The March/April digital edition of Manufacturing AUTOMATION is now available!

Writer Jacob Stoller takes a look at the trend in Canada, and what upgrades in automation infrastructure are required to achieve “batch size one.”
Also in this issue, you’ll find:
Gamification: why it matters to manufacturing
Can your respirator program accommodate physical changes?
Advancing autonomous control
An award-winning AI and simulation application has potential in process manufacturing
How Canadian manufacturers can use additive manufacturing to streamline design processes for mass production of parts
And much more, including new products in automation software, electronic components, enclosures & workstations, programmable control, robotics and sensors.
