Death of the Assembly Line PDF Print E-mail

Death of the Assembly Line The First Industrial Revolution was characterized by cotton mills, steam engines, and the development of iron-making techniques. The transition away from an agricultural-based economy and towards machine-based manufacturing had a profound global impact on society and urban growth. In the late 1800’s, a Second Revolution took place – workers gathered along assembly lines to mass produce goods with uniformity and more importantly cost savings for the manufacturer. Over time these processes became standards as competitive edge became tied to the cost of labor. Industry moved overseas to take advantage of lower wages and ultimately our economy suffered in the midst of diminishing jobs. We are now standing on the threshold of a Third Industrial Revolution, characterized by agility. The focus is moving back to the consumer – and jobs are moving back to the US. No longer will manufacturers be forced to mass produce goods in order to recoup development costs. Additive manufacturing, better known as 3D printing, will enable the cost-effective manufacturing of products in small batches, tailored to the needs of the end user. The future of innovation is in the hands of small businesses intimately connected with their customers.

“Our decision to move the manufacturing process from China to the US is about more than just dedication to our economy. It’s about reducing our carbon footprint. It’s about reducing our response time. It’s about being close to the very people we serve,” explains Jeff Bollengier of CaliBowl®, a California-based manufacturer.

The Obama Administration recognizes the impact additive manufacturing will have on the factory of the future. Through the “We Can’t Wait” initiative, a public-private partnership has been formed to support this modern revolution. The National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute (NAMII) includes manufacturing firms, universities, community colleges, and nonprofit organizations that are all dedicated to investing in the technology and skills necessary to compete in a global economy. “I’m pleased that we are taking steps to strengthen American manufacturing by launching a new manufacturing institute in Ohio,” said President Obama. “This institute will help make sure that the manufacturing jobs of tomorrow take root not in places like China or India, but right here in the United States of America. That’s how we’ll put more people back to work and build an economy that lasts.”

Recovering from one of the worst economic declines in recent history will be continue to be a tedious process, however the investments into our own workforce and innovative technologies will put America back on top and pay dividends for decades to come.

5 Ways to create ANYTHING PDF Print E-mail

Tcolor-sm.jpghere are really 5 ways to use Digital Reality's services. First we offer a marketplace and online community for you to buy and sell truly unique products. We've designed our entire site around giving you the ability to get involved not only in design but also in communicating with others to help us all develop new ways to use our services.

First and foremost, we give you the ability to upload and sell your ideas. Design it in 3D and sell it online. If you don;t know how to design, you can team up with a designer and you will both own the idea and product and split profits for sales on that item. Third, we offer a mail-in service that allows you to send us broken parts and we can recreate them for you. Bets of all, if its valuable, you can have us store the model for sale and let you earn money every time it sells to someone else! We also offer the ability for bureaus to sign up and make our products (distributed manufacturing) and finally, we provide the community with support and education.

One of the coolest things we have in store for the community is our bureau sign-up and bid system. So you have a 3D printer or a bureau? Well increase your revenue by creating an account and bidding to produce products available for sale in our community. Its the distributed manufacturing portion of our Made-To-Order Digital Manufacturing Enterprise patent. Browse and bid by category, produce what you are best at and provide a service to our customers, make money and help grow the market for rapid prototyping and direct digital manufacturing in the most amazing ways.

We're especially proud of our belief that if you provide a truly innovative way for people to shop for and buy products that better meet their individual tastes, preferences and needs that the products we make will simply sell themselves...

What's with the Uber? PDF Print E-mail

According to Wikipedia, during the 2000s, Über became known as a synonym for super due to games and gamers excessively using the word. We chose Kraftwü because we wanted to convey that Kraftwürx, like the word Über (which translates to over, above, beyond) is the best or ultimate Customization Site on the internet. Kraftwürx was born out of conversations in 2003-2004. We initially talked about a way to make truly custom class rings and allow students to design their own products in 3D, like playing a video game. We were so narrow minded. In 2006 we filed a patent called Made-To-Order Digital Manufacturing Enterprise. Its a fancy way of saying we had the idea to combine 3D models, 3D printing, the internet and some fancy software to automate how and where products get made, just like in a traditional factory but more like the Matrix movie where everything happens virtually! We knew we were on to something and we may not have been first to market but Kraftwurxs IS the next generation of made-to-Order products designed by you! We've gone to great pains to make your shopping experience, your selling experience, your manufacturing experience and your product experience as enjoyable as possible. Some of the things we offer include a way to send us your item even broken items and we can reproduce it for you. We can also add your item to our database and every time it sells, you get paid! Another great feature is co-create. If you don't know how to design something, ask for help and team-up with a designer to turn your idea into a 3D product and sell it to the world. Share, create, sell...we like to call it Infinite Possibilities! We thought it was a great idea and we hope you will too!
