Production Machining’s July Digital Edition is now available. This issue features emphasis topics of Rotary Transfer and Quality. This month’s cover story provides a look into a 155-year-old lock manufacturing company and its use of rotary transfer in a manufacturing cell. The cell performs 5-sided machining on 25 different lock body sizes, machining them complete and running them through a washer with virtually no human intervention. Our other feature examines the work of a metrology company whose high precision 3D mapping is supporting the installation of a new beam transport line for scientific research.

Turn to our Tech Brief section to learn more about cold forming, which has the potential to deliver precision engineered parts with as much as 80 percent less scrap than machining processes. Our Case in Point goes into a shop that was able to make adjustments to its tooling in order to eliminate the need for a second machining center.

Our July issue also features this year’s second Parts Cleaning section. The first feature in this section visits a high production stamping facility that is using an automated aqueous parts washer to help meet its strict cleaning requirements. We also take a closer look at ways to keep solvent cleaning safe, efficient, effective and environmentally compliant.
