The November 2013 edition of Manufacturing Engineering is now available as a digital magazine.  Links to individual articles are available on www.MfgEngMedia.com.

 

Features

Scaling Down Waterjets to the Micro Level
Adapting abrasive waterjets for micromachining requires greatly reducing the size of the waterjet nozzles and mixing tubes that carry smaller garnet abrasives through the waterjet’s high-pressure cutting tool delivery system. 

Lasers Drill Precision Holes Quickly 
Short-pulse picosecond fiber lasers are making inroads, drilling small, precise holes for the medical and microelectronics industries.

Drilling Small, Deep Holes with Precision EDM 
Today, there is no end in sight for precision machining applications like small holemaking for which EDM drilling, in combination with other processes, is being used.

Grinding Toward Perfection  
To meet new challenges, a variety of machine builders are offering faster, more accurate multiaxis precision grinding machines. Many come with creative new enhancements.
