Manufacturing customers are expecting more than quality products and adherence to deadlines. Customer service is becoming a critical feature that is expected of manufacturing suppliers. The following are areas that can help improve your customer service and satisfaction.

Often a hole in a part needs to be larger. After drilling creates the initial hole in a part the process of boring enlarges a previously drilled or cast hole with a single point cutting tool or boring head. Various tools are used in boring:

As always, the industrial world continues to evolve. The following are several predictions that could change the future of manufacturing.

Technology is expanding into every part of our lives, and it is the same in the lives of manufacturers. In fact, advancements in automation and artificial intelligence (AI) are transforming the reliability of manufacturing processes. Gartner research reveals some of the top technological trends of 2022:

The last two years have been challenging for manufacturers is certainly an understatement. Unfortunately, 2022 is predicted to be a continuation of those problems. This article looks at two of the most critical: shortages in workers and the supply chain slowdown.

Today, every OEM is facing supply chain and labor shortages when trying to maintain production schedules. Having separate manufacturers supply various services along the process chain with ancillary support services can help ease the burdens the lack of workers and material can cause. Additionally, multi-service suppliers help reduce time and cost because of the efficiency of working with one supplier versus multiple.

When you are an OEM, selecting the best supplier for your parts is essential to the overall quality of your product and your profitability. After all, part production in the supply chain is a significant factor in your manufacturing process’ overall cost. For that reason, working with a reliable, responsive, and cost-efficient supplier is one of the most critical decisions an OEM can make.

Since Henry Ford and the assembly line, manufacturers have embraced change that make their operations more effective. Over the years advancements like CAD drawings to robotics have driven processes to be more efficient. The following are factors that are transforming the world of industry.

To understand boring or reaming, you need to understand that they each have a different approach to hole-making. While both are cutting processes, boring uses a single point cutting tool or boring head to enlarge an existing hole in a workpiece. On the other hand, reaming uses a rotary cutting tool to smooth interior walls in an existing hole in a workpiece. When you compare the two, boring does present significant advantages.

No matter the manufacturer, all must deal with warehousing parts, material, components, and product. Warehouse management is the oversight of your operations in the warehouse. This involves shipping, receiving, tracking, and storing of inventory. It also oversees training your employees, planning daily workloads, managing how and when items are shipped, and overseeing the movement of all goods in the warehouse. A warehouse management system (WMS) is software designed to optimize all operational processes. When you implement a WMS, you have full access and visibility to inventory levels, staff productivity, order fulfillment workflows, storage, and future forecasting – all in real-time. Systems such as warehousing management are vital, as they eliminate manual processes and take guesswork out of your operations. With streamlined processes, you receive a vitally accurate snapshot of what your business did yesterday, how it's doing today, and what it will perform like tomorrow. Here are five essential factors in managing your warehouse.
