Smart Manufacturing

The April issue of Smart Manufacturing takes a nod from springtime, which offers the ability to reflect on the first few months of the year with perspective on what’s working well and what needs improvement. We take a look at the imperative of reskilling, retraining and retaining talent, as well as evaluating the true cost of investment in various automation solutions. We also share a case study about a self-taught machinist who started a company after an employer closed up shop, and give readers a crash course on the ABCs of AGVs and AMRs. Rounding out the issue are features on two leaders in additive manufacturing, as well as a hard look at the new mindset needed to achieve Industry 4.0 adoption at scale.
