Normalcy is Rearing its Head and I Like it.
I think, I hope, I pray we have turned the corner. On St. Patrick’s Day I actually went to a friends sports bar in Seal Beach, CA. and sat inside while listening to a band and enjoying a cold one and a corned beef sandwich. It felt sooooo good to be back to semi-normal. I was also happy for my friend as restaurants have been hit as hard as anyone this past year. The faster we get back to normal the better it will be for everyone. And yes I understand it has to be done in a smart and safe way.
This issue contains articles about people that have survived the pandemic and are ready to get back at it full force. Our cover story is about Wolfram Manufacturing in Texas that not only relies on products from Caron Engi- neering for their shop, they also sell it. I guess you could say they walk the talk. The concept at Wolfram Manufacturing is one piece flow. They load raw material and take out a finished part. Read all about them beginning on page 22.
Another article deals with two companies that have been working together for 21 years. That is a long time in this industry. VMP Inserts for Industry has been using Henning Software for that long. While it is not a CAD/ CAM software the Valencia, CA shop relies on it for AR, AP as well as the estimating, inventory control and shop management features. They do not cut payroll checks from Visual Books, but you can.
A correctional high school in Oregon is giving youth a chance to be part of the solution not the problem. Most kids are only there for a short time so the thought is not to make them machinist but to teach them life skills and how to think. They have a shop class that teaches Mastercam from CNC Software and the hope is these kids will be able to use these skills and be able to go to a community college or get a job.
DKW Precision is a northern California mostly family business shop that relies on a big YCM and three Doosan machines they call the triplets to get the job done. They are soon going to take the leap into 5 axis machining and has found their niche with tight tolerance, high complexity parts machined from exotic materials.
As usual there is much more including a FREE offer from DMark and Motorex to give you a free drum of Swisscut NF-X for a new Swiss lathe. If you recently purchased a Swiss lathe check out that offer in the magazine. We have a couple of spot on tooling articles and the magazine is chalk full of press releases of various new products and goings on in the industry.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading CNC WEST and look forward to all of us getting back to normal
