Learn About Lean Machining Here

Production Machining launches a new online zone dedicated to Lean Manufacturing in the machine shop.

Production Machining’s new Lean Manufacturing Zone includes both articles and video profiles about machining facilities that are succeeding at lean.

Editor-in-chief Chris Koepfer magazine interviews precision turned parts supplier Vanamatic about the various ways this company makes lean work within a screw-machine environment. See the video.

In other video, Modern Machine Shop editor-in-chief Mark Albert interviews personnel with Richards Industries in Cincinnati, Ohio about three very different lean cells in this facility.

Other resources in this zone include articles on lean-manufacturing concepts such as 5S, setup reduction, value-stream mapping, cells and chaku-chaku—as well as a variety of articles specifically focused on lean in the job shop.
