Editors Corner Covid clearly wreaked havoc in our lives, nobody can dispute this. But if there is a silver lining to the pandemic, it is how it has helped US manufacturing. What we started seeing during the pandemic, and now continues, is that American manufacturers are increasingly bringing manufacturing to the US to reduce their reliance on global supply chains. This trend is helped by Government programs and funding to lure companies back. The Chips and Science Act and the Inflation Reduction Act, both provide tax breaks and subsidies for investing, particularly for the semiconductor, electric vehicle, and pharmaceutical industries.

Just this past month, the WSJ published an article highlighting the trend towards bringing home overseas jobs, stating that companies are on pace to reshore nearly 350,000 jobs this year. Per the Reshoring Initiative, this is the highest number on record since the group began tracking the data in 2010.

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

According to Kearney’s Reshoring Index, an overwhelming majority of US companies with production in China have already moved back to the US or plan to do so in the next 3 years. They highlight a barrage of announcements of US manufacturing entities expanding operations here on our soil. Here are some:

Published by: A2Z Manufacturing

General Motors announced plans to spend $7B on plants in Michigan. Ultium Cells LLC, the joint venture between GM and LG Energy Solution, has 4 plants in the plans in the US, each with a projected cost of about $2 billion. The locations include Warren, Ohio, Lansing, Michigan, Spring Hill, Tennessee, and potentially New Carlisle, Indiana. GE Appliances has invested more than $2B in manufacturing centers in the past few years, including plants in Lafayette, GA, Decatur, AL, Camden, SC and Louisville, KY. Micron Technology announced a $40B expansion for memory manufacturing in Idaho. Ascend Elements said it would invest $22B for electric vehicle charging systems, amongst other products, in Kentucky and Tennessee. In our own backyard, Intel is investing $12B on two chip factories. US Steel is investing in a $3B steelmaking factory in Osceola, AR. Nucor is investing $2.7B on a steel plate mill in Brandberg, KY. Generec Power Systems moved some production from China to the US after the pandemic. Last year it unveiled plans to open a new plant in Trenton, SC. Lockheed Martin is putting $16.5M into its new missile system integration facility in Huntsville, AL.

Reshoring expert Harry Moser commented on the effects of reshoring. “There’s no question that companies, when they bring jobs back, they know they’re going to pay three to five times as much for labor. Therefore, they have to automate.” In fact, per the Association For Advanced Automation, North American companies ordered a record 11,595 robots, worth $646 million in Q1 of this year, putting 2022 on pace to surpass last year’s record numbers. What does this mean for our industry? An enormous amount of new opportunities, and in Harry Moser’s words, the need to automate. Until next issue, I wish you the best. As always, God Bless our Troops, our healthcare providers and our First Responders.

Mazak Puts the Strategy in Strategic Workforce Development Each month 3 to 4.5 million employees quit their jobs, which costs their employers about 33% of the worker’s annual salary to replace them. Fortunately, the bulk of the reasons for such employee turnover i s p re v e n t a b l e w h e n companies take a truly strategic approach to their workforce development programs. A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

10 • Sept / Oct 2022

In taking just such an approach here at Mazak, we revamped our workforce development program by first focusing on some key aspects. Those included job descriptions, compensation and business vulnerabilities along with our efforts in recruitment and retention. In evaluating job descriptions, the key is to determine the necessary skills and talents needed for each position as well as any necessary training, then focus on the individual employee. When doing so, the goal is to also identify future potential leaders within company. Part of our planning was not only to look at succession, but also to realize business vulnerabilities per each department. These can include things like age, lack of talent and how to overcome them. This then leads to what actions have already been taken, if any, and what actions will be planned and executed. Not taking a strategic approach is like plugging a hole in a dam as opposed to evaluating the whole dam to find out why the hole developed and how to prevent others from developing. You have to ask where are the weaknesses and where do we need to reinforce. Announcements Continued Page 12

Announcements & Releases Continued Our strategy, when it came to compensation, was simple and straight forward. We wanted compensation packages that were competitive and would attract new talent as well, and we wanted to position Mazak as a company that doesn’t just offer a job, it offers a career. In a nutshell, we evaluated the pay structure per each position to make sure it was fair across the board and was an accurate representation of the skills and knowledge needed for that position. When it came to employee recruitment, we stepped our job posting efforts, casting a larger net to target key potential candidate pools such as military veterans. To retain those individuals once hired, our strategy includes programs and opportunities that will provide both job satisfaction and opportunities for advancement. These include training, tuition assistance, our leadership programs, work schedule flexibility and job rotation. Last year we filled 135 employment requisitions – some were promotional opportunities – as result of our recruitment and retention efforts as well as the rest of our strategic workforce development plan. During Covid, we didn’t lay off any employees, but we also didn’t hire a new employees. Then business picked up fast with surging customer demand. So we had to go into a heavy recruiting mode to gain the manpower to keep pace. We successfully got the workforce to a level that was needed A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

Hurco Automation Launches “No Robot Programming” for High-Mix Manufacturing Practical Job Shop Automation powered by Hurco and ProCobots has eliminated the obstacles of conventional automation that shops with a high mix of parts have experienced. Hurco developed this completely integrated automation solution to address issues customers said they had experienced when adding automation to their shop. Typical issues included complicated robot programming that required a thirdparty integrator to set up new jobs, lack of integration between the robots and their CNC machines, and the inflexibility that prevented them from moving their robot from one machine to another. “We heard stories of customers who tried automation and the robots ended up sitting idle in the corner as soon as the first job was finished. We know our customers typically have a high mix of parts and they need quick changeover. There wasn’t a good solution for them and since our mission is to develop technology that helps our customers be more productive and more Announcements Continued Page 16

When Bob Timm, coowner of Oakridge Fabrication, was considering the addition of automation to his Wisconsin shop, he heard similar automation stories from shop owners who had robots sitting idle in the corner after the initial job was finished. “I thought, if there’s a cobot out there that can integrate with our equipment and everything is there so we can roll it out and hook it up…our purchase has to be something like that,” said Timm, who explained that he was considering automation to optimize the time of his talented machinists by minimizing redundant tasks that would allow them to focus on the more skilled aspects of their job while in addition to increasing throughput at his busy shop. After evaluating the Hurco/ProCobots Practical Job Shop Automation A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

Within two days, the guys were changing programs…the interface is so nice and you can see everything that’s going on,” said Timm. The results at Oakridge include part changeover that is five minutes or less, a job that used to be three days of hand-loading parts is now completed overnight, and unattended run times of 12-16 hours are the norm. One of the Oakridge Fabrication machinists said the Hurco Job Shop Automation runs three days of work in one night. Randy Flores, owner D & R Machinery, a tenured distributor for Hurco, said the Job Shop Automation system on Hurco developed is a competitive advantage for shops, especially those with a high mix of parts, and it also addresses the labor shortages his customers have experienced.

A ccountable R esilient

C ompassionate A daptable S ustainable Arcas Machine has been in business for well over 50 years! Now, as a 3rd generation owned company, Denny Arcas has transformed the “typical” machine shop into a well-innovated, state-of-the-art, manufacturing facility. The culture of this company is all about employees who share a positive ‘can-do’ attitude and who support one another, much like a family. Spencer Mallett, Operations Manager, says, “We’ve been in a stage of high growth over the past 12 months, and it is essential that we hire the right people for our company. To improve our success rate, we’ve used personal value survey results from our team members to determine the collective values we want from our new employees. Some of the more critical values that Arcas embodies include compassion, ownership, gratitude, honesty, and adaptability.” He continued, “At Arcas, we hire preliminarily based on attitude and values as a precedent to skill. We can teach skill, but attitude is much more difficult to change.” This year alone, Arcas Machine has hired 16 new team members, with another 3 incoming. Everything about Arcas is high tech, from the software and tooling they use, the m a c h i n e t e c h n o l o g y, their data d r i v e n approach for running the business, and their certifications. This even includes their market facing image to their customers. Arcas utilizes a Keyence image dimension measurement system and a CMM in their highly qualified quality department. They are AS9100 certified, as well as ITAR registered. The company has been supporting customers in aerospace machining for nearly 60 years, manufacturing parts for engines, APUs, cabin pressure systems, and landing gears. They are highly skilled in machining a variety of materials, including super alloys and composites, enabling their parts to handle both high and low heat environments. The company is a proud supplier to a number of high-profile aerospace and defense companies including Honeywell, Celestica, Boeing Distributions, Sargent Aerospace, MOOG Aircraft Group, and Plexus, amongst others. Maggie Anger, Administrative Manager says, “We’ve worked with a number A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

of our customers for over 40 years, through name changes, e c o n o m i c downturns, and much more. We are proud that several of our customers consider us a partner and a friend in their business.” Arcas Machine always encourages its employees furthering their education. Spencer earned his degree in business at Arizona State University while he was working for Arcas. He will be completing his MBA in Data Analytics next August. Spencer is an expert in utilizing business statistics to help improve the company. “We were heavily intuition based in our decision-making processes and we are moving toward data driven, where we utilize intuition as a compliment to data. Data has to be at the forefront of every decision we make.” Arcas Machine is very quality driven as they strive for 99.999% or better. In the last twelve months, they have worked towards this goal as their current metric is 99.998%. Along with quality, sustainability is an important key feature in the company. Working to ensure their yield is 97.000% or better, this not only helps material efficiency, this betters the environment. What’s next for Arcas? In the short term, they will complete the implementation for their ERP System (IQMS Delmiaworks), and they will take advantage of the monitoring capabilities for uptime and spindle utilization in their Okumas and other machine tools. In the longer term, they are looking for a new facility. They have grown 4-fold in their shop space since they moved the business from Torrance, CA to Gilbert, AZ 25 years ago, and today they have maxed out their space. “We consider ourselves somewhat early adopters of technology, with Denny clearly spearheading this”, Spencer says, adding “We purchased our first 5 axis machining center, an Okuma Millac 33TU, over ten years ago. Moving forward, we are looking to add additive

manufacturing, 3D printing, robotics and c o m p l e t e assemblies to our capabilities.” Spencer says that the latest acquisition, the Hermle C400 was chosen specifically to increase their competitive advantage and enable the company to manufacture larger parts for their customers. “Now, we can make parts as large as 33.4” x 27.5” x 20””, Spencer says. He adds, “Prior to making a new machine tool acquisition, we look at the business we had to no quote over the past year, and if, for example, 15% was due to size, then we know it makes economic sense to invest in the new machine. This is a huge way we show adaptability to our customers and the industry.” The team at Arcas places high value on people and as such, it is loyal not just to its employees and customers, but also to its partners. Every CNC machine that the company owns today was procured through their machine tool dealer partner, Arizona CNC. Spencer says, “The team at Arizona CNC, including our long-term Business Development person Jeff Currie, is outstanding. We appreciate their transparency, their responsiveness to any issues we have, and with their knowledge not just of their machines, but also of the tooling we need to optimize our operations. We also believe in buying best in class machine technology, and you can’t get a better product than the Okuma machine tool line.” Today, the company’s lathe department is equipped with the Okuma LB3000 EX II Space Turns, which Arizona CNC’s Jeff says “is a large horizontal lathe built on Okuma’s Thermo-Friendly Concept to ensure minimal thermal growth, and slanted box bed construction translates to unsurpassed quality and rigidity. The machine delivers high-quality machining from heavy- to high-speed cutting.” The company also utilizes an Okuma Genos L250 lathe. For their milling capabilities, Arcas owns the Okuma Genos M560-V, which Jeff says, “is a vertical machining center that cuts large, complex parts. The rigid, thermally-stable, double-column construction gives this CNC machine the ability to withstand thermal deformation. It’s also one of the heaviest, most rigid machines in its class.” Arcas Machine purchased their first 5-axis machine the Okuma Millac 33TU over a decade ago. Jeff says, “The Millac 33TU is a combination five-axis vertical lathe and vertical machining center that performs precision turning and milling operations in one setup. It features a direct drive (DD) 2-axis trunnion table— which is ideal for radial and angular applications.” Just this year, Arcas Machine took delivery of their Hermle C400 5 axis machining center, also procured through Arizona CNC.

Arcas History - Having spent time in Europe perfecting his engineering and machining skills, Joseph Arcas founded Arcas Machine Inc. in 1966 in Gardena, California. Since then, Arcas has had three generations of owners. Joseph’s son, Steve Arcas, took over in 1978 and moved the company to Gilbert, Arizona in 1997. Joseph’s grandson, Denny Arcas, took in May 2009 after he graduated from ASU. Denny and the team he’s assembled have been at the forefront of the company’s explosive growth!

water is still expensive, the war in Ukraine has emphasized the need for the West to gain energy independence and raised the cost of conventional fuels. Last year, Airbus unveiled three hydrogen-aircraft concepts, one or more of which it hopes to realize by 2035. It has a regional plane project, and two that would cover most routes flown by its narrow-body A320, the world’s most popular jet. In a recent report, the International Council on Clean Transportation estimated that hydrogen jets would make up half of regional and narrow-body sales in a scenario in which aviation stops using fossil fuels by 2050. Yet the term “hydrogen plane” is ambiguous, referring to different technologies that each come with their own challenges. ZeroAvia’s propulsion system works like a hydrogen car, with fuel cells that turn hydrogen into electricity to move the propellers, whereas pure hydrogen planes are those that burn the gas in a conventional engine, as tested in the 1950s.

Hobson Street Gilbert, AZ 85233 (480) 892-7800 Email: wricoazjb@wrico-net.com Hydrogen Planes Show Promise—and Their Limitations The case for using hydrogen on very short flights is looking stronger. Investors shouldn’t read too much into what this says about the future of aviation. Earlier this month, ZeroAvia announced an investment by American Airlines, which will potentially order up to 100 of its hydrogen-electric engines for use in regional planes. The BritishAmerican startup has preorders for around 1,000 engines after adding a raft of new partners, who will join United Airlines, Alaska Airlines and British Airways. ZeroAvia founder and chief executive Val Miftakhov said some U.K. airports are also about to sign on to help develop hydrogen infrastructure. Hydrogen hype is at a high.

Generating enough power with fuel cells alone has been hard. Following the crash of a smaller prototype last year, ZeroAvia has decided to test its new 600-kilowatt powertrain— scheduled for certification in 2024—on two 19-seat Dornier 228 planes, one of which will supplement the fuel cells with a battery and the other with a conventional engine, at least initially. And these aircraft will only serve niche players. Mainstream regional operators need turboprops with at least 50 seats and a 400-mile range. This means waiting for ZeroAvia’s next powertrain, which should produce between 2,000 and 5,000 kilowatts. The company hopes to deliver it by 2026. Hydrogen combustion has different problems. It is less efficient than fuel cells and generates large emissions of non-carbon gases such as water Continued Page 32

vapor and nitrogen oxides. Their environmental impact is unclear, which is why Airbus announced last month it will use hydrogen test gliders to study the line-shaped clouds they generate. This is a wise move, but underscores the unknowns that could sink the technology as a green alternative. It is revealing how much wiggle room the European plane maker has given itself to decide which type of hydrogen jet to develop. Whether used in a turbine engine or fuel cell, hydrogen occupies much more space than kerosene and can’t be stored in the wings. This makes airframes increasingly hard to redesign as the range increases, even though only 7% of passenger carbon emissions come from regional planes. While ZeroAvia’s time line appears optimistic, the current buzz could well spell a period of hydrogen-electric upheaval for regional jets in the 2030s. Promises to fly further than a few hundred miles with hydrogen, however, still look vaporous. Source: WSJ

in the workforce or both. Additionally, they’ve entered the workforce at a time when many companies are rethinking their workplace strategies and competing in a fierce battle for talent. Against that backdrop, it’s no surprise many managers and executives have been vexed by the youngest generation of the workforce — a cohort experts say is, on the whole, more vocal and socially conscious than their predecessors. One key to integrating Gen Z into the workforce is patience, according to Stephanie Scott, campus recruiting senior manager for West Monroe Partners. Her firm hosted more than 200 Gen Z workers for an in-person forum to give the young workers an opportunity to meet with professionals in the consulting world. We spoke with Scott, who helps build the strategy for scaling her company’s campus program while also focusing on building a diverse talent pipeline, about the experience and why patience is critical when tryin to connect with Gen Z workers.

For us, it’s really showcasing our culture to them — really showcasing how they can grow and build us in the organization. It’s different. We’re dealing with a different generation. Covid has changed things, how people interact and how comfortable they are with each other. It was about us adapting our recruiting styles to match that of this new generation. We learned a lot coming out of the conference in terms of little things they’ve never done before, and different things you have to teach them. So for me, it was more about how we can adjust to this generation coming through right now. What changes have you made to your recruiting strategies, and what are some best practices for adapting recruiting styles to better fit this new generation? We’ve completely changed our application process to where, if I meet you in person at a career fair, or if I never set foot on your campus, and you apply directly to us, you will go through the exact same application process. You will have the exact same opportunity to interview and to get in front of the different folks here at West Monroe. I would say historically that was not the case.

group that surprised you? I was surprised at how much they appreciated the opportunity to get together and to do things in person. I do feel like sometimes folks shy away from that a little bit. But they were really enthusiastic to be together. For employers who are looking to hire more young people, what are some best practices for dealing with the new generation of workers? It’s about being really patient, and understanding that they’re coming from a world where they did a couple of years of schooling in front of their computers and maybe at home. We’re also realizing that this generation isn’t leveraging career services in some of their resources as much as previous generations did on campus. There’s an element to educating them as well with things like the offer process, how to do interviews, and other things. It’s a lot of patience and a lot of education. Trying to put yourself in their shoes of what they’ve been through with Covid and what the pandemic did to them, which is very different from most of us and what we went through in college.

In Shifting Nevada Economy, Manufacturing Taking More Prominent Role The manufacturing worker base grew to an all-time high of 5 percent of Nevada’s employment landscape, an increase that signals a shift in the local economy as the state has now exceeded the number of jobs it had pre-pandemic but also as the hospitality industry remains 33,000 jobs short of pre-COVID levels. Economists said it’s unclear whether hospitality-related employers are cutting costs and not hiring people back, or if workers left the industry voluntarily for other opportunities. “If you look at transportation, warehousing and utilities, it’s up 18,300 jobs, and this is all statewide,” said Bob Potts, deputy director of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED). “Manufacturing is up 5,200 jobs above pre-pandemic [levels].” And more jobs are on the horizon. In June, Gov. Steve Sisolak announced on Twitter that seven new companies were coming to or expanding in Nevada — and many of the related jobs fall into the categories of transportation, logistics or manufacturing. For instance, the footwear company Crocs is establishing a distribution and warehouse facility in North Las Vegas that will eventually bring 325 jobs, and a polystyrene manufacturing company called FMI is opening a facility in Clark County that could add 720 jobs within five years. Companies rolling in are paying average hourly wages ranging from $30 to $45 while offering more than 1,000 jobs across the state. Nevada’s labor force is made up of more than 1.1 million workers. Leaders at DETR said that the local workforce is ready and prepared to take on manufacturing jobs and that there are many training opportunities available. A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

According to a May report with data from DETR, industries including warehousing, utilities, transportation and manufacturing make up the Nevada manufacturing sector and gained 24,000 new workers, reaching a high of 75,000 employees and recovering beyond 100 percent from the COVID downturn. In comparison, the 300,000-person hospitality and leisure worker base remains only 91 percent recovered from the pandemic, and 80 percent when it comes to the casino and hotel industry — the lowest rate of recovery for all job sectors in Nevada. For years, state leaders have tried to diversify Nevada’s economy, which is heavily reliant on the hospitality and tourism sector and susceptible to any financial downturns when consumers pull back on leisure spending.

economy led the state to become hardest hit by the 2008 recession and made headlines that year for having the highest unemployment rate in nationwide history at 14 percent. At its COVID peak, unemployment reached 28 percent in Nevada. But as of June, it had fallen to 4.7 percent. “Because of the low unemployment [rate] … we are seeing shifts,” said John Pearl, an economist at DETR. “Most of the businesses and companies that we work with are willing to lower their [job qualification] standards so they can accommodate [workers] who may not have the required skills, so they can train them.” Pearl said just about every state is seeing shifts in their workforce landscape, while CNBC reported that 48 percent of American workers who left their jobs during the “Great Resignation” of the last few years joined new industries. As Nevadans shifted from hospitality into manufacturing jobs, they have seen their pay increase. Hospitality workers make $500 to $800 per week on average, while manufacturing workers bring in $1,100 to $1,300 per week, according to the report from DETR and GOED. Leaders of GOED said not only is the economy strengthened by “high-quality jobs with strong wages” through the A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

manufacturing sector but also because it’s an export industry. As such, the manufacturing sector brings in new revenue from outside of the state when products are sold in places other than Nevada, boosting local supply chains, productivity and profits.

“[Manufacturers] exchange what [they] make for money,” Potts said. “That money that flows back in takes the form of earnings … then those dollars are spun off and spent back into the local community for what we call secondary industries, like grocery stores, dentists, doctors and car dealerships.” Economists find it especially important to balance the local economy in order to better combat financial catastrophes like the one incurred by the 2020 shutdown in which Nevada was one of the hardest-hit states economically. One of the biggest victories the state, and specifically GOED, has ever had in attracting large manufacturers was the Tesla lithium-ion battery factory. Announced in 2014 and located east of Reno in Storey County, it had a lot to do with the transformation of the Northern Nevada economy. By: Naoka Foreman

At AMS, You Get AS9100 Certified, Quick-Turn, High Precision 5-Axis Machined Parts From A Family-Owned, Certified Minority-Owned Business Surprisingly, even today, you will meet many shops who have been in business for decades, who have a large, experienced team of machinists….who haven’t yet embraced 5 axis machining. And then there are outliers (in a good way), who launched their business just a few years ago (and became a machine shop just 2 years ago), who are staffed with a skeleton team of family members, and who are running their shop with 5 axis machine capabilities. Introducing Alpha Manufacturing Solutions (AMS). The company, founded in 2009, is a family owned and certified minority owned business (Certification Number-AZ16320) that recently achieved their AS9100D and ISO 9001:2015 certification (with remarkably ‘0’ findings). AND they offer 5 axis machining. At AMS, there are 3 family members, all machinists, and each is integral to its success: •

Jose Escobar, who launched the company in 2009. Jose was born in Mexico, and growing up on a farm, he learned from a young age how to repair machines. Jose added to his mechanical expertise in Mexico by attending school to become a machine technician. More than 2 decades ago, Jose came to the United States, where he trained to become a Journeyman machinist, and worked for a number of shops throughout the Western USA. Jose says, “Machining is my passion and it has always been my dream to own a machine shop.” Idalia Escobar, Jose’s wife, who also has spent the last 2 decades in machine shops. Idalia continued to work for a machine shop while Jose was growing the business, and the company finally brought Idalia on fulltime as a machinist to the family business just this year. Christian Escobar, Idalia and Jose’s only child, who graduated 4 years ago from the Arizona State University Polytechnic Campus with a degree in Manufacturing Engineering. Like Idalia, when the business was just starting up, Christian supported the family’s business by working in the industry at other companies.

In its early years, with Jose as the sole employee, AMS was primarily a consulting company, with Jose providing engineering services and CAD/CAM design work. Companies valued Jose’s Journeyman expertise, which included design for manufacturability, and for his CAD/CAM programming expertise, A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

• 42 • Sept / Oct 2022

which Jose had taught himself. Once Christian graduated from ASU in 2018, he began, in his own words, bugging his father to open a machine shop. Christian says, “It took 2 years, but we bought our first machines in 2020.” As a relatively new business with little credit, the company’s first 3 machines were used. Jose says, “We all have experience on a variety of machines, and when we decided to make our first new machine tool purchase, we determined it would be a Haas.” It wasn’t just a Haas that the Escobar’s purchased for their first new machine, it was a Haas 5 axis machine, the Haas UMC-500SS Universal Machining Center. Chris Hansen, Business Manager for Ellison Machinery / Haas Factory Outlet, supporting the team at Alpha Manufacturing Solutions, says, “The Haas UMC-500SS offers full simultaneous and 3+2 capability in a compact package, and it was perfect for the Escobars, who had made the decision to offer 5 axis machining to their customers.” He added, “You don’t meet too many young companies like Alpha Manufacturing

readily available. We received our Haas UMC-500SS 3 weeks after we ordered it!”

Solutions, who so thoroughly embrace new technology.” Chris isn’t your typical machine tool salesperson. He is a Certified Manufacturing Technology Sales Engineer (CMTSE), and like Christian, he is a degreed Manufacturing Engineer, with the 2 sharing the same alma mater. Christian says, “Chris and I share a unique bond with such common backgrounds, and I value his input and recommendations for our business.” Christian says, “The Haas UMC-500SS was an ideal machine for us for a number of reasons: • The user interface is extremely friendly, and this will become more important as we grow our team with less experienced machinists. • The Haas UMC-500SS is probably the most affordable, high quality machine available if you are investing in 5 axis technology. Frankly, if Haas didn’t have this machine, we probably wouldn’t have been able to afford 5 axis machining for our shop. • The fact that the Haas machines are made in the US is a plus, and it was especially beneficial when we were making our purchase during the Pandemic, because Haas had machines

Just 6 months after acquiring the Haas UMC-500SS, the company added its 2nd new machine to the business. Again, it was a Haas, though this time a lathe. Christian says, “We purchased the Haas multiaxis ST-30. It has a medium footprint, and provides a generous work envelope, so we can machine high precision larger parts.” Chris adds, “The Haas ST Series high performance turning centers were designed from the ground up to provide setup flexibility, extreme rigidity, and high thermal stability.” Christian says the Haas ST-30 is the easiest lathe on the market to use when you are doing sub-spindle work, because of its mirror function. He says that while the company machines primarily aluminum, steel and stainless, they are also experienced in machining Inconel and Titanium parts. Christian says, “We really enjoy working with Chris and the team at Ellison Machinery. They offer great products at a budget friendly price, they are easily accessible, and very customer oriented. On top of this, my relationship with Chris is outstanding.” You will be hard pressed to find a small, nimble machine shop that has the expertise, the certifications, and the technology that AMS offers.

To Address Labor Shortages, Manufacturers Must Become Talent Creators Our nation is facing a dire shortage of manufacturing workers. The National Association of Manufacturers forecasts that by 2030, the United States could have 2.1 million unfilled manufacturing jobs. A March 2022 survey from Deloitte and the Manufacturing Institute found that nearly half of manufacturing executives said they have had to turn down business opportunities because they lacked enough workers.


• 44 • Sept / Oct 2022

We’re not going to grow our way out of this problem. As baby boomers retire and millennials reach middle age, the Congressional Budget Office predicts that the American labor force will growby less than 0.2% per year through 2031. As America renews its promise of investing in infrastructure, it is vital that we build pipelines to fill these jobs. To meet their employment needs, manufacturing companies must become talent creators. Operating under the old model of talent consumption isn’t an option when there simply aren’t enough workers, skilled or otherwise, to hire. Because hiring is expensive, it makes financial sense to invest in models that let companies harvest the rewards of growing their own talent. To this point, there are a growing number of examples of companies awakening to this reality. Electric vehicle maker Lucid Motors wanted to start production at a new Arizona plant and didn’t have time to

hire and train new workers. So it partnered with local government, the local community college and the state’s economic development agency to build and equip a stateof-the-art training facility. By last September, when the new plant began production, more than 700 workers—the entirety of Lucid’s hourly workforce—had used this training facility. Germany’s BMW used the growyour-own approach out of necessity when it picked South Carolina as the site of its first American plant. As the plant grew to more than 11,000 employees, BMW expanded its commitment to worker training. BMW’s apprenticeship program now works with 4 area community colleges, and the company announced plans to open new training avenues for high school seniors and people with degrees or experience in technical fields. This summer, BMW expects to open at its South Carolina plant a new $20 million training center that it will use to conduct professional development and technical instruction. Upskilling and reskilling of existing employees is also a vital piece of this employment puzzle. There’s another good lesson to be learned from Taziki’s Mediterranean Café, a fast- food chain with about 90 locations nationwide. Many of its kitchen workers speak limited English—good enough to turn out food but not fluent enough to work in the front of the house or as a manager no matter how skilled they were. So Taziki’s turned to a language upskilling platform to help employees improve their English. The company saw immediate results, with kitchen staff members getting promoted to better-paying jobs with more responsibility. But not all manufacturing companies (nor those in many other sectors ranging from aviation to allied health) can create their

There’s certainly a need to develop new mechanisms whereby companies can “invest” in training the talent they need. Companies should work with high schools, community colleges and training programs to raise awareness of manufacturing jobs — and the skills students should learn to land these positions. Starting or expanding apprenticeship programs that combine learning and working can bring talented students right from high school or college right to the factory floor. Companies also should reach out to people who are underrepresented in manufacturing, such as women and veterans. One example is Union Pacific, which is aiming to double the number of women in its workforceover the next decade. In tandem with The Manufacturing Institute, the railroad is offering new digital and virtual STEM curricula and experiences that help get young women interested in careers in transportation, manufacturing and engineering. Bylooking for potential rather than prior experience/jobs when they source workers, companies can broaden their candidate base. By: Chris Keaveney, CEO of Meritize. A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

Over the decades the industry has overcome and prospered through recessions, a financial crisis, and a global health pandemic. We are all now faced with the challenges of supply chain disruption, inflation, labor shortages, and the ‘noise’ that accompanies the upcoming midterm elections in a few months. Regardless of these challenges, the industry always performs well. I am happy to report that SCF is on a record pace for new business volume and profitability this year, and our portfolio continues to perform exceptionally well.” August 2022 Survey Results: The overall MCI-EFI is 50, an increase from the July index of 46.1. • When asked to assess their business conditions over the next four months, 14.8% of executives responding said they believe business conditions will improve over the next four months, an increase from 3.7% in July. 51.9% believe business conditions A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

Take The Mystery Out Of Resistance Welding When properly applied, the resistance welding process is the fastest, least expensive and strongest method of joining steel and aluminum sheet metal and attaching nuts and studs. Commonly called spot, seam and projection welding, the process is often ignored in favor of other methods because it is not widely understood outside of the automotive industry. The “mystery” of resistance welding is compounded because, unlike arc welding, it’s hard to judge weld strength

Hear From Some Of MMT Productivity’s Customers

Maintenance program.

“I’ve been working with MMT Productivity for many years and have purchased 8 Haas machines, both lathes and mills. Our relationship with the MMT Productivity is great; they are responsive whenever we have an issue with hardware or software. We believe in maintaining our machines, because we recognize the cost of a machine going down, so we contract with MMT Productivity for their Preventive

Just over a year ago, we started purchasing tooling from the MMT Productivity Tooling Division, and we also started using their ‘Fast Track!‘ vending system. I was leery prior to using this system due to previous issues with other vending style systems. I took the chance with the Fast Track! and it has been outstanding for our company. We aren’t having any problems that have come up with competing systems, and I am looking to add abrasives, accessories (i.e., safety glasses) to the tooling that we are already using our Fast Track! for. Since installing the Fast Track!, as Shop Manager, machinists rarely come to me saying we’re out of a particular tool, and this means that we aren’t wasting time either programming a workaround with new tooling or worse, we don’t have a machine idle while we wait for the new tool to come in. It is really advantageous that MMT Productivity can offer both machines and all of the accessories, supplies, and service that go with machining.” Brad, Wild Goose Filling “We’ve been buying machines from MMT Productivity for nearly 2 decades – both Haas and Makino machines. More recently, we’ve been buying tooling from them. We’ve just had so many positive experiences working with MMT Productivity over these years. If we ever have a problem with a machine, they consistently take care of the issue in a timely manner. We trust MMT Productivity, and we value their dedication to doing things right. We recognize that MMT Productivity takes very good care of their employees; not only do we respect this, but we also appreciate that this means that their high retention provides their customers with a highly experienced team. I highly recommend MMT Productivity to anyone.” Mike, Accu-Precision PresidentMike, Accu-Precision Oct 2022 54 22 Sept• Sept / Oct/2022

Microchip To Design Us Space Program’s Next-Generation Computer Processor C h a n d l e r- b a s e d semiconductor giant Microchip Technology Inc. has won a $50 million federal contract to help develop the nextgeneration processor for spaceflight computing.

The selection by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory taps Microchip to work over the next three years to design and deliver a High-Performance Spaceflight Computing, or HPSC, processor that will have at least 100 times the computing capacity of the computers now in use. Microchip’s aim will be to enable scalable computing power to handle different mission needs. Its processor is intended to improve on current state-of-the-art versions with greater reliability, higher fault tolerance and the ability to perform calculations up to 100 times faster. In addition to the contract award amount, the Valley company — which is one of Arizona’s largest public companies — will also contribute significantly to the costs of research and development. “We are making a joint investment with NASA on a new trusted and transformative compute platform,” Babak Samimi, corporate vice president for Microchip’s Communications business unit, said in a statement. “It will deliver comprehensive Ethernet networking, advanced artificial intelligence/machine learning processing and connectivity support while offering unprecedented performance gain, fault-tolerance, and security architecture at low power consumption. We will foster an industry-wide ecosystem of single board computer partners anchored on the HPSC processor and Microchip’s complementary spacequalified total system solutions to benefit a new generation of mission-critical edge compute designs optimized for size, weight, and power.” The contract is part of NASA’s High Performance Space Computing project and is led by JPL in Southern California. The selection comes a year after NASA sought proposals for a trade study for an advanced radiation-hardened computing chip. NASA envisions the processors being used for future planetary exploration and missions to the surface of the moon and Mars. “This cutting-edge spaceflight processor will have a tremendous impact on our future space missions and even technologies here on Earth,” said Niki Werkheiser, Continued Page 58 A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

Last month, Canada-based Chemtrade Logistics Income Fund also announced that it was partnering with Kanto Group in a joint venture, KPCT Advanced Chemicals LLC, for its high purity sulphuric acid plant in Casa Grande, which is expected to cost between $175 million and $250 million and start production by 2024, according to the announcement. Chemtrade Logistics Inc. is a leading manufacturer of ultrapure sulphuric acid in North America, the company said. The joint venture’s facility will also have a total annual capacity of 100,000 metric tons of electronic grade acid. Detailed engineering plans and cost estimates will be finalized by the end of this year, the companies said, adding that the high-purity production process will be based on Kanto Group technology that’s currently used in Taiwan and Japan. Kanto currently has plants that operate in Taiwan but is building a facility in Arizona to support the growing semiconductor industry in the U.S. amid a global shortage of chips. Manufacturers and state leaders are relying on federal funding to support the industry’s growth and supply chain ecosystem in Arizona and compete with countries dominating in the sector.

Scottsdale-based Land Advisors Organization facilitated the sale of the 50 acres of farmland that Kanto purchased for a total of $3.7 million in July. Kirk McCarville and Trey Davis of Land Advisors represented the land sellers, San Carlos 198 LLC, which sold 26 acres for $1.7 million, and Kendler Family Trust, which sold 24 acres for $1.9 million. The property Kanto purchased is close to the Pinal County Tech Park, a 1,064-acre, rail-served park, and the Central Arizona Commerce Park, where Lucid Motors’ factory is located. Land Advisors Organization said Pinal County Tech Park has received significant interest from companies in the semiconductor supply chain and electric vehicle manufacturing suppliers in recent months. Like other companies, Kanto, the sixth semiconductor supplier to choose the city, picked Casa Grande because of the competitive land price, efficient rail infrastructure, housing affordability and high-quality schools, McCarville said. The chemical supplier works with Kanto Chemical Japan to build manufacturing plants with state-of-theart clean rooms, as well as research and development equipment in Taiwan. McCarville and Davis have represented Pinal County Tech Park, Central Arizona Commerce Park and Barnes Farm Industrial Area in four other deals. By Audrey Jensen – Reporter, Phoenix Business Journal

The company won the contract from AerSale, a Florida-based company that provides integrated aftermarket services and products for airlines operating jets from Boeing, Airbus and McDonell Douglas. The deal calls for Universal Avionics to supply AerSale’s ClearVision enhanced flight vision system (EFVS). AerSale’s EFVS system is part of its AerAware installation package and includes a head-wearable display and cameras for the Boeing 737NG airplane. “The ClearVision EFVS solution brings substantial capabilities to the 737NG and has demonstrated its advantages to operations including the ability to overcome degraded visibility solutions during any time of day,” said Door Yahav, CEO of Universal Avionics, in a statement. “I believe that the ability to allow aircraft to operate in conditions well below published minimums is a game-changer.” The system helps pilots at night and in low visibility conditions, and it can help them move in and out of airports faster, AerSale said. The technology allows pilots and co-pilots to operate with their heads up while still able to monitor flight information and maintain three-dimensional situational awareness, the company said.

Magnolia Street | Phoenix, AZ 85034 Raytheon, Northrop Grumman Complete Second Flight In Joint Hypersonic Weapon Project Working together on a hypersonic weapon for the U.S. Department of Defense, Raytheon Missiles & Defense and Northrop Grumman said they’ve completed another successful flight. The two companies — both major defense contractors in Arizona — have been working jointly since 2019 on the scramjet-powered Hypersonic Air-breathing Weapon Concept, or HAWC, for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the U.S. Air Force. Raytheon has been in charge of the aircraft’s overall design, while Northrop Grumman has provided the scramjet engine. During the latest test flight in early July — which built on insights gained after the project’s first flight in September 2021 — the engine took the vehicle to speeds greater than Mach 5, or five times the speed of sound, for more than 300 nautical miles as it reached altitudes higher than 60,000 feet. Raytheon said that the test flight engineers put the HAWC on a trajectory that was deliberately designed to put the vehicle under stress to test its limits and validate digital models used to predict and increase performance of the system. Scramjet engines work by using high vehicle speed to forcibly compress incoming air before combustion to achieve sustained high-speed flights — hence the term “air-breathing.” They run on a widely available fuel and don’t need onboard oxidizers, both of which make for a safe, efficient and tactically sized long-range

hypersonic weapon, Raytheon said. Besides the obvious advantage hypersonic weapons have in reaching targets quickly, their speeds and maneuverability can also potentially evade defense systems, the companies said. They said that airbreathing hypersonic weapons are the next generation of tactical missile systems, and both companies will use the work they’re doing now to produce such weapons. In addition to working on an effective hypersonic weapon system, Raytheon and Northrop Grumman are also working on a missile meant to knock out hypersonic threats in mid-flight. The two companies recently were awarded a contract on their project to develop a Glide Phase Interceptor that would be able to stop hypersonic weapons while in their glide phase, which is the middle portion of their flight en route to targets.

Swiss Autonomous Flight Startup Daedalean Establishes First USOffice In Phoenix Daedalean, an autonomous flight startup based in Switzerland, has chosen Phoenix for its first office in the United States, due in part to the copious sunshine. Daedalean is developing systems and software that are expected to turn aircraft into autonomous vehicles that can fly on their own. The company, which was founded in 2016, is aiming to launch its first commercial product with Florida-based Avidyne by the end of this year.

The new Phoenix office is under the direction of Yemaya Bordain, a Valley resident who previously served as a global sales director at Intel Corp., specifically around the internet of things and urban air mobility.“Phoenix is at the forefront of the autonomous mobility revolution,” she said in an interview. “Arizona has a relatively robust aerospace market with over 60 airports and also houses top aerospace companies.” Bordain noted that Raytheon, Northrop Grumman, L3Harris and other aerospace companies have teams in the Valley, many of whom she worked with when she was at Intel.She also cited Waymo’s presence in the Valley, currently the only place in the world where the company’s autonomous car travel is open to the public. Arizona’s signature sunshine and clear skies also make it an ideal place to test AV flying ability. “I believe in the coming Piranha years and decades weIronworkers are going to be keeping up with the Jetsons,” she said, referencing the cartoon set in the year 2062 that features flying cars. “As these systems scale and as our air space becomes more crowded, we just do not have enough pilots in order to support this market.” Daedalean’s AV systems and software are expected to go live with its first commercial client by the end of this year, for use in both fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters. “Currently, we are working hard with a partner, Avidyne, on receiving certification for our first product,” co-founder Anna Chernova said. “And as far as we know, this will be the world’sCall first for certified system for civil aviation with a nonspecial pricing trivial safety case that has a machine-learned component through the end of the year for AI assistance to a human pilot.

Manufacturing Technologies Inc. (MTI) Certifies To AS9100 Revision D With The Help of Consulting Group BMSC Manufacturing Technologies Inc. (MTI) just certified to AS9100D / ISO 9001:2015 with the help of consulting group BMSC. Lucas Bulow, 2nd Generation family member running the business purchased by Chuck, Lucas’ father, says, “We contacted Bretta Kelly, owner of BMSC in 2021, but didn’t move forward at that time. Once we made the decision to fast track our AS9100 Certification this year, we contracted with BMSC in February. Then, during the process of preparing for Certification, we had a Government audit in early April, a Stage 1 AS9100 audit at the end of April, and our Stage 2 AS9100 audit on May 31st.” Ty Haguewood, General Manager for the company, says, “We worked the entire Memorial Day weekend; we were just that determined to get the AS9100 certification completed.” Here is what the Key Notes documented in their respective summaries of MTI: Government Audit: “MTI has advanced cutting edge technology” AS9100 Revision D Audit:“MTI has young leadership and the top management team has daily involvement” As owner of the company for the past 25 years, Chuck still comes to work every day, Lucas says, adding, “Rather than managing day to day operations, Chuck is a mentor and a coach to Ty and me. He has helped us to become competent in managing day to day operations, in working with our employees as well as with our customers.” Ty adds, “Chuck has always encouraged us to take risks to better the company. He won’t let us fail, but he has trained us to figure things out for ourselves.” Ty says, “There are very few owners you will meet in this industry who are as technically competent as Lucas. He is on the shop floor every day machining parts, and he truly understands the need to continue to adopt new machining technology. We buy new machines every year, with our most recent purchases including the MAKINO U6 WIRE EDM. We also just took possession of our newest Haas machine, the Haas VF3-SS high-performance super-speed vertical machining center with a Fanuc robot. We will be trained on the Fanuc robot in the next month or so.” As if preparing for AS9100 Revision D in such a tight timeframe wasn’t A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

challenging enough, the c o m p a n y upgraded their ERP system to JobBoss 2. Lucas says, “ Wo r k i n g w i t h BMSC to prepare for AS9100 was an outstanding experience. Going forward, BMSC will help us with our Annual Audits. They helped teach our team how to think about keeping issues from becoming big issues, how to identify issues up front and how to fix them.” Ty says, “What I have heard about other ISO and AS9100 consultants is that they overcomplicate things; they write a system that doesn’t match how you do business. With BMSC owner Bretta Kelly and her colleague Debbie Hart, before they started helping us to write our system, they observed our company employees in their day to day operations, and they helped us to write a simplified business system based upon what we do.” After their Stage 2 audit in May, the company successfully certified to AS9100 Revision D. Asked whether the AS9100 certification process helped MTI to better themselves, both Lucas and Ty unequivocally agreed it was beneficial to their business. Ty says, “It helped us with document control. With BMSC, we put what we do into a system to flow down, and this will help not just with our long term employees but also with onboarding our new employees.” Lucas adds, “We are doing a much better job of using metrics to drive performance. As an example, we are now measuring and documenting employee competence. With new inexperienced machinists, we help train them and then we document when they achieve a new milestone. This isn’t just helpful for the business; it is invaluable to the employees.” Ty says that through the certification process, MTI was able to take one 16 page procedure down to 2 pages. Lucas and Ty highly recommend BMSC!

Both are part of NASA’s Artemis missions, which has goal of landing the first woman and first person of color on the moon and establishing the first long-term presence on the moon. NASA is working with commercial and international partners to establish the Gateway, and Solstar’s spaceflightproven communications technologies have been tested on previous Blue Origin New Shepard and UP Aerospace spaceflight launches. In addition to the wireless access point, which is designed to provide connections similar to a local network on a commercial airplane, Solstar has developed what it calls the Deke Space Communicator. This technology is meant to provide reliable, secure two-way persistent communication between a launch vehicle and orbiting assets. Last year, the company opened a crowdfunding campaign on WeFunder. The company was also crowned champion of our inaugural Inno Madness competition.By Chris Keller - Albuquerque Business News

Pinal County City Looks To Expand Industrial Growth Across Hundreds Of Acres The city of Casa Grande is looking to grow its industrial corridor by more than 800 acres in the near future.Through four separate applications, the city is in the process of redesignating 823 acres of rural land for future industrial and manufacturing development south of its existing industrial center. The large sites are generally located near the southwest corner of Clayton and Ethington roads just south of the Maricopa-Casa Grande Highway and are part of a future industrial growth area for the city. The growing industrial corridor is home to Lucid Motors’ plant, which is undergoing a major expansion, Kohler Co.’s planned manufacturing facility and numerous semiconductor suppliers that have plans to build in the area. Casa Grande’s planning commission gave its unanimous support for the rezoning changes in Casa Grande’s general plan, which is required by state law and guides the city’s growth, in early August. Its plan will help the city speed up the process to open more land in the area up for industrial development. “To support the required growth, the city will need to expand and/or acquire a minimum of 2,311 additional acres of manufacturing and industrial land,” city documents said. “However, if the current rate of development in the city’s industrial area continues at a similar pace as it is today that number could be significantly larger.” A city report also said that Arizona and the Casa Grande trade area have seen “tremendous growth” in a variety of industries over the past decade.

It also said pressure to increase capacity for logistics and manufacturing is a “positive, but significant challenge for the state.” During the meeting on Aug. 4, the city said that it was initially against the proposal due to recent wastewater capacity issues but has since created a new plan to support the anticipated growth of the area. “We were not supporting this amendment and growth phase because we didn’t think that we would have the capacity to handle additional growth,” the city said during the meeting. “We have since that time come up with a plan to increase that capacity that we’re confident will be on a schedule that will be quicker than any of the development that could potentially happen on these sites due to the review timeframes of site plans and infrastructure improvements that they would have to make.” Recently, plans have been unveiled for new projects such as semiconductor suppliers Kanto-PPC Inc., Solvay Corp. Inc. and Chang Chun Group, which are all planning to build facilities in the city. By Audrey Jensen – Phoenix Business Journal
