The March issue of Gear Production (a quarterly supplement to Modern Machine Shop) contains two examples of shops that were able to not only embrace, but optimize equipment and software to streamline production. Click the cover image above to access the digital edition and read about:

  • How a shop serving the mining industry eliminated multiple machining steps on large gears with a 6-meter profile grinder.
  • A shop that optimized its separate production paths for “cut-teeth-only” and “make-complete” gear jobs via scheduling and resource allocation software.

This issue also includes an overview of waterjet machining for gear production and new product coverage.
