Normally, Stein Seal would have no problem machining a large, bell-shaped workpiece like the one it contracted for in 2013.

Turn to page 78 to read the full story.

Also in this issue:

  • How one shop used a web- and video-based training program tailored to its own specific practices to enable new hires to progress in stages from trainee to senior process engineer;
  • How data can prove the process for unattended machining; and
  • How MQL can be used for more effective deep-hole drilling.
