Building a Framework for Fast Product Innovation

Many companies that develop components, such as those based on fabricated metals and other materials, produce new innovations very slowly. Why? Because they equate innovation with risk, and risk with time for testing and rework. Why do they equate innovation with risk?  Because innovation requires different approaches and experimentation, trial and error, success and failure, which is the antithesis of ‘being under control’.  In addition, their top management often came from the manufacturing organization where any variation in the manufacturing process equates directly to lower profit, so there is a bias towards control, uniformity, and predictability.  However, companies like Fab, Tesla and Samsung have shown that incredibly innovative products can be developed and launched to the world market with very high quality and in a short time. Also other companies like Ulbrich, Camfil Farr, Aida-America which innovate in process  can also innovate at a fast pace.  How do they do it?

Rubber Forming Pad History:
Comparisons of Materials and Introduction of Gummilast Polyurethane for Forming Pads and Fluid Cells
Short run forming of complex sheet metal shapes using rubber dies and pads is quick and highly effective. This technique was first accomplished using the Guerin process. After the Second World War, the Wheelon process was developed as an improvement over the Guerin Process. A Wheelon press is capable of manufacturing large, complex, short run parts with economic tooling. This type of hydraulically actuated bladder forming is widely used in the aerospace industry today. Read the complete Rubber Forming Pad History: Comparisons of Materials and Introduction of Gummilast Polyurethane for Forming Pads and Fluid Cells white paper.

Choosing the Right Robotic Gun for GMAW Applications
From high-volume, low-variety manufacturing facilities to low-volume, high-variety fabrication shops, robotic GMAW arc welding has become increasingly popular due to the potential weld quality and productivity improvements it can provide. Not only do those benefits make it an attractive investment for growth and profitability, but they can also provide companies with a competitive edge. Read the complete Choosing the Right Robotic Gun for GMAW Applications white paper.

Abtex Corporation

Abtex Corporation manufactures Bradex abrasive filament brushing tools. Since 1979 we have focused exclusively on the formatting of abrasive filaments in various brush configurations. This concentration has afforded us a tremendous understanding of the capabilities and applications of abrasive filament brushing tools. We have also developed the necessary process flexibility in order to modify the characteristics of the brushing tool to optimize it for a specific application.
