American manufacturing has had a major impact on every state, and the ebb and flow of industrial jobs continues to shape the country. MarketScale’s latest series, Made in America, examines companies creating their products at home and why they do so. John Briggs, author of Simply American, a book that highlights business that still manufacture in the U.S. and how consumers can revitalize the sector, has studied the history of industrial America for years. Over the last half-century, the gl...

Keeping the Chinese economy rolling along in healthy numbers is seen as a large battle for China at present. The still-to-be-resolved US-China trade spat has certainly had an impact on American sentiment towards China, and US-China trade is down significantly as a result of both countries imposing tariffs on a raft of each other’s products.
This has hurt some China-based US manufacturers, reliant on low tariffs within the US-China trade space to keep their China-made products compet...

A drive along the narrow county roads of Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, used to be a sleepy affair. You would spot a pumpkin farm, the odd homestead, and red barn. But a recent visit revealed a cacophonous building site: a factory is emerging in this corner of the Midwest. Where chicken coops once stood, Foxconn, a Taiwanese contract-manufacturing giant best-known for assembling iPhones, has arrived.
When in 2017 the firm announced plans to build a massive factory for high-end televisions, ma...

Here we are now, nine years into the recovery from the Great Recession, a year and a half into a new business-minded presidency, and currently in the wild midst of a digital transformation rocking the entire manufacturing sector.
In many ways, this is probably one of the most exciting, turbulent, and opportunity-rich times manufacturing has seen since the end of World War II. At the heart of it is a movement matching two equal-but-opposite forces simultaneously stymieing and bolstering th...

A trade deficit occurs when a country imports more goods and services than it exports. The macroeconomic explanations are often convoluted and do not make sense to the average voter.
A typical example of a nebulous explanation is: A trade deficit arises as a result of several factors, including overall domestic economic conditions and standards of living; domestic consumption and purchasing compared with savings rates; and the price of goods in the market, which is, in turn, affected by e...

Markus Chmielus, a professor of mechanical engineering and materials science at the University of Pittsburgh, sees a future where industry can easily and affordably 3D print magnetic actuators that can accurately move things like robotic hands, parts grippers, folding solar panels, and perform a host of other tasks without the need of a power supply.
The National Science Foundation shares that vision, backing up the research with a recent $300,000 grant for the Chmielus Lab to bring its w...

“4D” printing is an emerging technology that 3D-prints solid components programmed to change into other shapes when certain environmental parameters - temperature, light, and humidity – are reached. Thus, the “fourth dimension” is, literally, transformation. This ability depends on the development and use of unique programmable materials. Although 4D printing is still an emerging field, it has huge potential for expanding engineering design.
Currently, 4D pri...

Artificial intelligence technology is now making its way into manufacturing, and the machine-learning technology and pattern-recognition software at its core could hold the key to transforming factories in the near future.
While AI is poised to radically change many industries, the technology is well suited to manufacturing, says Andrew Ng, the creator of the deep-learning Google Brain project and an adjunct professor of computer science at Stanford University.
“AI will perfo...

Growing up in upstate New York, David Dussault was one of seven kids living in a three-bedroom home. His father was a factory worker, his mother didn’t work outside the home, and their family was quite poor. But what David’s family lacked in material goods, they made up for in strong relationships, great values, and genuine love. His father was home every night for dinner, and his parents took great care to instill strong moral character in their children.
