Is there any product that does not require at least some amount of plastic? Hardly any! In fact, for a lot of products, plastic is an integral manufacturing material. Take automobiles, for instance, to produce an automobile, high-performance plastic such as Polypropylene, Poly-Vinyl-Chloride (PVC), Polyethylene (PE), etc. are used in volumes. This means, if the quality of the plastic used in producing the automotives is defective, the quality of the entire product will be compromised.

Given how plastic is the choice of material for most industries, the manufacturing process to produce plastic should be subject to stringent vision inspection for…

Digital transformation has revolutionized the steel manufacturing industry. While Steel manufacturers are readily embracing and experimenting with digitalization, they are willing to upheaval the steel manufacturing process even further with Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Artificial Intelligence has become the nucleus of the steel manufacturing industry. AI has helped businesses achieve high ROI by transforming the toilsome and flawed steel manufacturing process to an effortless and friction-less one. AI is a powerful tool and is paramount to the steel manufacturing industry, owing to the 5 main reasons listed below.

1 Quality Control

As it is humanly impossible to track every stage of…

Issey Miyake, a renowned Japanese fashion designer, known for technology-driven clothing designs, once said: “There are no boundaries for what can be fabric.” The statement fits rightly in this day and age where customers are extremely quality conscious. If they spot one little hole, a slub or a loose thread on the fabric, they will not shy away from expressing negative reviews about the brand.

Fabric manufacturers are opting for smart manufacturing with the latest technologies, digitalization, and innovation to manufacture supreme quality of the fabric, but the desired quality of the fabric is not achieved. …

Any company that earns goodwill due to its quality and timely delivery of goods knows the importance of having a flawless manufacturing process; ultimately, the quality of goods invariably depends on it.

Manufacturers, irrespective of their industries, must always look to improve the manufacturing efficiency. We have listed 4 main ways to successfully enhance the efficiency of your manufacturing process.

1. Invest in the right technology

Investing in the latest, relevant technologies will scale up the manufacturing process. For instance, if a fabric manufacturer employs a labourer to check for knots on a piece of fabric before it is moved…

You may have the best of manufacturing ideas, strategies, and plans but, a faulty machine or an equipment failure is all it takes to distort your entire manufacturing process.

It is imperative to ensure that the machine and equipment being used in the manufacturing facility functions perfectly well. However, this task is easier said than done. Many times, the manufacturer may not see a machine downtime or equipment failure coming due to which the entire manufacturing process goes haywire. So, how can a manufacturer prevent machine downtime or equipment failure? Looks like Predictive Maintenance is the way to go!


The manufacturing industry is under a tremendous revolution from 2011; also known as Industry 4.0 where the traditional manufacturing processes are proliferated with smart digital technology, machine learning, robotics, AI, Augmented reality, etc.
