American, German, Swedish manufacturers gladly adopt factory-within-factory concept

Manufacturers of all sizes see an uptick in productivity after adding a factory within a factory via an automated machining cell.

These can include horizontal and vertical lathes, machining centers and grinders. The cell may also include a conveyor component.
