The auto industry’s recovery from a global semiconductor shortage may be long and require revamping supply chains, according to a report by the Deloitte consulting firm.
The evolution to high speed machining (HSM) is continuing and toolholders are playing a crucial role in that process, which includes the interlinking of machining center, programming, high-speed spindles, advanced cutting tools, balancing, and high-performance toolholders in order for shops to take full advantage of HSM.
Machine shops use a variety of techniques to track the condition of their cutting tools, ranging from simple to sophisticated. No matter what monitoring method is used, it can be crucial in preventing catastrophic tool failure. At its best, monitoring also significantly boosts tool life and slashes tooling costs.
Workholding needs to be super-sized when machining workpieces like truck transmission housings, wind turbine blades, rocket bodies, and more, for industries like aerospace and defense, agricultural, energy, marine, rail, and on- and off-road transportation.
Felsomat USA will host Innovation Day on June 10 at its U.S. headquarters in Schaumburg.
CERATIZIT Group will host a global online event, “It’s Tool Time,” on Thursday, June 17 featuring experts who will focus on the value of process optimization through a variety of interactive machining demonstrations and presentations.
The IM-8000 dimensional measurement system has a rotary unit, which allows for 360-degree measurement capability on both turned and machined parts.
The U.S. has not been competitive, so companies sourced offshore to meet consumer and industrial demand for low-priced goods. Fortunately, however, a positive localization trend since 2010 indicates an increasing rate of reshoring by U.S. companies and foreign direct investment by foreign companies.
AI already helps individual factories improve production, safety, efficiency and other metrics while lowering costs. Marrying AI and cloud technology can supercharge those benefits.
