Running your shop like a well-oiled machine.
A critical function with critical side effects.
The nature of machining requires a considerable input of energy and materials. In fact, it’s one of the most power-intense operations in the manufacturing sector. The result is an output of atmospheric emissions (greenhouse gasses and metal fragments), solid waste, and liquid waste. With increased pressure on sustainability, factories must address this pressing concern.
Industry Knowledge Center.
Earlier this year, American Machinist postulated five CNC machining trends to watch. While the article references a 2022 forecast, seemingly these trends are certain to have an impact farther into this industry’s future.
International Journal of Sustainable Engineering, Vol. 15, 2022 – Issue 1 Fernando, Gamage, Karunathilake Read more how machining is making a significant contribution to the environmental footprint.
Meeting the challenge.
The majority of machine challenges are process related. How can you optimize your process to work more efficiently, effectively, and sustainably? Every decision regarding tool types, paths, work-holding, cutting parameters, deburring, gauging, and more can affect your overall production. Wasmer can help you sort through the process and operate at a higher level.
