The workshop’s goal is to identify the key industry factors driving innovation in advanced manufacturing technology and the measurement- and standards-related research and development needed to enable these innovations.
“This workshop is part of NIST’s commitment to focus on the critical role of technological innovation in promoting a healthy future for U.S. manufacturing,” says Howard Harary, Manufacturing and Engineering Laboratory acting director and workshop chair. “Wide participation from the manufacturing sectors is essential to identifying the most important cross-cutting issues.”
Discussions will cover sustainability, flexibility, advanced processes, supply chain integration, science-based modeling and simulation, manufacturing networks and communications, and automation and robots. Other topics will include intelligence and optimization of manufacturing systems, high throughput, high-accuracy measurement technologies for factory floor production and the increased pace of innovation cycles.

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.
Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...
At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.
No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...
Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.
Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
