The large open house event in Massachusetts will feature more than 50 machines under power in addition to automated cells.

Methods Machine Tools Inc. will host MetalStorm 2017 October 4-5 at its corporate showroom and technical center in Sudbury, Massachusetts. The open house event will showcase manufacturing products designed to enhance productivity and overcome specific manufacturing challenges.

To pre-register for this event at the company’s website.

The event will feature more than 50 machines under power. Live demonstrations will be presented on Yasda, Nakamura-Tome, Kiwa, FANUC, Feeler, and Exeron CNC die sinkers and high-speed milling machines. In addition, the event will display automation solutions including robotic cells and pallet systems. Methods automation specialists will demonstrate postprocessing applications, including 3D vision for bin picking, and a full deburring cell using FANUC robots to deburr and wash parts. Methods will also demonstrate an unattended laser marker that uses a FANUC robot to position and mark parts.

Attendees will be able to participate in technical seminars conducted throughout the two-day event covering topics in geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T), EDM, CAMplete, turn-mill technology, automation, five-axis inspection, turnkey engineering solutions, design for manufacturability and assembly, and more. The seminars are said to be relevant to the automotive, aerospace, medical and defense industries, among others.

  • What Is The Right Way To Become An Aerospace Shop?

    This Atlanta shop succeeded at becoming an aircraft-industry parts supplier. The lessons of its success have a lot to do with commitment and enthusiasm.

  • Composites Machining for the F-35

    Lockheed Martin’s precision machining of composite skin sections for the F-35 provides part of the reason why this plane saves money for U.S. taxpayers. That machining makes the plane compelling in ways that have led other countries to take up some of the cost. Here is a look at a high-value, highly engineered machining process for the Joint Strike Fighter aircraft.

  • Tool Considerations for High Speed Cutting

    Fast CNC processing and high-pressure coolant contribute to removing metal at dramatic rates. But what should a shop know about cutting tools in high speed machining?
