Beginning in the 70s, flexible manufacturing systems were introduced to help manufacturers become more efficiently. These are designed for systems to react and adapt to changes, or problems in the production process.

Despite the turmoil of 2020 still lingering into the new year, there are trends to watch for in 2021. The following are a few of the topics manufacturers will be talking about.

Boring is the process of enlarging holes that have already been drilled to make them concentric, properly sized, and finished. It can become more complex when it involves intricate machined parts and materials. The following are boring processes used for more complicated projects.

Line boring, also known as is an engine machining process that enlarges a hole that has already been cast, making the centerlines of two or more bores collinear to create perfectly straight and aligned bores. A line boring machine performs this task using one or more cutting tools held within a boring head. Line boring machines are also used for tapering holes and machining the outside face of the workpiece using a facing head. 

While many OEMs still want to keep the entire manufacturing process in-house, increased competition and challenges lead more manufacturers to outsource parts to a supplier as a cost-effective solution. The following are other advantages of outsourcing your OEM parts.

Boring is the process of enlarging a previously-drilled or cast hole using a single-point cutting tool or boring head. Drilling is done to create an initial hole in the part and boring to make the existing hole larger.

Boring is the machining process of enlarging a pre-drilled or pre-cast hole with a single-point cutting tool or boring head. A boring machine produces smooth and accurate holes in a part with a bore, using a single cutting tip of steel, cemented carbide, or diamond. The most common boring tools are braces, bits, and gimlets. A joiner can use different chisels for boring work as well. Hand boring tools are powered by hand pressure while an electric power dill obtains power from electricity and battery. It is essential to keep your cutting parts sharp for accurate results. The different types of boring methods are:

Despite the highest unemployment numbers since the Great Depression, finding workers is still a significant problem for manufacturers. The majority of manufacturers are looking to attract and hire qualified employees. In the past, these positions were low-skilled and low-paying but that is not always the case today. The industrial workplace has embraced technology, processes and equipment that require the right people to fill the position. The following are tips for hiring manufacturing workers to meet your needs.

Quality is always the goal for any manufacturer. The following are practices to help increase quality and reduce recalls.

With the continued risk for disruption from the COVID-19 pandemic, looking at the top trends for the industrial market in 2020 can help prepare manufacturers. The following are three of the top trends.
