Agilent to Expand High-Volume Manufacturing Line in Colorado to Produce High-Quality Molecules
Agilent Technologies Inc. today announced it will expand its state-of-the-art production facility in Frederick, Colorado, that develops and manufactures “oligos,” which are short DNA and RNA molecules used to create nucleic acid-based therapeutics. Oligos hold the potential to be used in developing treatments for cancer, COVID-19, cardiovascular disease, rare and infectious diseases, and other conditions. The expansion will more than double the current capacity for manufacturing therapeutic oligos at the Frederick site.

Agilent expects the supplier market for therapeutic oligos to exceed $750 million in 2025 with projected double-digit annual growth over the next five years. The addition of the higher-volume manufacturing line will help Agilent meet this growing demand from leading pharmaceutical and biotech companies. Customer shipments from the new line are expected to begin by the end of 2022.

A Strong Partnership between SLM Solutions and AMEXCI Accelerates Industrialization of Metal-Based Additive Manufacturing

AMEXCI | March 03, 2021

AMEXCI and SLM Solutions are ready together to accelerate the industrialization of metal-based Additive Manufacturing. AMEXCI has invested in the Selective Laser Melting machine, which is labeled as SLM500. This investment is done to achieve and to create the basis for surged productivity and part quality. The partnership aims to boost industrialization and support companies. So, that they can successfully implement Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies for serial production of complex metal parts. On this, Edvin Resebo, CEO of AMEXCI mentions “After worked together for some time, we are delighted to take the next steps and strengthen the cooperation between AMEXCI and SLM Solutions in future. We can see technology as a strong complement alongside our existing collaborations. About the industrialization of AM, we see a growing potential in the Nordic region for the future. From an AMEXCI perspective, SLM Solutions showcases a strapping understanding of what’s important and what needs to be in place for AM as an industrial manufacturing process.” As part of the partnership, definite case studies will also be used to evaluate Additive Manufacturing. Also, it will test the competitive industry advantages of different machines and technologies offered by SLM Solutions. Besides, AMEXCI also checks the use of the currently introduced SLM machine NXG XII 600 for industrialized series production. Sam O’Leary, CEO of SLM Solutions also mentions that AMEXCI works with a wide range of industries, especially in the Nordic region. It is a proud moment to contribute as a solution partner to support AM business cases of their customers. To provide consulting services throughout the customer's AM journey is a goal of SLM Solutions in this partnership. The root cause for the cooperation is AMEXCI’s investment in the latest SLM500 from SLM Solutions. The machine provides features for industrial series production. As the first quad-laser system in the market, the machine is preferably suited for the rapid cost-effective production of large metal parts. The multi-laser overlap strategy with up to four 700 Watt lasers ensures enormous efficiency. The ability to change the build cylinder minimizes machine downtime, maximizes productivity, and reduces cost as well.

Building up the Edge

IndustryWeek | May 26, 2020

Manufacturing is going to find a new normal. And as manufacturers regain traction on their digital journeys, data creation, collection and manipulation levels will continue to intensify. After all, how well manufacturers manage data will play a pivotal role in determining the success of their digital pursuits. Of course, there are infrastructure impacts to prioritizing so much data. Manufacturers now realize the importance of real time capabilities, which understandably increases the interest in 5G. As manufacturers continue to leverage data it has the potential to change the shape of the network infrastructure dramatically. After all, central cloud models were not designed to handle the rising tide of data, explains Veea Senior Vice President Kurt Michel. “The pendulum shifts between smarter centralized processing to distributed processing, and each time the shift occurs, an imbalance is created between the data transport and compute capabilities in the center of the network and the edge,” says Michel. “The pendulum is currently swinging from the cloud-based data center model to one placing more demands of processing data closer to its creation point – in this round driven by 5G.”
