Steve LeFever of Profit Mastery explores how even small changes in your margin can have huge impacts in your gross profit because the largest percentage of your costs is tied up in the costs of goods sold.
Sometimes marks caused by the lower die during the bending process can turn a good part into scrap metal, even if the scrapes are very light and have no functional bearing on the part whatsoever. To deal with this problem, it is necessary to reduce or eliminate the movement of the material over the hard shoulders of the die. Here are several ways to do this.
Before discussing specialization within a particular area of safety, Phil La Duke of Rockford Greene first explores the role and duties of the one who typically owns worker safety from “soup to nuts” within a given manufacturing facility.
Many weld failures occur due to lack of fusion when proper attention is not given to this characteristic. Regis Geisler of Lincoln Electric shares a remedy that may help fabricators avoid such problems.
Ways of the Future, Here Now: As more shops seek to maximize their machining uptime, Randy Pearson of Siemens Industry explains how the ability to simulate actual cutting conditions offline offers them many competitive advantages.
These vertical machining centers from Makino are the perfect combination of speed, power and flexibility for job shops competing in automotive, aerospace, medical and other small-component manufacturing applications.
Kyle Zellman of SMW-Autoblok examines how clamp force repeatability affects process capability, deformation problems, released part safety and damage, and can be a solution to reducing your downtime and maintenance costs.
The down-acting HD NT Series press brake from Amada America uses advanced hydraulics for positioning accuracy, independent AC servo motors to drive high efficiency, and bi-directional hydraulic pumps for an extremely fast approach, bending and return speeds for faster cycle times and more parts per hour.
When welding with an E71T-8 electrode in structural steel fabrication and erection, here is a technique that combines the two competing priorities of being able to pause long enough at the toes to flatten out the weld and bring slag to the surface, and having a small enough weave angle in order to avoid “perforations” and inconsistent leg size.
This 5-axis 3D laser cutting system from PRIMA North America achieves up to 30 percent productivity increase for automotive, appliance and aerospace part production.
This unmanned robotic cell from Fanuc Robotics and Methods Machine Tools provides a competitive opportunity to minimize the waste in set up and work flow that exists in the medical manufacturing of challenging materials, complex shapes and extremely tight tolerances.
Whether the application requires high precision and tight tolerances or cutting a wide variety of materials at high speeds, abrasive waterjet technology from Jet Edge has proven up to the task. Two diverse shops, Pegasus Northwest and China Steel, show how these capabilities can be strategically positioned to gain a competitive business advantage in demanding markets.
