Educating the Next Generation of Makers : New England Board of Higher Education

Educating the Next Generation of Makers : New England Board of Higher Education | Manufacturing In the USA Today | Scoop.it

The field of manufacturing typically conjures images of dimly lit dirty and dangerous factories crowded with workers, the kind seen in photos of New York City’s garment district in the early 1900s and in some developing countries today. But because of advances in technology, the field of manufacturing—what we make, how we make it, where and by whom—is rapidly changing. As access to technologies continues to pervade our world, the opportunity for everyone and anyone to become a “maker,” inventor, hobbyist or entrepreneur is greatly increased, changing the definition and perception of what it means to be a manufacturer...Read More....

The practice has been known for decades, and Dr. Scott Smith of BlueSwarf explained in a recent Webinar just how to obtain this productivity gain...Read More....

Micro Molding & Micro Manufacturing

Micro Molding & Micro Manufacturing | Manufacturing In the USA Today | Scoop.it

7/10/14   In the early days of the commercialization of micro manufacturing technologies, there was a lot of discussion about what constituted “micro” manufacturing. There was (and indeed still is) a recognized continuum from small to precision, micro, and then nano scale components and features. In general, it is safe to say that with every week that passes, we are able to manufacture — at volume — parts that only recently seemed impossible, and increasingly we are beginning to discuss parts and features in terms of nanometers instead of microns. We are forever moving down the size continuum, and today’s “micro” parts were yesterday’s pipe dreams.

Real “nano” manufacturing is actually unlike what we all understand as conventional manufacturing, and actually involves the self-assembly of parts and components at the molecular scale, this being a discipline still very much in its infancy, and involving manipulation and interaction of chemicals, building materials atom by atom...Read More....
