Siri - “My new Digital Assistant”

If you’re anything like me with my old iPhone 6s, you only used Siri to get information on trivial things like “Hey Siri, how many drams in a shot of Glenlivet?” and “Hey Siri, what movie is on the Hallmark Channel tonight?” She was a novelty at best and the only time you could use Siri hands free, with the 6s, was when the phone was plugged into a charger. What I never figured, until a few weeks ago, was what a huge asset Siri can be for a Road Warrior.

VLC 200 GT from EMAG: Combining technologies to machine state-of-the-art transmission components

It is no secret that e-mobility is a growing market. A current study by the consulting firm Strategy Analytics, predicts the production output of “electric vehicles” will increase to 25% of the global market by 2025. It should be noted that the study uses “electric” as an umbrella term that covers all aspects of e-mobility, i.e. hybrids, fuel cell drives, and pure electric vehicles, and that the markets are highly heterogeneous. It is expected that 50% of the production will take place in China, and the other 50% will be throughout the rest of the world.

Heterogeneous markets means multiple manufacturers, even more models, and diverse drive concepts. In addition, about three quarters of vehicles will continue to have traditional combustion engines.  This puts production planners and automotive industry suppliers in a difficult situation: How do you manage this product diversity and increasing production volumes? For many years, EMAG has been providing answers to these questions with a broad range of production solutions for components used mainly in powertrain applications.

2019 EMAG Technology Forum: Solutions for Tomorrow’s Smart Car Production

Digitalization and e-mobility—just one of these megatrends would already be enough to unleash massive transformations in the manufacturing and machinery industries. But when both occur at the same time, what should change and how should businesses prepare? These questions will be the main focus of the 2019 EMAG Technology Forum to be held on May 15 and 16 in Salach, Germany. The event takes a comprehensive look into the future and at the same time provides very concrete answers to these questions and more. It will also be an opportunity to bring together both science and practice. Renowned experts will talk about “Tomorrow’s Mobility” and “Big Data” in the manufacturing process and EMAG experts will show new production solutions for e-mobility in a variety of sessions within the theme area.
