Don't do this on your CNC machine

Our technology spotlights typically highlight innovative and leading edge technologies that may be useful in your shop. For a change, here's a video about what not to do on your CNC machine.

Thick plate welding

The MIG/MAG Narrow gap technology from Cloos Robotic Welding for welding thick-walled component parts. In comparison to conventional weld seam preparation, the weld seam volume can be reduced by about 60 per cent, according to the company, reducing welding time and providing a saving potential with regard to the filler material, shielding gas and power consumption.

Building on the proven design of the existing NC4 system, Renishaw has introduced an enhanced solution to satisfy the demands of the rapidly evolving manufacturing environment.

Finding opportunity (when it's not knocking at your door)

Manufacturers recognize the value of setting themselves apart in a competitive marketplace.

Get that new machine up and running

DMG MORI has launched a “blended learning” experience to help machine operators learn to use a new DMG Mori machine in only a few days.

Robotic bending operation

Amada's EG 6013 AR bending cell (a servo-electric press brake) uses the world's first dual servo-electric drive, allowing for high speed and high precision. Combined with a bending robot, the EG AR bends small parts, eliminating the need for human operation and reducing the risk of danger when dealing with small, difficult-to-handle parts.
