Shops running high-volume jobs are particularly interested in preventing machine downtime. A new remote spindle monitoring technology offers a way to predict spindle issues before they become major problems that adversely affect production. In this video, GTI Spindle’s president, Tom Hoenig, explains some of the ways remote spindle analysis can identify specific machine problems such worn bearings, unbalanced tools and low drawbar force.

  • Measuring Part Geometry On The Shop Floor

    Measuring workpiece dimensions is relatively simple for machine operators but measuring workpiece geometry which involves more complex comparisons of part shape to an ideal shape--is now also practical on the shop floor. The gaging equipment for doing this is coming down in price while becoming easier to use.

  • 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.

  • Standardizing The Measurement Process To Find The Right Gage

    Guidelines used to standardize the measuring process can provide a good basis for making gage decisions.
