Florida's advanced manufacturing industries are diverse and include sectors producing intermediate and finished products ranging from plastics and micro-electronics to tortillas and motor vehicles.
Supply chains are creating cybersecurity risks for companies, according to a security services firm report.
Most manufacturing executives participating in a survey said cybersecurity threats are beginning to overwhelm their resources.
Norton | Saint-Gobain Abrasives has introduced the Farécla line of polishing compounds and surface finishing products for markets such as OEM automotive assembly, marine, woodworkers, composite manufacturers and other industrial applications.
Current and prospective member companies of the defense industrial base (DIB) have watched with interest as the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) developed its all-encompassing Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) program.
Until the middle of 2010, first-tier subcontract machinist, JJ Churchill, could produce turbine blades only if they had their fir-tree root-forms preground elsewhere, or if they were subsequently added by another subcontractor. No longer is this the case.
Burrs, sharp edges, and rough surfaces plague even the most precise metal-cutting or forming process. Deburring and finishing can often be treated as the step-child of a manufacturing process, but its importance is growing as tolerances get tighter and precision devices become the norm.
It’s a sad fact of practically all metal removal operations that, no matter how sharp the tool or free-machining the material, there are going to be burrs, hanging chads, ragged corners, and other edge quality issues that must be dealt with before calling the workpiece complete.
The demand for high-quality gear teeth in areas such as electric mobility comes with great challenges. or example, in many applications generating grinding with corundum is a good solution, but this abrasive also has disadvantages in some applications. Grinding special geometrical modifications could, for example, have a negative effect.
