Festo/Oracle Helping customers harness the power of worker upskilling The Oracle Industry Lab in Chicago provides a testing ground for institutions to explore and innovate solutions to solve their toughest challenges. Oracle and Festo are joining forces to help educators create new opportunities and solve tough challenges at the Oracle Industry Lab . The facility provides hands-on, simulated industry settings for customers to experiment, learn, and bring transformative technologies to life. At the lab, visitors will interact with a sophisticated Festo Learning Factory used in training and workforce development programs worldwide. The Learning Factory models the next generation of Industry 4.0 production facilities and provides students with a holistic platform to understand Smart Manufacturing. The automated machinery uses advanced sensors, controllers, and software to produce Lot Size One simulated cell phones. Students learn and follow the process from order entry through production to final distribution. “We are thrilled to be working together with the Oracle Industry Lab where we partner with the leading information company to harness the power of data for the education and training sector. The demand for skilled workforce in manufacturing is skyrocketing, and innovations such as this will prepare the next generation of workers,” says Ted Rozier, director of engineering, Festo Didactic Inc. The 30,000ft2 Oracle Industry Lab brings customers, technology partners, and the entire Oracle portfolio of solutions and decades of deep industry expertise together to incubate and demonstrate new solutions across industries. Supported by Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband, the Oracle Industry Lab will first focus on use cases in utilities, construction and engineering, communications, and manufacturing. “Many industries are at a crossroads as they look to navigate increasing regulatory, environmental, and customer-driven demands,” says Burcin Kaplanoglu, vice president, Oracle Industry Labs. “We built the Chicago lab to bring together leading innovators like Festo Didactic so we can jointly help customers shape bold ideas into powerful solutions that improve productivity, operational intelligence, and sustainability.”   When you register for our May Manufacturing Lunch + Learn event you will gain new insight about today’s manufacturing technology. The first session is presented by Open Mind Technologies USA featuring Account Manager Kevin Lewis and Application Engineer Uday Honnalagere. The two will be discussing intelligent “best fit” CAM process for alignment and machining of 3D printed stock. Additive/3D printed material used in manufacturing applications are witnessing high growth worldwide in a broad range of industries. Historically, for components that need finish machining after AM, the alignment on the machine tool requires high expertise, expense in setup time, and can have inconsistent results. This is due to the challenge in alignment of the NC program to the real-world conditions presented by the clamping position of the irregular material on the machine tool. Intelligent part alignment integrated in the CAM system offers a solution to this problem by efficiently adapting the virtual (NC program) to the real world (location of the stock on the machine). A “best fit” CAM process offers a quick, predictable, and reliable path to overcome this challenge in a way that eliminates the requirement for specialist knowledge, reduces setup time and eliminates waste. The second presentation is from John Parker, MT business development and product manager at Heidenhain. Parker will be discussing new CNCS manufactured in the U.S. – MILLPWR an TURNPWR. MILLPWR a powerful yet easy to operate CNC retrofit systems for knee mills and bed mills. Faster set-ups, shorter run times and a major boost in productivity are just one "powerful easy" retrofit away. Our new MILLPWRG2 control and retrofit kits can turn just about any knee mill into a powerhouse money-maker. TURNPWR is a workshop-oriented turning control that enables the user to program conventional machining operations right at the machine. It is designed for turning machine tools with up to two axes. TURNPWR was developed to satisfy the wants and needs of lathe machinists where manual and automated operation are both useful and needed. TURNPWR promises to enable the user to maximize throughput by significantly reducing setup time, scrap, and other non-productive operations. Register today so you aren’t left behind the competition. Visiting the Controls & CAD-CAM Pavilion at IMTS 2022 puts you on a path to optimizing manufacturing and job shop efficiency. Showcased will be digital twin and virtual solutions; machine and enterprise-wide monitoring software to identify bottlenecks and increase OEE; ERP systems that can reduce setup time and increase employee productivity; cybersecurity preparedness solutions; and advanced estimating and quoting software enabling job shops to respond to RFQs in hours, not days. “We have experienced a seismic shift in the democratization of digital manufacturing technologies designed for job shop use to increase CNC and 3D printer productivity,” says Peter R. Eelman, chief experience officer at AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology, owner and producer of IMTS , taking place September 12-17 at McCormick Place, Chicago, Illinois. “These digital solutions come at a time when industry needs to harness every efficiency it can to combat labor issues and keep up with growing demand, as proven by the 30% year-over-year increase in U.S. Manufacturing Technology Orders .”  Accurate simulation, asset management “Digital twins capture data and provide critical information needed to make decisions early in the process, long before they become expensive,” says Rob Walker, manager of technical marketing for manufacturing at Autodesk (booth # 133310 ). “Digital twin technology is all-encompassing, from running simulated toolpaths with automatic collision avoidance, to checking if new capital equipment will efficiently fit within a facility.” At IMTS 2022, the company will showcase a new machine simulation feature for Autodesk Fusion 360. Simulation-ready machines have fully defined solid model kinematics alongside a linked machine simulation-ready post-processor. Autodesk has been working with companies such as Haas (booth # 338100 ), Hurco (booth # 338319 ), and Mazak (booth # 338300 ) to build out its machine library. The goal is to enable Fusion 360 users to import a digital twin of popular machines using Autodesk’s standard drop-down menus. “Digital twin technology makes it easier to implement 5-axis CNCs and other more advanced machines on the shop floor,” says Chuck Matthews, product manager of production software, Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence [Hexagon acquired ESPRIT (booth # 133210 ) last year.] “With the state of the industry today, users no longer struggle to get a good post-processor in combination with a virtual machine. Digital twins help companies obtain the full productivity benefits of their advanced machine in weeks instead of months.” At IMTS, ESPRIT/Hexagon will demonstrate how to improve OEE with connected software solutions as part of Hexagon’s cloud-based SFx Asset Management application, which also records CNC machine tool operating data so teams can analyze and mitigate downtime. “You can’t run a business efficiently relying on raw emotions or gut instincts,” adds Gisbert Ledvon, director of business development – machine tool at HEIDENHAIN (booth # 135716 ). “Data really opens people’s eyes. The before-and-after situation when installing a monitoring solution follows a familiar pattern. People think they’re running at 70% efficiency because the spindle is spinning, but data proves that the machine is cutting 40% of the time. When management can see the bottlenecks, it gives them confidence to execute changes.” To help companies large and small view and analyze machine data, HEIDENHAIN will premiere its PlantMonitor digital solution at IMTS 2022, and the new TNC7 control. This software umbrella, which connects machine tools where at least one is equipped with a TNC control and the company’s StateMonitor software combination, makes the entire production environment transparent to users. “Advanced digital manufacturing technology is no longer the realm of engineers and IT departments,” Eelman says. “Over the last four years, exhibitors have harnessed the increase in processing speed to create a better user experience. Powerful software is now as easy to implement as your preferred CAD-CAM program.” Biocoat Inc., a specialty manufacturer of hydrophilic biomaterial coatings and coating equipment for medical devices, announced its expansion into the design, development, and delivery of hydrophilic dip coating equipment.
