June 2018 Production Machining Cover

 

Production Machining’s June Digital Edition is now available. This issue features emphasis topics of Bar Feeders and Systems Integration with special coverage of the Automotive Industry. The cover story is an overview of how to select the best bar feeder for the application to maximize the production benefits of this technology. For our other feature, we look at a multi-generational family business that tapped into its internal shop talent to install cooperative robots on selected equipment, doing most of the integration themselves.

The issue’s Automotive coverage is a case study of Ford Motor Company’s use of cleanliness analysis systems to find microscopic particles in transmission components.

Our Tech Brief discusses the rotational turning process. Designed for high volume production, the process is a version of hard turning that can eliminate the need for grinding and eliminate scroll marks on the workpiece.

Finally, the Last Word column reviews some of the dramatic changes in the machine tool business in the last 30 years and looks to the future of metalworking manufacturing.
