As Seen In Modern Machine Shop
CNC Machining as a Business Strategy for 3D Printing
As the additive manufacturing company 3rd Dimension Industrial 3D Printing prepares for production, it has one critical advantage over the competition: a standalone CNC machine shop.
Lean Manufacturing Means Taking Nothing for Granted
As foreign competition undercut Valtech Corp.'s business throughout the aughts, the company had a choice to make: Switch production to CNC machining for one of its products, or abandon the product line. Starting from scratch with older machine tools has helped the company scrutinize each step of its processes.
At Purdue University, Emergency Production of PPE and Ventilator Fittings
After campus had largely shut down, several labs and departments at the venerated engineering school organized with local hospitals to manufacture critical parts needed to fight the coronavirus.
CNC Machining and Motorsports
Have a look at some of the new manufacturing equipment spotted in “Machinery Row” at the recent Performance Racing Industry Show.
Why Was CNC Machining on Display at the Biggest Show for Additive Manufacturing?
Machining is a complement to AM as a means of finishing metal 3D printed parts. The increasing adoption of AM for production means more need for postprocessing, particularly machining.
If at First Your CNC Machine Shop Doesn’t Succeed with Robots, Automate Again
Alexandria Industries struggled with its first robotic machining cell. However, the aluminum extrusion components manufacturer — now with more than 20 robots — discovered that by simplifying and standardizing its automation strategy, it could reap the benefits of unattended machining even for relatively low batch sizes.
Rise Up Industries’ Machine Training Program Rises Up to Help on Many Levels
This CNC machine-operator training program helps individuals prepare for sustainable employment as a vital element for successful reentry into society and departure from gang life.
Overcoming Racing CNC Machine Shop Challenges
Automotive racing teams’ machine shops are essentially job shops. An IMTS panel discussion I moderated highlighted ways Stewart-Haas Racing’s shop meets the challenges of a high-mix/low-volume machining environment.
The Benefits of Being a One-Brand Shop
This shop finds advantages in having CNC machines from a single builder, but the general strategy has benefits that can be applied to any startup shop.
How a Racing Team Machine Shop Is Also a Job Shop
A panel discussion featuring racing legend Tony Stewart, a machining manager from Stewart-Haas Racing, and a lubrication expert from ExxonMobil sheds light on challenges machining parts for a race team and the value of establishing close company relationships.
Managing Risk Is This Shop’s Bold Strategy
Flying S routinely makes bold moves in how it processes machined parts and pursues business growth. This boldness comes from carefully minimizing risks.
Machine Performs 3+2, Simultaneous Five-Axis Milling
IMTS 2018: Haas Automation’s UMC-1000SS five-axis machine is suitable for both five-sided (3+2) and simultaneous five-axis machining.
Using Data to Do Better in Manufacturing
Although the Smart Manufacturing Experience 2018 event in Boston may not have provided a simple, clear definition of “smart manufacturing,” it did provide a broad experience of what smart manufacturing can be like.
Machine Monitoring Enhances Human Resource Functions
Decisions about manufacturing processes are not the only business factors that can be improved by the insights derived from data collected by a machine-monitoring system. For this shop, using this information to strengthen and fine-tune its employee incentive program is a significant benefit, among many others.
Eastern Kentucky Opens CNC Educational Center
The East Kentucky Advanced Manufacturing Institute, in partnership with Haas Automation and Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing, hopes to provide advanced job training to Eastern Kentucky residents.
What Does It Take to Succeed at Machining Hogouts?
Beyond the machining capacity, other important factors relate to the people and the understanding of the process.
Live Tooling for Haas Turret
Heimatec, a manufacturer of live tooling for the North American machine tool industry, has made available an extensive line of tooling for the Haas BMT turret.
Haas Automation Open House Draws 3,100 Attendees
Held at the company’s Southern California headquarters in October, HaasTec highlighted machine demonstrations, tours and industry partner booths.
The DMDII Is a Showcase for Digital Manufacturing
A tour of Siemens’ Digital Manufacturing and Design Innovation Institute in Chicago revealed the potential scope of the “digital enterprise” concept.
Machines with Rotary Tables Increase Productivity While Maintaining Quality
Lie-Neilson Toolworks needed to increase throughput while maintaining quality. Ten FV-2 vertical machining centers, three TR210 rotary tables and an ST-20 turning center with bar feeders from Haas has resulted in a 10- to 15-percent increase in capacity.
Applying Automotive Machining Lessons to Aerospace
Although motorsports are a natural focus for a shop owned by a former NASCAR driver, five-axis machining and an emphasis on process planning have opened the door to new aerospace work.
