Check out PM's October Digital Edition.

The digital October issue of Production Machining is now available, with emphasis topics of Vertical Turning and Bar Feeders/Material Handling. Our cover story reviews part processing and CNC programming considerations for vertical multitasking applications. For our other feature, we go into a shop that uses effective strategies for matching various brands of equipment in a laboratory environment to deliver high precision parts for the aerospace, medical, optical, and micromachining industries.

In our Tech Brief section, we look at a new process-performance platform designed to span the entire part production landscape, from programming and setup to actual metal removal operations to automation to monitoring/data collection and transfer. We also review a line of grinding machines that feature an A axis, designed as a step toward complete machining in a single clamping, even in particularly challenging grinding applications.

Finally, we offer a case study of a precision medical shop that has taken advantage of its CAM software to create perfect tool paths for 5-axis machining.
