Bringing Automated Feedback to Machine Tools

February 26, 2021
Today’s machine tools create an enormous amount of data. One way of using this information is to implement automated feedback processes that improve machining operations. In this episode, Alan Rooks, Editor in Chief of Manufacturing Engineering magazine, talks with Scott Mahrle, director of business development for Q-DAS and Hexagon Integrated Solutions, and Frank Krazer, system engineer for Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence, about what automated machine tool feedback is and how it impacts the manufacturing process; how automated machine tool feedback can increase the efficiency of both people and equipment; how it can produce costs savings; and how manufacturers can build workers’ confidence in this process.

Manufacturing Engineering

Our March issue takes a close look at how automation is changing manufacturing faster than ever before. Three features take aim at this topic. In “Automation in the Age of COVID-19,” we examine how easy to use, large scale automation projects are accelerating in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. And job shops are not being left out. In “Automation for Everyone,” readers will learn how using robots and other types of automation, long thought of as the solution only for big factories, are finding their way into small to medium-sized shops due to reduced prices and easy to program automation. Finally, in “Connecting CNC to The World,” we learn how the Internet and the cloud are changing how machine tools are programmed, automated, and controlled.
