’t assured of the same dominance as manufacturing and markets undergo ongoing digital revolution.
Not since the first Industrial Revolution has the manufacturing industry transformed more than it has in the last 20 years. New technologies including robotics, computer-driven manufacturing and data analytics have helped companies increase supply chain efficiencies to keep up with demand, and what if a bigger manufacturing industry transformation was on the horizon?

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.
