Todd Schuett and I conducted an experiment during one of my most recent shop visits. Todd is MMS Online’s video contributor. Find some of his recent work here and here. He proposed that we go together to visit Die Tech & Engineering so that he could capture footage for online video that would closely complement the article I would be writing. Unfortunately for Die Tech, the result was one of the more intrusive shop visits I’ve ever done. The photo above conveys a sense of what it was like to have a video crew invade this mold shop’s production floor. However, the people of this shop could not have been more gracious—and I think the content and quality of the video are fitting rewards the imposition. You can read the article here, and also see the video presentations about Die Tech’s inspection strategy and its use of five-axis machining.

It turned out I would soon see a film crew in a machine shop again—this time as part of a much larger project. It was in 3D. “The Edge Factor” is a new show assisted by Modern Machine Shop that will bring CNC machining to a mainstream audience. Details are coming soon—watch this space for more.
