Magazine Description

In this issue

International Metalworking News for Asia’s (IMNA) lead feature in December is a “New depth in drilling deep through-holes.” The Mechanised Edge Profiling (MEP), is an engineered tool, guided by a machine tool’s CAM program, to remove burrs quickly and consistently. This method combines innovative tool design with 5-axis toolpaths to enable fast, repeatable deburring of holes deeper than 10 times diameter. Big news in our enterprise close-up column this month is an interview story of Philip Norman of Ross Robotics. He has worked as an author, architect and artist before designing a new construction toy that used a much simpler array of parts than existing kits. Philip has presented what can only be described as an “eyes wide open” approach to engineering using nature, art, mathematics and science as inspiration for the design of his modular robots. Other articles explore the fast-evolving arena of laser cutting, and optical metrology products which are now replacing traditional CMMs. Laser cutting is ideal for working on small tubes that must be cut to high dimensional accuracy because the laser light makes no contact with the material. Adding laser cutting to a laser welding and marking/ engraving capabilities, offers designers a one-stop shop for system integration. On the other hand, optical scanners are faster and cheaper in comparison to the traditional CMMs. As a result, optical scanner products are more widely implemented for smart factories. This December issue also looks at areas of growing interest. For example, the Vietnam market. The country is rising as a major player in the regional manufacturing industry. And growth is not reserved for just one industry, there are three major industries that will likely boom, and general parts manufacturing is one. Hurco EVP discussed the region’s growth including expanding operations there on a one-on-one interview.
