Saving Energy at the Machine-Tool
It’s never been easier to monitor and conserve energy use on machining equipment.

Autodesk Fusion Production software lets manufacturers digitize their production by combining production planning, job tracking and machine monitoring into a single tool.

The Network and the Sensor
The smart-factory world of digital manufacturing is coming, and manufacturing-technology developers are eager to help you be ready.

New Machines from Mazak
Here are some new machines that you should know about from Mazak.

Need To Know: IMTS 2010
In its 28th year as the premier manufacturing technology show in North America, the 2010 International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) is being held Sept. 13 to 18 at McCormick Place in Chicago.

Variaxis 730-5X II Vertical Machining Center
The Variaxis 730-5X II from Mazak is designed for machining heavy-duty aluminum and steel parts with complex features.

Advances in Metalcutting
Grooving & SlittingGrooving and slitting ops are facilitated by a new family of tools launched by Sandvik Coromant (coromant.sandvik.com/us). There is the CoroMill 329 cutter, which deploys CoroCut two-edge inserts and a strong V-rail clamping interface.

Removing Metal
Although there is an increased use of non-metallic materials in cars and components, there are still plenty of steel, cast iron, alloys, aluminum, magnesium, and other metals being transformed into parts on the one hand and chips on the other. Here's an array of equipment that can help make metal removal fast, accurate andefficient.

Culture & the Improvement of the Design Process
It isn’t just about the tools of the trade that are found in various places on the pages of this magazine. It is also about how those tools are deployed. In the area of rapid prototyping—the world of product simulation—an MIT researcher has some interesting thoughts about the implications of models for successful companies.

Functional Crankshaft Prototypes in Hours: Mazak Makes It Possible
This new development from Mazak allows powertrain engineers to produce steel crankshafts in about eight hours. Think of the implications for product development...and even for racing.

Changes Abound in Machining Center Capability
Machine tool builders are coming up with some pretty innovative ways to capitalize on advances with both mechanical and electronic componentry. Here are some examples of both—including how they're mating the two together.
