These articles sample possibilities for additive manufacturing of large metal parts.
One of the largest vertical turning and milling centers in the country will be installed in this Cincinnati-area job shop. Although installing the foundation for this huge machine was a massive undertaking, the company is building on other “foundations” as well.
A contract manufacturer specializing in ongoing production programs describes the investments involved in winning this work.
The key to success (and the primary challenge) for any job shop is minimizing turnaround time for non-repeating work. This Indiana shop shares some of its strategies for reducing lead times for the various large-scale jobs it encounters.
This shop leverages large-scale multitasking machines. Learn why, and see one of its horizontal boring mills turning a terribly big mining industry part.
As demonstrated at this Cincinnati-area shop, machines that both mill and turn shine brightest when workpieces are massive.
Does titanium justify a machine that is engineered for this metal?
This video testimonial provides an inside look at the myriad benefits Major Tool & Machine has realized from a new CNC platform—but like other, similar projects, implementing that platform required a complete motion system overhaul.
One of the most inhibiting limitations of additive manufacturing is build size, but that is currently being overcome.
