Manufacturing Engineering

The June issue of Manufacturing Engineering features a wide-range of topics—from metrology automation strategies and how to choose the best press to the rise of digital twins and using artificial intelligence to boost quality. Whether it’s a mechanical, hydraulic or servo press, there are several factors to consider in the buying decision, including cost, quality, and performance—and we cover them all. Meanwhile, our feature on A.I. shows how manufacturers are using the emerging technology to reduce scrap, crunch data and problem-solve in-process anomalies. In our “Mirroring the World,” article we take an in-depth look at digital twins and how the technology is spreading from top-tier industrial giants to benefit small- and medium-sized machine shops, moldmakers, and fabricators. Other noteworthy stories include an update on manufacturing drive trains for electric vehicles, and how cutting tool manufacturers are improving grooving and parting operations.
