This paper investigates the possibility of utilising an additive screen printing process with conductive ink and adhesive together with a degradable substrate to identify whether this process offers a viable alternative to current subtractive methods of PCB manufacture. Existing manufacturing...
Developing sustainable approaches to manufacture is a critical global concern. Key measures towards this include practicing design for environment (ecodesign), for example by improving remanufacturing efficiency and effectiveness. Remanufacturing is a process of bringing used products to a...
Total productive maintenance (TPM), total maintenance assurance, preventive maintenance, reliability-centered maintenance (RCM), and many other innovative approaches to maintenance problems all aim at enhancing the effectiveness of machines to ultimately improve productivity. Each of these...
The use of polycrystalline cubic boron nitride (PCBN) cutting tools in hard turning applications is continuously growing with the number of commercially available grades increasing, allowing new application areas to be explored. In order to take full advantage of the benefits offered by PCBN it...
Autonomous, elementary units of production, co-operating in temporary networks, are considered as a key organisational form of enterprise in the 21st century. A scientific approach is provided by networks based on customer-oriented, directly linked, smallest autonomous service units, called...
Selective laser sintering (SLS) is currently recognized as a leading process in the new field of solid freeform fabrication (SFF). SLS extends the applications to machinery and automobiles due to various employing materials. In order to develop more elaborate and speedy system for fabricating...
Sustainability issues in manufacturing and production are growing exponentially. Initially referring to environmental considerations, sustainability now also encompasses social, ethical and economical responsibilities. This paper focuses on engineering and manufacturing SMEs and outlines a...
This paper considers a job sequencing problem for a single numerical controlled machining center. It is assumed that all the considered jobs must be processed on a single machine provided with a tool magazine with C positions, that no job requires more than C tools to be completely machined and...
In recognition of the need for more effective and efficient factory system integration solutions, this paper improves the method proposed in our previous work, focusing on new mechanisms to bridge the gap between shop floor automation and factory information systems. As one of the mainstream...
