Cutting Superalloy Challenges Down to Size

How people feel about heat-resistant superalloys depends on what they do with them. Those who use parts made of HRSAs are high on the materials because they retain their strength and hardness at high temperatures and also provide excellent corrosion resistance.

IMA Group gets with the edge learning program

AI’s learning ability is moving to the compute edge. And manufacturers will be a major beneficiary. I realized the usefulness of being able to run AI on small computer processing power while working with NASA in 2010.

Fuji Introduces Multitasking Machine

Fuji Machine has introduced its GYROFLEX Ultimate Multitasking Machine. According to Fuji, the GYROFLEX offers the flexibility to meet a variety of production demands, from low production volume and parts prototyping to high-volume and high-mixed production.

Making HMCs Nimble Enough for Small Jobs

Horizontal machine tools (HMCs) have typically been used for longer run production jobs. But as lot sizes decrease, machine builders and their partners have introduced new technologies that speed setups and generally make HMCs nimbler. So much so that one should probably rethink the role HMCs serve.

VMCs: How Many Axes Do You Really Need?

The three-axis vertical machining center (VMC) has long been the go-to machine tool for many small to medium-sized shops. Their use is well-understood. Compared to more complex machinery, it’s easier to find operators for three-axis machines.

Fast Times for Machine Spindles

Driven spindles are the technical core of a machine tool, supplying the power to turn the cutting tools that shape our products and our world. Attaching one to a five-axis movement creates an advanced CNC machine.
