标题:Survey: Number of New Manufacturing Businesses in Decline


简介:In a recent study from Swyft Filings, the manufacturing industry showed a decent amount of new business growth, coming in 14th in the rankings across industries. Manufacturing business formation growth saw a 5.8 percent drop in 2018, compared to a year-over-year increase of 38.3 percent from 2016 to 2017. The report suggests that this drop comes from a growing gap between larger and smaller companies. Larger companies can more easily expand their portfolios by purchasing smaller businesses or building new or larger facilities, while smaller companies compete to stay relevant as the larger ones expand. According to the report, demand for equipment needed for industrial activities is only increasing, including in the construction and oil and gas industries, but the larger companies that can cover the full spectrum of products needed for these operations push smaller companies out.

标题:The Use of Virtual Manufacturing Features in forward Manufacturing Process Planning


简介:CAPP system is the missing link between CAD/CAM system. Two types of operation of CAPP systems can be distinguished. The first one is the backward process planning, where the part is transformed from its ready state to the stock state. The second method is the forward planning, where the stock is transformed into the finished part. Backward process planning allow for the greater degree of automation, but is difficult for the acceptation among the industrial users. One of the problem in the forward process planning is the necessity to use the manufacturing features which do not occur in the finished part, they occur only in the part intermediate states. The paper propose so called virtual manufacturing features to solve this problem.

标题:Virtual machining system simulator: analysis of machine tool accuracy


简介:This paper presents a novel Virtual Machining System Simulator (VMSS) which quantifies and visualizes the effect of machine tool errors under quasi-static load conditions on the machine tool’s accuracy. The VMSS is a generalized machine tool model that incorporates geometric errors and static loads to simulate the interaction between the machine tool structure and the cutting process. The errors are captured and described through the synthesis of bottom-up and top-down model building approaches. The paper presents ideas how to utilize the information from the VMSS to improve the process capability and discusses challenges to realise a fully digitized model.

标题:Autonomous Mobile Robots Is One of the Fastest Growing Markets ARC Has Ever Researched


简介:Autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) are a form of automatic guided vehicles (AGVs) that can be implemented without any supporting infrastructure like markers or wires or magnets implanted in the floor or precisely located laser targets.There are two types of autonomous mobile robots, solutions based on fleet management and solutions that rely on picking optimization. Fleet management solutions typically operate with bigger payloads and route the robots from an origin to a destination.  Pick optimization robots integrate the movement of machines and people in a process flow designed to increase picking throughput.This is one of the fastest growing hardware markets ARC has ever encountered.  The growth is fueled by the difficulty in hiring workers that want to work in warehouses or factories in North America and Europe, the increased flexibility of these solutions, the boom in ecommerce, and significant venture capital investments in many of the suppliers in this market.

标题:Additive Manufacturing Continues to Prove Promise of Custom-Fit Future


简介:For all the interest and headlines generated by additive manufacturing—more commonly known as 3D printing—it still represents a small percentage of all manufacturing operations. Traditional subtractive manufacturing methods such as CNC machining and injection molding produce the vast majority of all parts manufactured at scale. The benefits of on-demand customization for small batches of personalized consumer products is evident. But we’re now beginning to see additive manufacturing used on a much larger industrial scale. Clearly, there’s a growing level of confidence in additive manufacturing, and that will create opportunities across a variety of industries. Here are a few examples:

标题:Investigation of exhaust flow and exergy fluctuations in a diesel engine


简介:In the present study, we investigated cyclic fluctuations of exhaust flow through measured variations in instantaneous pressure of the exhaust manifold and its implications on the exergy (the useful available energy) of exhaust flow of a single cylinder representation of a heavy-duty diesel engine over a range of operating conditions. The engine was operated at a speed of 1500 rpm and at loads of 2.5 bar and 5 bar brake mean effective pressure (BMEP) and different boost pressures (1.2 bar to 2.4 bar). Instantaneous exhaust pressures were measured over 1000 consecutive engine cycles by a piezoresistive exhaust sensor and instantaneous exhaust temperatures as well as mass flow rates were obtained by constructing GT-SUITE models. Cycle to cycle variations in magnitudes of maximum measured exhaust pressure, calculated exhaust temperature and phasing of the blow down to displacement transition were analyzed. Additionally, cyclic variability in exhaust exergy components, i.e., thermal and mechanical exergies were estimated. The results show that the magnitude of the maximum exhaust pressure increased at higher engine load (i.e., from the average values of 1.63 bar to 2.00 bar at 2.5 bar BMEP to the average values of 1.78 bar to 2.16 bar at 5 bar BMEP). Also, the crank-resolved ensemble exergy rate in the exhaust process was higher at higher engine load and the return maps of the cumulative exergy at both engine loads exhibited a stochastic pattern. Furthermore, the mechanical component of exergy in the exhaust process had lower variations in comparison to the thermal component of exergy at both engine loads.
