Mouser Electronics Announces Final Call for Entries in First-of-Its-Kind Design Challenge to 3D Print an Object in Space
Mouser Electronics Inc., a leading global distributor of electronic components, today announced the final call for entries for the exciting and imaginative International Space Station (I.S.S.) Design Challenge, part of Mouser's award-winning Empowering Innovation Together™ program. The contest is open until midnight (Central Time) Oct. 7, 2016.
Many of the OEMs were showing how their smart products and processes were driving new business models like servitization (manufacturing firms developing the capabilities to provide services and solutions that supplement their traditional product offerings) and new "power-by-the-hour" offerings.

Ultra-lightweight decentralized vacuum generators are compact, reliable and efficient
The company says that while autonomous cars and trucks receive a lot of attention, the complexities of driving at speed outdoors means that commercial viability is still a distant future.
Available with either check valve or flow resistance technology, and configured to use either integrated vacuum generation or an external vacuum generator (pump/blower), the grippers are able to satisfy the needs of various industrial segments and practical applications.
The new robot can withstand harsh environments and meets the requirements of protection ratings IP66/67; ideal for foundry material handling and machine tending

From Sewbo: Sewbo Inc. on Thursday announced that it has achieved the long-sought goal of automated sewing, by using an industrial robot to sew together a T-shirt. This milestone represents the first time that a robot has been used to sew an entire article of clothing. Despite widespread use in other industries, automation has failed to find a place in apparel manufacturing due to robots’ inability to handle limp, flexible fabrics. Sewbo avoids these hurdles by temporarily stiffening fabrics, making it easy for conventional robots to build clothes as if they were made from sheet metal. Afterwards, the process is reversed to produce soft, fully assembled garments. “Our technology will allow manufacturers to create higher-quality clothing at lower costs in less time than ever before,” said Jonathan Zornow, the technology’s inventor. “Avoiding labor issues and shortening supply chains will help reduce the complexity and headaches surrounding today’s intricate global supply network. And digital manufacturing will revolutionize fashion, even down to how we buy our clothes by allowing easy and affordable customization for everyone.” Sewbo performed their feat using an off-the-shelf industrial robot, which they taught to operate a consumer sewing machine. Having successfully proved its core concept, Sewbo is now expanding its team and working towards commercializing its technology... ( company webpage , MIT article )
