PM's December 2015 Digital Edition is available.

The digital December issue of Production Machining is now available, with emphasis topics of Shop Management Software and CNC Swiss-Type. For our cover story, we examine the shop management strategies of a Cincinnati-based shop and the software it has implemented to ensure that machining is being done on the right jobs, in the right way and at the right time. Our second feature looks at a Swiss shop that has found ways to improve production and strengthen the work environment through employee empowerment.

In our Tech Brief section we detail a bar puller from Accudyne Corporation that is designed to address specific concerns such as setup speed and accuracy, reliability and repeatability. In our Case in Point, we visit a shop that is now using a 3D printer to design and produce customized tool covers, reducing injuries and improving the overall safety of its employees.

Our December issue also features our fourth Parts Cleaning section for the year. This section includes a feature article that discusses ways to align a shop’s parts cleaning operations with its metalworking program. We also present a technical piece discussing the process and equipment relationship in cleaning operations.
