Automotive OEMs challenged by market demands for innovation at a low cost
Fun to watch - but you won't catch us trying out any of these ridiculously overpowered rides
The Problem: Turret punch press' inability to produce new line of parts
The Solution: Servo-electric turret punch press with lights out capability
Quebec office product manufacturer's investment in servo electric technology boosts productivity
The TRUMPF TruLaser Cell Series 7000 is a high-end laser processing centre featuring minimal processing costs and maximum flexibility. Available with either a CO2 or solid state laser, the cell may used for cutting, welding and deposition welding. Featuring a 2 in 1 fiber solution that delivers the beam for cutting in the fiber core, and the beam for welding in the outer core, the transition from cutting to welding is minimal. In this video, the TruLaser Cell 7040 is shown cutting parts that have been hot stamped, one of many ideal applications for the fast, flexible and productive TruLaser Cell Series 7000.
TRUMPF's TruLaser Cell 5030 is the ideal entry machine for laser welding large 3D components. Watch how the BrightLine weld option gives low-spatter laser welding and the highest weld seam quality.

Turning-milling centers with coordinated drive and CNC engineering achieve superior accuracy and repeatability
The complete machining of turbine blades requires striking a balance between powerful roughing and ultra-precise finishing, a task for which the modern five-axis turning-milling centers are ideal, when robust machine construction is combined with high-quality drive and control engineering.
5G means different things to different industries, but it all revolves around enabling widespread device connectivity.
Okuma LT2000 EX horizontal turning centre demonstrating three-turret capability. Three turrets result in reduced cycle times because they involve more tools in the cut.
The Prima Power Platino laser has changed AVT Beckett's engineering approach. "The way we design...the way we build product now has given us much more capability than what we had prior with just the turret punch press."

The Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontaro) announces $6.6 million funding for Guelph manufacturers
Guelph, ON, manufacturers Hammond Manufacturing Co. and Ontario Drive and Gear Ltd. will be receiving combined funding of $6.6 million following an annoucement by the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario. The projects are expected to create or maintain up to 165 full time equivalent jobs.
5ME and Okuma have joined forces to demonstrate the advantages of cryogenic machining. The partnership will establish two cryo demonstration facilities, one at 5ME's Technical Center in Warren, MI, and the other at Okuma's Aerospace Center of Excellence in Charlotte, NC.
With so many manufacturing companies looking to run at higher RPMs, balancing your tool assemblies has become much more critical to success.
