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

The digital November issue of Modern Machine Shop is now available. The cover story details how it might be better to hire an employee based on his or her strengths and aptitude rather than a hard set of skills. Another feature discusses how one shop went from making low-volume, high-complexity medical and aerospace parts to a high-volume production line. A third story delves into reducing setups with automated pallet systems while a fourth feature takes a look at “dengeling”—an alternative to grinding, polishing and shot peening.

Our Rapid Traverse section is completely devoted to recapping IMTS 2014. More than 20 photos with extended captions will help you get a sense of what we found notable at this year’s show.

This month’s Better Production section includes case studies about how CAD/CAM software helped an aerospace shop machine aluminum guitars, how HMCs helped bow manufacturer Mathews improve its technology and productivity, and how G-code simulation ensures precise machining of large parts.

The Modern Equipment Review section highlights turning equipment.
