Sonoco ThermoSafe, a unit of Sonoco (NYSE:SON) and a leading global provider of temperature assurance packaging, leverages award winning technology to expand its line of pallet solutions with the launch of the LD7 Half PAG pallet shipper. The Half PAG solution is designed to ship multiple pallet loads, while reducing the cost and operational complexity of bulk shipments by optimizing the use of aircraft ULDs (LD7 air pallets). The Half PAG is available for 2-8°C or 15-25°C temperature ranges with durations in excess of five days. Each solution has a universal pack-out design to be used in both hot and cold seasons while also accommodating the demands of cross-hemispheric shipments.

Automation Today

In automation, design, design engineering, facility, machined parts, manufacturer, manufacturing, manufacturing operations, marketing, technology, workforce by Generis0 Comments

As manufacturers struggle to fill highly skilled production positions—according to NAM (National Association of Manufacturers), “80 percent of manufacturers report a moderate or serious shortage of qualified applicants for skilled and highly skilled production positions”—technology may need to step in to fill the gap. As the article “Automation Today” by FARO Technologies states: “It’s no secret that manufacturing continues to become more automated, and manufacturing output per worker is on the rise.” Smart factories are sought after because they are quickly becoming the “factories of the future,” while growing changes in automation become difficult to ignore. Find out more about the latest advancements in optical 3D measurement and automation technology in the article below including: Advanced Manufacturing; Automated Metrology; and Cobalt.

Product Cost Management: What does your Software do for you?

In cost management, cost reduction, design engineering, manufacturing by Generis0 Comments

Computer-aided design (CAD) is an industrial art that results in lower product development costs and greatly shortened design cycles.  In today’s post we take a closer look aPriori‘s software capabilities to gain a fuller understanding of how 3D CAD Modeling can help developers: Launch new products at or below target cost Avoid overpaying for outsourced parts Maximize cost savings of re-design work Increase the accuracy and speed of RFQ responses aPriori software and services generate hard-dollar product cost savings for discrete manufacturing organizations. Using aPriori’s real-time product cost assessments, employees in sourcing, manufacturing and design engineering make more-informed decisions that drive costs out of products pre- and post-production. Check out the video below to learn How aPriori’s product cost management software can rapidly generate detailed cost estimates using any 3D solid CAD model as the primary input. Costs can be generated for a wide array of manufacturing processes, such as: Sheetmetal Fabrication, Plastic Injection Molding, Casting, Machining, Forging, Powdered Metal, Gear Making, etc. Find out more from aPriori by joining the discussion at the American Aerospace & Defense Summit on December 6-7, 2016, in Scottsdale, AZ!
