The digital issue of May PM is now available.

The May digital issue of Production Machining is now available, with emphasis topics of Multitasking and Metalworking Fluids. For our cover story, we go into a shop that is using simultaneous 5-axis turn-mills for improved part quality and faster production on fire suppression and water delivery equipment components. Our second feature looks at suitable applications for getting the most from minimum quantity lubrication.

In our Tech Brief section we detail the proper way to accurately calculate surface footage and RPM for optimum tool life. We also take a look at CNC control software that is designed with features to better fit the tendencies of younger operators. In our Case in Point, we visit a shop that is using its CAM system to systematically transition a range of new and legacy parts to newer manufacturing systems.

Our May issue also features this year’s second installment of the Parts Cleaning section, which offers a refresher course on ultrasonic cleaning as well as a visit to an automotive supplier that is capitalizing on energy efficient cleaning.
