Manufacturers have begun using sensors and actuators to monitor their cutting processes and adjust parameters to optimize tool life and workpiece quality. However, traditional monitoring systems have some drawbacks.
Since 1996, the Plant 15 machining operations at Mercury Marine have included a reliance on automated machining cells. Over the years, the Fond du Lac, Wis.-based manufacturer and distributor of marine engines, parts, accessories and integrated systems has phased out some traditional manufacturing methods in favor of modern cells.
Like just about every other manufacturing operation, welding has made the leap into the 21st century with automation, agile manufacturing processes, and offline programming.
Providing a full range of machines, automation, and software mirrors the important trends in the industry as well.
CGTech, the developer of VERICUT software, and Makino Milling Machine Co. Ltd., a leader in CNC machine tools technology, have renewed their strategic corporate partnership to better serve the mutual customer base of the two companies.
The 40/20 vertical machining center platform is rightly regarded as the workhorse of job shops. To help their customers deal with increased competitive pressures, machine tool builders are improving on this established 40 × 20" design, relying on advanced spindle technologies, fourth and fifth axis table-on-table configurations and high-speed, high-efficiency machining strategies.
In response to a neighboring company’s request for a collaboration, machine tool manufacturer Mazak Corp. provided some much-needed materials and production capacity for the development of a new UV-C LED surface disinfection system.
The push to modernize technology-intensive sectors in Asia—such as automotive, aerospace and general engineering—is constantly stretching machine tool builders in the region to their limits. The demand is not just for standard machines.
As laser manufacturing systems for sheet and tube grow more sophisticated—powerful, automated and scalable—navigating the wealth of choices might feel daunting.
