Showing up is a significant percentage of properly reporting technology. Since her addition to PM, Barbara Schulz has visited several shops, shows, press conferences and OEMs that are germane to our readers because there is a lot of technology being developed in Europe. Having her based in Europe has allowed us to “show up” and cover happenings that we historically could only report on as a third party.

Last year, Production Machining added a new name to our masthead, Barbara Schulz. She is our European Correspondent, which makes sense because she lives in Cologne, Germany.

In addition to being from Europe, she has spent time as an editor for a metalworking publication that based her in Australia for several years. As German met English (OK, Australian English), the result is a bilingual lady with metalworking knowledge and very good writing skills.

Since her addition to PM, she has visited several shops, shows, press conferences and OEMs that are germane to our readers because, truth be told, there is a lot of technology being developed in Europe. Having her based in Europe has allowed us to “show up” and cover happenings that we historically could only report on as a third party.

She contributes to all the media channels that we use to get the word out to our readers and by being there, the reports have a freshness and viewpoint that only a first-person account can bring to the story. “Write what you know” is the mantra for anyone making a living from writing, and with her mechanical engineering degree, Barbara knows what she is seeing and reporting on.

As we roll into 2018, look for more stories, blog posts and tweets from Barbara as Europe, like the states, is experiencing “good times,” and there is much happening there that you should know about. Read a couple samples from Barbara’s travels – “Using Grinding Versus EDM to Finish Form Tools” and “ID and OD Shoe Grinding for Thin Walled Workpieces” –and look for more as time goes by.
