Join ESPRIT and relish in the essence of Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM). Understand the importance of CAM and learn from the experts how virtual simulation and high speed machining cycles are driving perpetual innovation in our industry.
One operation seen on many turned parts today is broaching. Traditionally broaching has been regarded as a secondary operation that was typically performed on a broaching machine with special broaching tools. Depending on the industry, much of this type of broaching is still being done in this manner. For instance, in the automotive sector, almost all broaching is done by large expensive automatic broaching machines with specially designed broaching tools that can produce the broaching at very high speed and short cycles. Broaching on a CNC Lathe will be presented by Eurotech’s own Larry Greenawalt.
Machinability and Manufacturing of Stainless Steel
Join Randy Kline and Ray Schnell, of Valbruna, as they introduce you to the manufacturing and machinability aspects of stainless steels. Randy will provide a technical overview on how stainless steels are melted, hot rolled, and cold finished to produce stainless steel bar products. Ray will provide you with an overview on the machinability of the four (4) basic families of stainless steels, i.e. Austenitic, Ferritic, Martensitic and Precipitation Hardening, with an introduction to the basic metallurgy involved with the production of stainless steels. In addition, he will review the various elements, and the processes, affecting machinability and provide some typical applications for each family.
Why Should We Consider Manufacturing Analytics/IIoT
Help machine shops understand IIoT / Manufacturing Analytics and the potential solutions enough to make a determination of whether they should seriously consider IIoT or not. Manufacturing is moving towards needing to be more data driven to compete. However, companies struggle to understand if IIoT solutions make sense for them, can be successful, are affordable, and want to look for alternatives if available. They have also already been bombarded by IoT marketing fluff and a lot of stories of failed IoT projects. Our approach is to be transparent about the solutions, their value, and the options. We don’t get into the big, high‐minded ideas of Industry 4.0/Smart Manufacturing or the IoT hype. That’s been overdone already. Let’s get real.
Presentation will be open and transparent about these kinds of solutions.
* What is Manufacturing Analytics / IIoT / Remote
* Should we ignore Industry 4.0 and IIoT?
* How will it help our machine shop?
* How do I use it?
* Alternative solutions
* Is it valuable?
* Is it expensive?
