Calculated Industries has developed a handheld calculator designed specifically for machinists. The Machinist Calc Pro is built for efficiency-minded machinists, setters, tool-and-die makers, supervisors and owners of small- to mid-sized machine shops who want to increase productivity and profits in the design, layout and setup stages of production, the company says.
The calculator is a dedicated math and reference tool for machining. It is said to provide a complete assortment of essential machine shop solutions and time-saving tap and drill charts that can eliminate wasted steps and reduce tool wear.
