ERROR-FREE MANUFACTURING: Immersive technologies reduce errors and detect them faster

Manufacturing has two critical phases – planning how to manufacture a product, and then executing that plan. Leading manufacturers are applying immersive virtuality (iV) technologies at both points. “Beyond product design, the second area where automotive and aerospace companies have used their CAVEs is in designing the processes for the factory and the workshop,” said …

ASK THE EXPERT: Dassault Systemes’ Fred Thomas on Embracing Digital Continuity

What is Digital Continuity, and how does it support the manufacturing operations management process? How do companies with disparate, legacy systems adapt to the speed in which they have to respond, on a global scale, to the changing needs of their customers? If the concept of a ‘single source of truth’, a unified environment integrating all …

3D PRINTING: Disruptive technology poised to transform manufacturing

Two important milestones in the long march toward a three- dimensional printing revolution were achieved in late 2012 with little or no fanfare. First, General Electric announced that it had purchased a small precision-engineering firm called Morris Technologies, based near Cincinnati, Ohio (USA), and planned to use the company’s 3D printing machines to make parts …

INTEGRATED ORGANIZATIONS: Working as one improves industrial-equipment makers’ competitiveness

With increasingly sophisticated products, supply chains and customer expectations, industrial-equipment manufacturers are experiencing intense pressure to deliver. Compass spoke with Cambashi founder Mike Evans about strategies to manage the industry’s growing complexity. COMPASS:  What challenges are industrial-equipment makers facing? MIKE EVANS:  Machine builders must accelerate time-to-market of new machines while reducing costs and ensuring greater safety and reliability. They must also comply with strict standards and stringent regulations. Customers also demand that today’s machines do more than ever …

ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING – Business challenges drive aerospace companies to advance 3D printing technology

Additive manufacturing (AM) or 3D printing has moved well beyond prototyping. Today, most aerospace companies use it to improve the functionality of existing components and fabricate non-structural parts for commercial and general aviation aircraft. AM enthusiasts envision the day when this revolutionary process will be used to “print” entire fuselages, wings and critical engine parts …
