Optimizing Next-gen Machine Vision Platform To Enhance Automated Inspection

With machine vision’s development and growth in the Industry 4.0 environment, the higher computing performance becomes essential to acquire high resolution images at high speeds, and expanding FOV (field of view). The associated hardware must therefore significantly enhance reliability, to guarantee smooth operation of the production line. Read this white paper to know more about characteristics the next-gen machine vison platform need.

3D Printed Jigs and Fixtures Save Time and Reduce Cost

There is an often-overlooked additive manufacturing (AM) application with potentially huge financial returns: jig and fixture making. Replacing conventionally manufactured jigs and fixtures with additively manufactured ones will reduce the fabrication expense, while reducing labor and speeding delivery. But that financial advantage is tiny when compared to the profit gains that result from production-floor reductions in labor and time to market. Learn how four owners of Stratasys Fortus 3D printers justified new AM systems based solely on jigs and fixtures.
