Find Your Speed Outside of Machining

This short-lead-time mold shop achieves its most significant time savings by looking outside the machining cycle. However, one of those elements outside the cycle—palletized setup—ultimately led to cycle time savings via five-axis machining.


Taking on Titanium

The challenge for the aerospace machine shop is to produce titanium parts productively and profitably. The challenge for the machine tool builder is to help such shops meet this challenge.


Five-Axis Volumetric Error Compensation for Large Machine Tools

System simultaneously corrects tool position in multiple axes to tighten machining accuracies on large machines that cut complex shapes.


Another Angle On HSM

The savings in setup time were welcome enough, but this mold maker found that a 3+2 machining center also accelerated its use of high speed machining.


The Progress of a Progressive Die Maker

This shop sees no long-term threat in the reality of lower prices. Machine tool investments related to various die components allow the shop to use skilled labor more efficiently.


Cutting Spiral Bevel Gears On A Five-Axis Machining Center

To produce high-precision ring gears in low- to mid-volumes, an emerging option is the use of five-axis machining centers. Mitsui Seiki CNC vertical and horizontal machining centers are being used in this application.


Compact Micromachining Center

 This machining center with a work cube of 4 inches was designed specifically for micromachining.


What Is The Right Way To Become An Aerospace Shop?

This Atlanta shop succeeded at becoming an aircraft-industry parts supplier. The lessons of its success have a lot to do with commitment and enthusiasm.


Getting New Business with Big Machines

These shops saved themselves from dependence on the declining automotive sector thanks in part to their commitment to large-scale machining capacity.


No Need For Speed

In this shop, high speed machining makes sense at 4,000 rpm. While the disciplines the shop put in place made a new 15,000-rpm profiler dramatically more productive, high speed machining would have remained valuable even if the new machine never cam...
