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.
With all the benefits afforded by flap discs, it is important to know how to select the right one by understanding all the variables and how they apply to your metal fabricating application. Here are the five variables that will help you pick the correct one.
The welding OEM demonstrates its commitment to renewable energy by constructing a $5.9 million 2.5 MW wind tower at its world headquarters in Cleveland, OH, that will generate up to 10 percent of the energy used for its main plant and save up to $500,000 a year in energy costs.
The next generation of innovation and advances in industrial robot technology promise to increase your productivity in arc welding and other multipurpose applications.
Denis Zayia of Renishaw explains how five-axis CMM inspection brirevongs the same efficiency to part measurement as five-axis contouring has brought to metal cutting by dramatically improving throughput, opening up lean efficiencies, and documenting parts to ever-tighter tolerances. Retrofits of such systems allow manufacturers to realize greater value and productivity from their CMM investment.
The AbrasiMatic 300 from Buehler uses a 12 in abrasive cut-off wheel that can section up to a 4.375 in diameter sample and has a new X-Bed and X-axis movement digital display that increases precision and convenience in serial cutting applications.
New Sunrise Warranty at Trilogy Machinery
Sunrise Ironworkers’ U.S. distributor now warranties ironworkers and punching machine parts to three years and one year on labor.
Backlog of Orders Index Grows To All-Time High
The manufacturing economy continued its recovery in March, according to Institute for Supply Management’s March 2021 ‘Manufacturing ISM Report On Business.’ Backlogs are growing, as are raw materials inventories and exports and imports.
Recovery Takes Hold: February U.S. Manufacturing Technology Orders Increase Almost 18% Over January
Totaling $377.6 million, February’s latest orders represent a 32.2% increase year over year, according to AMT’s report. Oil and gas surprised with an uptick, and medical equipment’s rise likely resulted from hospitals catching up on elective procedures.
