Production Machining’s February Digital Edition is now available. This issue features emphasis topics of EDM and Parts Cleaning, with special coverage of Medical. For the cover story we visit a shop specializing in small hole making, learning how they select from drilling and EDM for the production of micro-holes, 0.001 inch in diameter or smaller. For our Cleaning coverage, we interview PMTS parts cleaning exhibitors for a preview of what products they will be displaying at the show and what trends they are seeing in the industry.

In our Special Coverage section, we follow a medical device manufacturer that needed to reduce the cost and lead time for a vital surgical device, turning to coolant-free Swiss machining to automate and streamline its processes.

Our Tech Brief this month looks at a fluid reclamation system that features a live bottom unit and a chip blower, reducing chip contact with expensive components while increasing dryness and recovering even more cutting fluid. This month’s Case in Point is about a company that implemented a new inspection system to increase throughput by 75 percent to better meet a customer’s tight lead time demands.

Finally, the Last Word column provides a look at the changes happening in medical device manufacturing and what suppliers in this industry must do to remain competitive.
