2013 State of the Industry: Don Lane, Makino

Don LaneMakino"Manufacturers face several unique needs, including trained manpower, process engineering capability, automated technologies and reliable unattended machine operation. To meet these needs, there is a growing trend toward investments in services and support beyond the initial machine tool investment. To address shortages in trained manpower, manufacturers are projected to outsource several engineering roles to machine suppliers, relying on these partners for a greater share of machine monitoring, maintenance and repair."(Click on photo to enlarge it)
Don Lane is the president and chief executive officer of Makino, Inc., which designs and manufactures horizontal and vertical machining centers, electrical discharge machines and production systems for the die/mold, aerospace and automotive industries in North and South America.
