In manufacturing, the accuracy of every cut depends on using the correct tool and entering the proper data for it. Human intervention adds uncertainty to machining processes with every manual entry of setup information. That uncertainty disappears, however, when software enables digital twins to enter the picture through direct CAM system integration, enabling shops to program parts offline with access to all the details of real-time machine setups and optimization.
Spinal surgery is a complicated procedure requiring an extensive and costly support network. Anatomics’ SpineBox method of pre-planning surgery and additive manufacturing of customized medical devices has the potential to realize significant time and cost benefits for the healthcare system. The streamlined procedure and solution not only improve the patient outcomes, they also reduce the risk of infection, as well as the strain on central sterile services departments (CSSD).

Some manufacturers prefer to simplify the machine tool acquisition process by prioritising value – but this often comes at the cost of performance. For the highest return on investment, it is important to find a balance between performance and value. While this seems more daunting than comparing sticker prices, minimising lifetime costs makes it significantly easier to keep up with technological advances and to grow business.

The Mazak HCN-5000 horizontal machining center offers customers outstanding value with high performance and high productivity for achieving maximum performance when working with virtually any type of material. Mazak’s Multi Pallet Pool offers high-speed pallet transfer and extended unmanned lights out running.
The reduction of long lead times cannot be achieved by simply reducing machining cycle times. Shaving seconds off a part’s in-cut time is nothing compared to eliminating entire steps in the process, especially time-consuming tasks that require manual intervention.
