PM's September Digital Edition is now available.

The September digital issue of Production Machining is now available, with emphasis topics of Multispindle and Micromachining. For our cover story, we go into a UK company that was overstocked with inventory, helping it make its customer’s lead times on small batch orders. A custom multispindle screw machine reduced setup times so that high-volume production was not compromised by interruptions for critical small-batch orders. Our second feature takes a look at a company that has applied centerless and sliding headstock technology to its line of micro-grinding machines to produce complex guidewire for use in medical applications.

In our Tech Brief section we detail an automated parts accumulator designed to provide hours of untended operation with bar-fed CNC lathes. We also examine some straightforward goals for metrology. In our Case in Point, we visit a shop that is reducing coolant costs with a recycling system.

The Parts Cleaning section includes a feature article about an environmentally friendly cleaning solution that is contributing to a safer, more sustainable and more profitable workplace. We also visit a shop whose implementation of an ultrasonic cleaning system has helped to provide greater efficiency and improved employee morale.
