The world doesn’t stand still. So, it’s important for manufacturers to keep abreast of emerging manufacturing technology trends—both in terms of IT, as well as core manufacturing technologies. What are the key manufacturing takeaways from Gartner’s top technology trends? Andy Gough, general manager at Datawright discusses.
IoT is set to transform manufacturing by optimising supply chains, improving efficiencies, reducing waste and increasing profits. HSO – a leading provider of innovative enterprise business solutions – explores how.
Glasgow-based M Squared Lasers, a leading force in the UK’s growing laser and photonics sector, has received a further investment of £1.65m from BGF (Business Growth Fund) to support its continued rapid growth.
ABB is to supply energy-efficient, low-voltage power distribution solutions to COMPAS (Cooperation Manufacturing Plant Aguascalientes), the new car manufacturing facilities of Renault-Nissan and Daimler’s strategic Mexican joint venture with the aim of reducing energy consumption by up to 20%.
Scientists from the Australian Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), in collaboration with Melbourne's RMIT University and the Queensland University of Technology, have demonstrated that pre-treating a battery’s lithium metal electrodes with an electrolyte salt solution extends the battery life and increases performance and safety.
