The digital February issue of Production Machining is now available, with emphasis topics of Inspection & Measurement and Medical Machining. For our cover story, we examine the challenges shops face with 3D scanning—determining the most efficient method to perform inspection on the variety of parts that are produced. Our second feature looks at recent advances in laser technology that have brought improved capabilities for precision machining in the medical device industry.

The first Tech Brief details an application that seamlessly interfaces cloud-enabled digital tooling data and intelligence with production, inventory, and e-commerce to optimize shop productivity. Next we explain how industrial identification in tool handling not only saves time and costs during recording, transmission and management of tool data, but also increases manufacturing quality and machine tool productivity.

This month’s Case in Point goes into a shop that implemented a premium, heavy duty, semi-synthetic coolant, engineered to optimize tool life and surface finish in high pressure applications, to solve a foaming issue.
