A leading aircraft manufacturer faces $27B in losses due to slow supply chain fixes, aggravated by escalating quality standards like AS9102 Rev C. The solution lies in seamless communication of requirements from buyers to suppliers, streamlining operations for all parties involved.
Additive manufacturing (AM) technologies present an array of benefits including lightweight structures (lattices, triply periodic minimal surfaces, and other organic shapes), consolidation of parts, limiting necessity for tooling, and lead time reduction.
Computational imaging technology has found its way into industrial automated inspection, where the creative use of illumination components has emerged as an enabling technology providing valuable imaging capabilities.
The science behind 3D scanners and CMM technologies is different; however, both collect coordinate measurement data and are widely used within the plastics industry. When is it better suited to use non-contact structured light 3D scanners than touch CMMs?
Cloud based quality software has numerous benefits for manufacturers with disparate production facilities and locations.

Cloud based quality software has numerous benefits for manufacturers with disparate production facilities and locations. Organizations with the following characteristics stand to especially benefit from a centralized system.
For decades, many manufacturers have counted on robots to tirelessly produce parts of predictable quality. One of the key attributes of robots is their repeatability, which means that their tool tip will return to the same pre-programmed location with a known and relatively small error.
On Demand During this webinar, you will hear Dover executives, manufacturing engineers, and training leaders describe their manufacturing challenges and how they successfully apply interactive digital work instruction software to address them.
