US manufacturing utilizes rapid data acquisition to improve production capability
As manufacturing companies across the globe seek to improve the quality of their products, researchers in the USA have utilized HBM’s DAQ equipment to ensure international competitiveness.
In its efforts to remain globally competitive, US manufacturing is implementing fundamental changes that are focused on designing and building complex, highly customized, high quality goods. Global demand means these must be built rapidly to meet changing market demands. Manufacturers need to shorten product development cycles and increase flexibility and speed of production systems along with supply networks. This must be completed while reducing any energy requirements and environmental impact.
One major challenge facing US manufacturing is the ability to accurately predict the best machining parameters for a particular process and work material.
This has been the focus of major research in the USA where the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has developed advanced process metrology methods and tools to increase the scientific understanding of existing manufacturing processes.
