Automation is the use of equipment in a system of manufacturing or other production process that needs minimal human intervention. Automation can also be the use of a machine designed to follow a predetermined sequence of individual operations. The post What is automation? appeared first on Medical Design and Outsourcing.
3D printing, or additive manufacturing, is the process of making three-dimensional solid objects from a digital file. This contrasts to subtractive processes, such as the NC machining of traditional manufacturing, in which material is removed rather than being added. An object is made in an additive manner by depositing successive layers of material until the […]
