Machine shops supporting race teams are essentially job shops. They don’t know what new part team engineers will design and need them to machine in short order and often in small batches. As a result, they consider the same types of advanced machining equipment, workholding devices, CAD/CAM software and automated processes to complete these parts as fast as possible.

Some of these challenges will be discussed in a panel discussion Modern Machine Shop’s Executive Editor Derek Korn is moderating featuring Tony Stewart, the three-time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion and co-owner of Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR). The 90-minute event is titled “The Winning Advantage: Lessons from the Stewart-Haas Racing CNC Shop,” and will feature a panel discussion, a Q&A session and an autograph session with Tony.

HP Showcasing the Future of 3D Mass Production at IMTS


The era of 3D mass production is here. Will you be part of it?

Throughout the year, Modern Machine Shop (MMS) has written a lot about two topics—IMTS 2018 and June 1928. The former is the most influential event in the machining industry. The latter is the month and year Gardner Business Media introduced Modern Machine Shop to the machining industry. What has made covering those two topics so meaningful (and so much fun) is the people and the progress they represent.

In revisiting 90 years of manufacturing reporting, it is not just the technology that stands out, it’s the stories. Stories about people that founded and built businesses. Stories about people that forced innovation and accelerated change. Stories about people that invented products and created processes. Stories that happened in the past. Stories happening in the present. Stories that will help write the future.

Live Blogging: This Week, It's All About IMTS

All this week, we are blogging live from the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS), which runs September 10-15 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois. The show features thousands of exhibiting companies and hundreds of thousands of registrants, but AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology says that this show is special in its focus on providing resources and technologies aimed at job shops

The show is also packed with co-located shows as well as conferences, like the Top Shops Conference and the Additive Manufacturing Conference. Add to that the new technology and ideas that can help solve your manufacturing problems, and there’s obviously a lot to cover!
