Today, the manufacturing sector must evolve and become more innovative. To know the real innovations in manufacturing, it is important to know the steps or processes in this field, while trying to make a quick assessment.
INNOVATIONS BROUGHT BY RECYCLING IN MANUFACTURING IN GENERAL
One way to improve production is through product design changes that could increase the potential for recycling and reuse of components and materials at the end of the product life cycle. To recover value, companies can meet their resource needs by recycling and reusing traditionally discarded materials. This increased value recovery process is accomplished with an excellent reverse logistics program. Those involved in waste management and the use of great technological advances are leading the way in developing services that allow manufacturers to take advantage of materials left over after production or after the end of a product’s life cycle.
THE IMPORTANT INNOVATION OF SMART FABRICS IN TEXTILE MANUFACTURING
For example, thanks to innovations in textile manufacturing, there are sportswear that could self-adjust to increase performance and breathability, or military uniforms that could adapt to changes in climate and regulate temperature. Your clothes help define you, but the fabrics you wear haven’t evolved much until now. Recent breakthroughs in fiber and fabric processing are enabling engineers and manufacturers to design and produce fibers and fabrics that can see, hear, smell, communicate, store and convert energy, regulate temperature, monitor health status and change color. This innovation is a link to the phenomenon of connected objects.
INNOVATIONS IN THE FIELD OF AUTOMOTIVE MANUFACTURING
The mass production of electric or hybrid cars has become the norm, as part of the fight against global warming. The major car brands have invested several billion euros in research, production and marketing. As electric cars start to become a success with consumers, it has been necessary to adapt. Thus, a new generation of charging stations for electric vehicles has been developed, and broadband semiconductors will equip these new charging stations. They will be 10 times smaller, more efficient and able to charge cars faster than existing models. In the near future, mass production of these charging stations will be implemented in the United States and Europe.
