The June 2017 edition of Manufacturing Engineering is now available as a digital magazine. Links to individual articles are available below.
VMCs are meeting precision manufacturing requirements through a combination of advanced technologies that is delivering high performance in the most challenging applications.
Centerless grinding was once a hazardous business, with operators risking life and limb grabbing parts from the machine. Today, they can safely push a button and watch millions of parts fly by.
To visualize and validate manufacturing processes, manufacturing engineers have lots of new options available in the latest simulation software tools
Measuring profiles and surfaces is as important as ever. Surface primary form, surface waviness and surface roughness are critical for precision parts and assemblies. What are some of the advances in the field and what do users need to know to make best use of them?
Heller Machine Tools Inc. (Nuertingen, Germany; Troy, MI) doubled metal removal rates for roughing operations in Ti-6Al-4V with Haimer’s Power Shrink and Heavy-Duty Shrink Chucks with Safe-Lock system.
After a century and a quarter of reinventing itself to fulfill market and customer needs, C.G. Bretting Mfg. Co. Inc. (Ashland, WI) is growing through use of multiaxis machine tools and creative machining and programming strategies.
Lab technician Ricky Sapp once faced each workday with the task of manually inspecting metal welding powders and the sieves used to sort them. That was before his employer, invested in a Keyence VHX-5000 digital microscope.
