Application Of Robots Within The Automotive Industry

*Feature image source: www.manufacturingglobal.com The automotive industry has adopted robots into their manufacturing sector as early as 1961. Since then, robots have been under constant development until 1970, where the creation of integrated circuit sparked automation. Automation enables circuit-based products (such as robots) to operate on their own with limited to no guidance. Continuous research and […]

Additive Manufacturing – A Quick Overview

Recently, the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) and General Electric’s additive manufacturing subset, GE Additive and Malaysia Automotive, Robotics and IoT Institute (MARii) as the strategic partner, held a Additive Manufacturing for Industry 4.0 workshop aimed at industry players within the manufacturing sector. The workshop was held as a platform to promote the […]

Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles: A Quick Look

Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles fall under the same roof as electric vehicles (EVs). This is because hydrogen fuel cells actually power their vehicles with electricity. Unlike conventional vehicles which run on gasoline or diesel, fuel cell vehicles combine hydrogen and oxygen (through electrochemical reactions) to produce electricity. The energy that is created is then stored […]

Proton X70: Creating a Connected Car

Slightly over a month after showing their new SUV to the Malaysian media at a static preview, PROTON have released more details about the Proton X70. The second round of previews for the first co-developed vehicle by Geely and PROTON concentrated on the Integrated Cockpit Information System (GKUI), which will offer owners multiple user functions […]

Design Considerations for Metal Stamping

Stamping, also known as pressing, is a process in which metals are formed into a desired shape. Stamping includes a variety of metal forming processes such as blanking, embossing, bending, flanging, and coining. Stamping is an economical way to form metal components with a variety of characteristics including strength, durability, and wear resistance. In this […]

Design Considerations for Plastics – Here’s How Plastic Components Are Designed To Increase Manufacturability

Today, you can find plastic components in almost all subsystems of the vehicle, including the engine compartment, the interior cabin and the exterior of the vehicle. In the age of energy efficiency, engineering plastics are increasing potential to lower vehicle weights, meaning reducing fuel consumption. Plastics are also highly versatile, and possess longer lifespans. Plastics […]
