It’s become a tradition for me, as this blog’s moderator, to look back on the year and see which posts resonated best with our readers. I “geek out” running the reports each year wondering what kind of content is going to come out on top. Did you like our posts about additive manufacturing best, or maybe you were really interested in automation? What kinds of content did you prefer? Long-winded, in-depth looks at new technology, brief pieces of news or lighthearted viral-types of shares?

Well, the numbers are now in. Here are the top 10 most popular posts from 2015:

10. Workholding That's on Point

9. Video: Vertical Machining Centers at Taylor Guitars

8. How to Succeed in a Machining Career

7. Shops Differ on Cellphone Policies

6.  What’s It Like to Work in a Machine Shop Underground?

5. Video: C-Axis Interpolation for Turning on a Machining Center

4. Video: Machining API Groove with “Spirograph” Tool Path

3. My Take on Titan 

2. Video: In-House Manufacturing of the Machined Direct Drive Drum Pedal

1. ID Broaching a Blind Hole in 304 Stainless

Aside from realizing that our readers appreciate a well-produced, informative video, I learned that there isn’t a particular technology that stood out as a clear trend this past year. I was a bit perplexed by this at first. How could there NOT be a technology trend on our blog? But then I thought of the big picture: Obviously, there are big trends in manufacturing right now—the Industrial Internet of Things, additive manufacturing and automation, to name just a few—but Modern Machine Shop covers more than just the trends. We cover a wide variety of day-to-day manufacturing topics that we hope you find useful and informative. Our hope is to continue bringing you this type of information in the upcoming year.
