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

The digital March 2015 issue of Modern Machine Shop is now available. The cover story discusses the evolution of micromachining and some lessons one shop in particular has learned along the way. Other stories discuss how advances in wire EDM technology have made it acceptable for machining critical aerospace parts, how a job shop relying on homegrown talent was able to win aerospace and defense work while expanding its five-axis capabilities, and how additive manufacturing already plays a major role in aircraft production.

Our Rapid Traverse section takes an in-depth look at spindle housings and motors, an automotive cylinder coating for high-production applications, and a multi-axis workholding system that uses a three-side dovetail.

This month’s Better Production section explores how a shopfloor CMM reduces production bottlenecks, how in-house CNCs helped an automotive shop gain manufacturing control, and how one shop used CAM software as the key to its continuous improvement efforts.

The Modern Equipment Review section highlights machining centers.
