Waterjet systems are offering machine shops more productivity options with the latest high-speed cutting and improved software capabilities
Need a little good news? America’s seemingly insatiable need for electricity is producing strong demand for the components that go into power generation equipment.
Stainless steel is far from an unknown quantity in machine shops. Yet, particularly in automotive and aerospace applications, tools and cutting methods continually evolve to optimize output—particularly as parts get more complex.
Not far from Florida’s metropolitan areas lie rural communities with the space and workforce to support manufacturing leaders. From Walton County in the Panhandle to the Heartland Counties near Lake Okeechobee, the state’s rural regions present a unique mix of resources for the manufacturing industry.
The value of machine tool orders plunged in November as makers pared prices to cut inventory, according to a monthly report.
Fiber laser welding continues to grow as it improves in weld quality, reliability and performance. Many fiber laser welding applications are autogenous, where the weld is formed entirely by melting parts of the base metal and no additional filler wire or powder is used
Advanced cutting tools can maximize metal removal rates (MRR) when machining even the most difficult-to-machine materials. Powered by the latest CAM programs, these machining strategies are known variously as high-speed, high-efficiency, optimized roughing and also by proprietary brand names like Mastercam’s Dynamic Milling.
OMAX Corp. has announced a virtual trade show showcasing the ProtoMAX abrasive waterjet. Using the ProtoMAX as a teaching tool, OMAX will present a program of design, machinery, and innovation as it pertains to the advancements of abrasive waterjet technology.
Laser 3D printing and marking systems are among the heavy-duty cutting and welding systems that had been scheduled for the IMTS Fabricating and Laser Pavilion—testament to the growing impact of what once might have been viewed as ancillary processes.
