The digital edition of Modern Machine Shop's January 2015 issue is now available.

The digital January 2015 issue of Modern Machine Shop is now available. The cover story delves into ISO 13399, a family of standards that specify a common format for identifying and describing cutting tools. Another feature reports what trends we discovered while at JIMTOF, the Japan International Machine Tool Fair. A third story details the invisible advantage to cutting tool edge prep, while a fourth story discusses tooling up for vertical turning. Our fifth-annual Top Shops survey is now online, so be sure to check that out.

Our Rapid Traverse section highlights two technologies we saw at IMTS—a vending system that uses a carousel with adjustable slots to hold box-shaped contents, and an inspection microscope with automatic focusing capabilities that can streamline the process. This section also highlights how high-speed spindles can be powered by coolant pressure, and it looks into a new website that enables shops with excess tooling to sell it to other shops.

This month’s Better Production section includes case studies about optimizing multitasking using custom clamping, how standardized CNC improved production of power-generation equipment, and how a trunnion table helped a VMC fill a utility roll for a shop.

The Modern Equipment Review section highlights robots and automation.
