Editors Corner


In the Arizona Cardinals’ recent nail biting win over, at the time, undefeated Seattle Seahawks, 2nd year quarterback Kyler Murray remarked after the game, “I knew we would win throughout the entire game.”

This, despite the fact that the Cardinals were never ahead of the Seahawks for the entire regulation game.And the odds were stacked against them, for those who are betting fans, which I am not… at -182 odds, the Seahawks had an implied 64.54% chance of beating the Cardinals, or 50/91 fractional odds. I had the opportunity to interview several manufacturing companies for this issue, including a start-up. And as I have interviewed shops during the past many months since COVID-19 came to the United States, it seems to me that business owners/managers fall into 2 categories.The first category responded to the pandemic by ‘hunkering down’ (e.g. to hide out or remain in a place), and the 2nd category viewed these uncertain economic times as an ideal time to enhance their business. This first category of business owner typically reduced their workforce despite the government PPP assistance, made a conscious decision not to make any major capital expenditures, and braced for an ongoing downturn. The 2nd category of business owner, which clearly falls into the classification of optimists, used the downturn to purchase new equipment, and to upgrade their facilities with automation, certification and even new hires. This got me to thinking about what optimism means for business owners, who by virtue of their role, are entrepreneurs. In most cases, optimism is a very beneficial personality trait. Optimism helps us to deal with problems more effectively by focusing on the solution, rather than ruminating about the problem. Entrepreneurship involves systematically and consistently taking on risk. Optimism produces a tendency to act. Entrepreneurs are faced with difficult choices on a daily basis. Rather than wavering on which course of action to take, optimists plunge right ahead.

Kim Carpenter Optimism also facilitates bouncing back after a failure, and to this end, optimists are generally more Takashi Sato resilient. Where failure normally produces ruminating thoughts about how and why it happened, Gene Wirth and what could have been done to avoid it, optimists don’t fall into this trap. Rather, they focus on the task of moving on and starting their next project. Published bi-monthly to keep precision manuThinking positively encourages optimistic people to think more broadly, and this allows them to be flexible and open to new ideas. In a study conducted by economists in Latvia, the researchers found that entrepreneurs’ optimism was associated with a greater increase in their company’s profits a year later. For business owners, being optimistic tends to provide motivation, emotional fortitude and cognitive resilience, all attributes that likely will pay dividends during times like we are facing today with the ongoing pandemic. Also, on a positive note, and again demonstrating optimism, most recent Business Conditions Report from the Precision Metal forming Association noted that while the majority (65%) of respondents said shipment activity was down compared to a year ago, nearly half (~ 45%) said they were expanding their workforce. In one of my interviews, the owner stated his rationale for hiring during this pandemic, “Great machinists are being let go by other companies, so it is an excellent time to secure new talent.” In closing, I wish you the best, and God bless our troops and our dedicated First Responders.

Grant Retrains Nevadans For Manufacturing Jobs Even if we have been blessed with good health, COVID-19 has changed the way we live, learn and work. As we have adjusted to the “new normal,” employees have gone back to work and students returned to school. But for thousands of Nevadans, the pandemic has left them without a job to which to return. The Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation compiles the number of unemployment claims. As of the week ending Sep. 12, there were 201,448 claims for unemployment in Nevada, with 13,848 claims in Washoe County and 169,970 in Clark County. To put this into perspective, Nevada currently has an insured unemployment rate of 15.6%, second only to Hawaii which sits at 20.4%. Through a new program, Nevadans who have been laid off due to the COVID-19 pandemic can be retrained at no cost to work in high-demand manufacturing careers with a federal grant from Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.

QualiChem, Inc. and Star Metal Fluids would like to thank all of our customers in Arizona and Utah who have responded to the call to help fight the COVID-19 virus. We are aware that there are multiple companies in each state participating in programs that include COVID-19 test kits, personal protective equipment, and ventilator components. While most of these companies do not want to be singled out or recognized by name, we believe it important enough to the local manufacturing community that their contributions not go without thanks. Your friends, your neighbors, your peers, and perhaps in some cases, your competitors, are doing what they can to ensure we get back to a more normal way of life. American manufacturers of all sizes, from all regions and industries, are stepping up to fight this invisible enemy. Whether redirecting resources toward production of open-source face shields, ventilator components, or test kits, Americans are heeding the call. And while we thank these manufacturers, it is more important to acknowledge the real heroes in this battle: the healthcare professionals, the pharmacists, the truckers, the grocery store employees, and all those who remain engaged with the public despite the risks. Together, as Americans in all capacities, we will overcome. Thank you to everyone for doing their share. Sincerely, The management teams at QualiChem, Inc. and Star Metal Fluids

While there is a great deal of uncertainty given the pandemic, annualized growth appears likely to remain positive in Q4, bringing the annual equipment and software investment growth forecast to the -4.9 to -6.4 percent range. The forecast for the broader U.S. economy in Q4 is less certain, though annual U.S. GDP growth for 2020 is forecast between -3.8 and -4.8 percent, according to the Q4 update to the 2020 Equipment Leasing & Finance U.S. Economic Outlook released today by the Equipment Leasing & Finance Foundation. Scott Thacker, Foundation Chair and Chief Executive Officer of Ivory Consulting Corporation, said, “This update is arguably one of the most important Outlooks the Foundation has published. There has been much uncertainty about the actual economic performance in Q3 and also about how quickly the economy will rebound in Q4 and beyond. This Outlook will be highly useful in explaining Q3 results and in giving a hint about how the year will finish. I am encouraged to see equipment and software investment in Q4 being forecast as positive, with nine out of 12 verticals that the Foundation monitors showing improvement.” Highlights from the Q4 update include: A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

14 • Nov / Dec 2020

• The contraction in the U.S. economy in Q2 was unprecedented, with highcontact service industries bearing the brunt of the damage. Although Q3 growth will set records, the unpredictable nature of the public health crisis is clouding Q4 GDP projections. Labor market health and the availability of federal stimulus will be critical factors to watch, as will the pandemic’s trajectory. Growth will suffer if another wave hits • The U.S. manufacturing sector has bounced back more quickly than expected.Though a shade over half of the 1.4 million lost manufacturing jobs have returned and job growth was relatively modest in September, other industry indicators such as shipments and new orders suggest that the manufacturing sector will strengthen in late 2020 and early 2021. • On Main Street, a fork has emerged in the road to recovery. A majority of small firms are managing to get by for now. Some—perhaps 10 to 20 percent— have been minimally impacted by the recession and are thriving. At the same time, a sizable and growing minority of firms are at heightened risk of closing their doors for the foreseeable future. • The Federal Reserve has continued its massive quantitative easing program in 2020, and financial markets have responded favorably. Meanwhile, the Federal Open Market Committee has unveiled a new policy framework that will allow inflation to run above the usual 2 percent target for some time. The Foundation-Keybr idge U.S. Equipment & Software Investment Momentum Monitor, which is released in conjunction with the Economic Outlook, tracks 12 equipment and software investment ver ticals.

Due to the intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) of the Set and Inspect app, even inexperienced operators can learn how to use it in 30 minutes or less and immediately create routines to increase production efficiency, decrease operator intervention, decrease scrapped parts, and decrease re-work time with inspection probing. The team at Takumi USA became aware of Renishaw’s new technology in early 2020 and immediately realized the benefits. While Set and Inspect is not loaded directly on the Fanuc control, Takumi engineers came up with a simple solution that provides a seamless integration of the app to the Fanuc control with the FOCAS 2 feature and added a tablet device to the control.With no need to learn macro programming, the machinist can easily program set-up probing routines or inspection routines and send them to the control memory with a single button press. The results are displayed on the same screen during the cycle. They can be used to develop experience data for tooling, track changes to parts, and monitor adjustments to tool wear to determine when the cutter should be replaced. A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

With minimal training required, the operator jogs the probe into position using the handwheel, selects a probing cycle from the menu, and completes the user input fields. The Set and Inspect app does the rest – automatically generating the required machine code for the probing cycle and sending it to the control, which significantly reduces data entry errors and programming time. Set and Inspect can automate a production cycle by inspecting features to determine tool wear and automatically adjusts the wear offsets. Features are available to define how many parts to inspect before adjusting wear offsets, what percentage of the error to apply as an adjustment, and a function to stop production if results are out of tolerance. Takumi USA and the new Set and Inspect app by Renishaw will drive manufacturing process improvements for customers. This feature is now available on theTakumi H-Series 3-axis high-speed double-column CNC machines, theTakumiV-Series 3-axis box way CNC machines, and theVC-Series 3-axis heavy-duty general purpose machining centers.To learn more, visit TakumiUSA.com.

Intel’s $7B Expansion In Chandler Operational, Making It The Chipmaker’s Largest U.s. Factory

saw… tremendous demand, and we got this operation up and running. And, now it is actually running our most leading-edge technology for our key products.”

Intel Corp.’s $7 billion expansion in Chandler is now operational, making the southeastValley semiconductor fabrication factory the chipmaker’s largest in the U.S.

Intel has a shortage of the products now being manufactured at Fab 42, he said. “It has been the last six to eight months that demand has gone through the roof,” Esfarjani said, adding that is partially due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The company calls Fab 42, the fabrication facility that quietly opened earlier this year, the most advanced in the world and one that has been years in the making. Between its two campuses in Chandler, Intel now has close to 900,000 square feet of manufacturing space.

Without being specific, he said the fab would be operating at full capacity “in a very short while.”

Intel hired 3,000 workers over the past 12 to 18 months to operate the fab, bringing the total number of employees at the plant to 12,000, said Keyvan Esfarjani, senior vice president and general manager of global manufacturing and operations at Intel. Fab 42 connects to Intel’s three other fabs at the Chandler plant, making the site the chipmaker’s first megafactory network. It uses the 10-nanometer manufacturing process to produce Intel’s latest generation of products, which power everything from microprocessors and data centers to vehicles and 5G networks. The exterior shell of Fab 42 was finished back in 2013, but completion of the project was delayed “to ensure Fab 42 came online when we expected sufficient demand,” the company said in a statement. “We always kept this one as a contingency space,” Esfarjani said. “As demand came in, we wanted to turn it back on, and lo and behold coming into, especially last year, we A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

Intel is now hiring for another 100 positions. Intel didn’t disclose the median salary of employees at its Chandler plant, but globally, the median salary for an Intel employee is $96,300.About 81% of Intel’s U.S. employees’ total direct compensation exceeds the median salary. Intel has invested more than $23 billion to build hightech manufacturing capacity in the Grand Canyon State since 1996.

Albuquerque’s Casey DeRaad Advocates To Get Bring More Women Into STEM Occupations

DeRaad left AFRL in 2017. She now leads NewSpace New Mexico, an industry group that is trying to build and promote a cluster of space companies with a presence in New Mexico. The organization’s work includes fostering workforce development.

Years ago, while working at the Air Force Research Laboratory on Kirtland Air Force Base, Casey DeRaad found a problem that needed fixing.

As part of those efforts, DeRaad is trying to involve more women in a field dominated by men. She said she has consistently worked to get young people, particularly women and minorities, interested in STEM fields.Those efforts may steer some toward a career they would’ve not gotten into otherwise.

About 5% of participants in the AFRL Scholars internship program, which allows graduate and Ph.D STEM students to work on research-based projects, were either female or belonging to a minority group, according to DeRaad. To boost that number, DeRaad said she worked with AFRL to allow the internship program to accept students from the Ph.D level all the way down to high school juniors.To make up for a potential skills gap between those at different education levels, the program obtained additional funding to allow high-level students to train those with less experience. After making the change, minority and women participation in the Scholars program rose to about 30%, DeRaad said. Having a mentor can be helpful in navigating the professional world. DeRaad encourages young people to seek out guidance rather than wait for it to come to them. “Ask people [for] their stories so that you can get a vision of yourself,” DeRaad said. “You don’t have to wait for someone to mentor you.” 22 / Dec 2020 22••Nov Jan / Feb 2020


In 2017, less than one third of scientists and engineering employees in the U.S. were women, according to the National Science Foundation. DeRaad, who serves on boards for the Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce and Altura Preparatory School, has plenty of advice for young professionals. Maybe among the most important is understanding the mission of the organization, and in particular understanding the problems that leadership is trying to solve, DeRaad said.By Collin Krabbe – Technology reporter , Albuquerque Business First

Daimler, Robotics Partner Test Self-Driving Big Rigs In New Mexico A pair of out-of-state companies have partnered to bring self-driving tractor-trailers to New Mexico roads. Portland-based Daimler Trucks and Torc Robotics out of Virginia have been working together for the past year to bring self-driving technology to the world of freight trucking. Torc, which Daimler owns a majority of and is part of its Autonomous Technology Group, have already rolled out their self-driving tractortrailers on New Mexico roads, Torc Robotics CEO Michael Fleming said. The company says the self-driving technology is meant to be used on highways. Testing can take place on a closed course or the open road, said Suman Narayanan, a director of engineering at Daimler Trucks North America. While the tractor-trailers are designed to be autonomous, each test conducted will have a driver and a safety engineer who can take control of the vehicle if the software does not work properly. “We have been in this business for 15 years, and hub-to-hub trucking is

Revo Half Page Final.indd 1 theCMM best business case” for autonomous driving technology, Fleming said.

Daimler is investing more than $570 million for the development of the self-driving platform, Daimler spokeswoman Anja Weinert wrote in an email to Business First. Once commercialized, the company plans to utilize a model where drivers will drive the trucks a short distance to a hub near the highway, which is where the self-driving technology will start to be used. Once off the highway, the vehicle will go to another hub where a new driver will take it to its destination. The southwest in particular presents a good opportunity because there is a sizable amount of cargo transport that occurs in the region, mild weather conditions, relatively low traffic density and an abundance of straight roads, Fleming added.

2:04:17 PM Daimler hopes to have its self-driving trucks ready to4/6/2020 complete basic, small-scale operations by the end of the decade, Narayanan said.

Though some expect autonomous driving technology to phase out semi drivers, Daimler claims drivers will still be needed once its self-driving platform is commercialized. Due to the demand for freight hauling being larger than the current pool of qualified drivers, self-driving trucks will help fill a need in the market, Narayanan said. Drivers will also be able to work in one location as opposed to driving across the country under Daimler’s proposed model, meaning they will be able to return home after a day of work, Narayanan said. Daimler’s pursuit of autonomous trucking is driven by safety, according to the company.

As part of the partnership, Torc plans to set up a testing facility in the Albuquerque area. The company signed a lease for a site that includes a building last month, Weinert wrote. She declined to disclose the square footage or exact location of the site, instead saying it is near the Albuquerque International Sunport.

More than 4,100 people died in 2018 in connection with big rig crashes in the U.S., according to an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety analysis of U.S. Department of Transportation data. The number of tractor-trailer crash fatalities that year was 31% higher than in 2009, according to the analysis.

Weinert also declined to disclose how many positions will be hired for. However, Torc operates a “small test crew” in New Mexico, and is actively hiring for “many positions” in the area, she wrote. Open positions include test engineer, safety conductor, safety driver trainer, site operation and office management personnel.

Daimler says it is taking no shortcuts in the development of its selfdriving technology. “This is something we take very, very seriously,” Narayanan said. “We don’t want to cut any corners.” By Collin Krabbe A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

NXP has had GaN products in the market for the last six years, but the market is quickly accelerating due to the proliferation of 5G-capable phones, Hart said. GaN provides better efficiency and perfor mance overall as the number of cellphone frequencies has proliferated, he said. The technology is helping to reduce the size and power consumption of base stations, more commonly known as cell towers. GaN production will begin next month in Chandler, he said. By the end of the year, the fabrication will be at full scale for the company’s initial phase. “We continue to expand over the course of 2021, and by the end of next year our vision is that this site is capable of sourcing up to half of the total global market for GaN if our market share continues to expand the way we modeled,” Hart said.

$100M Expansion At NXP Semiconductor In Chandler Now Operational A $100 million expansion at NXP Semiconductor’s facility in Chandler to manufacture 5G cellphone network transistors and RF power amplifiers is now operational. Some 100 employees were hired to work on gallium nitride (GaN) fabrication — a more power-efficient alternative to silicon — that produces 6-inch wafer size transistors and RF power amplifiers that can be installed into cellular towers to expand 5G networks, according to the company. About 250 employers work on GaN in manufacturing and research and development adjacent to the silicon fabrication facility in Chandler. Netherlands-based NXP Semiconductors N is calling the new production line the most advanced one dedicated to 5G transistors and RF power amplifiers in the United States. NXP made the decision about three years ago to bring the production of GaN in-house and build it in Chandler next door to the research and development teams, said Paul Hart, executive vice president and general manager of Business Line Radio Power for NXP Semiconductors. “(Chandler) is where the talent was within the company for compound semiconductor manufacturing and had access to a large engineering work pool in the Phoenix area,” he said.

More employees will be hired as the production ramps up, he said, but he was unable to provide a specific estimate. NXP currently has at least 16 open positions for a variety of engineers at its Chandler facility, according its website. At its Chandler wafer fabrication facility, NXP Semiconductor employs about 1,500 in manufactur ing, research and development, marketing and other business operations. More than half of the employees are working from home during the pandemic. Only the manufacturing employees are working on-site.

Lucid Motors Inc. started taking reser vations in October for the lowest priced version of its upcoming line of luxury electric vehicles. Tesla Inc. quickly responded with a price cut for its Model S and Elon Musk tweeted a taunt at the Newark company that’s led by the engineer who designed it. Lucid said the base model of the Lucid Air will cost $77,400 — or $69,900 after applying the U.S. federal tax credit. But it won’t be delivered until 2022. The vehicle will be manufactured south of Phoenix in a plant being built in Casa Grande.

month. “Well, of course we can compete. We created it. People say we can’t do better. Of course we can. We can certainly do better than what we did 10 years ago.” Lucid is taking a page out of Tesla’s book by rolling out its early more expensive models to help generate cash flow. The two more expensive versions of the Air are expected next year. The Air Dream Edition will be first at $169,000, followed by the Air Grand Touring for $139,000. The company said buyers willing to wait until 2022 can reserve the base model with a $300 deposit. That’s considerably cheaper than the $1,000 deposits the company talked about when it unveiled the cars last month. The entry level model of the Air will have less horsepower and less range than the higher-priced versions. It will run at 480 horsepower instead of the 1,000 horsepower of the Dream Edition. The range of the base edition will be an EPA projected 406 miles, compared to 517 on the top model. By Cromwell Schubarth – TechFlash Editor, Silicon Valley Business Journal A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

Honeywell Acquires Ballard Unmanned Systems To Grow Unmanned Aerial Systems Business Honeywell International Inc. has acquired assets from privately held Ballard Unmanned Systems as it grows its unmanned aerial systems business. Ballard Unmanned Systems, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Southborough, Mass.-based Ballard Power Systems Inc., designs and produces stored-hydrogen proton exchange membrane fuel cell systems that power unmanned aerial systems such as those used for energy inspection, cargo delivery, and other commercial and defense applications. “Adding Ballard Unmanned Systems to the Honeywell family is another example of our commitment to invest in the growing UAS segment,” Mike Madsen, president and CEO at Honeywell Aerospace, which is based in Phoenix, said in a news release. “We can now begin producing top-quality, scalable power systems for our UAS customers and eventually adapt these systems for other future aerospace, defense and adjacent segment applications.” According to the release, fuel cells “function much like traditional batteries but with a key difference:They don’t run out of power or need to be recharged.” Ballard Unmanned Systems’ fuel cell power systems can run up to three times longer than batteries, the release noted. What’s more, UAS powered by fuel cells “can fly longer distances, are A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

Custom Automation IS Built-In Social Distancing David Autor, economics professor at MIT, has called the COVID-19 crisis an “automation forcing event” that will fundamentally transform the economy.

The Robotics & Automation Experts “Today automation is a necessity to

stay competitive, and it’s getting more developed and complex with every passing day. Available choices range from simple fixturing to complex integrated factory automation. As the number of options increase, it’s important to have a partner who understands and adapts. Capex mistakes can be costly, and so we help design the most optimum and robust process solutions to meet specific market demands.” Delta Technology As an owner or leader in your manufacturing entity, intuitively you know that you must adopt automation to your business in order to survive long term. So, what is preventing you from taking this crucial step? There are a number of misconceptions about automation including: It’s too expensive —You might think that you can’t afford to move forward and do this, but in many cases, the reality is that you can’t afford not to do it. Calculating your ROI is the first step. One must look at the total cost of ownership when evaluating an automation solution. Effectively automating your manufacturing process will invariably increase output while reducing costs, mainly in direct labor and overhead. Including these savings in your calculations likely will improve the ROI. Direct labor is often your largest cost. It can account for up to 75 percent of the total life cycle cost of a piece of non-automated capital equipment. Automation is a way to keep labor costs down, with the added benefit of freeing your most valuable asset — your employees — to apply themselves in more efficient and productive ways. The bold leader in your industry who acts now will have the competitive edge moving forward. Don’t be left behind in the automation revolution. I’m a job shop, with low volume, high mix production — Many believe that only high part volumes justify automation. Not so. The reality is that sucMany believe that only high part volumes justify automation. Not so. The reality is that successful and flexible automation improves productivity, which results in higher throughput. And to close the circle, improved productivity can open up new capacity that can be filled with new work, thereby increasing volume, spindle-time, and profitability. Furthermore, numerous changeovers shouldn’t be a reason not to apply automation. Frequent changeovers fuel the need for rapid setups and simplified machine operations, two key benefits that may be realized with a well-designed and flexible automated system.

We don’t want to lose our best employees — More often than not, using an automated system will allow your best employees to apply their skills and talents in areas that are more beneficial to the company. Let automation technology address the routine, repetitive, physically challenging tasks in your plant, and use the highly skilled workers in much more efficient and productive ways. The simple task of moving parts from point A to point B is a perfect example for automation. A physically-demanding task such as this can be done easily with robot or pick-and-place automation, thereby reducing potential employee injury and associated workers comp claims. Automated equipment is too difficult to maintain —Implementing a well-thought-out automated system, one that has a modern control package design, should simplify your maintenance efforts. Whether you are buying an entirely new automated production system or upgrading or retrofitting existing machinery, a modern control package’s features (such as full-color screens, 3-D graphics, and PC-based controls), all help to enable user friendly online training for setup, maintenance, troubleshooting, and repairs. Intuitive, graphic-laden prompts and images allow operators and maintenance personnel to be more productive than ever before. Proudly introducing Delta Technology. President and CEO Lyle Rusanowski acquired the company, in business since 1997, in 2014. Today, the business has a customer base that spans the world, and has completed nearly 2000 customer projects. It has grown its revenue more than 7-fold under Lyle’s leadership and vision through superior performance

to its customers. Delta Technology’s projects have supported a number of industries in automation, including: Automotive, Semiconductor, Consumer Goods, Medical/Pharmaceutical, Industrial, and Aerospace. Its management team is comprised of executives who bring years of expertise from automation and packaging companies; and Engineering Fellow Leon Krzmarzick is a leading expert in vision inspection systems, a key ingredient in modern automation. Lyle says, “Over the years, as we’ve interacted with potential clients, we would hear one or more of the objections listed above.” He continued, “People want to adopt automation into their business and they know it is fast becoming a ‘must do’.What we’ve done at Delta Technology to overcome common objections, particularly with respect to the cost perception, is create a business model that enables every manufacturing business, regardless of how small or how large it is, to implement automation. We refer to it as the ‘Delta Technology Platform’.” Today, Delta Technology is segmented into 6 distinct business units: 1) Custom Automation – Delta Technology offers custom automation and consulting services to our clients. Gary O’Dell, Director of Application Engineering, says, “Custom automation is our core business. Through this division, we help our customers develop solutions that are unique to their business.” “We are technology agnostic”, Larry Miller, Director of Engineering, adds, “As an example, there are 10+ leading robotic manufacturers in the market. Manufacturing entities are hard pressed to determine which solution is optimal for their business, and when they bring in sales people from each of these entities, by the nature of the sales person’s role, they cannot receive unbiased recommendations.” He continued, “When they engage with Delta, we analyze their business to determine the best robotic solution for them. There are times when a customer contacts us to help them with a robotics solution, and once we’ve evaluated their manufacturing line, we determine that their application isn’t well suited for a robot – there are other automation tools that would be more beneficial to them. Key to our philosophy is that we customize the automation equipment to our customers’ processes – we don’t change your business; we make your business better.” 2) Delta 4P Consulting – The team saw a need in small to medium-

sized companies that don’t have the resources to have their own automation group. Matt Lanfrankie, Director of Sales says, “Our Delta 4P Consulting program is designed to help those new to automation develop a long-term plan to implement automation into their process. Delta would act as their outsourced CAO, or Chief Automation Officer. This is a truly collaborative effort, a partnership between Delta and our valued clients.” 3) Delta-Semi – located in Hermosillo, México. Lyle - “Even within our Custom Automation division, we recognized the need to segment this into entry level automation versus high level, highly integrated automation.To this end, we have our division in Tempe, Arizona that manages the complex, highly integrated custom automation solutions, and our Delta Semi division is highly capable of supporting entry level custom automation for our customers.” Matt says, “When you think automation, you don’t have to think ‘costly’. Delta is well-positioned to provide automated solutions both complex and simple, from long-term ROI to quick payback… we help your business exactly where you are today.” 4) Machining Solutions – Low volume, high precision machine shop located in Gilbert, AZ that supplies Delta Technology with many of our one-off custom parts for automation projects as well as offering this same high-quality service to other clients. 5) Delta Products – The company has leveraged the knowledge gained from their consulting and custom automation activities to develop standard products for specific applications, therefore adding value to the Custom Automation business. One such example is their Packaging Products Group. This group focuses on pouching, bagging, stretch wrapping, palletizing, case packing, biodegradable packaging, tray formers, as well as many more areas. Paul Soucek, Packaging Systems Sales Engineer says, “Between Matt and I we have nearly 60 years of packaging equipment and materials experience. As a company we made the decision that the more services, solutions, and expertise we can provide to our clients, the better long- term partner we can be for them.” Paul added, “We also designed and launched a comprehensive builtContinued Next Page A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

focus your attention on the areas that you can control—your practices and your processes… both of which can be enhanced with automation.” And if you are asking yourselves, where do we begin? Larry Miller says, “When considering the move toward an automated production floor, think incrementally—tackle small, manageable projects at first. There are several good reasons for this, but the bottom line is that you (and your Delta Technology team) want your first venture into automation to be successful. A small project is easier to manage, control, and document than a large project. Also, communicating the benefits of implementing a small project is likely to be easier than doing so for a huge project.” it-your self mac hine tending website. This allows clients unfamiliar with automation to put together their ideal system at their own pace, and immediately see what the estimated cost would be. We’ve seen a huge shift in demand for machine tending applications and users have found that it’s not as expensive or intimidating as they first thought. And they have the entire team at Delta to guide them in their journey to automation.” 6) Contract Manufacturing – Either as an interim or as a long-term solution, Delta Technology offers Contract Manufacturing services to all of our clients. If you are having floor space issues or staffing challenges, Delta will work with you to come up with a solution that solves the problem. Lyle says, “Whether it is a running a custom piece of equipment we build, or putting in a complete packaging line, Delta is open to a program that benefits all parties.” Matt added, “Technology is continuing to drive down the cost of automation, and today virtually any small manufacturing business can take advantage of it. A recent study from The International Federation of Robotics (IFR) reported the cost of automation has dropped considerably and continues to decrease enabling much more widespread adoption. At Delta Technology, our job is to help take the mystery out of automation, keeping it simple for our customers. For those just beginning the process of automation, we help them to ‘dip their toe’ into it without risking their short-term profitability.” He continues, “If you are concerned about displacing your employees, remember that automation isn’t about replacing employees (this is a misnomer), it is about freeing them up from repetitive work and redeploying them to more value-added assignments. And when you find yourself once again advertising for skilled workers that aren’t available, you will be thankful that you implemented an automation strategy that relies upon technology, not workers, for applicable areas of your business. “If you are still telling yourself, ‘We don’t have time to implement automation’. Keep in mind that you can’t control your competitors’ manufacturing practices, so your only recourse is to A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

Lyle says, “If you think automation is out of reach for your company, at the very least, give us a call. We’ll let you know how we can help your company automate to remain viable and profitable into the next decade.” He adds, “This pandemic has made it a challenge for workers in a manufacturing environment to practice social distancing and therefore to feel safe. Automation enables many tasks to be handled with less operator intervention and can add in essence, new automated workers who cannot contract or transmit the COVID-19 virus. Matt adds, “Custom automation is built in social distancing.” Large or small, simple or complex... whether your manufacturing needs require simple fixturing and tooling, or fully automatic production lines, Delta Technology can provide exactly what you need. Delta Technology can help take your new product idea from concept stage… to a 3-D solid-model… to a working prototype… to pilot production… right on through to high quality manufacturing.

A Well-Trained Workforce Is Manufacturing’s Future For many people, the future of work seems scary.The coronavirus has exposed the vulnerabilities of our modern economy, forcing thousands of businesses to shutter and putting millions of Americans and people around the world at financial risk. As businesses adapt, they are finding new ways of working, including accelerating automation. It leads you to ask – where will the jobs come from? The truth is that there are plenty of jobs. Industry has been adapting and embracing automation for generations – the power loom is an early example – and studies have shown that these efforts can actually create more jobs. A 2019 European economic study found that companies that did not invest in robotics between 1990 and 1998 reduced jobs by 20% between 1998 and 2016, whereas those that did invest from ’90-‘98 created 50% more jobs during the same time period. So, the real question is, “How will we prepare people for the jobs of the future?” The way we train people today is not suited for these new jobs.We need to rethink how we prepare people for the workforce. The manufacturing sector has been dealing with this challenge for a long time, and we’ve built a skilling approach that can shine a path for all industries. First, Businesses Need to Invest Properly in Re-skilling New technologies are transforming dull and repetitive jobs into those requiring analytic and problem-solving skills. Manufacturing is on the front lines of this change – electricians are becoming digital electricians, material handlers are becoming robotically enabled, and assembly line workers are becoming robotics programmers. To train people for these new roles, we need to invest more in re-skilling programs, which many companies are doing, but not well enough. For example, Deloitte reports that only 17% of companies have made “meaningful investments” in reskilling initiatives related to AI, one of the technologies shaping the future of work.We need A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

to go beyond providing access to digital learning resources and invest in programs that provide hands-on experience. Stanley Black & Decker has partnered with companies like Ready Robotics and Tulip to automate repetitive tasks at several of our plants, creating programs to re-skill all of our workers who were previously doing that work.These employees now work side-by-side with collaborative robots, becoming programmers supervising their robots and being freed up to spend more time finding ways to increase productivity. Second, We Need to Move Away from a Singular Focus on Four-Year Education The value of a four-year education as a one-sizefits-all solution is more in question now than ever before. Why would we encourage our young students to take on tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars of debt when there are high-paying careers waiting for them in skilled trades, IT and more? Part of the reason is the lack of viable educational pathways. As businesses, we can create more opportunities through initiatives like apprenticeship programs, so successful in countries like industrialized Germany, where high school students get hands-on experience and build bridges

to opportunities in these industries as they shape their future. Specifically, we need more efforts like the Business Roundtable’s “Multiple Pathways” initiative, which is designed to increase the percentage of underrepresented populations in the workforce, providing economic opportunities and a pathway to long-term professional growth for working adults and students without two- and four-year degrees and from underrepresented populations.

A full service grind shop with an ever expanding list of services and a staff with decades of experience.

In that same spirit, Stanley Black & Decker launched a new Vocational Leadership Program that offers employees the chance to learn the ins-and-outs of manufacturing over a 12-month period, requiring only a high school diploma or GED to participate. Third, the Private Sector Needs to Do More to Sell Certain Jobs Effectively

Many of the jobs of the future will be in industries like manufacturing, construction, heavy industry and other skilled trades that are often stigmatized – thought of as having limited career potential. During my time as chief scientist of the U.S. Air Force, I learned that mission provides purpose, inspiring people to pursue their path with passion.We need to sell the mission and value of these critical jobs of the future so that young people understand that skilled professions are not like they imagined. They are meaningful, well-paying jobs that are essential to unlocking human progress. Marketing and advertising has the power to inspire new generations, and it is incumbent on the private sector to shine a new light on these careers. That’s why our company also launched an annual Maker Month each October, which celebrates these skilled trades and engages students across K-12 on the importance of STEAM careers. These efforts can also help educate parents and educators guide younger generations toward exciting manufacturing careers. Finally,We Need to Drive the Right Behaviors through Tax Incentives and Grant Programs Supercharging our skilling ecosystem will also require policies that spur the investments we need to succeed. We need more grant programs encouraging students to enter skilled trade educational pathways, including

technical and community colleges. Even though vocational training is often less expensive than a traditional four-year education, it can still be expensive. We need to make it more affordable so that anyone – regardless of his or her socioeconomic status – can build a career. We also need tax credits to encourage corporations to invest in more research and development. Innovation will help create new types of jobs, providing even more opportunity for people to be successful in new ways. The future of work presents immense opportunity, and with the pandemic continuing to threaten our economy, business leaders have a responsibility to chart a path forward for the workforce. We must bring together a wide range of stakeholders at the global and local levels to build united, integrated plans that solve for this skills gap challenge.We call on other companies in the private sector to join us in seizing the opportunity and building a better future together. Alone we can go fast, but together we can go far. By: Mark Maybury, Ph.D., CTO Stanley Black & Decker A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

companies have the advantage of agility. When they can reinforce their capacity for speed and adaptation by tapping the resources of partnerships, everyone can potentially win: students, entrepreneurs, researchers and customers/consumers/end users. Successful business clusters in places like Boston, SiliconValley and Austin,Texas, all have entrepreneurial-focused universities nearby. At many universities, resident entrepreneurs provide an invaluable learning lab for students planning start-ups as well as those who will apply their creative thinking and business savvy to “skunk works” at aviation and aerospace giants. A co-located research park can be a proving ground for possibilities, allowing the next wave of leaders to gain experience beyond solving technical challenges—learning to maneuver the demands of financing, managing intellectual property, reviews and approvals, marketing and establishing a supply chain. One such innovator, VerdeGo Aero, recently moved to build market share and increase name recognition in a rapidly emerging aviation sector. Company CEO Eric Bartsch and Executive Chairman Erik Lindbergh teamed up with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University to develop and commercialize patent-pending technology designed to mitigate electric aircraft noise.

Opinion: Economic Downturn Opens Doors For Entrepreneurs A silver lining glints on the horizon for the aviation industry. In the commercial lull of the pandemic, investors and entrepreneurs are fixing their eyes on the future to seize opportunities to push aerospace technology forward.As industry leaders have pointed out in AviationWeek panels, defense and commercial space innovators are still hiring, and air mobility enterprises have attracted private equity investors. We also see smaller companies aggressively hiring to establish themselves as midtier providers. In addition to producing the workforce of tomorrow, a university’s contribution to our industry’s recovery is to provide an environment where academia, industry and entrepreneurship can create mutual benefit that translates into new products, services and solutions.

Although electric aircraft promise reduced carbon emissions, fossil fuel use and operating costs, the propellers or rotors can be relatively noisy. Traditionally, electric aircraft rotors can spin faster to gain efficiency while also increasing noise levels, or spin slower and be less efficient but quieter. The technology now being commercialized by VerdeGo Aero would automatically adjust the pitch of rotating propeller blades while also adjusting motor torque to maintain constant thrust. This approach makes it possible to reduce noise or increase efficiency, while maintaining substantially constant thrust, altitude and airspeed. Using the new technology, electric aircraft could be designed to operate most efficiently once they are at cruising altitude, where noise abatement may be less of a concern, then switch over to a lower-noise mode as they descend over urban areas. Another entrepreneur, Reamonn Soto, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran, was wrapping up his master’s degree when he had a big idea that could save gas turbine operators millions of

dollars annually.To build his business, Sensatek PropulsionTechnology, Soto took advantage of incubator space at Embry-Riddle’s Research Park, which has forged partnerships with private industry as well as local, state and federal policymakers and agencies. The Sensatek business model—licensing patented wireless sensor technology to increase the operational reliability and performance of jet engines and high-temperature process flow applications—proved appealing to an array of investors. Soto’s funding from all sources now stands at more than $4.5 million. His innovation, based on entrepreneurial out-of-the-box thinking, created high-paying new jobs. Universities rely on industry support to help entrepreneurs like Soto achieve liftoff. For example, Launch Your Venture incentivizes Florida university students to refine their best startup ideas for changing the future of aviation, aerospace and engineering. Another competition, the TREP Expo, puts would-be aerospace entrepreneurs on a ladder to success and greater support. In 2017, Soto qualified in the TREP Expo to compete in Launch Your Venture, which he won, garnering a much-needed $10,000 for his business. Businesses like Sensatek andVerdeGo Aero—encouraged by strong industry partnerships— also help add value to graduates as they enter the workforce. Just as engineering is applied science, entrepreneurship is applied talent, fusing technology and business to put ideas at our service. P. Barry Butler is president of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

Boeing 777X Engines Win AA Certification GE Aviation said that its massive GE9X jet engine, which powers Boeing’s new 777X widebody airplane, has been certified by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration authorities.The certification marks an important milestone in the Boeing 777X jetliner program and comes after problems with the engine that delayed the program’s schedule for months.

“It takes the world’s best talent in jet propulsion to create a game-changing product like the GE9X engine,” GE Aviation President and CEO John Slattery said in a statement. GE9X program General Manager Karl Sheldon said company officials are pleased with the performance of the engine following extensive ground and flight testing by Boeing. Eight GE9X test engines completed just under 5,000 hours and 8,000 cycles to win the required FAA certification, the company said. “There is no substitute that can achieve the combination of size, power and fuel efficiency of the GE9X. This engine will deliver unsurpassed value and reliability to our airline customers,” Slattery said. Boeing and GE Aviation said the GE9X engine is designed to consume 10% less fuel compared to the older GE90-115B engines and 5% better “than any other engine in its class.”The big engines also will help airlines cut smog-causing emissions. GE Aviation said its focus remains on working with Boeing to complete the 777X flight test program and entry into service for airlines, which the Chicago-based jet maker recently delayed until 2022.By Andrew McIntosh – Staff Writer, Puget Sound Business Journal A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

Upgrades Their Machining Capabilities With Their Purchase of A Haas 5 Axis UMC-1000 SS To Manufacture Porsche® Performance Accessories

It’s a beautiful thing when your business is also your hobby. And so it is with James E. Patrick III, who founded Patrick Motorsports in 1989. James Patrick (JP) was recently out of college and not yet 25 years old when he opened his business. More than 30 years later, his passion for motorsports overall, and Porsches specifically, hasn’t waned - and this is just one of the reasons the company has excelled. “Long before I launched Patrick Motorsports, my mother was my business manager in my entrepreneurial ventures when I was a teenager”, he says, “and she thought my hobby of rebuilding cars would keep me out of trouble.” James’ father wasn’t as enthusiastic – he was a real estate developer and didn’t want JP wasting his money. James says his father did instill in him a respect for money. “He would say ‘You can come to me for advice but don’t come to me for money’; he felt giving money wasn’t the way to help people.” “In High School, I bought cars to refurbish and my cheapest car cost me $80 – it had no engine.” JP first attended college studying business / economics at the University of Arizona, but left after, in his words, too many girls. When he transferred to Arizona State University, it was a professor, the dean of Fine Arts, who saw the 1962 ragtop Beetle VW that he had restored to original condition, who helped him to realize his love for cars could parlay into a business, James says. In his early 20s, James first went to work for a business owner who dealt exclusively with Porsche 930 turbo cars, and it was at this job he applied what he had learned about merchandising, sales, new product development, economics, and even a little about accounting. The owner and James went in different directions after a few years and JP, still a very young man of 24 years, and self-described ‘hustler’, opened his own business. “Patrick Motorsports would specialize in the Porsche performance aftermarket industry”, he said. More than 3 decades later, Patrick Motorsports is renowned by Porsche enthusiasts throughout the world, and it offers more than 18,000 SKUs in stock, with ~1100 available on their website.The company has formed strategic alliances with some of the largest aftermarket industry leaders, including: Centerforce Industries, Fuel Safe, Setrab, and Petersen Fluid Systems, to name A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

a few. It has also designed and commercialized its own branded product line, which includes lightweight and DME conversion flywheels, 3.6L 964, 993 and 914-6 engine conversion products, and a wide variety of Porsche transaxle conversions and upgrades. The company also provides ‘Concours Winning’ restoration services, including in-house interior trimming, complete body and paint services, machined Porsche replacement parts and Dyno tuning. Patrick says, “Our customers are outstanding – they are passionate Porsche owners. They have very high quality standards and they are driven by the performance of Porsches.” He quips, “Most of our customers don’t need their Porsche to get to work.” In the early years of business ownership, Patrick Motorsports employed a JourneymanTool & Die maker. Patrick would come up with new product concepts, and his machinist would use the few manual machines the company owned to manufacture the design. Once the design was finalized, he would send it to a machine shop where production parts were manufactured. Patrick Motorsports has grown, as JP says, “Organically and methodically over the past 3 decades. “We’ve never had a partner or cash influx, though we’ve had an excellent banker and CPA who have been instrumental in our growth.” The company grew over the years from first renting a small warehouse, to purchasing 3 properties, first a 5200 square foot building, then adding a 10,000 square foot building, and most recently designing & developing the state of the art 33,500 square foot ‘showroom and mini-factory’ it resides in today. JP also owns a ¾ acre lot adjacent to its facility to enable future growth. Outsourcing production machining was part of Patrick Motorsport’s business model until ~4 years ago. “We were sending our product designs to Colorado, and within Phoenix

The addition of Y-axis and live tooling allows milling, drilling, and tapping for increased machine capabilities.” Patrick Motorsport’s 2nd machine tool purchase was the Haas VF4SS, which is a 40-Taper highperformance Super-Speed vertical machining center. Joshua says, “The VF-4SS is our best selling medium-sized VMC – the perfect high-production workhorse.” Business growth at Patrick Motorsports has been steady over the past 3 decades and this past year didn’t change this trajectory. JP says, “A few months ago I made a decision to upgrade our machine shop to 5 axis machining. A few machine tool sales people came to see me, including one who sells used machines. He knew that the machine I wanted was a Haas 5 axis machine, and he told me that there were several Haas 5 axis used machines he could find for me.” James continued, “I am not a believer in purchasing used equipment – whether it’s my truck or a machine I am buying for my business.To make the argument for new even more pronounced, this sales guy told me he could get me a machine for X dollars, when in fact this same machine purchased new from Ellison Machinery was not much more money. Again, I get local service, I get a warranty with my new machine; why would I buy used.”

to multiple manufactures, and we just weren’t comfortable with the quality and control. Our manual machine shop was great for making first article parts, but I felt a need to bring production in-house.” He added, “When I purchased the property we reside in today, it was always my plan to build a dedicated machine shop in the facility.” JP did some research on CNC machines and the dealers in the Phoenix market. “I wanted a machine dealer that excelled at service and was local. I also wanted a machine that met my needs and price point as a motorsports manufacturer. Ellison Machinery, dealer for the USA made Haas line, was an ideal match for me. Also, I knew other machine shops who were making great parts on the Haas machines, and these owners gave very favorable feedback on the machines.” He adds, “I knew I could spend more money on a machine, but I felt that I didn’t need to overdo it. Key to my business philosophy is to always pay my bills, and the price point of the Haas machines enabled this.” JP’s first machine tool purchase was the Haas ST-30/Y. Joshua Hansen, Ellison Business Manager supporting Patrick Motorsports, says, “The Haas ST Series high-performance turning centers were designed from the ground up to provide setup flexibility, extreme rigidity, and high thermal stability.

Weeks ago, Patrick Motorsports purchased their first 5 axis machine, a Haas UMC1000 SS (Super Speed). Joshua says, “5-axis machining is an effective means to reduce setups and increase accuracy for multi-sided and complex parts. The larger travels and bigger platter of the Haas UMC-1000 Series Universal Machining Centers make them perfect solutions for 3+2 machining and simultaneous 5-axis machining of large parts. The UMC-1000 SS is equipped with a faster spindle, high-speed tool changer, and high-speed trunnion table to reduce cycle times and boost productivity.” He adds, “When James made the decision to upgrade his machine shop with 5 axis machining, he recognized the added benefit of the options available with the new machine, including: the Wireless Intuitive Probing System, Through-Spindle Coolant, High-Speed 50+1 Side-Mount Tool Changer and the 12 station Chick Tombstone, amongst others.” He adds, “With James’ new product designs, he was largely making them on the lathe with some later operations on the mill. With the UMC-1000 SS, Patrick Motorsports will be able to increase the number of new designs when they are using their 5 axis machining center, and they will be able to reduce the operations necessary.” When asked what advice he could give aspiring entrepreneurs, James answers, “Do what you love to do, develop relationships with your bankers, save money, and the advice you don’t want to hear is what you need most.” Work at Patrick Motorsports is rewarding, challenging, and different everyday. If you have a love of motorsports, and of Porsches, and are an experienced machinist who can program with Mastercam, contact the company. If you have a Porsche you want restored, visit their website at: patrickmotorsports.com Joshua says, “All Haas products are manufactured in Oxnard, California – and it is the largest, most modern machine tool manufacturing operation in the United States.” To learn more about the USA designed and manufactured Haas machines, as well as Ellison Machinery’s other fine machine lines, contact Haas Factory Outlet / HFO130, a Division of Ellison Machinery Company, at (480) 968-5877 or visit their website at EllisonAZ.com A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

Manufacturing in U.S. Expands at Fastest Pace Since Late 2018 U.S. manufacturing expanded in August at the fastest pace since late 2018, powered by growth in new orders that are a bright spot in an otherwise struggling economy. A gauge of factory activity increased to 56 during the month from 54.2 in July, Institute for Supply Management data showed. Readings above 50 indicate expansion, and the figure surpassed nearly every estimate in a Bloomberg survey of economists and the median projection of 54.8.

At the same time, Fiore said he expects the recent strength to continue in September, traditionally a good month for factories. Fifteen of the 18 manufacturing industries tracked by the ISM, the most since March 2019, reported growth in August, led by wood products, plastics and rubber, food and textiles. Comments From ISM Respondents “Business is very good. Production cannot keep up with demand.” – Chemical Products “Current sales to domestic markets are substantially stronger than forecasted.” – Fabricated Metals “Homebuilder business continues to be robust, with month-over-month gains continuing since May.” – Wood Products “Capital equipment new orders have slowed again. Quoting is active. Many customers waiting for the fourth quarter to make any commitments.” – Machinery “We are seeing solid month-over-month order improvement in all manufacturing sectors such as electrical, auto and industrial goods. Looking to add a few factory operators.” – Plastics The pickup in U.S. manufacturing output is slightly faster than Europe’s, according to separate data from IHS Markit. At the same time, an acceleration in new orders contrasts with a slight slowdown in that gauge for the euro area, highlighting uneven global growth. In addition, the U.S. gains aren’t enough yet to bring back manufacturing jobs: The ISM’s

employment index, while rising to a six-month high in August, continued to show factories are cutting staff. The ISM report doesn’t detail the actual levels of improvement in manufacturing since the survey of purchasing managers asks whether activity is increasing, decreasing or stagnant. So the figures are subject to big swings during turning points in the economy such as now. The ISM’s index of factory inventories fell to 44.4 in August, the lowest since January 2014, indicating stockpiles were declining at a faster pace. Customer inventories contracted at the quickest rate since June 2010, the report showed. “The recovery in production is badly lagging the stronger turnaround in spending, with the result that inventories are now looking very lean,” Andrew Hunter, senior U.S. economist at Capital Economics Ltd., said in a note. “That points to further gains in production in the months ahead.” The overall manufacturing gauge was also boosted by a slowdown in delivery times, which indicates supply bottlenecks. The ISM’s measure of export orders also rose to the highest level since the start of the year. Bloomberg News; By: Katia Dmitrieva A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

Honeywell Aerospace will be repair ing a n d ove r h a u l i n g the engines for the U.S. Army’s CH-47 Chinook helicopter fleet for the next five years after the company won a contract. The work on the T55-GA-714A engines will take place at Honeywell’s new facility in Phoenix, where new engine production is also done. “Honeywell remains committed to supporting the T55 engine and the CH-47F Chinook program with improved maintenance practices, expanded repair capacities and engine modernization improvements that will meet the helicopter’s needs for years to come,” Dave Marinick, Honeywell’s president of Engines & Power Systems, said in a statement. “Honeywell’s unparalleled T55 repair and overhaul facility was designed to provide the highest level of support for the U.S. Army’s needs today and in future missions. Every aspect of the layout and design of this new facility was carefully planned to ensure operational efficiency with U.S. Army mission readiness in mind.” The company said having production and overhaul work in the same place will allow resources to be shared and can accommodate a surge output of 20 engines per month. “We’ve made substantial improvements to the shop layout and process flow of the T55-GA-714A maintenance lines,” said Lesley King, senior director, ISC Operations, Honeywell Aerospace, in a statement. “So we can double our capacity in the shop and take advantage of our engineering resources on-site to ensure we are meeting our delivery commitments to the Army.” The CH-47F Chinook helicopter hauls troops and cargo for the Army. TheT55 engine was introduced in 1955, and Honeywell has been making improvements on it since 1961. Honeywell said one of its latest enhancements for the engine increases horsepower that will allow the helicopter to increase its useful load at higher-density altitudes. The deal with the Army is an indefinite delivery contract, which allows for an unlimited quantity of services for the life of the contract. By Jeff Gifford – Phoenix Business Journal

Introducing Phoenix Fab and Design... Machining Plus Powder Coating...It Is The New Company You Definitely Want To Meet

There is no denying that the pandemic wrecked havoc with businesses all over the world. In the US alone, according to the New York Times, 850,000 businesses across the country shut down permanently at the end of August. In manufacturing, businesses fared better than in other industries. And there is another bright spot – there are even companies that opened during (and even because of) COVID. Phoenix Fab and Design is a perfect example of a business that opened shortly after COVID hit here in the United States. Ian Geitner, co-owner of the company, says, “We launched our business because of COVID.” He continued, “If there was a positive outcome that came out of our pandemic, it is the recognition that we must not rely so much on companies outside of the USA to manufacture our products.We started Phoenix Fab and Design because we believe in bringing manufacturing back to the USA.” Ian’s partner and founder of the company, Phil Heath, is by all accounts, a serial entrepreneur. He has launched and co-owned many businesses, with the last being sold to a public company. “I wanted one more major business venture in my career”, he said, “and manufacturing seemed to be a worthwhile business, particularly once COVID hit.” Phil says that when he told others he was launching a new business, many told him he was crazy to do so in such uncertain times. “It is actually a perfect time to get busy when others are floundering in the uncertainty”, he replied. He added, “I am a firm believer in ‘If you build it, they will come’.” Phil believes in serendipity, defined as the occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way. “I wanted to open a machine shop, and I had no background in it. I was introduced to Ian’s brother Elliot, and then Ian, through their construction business called Geitner Brothers Construction. I found them both to be so smart, respectful, and hard working, and today I consider both Geitner brothers family to me.” Phil offered Ian a partnership in the business, and Ian immediately accepted the opportunity. “We didn’t use hiring sites to bring on new employees”, Phil says, adding “They just came to us – from referrals and from chance encounters.”When Phil took one of his off road vehicles to be powder coated, both the service and pricing helped him to decide to add powder coating as a sister entity to Phoenix Fab and Design. “I didn’t know the first thing about powder coating”, he admits. Both he and his brother-in-law are owners of Elite Powder Coating and booked a flight to Nashville, TN, where they would attend a 4-day training class in powder coating. Phil is dyslexic, and by day 2 of the training he had had enough and booked an early flight back to Phoenix. “I took the instructor aside before leaving, and asked him if he had an interest in heading up my powder coating business in Phoenix.” Today, Phil’s former powder coat instructor is the Manager at Elite Powder Coating, co-located in the building with Phoenix Fab and Design.

Back to Ian – he is new to manufacturing as a business, but it has been his hobby for much of his life. “I first learned about machining when in junior high school here in Arizona.The junior high and high school I attending still offered classes like drafting and I had early instruction in CAD software.” Ian would take what he learned in class, and spend evenings building CNC machines at home. He is an engineer by education, having graduated from Northern Arizona University. Ian comes from an entrepreneurial family, so joining a new business during a pandemic wasn’t as scary as it might be for others. His family owns a construction firm, and Ian gained invaluable experience in project management, operations, marketing and even managing team members through the family business. In just about 6 months, Phoenix Fab and Design equipped their new machine shop with an astounding 8 machines, including 2 lathes and 6 Vertical machining centers. They’ve grown from Ian and his partner, to a team of a half dozen today. Ian says, “The majority of our team members have engineering backgrounds, and this enables us to help our customers with the design of their new products.” In addition to machining, Phoenix Fab and Design additionally has skilled MIG/

TG welding in house. “We welcome inventors who come to us with a concept for a new product hand drawn on a napkin”, he adds. Ian says, “Our first couple of machines were purchased used, they were Haas machines, and then the next 6 machines we purchased were all Haas machines and purchased directly through Ellison Machinery, the dealer for Haas in Arizona.” The company also has a small 3D printer in-house, and Ian says this is useful for their customers requesting quick turn prototypes. Today, Phoenix Fab and Design’sVertical Mills include: •Two (2) HaasVF-4SS - 40-TaperVertical Mills • Three (3) VF-2SS – 40 Taper Vertical Mills. Ian says, “ The Super Speed (SS) spindle has the speed to really push a small end mill through aluminum at extremely high feed rates, and the power to remove lots of material with a shell mill.” • One (1) Haas VF-6SS, -40 Taper Mill.This is Phoenix Fab and Design’s largest Super-Speed vertical mill, Ian says, adding, “It’s massive. It has a work envelope with 64” x 32” x 30” travels and comes standard with 30+1 tool capacity and 12K RPM 30HP Spindle.” Additionally, Phoenix Fab has two turning centers: • One (1) Haas ST-20Y & Haas Barfeeder • One (1) Haas ST-30Y & Haas Barfeeder & Royal Rotarack Alex Anderson, Ellison Business Manager supporting Phoenix Fab and Design, says, “These Lathe’s give Phoenix Fab the ability to turn up to 12” diameter or produce high volumes of smaller parts (up to 3” diameter) that can be automatically fed by the Barfeeder and offloaded by the Royal Rotarack. The Y axis and live tooling allows these lathes to also cut features that would otherwise have to be done in a mill in an additional operation. Phoenix Fab can complete your large orders for complicated parts quickly and competitively due to their investment in modern automation.” When Phil and Ian contacted Ellison Machinery, the local distributor for the Haas machine tool line, they were introduced to Alex Anderson. Serendipity rears its head once again. Phil says, “Alex knew one of my race car mechanics.” Alex is the business manager supporting Phoenix Fab and Design. Ian says, “We couldn’t be happier with Alex and the team at Ellison Machinery.The Ellison team is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of machining and they know tooling also.Alex is an engineer himself, and there are times when I call him just to get his opinion about designing or processing – in essence, I bounce ideas off him. I don’t feel like Alex is trying to sell me something all the time – rather he is imparting recommendations to me.” Phil adds, “Alex provides incredible support for our business – there are times I call him multiple times a day, and he always makes himself available.” Phil and the team didn’t check with other machine tool dealers prior to purchasing their Haas machines. “I have heard very good things about the Haas machines, and the Haas machines are

extremely capable machines for our products. Service and support from Ellison Machinery is outstanding.” Ian says, “We were fortunate to secure a few clients before opening Phoenix Fab and Design. One of our clients specializes in Billet Aluminum Classic Car Parts. It was important for them and a requirement to work with a manufacturer here in the United States. We are grateful for their business and we are honored to provide them the solution”. Ian brings a critical management skill set to his team – it’s called teamwork. “Every Friday we host a‘Creativity Workshop’ for the entire team. Each week, a different team member presents something they learned in the past week. It can be a new way to use a tool, or a new machine feature, as a couple of examples.” It is no wonder that hiring hasn’t been difficult for Phoenix Fab and Design. It’s not just the exciting products they make, its also being part of a team that makes coming to work something team members want to participate in. If you are looking for a new machine shop, one that has design capabilities, and you want to do business with a company that is proud to manufacture products in the USA, one that finds manufacturing rewarding, contact Phoenix Fab and Design at (480) 930-9907. Ian says, “We are an excellent option for customers who want to brand their products, ‘Made In The USA’. Haas Automation is the largest machine tool manufacturer in North America, building a full line of CNC vertical and horizontal machining centers, CNC lathes, rotary tables and 5c indexers. Haas machine tools and rotary products are built to deliver higher accuracy, repeatability and durability than any other machine tools on the market.

security leadership council. “It would be reduced to a small share of the market, producing electric vehicles that are not as advanced and as attractive as those produced by China and by Chinese subsidiaries, and a loss of jobs, industrial depth and technological skill,” he said. China has come to play a leading role in the development of EVs.The US trails it in the extraction of minerals such as lithium, graphite and rare earths, as well as the production of lithium-ion batteries and finished EVs. There were 1.2m EVs sold in China last year, compared to 320,000 in the US, according to McKinsey. “They not only have more electric vehicles purchased in their market, they have more companies, they build more batteries, they have gone around the world for rare earths and other metals that go into these vehicles and locked up or gained preferred access to many of them,” Admiral Blair said. “So they have a jump on the direction that the electrical vehicle industry is going.” According to Simon Moores of Benchmark Mineral Intelligence, China produced 72 per cent of the world’s lithium-ion batteries in 2019, while the US accounted for just 9 per cent. He warned in May that the US was falling further behind, as China is building one battery factory a week, while the US builds one every four months.

The US must urgently build up an electric vehicles industry or risk becoming dependent on China for its automotive future, a group of senior military and business leaders have warned.

China “has not just built an entire suite of supersized battery megafactories for its auto industry, but the supply chain to feed them”, he said. “China produces only 23 per cent of key battery raw materials combined. Yet it produced 80 per cent of the next step in the chain — battery chemicals — and 66 per cent of cathodes, 82 per cent of anodes and 72 per cent of battery cells.”

China is in the process of consolidating control of the supply chain for electrified transport — from mineral extraction and battery production to manufacture and sales of the vehicles themselves — according to the group, Securing America’s Future Energy, which campaigns for US energy security.

Still, the US may have a considerable edge over other carmakers in the form of Tesla, the world’s largest carmaker by value. But even Tesla head Elon Musk has expressed worry about a shortfall in raw materials needed to realise his ambitions.

Failure by US authorities to counter Chinese dominance within the next five years risks the “withering of the US automobile industry” and the loss of millions jobs supported by the country’s auto sector today, said Admiral Dennis Blair, a former director of national intelligence, who sits on SAFE’s energy

Pipistrel picks Honeywell fly-by-wire controls for Nuuva V300 UAV

Fly-by-wire computers act as the brains of an aircraft’s flight controls by operating them electronically. The compact version from Honeywell has features derived from decades of expertise in fly-by-wire systems for airliners, but it’s much smaller – roughly the size of a paperback book. This product is intended for smaller autonomous cargo and urban air mobility (UAM) vehicles and adds stability and performance by driving flight controls electrically, without heavy hydraulics, control cables, or push rods. “One of the toughest challenges logistics companies face today is meeting

the demand for same-day delivery. Vehicles like Pipistrel’s Nuuva V300 are going to be a real breakthrough in the race to solve this problem,” said Stéphane Fymat, vice president and general manager, unmanned aerial systems (UAS)/ UAM, Honeywell Aerospace. “We listened to our customers and built a product that meets the unique needs of this segment, and we’re extremely proud that our Compact Fly-By-Wire system will be guiding these vehicles as they take to the skies.” Pipistrel’s Nuuva V300 long-range, large-capacity, autonomous UAV will take off and land vertically with battery power, without requiring a runway, and has significantly lower operating costs than helicopters. It can carry loads up to 300kg (around 660 lb) for more than 300km (around 186 miles), allowing deliveries to areas traditionally accessible only by helicopter. “After years of excellent cooperation in the UAM sector, we chose to work with Honeywell in the development of the Nuuva V300 as well,” said Ivo Boscarol, founder and CEO of Pipistrel Group. “We see this cargo aircraft paving the way for the passenger-carrying Pipistrel 801, our proposed air taxi for Uber Elevate, as both aircraft share similar architectures. Honeywell’s expertise and the proven capabilities of its Compact Fly-By-Wire system will provide airliner levels of safety for our novel air vehicles.” Posted by Eric Brothers A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

When All Else Fails, Make the Parts Yourself

I’ll give you an example—an inspiring tale of a real, creative workaday person that took great change head on and overcame it. The story of Bob Ballantyne, a director of research and development, and his team at Resource West in Grand Junction, Colorado. A couple of weeks ago, I had a chance to talk to Bob about the results they were seeing at Resource West. To call it impressive during the current climate is an understatement. Resource West is up about 20%, yearover-year. According to Bob, if he and his team had not taken the actions I’m about to explain, they would be down, big league. But going from negative territory to +20% is a big delta.That’s a job-saving-and-creating positive delta. ResourceWest makes evaporators. Evaporators reduce waste water, which reduces costs and is environmentally beneficial. It occurred to them their technology could also be used to sanitize large public spaces: arenas, gas stations, and convention and conference centers.They found opportunity, dug in, did their research and developed a sanitizing line of equipment. But they didn’t stop there. They faced real shortages in purchased parts, due to supply chain interruptions. So, they hired young engineers from college and redesigned the parts that could be made from composites. They bought six large 3D printers and began to make the parts themselves, bringing a big aspect of the supply chain in-house while simultaneously cutting down on unit costs. Injected plastic parts were also becoming a problem with a backup in mold design and production. In response, the team researched electrical discharge machining (EDM) and began designing their own molds to overcome issues in the supply chain. “The EDM is our next phase,” said Ballantyne. “We tested the theory by pricing the production process out and seeing what the return on investment was—and we’ve decided it is a go. We are now in the research phase of making the correct unit decision.” Ballantyne looks at recessions not as a scary thing, but as time to look at what could be changed and improved—and then do it. He says during flush economic times, you don’t always have the time to

I doubt anyone would argue that the past six months have brought great change for our country, and much of the world. Some parts of our economy were (and remain) virtually shut down. For those fortunate enough to continue to be open and viable, great changes and the need to solve new, large and diverse problems is the new daily reality. I have always admired creative people. People who, when faced with a challenge, approach it with curiosity and openness.When others freeze or panic, these special people keep their calm and boldly innovate through it. I’m not referring to geniuses that bring us big technological breakthroughs like Elon Musk or Steve Jobs or scientific geniuses like Albert Einstein, Linus Pauling or Madame Curie. I mean the unsung heroes, the everyday creative wizards solving real business-threatening problems that pop up fast and furious during times of great change.

Major Semiconductor Maker Zeroing In On Phoenix Site For Huge Factory An expansive swath of desert in nor th Phoenix is likely the landing s p o t f o r Ta i w a n Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. Ltd.’s $12 billion plant, multiple sources with knowledge of the deal confirmed. The world’s largest contract silicon chip manufacturer announced in May that it was planning to build a $12 billion plant in Phoenix and create more than 1,600 jobs.Taiwan Semiconductor, which makes silicon chips for Apple and several other major technology companies, has been evaluating several sites in Phoenix for the factory. The company is expected to officially confirm the location by the end of the year. The north Phoenix site, which extends across nearly 3,700 acres near I-17, is currently undergoing a rezoning through the city of Phoenix, which will create a major employment corridor in north Phoenix. The proposed zoning includes three districts: a technology campus, a technology park and freeway mixed-use development. A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

The land is owned by the state, but the first portion of the site, a 1,128-acre parcel at the northwest corner of Loop 303 and the 43rd Avenue alignment, will be sold for a minimum of $89 million at an auction scheduled for Nov. 2. An aerial map shows a large swath of state land that the city of phoenix is aiming to prime for an employment corridor. The site being considered by Taiwan Semiconductor is at the northwest corner of Loop 303 and the 43rd Avenue alignment. The portion scheduled to be auctioned on Nov. 2 is proposed to be rezoned as a technology park, which is allowed the same uses as a general commerce park zoning and allows offices, research laboratories, warehousing and manufacturing, and prohibits any type of residential use. The zoning allows for buildings 56 feet in height, or up to 80 feet with a use permit and site plan. According to city documents, 10% of the technology park portion must remain open space. Landing the factory would bolster the Valley’s semiconductor industry, which

“They are still considering multiple sites in Phoenix and should make a decision before the end of the year,” Christine Mackay, economic development director for the city of Phoenix, said in a statement. In a statement, Chris Camacho, president and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council, said: “There continue to be multiple sites under review at this time.” Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey said in a May statement that theTaiwan Semiconductor project will create 1,600 high-tech jobs, as well as thousands of additional jobs for suppliers. The $12 billion in capital expenditure will take place from 2021 to 2029. has been slowly been bleeding jobs as more manufacturing has taken place offshore. It also will bring a bigger player to the region that includes the likes of Intel Corp., with its Chandler campus employing about 12,000 people as well as ON Semiconductor Corp. and Microchip Technology Inc.

“TSMC could have picked any place in the world to build this advanced manufacturing factory. They chose Arizona for our unbeatable business climate, already thriving tech sector and ready access to an international supply chain,” Ducey said at the time.

Intel’s long-awaited $7 billion expansion in Chandler became operational earlier this year, making the southeast Valley semiconductor fabrication factory the chipmaker’s largest in the U.S. The company hired 3,000 workers over the last 18 months to work at the new fabrication facility.

Taiwan Semiconductor has been working with the Trump administration as part of a White House effort to bring manufacturing jobs to the U.S. and reduce reliance on foreign sources for components sensitive to national security interests.

Phoenix-area officials reached for comment didn’t confirm Taiwan Semiconductor had selected a site, and company officials couldn’t be immediately reached for comment.

ISO 9001: 2015 Certification With The Help Of Consulting Group BMSC Enables This High Growth Company To Manufacture Parts For All Precision Manufacturing Industries I believe manufacturing (and perhaps all) business owners fall into 2 broad categories, and it has become more evident during our recent pandemic: those who in the face of an adverse economic climate ‘hunker down’, and those who view it as an opportunity to advance their business. This second category of business owners is bold, optimistic, and calculated in their growth strategy. Nick Jackson, President and founder of Autoline Industries, clearly falls into the 2nd category. Headquartered in Mesa, Arizona, Autoline Industries is an innovative manufacturing and distribution company specializing in aftermarket automotive performance parts, silicon ASIC hardware, and mil-spec components for defense, aerospace and commercial industries. Originally founded in 2003 on a foundation of motorsports, the team at Autoline set out on mission to raise the standard in racing suspension. Over the course of 17 years, they have realized their founding vision by manufacturing high quality aftermarket automotive products that have been trusted by professional drivers and enthusiasts across the globe. Focusing on street and track ready suspension systems and components, Autoline’s thoughtful design and quality craftsmanship have led to the founding of two well-known brands within the aftermarket automotive sector,Voodoo13 and Ksport.While Autoline and its subsidiaries have become synonymous with quality craftsmanship, Nick also credits some of the company’s success to its continuous product development.The company designs over 50 new applications each year to ensure they stay ahead of the ever-evolving world of motorsports. This aggressive product development, combined with a loyal team and cuttingedge technology, has resulted in Autoline’s astonishing growth. Nick says, “While the Ksport andVoodoo13 brands remain true to their founding missions of designing and manufacturing aftermarket automotive parts,Autoline has evolved to be much more diverse in the industries it serves.We’ve expanded our capabilities and have manufactured a wide range of products from golf training aids to defense system components, as well as Automotive, Firearms, Military, Semi-Conductor, Prototypes, and Molds.We are proud to continue to grow our vast array of applications every day.” When the pandemic first hit, Nick described the sudden halt in business as if someone had turned off a light switch. Lucky, this slow down only lasted for about a month, then “business turned back on for both entities and I even hired a few new employees”, Nick says. Still, Nick felt that the pandemic offered an opportunity for Autoline to expand its business through strategic diversification. “We manufacture superior products for the aftermarket auto industry and through Autoline into other industries, but why not aggressively grow our support in a wide variety of industries, including aerospace, defense, medical and semiconductor.” The company has an extensive machine shop, and it resides in a massive~100,000 square foot facility A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

that Nick purchased in 2014 and completed a full renovation on in 2017. “Space to accommodate our growth isn’t an issue”, Nick quipped. Nick says that he had contacted Bretta Kelly, owner of BMSC, about 5 years ago. “I felt back then that we would benefit from ISO certification”, Nick says. Though Nick was impressed with Bretta and how she could help his company to certify, the timing just wasn’t right. “We were really busy and had just moved into our new building”, said Nick.When the pandemic hit, Nick felt it was an ideal time to re-engage with BMSC and take the steps to achieve certification. Nick works with the Arizona Manufacturing Extension Partnership (Arizona MEP) on a regular basis, and it was through MEP that he contracted with BMSC. Nick began working with BMSC in May and they certified successfully to ISO 9001: 2015 in October. “Bretta and her colleague, Debbie Hart, are amazing; they are very thorough and knowledgeable.They are 2 of the few people who work 24/7 like I do. One or the other regularly responds to emails well into the evening.” Nick says that both he and the entire Autoline team really enjoyed working with the BMSC team. Prior to engaging with BMSC, Nick had hired an individual with quality experience to manage the ISO certification process. “They didn’t work out so it became my job to work with the BMSC team”, he says. Of the experience, Nick says that it wasn’t too difficult – we had many of the processes in place already. He admits that the terminology was different, and it required putting everything the team did into standards. “I feel like one of the greatest outcomes of certification was that it helped our team understand completely the importance of tracking and paperwork”, he adds. “I highly recommend Bretta Kelly’s company (BMSC) to help any company to achieve certification”, Nick says. Autoline’s ISO 9001: 2015 certification was put into place specifically to grow their customer base with new customers. Nick says, “Whether it’s assistance with product design, CNC machining, storage, assembly, coatings or even drop-shipping, we are here to help businesses succeed.” If you are seeking a machine shop that is ISO certified, has a superior team of employees in place and is headed by an aggressive, hard working owner, you should contact Autoline by phone at 480-829-8100 or visit them online at autolinemfg.com.

by pushing distributed production much further. a slight drop of one-tenth of a percent from July and a large drop from their all-time high of 57.9 percent in March 2012. By Anthony However, unlike her father, Marie comes from a psychology background Noto – Reporter, New York Business Journal rather than a pure technology focus. Understandably, her skillset affords her an understanding of human behavior enabling her to approach the leadership role from a more strategic angle.

Still, having grown up with the technology, Langer is no stranger12/21/18 to the10:14 AM mystic surrounding additive manufacturing. “Additive has a lot of rumors, frustration and of course a lot of magic.To really grow additive and realize its potential starts with working on the industrialization of this technology,” she says. “Of course, that means having sustainability in processes, solid connections on the digital level and the constantly working to improve usability of additive systems.” Like any maturing technology, 3D printing has enjoyed the benefits of having a lot of early adopters, and innovators who really wanted to understand how the technology could work. This led to significant usage within rapid prototyping as well as establishing a necessary foothold within academia and R&D centers. Of course, moving that momentum to mainstream production environments requires a different level of engineering and, quite frankly, user education. “When Covid-19 entered the global stage, it brought attention to the whole topic of flexible production and dynamic supply chains,” she says. “And as global supply chains collapsed, c-level leaders and companies realized the need to prepare for a world with more localized production as well, not either/or, but as well.” At least initially, EOS saw more interest in its technology, primarily in polymer, because it enabled companies to produce critical PPE parts to address the immediate medical demands. “The pandemic helped many manufacturers realize the technology’s potential in a very intense way,”

she says. “I was excited we could provide technology that could help in a very dire situation.”


Local Machining Cuts Your Costs

Covid-19 also opened the door for more collaboration within the industry. “It always helps to have a common enemy – making it much easier to open up and collaborate,” she says. “You start to discuss more and to try to understand how as a group you can be more influential. I’m a strong believer in collaboration and cocreation.”

Of course, additive manufacturing has not been immune to the downsides of the pandemic. After all, the global economy is down significantly, which translates to a noticeable dip in capital investments. “Many investment decisions are in limbo just because no one knows what the new normal will be. Our technology can be a solution for this kind of environment,” she says. “If people learn the technology, they can be better prepared for the next crisis by enabling companies switch to more localized production.” Perhaps the greatest opportunity for additive comes when looking at the technology’s potential role within the smart factories of tomorrow, especially considering the trend of mass customization as well as a strengthened reliance on data and digital technologies. “We see the potential to be a core platform provider, from a manufacturing point of view, and really position ourselves at the center of the modern factory,” she says. “We are moving from being additive pioneers to digital manufacturing champions. It is a true mindset shift.” As part of building the digital value chain, EOS has invested heavily in connectivity in recent years. Langer also see business models shifting to pay-per-use and remote service offerings making it much easier to operate in this space. Of course, as business models shift and manufacturers gain a better understanding of how smart manufacturing can work, the transition will also face significant hurdles when it comes to using data. “Not everyone will want to share data,” she says. “However, collecting all this data and aggregating it with machine learning and

AI to make sure that we build on existing capabilities. Data will also help us offer much better products to our customers including software upgrades to improve production efficiency.” The biggest challenge facing EOS is same one facing the entire industry. Simply put: How does additive reach that next level? Manufacturers are very focused on cost improvements. And, often the cost per part metric is the entry point in convincing companies to invest in additive technology. Unfortunately, as long as additive struggles to reach an attractive cost per part, providing production-based manufacturers with a competitive advantage will remain a challenge.

02/16/10 This is an important metric for the mainstream user,A2Z and Langer sees the it as an opportunity to continue Metalworker pushing additive capability. “It’s really ensuring that this technology is making -a step forward becoming 1/3 page square 5 3/8 x 5and 3/8" a mainstream production process,” she says. “That is the biggest challenge additive has to master. Our goal is to be the company that masters it first.”

As Langer guides EOS into the smart future, she firmly believes in embracing a distributed leadership style, ultimately empowering experts to move the technology forward. As part of a distributed leadership style, she also believes in teamwork with clear responsibilities and accountability. “It is about empowering and really helping employees grow,” she says. “What I have learned over the last year is that I am able to process, quite fast because I love and embrace change. Being a leader requires communicating carefully, thoughtfully and with transparency.” Even in a distributed leadership environment, people still want to look to one person for direction – and Langer is okay with being that person. “I want everyone to be involved, while still providing clarity from the top. Even if everyone wants to sit on the leadership team, very few people have the guts to take a position to drive the company forward,” she says. “You have to be tough with decisions, while still showing empathy and even vulnerability.” Success is about finding the right mixture of those qualities.

Daring NASA Mission Touches Asteroid, Awaits Confirmation Of Scooped Sample In one of the most ambitious games of tag in human history, NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft has successfully reached out and touched Bennu, a tiny, top-shaped asteroid that’s been spinning through the solar system for a billion years. If all went according to plan, the spacecraft scooped up a bit of material during its brief moment of contact and departed seconds later with precious cargo: rocks and dust dating back to the solar system’s birth. Confirmation of a successful sample will take days, but even now, the team knows that the spacecraft touched down on Bennu’s surface within 2.5 feet of its target. “We’re safely moving away from the asteroid’s surface,” said University of Arizona planetary scientist Dante Lauretta, the principal investigator of OSIRIS-REx, after the team confirmed the spacecraft’s sample collection mechanism activated. “We did it, we tagged the surface of an asteroid.” OSIRIS-REx could bring back more material from another world than any other robotic mission, with only the Apollo moon landings collecting more extraterrestrial rock and dust. If OSIRIS-REx has successfully collected enough of a sample, the spacecraft will depart Bennu in March 2021, reaching Earth two and a half years later to eject the filled capsule, which will parachute to the deserts of Utah for collection and study. OSIRIS-REx stands to provide a wealth of insight into Bennu’s history, and perhaps help scientists better understand the origins of water and life on Earth. “Asteroids are like time capsules floating in space that can provide a fossil record for the birth of our solar system,” A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

62 • Nov / Dec 2020

Getting to Bennu has been a hard, 16-year journey for the mission team.Though the mission was first conceived in 2004, NASA didn’t formally select it to fly until May 2011. Mere months later, OSIRIS-REx’s original leader, University of Arizona planetary scientist Mike Drake, died after a prolonged illness following liver failure. University of Arizona planetary scientist Dante Lauretta, Drake’s deputy, stepped into the role left by his mentor, and the mission has been carried out in Drake’s memory. To safely reach the Nightingale sampling site on Bennu, the OSIRISREx team had to map the area’s surface hazards. Green regions are hazard-free. After launching on September 8, 2016, OSIRIS-REx traveled tens of millions of miles to arrive at Bennu in December 2018. Bennu is the smallest celestial body a spacecraft has ever orbited: a mere rubble pile less than 1,700 feet wide on average, barely held together by its own feeble gravity. In such tenuous conditions, even the subtlest forces can nudge OSIRIS-REx out of whack, such as the pressure of sunlight pushing against the spacecraft. As a result, the OSIRIS-REx team has had to model the spacecraft’s behavior and check its orbit to an unprecedented degree. Without regular corrections, errors in OSIRISREx’s trajectory would add up quickly, eventually leaving researchers without an accurate sense of where the spacecraft is at any given time. “We’ve set the world records for smallest orbit achieved and smallest body orbited, and there’s a reason that people haven’t done this before—it’s very difficult,” says Lockheed Martin’s Olivia Billet, a systems engineer on OSIRIS-REx. “It’s a whole new way to operate.”

$100M Expansion At NXP Semiconductor In Chandler Now Operational A $100 million expansion at NXP Semiconductor’s facility in Chandler to manufacture 5G cellphone network transistors and RF power amplifiers is now operational. Some 100 employees were hired to work on gallium nitride (GaN) fabrication — a more power-efficient alternative to silicon — that produces 6-inch wafer size transistors and RF power amplifiers that can be installed into cellular towers to expand 5G networks, according to the company. About 250 employers work on GaN in manufacturing and research and development adjacent to the silicon fabrication facility in Chandler. Netherlands-based NXP Semiconductors NV is calling the new production line the most advanced one dedicated to 5G transistors and RF power amplifiers in the United States. NXP made the decision about three years ago to bring the production of GaN in-house and build it in Chandler next door to the research and development teams, said Paul Hart, executive vice president and general manager of Business Line Radio Power for NXP Semiconductors. “(Chandler) is where the talent was within the company for compound semiconductor manufacturing and had access to a large engineering work pool in the Phoenix area,” he said. A ceremony including NXP CEO Kurt Sievers, Gov. Doug Ducey and other NXP executives to officially unveil the expansion will be streamed online beginning at 8 a.m. on Sept. 29. NXP has had GaN products in the market for the last six years, but the market is quickly accelerating due to the proliferation of 5G-capable phones, Hart said. GaN provides better efficiency and performance overall as the number of cellphone frequencies has proliferated, he said. The technology is helping to reduce the size and power consumption of base stations, more commonly known as cell towers. GaN production will begin next month in Chandler, he said. By the end of the year, the fabrication will be at full scale for the company’s initial phase. “We continue to expand over the course of 2021, and by the end of next year our vision is that this site is capable of sourcing up to half of the total global market for GaN if our market share continues to expand the way we modeled,” Hart said. More employees will be hired as the production ramps up, he said, but he was unable to provide a specific estimate. NXP currently has at least 16 open positions for a variety of engineers at its Chandler facility, according its website. At its Chandler wafer fabrication facility, NXP Semiconductor employs about 1,500 in manufacturing, research and development, marketing and other operations. More than half of the employees are working from home during the pandemic. Only the manufacturing employees are working on-site. By Erin Edgemon – Phoenix Business Journal

Tesla Outlines Ambition To Halve Cost Of Batteries Elon Musk laid out ambitious technical plans that he claimed would cut the cost of Tesla’s batteries by more than half and put the company on course to make an electric car priced at $25,000, on par with traditional internal combustion engine vehicles, in about three years. The closely watched battery plans included a deeper level of vertical integration that will take the electric car maker into all stages of manufacturing its batteries, including processing the raw materials and even buying lithium deposits still in the ground. The unveiling of the plans followed months of anticipation among Tesla’s growing army of stock market bulls, fed by Mr Musk’s promises of groundbreaking advances. Wall Street analysts and battery experts largely applauded the battery plans, though views differed on how significant the developments would be in enabling Tesla to maintain its long-running advantage over rivals in terms of efficiency and cost. “It’s insane innovation,” said Pierre Ferragu, an analyst at New Street Research. “They’re demonstrating they’ve got a path to maintain their lead for the next decade.” Tesla was so confident others could not catch up that it had taken the unusual step of being completely open about its technical plans, he added.

Techniques that Tesla had been working on for years had contributed to many of the advances outlined on Tuesday, and underlined how hard it would be for other car companies to catch up, Mr Ferragu said. These included a method for charging new batteries, and a new way of building a car by casting it in three parts, with the two ends joined by a battery pack acting as a structural element in the middle of the vehicle.

Veteran-Owned, Minority-Owned Galaxy International Certifies To AS9110 With The Help Of Consulting Group BMSC Galaxy International, an FAA 145 Certified Repair Station, is proud to announce that it recently added AS9110 Certification to its credentials. The company, celebrating 20 years in business, used the initial slowdown in business due to the COVID-19 pandemic, to institute many new upgrades to the business. In addition to certification, the company also is in the process of opening a branch in Miami, Florida, where they will repair landing gear. Galaxy International founder and owner Joe Arismendez was an employee for a Fortune 500 company for almost as long as he has run his own business. “At a large company, you do the same thing over and over; in our small business everyone wears many hats.” Joe worked in many different positions at a company well known in the valley though it went through several changes in name and ownership – first Garrett Aviation, then Allied Signal, and then finally Honeywell. Joe says, “For about a decade before I left, I dreamed of owning my own business.” And so in 2000, when Joe’s employer became Honeywell, Joe took the step of business ownership. He established Galaxy International to provide maintenance, repair, inspection, and overhaul of aircraft parts. Joe knew this business well, as he had decades of experience with his previous employer and he had seen how small businesses throughout the world fit into this business as a supplier to Honeywell. As most new business owners start, Galaxy International launched at Joe’s house, actually on his back porch, with just 2 employees, Joe and one other. Today, the company has 20 employees, and resides in a 15,000 square foot facility, in Goodyear, Arizona. It has a daunting list of parts it is approved to manufacture on its website – the list is 24 pages long. The company differentiates itself from many of its competitors in its ability to test the parts they overhaul. Joe says, “Turn time is a critical for our customers (who often don’t keep inventory of parts).To shorten the time it takes us to ship the part to our customers, we employ Journeyman Tool and Die makers who make the tooling necessary to test the parts.” The company also recently purchased a test stand for flight controls, and they expanded their machine shop, also in an effort to bring more tasks in-house. Joe says, “Our goal here is not only to cut turn time, but also to lower the costs to our customers.” By necessity, the company has long been an approved FAA 145 Certified Repair Station (FAA G0XR924Y, EASA.145.5645). The term Repair Station refers to a maintenance facility that has a certificate issued by the FAA underTitle 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 145 A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

66 • Nov / Dec 2020

and is engaged in the maintenance, inspection, and alteration of aircraft and aircraft products. FAA rules are specific on who can perform maintenance and approve an aircraft, airframe, engines, etc., for return to service after maintenance has been performed. Joe says, “To take the company to the next level, I knew that our company and our customers would benefit from AS9110 certification. There was never a question that once we took the step to certify, we would contract with Bretta Kelly, owner of BMSC.” Joe has known Bretta for several years, and even worked with her on certifying at another company. Joe says, “Nabil Abduljawad, our Chief Inspector, was our team member who drove the certification efforts internally once we engaged with Bretta and her colleague, Debbie Hart.” Nabil came to Galaxy International with years of experience in the aviation industry, many with International airlines, including in Saudi Arabia. Nabil says, “Our customers are both domestic and global.We knew that certifying to AS9110 would allow us to increase our offerings to our current customers as well as bring on new customers.” AS9110 is the standard for repair stations and is based on AS9100 but adds specific requirements that are critical for the maintenance of commercial, private, and military aircrafts.This standard is intended for use by organizations whose primary business is providing maintenance or continuing airworthiness management services for civil or military aviation articles and products and by original equipment manufacturers with maintenance, repair, and overhaul operations that are operated autonomously. Nabil and Joe agree that the process to certify to AS9110 is more complex than the process to certify as an FAA 145 Repair Station. “That being said, through Bretta and Debbie at BMSC, we went from start to finish (certification) in ~2 months”, he adds. Joe says, “I think this was one of the quickest AS9110 certifications that BMSC ever did!” Nabil says, “Bretta and Debbie did an outstanding job as our AS9110 consultants. Joe and I would recommend them to anybody – they are both flexible and hardworking. It is very common to receive emails from them at 9 pm.” Joe adds, “They are extremely devoted to their customers, and they are incredibly knowledgeable about certification, particularly for small businesses like ours. They have a gift of making it less complex and they work to take the processes we have in place and work from there.” To learn more about how Galaxy International can help your business, contact them at: (623) 882-2783 or visit Galaxyinternational.com Are You Ready To Implement ISO 9001:2015, AS9100D, AS9110C or AS9120B or simplify your current Quality Management System?

Manufacturing Is Critical to Economic Rebound The U.S. manufacturing sector has established itself as the backbone of economic stability and renewal amid times of crisis or downturn. It is important that candidates in this election, regardless of political affiliation, understand that a strong economic recovery is reliant on a durable manufacturing industry. In spite of the business disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic earlier in the year, the future for manufacturing looks bright. According to the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) third quarter 2020 outlook survey, 66% of manufacturer respondents are positive about their own company’s outlook, expecting sales, employment, production growth rate, wages and more to increase at varying levels over the next year. With this in mind, what is needed to accelerate the role of manufacturing in the renewal of the U.S. economy? First, the United States needs to invest in and modernize its transportation and infrastructure systems. The pandemic has placed a spotlight on infrastructure and its critical role to keep supplies moving to meet the needs of Americans across the nation. The current condition of U.S. infrastructure, however, has not kept pace with the growing needs and demand. And, the American Society of Civil Engineers released a report card in 2017 of infrastructure in the country and gave the nation a rating of D+.Without adequate investments, the U.S. is on track to lose 5.8 million jobs by 2040. Investment in a modern infrastructure system has proven ties to job creation and economic stability, demonstrating its importance to both manufacturers and all Americans alike. This needs to be a top priority for candidates in this election as manufacturers are looking for elected leaders to make it happen. Candidates must also support programs that help to increase and diversify the talent pipeline needed to sustain the evolving manufacturing landscape.A study by Deloitte andThe Manufacturing Institute found that manufacturers will need to hire 4.6 million workers by 2028 and that 2.4 million of those jobs could go unfilled if appropriate steps aren’t taken now to prepare more workers for the next generation of jobs. At PPG, we know that the manufacturing of tomorrow starts with the students and workforce of today. Within the walls of our manufacturing facilities, offices and research and development sites, employees are at the helm of innovation, pushing the boundaries of what is possible with paints and coatings.When it comes to emerging technologies, our employees are discovering new

ways to utilize advanced tools that are creating nextgeneration advanced manufacturing processes. In order to remain competitive in a global marketplace, manufacturers also need their elected officials to see immigration reform as essential to U.S. competitiveness worldwide and a pathway for developing diverse talent in the manufacturing sector. Candidates must address how employment-based visa categories can better represent a range of employment needs. In many cases, the number of applications received from employers far exceed the number of visas available each year. Updating such policies eliminates barriers to retaining qualified applicants while enabling the U.S. to remain competitive. Finally, candidates must recognize the importance of continuing to advance permanent progrowth provisions in the tax code and continual assessment of competitiveness of the U.S. tax system. With the NAM reporting that two-thirds of its members would need to consider reducing investments in the U.S. if tax reform were rolled back, a commitment to tax reform ensures manufacturers have the opportunity to continue to pay forward the benefits. With the right investments and focus, it will be America’s manufacturers who lead us forward in this historical moment in time. McGarry is the chairman and CEO of Pittsburghbased PPG, a leading global manufacturer of paints, coatings and specialty materials. A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

THE LARGEST LYNX HAS LANDED The Lynx 2600SY goes bigger while keeping the same great features. Our customers told us, so we listened: “Keep all the good things from the Lynx 2100LSYB, but just make it a little bigger.” Roger that. Introducing the Lynx 2600SY. Same fast linear cross roller guideways, same machining capability for aggressive cuts and enough size so you don’t have to jump up to the PUMA Series if you don’t need to. The Lynx family is bigger and better than ever.
