Beyond MMS Online
Whether or not you're aware of it, MMS and MMS Online have some "relatives"—both in print and online— that you should know about.
Other properties launched by our parent company, Gardner Publications, offer very deep, informative sites that may deserve a bookmark or two in your browser.
Products Finishing—Our second oldest magazine (1936) offers up a Web presence for the full range of finishing, coating and plating technologies (www.pfonline.com). Exhaustive technical archives, eight "Clinics" (which put you in touch with industry and technology experts) and numerous databases make up only part of this dynamic site.
Automotive Design & Production—This, you just have to visit to understand. The AD&P magazine/Web site/vibe must be seen (www.autofieldguide.com) to be appreciated. At once informative, irreverent, technical and astoundingly relevant, AD&P regularly delivers a perspective that manufacturing managers can use to improve their stature as an Automotive Supplier.
Plastics Technology—This Web site (www.ptonline.com) offers up more for machine tool professionals than the name implies. A wealth of data and technical info regarding injection molding and die/mold technologies may be awfully compelling to you, as well.
Production Machining—This site (www.production-machining.com) serves as the online component of PM magazine, the screw machining industry's premier publication and a sister to MMS. The Web site was formerly the Screw Machining Zone on MMS Online, and there you will find a wealth of info, from Swiss-types to rotary transfer machines to tooling & workholding specifics for "turning & churning."
Job Shop Site Of The Month
General Tool (www.gentool.com) is a multi-faceted contract manufacturer based in Cincinnati, Ohio. You'll find its site has employed a rather unique navigation system/graphic that requires you to mouse-over to see various topics. But it's worth the effort. General Tool presents its many experiences and competencies in several sections, including those for machining, aerospace, tool & die, and other disciplines.
