Industry 4.0 refers to a new phase in the Industrial Revolution that focuses heavily on interconnectivity, automation, machine learning, and real-time data. It’s playing a key role in improving manufacturing productivity and supply chain optimisation, and helping to build recovery plans for Australian businesses needing to develop new strategies to address the impacts of Covid-19.
Part of this toolset involves smart use of appropriate technologies, which marries physical production and operations with smart digital technology.
Additive manufacturing (AM) is considered to be an essential ingredient in the Industry 4.0 movement, with material advancements, process developments, and generative design capabilities.
The use and implementation of additive manufacturing, in combination with other technologies, is reducing post-processing, material waste and human intervention.
3D scanning is often used when companies need to evaluate the integration of Industry 4.0 systems and technologies into their facilities, such as design and customisation, quality checks, augmented reality training programs and maintenance checks are all fundamental processes.
The application of 3D scanning can result in improved speed and accuracy of routine operations; faster delivery or product movement rates; reduce human error and improved productivity.
