The digital edition of Modern Machine Shop's December issue is now available.

The digital December issue of Modern Machine Shop is now available. The cover story details how U.S. investment in machine tools is poised to reach a remarkable level. Another feature discusses how one shop uses an atypical means to fixture thin parts that are prone to flexing when conventional workholding clamps are used. A third story details how a shop that specializes in precision thread grinding not only provides an environment in which its machinists can fully focus on challenging tasks, but also the advanced equipment needed to accurately complete them.

Our Rapid Traverse section features three short technical pieces about manufacturing titanium.

This month’s Better Production section includes case studies about how face mills kept a shop from making a large capital expenditure, how software helped race-team mechanics become CNC programmer-machinists, and how a cutting tool helped an automotive manufacturer implement a design change, and how a video measuring system ensures diamond quality for waterjets.

The Modern Equipment Review section highlights machining center equipment.
