Innovating on Borrowed Ideas Sets Wind Turbine Record
A system said to break new ground in manufacturing large wind turbine components is based on tried-and-true automotive manufacturing concepts.
No doubt, similar origins underlie the development of many other manufacturing technologies that might be considered innovative—and that fact doesn’t make them any less so. A quote attributed to French filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard reads: “It’s not where you take things from; it’s where you take them to.” This message can apply to manufacturing as much as any other discipline. Keep your eyes open, and you might just find something to borrow and make into an innovation of your own.
