End of Chinese manufacturing and rebirth of US industry based on robotics, AI, 3D printing and nanotech

End of Chinese manufacturing and rebirth of US industry based on robotics, AI, 3D printing and nanotech | Manufacturing industry | Scoop.it

There is great concern about China’s real-estate and infrastructure bubbles. But these are just short-term challenges that China may be able to spend its way out of. The real threat to China’s economy is bigger and longer term: its manufacturing bubble.

 

Rising costs and political pressure aren’t what’s going to rapidly change the equation. The disruption will come from a set of technologies that are advancing at exponential rates and converging. These technologies include robotics, artificial intelligence, 3D printing, and nanotechnology. China has many reasons to worry, and manufacturing will undoubtedly return to the U.S. — if not in this decade then early in the next. But the same jobs that left the U.S. won’t come back: they won’t exist.

US Army engineers use latest laser cutting technologies | Manufacturing industry | Scoop.it

Laser cutting technology is well-known in the fabrication and factory settings. From circuit-boards to precision-cutting cooling holes in turbine blades, laser cutting is a well-understood technique that has weathered recent economic challenges due to increased demand and increased efficiency as the tools and techniques are refined. One area, however, that is just coming into its own is laser-cut replacement parts for equipment and vehicles in the field, outside the factory setting.

The End of Chinese Manufacturing and Rebirth of US Industry - Huffington Post

The End of Chinese Manufacturing and Rebirth of US Industry - Huffington Post | Manufacturing industry | Scoop.it
By offering subsidies, cheap labor, and lax regulations and rigging its currency, China was able to seduce American companies to relocate their manufacturing operations there. Millions of American jobs moved to China, and manufacturing became the underpinning of China's growth and prosperity. But rising labor costs, concerns over government-sponsored I.P. theft, and production time lags are already causing companies such as Dow Chemicals, Caterpillar, GE, and Ford to start moving some manufacturing back to the U.S. from China. Google recently announced that its Nexus Q streaming media player would be made in the U.S., and this put pressure on Apple to start following suit.
