Beyond Secondaries: Vertical Machining Center Enhances OEM's Capability

Like many turning based shops, Clippard Instrument Laboratory first applied vertical machining centers to perform secondary operations on its screw machined parts. That view has changed for the better.


Small, But Mighty

Machining center designed for small spaces.


Keeping Watch on Small Parts

From watch parts to exotic medical applications, this shop takes on the world of micromachining.


A Big-Picture View of Micromachining

 Matrix Tooling makes injection molds for components that have features you cannot see.


How Micromachining Patience Speeds Prototype Production

A molder of tiny, silicone components for the medical industry explains how a patient, conservative approach to micromachining enables it to deliver prototypes faster.


What Makes for an Effective, Production-Oriented VMC?

Extended VMC cycle times due to modest spindle performance and slow non-cutting functions can increase costs for high-volume applications. However, new VMC offerings can minimize cycle times while maximizing competitiveness for production work.


Otherworldly Precision

A contract shop produces critical parts for the Curiosity rover that will soon depart for Mars.


Transforming Industrial Robots into Precision Machine Tools

Robots fitted with an adaptive control system get real-time course corrections throughout the machining cycle.


Doosan Makes a Power Play

The South Korean builder is directing its focus toward rigid machine platforms capable of heavy cuts in tough materials.
