Cramming for Competitiveness

Low-profile clamps contribute to the high-density fixturing this shop needs to make the most of an equipment configuration that is increasingly renowned for reducing setups and keeping the spindle turning.


Machines Make Light of High-Tech Production

Productivity and flexibility are key reasons this company standardized on Haas machines for in-house production of high-tech photonics equipment.


VMC, Pallet System Keep Work Flowing

A Haas VMC with a Midaco pallet changer not only freed additional capacity on the HMCs this shop uses for tight-tolerance production work, but also reduced cycle times in some cases.


Machine-Control Combo Ensures Speed, Precision

Five-axis HMCs from Grob with Sinumerik 840D sl CNCs from Siemens facilitate cost-effective production of cylinder heads at BMW’s motorcycle manufacturing plant in Berlin.


Fixtures Dovetail with Five-Axis Automation

Along with an in-house-designed line of custom dovetail fixtures, machines with the right features for automation provide benefits for both this five-axis specialist and its customers.


Postprocessing System Eases Technology Adoption

At this aerospace manufacturer, software from ICAM minimizes time spent reworking out-of-the-box postprocessors for new machines and improves confidence in part programs.


Larger Equipment Helps Expand Vision

The largest vertical-capacity Carl Zeiss CMM in the Western hemisphere and four large boring mills from MAG Giddings & Lewis prove critical to machining massive wind turbine components at Three-M Tool and Machine.


Cell’s Benefits Derive From Sum of Its Parts

This shop’s experience with implementing a cell consisting of four robot-fed HMCS demonstrates that success depends on more than automation alone.


Automated VMC Fills Capacity Gap

A new Feeler VMC from Methods Machine Tools has not only met this manufacturer’s need for additional capacity, but also taken on more work than initially expected.


Uniformity Paves the Way for Flexibility

Standardizing on one brand of machines provides the flexibility this firearm component manufacturer needs to accommodate a variety of custom component designs.
