Our Pillars of Innovation

3D Printing for Manufacturing

3D Printing for Manufacturing

  • 3D Printing - 3D Printing leverages the rapid advancement of additive manufacturing innovation, enabling the creation of complex parts in ways not possible with traditional manufacturing.
  • Naresh Shanker: How 3D Printing Will Change Global Supply Chains - Events in 2020 have made it clear that today's global supply chains leave manufacturers and their customers vulnerable to external risks outside of their control. Chief Technology Officer Naresh Shanker explains how integrating 3D printing into current manufacturing operations will add flexibility and resiliency to supply chains.
  • This huge Xerox printer can create metal parts for the US Navy - Xerox VP and GM of 3D Printing Tali Rosman and I. Emre Gunduz from the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) talk about the first installation of the Xerox® ElemX™ 3D Printer at NPS and the vision of putting an ElemX on a Navy ship.
  • The US Navy’s postgraduate school is taking a stab at metal 3D printing- Xerox VP and GM of 3D Printing Tali Rosman and Walter Smith from the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the Naval Postgraduate School talk to Defense News about how the Xerox ElemX 3D printer can help advance what’s possible to manufacture at sea, easing the burden on the Navy’s supply chain.
  • Nonproprietary Approach to Additive Puts Xerox in Navy Crosshairs- Xerox VP and GM of 3D Printing Tali Rosman talks to IndustryWeek about Xerox’s collaboration with the Naval Postgraduate School and the benefits of the Xerox ElemX compared to other additive manufacturing technologies.
  • Naval Postgraduate School and Xerox Collaborate to Advance Additive Manufacturing Solutions- Xerox Chief Technology Officer and President of PARC Naresh Shanker and Xerox VP and GM of 3D Printing Tali Rosman talk to the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) about their collaboration with Xerox and the vision of integrating additive manufacturing into the military supply chain.
Internet of Things

Internet of Things

  • IoT Sensors - IoT Sensors use semiconductor technology to miniaturize the physics and shrink the entire system. Our technology expertise in micro-systems, imaging, and printed electronics allows us to create unique shapes and form factors to enable mass customization.
  • The Industrial Internet of Things - The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly connecting and bringing the physical world online. This paradigm shift is essential to industrial businesses, transforming everyday objects and critical assets into smart, interconnected systems by leveraging advances in sensors, analytics, models, and AI. Xerox’s Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) is at the forefront of this rapidly changing technology landscape.
  • Naresh Shanker: Manufacturing Without Unplanned Downtime Could Become A Reality Sooner Than You Think - Unplanned downtime in manufacturing is one of the largest causes of lost productivity, causing delays, unhappy customers and lost revenue. But what can manufacturers do to reduce unplanned downtime? Xerox's Chief Technology Officer, Naresh Shanker, talks about how IoT predictive maintenance solutions could be the answer.
  • Solving the Global Problem of Aging Infrastructure with Structural Health Monitoring - Xerox and the Victorian Government are partnering to launch Eloque, a joint venture to commercialize new technology that will remotely monitor the structural health of bridges.
  • DARPA Awards PARC Contract to Expand Ocean Knowledge - Xerox researchers at PARC are working with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to better understand what’s happening over large ocean areas, both on the surface and underwater.
  • The Perfect Internet of Things (IIoT) Platform - In recent years, we’ve seen an evolution of IIoT capabilities, with advances in data science and more accurate/cost-effective sensors leading to broader adoption of IIoT solutions. Despite these tech advances, some limitations remain. Markus Larsson and Kai Goebel from PARC, a Xerox Company, recently sat down at the Industrial Internet of Things USA conference to discuss how solutions can evolve in the IIoT space to create the “perfect platform."
Cleantech

Cleantech

  • Leveraging Innovation to Mitigate Greenhouse Gas Emissions - Climate change driven by greenhouse gas emissions is an existential threat and a defining challenge of the world today. We are tackling this challenge by developing technologies to enable a zero-carbon future while overcoming technical and non-technical barriers to deployment.
  • Naresh Shanker: How Staying Cool Indoors Warms the Planet - How can we make air conditioning more environmentally friendly, especially as more of the world depends on it? Xerox's Chief Technology Officer, Naresh Shanker, outlines several ways forward.
  • Fundamentally Changing the Way Air Conditioning Works - Jessy Rivest, Vice President and General Manager of the Xerox cleantech business, drops by the GreenBiz 350 podcast to chat about how Xerox is working on an electrochemical approach to air conditioning.
  • The Path to Net Zero: Cleantech through the Lens of Impact - Even if all countries around the world meet their current greenhouse gas reduction pledges under the Paris agreement, there’s a 95% chance the earth will warm to levels greater than 2 degrees C, which will have catastrophic effects. We must move faster. Three key areas of impact are Radical Efficiency, Decarbonization, and Greenhouse Gas Management. Jessy Rivest, Vice President and General Manager of the Xerox cleantech business, participates in a panel discussion to talk about how success in each area requires coordinated policy, business, and innovation
