Courtesy: MazakThe VTC-805E (Vertical Traveling Column) Machining Center is designed with increased Y-axis stroke, a long bed/table size, high spindle speed and torque, and SmoothG CNC control for efficient, powerful machining. The VTC-805E provides an extended Y-axis travel of 32-in as an alternative to a bridge-style machine. With an optional center partition, it is possible to transform the VTC-805E's table into two separate work areas. The machine can be used to process parts on one side while operators load/unload parts on the other. A turret-style magazine accommodates 40 tools, and the spindle is designed to easily tackle a wide variety of materials including titanium, aluminum, steel and cast iron.  The SmoothG CNC makes it easy to generate programs for off-centerline machining as well as angled drilling, milling, and tapping operations. Additional features included a tilting CNC panel, multi-touch control screen, and a SD card for program data storage.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
