Modern ManufacturingJuly 2, 2020
Modern manufacturing relies heavily on interconnectivity, machine learning, automation, and real-time data. It’s the successful combination of all three that make this an exciting time in the evolvement of the industrial revolution.
Manufacturers are embracing these types of factories simply because of the improvement in the product, the speed with which products can be produced, and the financial and productivity gains to be had with innovative manufacturing processes. According to statistics, more and more manufacturers plan to create factories that rely on modern innovations in manufacturing, and the gains to the global economy is projected to be in the trillions of dollars.
It was once considered a bad thing: machines replacing human jobs at factories. But the fact that most modern manufacturing has moved to other countries, it’s a positive to bring manufacturing back home with modern factories operated by interconnected machines that all deliver real-time data, and the products built are initially marked and able to be tracked as they progress through the stages of manufacturing. Innovations happen when manufacturing processes are streamlined and the products produced are precise.
This is not the first time that modern technological innovations have changed or tweaked modern manufacturing. If we look back through history we’ll see that it was Henry Ford who created the first assembly line, and that innovation drastically cut down on the cost and the man hours required to assemble a modern automobile—cut the hours exactly in half.
That’s one of the advantages to using Northwest Industries. Every task from prototype and design to precision CNC machine work gets done with modern technological innovations, and because of the precision work involved the end product is produced on time with competitive pricing. And with advancements in technology and training, Northwest Industries will continue to produce quality products on timely schedules.
