Editors Corner “Humans are underrated and excessive automation at Tesla was a mistake”, tweet from Elon Musk in 2018 Our future could look like this. We will depend upon robots to grow our food, make our goods, care for our elderly and grow the global economy, predict researchers, economists, and engineers. The total population of industrial robots is estimated at greater than 3.5 million, and more than one half million were installed just last year, says the International Federation of Robotics. Last year’s installations set a record, exceeding the previous best year that occurred in 2018.

The Wall Street Journal says, “Even one-time skeptics have come around. Now that Elon Musk is running a much bigger company at a time of unprecedented labor shortfalls, he has jumped on the autonomously driven bandwagon with gusto.”

Card Gallery................................... 73-93

Last month, Musk unveiled an early prototype of a humanoid robot called Optimus that Tesla plans to eventually sell for less than $20,000 and that the company plans to use in car production. Musk said, “It will, I think, turn the whole notion of what an economy looks like on its head, at the point at which you will have no shortage of labor.”

Published by: A2Z Manufacturing

The Wall Street Journal says that the convergence of three forces is driving the robot renaissance. 1) Demographic trends in developed countries mean there aren’t enough workers, particularly because of the aging workforce. 2) Robots have become more capable, more quickly than at any other time since their earliest adoption by the automotive industry in the middle of the 20th century. Robert Playter of Hyundai Motor Group elaborates, “This new generation of robots has mobility and vision and is capable of flexibility in their behavior that simply hasn’t been possible with Industrial robots used in manufacturing in the past decades.” 3) Surging human labor costs coupled with more capable robots means the time it takes to train a new robot and for the robot to pay for itself is shrinking, according to expert Dr Huang of Bernstein. Though it is quite common to hear from employees that robots will take over their jobs, history shows that while automation typically takes over some of the tasks performed by humans, over time, companies shift workers into different types of jobs, and often these jobs are more interesting and challenging. If you have been in the market for or recently purchased new CNC machine tools, undoubtedly your salesperson shared options that will increase your machine tool’s automation capabilities. Whether you are adding gantry or pallet systems, or integrating robots with your CNC machines, you are giving your business the opportunity to grow despite the shrinking workforce. One machine tool dealer said to me, “I believe if a shop doesn’t begin to adopt automation today, they won’t be in business in 10 years.” Until next issue, I wish you the best, and as always, God Bless our Troops, our healthcare providers and our First Responders.

A total of 47 of the students received grant funding for the Technology Level 1 (MT1) certification program and 15 received funding for the Mechatronics Technology program at WNC. Both programs help Tesla employees with training to expand their experience and career knowledge in mechanical technology and engineering. These programs are not specific to Tesla trainings and can be utilized by all individuals in this workforce area. “The MT1 course has helped to provide basic theory knowledge to my Junior technicians so they can understand automation processes and develop methodical troubleshooting methods; while the Mech Tech course has propelled some of our veteran technicians to sharpen their troubleshooting skills and find greater career paths at Tesla,” said Nicholas Schafer, Tesla Production Engineering Supervisor. Marcus Mathis, a SANDI grantee and MT1 certified student, says the MT1 course has had a massive impact on his day-today role at Tesla.“Electrical and mechanical troubleshooting has been one of my natural skills, yet I find myself referring back to class and lab applications when troubleshooting and installing. I would highly recommend this course to anyone A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

that takes what they do seriously and is looking to go beyond the scope of their current position,” said Mathis. “I look forward to building upon these skills in the future with the other programs that are offered through the WNC and Tesla collaboration.” Tesla’s partnership with WNC emphasizes the importance of continued education in Nevada’s workforce and job pipeline. “We understand that providing continued education and supportive resources for our employees directly influences the morale of our team and the future of Tesla,” said Nicholas Schafer, Tesla Production Engineering Supervisor. “We want to see our team members succeed and strive to level-up in their positions and we have seen positive results of this occur directly from the courses offered at WNC.” The plan for the SANDI grant is to invest in 1,700 Nevadans by next fall. The WNC and Tesla partnership is one of the several organizations across the state to receive SANDI grant funding to help those who were adversely affected by the pandemic, modernize Nevada’s workforce system, and expand remote access to short-term training for in-demand occupations using a digital platform.

Spotlight On Arizona As Demand For Critical Minerals Surges The rapid growth of high-tech electronics has ignited a global race to secure the rare metals that comprise them. Demand has surged for materials such as copper, nickel, cobalt and lithium, which are key components in green technologies such as batteries, electric vehicles and solar panels. Similarly, consumer electronics such as cell phones and computer monitors, as well as defense applications like lasers and guidance systems, rely heavily on what’s known as rare earth elements (REE) – 17 metallic elements vital to digital devices. Historically, China has exerted outsized influence over mineral supply chains, including controlling 60% of the world’s production of rare earth elements. A U.S. Department of Defense report from 2021 also notes that China refines 60% of the world’s lithium and 80% of the world’s cobalt, two core inputs to high-capacity batteries. With increasing attention paid to supply chain security, few states carry as much weight as Arizona, which boasts a long history in mining, plentiful mineral resources and a fastA2Z MANUFACTURING SW

expanding industry base. The mining of quartz and other surface minerals by Native Americans in Arizona extends back hundreds of years. By the time Arizona became a state in 1912, its mining industry, which revolved around copper, lead, zinc, silver and gold ore, had grown to a $67 million enterprise – equivalent to more than $1.4 billion today. Arizona continues to be a mineral producing powerhouse. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, Arizona produced more value than any other state in nonfuel minerals last year. Arizona is the leading copper producing state, responsible for 71% of copper output in the U.S. Helping advance and improve mineral production and refinement are the state’s top-ranked research universities. The University of Arizona, which has been educating students in mining and mineral resources since 1885, operates the only underground mining lab with a working vertical shaft in the nation, the San Xavier Underground Mining Laboratory. The laboratory affords students a one-of-a-kind hands-on training experience and is considered a center of excellence in mine health and safety. Continued Next Page

WWW.NORTHSOUTHMACHINERY.COM | (800) 460-9014 | CA • OR • WA • AZ • NV At Arizona State University (ASU) expert researchers are involved in advanced study areas such as developing the thermodynamic information needed for critical mineral production, extracting critical materials from waste streams, and improving smelting and production processes for metals and alloys. In addition, Northern Arizona University has partnered with ASU to reduce air emissions associated with mining techniques. The universities are developing an air-capture system that would collect carbon dioxide emissions and convert them into a wide range of energy-dense fuels, fuel feedstocks or fine chemicals. Arizona’s extensive history with mining is complemented today by one of the nation’s fastest growing technology ecosystems. Advanced industries such as semiconductors, electric vehicles, batteries, aerospace and defense, renewable energy and more are flourishing. “The technology supply chain is fueled by a multitude of factors, one of the most important being the raw material supply managed by the mining industry,” said Steven G. Zylstra, president and CEO of the Arizona Technology Council and SciTech Institute. The Fraser Institute, a leading Canadian think tank, ranks Arizona a top-five region globally on its 2022 Investment Attractiveness Index, which considers policy factors such as regulatory climate, taxation levels and infrastructure as well as mineral potential.

In addition, the state sits in close proximity to roughly half a dozen large scale lithium extraction projects. These projects include the Big Sandy Project, Lordsburg Lithium Project, Imperial Valley - Lithium Valley, Clayton Valley Project and Thacker Pass Project. These projects are attracting innovators such as Arizona Lithium, which is developing the Big Sandy lithium project in northern Arizona. The company announced in July the signing of a 104,000-square-foot Lithium Research Center in Tempe, which will focus on lithium extraction and production for battery cell technology, creating more than 300 jobs. These investments represent the tip of the iceberg of what may be to come. The Department of Defense estimates that for the world to keep track with stated climate goals, demand for lithium would need to grow by 4,000% over the next 25 years. Arizona’s mining past is long and storied. Its future may be even brighter. By Arizona Commerce Authority A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

Atlis Motors Says Australian Company Places Order For EV Charging Stations Atlis Motor Vehicles, the Mesa-based electric vehicle maker, said that it has received an order from Australia-based AUSEV for 270 of the company’s 1.5 MW charging stations. Atlis said in an announcement that the latest deal follows AUSEV’s original order of the company’s 19,000 XT electric pickup trucks that was signed in early August. Atlis has yet to produce any end-product versions of those trucks. The order is an “extremely important milestone for Atlis as it underscores the confidence AUSEV has already placed in the company fulfilling the initial order for 19,000 XT vehicles,” said Atlis CEO Mark Hanchett in a statement. “It is also a meaningful fundamental event for our current shareholders and prospective investors as we maintain and expand our development trajectory as a publicly traded company. These two foundational orders from AUSEV demonstrate our commitment to scaling up production and AUSEV’s growing faith in Atlis. We are grateful for our continued collaboration with AUSEV and expect to extend the AUSEV collaborative and distribution model to other territories.” Brendan Kenny, head of operations at AUSEV, said in a statement that “Atlis A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

is focused on providing work trucks with a long range and fast charge time, which is perfectly suited for the Australian market. These charging stations are a natural progression to build on our original order.” AMV, which bills itself as an electric vehicle ecosystem, plans to build electric pickup trucks, batteries and charging stations. The company has yet to generate revenue, according to a quarterly filing posted Sept. 27, and all its products are still in development. The company first showed off a prototype of the XT vehicle in 2021. The company has said in a filing earlier this year that it would deliver battery cells by the end of this year but would not deliver any vehicles until after 2024. AMV, which employs about 70 people, reported in the filing that it had just over $683,000 in cash on hand at the end of June, down from $3.1 million at the start of the year. The company also reported raising $8.88 million in the first half of 2022 via its Regulation A+ crowdfunding campaign leading up to its Sept. 27 public listing on the Nasdaq, but ran a net loss of more than $36 million through the first half of the year. AMV’s biggest expense this year, by far, was stock based compensation, which exceeded $24 million through the end of June. Atlis said it received a deposit for production of two XP platforms (basically the vehicle platform without a chassis) during the second quarter, which would be delivered “at a later date.” AMV said it expects to incur a loss on these two platforms and on all future production, until it can scale manufacturing and raise additional capital.

also known as "Project Oasis," is proposing to build a new electronic grade chemical manufacturing facility in the Central Arizona Commerce Park on about 34 acres at the southwest corner of Ash Avenue and Burris Road just north of the Lucid Motors campus.

proposing to build a 140,000-squarefoot manufacturing facility adjacent to Jomi U.S. Inc. along Ash Avenue near Florence Street.

The site is located at 29 S. Commerce Drive and will supply the semiconductor industry with high-quality electronic grade isopropyl alcohol, a city report said. LCY, which supplies chemicals to Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., Intel and Micron, was one of the first suppliers to announce its plans to follow TSMC to Arizona. It purchased 34 acres near Burris Road and Gila Bend Highway for $5.5 million.

The light manufacturing building will be developed on nearly 20 acres for the production of metal components or primarily venting for air conditioning units.

The multi-building facility is also expected to include truck and rail service, administration and operations buildings, distillation units, water treatment and storage, wastewater pretreatment processes, fire water systems, an electrical substation and materials storage tank areas. The city's planning commission will also vote to approve a resolution, which will grant a conditional use permit for a chemical production facility involving the "storage, utilization, or manufacture of volatile or explosive materials or products." The growth of the semiconductor supply chain has driven industrial sector expansion in Pinal County and north Phoenix in recent years following the announcement of the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. plant. Intel Corp. has also driven investment in the Valley's semiconductor industry since the 1980s. Separately, Philadelphia-based Southwark Metal Manufacturing Co. is also

A city report said that two sites adjacent to the property are in review or discussion for additional light manufacturing uses, while north of the property is expected to see more housing to support the growing industrial sector in the city. The site has existing water, wastewater and electric services and no additional utility service is proposed, city documents said. Site plans for the project show the building could expand by an additional 140,000 square feet. Real estate database Vizzda shows that Southwark purchased the 18.5 acres for $1.8 million in June from Brown Homes. By Audrey Jensen – Reporter, Phoenix Business Journal A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

Ecube, which has facilities in Wales and in Spain, announced this month it started its operations in Coolidge — making it the only aircraft endof-life solutions company that operates in both Europe and North America. The company said its expansion was driven by customer demand and an expectation that the retirement of both narrow-body and wide-body aircraft will increase at the end of 2022 and into 2023. “We underwent an extensive exercise over the past 12 months in speaking with A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

and listening to our customers to understand the optimal location for asset owners of EOL aircraft, this inevitably resulted in Ecube planting its flag at a new location in Arizona,” Lee McConnellogue, Ecube’s CEO said. “At the forefront of our U.S. expansion plans is consistency of service, ensuring we replicate the experience our customers have learned to enjoy and rely on at our UK and EU facilities. We also plan to elevate the importance of our industry’s circular economy within the region, focusing on quality aircraft teardowns delivered with expertise and experience.” Ecube looked at several sites before landing on Coolidge. The company told the Coolidge City Council this summer it considered six total sites — four in Arizona and two in New Mexico. The company was looking for sites that accepted all types of aircraft, had dry climates and had "favorable" sales tax for customers.

Coolidge and Ecube signed a 10-year lease on 6.82 acres near the airport over the summer. The company will pay a base rent of $3,702.6 per month, plus other fees for fuel and aircraft parking, according to city of Coolidge documents. Ecube estimates that it’ll have revenue between $2 million and $3 million during its first year in Coolidge and expects that to grow every year — up to more than $7.5 million in 2028. Ecube has already brought in an aircraft – a Boeing 737-700 – it will dismantle at the Coolidge site. The company estimated that in its first year it’ll disassemble 15 to 20 aircraft and increase that number every year. Ecube told Coolidge leadership it will employ 15 to 25 employees in its first year and by year five, its workforce will grow to more than 75 employees. Ecube said its average annual wage will be $40,000 to $55,000. By Brandon Brown – Phoenix Business Journal

Intel initially thought a Mobileye IPO could value the business unit at $50 billion, but as the IPO market has faltered this year those expectations were cut to about $30 billion, according to Bloomberg. The parties have not indicated how many Mobileye shares will be sold or at what price. Intel bought Mobileye, which at the time was a public company, for $15.3 billion in 2017. The move seen as the company finally jumping into the autonomous vehicle race. Last year, Mobileye had revenue of $1.4 billion. That compares with $967 million revenue in 2020 and $879 million revenue in 2019. For the first half of this year revenue was $854 million, up 21% compared to the same period a year ago. The business unit is not profitable but it has been narrowing its losses. It lost $75 million last year. In 2020 it lost $196 million and in 2019 it lost $328 million.

In the just-completed period, the California-based company made 2,282 vehicles at its Arizona factory in Pinal County, it said in an announcement. That was more that triple the number it produced in the second quarter, the company said.

"In our time with Intel, we accelerated development of important new technologies," wrote Mobileye founder and CEO Amnon Shashua. "We also tapped Intel engineering resources to build software development kits that help facilitate better design-in with our automotive customers, which in turn helped us to win more customers."

The automaker delivered 1,398 vehicles in the third quarter, compared to 679 in the second.

Mobileye’s technology is used in autonomous driving as well as in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (the technology behind elements like adaptive cruise control, collision warnings, lane keeping and evasive steering). Roughly 800 vehicle models are incorporating the company’s chips, more than 50 manufacturers are adopting the systems and 8.6 billion miles of road data has been collected, according to the filing.

In August, Lucid announced a sharply reduced production goal of about 50%. With Lucid’s production results for the most recent period at its Casa Grande production facility, it’s on track to meet its reduced goal of 6,000 to 7,000 cars this year, it said. Through the first three quarters of this year, it’s made 3,687 vehicles, so it would have to increase production to 2,313 cars in the current quarter to meet the low end of its targeted range.

Honeywell Aerospace Wins Contract To Provide Engines For UK Military Helicopters Honeywell Aerospace has signed a contract to supply 34 of the company’s workhorse T55 engines for the United Kingdom military. The contract, awarded through the U.S. Army Foreign Military Sales office, will build the latest model of the Honeywell T55-GA-714A engine for the U.K. Ministry of Defence’s fleet of H-47 Extended Range Chinook helicopters. “We have a long-standing relationship with the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence and we appreciate the opportunity to continue supporting them on their new H-47 Extended Range Chinook Helicopter with our latest T55GA-714A engine configuration,” said Dave Marinick, president, Engines and Power Systems. “The latest contract to supply 34 T55 engines is a testament to the U.K. MOD’s confidence in our battle-proven engines. To date, our T55 engines have logged some 12 million hours of operation on the Boeing CH47 and MH-47 Chinook helicopters.” T55 engines have been in use and evolving since 1961, and the model going to the British military allows Chinooks to travel up to 170 knots with shaft horsepower as high as 5,000. Honeywell said that more than 900 military and civil CH-47 helicopters powered by T55s are in use around the world. In 2021, Honeywell signed a four-year, $476 million contract for new A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

production and spare T55-GA-714A engines for the helicopters. Honeywell is currently working on development of advanced models of the T55 engine, including the 714C model, which uses 8% less fuel than the current version and boosts shaft horsepower to 6,000. Honeywell is also working on the engine for what could become the U.S. Army’s next-generation aircraft, known as the Future Long-Range Assault Aircraft (FLRAA). Earlier this year, Lockheed Martin Sikorsky-Boeing picked Honeywell’s HTS7500 turboshaft engine for its Defiant X helicopter, which project officials say can fly twice as fast and twice as far as the Black Hawk. Each one of the ‘copters would employ two of the Honeywell engines.Work on the project could result in hundreds of new engineering and supply chain jobs in Arizona, with an estimated $6.6 billion impact on the state, Honeywell has said.By Jeff Gifford – Phoenix Business Journal Continued Page 40

Albuquerque VisionQuest Biomedical Lands $1M NIH Grant To Drive Commercialization

SmartAdHalfPageA2ZJuly2022.indd 1

A disease-detecting device under development at VisionQuest Biomedical Inc. is on the fast track for commercialization thanks to a $1 million federal grant. VisionQuest’s CEO, Peter Soliz, Ph.D., is developing a commercial prototype of a biomedical device called i-RxTherm. The device, once FDA-approved, would be used to detect a degenerative nerve damage condition in people with diabetes — called diabetic peripheral neuropathy — in its early stages. The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases — part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) — awarded Albuquerque-based VisionQuest the grant. In addition to putting together the commercial prototype, VisionQuest will also use the grant money to gather data for FDA approval. VisionQuest plans to have the commercial prototype ready in six months and apply for FDA approval within 12 months, said Sarah Soliz, director of strategic communications for VisionQuest. Securing FDA approval would mark the first step toward commercialization for the i-RxTherm device, she added. Peter Soliz founded VisionQuest Biomedical in 2007 with goal of simplifying the early diagnosis of diseases using artificial intelligence technology. The new i-RxTherm marks A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

TWO LOCATIONS NOW...SAME PRINCIPLES... EXTENSIVE SELECTION AND EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE “I would estimate 50% of our business originates through Jill’s marketing initiatives”, says Doug Cone, referencing his partner Jill Cone’s efforts. It is a beautiful partnership at AZ Metals, where Doug and Jill each bring unique skills that help to create a winning business. The 2 have a combined half century of experience in the industry. Doug is the eter nal optimist, Jill says, while she is much more pragmatic, and these distinct personality types are equally beneficial in running a small business. Also, their experience and skills are divergent yet complimentary. Doug has been in the metals service center industry for several decades, and over the course of his employment, he learned every aspect of how to operate a metals service center, including running fabrication equipment. Jill, by degree a RN, is a self-taught marketing expert (including digital and social media), and she not only spearheads all of the company’s marketing initiatives, but she is also extremely active in business and industry network associations. Just last year, she was named ‘No. 1 U.S. Mentor’ Among 90,000+ Nominees In Alignable’s First National Main Street Mentors Search. The award recognized business leaders who’ve gone above and beyond guiding peers, Main Street economies, and entire communities toward recovery from the pandemic. She has also twice been awarded ‘Small Businessperson of the Year’ for the city of Mesa through Alignable, and today she is Co-Ambassador of the Alliance of Phoenix Metro. AZ Metals, established more than a decade ago, in 2011, is pleased to announce that it has expanded into New Mexico, with the launch of New Mexico Metals in Albuquerque. Doug and Jill launched AZ Metals after completing a 10-year metal franchise agreement where they felt there were gaping holes in the system that hindered growth. “We learned a few things that worked, but felt there were gaps in the system where the consistent growth was hindered. Doug worked in a large steel flat rolled company for 18 years prior, where growth was critical and knew there had to be a way to create consistent growth through diversification.” Jill states and adds, “Our first location, AZ Metals, A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

• 42 • Nov / Dec 2022

in Mesa, Arizona offers the following diversifying factors that I believe are instrumental in our growth and that we are today making part of our sister company, New Mexico Metals: * We are extremely diversified in our customer base, and we proudly service both retail and business customers. While other metals service centers reluctantly support DIY walk-in and other retail customers, we welcome all to our facilities. * We continuously expand our processing capabilities to get our customers closer to a finished product. Today, we offer in-house production shearing, sawing, hole punching, bending, drilling and notching at both locations and MIG/TIG welding, sheet rolling, radius notching, tube rolling services as well as custom fabrication. * We are open 6 days a week, including half days on Saturday * We carry a large variety of metals in all shapes, including steel (hot and cold rolled, alloy and tool), diamond plate, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, bronze, brass, titanium, exotic alloys and more. * We offer convenient delivery or shop and go.” Doug adds, “When a customer needs a 13’ piece of metal from the original 20’ piece, we will cut it to size

and the customer only pays for the 13’ piece. There is no better place to shop for metal when you are developing prototypes, when you are a large company in need of maintenance parts, when you need a small quantity of metal fast to finish, or when you are a ‘DiY’ person. For the DiY, you won’t find pricing as competitive as ours at home improvement stores, big box stores and hardware stores.” The company was recently invited to become a member of The Metals Service Center Institute (MSCI), the broadest-based, not-forprofit association serving the industrial metals industry and were quickly voted onto the Board for the Southwest Chapter. Doug says that this was a significant milestone, as MSCI is an exclusive association that requires metals service businesses to reach a revenue/profitability threshold before they are able to join. Doug says that the ‘Plug and Play’ business model he and Jill have developed and honed over the years precipitated their decision to add a second metals service center to their business. “We continue to demonstrate that our business model at AZ Metals is one customers want, and we will mirror both the services and the customer support at New Mexico Metals.” Further geographic expansion is in the Cone’s plans. New Mexico Metals opened for business in their 5200 square foot facility just months ago, and it already has several 5 star reviews on Google. Doug says, “Our location at 5821 Midway Park Blvd NE # F, in Albuquerque, is a convenient industrial location for our customers throughout New Mexico, and our customers really appreciate that we are open for business on Saturdays.” Jill says,” We offer such a wide variety of materials, including brass, bronze, copper, steel, aluminum, alloy, tools, etc. We are proud of our product range where we offer almost 19,000-line items for your every need.” She adds, “In fact, in one of our 5 star reviews, the customer noted that we were “The only place local I’ve found DOM (Drawn Over Mandrel) tubing!” She adds,” Everyone is welcome to call for a free quote or stop in and see our REMNANT and FIRE SALE racks in Mesa for deep discounts! Hours are 8 AM – 5 PM Monday – Friday, and 9 AM – Noon on Saturdays. We hope to become you go-to metal supplier in Albuquerque!” To learn more about New Mexico Metals, call (505) 7171900 or visit: newmexico-metals.com.

points lower than the 52.8 percent recorded in August. This figure indicates expansion in the overall economy for the 28th month in a row after contraction in April and May 2020. The Manufacturing PMI® figure is the lowest since May 2020, when it registered 43.5 percent. The New Orders Index returned to contraction territory at 47.1 percent, 4.2 percentage points lower than the 51.3 percent recorded in August. The Production Index reading of 50.6 percent is a 0.2-percentage point increase compared to August’s figure of 50.4 percent. The Prices Index registered 51.7 percent, down 0.8 percentage point compared to the August figure of 52.5 percent. This is the index’s lowest reading since June 2020 (51.3 percent). The Backlog of Orders Index registered 50.9 percent, 2.1 percentage points lower than the August reading of 53 percent. After a single month of expansion, the Employment Index contracted at 48.7 percent, 5.5 percentage points lower than the 54.2 percent recorded in August. The Supplier Deliveries Index reading of 52.4 percent is 2.7 percentage points lower than the August figure of 55.1 percent.

Fiore continues, “The U.S. manufacturing sector continues to expand, but at the lowest rate since the pandemic recovery began. Following four straight months of panelists’ companies reporting softening new orders rates, the September index reading reflects companies adjusting to potential future lower demand. Demand eased, with the (1) New Orders Index returning to contraction, (2) New Export Orders Index in contraction for a second consecutive month, (3) Customers’ Inventories Index remaining at a low level but as close as it’s been to an ‘about right’ reading since early in the pandemic and (4) Backlog of Orders Index approaching contraction. Consumption (measured by the Production and Employment indexes) declined during the period, with a combined negative 5.3-percentage point impact on the Manufacturing PMI® calculation. The Employment Index returned to contraction after one month of expansion, and the Production Index increased by 0.2 percentage point, staying in growth territory, but at a modest level.”

“Of the six biggest manufacturing industries, four — Machinery; Transportation Equipment; Food, Beverage & Tobacco Products; and Computer & Electronic Products — registered moderate-to-strong growth in September.

“Manufacturing expanded for the 28th straight month. Panelists’ companies slowed hiring activity; month-over-month supplier delivery performance was the best since December 2019; prices growth slowed notably (with the index at 60 percent or lower) for the third consecutive month; and lead times continue to ease for capital equipment and production materials. Markedly absent from panelists’ comments was any large-scale mentioning of layoffs; this indicates companies are confident of near-term demand, so primary goals are managing medium-term head counts and supply chain inventories,” says Fiore.

Honeywell Aerospace Providing Component For B-52 Bomber’s Upgrade Honeywell’s Phoenix-based aerospace division announced it has been selected by Boeing to provide a key component on the U.S. Air Force’s long-range B-52 bomber as the aircraft is upgraded for a future generation. The deal, which is part of the Commercial Engine Replacement Program, or CERP, calls for Honeywell to provide its 36-150 auxiliary power unit (APU), which provides high-pressure air to start the aircraft’s main jet engines before departure. The iconic B-52 is undergoing an upgrade under a $2.6 billion CERP contract with Rolls-Royce North America to replace the bomber’s aging Pratt & Whitney-made TF33 engines, according to a report earlier this year from National Defense. Each of the Air Force’s 76 B-52’s Stratofortress bombers will get eight new engines by 2038, the report said. Honeywell said the new component enhances mission readiness and flexibility by allowing the upgraded B-52 to meet operational quick-start requirements without the use of ground support equipment. “The B-52 is one of the most enduring USAF aircraft ensuring force readiness against emerging threats,” said Dave Marinick, president, Engines and A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

• 46 • Nov / Dec 2022

Power Systems, Honeywell Aerospace. “We are confident that our proven 36-150 APU will exceed the expectations of the USAF throughout the CERP contract and subsequent B-52 active-duty squadron service that will last until at least 2050. ” The company’s 36-150 APU series is in use in more than 20 commercial and military applications already, with more than 10,000 of the units delivered, Honeywell said. The same APU is also in use as part of Honeywell’s collaboration in the Lockheed Martin Sikorsky-Boeing DEFIANT X helicopter program, which is in contention to be selected as the U.S. Army’s Future Long Range Assault Aircraft, or FLRAA, which would replace the Black Hawk helicopter. Work on the project could result in hundreds of new engineering and supply chain jobs in Arizona, with an estimated $6.6 billion impact on the state, Honeywell has said.

US Trade Deficit Narrows in August on Further Imports Drop Higher interest rates have strengthened t h e U . S . d o l l a r, making American goods relatively more expensive, which could trim exports, but so far the data are likely to boost growth in the world’s largest economy. The U.S. trade gap declined for a fifth straight month in August as imports, including oil, fell further, according to official data released last month. Exports edged down as well on decreases in industrial supplies and materials, the Commerce Department said. The overall trade deficit dropped $3.1 billion to $67.4 billion in August, the data showed, slightly more than expected. In recent months, companies have rushed to replenish depleted inventories to meet strong demand from U.S. consumers.But soaring inflation has raised concerns that shoppers will pull back, causing firms to become more cautious.

"Metalformers continue to expect fairly steady business conditions in the last quarter of the year," association president David Klotz said in a news release. "Our members anticipate little change in current economic activity and shipping levels seem to be steadying after declining the last several months. What is striking is that the report shows that more than six in 10 members are expanding their workforce and trying to find workers to fill these jobs." A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

Just 2% of companies had employees on short time or layoff in this month’s report, compared to 4% in August. And 67% were trying to grow their workforce, a small increase from August’s 65%. Notably, those figures are low compared to the past year — August was the first time since March of 2021 that less than 70% of businesses surveyed said they were trying to add employees.

DuPont Acquisition Of Chandler Company Still Awaits Approval From China The planned $5 billion buyout deal of Chandler-based Rogers Corp. by chemicals giant DuPont de Nemours Inc., which has already faced several regulatory hurdles that have delayed the deal, now faces another snag while it awaits approval from China. DuPont (NYSE: DD) and Rogers (NYSE: ROG) had previously announced the deal back on Nov. 2, 2021, through which Wilmington, Delaware-based DuPont would acquired Rogers for $277 per share in an all-cash deal, that at the time was expected to close by the end of June of this year. The latest delay comes while awaiting approval from the State Administration for Market Regulation of China (SAMR). In a Sept. 30 regulatory filing, DuPont noted that “at the request of SAMR, DuPont recently withdrew and refiled with SAMR the notice of the parties’ planned merger. The parties continue to hold

cooperative discussions with SAMR with the aim of securing regulatory approval of the planned merger. The parties continue to seek to close the merger as soon as possible, subject to regulatory approval by SAMR and the satisfaction of other customary closing conditions set forth in the merger agreement.” Rogers is one of Arizona’s largest public companies with more than 3,500 employees worldwide and a network of 14 manufacturing sites in North America, Europe and Asia — including China. Rogers produces specialty engineered materials, such as liquid cooling substances, used in wireless telecom networks, electric vehicles and in renewable and clean energy products. DuPont had launched the buyout bid for Rogers in order to be able to tap into these emerging markets. It’s DuPont’s biggest proposed buyout since it split from DowDuPont. Rogers’ shareholders approved the merger at a special shareholder meeting on Jan. 25. “The combination of Rogers and DuPont’s electronics and industrial business will provide compelling benefits to our customers and employees as together we leverage our strengths in innovation and advanced materials to bring new solutions to rapidly growing end markets such as electric and hybrid electric vehicles,” Bruce Hoechner, Rogers’ president


and CEO, said in a statement after the vote. Rogers sees growth despite China, inflation pressures Following the closing of the transaction, Rogers will be integrated into DuPont’s Electronics & Industrial business unit. Rogers’ 2021 revenue was about $950 million. For this year’s second quarter, the company reported net income of $17.9 million, or 94 cents a share, on revenue of $252 million, with non-GAAP earnings of $1.22 a share. “Supply challenges and Covid-related demand disruptions in China tempered further sales growth and impacted gross margins. Inflationary pressures continued in Q2, but our commercial actions are mitigating rising raw material input costs,” Hoechner said in a regulatory fi ling on Aug. 3 when the results were released. “Longerterm, we continue to be very encouraged by the outlook for our growth markets, especially in the [electric/hybrid vehicle] space, where demand remains robust and our investments to capitalize on the long-term growth opportunity are on track.” By Greg Barr – Editor in Chief, Phoenix Business Journal A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

Electric Vehicle Maker Acquires Large Site In West Valley Arizona-based vehicle maker Nikola Corp. quietly p u rc h a s e d n e a r l y 1,000 acres in the Phoenix metro at the end of September for $16.5 million, according to Maricopa County records. Nikola acquired the 920-acre site through Phoenix Hydrogen Hub LLC from Hardison Farms on Sept. 30, real estate database Vizzda shows. George Quinif of Peak Group LLC represented Nikola in the sale. The massive site is located at 28702 W. Patterson Road in south Buckeye just west of State Route 85 near the Arizona Department of Corrections Lewis Prison, which is one of the largest prisons in the state and houses more than 4,400 inmates. The sale comes after Nikola made multiple announcements that it planned to break ground on a hydrogen production hub in Arizona. The company’s CEO said in August that Nikola would start construction on the new facility by the end of this year but did not disclose the location. A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

• 52 • Nov / Dec 2022

According to the Arizona Corporation Commission, Corey Hessen and Omar Khayum, senior vice president and vice president of Canada-based TC Energy, respectively, are the managers of Phoenix Hydrogen Hub LLC. Oil and gas giant TC Energy partnered with Nikola last year to develop large-scale hydrogen production hubs across the U.S. and Canada. Nikola hasn’t confirmed, though, whether it plans to build a hydrogen production hub in Buckeye. Nikola said it has no comment about the Buckeye land sale or its plans for the property. The city of Buckeye said nothing has progressed with the company beyond negotiations. The automaker is currently producing battery electric vehicles and has produced several alpha prototypes of its fuel cell electric vehicles, which run on hydrogen. Nikola is planning to build out a hydrogen fueling network to support its vehicles. Its first three locations will be established in California. In addition to the fueling stations, the

company said it was creating a hydrogen production hub in Arizona. The FCEV trucks are expected to be available next year. The U.S. Department of Energy said FCEVs and the hydrogen infrastructure to fuel them are in the early stages of implementation. Truck manufacturers are also looking to hydrogen fuel cells to replace diesel engines for long distance travel. Nikola originally a n n o u n c e d plans in 2018 to build its vehicle manufacturing plant at a different site in Buckeye but chose Coolidge instead because of available infrastructure and wanting to build and start operations quickly. Nikola is one o f s e v e r a l l a rg e manufacturers that has a large p re s e n c e i n t h e state and wants to build out its supply chain in Pinal County and Arizona. At a recent panel, Britton Worthen, a chief legal officer for Nikola, said it is continuing discussions to bring partners in and colocate them near their plant.

are 100% DN Solutions (formerly Doosan) machines, and they are ideal for the rigidity that our customers’ parts require today.” He adds, “W ith our space constraints in one section of our milling department, our new DN Solutions milling machines have much smaller footprints than our older machines.” Long term employee and key management team member Ron Sheaters, says, “One of our key new DN Solutions additions is the PUMA 4100LMB, which is a high-performance lathe with milling capabilities. This horizonal machining center has the following key attributes: • It enables us to machine precision parts with larger turning diameters, up to 22”. • It offers a programmable steady rest. When the length of a workpiece makes it difficult to machine without distorting or deflecting the part, the steady rest is beneficial as a workpiece support device. This is especially true for long shafts and similar parts used in the heavy equipment and oil & gas industry. • We can now machine parts as long as 79.8”.

Nearly 2 decades into ownership of East Valley Precision (EVP), founder Rob Lyons continues to recognize the importance of and capitalize on new technology. “We buy new machines every year, as we believe that continuous investment is paramount to business growth and improvement.” In just the past 11 months, Rob and the EVP team procured 6 new machines (yes, that is 6 and just after the worst pandemic our country has experienced in this century). “Our new machines not only have enabled us to grow our business with our existing long term customers, but our expanded capabilities will allow us to add customers in industries where large diameter, high precision parts are common, such as the aerospace and mining industries”, Rob adds. Rob says that his machine tool buying has evolved as the business has grown. When the company first opened for business, as is common with new business owners, Rob purchased used machines. Shortly after, EVP migrated to economical general purpose new machine purchases. “Today, our machine tool purchases A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

• 50hp 2,000 rpm spindle with a large 4.5” spindle bore. • Programmable self-centering hydraulic steady rest. • Live tooling for bolt hole circles. Rob adds that one of their longterm semiconductor customers began manufacturing their own equipment. The DN Solutions PUMA 4100LMB is ideal for machining long shafts. “We wouldn’t have been able to make these parts for our customer if we hadn’t invested in the PUMA 4100LMB.”

EVP added the DN Solutions LYNX 2100LMB high performance turning center to its arsenal of equipment, bringing the total number of DN Solutions new machines to 6, all purchased in less than 1 year. Rob says, “As we continue to evolve as a company, our parts increasingly require machines with superior rigidity. DN Solutions’ machines offer this, and they will be our go-to machines as we continue to invest.”

Management employee and previous machine shop owner Tim Milota says, “Another very key machine tool acquisition we made recently is the DN Solutions PUMA V8300M. It is a high performance, heavy duty, vertical mill-drill, and turning system. The vertical design facilitates loading of heavy workpieces, which helps to ensure greater stability and allow for higher spindle speeds.” Tim says that the PUMA V8300M allows EVP to machine parts with large diameters, up to 32.68” and up to 27.17” turning lengths which enables them to hold very tight tolerances (.0002”). He adds, “We can accommodate large parts on the table instead of them hanging off the machine.” Like the PUMA 4100LMB, the PUMA V8300M provides live tooling and great stability when turning. EVP also added 3 new DN Solutions DNM4000 high productivity vertical machining centers to the business, and Rob estimates it has improved their part yield by at least 20% over previous equipment. He adds, “Due to space constraints in our 15,500 square foot facility, the DNM4000’s compact footprint is a valuable benefit to us.”

Both Tim and Ron agree that EVP is a ‘great place to work’. They say the flexibility and the family culture make for a healthy workplace environment. The benefits are also attractive, with EVP offering health, 401K, Health and PTO benefits. “It’s a way to attract high quality candidates”, Rob says. Tim adds “Superior machinists and Programmers will also enjoy working at a company like EVP that invests in the best machines and software to enable machinists to make better parts, faster and more consistently.” The management team encourages skilled machinists to join the EVP organization. Rob says, “I feel comfortable investing in technology because I recognize it is the only way to remain competitive. Further, I want machines and tooling to never be a barrier to customer needs.” To learn more about how EVP can help you with precision machined parts, whether production, R&D parts, or particularly large diameter parts, contact them at: (480) 288-6601 or visit: eastvalleyprecision.com.

Why Arizona's Semiconductor Sector Has Been A Decades-Long Growth Catalyst Intel Corp.'s existing chip fab and $20 billion expansion in Chandler, in addition to Onsemi and Microchip Technology Inc., have helped build up the Valley's semiconductor ecosystem and paved the way to attract TSMC and future suppliers to the Valley, experts say. Intel, which has operated in Arizona since 1979, said it purchases from hundreds of suppliers based in Arizona and the Phoenix region. The semiconductor industry, which first moved into Phoenix around 1950 with Motorola, supports technologies dependent on chips that require a supply chain full of companies involved in design; production; assembly, testing and packaging; integration and consumption. This entire process of a producing a chip can take months and more than 1,000 steps — and cross international borders 70 times — before reaching an end customer, according to the Center for Security and Emerging Technology at Georgetown University. All of these steps also rely on advanced semiconductor manufacturing equipment; materials like chemicals and gases; design software and intellectual property. The complex, $500 billion global semiconductor supply chain is critical to the success of companies like TSMC, which makes 50% of the world's chips and has more than 2,500 direct suppliers and 10,000 indirect suppliers. TSMC, which uses a pure-play foundry model, said the construction of its 5-nanometer fab in Arizona has driven investment from leading suppliers to Arizona. "Some are starting their first U.S. operations in Arizona, and others are expanding their U.S. operations.," Nina Kao, head of TSMC public relations, said in an email. "They bring new strengths to the U.S. semiconductor supply chain and will contribute greatly in ramping up leading-edge chip manufacturing. When our Arizona fab is complete, TSMC’s customers will benefit from having the proximity of a world-class foundry and the supply chain that surrounds this industry." Bob Hess, vice chairman of global strategy for Newmark Inc. and member of the Site Selectors Guild, said that bringing more suppliers and related companies to Arizona, one of a handful of states that's leading in the semiconductor industry, can also benefit existing semiconductor companies in the area."Some of these semiconductor firms, they might look at a different supplier," said Hess, who has worked with well-known clients in the semiconductor industry. "If you're already there in Arizona, you're captive to Intel — that's great that TSMC is in town so you can A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

The new facility also provides additional space for research and development and offices, a sensitive compartmented information facility and 37,000 square feet of high-bay manufacturing space. The company currently employs 300 people across its campus in Sandia Science and Technology Park. The new facility will allow BlueHalo to hire 70 more people. Those new positions will pay an average salary of $90,000, according to the company.



BlueHalo Opens First Dedicated Manufacturing Facility In Albuquerque

U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich (D-NM) spoke prior to the ribbon cutting. He recounted working on early iterations of directed energy technology at what is now known as the Air Force Research Laboratory, just to the west of the Sandia Science and Technology Park. He praised BlueHalo as the latest private industry partner furthering the foundation put in place by the military and the national labs in New Mexico. BlueHalo's expansion comes after the company received approval for a $16 million industrial revenue bond and $2.5 million in Local Economic Development Act incentives from the City of Albuquerque and State of New Mexico. The money helped renovate BlueHalo's new manufacturing facility. Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller said that the expansion shows the city has the space available for companies that want to expand into an area already rich with defense industry research and innovation. Last month, BlueHalo signed a lease to occupy an additional 83,000 square feet at 1300 Eubank Blvd. SE. That puts the company's overall Albuquerque footprint at about 200,000 square feet across three properties in Albuquerque's Sandia Science and Technology Park.

Report: Workforce Development Key To Manufacturing Growth Wilson Perez was in his element, if not his usual workplace, on Tuesday, with an array of jewelrymaking tools in front of him. Perez, a craftsman and stone setter at the New York-based Tiffany & Co.’s Cumberland manufacturing facility, got his start with the company 24 years ago, originally learning how to polish jewelry. As time went on, “I worked my way up, learned new skills, and when I got to the diamond portion [I] decided to stop there,” Perez said. Perez brought his work and tools to Farm Fresh Rhode Island to meet with fellow manufacturers and educate students on his career path at a Manufacturing Month kick-off hosted by Polaris MEP and the Rhode Island Manufacturers Association. The event included the release of the organizers’ “State of Rhode Island Manufacturing” report, and visits from about 500 local high A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

school students. Though manufacturers such as Tiffany were eager to introduce students to a potential career in manufacturing, the purpose wasn’t entirely celebratory: The manufacturers gathered in part to address one o f t h e r e p o r t ’s k e y recommendations: cultivating the nextgeneration workforce. About 65% of the 150-plus companies surveyed reported that availability of skilled labor is their biggest limiting factor in growth, followed by talent development/upskilling and finding new customers. It’s an issue that stands out for Cumberlandbased Swissline Precision LLC, said company President Mike Chenevert. The company set up a booth “to try to expand the knowledge, show people what

There are a lot of jobs you can do around here.” The report also highlighted leveraging regional resources and accelerating growth and innovation as two areas the state must prioritize to support manufacturers. The manufacturing sector represents 9.1% of the state’s GDP, according to the report, at $5.6 billion, and employs almost 40,000 people, or about 8.5% of the workforce. The bulk of these manufacturers are small businesses, the report found, with 86.5% employing fewer than 50 workers. Though the workforce’s sector took a hit early in the pandemic, with more than 2,500 jobs lost from Q4 2019 to Q3 of 2020. the industry “surged back,” the report states, with manufacturing representing the second-largest number of all jobs from August 2020 to August 2021. The state’s top manufacturing-related cluster was boat building and repairing, which represents 5,111 jobs, followed by precious metals, at 2,826 jobs. Quality of life, proximity to family or heritage and proximity to customers are the top three draws among manufacturers to doing business in Rhode Island, while skilled workforce, access to major markets and proximity to supply chain lagged, in descending order. But several state policies limit growth, according to respondents, who also

identified business-friendly policies as their preferred focus area for Rhode Island lawmakers. Aside from a shortage of workers with needed skills, manufacturers also feel limited in teaching workers new skills and finding new customers, with some also pointing to increasing business cost from regulations and business taxes. The state “doesn’t make it easy to do business,” Steve Perry Sr., vice president of Darlington Fabrics, said in the report. “But our proximity allows us to help each other. We have access to our legislators and a great support network.” About 60% of respondents plan to increase wages and salaries in 2022, and about half plan to raise prices. Automation and employee training are also by about 40% of manufacturers, according to the report. Providence Business News; By: Jacquelyn Voghel A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

The SP25M is comprised of two sensors in a single housing. Users can switch between a choice of five scanning modules (styli with lengths from 20 mm to 400 mm) enabling configuration by the user to precisely match the application’s needs. The TM25-20 adaptor module is compatible with Renishaw's TP20 range of probe modules. With the mix of scanning modules and TP20 modules, measurement performance wis optimized, ensuring high accuracy and productivity. Accuracy starting at: (1.7 + 3L/1000) μm


The PH20's infinite positioning guarantees optimal feature access, minimizing stylus changes. The 5-axis simultaneous motion allows larger parts to be measured on the CMM by minizising the space required around the part for head rotation. The PH20 automatically aligns itself with the part co-ordinate system, avoiding stylus collisions. Accuracy starting at: (2.2 + 3L/1000) μm

Jeff grew up in an automotive family, with nearly every relative at one time employed by General Motors, most in Michigan. When his father, a mechanical engineer, was transferred to the Mesa Proving Ground opened by GM, the Westcott family, including Jeff, moved to Arizona.

By his own admission, Jeff wasn’t much for books and so he didn’t follow in his father’s footsteps going to college to become a degreed engineer. Jessica says, “He didn’t like school but he is mechanically gifted, and he learned much about engineering from his father.” Jeff spent nearly 2 decades working for a Toyota dealership here in Arizona, where he often was awarded Top Salesperson in his region. His rankings of 17th, 18th and 9th in some of his last years at the company put him as a top salesperson in a pool of more than 15,000 sales people! © Copyright 2020 | All Rights Reserved | Design by Hangar 8

In his later years working for the dealership, Jeff recommended to his managers that they could increase their revenues if they offered aftermarket parts. Jeff says, “Since it was no effort for them, they allowed me to launch this new venture, and it did so well in its first year that it exceeded $1 million in new revenues.” For Jeff, it introduced him to contacts throughout the industry who manufactured aftermarket products for the Toyota vehicles. It also helped him launch a social media presence, where customers around the US could see on Facebook and Instagram the aftermarket accessories he could offer.

Jessica says, “It was never our plan to manufacture our own products – we wanted to be the design house.” In their first year in business they tested China with a few prototypes. “The product wasn’t one I would put my name on”, Jeff admits. Then the company tested some local Western USA companies for machining, fabrication, and powder coating. Jessica says, “In all cases local suppliers worked for a while, but as our volumes increased, their turnaround and pricing made it difficult to A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

continue with this business model.” Beginning in 2020, literally months after they had launched their business in a 5600 square foot facility in Deer Valley, the Westcotts began equipping their business with machines. Jeff says, “We’ve purchased a 4K laser machine, a robotic welder, and an Omax waterjet. We’ve also purchased a new Haas machine every 6 months, until we reached 4, with our last arriving just months ago. Our Haas machines include 3 Haas ST-20Y lathes and a Haas VF-2SS Mill.” Chris Hansen, Business Manager for Ellison Machinery / Haas Factory Outlet, and Certified Manufacturing Technology Sales Engineer (CMTSE), says, “The Haas ST-20 Series high-performance turning centers were designed from the ground up to provide set-up flexibility, extreme rigidity, and high thermal stability. The ability to turn and mill complex parts and perform multiple operations on a single machine increases throughput, reduces handling, and improves part accuracy. The Haas ST-20 Series Y-axis turning centers provide 101mm of Y-axis travel for off-center milling, drilling, and tapping, and come standard with 6000-rpm live tooling and a servo-driven C axis for versatile 4-axis capability.” He adds, “The Haas VF-2SS (Super Speed) is a vertical mil that features a 12,000-rpm, inline direct-drive spindle, an ultra-fast side-mount tool changer, and high-speed rapids on all axes. It comes equipped with a 4th-axis drive; coordinate rotation and scaling; High-speed machining; User-definable macros; and Wi-Fi connectivity. Like all Haas machines, the VF-2SS is made in the USA.” Jeff says, “I know many people in the industry, and I knew that the Haas machine tool line would be ideal for our products. We like their pricing, performance, the fact that they are made in the US, and that it is easy to get them serviced.” He adds, “Chris Hansen is outstanding for our business. He is so knowledgeable and attentive and he makes the buying process seamless. There is just a really good reason we keep buying from him.” The company has taken advantage of Ellison Machinery’s mill and lathe classes held at their facility each month. “We send each new machinist through the training”, Jessica says. It was at Overland Expo, a series of premier offroad expositions held in the country, with the ‘West Overland Expo’ held in Flagstaff, Arizona, that helped Westcott Designs earn

significant industry brand recognition. Jessica says, “There were Toyota Aftermarket executives from several divisions around the country who came to the last Overland Expo, and we could sense they liked our products because they would come back several times bringing new engineers to see our products.” Discussions over the past months have gone so well that Westcott Designs has been selected for Toyota’s new aftermarket accessories division’s new program. Jeff says, “This program is beginning November 1st, and Toyota picked 10 vendors that they want to support, stand behind, and co-brand with. When you go to Toyota’s accessory website, you will soon see our accessories.” Jeff expects Westcott Design’s production to increase 4-fold as the Toyota program kicks into gear. “We’re continuing to add machines and technology to support this effort, and we’ve just added our 6th building to the business, bringing us to a total of 37,000 square feet.” Chris says, “Jeff and Jessica’s vision for Westcott Design is amazing; it is outstanding to see what they have done with their company in such a few short years.” Jessica says that they are lucky to have incredible retention of outstanding employees, and she elaborates that many employees drive up to an hour to work here. “Our work is exciting and I think employees appreciate how well we treat them.” If you are looking to join a team that is building its business in magnitudes, designing and manufacturing fun and exciting Toyota aftermarket accessories, contact them at: (888) 574-5270 or visit westcottdesigns.net Haas Automation manufactures a complete line of CNC Vertical Machining Centers, Horizontal Machining Centers, Turning Centers, 5-axis Machining Centers, and Rotary Products, as well as fully integrated Automation Solutions.

Raytheon, Northrop Grumman Awarded Hypersonic Missile Contract Worth Nearly $1B A partnership between Raytheon’s Missiles & Defense division and Northrop Grumman has been awarded a nearly $1 billion contract to develop the Hypersonic Attack Cruise Missile (HACM) for the U.S. Air Force. The air-launched HACM will be the first of its kind, and the $985.34 million contract calls for the two companies to design, develop and deliver the missile by March 2027. The project is part of a joint initiative between the U.S. and Australia called the Southern Cross Integrated Flight Research Experiment, or SCIFiRE. Both companies are major defense contractors in Arizona, with Raytheon Technologies’ Missiles & Defense division based in Tucson — where the company employed 13,000 people at last count and where work will be done — and Northrop Grumman having a significant presence with 3,500 employees in Chandler.

Prepared monthly, the report provides an economic indicator for the next three months of manufacturing, sampling 114 metalforming companies in the United States and Canada. PMA’s September report shows that 60% of metalforming companies anticipate no change in general economic activity in the next three months (compared to 52% in August), 11% forecast an increase in activity (the same percentage reported in August) and 29% predict a decrease in activity (an improvement from 37% last month). The report showed a modest improvement in expectations for incoming orders, with 19% of survey respondents forecasting an increase in incoming orders during the next three months (compared to 17% in August), 54% predicting no change (compared to 49% last month) and 27% anticipating a decrease in orders (compared to 34% in August). Current average daily shipping levels rebounded in September after declining for the previous four months. Thirty-two percent of respondents reported an increase in shipping levels and only 17% reported a decrease (compared to 30% in August). “Metalformers continue to expect fairly steady business conditions in the last quarter of the year,” said PMA President David Klotz. “Our members anticipate little change in current economic activity and shipping levels seem to be steadying after declining A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

the last several months. What is striking is that the report shows that more than six in 10 members are expanding their workforce and trying to find workers to fill these jobs. PMA continues to assist members in promoting the great careers that can be found in manufacturing through our workforce development program. The Precision Metalforming Association Educational Foundation (PMAEF), in partnership with 14 PMA districts, is providing scholarships of $1,000 or more to high school seniors and others who are training for careers in manufacturing.Our members also will be actively promoting manufacturing careers in October to celebrate MFG Day/ Manufacturing Month. This toolkit has everything needed to host an engaging presentation, event, and/or share inspiring media over social media and online.”
