Production Machining’s November Digital Edition is now available. This issue features emphasis topics of CNC Single Spindle and Parts Cleaning, with special coverage of Additive Manufacturing. The cover story profiles a successful shop that was developed through the efforts of its owner to learn all aspects of the business by doing. She has applied the correct technology where it is needed and managed to move a classic screw machine shop forward with CNC single spindle turning centers. For our other feature, we provide an overview of additive manufacturing and its uses and explain how it can complement turning.
In the Parts Cleaning feature, we visit a shop that implemented a parts cleaning machine that has gone beyond expectations, in part due to the support of the supplier. The Tech Brief in this section reviews the three types of solvent vapor degreasing systems.
Our other Tech Brief delves into how multi-tasking is being applied across the metalworking spectrum. This article looks at a process development that combines skiving and roller burnishing into a single operation. It delivers equivalent tolerance results in a fraction of the cycle time.
This month’s Case in Point goes into a shop that is reinventing and improving its machining processes to produce extremely small, complex, tightly toleranced, thin-walled precision components made of difficult-to-machine materials.
While not glamorous, cleaning is a necessity for quality parts production. This supplier provides a solution to many of the issues shops face for fast, effective and environmentally friendly parts cleaning.
The development of environmentally safe, yet effective solvents has kept vapor degreasing at the forefront of cleaning operations for metalworking.
After trying an array of parts cleaning methods over the years, this shop has implemented an environmentally friendly, relatively simple system to clean every part it produces.
