From FANUC FA America
Automotive manufacturing is HOT. And the “re-invention” of today’s automobile powertrain is driving large investments in capital equipment. The forces driving this change are many and varied . . . from governmental mandates to shifting workforce competencies. But the need to integrate complex manufacturing systems into complete solutions has become the key element to be successful in this growing marketplace. Safety systems, integrated technology, MES connectivity and engineering support are all factors that are driving the market and FANUC FA America and Rockwell Automation are companies that are successfully driving that change. Key topics will include: 1. Forces Driving Automotive Manufacturing Change – A Short History 2. Project Engineering – Shifting to Vendor Engineered Manufacturing & Assembly Solutions (VEMA) 3. Information Networks 4. Safety Systems 5. Distributed I/O Systems
From RedEye RPM
One of the greatest unspoken benefits of additive manufacturing in automotive markets is its ability to restructure the supply chain. By providing fast, real-time delivery information to better communicate production times and assembly plans for pre-production vehicle parts, additive manufacturing streamlines development and transportation processes from the design phase to production to consumption, reducing overall time and cost to market. This webinar defines additive manufacturing technologies and their automotive applications, and shares real user stories that showcase the impact the technologies can have on the product development process and supply chain. RedEye On Demand’s Jeff Hanson will be your host. - What Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) can do for automotive production - How Additive Manufacturing will create the new digital production facility - How Additive Manufacturing will enable internet communication technologies to help streamline the supply chain
In an automotive plant, cost-saving efficiencies are created by streamlining processes and reducing waste. Portable metrology tools such as articulating arms, laser trackers, and laser scanners have become staples in today’s automotive assembly plants by enabling manufacturers to create and improve these efficiencies. This webinar will discuss how portable metrology tools are used and how they can easily be implemented in assembly line design, installation, and maintenance to help optimize workflows. Primary topics: • How to streamline workflows • How to maximize automotive manufacturing efficiencies • Benefits of using portable metrology tools in automotive assembly plants
