Why is Industry 4.0 an Opportunity for Small Manufacturing?
The term Industry 4.0 first entered the vocabulary in the last decade. In simple terms, it stands for the fourth industrial revolution. Over time, industry moved from a manual process to machinery and steam power. This transition was the first industrial revolution. The second big change was the result of electric processes and assembly lines. The third revolution was the result of computerization and automation. Industry 4.0 marks a major transition to artificial intelligence, big data, and cyber management systems.Read More
Finite Element Analysis | Four Key Factors to Consider
When developing a product, sophisticated manufacturers often use a form of virtual analysis known as Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to predict the performance of the finished product. The FEA uses a predictive process known as the Finite Element Method (FEM) to create a computer simulation of the product in use in various situations. This process allows businesses to develop…Read More
How to Avoid Waste in Reverse Engineering
Reverse Engineering a reliable old product into the designs of a great new product is an important function of manufacturing. Streamlining that process through outsourcing and virtual testing is a cost effective way to tackle the process.Read More
