Does your coolant life seem to get progressively shorter and shorter? Do you dump your sump and recharge it with fresh fluid expecting to get another 8-12 months of coolant life, only to have it go rancid yet again? Then you may have a Bio-Fil problem.

TAX PLANNING ... MORE THAN JUST PULLING THE RABBIT OUT OF THE HAT As the new-year begins, tax payers are sometimes inclined to go in search of a special magic trick to try and reduce their tax burden. While this approach may bear some fruit, it can be as underwhelming as watching your 10-year-old neighbor at the school talent show.

First Word PRESIDENT’S LETTER

Times...they are a-changing Well, the truth is, “times” have always been “a-changing” haven’t they? But it appears to me that this natural ebb and flow of change has taken on a more dramatic effect with potentially greater impact to our businesses than in the past. Some key subjects of note include the Affordable Health Care Act, which will surely have an economic impact on small businesses, is fully implemented by 2014 (not that far away). Cut backs in military spending, increasing competitive pressures on the international front, continued off-shoring of many of our manufacturing work, the “skills gap” and even a lack of a minimum flow of young people into our manufacturing career field. What to do?

IT APPEARS TO ME THAT NOW IS NOT THE TIME TO RETREAT INTO A SHELL AND HOPE FOR THE BEST. NOW IS NOT THE TIME TO IGNORE REALITIES OF IMPENDING POLITICAL AND MARKET ACTIONS. NOW IS NOT THE TIME TO FORGET WHY WE HAVE COME TOGETHER AND JOIN AN ASSOCIATION OF LIKE MINDED AND LIKE PURPOSED PEOPLE (ATMA) IN THE FIRST PLACE.

DANTE O. FIERROS President 602.980.1907 dante@nicholsprecision.com

Now IS the time to communicate with each other our needs and our challenges so that others might lend a hand, provide an answer, direction or support. Now IS the time to listen and learn how best to face the future by seeking out those pockets of clarity that we (ATMA) will endeavor to provide in the best way we can (speakers, information via emails, websites, newly launched ATMA Lunch Forums, etc.). Now IS the time to look to our industry partners for support and to provide many of the answers we seek (AZPMAP, Arizona Commerce Authority, SME, Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry, etc.). Now IS the time to continue our (ATMA) focus for next year to provide our members with the best service we can muster based on our small budgets and continued reliance on the efforts of our valued volunteers. Now IS the time to communicate with other members, associates and your board of directors to make your voices heard. Give us your thoughts and we will endeavor to provide the answers.

Good luck to us all!

Trend Watch NEWS FROM THE CUTTING EDGE

New Insert Geometries and Customized Tool Holders Optimize the Use of Coolant FROM THE PN EDITORS & SANDVIK COROMANT

Fair Lawn, N.J. – Sandvik Coromant has introduced a range of new insert geometries and customized tool holders, featuring fixed nozzles that guarantee a precise coolant jet flow to get right to the center of the cutting zone.

ABOVE: Sandvik Coromant advanced cooling technology has until now been a solution primarily for customers using quick-change holding systems such as the Coromant Capto® (disc interface) shown here. photo: Sandvik Coromant

Advanced Nozzle Technology /// The coolant flows from the pump to the tool through nozzles directed exactly at the cutting zone. This produces a wedge of coolant that efficiently removes the heat from the cutting zone and forms the chip. Improved chip control and longer tool life are just two of the benefits which contribute to secure, predictable machining and preventing unplanned machine stoppages. Increased productivity can even be achieved in tricky applications and in materials which are difficult to machine, regardless of the pressure you use. When using low pressure of 5–30 bars (72–435 psi) – the new Sandvik Coromant HP holders outperform regular tool holders which can have a tendency to flood coolant. At higher coolant pressures, above ~30 bars (435 psi), the new insert geometry collects the coolant jets to form an even, powerful wedge that breaks the chips, cools the insert and improves the insert tool life. The higher the pressure, the more difficult materials and applications can be machined with excellent results.

Tool Holders /// The Sandvik Coromant advanced cooling technology has until now been a solution primarily for customers using quick change with Coromant Capto®, SL- and QS holding system. Now, the same premium technology can be applied with general shank tools, making it possible for everyone working with wet machining to utilize this highly productive coolant solution, even in small lathes.

THIS TIME AROUND, WE NEED DIFFERENT RESULTS FROM WASHINGTON

New Congress, Same President, Different Results? by JOHN GUZIK

Washington, D.C. – While numbers in the history books will show President Obama won reelection in a landslide, he does not enter his second term with an overwhelming mandate. Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill, Republicans held the House by only losing a net eight seats but fell well short in the Senate where Democrats surprisingly gained a net two seats. The President returns, Republicans still hold the House and Democrats still hold the Senate – we have status quo, right? Or do we? With the convening of the 113th Congress in January 2013, the Senate will have 53 Democrats, 45 Republicans and 2 Independents who will join Democrats giving them a 55-45 advantage. The House of Representatives convenes with 233 Republicans and 198 Democrats. Twenty-four sitting members of Congress lost their re-election and we will see 94 new members of Congress. Combine that with the rising Freshman House of Representatives class, and more than 160 lawmakers (over 35%) will have less than three years of experience in Washington. We see many new faces in Washington these days which means most politicians do not have the long standing relationships with people of opposing political parties that is still needed for compromise in Washington. There are fewer than a dozen Blue Dog Democrats in the House today when just two years ago the fiscally conservative coalition boasted more than fifty members. Of the 34 Democrats who voted against the Affordable Care Act, less than 10 will return to Washington. While the Tea Party Caucus officially has fewer than twenty members, the

number of conservative Republicans has swelled as quickly as the ranks of conservative Democrats has shrunk; leaving a much more polarized, and inexperienced, Washington. This comes at a time when policymakers in Washington are considering trillions in tax increases, trillions in budget cuts, and decisions which will impact every manufacturer in the country. While the election results returned the status quo, business as usual in Washington just won’t cut it this time and many lawmakers are beginning to realize that. Lawmakers in Washington and White House officials are sending clear signals that comprehensive tax reform is emerging as among the top priorities in 2013. Questions still remain however; especially regarding the top income tax rates, how to tax Subchapter S Corporations and other passthroughs who pay rates at the individual level, and which deductions and credits to eliminate or limit. While tax reform will dominate much of the business community’s time, politicians are still searching for the political courage to embark on entitlement reform which all sides agree is central to solving the nation’s fiscal problems. Congress will still have to finish funding the federal government for the previous year when the White House sends up the FY2014 Budget in February which further complicates the fiscal cliff negotiations. The backlog of bills in Congress is long and only growing - from the Workforce Investment Act to a Surface Transportation Infrastructure bill to a solution for doctor reimbursement rates and funding for critical defense programs and bases.

january/february 2013

These are just a sample of the items Congress must address by the end of March 2013. One would think Washington has its hands full and enough on its plate. Yet one law already in place will impact every American – the health reform law known as the Affordable Care Act. States and the Federal Government will begin enrolling Americans into qualifying health plans on October 1, 2013 ahead of the January 1st coverage start date. Regulators in Washington, D.C. continue to issue the new rules and regulations to implement the health care plans in each state. Each Congress in recent memory has continued the stalemate tradition of their predecessors and procrastinates worse than a college student on exam night. However, this year is different. The perfect storm created by the self-imposed fiscal cliff, tax reform, health care implementation, among others, impacts every corner of the country and every industry in every sector. As 2013 starts, we may have a new Congress with the same President, but this time around, we need different results from Washington.

People Power YOUR MOST VALUABLE RESOURCE

No Wonder We Have People Problems... by TED SZANIAWSKI

Companies have been stuck in a rut . . . holding back from growing despite record-low financing costs. “Uncertainty” has been the word of the day and risk avoidance became the rule-of-thumb. But as we move into 2013, growth may once again become the norm and you must be prepared to lead your workers.

YOU MUST ADOPT LEADERSHIP FLEXIBILITY IN ORDER TO EFFECTIVELY RESPOND TO YOUR UNIQUE MIX OF WORKERS.

As the accompanying article indicates, your workforce is critical to your success. And it’s a messy endeavor when people are involved. You must be able to “cut-and-run” --- your ability to adapt in order to effectively lead this dynamic, new workforce is essential. Understand that you have a core leadership style, but you are not trapped in that style. You have the power to select different ways of thinking, acting and behaving in your leadership activities. In fact, you MUST adopt leadership flexibility in order to effectively respond to your unique mix of workers. Adapting is critical and a recent Harvard Business Review study determined that a manager’s leadership style was responsible for 30% of a company’s bottomline profitability! In Leadership That Gets Results by Daniel Goleman, six leadership styles are uncovered. Which of these styles reflects your preferred style? The Pacesetting Leader expects and models excellence and self-direction . . . “Do as I do, now.” The Authoritative Leader mobilizes the team toward a common vision and focuses on the end goals . . . “Come with me.” The Affiliative Leader works to create emotional bonds that bring a feeling of bonding and belonging to the team . . . “People come first.”

08

january/february 2013

The Coaching Leader develops people for the future . . . “Try this.” The Coercive Leader demands immediate compliance . . . “Do what I tell you.” The Democratic Leader builds consensus through participation . . . “What do you think?” One style does not fit all circumstances and one style will not appeal to all of your workers. So, adapt a “Different strokes for different folks” approach to leading your workers. It’s like a recipe! If you mix two parts of Authoritative Leadership, one part of Democratic, Coaching and Affiliative Leadership and just a bit of Pacesetting and Coercive Leadership you have a superior chance of winning. To learn more about leadership styles and how they will impact the effectiveness of your workforce, call or send us an email.

High Performing Companies Take Their Workers Seriously A few things to mull over as we begin this New Year: • 85% of a company’s assets are related to intangible capital such as knowledge and human talent. (Brookings Institute) • Employees are the major source for a company to increase competence and profits. (Michael Porter) • Employee turnover costs companies in the U.S. more than $140 billion annually in recruiting, training, replacement, administrative and other costs. (Keep Employees Inc.) • 57% of companies are worried about employee retention and long-term workforce requirements; 61% are concerned about the cost and disruption of frequent turnover. (HR Magazine) “[Higher performing companies] take their people investment much more seriously”, says Roselinde Torres, senior partner and managing director at Boston Consulting Group. Business experts are predicting that the employment market is flipping and once again, employees, especially talented ones, will be in the driver’s seat. Recent research conducted by SHRM found that 79% of those who quit their jobs name lack of appreciation as the main reason. The 2012 Aflac WorkForces Report indicates that 49 percent of workers are “at least somewhat likely to look for a job this year”. In addition, 50 percent of workers say employee benefits are “very or extremely influential on decision to leave”. As you enter 2013, what steps will you take to ensure that your “best and brightest” employees will not be leaving for better opportunities? We suggest a few things that have proven successful: • Appreciate the importance of the individual & share stories of their contributions. • Help employees discover their talents and show how they fit in the team and in the organization. • Build career commitment and inspire individuals to grow. • Link their contributions to build your culture.

Bio-Film by BRETT “THE COOLANT GUY” REYNOLDS, CMFS

DOES YOUR COOLANT LIFE SEEM TO GET PROGRESSIVELY SHORTER AND SHORTER? DO YOU DUMP YOUR SUMP AND RECHARGE IT WITH FRESH FLUID EXPECTING TO GET ANOTHER 8-12 MONTHS OF COOLANT LIFE, ONLY TO HAVE IT GO RANCID YET AGAIN 6 MONTHS LATER? What is the problem and why does the fluid keep going bad? It has got to be the coolants fault… right? Not necessarily. How thorough were you in cleaning your coolant system? Did you remove the coolant sump, chip conveyor, pumps and screens and really clean them? In addition, did you use a recommended machine cleaner from your fluid manufacturer? If the answer to these questions is no, then you may have a Bio-Film problem. So what is Bio-Film and where does it come from? Bio-Film is a mucus like matrix (Mucilaginous/Glycocalyx) comprised primarily of sugars, called Extracellular Polymeric Substance. Bio-Films are sessile (stationary) and are comprised of various species of bacteria which have significantly different properties from free-floating (Planktonic) bacteria. This community of microbes communicates biochemically within the Bio-Film matrix, which gives it the capability to perform different tasks beyond the capability of any individual bacteria member. An example of the type of synergism between different bacteria species within a Bio-Film community is sited from Dr. Frederick J. Passman, Metalworking Fluids-Second Addition. “What one species of bacteria, (Pseudomonas aeruginosa) produces as a waste product, (Sulfur and Secondary Metabolites), feeds and enables another species of bacteria (Desulfovibrio desulfuricans) to survive. In turn the D. desulfuricans creates conditions that enable P. aeruginosa to attack metalworking fluids (MWF) molecules at a maximum rate.” A recent study sited in TLT Magazine showed the Polysaccharide film produced by bacteria, was measured to have the holding strength of 70 Newton’s; this is equivalent to super glue. This sticky Polysaccharide film protects the bacteria within the Bio-Film community, thus making most biocides ineffective against Bio-Films. Bio-Film needs to be addressed when the sump needs to be changed either by physical scrubbing or by using a pressure washer with hot water or steam capability. In addition, machine cleaners proven to dissolve Bio-Film should be used, or the end results will be the same - subpar coolant life and higher fluid costs. The scope of this article doesn’t cover the additional costs and damage that Bio-Films cause to the machines and also the health hazards and costs associated due to high amounts of bacteria growth.

Stay tuned for more useful coolant tips, from The Coolant Guy!

Feature Story //

...More than Just Pulling the Rabbit Out of the Hat STORY BY BRENT TERHAAR

january/february 2013


The great ones make it look easy. Harry Houdini escaping from the milk can, David Copperfield making a mountain disappear, even David Blaine in a block of ice in Central Park. Illusionists and magicians have a way of making the impossible look possible. The slight of hand, the diversion of your eyes, the props used to conceal the outcome are all tools of the trade to make these illusions look real. The intricate planning and practice to perform these tricks take years to perfect. All of this time and energy leads up to the final moment when the execution of the illusion is flawless – and creates quite a show for the audience. These illusionists have mastered the art of understanding what the audience wants and creating a plan to deliver the show. As the current year draws to an end, and the new-year begins, tax payers are sometimes inclined to go in search of a special magic trick to try and reduce their tax burden. While this approach may bear some fruit, it is likely to be as underwhelming as watching your 10-year-old neighbor pull a rabbit out of a hat at the school talent show. Effective tax management is not about creating illusions – it is a rigorous process that requires careful planning with a long-term view combined with deep industry knowledge and understanding of the tax code. Business owners work hard and strategize all year to find ways to make the bottom line black instead of red, yet they’ll work in haste to find any little thing they can do to reduce taxes by a dollar. Instead of the mad rush at year-end or the endless pursuit for that additional deduction, what if there was a different way to approach this? Like great illusionists, formulating the right plan and consistently executing on that plan can make all the difference. Here are a few things to consider as you take on your year-end tax planning process:

AVOID THE CRYSTAL BALL SYNDROME: Trying to predict the future usually turns out to be a futile effort. This is certainly the case if you’re trying to predict tax law. Our federal legislatures have done a masterful job of making that ball as cloudy as can be. They continually change tax policy, delay promises, and ultimately pass last minute tax bills that make the law so difficult to understand that many businesses never take advantage of the benefits they are due. continued on page 14

TAX PLANNING

...More than Just Pulling the Rabbit Out of the Hat continued from page 13

Don’t get caught in the trap of predicting the future. Why do it in the first place? What usually happens is that in your haste to predict the future, you make uninformed short-term decisions that can have a lasting tax consequence. I’m not saying that taking advantage of current tax opportunities isn’t beneficial – they can be. What I’m saying is don’t make rash decisions in the short term just because you think the tax law will be less beneficial in the future.

Our federal legislatures have done a masterful job of making the crystal ball as cloudy as can be. UNDERSTANDING YOUR BUSINESS: Having the right advisor that truly understands what your business does can make all the difference. We regularly see situations where a company has been misguided by advisors that don’t truly understand or interpret tax opportunities for a particular business situation or industry. Tax law can be complicated. There are certain benefits that are specific to an industry or a business situation that can go under the radar. Many times, these benefits are not apparent to a business owner. Having an advisor that knows your business and the industry you work in can properly match those benefits with your situation.

IT STARTS WITH A PLAN: The most beneficial tax planning doesn’t even start with tax strategy – it starts with a robust business and the owner’s personal financial plan. Understanding what the business owner wants and needs is crucial to properly plan for their current and future tax situation. Whether it is considering the best entity structure to create, determining how to draft customer or vendor agreements, or deciding what estate structure to implement should all be predicated on what the long term plan is for the business and the business owner. You don’t need to be a magician to properly plan for taxes. You don’t have to have a trick up your sleeve. What you do need is a long-term plan to address your business and personal needs. Once this plan is in place, it makes it much easier and more effective to properly implement tax strategies that support that plan.

U.S. Manufacturing:

Is this Resurgence Sustainable? SIDEBAR BY CAROLYN BAGNALL

early every business has at least a casual interest in the commercial real estate market. The tool and machining industry is no exception with the correct facility making a huge difference in both capabilities and productivity. As we’ve seen with the stock market, real estate market information has become increasingly available. However, translating the data and understanding where the true opportunities lie is still a challenge. Industrial property vacancies have dropped on a national basis to 9.1 percent from the highest rates in early 2010. Corporate America has accounted for much of this positive trend by committing to large chunks of space in excess of 1,000,000 square feet in some cases. This could lead you to believe that many of the opportunities have been missed; however that is not the case. The occupiers of real estate below 50,000 square feet still have numerous options and opportunities that didn’t exist in the past. Since 2010 available properties in the desired size and geographic area have not only been available, but have been priced significantly below replacement cost.

THE OCCUPIERS OF REAL ESTATE BELOW 50,000 SQUARE FEET STILL HAVE NUMEROUS OPTIONS AND OPPORTUNITIES THAT DIDN’T EXIST IN THE PAST. Nationally the number of sales bottomed out in 2009 with approximately 40 percent fewer transactions than just two years earlier. Since then, more industrial buildings have been sold each year. Though pricing is well off the high of $92.70 per square foot on a national basis, pricing has experienced a modest gain of 8 percent since the low in early 2011. Record low interest rates have offset the slight increases in the price as the cost of money has never been cheaper.

The U.S. manufacturing sector has been a clear bright spot in the recovery. With both domestic and global consumption rebounding – albeit at a choppy rate – America has steadily increased production of vehicles and parts, semiconductors, civilian aircraft, clothing, fuel oil, and commodity based food items, to name a few. Likewise, manufacturing employment has clearly reversed the downtrend. Since hitting a low point in January of 2011, the manufacturing sector has added 335,000 jobs ending in June of 2012. This is the strongest stretch of job creation in manufacturing since the mid-1990s, and prior to that period, one must go all the way back to the 1970s to find stronger numbers. Suddenly, the industrial warehouse sector looks increasingly robust. Over the last fifteen months, 116 million square feet of warehouse space has been leased up, right in line with pre-recession levels. The key question is, of course, is this resurgence sustainable? Manufacturers ramp up production when there is demand from retail sales, growing exports of manufactured goods, or increasing business investment in equipment. All three were up in 2010. The prior peak for exports of U.S. manufactured goods occurred in the second quarter of 2008. The total was $245.2 billion for the quarter. The ensuing drop took them down to $176.6 billion in the first quarter of 2009. Exports fell by 28.0 percent in less than a year. Then the climb back began. In the third quarter of 2011 exports of manufactured goods edged past the prior peak and for the first quarter of 2012 they reached $252.5 billion. Exports had increased 43.0 percent from the low recorded three years earlier. Retail sales, which the data show are over $1 trillion per quarter, have a greater impact. Therefore, U.S. consumers will be the key to continued recovery. It appears that, with a bit of encouragement from gas prices, mortgage refinancing or other factors, consumers are willing to be confident and to spend. This reinforces the virtuous cycle of growth in manufacturing jobs leading to retail spending which supports manufacturing. This is the essence of economic recovery and sustainable growth. CAROLYN BAGNALL is Director of Research at Cassidy Turley.

OPPORTUNITIES A Real Estate Market Overview continued from page 17

ust as there are two sides to a coin, challenges come along with opportunities. Landlords and owners looking to lease or sell real estate in today’s market have become much more accommodating than just a few years ago. This can be seen in increased warranties, tenant improvement dollars, free rent and lower pricing. Due in part to the specialized nature of many manufacturing buildings, owner/occupants can find themselves strapped to a building that no longer meets their needs. Another challenge is that the pool of companies who can qualify to take advantage of the low interest rates has shrunk considerably. To counteract this trend the U.S. Small Business Administration has increased the size of its maximum loan to $12,000,000.

NOW IS A GOOD TIME TO ALIGN ALL YOUR GOALS AND OBJECTIVES When looking solely at the commercial real estate market it becomes clear that now is a time for action. Companies should do whatever they can to extend leases, refinance or purchase a facility to lock in low occupancy costs for as long as possible. Since most business owners can’t make decisions focused on just one line item, now is a good time to align all your goals and objectives and make sure that your real estate requirements both short and long term are taken into consideration. Whatever decision you make, make it with conviction.

Shop Floor NEWS FROM THE FRONT LINES

Implementing GHS Understanding information on appropriate handling and safe use of hazardous chemicals from THE ATMA SAFETY TEAM

On March 26, 2012, the United States Federal Register published the final rule on the Hazard Communication Standard/Globally Harmonized System. This final rule will become effective 60 days after the date of publication. The changes will bring the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Hazard Communication Standard, which was first adopted in 1983, in line with the international Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). The new rule will provide all employees with easily understandable information on appropriate handling and safe use of hazardous chemicals. What are the benefits? The basic goal of hazard communication is to ensure that employers, employees, and the public are provided with adequate, practical, reliable, and comprehensible information on the hazards of chemicals, so that they can take effective preventive and protective measures for their health and safety. Thus, implementation of effective hazard communication provides benefits for governments, companies, workers, and members of the public.

Sample GHS Safety Label

What is the GHS Safety Data Sheet (SDS)? The (Material) Safety Data Sheet (SDS) provides comprehensive information for use in workplace chemical management. Employers and workers use the SDS as sources of information about hazards and to obtain advice on safety precautions. The SDS is product related and, usually, is not able to provide information that is specific for any given workplace where the product may be used. However, the SDS information enables the employer to develop an active program of worker protection measures, including training, which is specific to the individual workplace and to consider any measures that may be necessary to protect the environment. Information in the SDS also provides a source of information for other target audiences such as those involved with the transport of dangerous goods, emergency responders, poison centers, those involved with the professional use of pesticides, and consumers. continued on page 32

PrecisionNews // NTMA INITIATIVES

How Can NTMA Help You Grow Your Business? Profitability grows when revenue increases and costs are controlled. NTMA can help you with both. Though most of our members are small- to medium-sized companies, the power of the association can help you do business like a large corporation. REVENUE GROWTH • We organize regular business-to-business purchasing fairs, designed to operate like speed dating for suppliers. We invite 100 or more buyers from large companies and then give you opportunities to briefly pitch your products and services. As a result attendees leave with good contacts and solid leads, leading to increased business. Companies have been awarded millions of dollars in contracts as a direct result of these events. • We offer a program called Members First, designed to help members turn to each other to meet needs. Perhaps your next customer is an NTMA peer? Or perhaps an NTMA member would make an excellent vendor for you? Members First helps make the connections. • By interacting with fellow members in your local chapter, you may discover new business opportunities, or ways to work together with peers to increase business or market yourselves cooperatively. COST CONTROL • We offer discount programs with several large suppliers (including Grainger, UPS and Yellow Freight), allowing you to leverage NTMA’s combined buying power for your own benefit. • Our business insurance program keeps more money in your pocket by offering a necessary product in a low-overhead, notfor-profit manner. Our decision resources allow you to be smarter about how you use your resources, resulting in greater efficiencies and lower costs. Learn more at: www.ntma.org/initiatives

Implementing GHS continued from page 13

When will the GHS be implemented? Federal Effective Completion Dates: December 1, 2013: Employers must train employees on the new label elements and SDS format. 2014: Employees shall be retrained one year after initial training on SDS format. June 1, 2015:* Chemical manufacturers, importers, distributors, and employers must comply with all modified provisions of this final rule. Distributors may ship products labeled by manufacturers under the old system until December 1, 2015. * This date coincides with the European Union implementation date for classification of mixtures. June 1, 2016: Employers must update alternative workplace labeling and hazard communication program as necessary, and provide additional employee training for newly identified physical or health hazards. The five main requirements of a Hazard Commutation System are: • Written plan • Chemical inventory • Labels and warnings • Training • Safety Data Sheets (SDSs)
