An article we published several years ago begins with two companies that merged into one, literally coming together by knocking a hole in the wall that separated their facilities. Though they had occupied adjacent units in the same building prior to one’s acquisition of the other, there had been no exchange of manufacturing knowledge. That exchange (and the resulting benefits) didn’t come until after the two became one.

This story highlights the fact that manufacturers—and likely, many professionals in general—don’t often get a chance to see how other business operate, even if they’re right next door. That’s one reason why Modern Machine Shop emphasizes stories of shops using technology in real applications. It’s also why our editors travel frequently—to chase down those stories, and pull back the curtain on what’s happening next door and around the world.
