Manufacturing Digital Highlights Earthquake-Proof Furniture, the Sustainable Automotive Industry, and Wage Costs in China

NORWICH, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Jun 11, 2012) - Innovative design runs through this month's issue as Manufacturing Digital highlights the world's first true 'Earthquake-Proof Table' hoping to safeguard the millions of people living in the world's most earthquake-prone regions. Honda continues to lead environmental-commitment within the automotive industry by launching its 'Green Dealer' initiative, and we showcase the latest products exhibited at this year's Gadget Show Live.

Hoping to dispel some of the recent speculation, this issue's main feature considers the impact of rising wage costs throughout China, and what the potential outcomes for manufacturers operating in the region.

Industry expert Raja Bondada discusses the importance of integrating lean thinking into financial processes so as to fully realise the benefits of a business-wide lean philosophy, and a representative from Printronix, Olivier Evain, considers how incorporating line matrix printers within manufacturing processes can raise traceability and performance.

Some positive news for the US as recent trends suggest an upswing for the country's manufacturing industry as global supply chains are re-established and businesses emerge from the recession as leaner and more efficient.

Finally, Louise Perryman, an authority on computerised Health & Safety systems, counts the costs of mismanaging traditional Health & Safety processes and the multitude of advantages incorporating a computerised system could deliver.
