PM October 2017 Cover


The Digital Edition of October PM is now available.

Production Machining’s October Digital Edition is now available. This issue features emphasis topics of Vertical Turning and Bar Feeders/Material handling. Our cover story examines a line of vertical turning machines and looks at how the use of inverted or pick and place vertical turning centers has accelerated as these machines’ “built-in” automation capabilities are applied. Our other feature runs through the many considerations for lights-out production, including suitable parts, programming, and accessories.

Our Tech Brief this month provides special coverage of Inspection and Measurement, covering appropriate applications for touch probe measurement. In our Case in Point, we visit a shop that implemented a user-friendly centerless grinder that provides flexibility to accommodate requirements for a variety of parts.

This month’s Last Word contributor explains how so-called disruptive technology is finding its way into manufacturing, providing new ways to help solve old problems.
