Production Machining’s May Digital Edition is now available.

Production Machining’s May Digital Edition is now available. This issue features emphasis topics of Machining Centers and CAD/CAM. This month’s cover story provides a look at how one shop is integrating customized ERP-based techniques to help better manage the business through employee empowerment, accountability and clear, two-way communication channels. Our other feature examines one CAM software supplier’s approach to (and reasons for) simplifying the programming process.

Turn to our Tech Brief section to learn the significance of wear abatement strategies when selecting metal scrap handling equipment. We also delve into the use of wet blasting to produce a quality pre-coat surface on cutting tools, helping to boost tool performance. Our Case in Point goes into a shop that is using indexable coated carbide inserts for longer tool life in difficult to machine materials.

Our May issue also features an Eastec preview section with photos and descriptions of many of the products that are on display at the show.
