Editors Corner “The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.”- William A. Ward In my early years at Intel, a friend of mine had a relative who was studying business/marketing at Arizona State University. She asked if I could help her relative get a summer internship with my marketing department. The student wasn’t to be paid – it would be a free internship for my company. I was excited about the prospect and was thinking up projects my team and I would love to work on but couldn’t because we didn’t have the resources. My manager did not allow the informal internship. What, you say? A free body? It turns out that this type of response is not at all unusual. For one, it wasn’t part of a structured internship program within Intel. But I think more importantly, people (managers) often don’t like mentoring or training others who lack experience. I have long been part of an Arizona Apprenticeship program for aspiring machinists. These individuals take a test to ascertain their mechanical aptitude. They are also interviewed in person to gauge their ‘people’ skills. Once they pass, it is the association’s responsibility to get them paired with a machine shop. This machine shop will pay a low wage, commensurate with the new employee’s lack of experience, and they will be flexible with the employee’s formal classes that he or she attends offsite. What was the association’s most difficult challenge? Getting machine managers willing to take on new interns. At Intel, we lost because of our unwillingness to take on an unpaid intern. At machine shops, managers lose every day when they too are unwilling to take on aspiring machinists. Not only did they lose the potential for a great new employee, but they lost out on the opportunity to help develop a superior teacher/mentor in their business. Manufacturing today is one of the best and fast growing industries.In their just released update, The Institute for Supply Management (ISM) Report shows the Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) rose 1.2 percentage points to 61.1% in September, and the overall economy expanded for the 16th consecutive month. A PMI reading above 50% indicates the manufacturing economy is expanding, and a reading of 61.1% is extraordinary. We hear it over and over again — difficulties in attracting and retaining workers — continue to limit manufacturing growth potential. In a article titled The Jobs Are There. Where Is the Training?, the author says that, just months ago, the Department of Labor showed 889,000 unfilled manufacturing jobs. The author suggests that we will need apprentice training, yet he says that the manufacturing sector is not investing in this training. The total annual number of registered apprentices in manufacturing has dropped from around 20,950 in 2001 to 15,510 in 2020. Meanwhile, he adds, apprenticeships in other sectors like construction are growing. What does this mean to you as a precision manufacturing business manager? Trained employees won’t likely just show up at your door. If you want your business to thrive into the next decade and longer, you must do something to invest in your next generation employees. Find the employee(s) who have a gift in teaching others. Help them to become the best teachers that they can be. It will be worth it, I am confident. In closing, God bless our troops, and I wish you all a wonderful end of year and joyous holidays.

Creedbilt Inc. Adds 3D Printing To Their Services Creedbilt is pleased to announce that it has added 3D printing to the list of services it offers its customers with the addition of the Markforged X7 and Mark Two printers. Jeremy Creed, 3rd generation family member in the company, says, “We started looking into 3D printers to print some of the smaller items we already produce at lower costs. Instead of waterjet cutting, forming and powdercoating these parts, we can just print them. This frees up the waterjet to cut other materials for our customers, and saves time overall not having to form and powdercoat parts. The Markforged X7 is capable of producing parts using an aerospace approved Onyx FR-A material. The Markforged X7 and the Markforged Mark Two are both able to reinforce parts using fiberglass, Kevlar or continuous carbon fiber-making these stronger than aluminum.” He continued, “Having the 2 printers in-house helps change our manufacturing paradigm.

Global Manufacturing FirstReport: Light F-35 Helmet Test A SuccessIndustry Output To Hit $41.9 Tn in 2021 Interact Analysis has released the latest update of the global Manufacturing Industry Output Tracker (MIO). The research shows that recovery in 2021 will be muted, following a far smaller contraction in 2020 than had initially been predicted. Meanwhile, the ongoing semiconductor shortage—coupled with the continued spread of the Delta variant, rising freight costs, and growing worker shortages— will create ongoing problems for all manufacturers. Per Interact Analysis, the semiconductor shortage can be attributed to several factors, but the biggest impact comes from the automotive industry.

WE'RE LOOKING FORWARD TO MEETING AND EXCEEDING YOUR EXPECTATIONS for machine builders. The reason being that the experience of having to cope with large numbers of workers needing to social distance and self-isolate in 2020 has caused many manufacturers to look at how they will cope with similar events in future, and industrial automation clearly offers an important solution for companies trying to respond to these problems.” “Interestingly, we also predict non-manufacturing machinery segments to achieve a CAGR of 3 to 4% between 2021 and 2025, of which the mining and farming machinery markets will achieve the highest growth of 5.3% and 5.1% respectively.”

General Dynamics Introduces New Badger Software-Defined Radio Produced at the company’s Scottsdale, Arizona facility, the Badger is a compact, 2-channel software-defined radio that provides Multiple Independent Levels of Security (MILS) for ship-to-ship and ship-to-shore voice and data communications. It is the only radio available that provides High Frequency (HF), Very High Frequency (VHF), Ultra High Frequency (UHF) and SATCOM Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) waveform capability. The

integration of MUOS significantly enhances beyond line-of-sight, or satellite voice and data communications. Badger’s software-defined, flexible open architecture enables future next-generation communications including waveforms, encryption algorithms and advanced network connectivity to be easily incorporated without redesign. Similar to a commercial smartphone, this approach simplifies the incorporation of new features and functions by enabling the radio to be upgraded in the field without having to take it out of service, resulting in significant time and cost savings. In addition, the Badger’s Voice over IP (VoIP) audio capability modernizes and simplifies platform audio distribution using network connectivity. The Badger is based on the long history of General Dynamics’ Digital Modular Radio (DMR). With over 900 radios delivered, DMR provides secure communications aboard U.S. Navy surface and sub surface vessels, as well as fixed sites. At a quarter of the size of DMR, Badger provides the waveforms and flexibility of the DMR in a compact platform. A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

After Pandemic-Related 'Restructuring,' Chandler-Based Local Motors Is Gearing Up For Major Growth Chandler-based Local Motors, a company that manufactures an autonomous shuttle called Olli, recently announced that Vikrant Aggarwal would be stepping in as the company’s new CEO. In an interview with AZ Inno, Aggarwal said the company is set for new growth in the next 12 to 18 months following employee layoffs during the Covid-19 pandemic. Aggarwal joined Local Motors in 2019 as the company’s chief operating officer and he replaces Jay Rogers, the founder of Local Motors, who will move into an advisory role as non-executive vice chairman of the board. Before joining the Local Motors staff, Aggarwal worked at Cummins Inc., a Fortune 500 company that designs and builds engines and power generators. Aggarwal said the company was adversely affected during the pandemic but that it is now well positioned to keep growing. Automakers have been impacted by global supply issues, especially lacking semiconductors, but Aggarwal said Local Motors is in no better or worse shape than other automotive manufacturers.

The company now employs about 75 people, down from 145 in 2019, with about 20% or 30% of its staff in Arizona, a few remote workers and the majority in Tennessee. The company relocated and expanded its Chandler HQ in late 2020. “We have grown revenue year over year, even during Covid,” he said. “When I started in 2019, we were just starting to have some revenue. Last year, we had minimal revenue, and this year we're going to grow the revenue by fivefold. And the expectation is that we grow the revenue three to four fold in the next year.” That growth will be aided by an investment from GameAbove Mobility — a division of Florida-based CapStone Holdings Inc. — which was announced in May. T The Olli transport is currently deployed in the U.S., Canada, the European Union and in some parts of Asia, and that global perspective has led Aggarwal to a conclusion: The U.S. is trailing Europe in terms of enabling mobility companies. Olli vehicles conduct so-called first and last

The current regulatory environment in the U.S. treats most autonomous vehicles the same way and doesn't make distinctions between slow speed shuttles like Olli and vehicles designed to traverse highways at faster speeds. Aggarwal said Local Motors customers generally fit into three categories: • • •

Industrial users shuttling people between buildings on a hospital campus or multi-structure complex. Mobility service providers like Canada’s AutoGuardian, which will soon deploy Olli alongside its other smart mobility solutions. Large transportation providers that integrate Olli among other, existing transport options.

Some prospective riders are still hesitant to hop on an autonomous Olli shuttle, Aggarwal said, but he added that all shuttles have a real live human attendant onboard and about 90% of riders report being satisfied with the experience once the ride concludes. By Andy Blye - Reporter

Hertz To Buy 100,000 Electric Vehicles From Tesla Car rental company Hertz announced Monday it will purchase 100,000 Tesla Model 3s by the end of 2o22 and install thousands of chargers across the United States as part of the company’s turn toward electric vehicles. Why it matters: It’s a major purchase for Hertz, which filed for bankruptcy last year because of the coronavirus pandemic, and a major sale for Tesla, coming just after it reported its highest-ever quarterly profit despite global

supply chain problems. Hertz also said it will be partnering with seven-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady to promote its shift toward EVs. What they’re saying: “Electric vehicles are now mainstream, and we’ve only just begun to see rising global demand,” said Mark Fields, Hertz’ interim CEO. “The new Hertz is going to lead the way as a mobility company, starting with the largest EV rental fleet in North America and a commitment to grow our EV fleet and provide the best rental and recharging experience for leisure and business customers around the world,” Fields added. The big picture: No price was given for the order, but a new Tesla Model 3 is more than $40,000, meaning the purchase could be at least $4 billion. The company said it’s creating a fleet of EVs because of growing consumer interest in the vehicles and for the climate change benefits of the technology. A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

Woman Owned Service & Sales Inc. (SSI) Celebrates Half A Century In Business. Offering Its Customers Tube Bending, Machining and Fabrication, All In-House. combined, and Scott and Tammy have been running the company for the past 20 years.

Service & Sales, Incorporated (SSI) celebrated 50 years (yes, that is ½ century!) last year. And despite one of the most disruptive years in all of our lifetimes, Service & Sales’ revenue growth was nothing short of explosive last year, at more than 30%. The company was founded in 1970 by Joe Stepanski, an accountant by education. Today, the company, a Small Woman owned Precision manufacturing entity, is run by Joe’s daughter, Tammy Stepanski, and Scott Papp. Based in Tempe, Arizona, SSI’s customers are nearly all Tier 1 OEMs in the aerospace and defense industries (Boeing, MD Helicopter, Raytheon, Collins Aerospace (now a Raytheon subsidiary), Northrup Grumman, SpaceX, and the Federal Government). In addition to being Small Woman-Owned, it differentiates itself with its capabilities, its quality, and its business philosophy. Scott Papp, president of operations for the company, says, “Not only are we specialists in tube bending and complete tube assemblies, but we also offer inhouse fabrication and machining, as well as machined assemblies. Literally the only thing we outsource is special processing.” Herb Lawrence, long term employee and sales manager says that customers often seek SSI out specifically for their tube bending/assembly capabilities, and then expand their relationship with the company when they learn about their fabrication and CNC precision machining capabilities. SSI’s customers span the entire United States, and they are successfully diversified in that no one customer dominates their business. Superior employees who join the SSI team tend to remain with the company. Tammy says, “Overall our employees average 12 years with the company, and more than 1/3 of our workforce has been with us for 15+ years.” The management team of Tammy, Herb, and Scott has been with the company for more than 33 years A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

• 34 • Nov / Dec 2021

As a long-term supplier to so many Tier 1 OEMs in the aerospace and defense industries, it is no surprise that SSI was early in its ISO/ AS9100 certifications and NADCAP accreditations. Tammy says, “When the customers who we’ve been building products for years come to tour our facility, they often remark that they thought we were a much bigger company than we are.” She adds, “Not only have our customers helped us to see the value of ISO/AS9100 certifications years before it became a requisite to doing business with them, but even the software and systems we use (CATIA 3D CAD design software and PPAP (Production Part Approval Process)) are more typically utilized in much larger manufacturing entities.” Supply and resource constraints have of late made it difficult for SSI to earn the A+ report cards they are accustomed to receiving from their customers for delivery but this has never hindered their quality ratings (A+). In fact, the company is a 3 Time Boeing Performance Excellence Award Winner. Herb says, “We have been fortunate to have earned long term contracts with many of our customers, and this has enabled us to feel confident in investing into the business. Over the past decade, we doubled our facility, from 15,000 square feet to 30,000 square feet. We have also heavily invested in new machines, new tools, and new software. These investments have paid off as our customers have increasingly entrusted us with much more complex parts than ever before.” SSI is so closely aligned with some of their customers that the two act as teams on specific projects, where they host weekly meetings with engineering and purchasing team members.

SSI has a philosophy that you don’t often encounter. Tammy says, “We are selective in the business that we take on, even when it’s one of our long term customers who is asking us to take on an additional project.” This may sound counterintuitive t o a c o m p a n y ’s ongoing growth and success, but in fact SSI has adopted this philosophy specifically so that they can continue to provide best in class products and service. Too many shops who can’t say no to customers continue to add new projects, and their quality and on-time delivery spiral downward. Scott says, “We want to stay under 50 employees, and maintain slow and manageable growth so that we can continue to exceed our customers’ expectations.” SSI’s willingness to add new technologies and machines to their business additionally shields them to some extent from ever growing workforce availability issues. Tammy says that as a result of these capital improvements they have grown revenue by nearly 60% in the same period that they have reduced headcount by more than 7%. Scott says SSI will continue its adoption of automation as workforce issues will likely plague US manufacturing for the foreseeable future. New customers come to SSI for a variety of reasons; occasionally they are working on a government project and contracting with a WomanOwned business is advantageous, but more often they come to SSI for their tube bending and tube assembly expertise. Tammy says, “Our customers benefit from competitive pricing and superior quality and delivery with all of their tube bending needs.” She adds, “Often our customers add to the number of parts or assemblies they outsource to us when they learn that we do machining and fabrication in-house.” Herb says that one of the benefits SSI’s customers value is that the company guarantees thorough documentation of all operations from raw material purchasing through the final packaging to your most demanding specifications. People join and stay at SSI because it is a great place to work. The team is always looking to add superior team members. If you are a company that benefits from adding a Woman-Owned precision manufacturing entity to your list of suppliers, one which offers not just tube bending, but who also offers precision machining and fabrication, one which is ISO/AS9100 certified and NADCAP accredited, contact SSI at: 480968-9084 or email Herb Lawrence at You can also visit their website at

Hear From AN SSI Customer: “As Collins Aerospace’s Supply Chain Manager, I work with key suppliers to help them improve their quality or delivery with our programs. SSI was a long term supplier to our company, and during COVID, we had to bring a substantial amount of work back from overseas. We, quite frankly, overloaded SSI with additional work as a result of the project returning to the states. With all this new work, it was natural for us to utilize the best suppliers we had, and this included SSI. The critical parts that we tasked to SSI were precision machined parts that are used in multiple locations on the F-35 lading systems. SSI was chosen for this new work because they are a crucial supplier and a trusted one with their historically strong performance. SSI took on much of the new work we requested, and initially, this caused some delivery issues (which is why I first started working with them). We built a team that consisted of Collins engineers and procurement, and a team from SSI that Herb Lawrence managed. Fast forward to months later. SSI has been nothing less than fantastic. In my 10+ years working with upwards of 100 suppliers, SSI is one of the best suppliers I have had the pleasure to work with. From the time we started working with SSI on these new projects, what I found superior in SSI was the extremely positive attitude of the ownership and management team. They were always very personal and professional. On top of this, they have very good longevity of their employees. No matter how automated a small manufacturing entity gets, there will always be some aspect of ‘tribal knowledge’. SSI retains this because their employee retention is outstanding. SSI manufactures the following parts that go on the F-35 Landing gears: Links; Levers; Bulkheads; Spacers; Tube Assemblies; Rods; Pins; Cams; Fittings; Guides To sum it up, SSI has a strong customer-focused attitude with an eye for high quality and delivery and is quick to embrace a shared vision with its supply chain in pursuit of customer satisfaction. I can’t say enough good things about SSI. They are exceptional.” Ryan, Supply Chain

MICRO-TRONICS – MORE THAN JUST AN EDM SHOP New Jersey Manufacturer's Expansion Into New Mexico To Add More Than 300 jobs An energy manufacturer that creates wire cables to help power solar and wind energy units will expand its manufacturing presence into New Mexico. The expansion of New Jersey-based Wind Turbine Energy Corp. is expected to bring 315 jobs to the state. Known as WTEC Energy Innovation, the company will move into a facility in Chamberino in Doña Ana County. The 68,000-square-foot facility had been used to process pet food until about 2014. Once renovated, WTEC Energy Innovation will begin manufacturing steel-wire cables. The company plans to use the facility to eventually produce wind towers. “We have said all along that these policies will pay off — creating real jobs for real New Mexicans,” Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham said. “WTEC is coming to Southern New Mexico, along with 315 new jobs, because of our commitment to supporting manufacturing businesses that help us diversify the economy and boost energy innovation and transition.” The company's expansion is expected to have an economic impact of $409 million over the next 10 years. In turn, the state has also dedicated $2 million in Local Economic Development Act incentives. LEDA incentives are used as a closing fund to grow existing New Mexico businesses and recruit others to the state.

at the facility. Doña Ana County will act as the fiscal agent for the money and disperse it to WTEC when certain benchmarks are met. In addition to LEDA money, El Paso Electric New Mexico Economic Development also pledged $100,000 for the project. Hiring for the manufacturing facility is expected to begin in early 2022 and annual salaries will start at $37,000, the state’s Economic Development Department said. All 315 employee openings are expected to be filled by 2027. The company, which was founded in 2002, chose New Mexico over Texas due to a more “collaborative business climate,” the state's Economic Development Department said. New Mexico also offered closer proximity to the growing solar and wind sector in the Western portion of the United States. By Matt Narvaiz – Reporter, Albuquerque Business First

What Will It Take For Electric Vehicles To Create Jobs, Not Cut Them? When President Joe Biden announced his multitrillion-dollar jobs plan in March, it included nearly $175 billion in spending to encourage Americans to buy electric vehicles.The money would help ensure “that these vehicles are affordable for all families and manufactured by workers with good jobs,” the White House wrote at the time. Now, as Biden’s plan wends its way through Congress, a liberal think tank has tried to flesh out the number of jobs to be gained or lost in the transition away from internalcombustion vehicles. The report, released by the Economic Policy Institute, concluded that it would take government subsidies focused on developing a domestic supply chain and increasing demand for U.S.-made vehicles to avoid job losses. It found that without additional government investment, the industry could lose about 75,000 jobs by 2030, the year by which Biden wants half the new vehicles sold in the country to be electric. By contrast, the report said, if government subsidies were targeted to increase the portion of electric vehicle components that are manufactured domestically, and to increase the market share of U.S.-made vehicles, the industry could add about 150,000 jobs by the end of the decade. “That’s the payoff — making the sector a center of good jobs again,” said Josh Bivens, an economist. “If we don’t try to react proactively with good policy we’ll see continued downward pressure on the number of good jobs.” A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

• 38 • Nov / Dec 2021

Looming over the transition to electric vehicles is the fact that they have substantially fewer moving parts than gasoline-powered ones and require less labor to manufacture — about 30% less, according to figures from Ford Motor. The vehiclemanufacturing industry employs a little under 1 million people domestically, including suppliers. There are essentially two ways to offset the projected job losses: to increase the proportion of each vehicle’s parts that are made domestically — specifically in the powertrain— and to sell more vehicles assembled in the United States. Bivens and his co-author, James Barrett, an economic consultant, examine the effects of doing both. They note that roughly three-quarters of the parts in the powertrain for a U.S.-made gasoline vehicle are produced domestically, versus less than half of the parts in the powertrain of a U.S.-made electric vehicle. Raising the proportion of domestic content in electric vehicles so that it mirrors gas-powered ones could save tens of thousands of jobs a year, they estimate — potentially more than half the likely job losses that would arise without additional government action. But to transform likely job deficits into job gains, Barrett and Bivens find, it is necessary to increase the market share of U.S.-made vehicles. According to the study, the percentage of vehicles sold in the United States that are made domestically has hovered around 50% over the past decade. If it were to rise to 60%, the authors conclude, the industry could gain more than 100,000 jobs in 2030. If market share were instead to drop to 40% by the end of the decade and there were no increase in the domestic content of electric vehicle powertrains, the industry could lose

The Jobs Are There. Where Is the Training? A 2018 study by Deloitte and the Manufacturing Institute predicted that U.S. manufacturing would have 2.1 million unfilled jobs by 2030. In July 2021, the Department of Labor Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS) showed 889,000 unfilled manufacturing jobs. I tried to find out how many of these unfilled jobs are skilled vs. unskilled, but nobody I talked to at the DOL had any idea. In fact, I couldn’t find anyone in government or industry who had any idea what kinds of manufacturing jobs are going unfilled.

because they don’ believe they’ll get a good return on investment, and they also don’t want to certify journeymen because the employees would have the skills to shop for better jobs. Padnos said 70% of his members are shops with less than 40 employees and cannot afford the time or money to invest in apprentice training. My assumption is that if a good percentage of these jobs are highly skilled, then we will need advanced or long-term training like apprentice training. However, it appears that the manufacturing sector is not investing in apprentice, training. I have been following the Office of Apprenticeship training’s website since 2001 and the total annual number of registered apprentices in manufacturing has dropped from around 20,950 in 2001 to 15,510 in 2020. Meanwhile, apprenticeships in other sectors like construction are growing. Skilled Worker Shortages Are a 3-Pronged Problem. 1. Entry-level workers. According to the Deloitte/MI survey “These are the jobs that do not require technical know-how or industry knowledge, such as team assemblers, production work helpers and handheld tool cutters and trimmers.” They say that manufacturers are willing to pay $15.50 per hour, but that “applications are not pouring in.” It is a problem because new workers without experience can get a job at Amazon for $18 an hour starting pay with up to a $3,000 signing bonus. Wages are going up in many service industries, and $15.50/hour may not be enough to interest a Starbucks employee to make the switch.

2. Semi-skilled workers. These are So, I decided to call some manufacturing associations to see whether they knew. jobs like CNC machine operators, Greg Jones of the Association of Manufacturing Technology thinks it is 75% highly welders, drill press operator, skilled jobs and 25% unskilled. He also believes that apprentice programs should assemblers, grinders machine be reduced in hours and be competency-based. operators and tenders, which require Bill Padnos of the National Tooling and Machining Association thinks that most classroom and hands-on training unfilled jobs are middle-skill jobs and that many require apprentice training.

The Economic Policy Institute says that the passage of President Joe Biden‘s infrastructure and reconciliation bills would create 556,000 new manufacturing jobs. It looks like the skilled worker shortage may get a lot worse before it gets better. Strategies Used for decades Instead of investing in long-term training, corporations have been trying to solve the skilled worker shortage with stopgap measures:


Hiring H-1B foreign visa workers: These visas are used mostly for engineers and in the high-tech industries and are limited to 85,000 new jobs per year. Outsourcing: Moving production and jobs to low-cost countries.

3. Highly skilled jobs. Although apprentice training is not growing in U.S. manufacturing, many industries still need journeyman workers. Penn United in Cabot, Pa., is a good example of a company with successful apprentice training. They have 90 apprentices in training today and need more. They believe that to truly become a productive machinist, students must learn all the manual machining skills first before learning CNC. Their journeyman machinists become proficient in 28 different skills and are capable of operating a wide variety of machine tools. A January 2020 training survey by the Manufacturing Institute shows that the average number of hours of training, per employee, among their members is 27.7 hours per year. and for new employees it was 42.9 hours per year. The training survey also shows that only 32% of members have apprentice training programs. The study says that “75% of industrial organizations identified reskilling the workforce as important or very important for their success over the next year, A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

Automating: There has been a huge investment in automation such as robots, packaging machines, and automated production lines. But not enough workers can troubleshoot, operate and maintain the automation, which has added to the skilledworker shortage. Buying services: There are not enoughtool and die and moldmaking shops in the U.S. today. Corporations buy these services from foreign companies. Poaching trained workers: For many years, corporations have been stealing trained workers from their suppliers by offering higher pay and benefits But these strategies are not enough to keep U.S. manufacturing thriving. From my interviews with leaders of manufacturing associations, I have concluded that despite the need, many manufacturers are unwilling to fund long-term training programs and instead want short-term training.

Why Arizona Is On Even More California Businesses’ Relocation List It doesn’t matter if your business is large and established or small and growing. Arizona is considered a national hotspot for businesses and entrepreneurs everywhere, especially those coming from California. The advantages of operating a business in Arizona greatly outweigh the disadvantages. Businesses have been planning to move to the Grand Canyon State within the last several years to take the opportunity to run their organization in a new environment with incentives and support. If large companies in one of the biggest states in the country can switch over, so can many others. Companies love nothing more than to decrease the amount of taxes they have to pay. Arizona has lower business taxes and general taxes, especially compared to some of its neighboring states. Corporations can also take advantage of tax incentives for setting up in enterprise zones.

real estate is likely to be cheaper; Arizona consumers may be likely to spend more money with companies, and they can offer a competitive salary to Arizona residents looking for work. While there are numerous advantages for large companies moving to Arizona, local businesses and startups can have plenty to gain as well. Local businesses in Arizona don’t have to fear corporate giants coming to town because their businesses can experience growth from the California migration. The increase in population could mean more traffic for local businesses, especially in the bigger cities or areas California residents choose to reside.

Tech is also evolving in the state of Arizona just like other states looking to house the next Silicon Valley. Large tech companies or companies that own widely-used apps may have had their eyes on Arizona’s growing economy. Companies like Doordash have already made the decision to be headquartered out of Arizona.

More local customers would mean more demand. Whether a local has the ability to increase supply or not, it can be a positive to experience increased demand. If supply cannot be increased, then local businesses can increase pricing just slightly to obtain a higher supply or products. If raising prices to meet the new demand isn’t too favorable, then one of the many Arizona business resources could be of aid.

Lower costs of living have also been a major selling point for companies as well due to multiple smaller advantages. Business

There are tons more advantages for businesses looking to expand or make Arizona their home,

Tucson Space Company Signs Deal To Build, Launch Satellites For Internet-Of-Things Tech Provider Tucson-based space transportation tech startup Phantom Space Corp. has signed a deal to manufacture and launch dozens of satellites for internet-of-things platform maker Ingenu Inc. The deal calls for the production of 72 satellites. Phantom will be in charge of system integration on the craft and getting them into space.Financial details of the agreement were not made public. Once in orbit, the satellites are intended to give Ingenu the ability to offer its internet of things, or IoT, and machine-to-machine products to connect equipment anywhere on earth. Currently, the San Diego company uses its own low power wide area network technology, which in the past decade has been deployed in more than 50 places on five continents. The agreement moves Phantom Space further toward its goal of mass manufacturing rockets and satellites and using its technology to lower barriers to space access for A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

Earlier this year, Phantom Space raised $5 million in seed funding to help it toward that goal. "Ingenu prides themselves on turning disruptive innovation into practical application, and we're excited to help them achieve this," Cantrell said in the statement. "By working with a company like Ingenu, we are partnering to deliver Ingenu's value into a space platform where it can have a worldwide impact on their customers. This partnership brings both of us closer to our goal of providing the muchneeded disruptive benefits of space technology directly to the consumer." Ingenu CEO Alvaro Gazzolo said working with Phantom gives it a cutting-edge technology option while also keeping costs under control. “We'll be able to build and operate a system of satellites that makes it possible for us to offer people full endto-end solutions anywhere on earth and complement existing customers' terrestrial networks. Nothing of the sort has ever been done up until now," Gazzolo said in a statement. Ingenu said its initial focus using the system will be on solutions for smart grids; factories; agriculture; oil, gas and mining; and asset tracking and logistics. Phantom Space said most of the satellites will be sent into space on its Daytona launch vehicle, which is expected to be first launched in 2023. By Jeff Gifford - Phoenix Business Journal

AeroVironment, a publicly-traded manufacturer of drone and missile technologies, is developing new drone tech at Spaceport America a f t e r d ro p p i n g millions of dollars on facilities. And there may be more investment to come. The company will conduct flight testoperations for research and development, in addition to training and demonstrations at the Spaceport for the JUMP 20 drone. Its vertical-launch JUMP drone can fly for 14 hours with a 115-mile flight range and carry payloads as heavy as 30 pounds, according to AeroVironment’s website. AeroVironment is also bringing operations for another type of drone, called tactical unmanned aircraft systems, to the Spaceport. In addition to its current leased space at at the Spaceport, AeroVironment “is looking to add permanent infrastructure” at an area designated for vertical launches for long-term training and testing, according to an Oct. 7 release from the Spaceport. AeroVironment instructors will teach drone safety, maintenance, operations and other related topics. Last year, the company, along with SoftBank, spent a combined $8 million to develop a hangar, office facilities and an airstrip, the release said. Together, the two organizations are building a company called HAPS Mobile,which is developing a solar-powered aircraft that would provide internet connectivity to areas with little or no access. In September 2020, the fifth test flight for the HAPS Mobile glider was conducted and was the first “LTE connectivity event” from the stratosphere, according to an AeroVironment investor presentation. The company began operating at the Spaceport in May 2020. “Spaceport America is an ideal location for testing and training of the JUMP 20 and [tactical unmanned aircraft systems] vehicles due to the abundant special use airspace and cooperative business arrangements that exist between Spaceport America and AeroVironment,” Gorik Hossepian, AeroVironment vice president, said in a statement.

ASU Sensor Will Help NASA’s Lucy Mission Solve Solar System Riddle Last month, NASA launched its Lucy mission to survey Jupiter’s Trojans — asteroid clumps that precede and trail the gas giant as it orbits the Sun. An ASU-built sensor will help the mission settle an ongoing debate about the solar system’s origins. “With these planet migration models, early in the solar system history, it was a pretty crazy place. And planets were moving and things were getting thrown, even scattered out of the solar system,” said Phil Christensen of ASU’s School of Earth and Space Exploration, who leads the Lucy Thermal Emission Spectrometer (L’TES) team. Mounting data from planets circling distant stars bolster the idea that our sun’s planets did not form in their present orbits, but rather migrated toward and away from the sun in the distant past. If true, then the Trojans’ makeup should reflect icy origins far beyond Neptune’s orbit. That’s because the Trojans became trapped A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

• 50 • Nov / Dec 2021

long ago in special pockets where the sun’s gravity balances perfectly with Jupiter’s. These areas, where gravitational and centripetal forces balance just so, are called Lagrange points. Lucy will survey the leading Trojans in 2027 and the trailing group in 2033, with Earth flybys in between. Because the spacecraft will seek out some of the solar system’s earliest remains, it bears the name of one of the most famous hominin fossil skeletons studied on Earth. That Lucy was found in Ethiopia in 1974 by Donald Johanson and Tom Gray. Appropriately enough, the Lucy spacecraft will fly by the main belt asteroid (52246) Donaldjohanson on its way to Jupiter. Christensen said he looks forward to whatever surprises lurk among the floating Trojan fossils. “You’re always surprised. You know, we’ll get out there and go, ‘Oh, that’s not what we thought.’ That’s the beauty of doing it,” Christensen said. By Nicholas Gerbis

U.S. Manufacturing Expands Further In September; Shortages, Prices Rising-ISM U.S. manufacturing activity picked up further in September, but factories experienced longer delays getting raw materials delivered and paid higher prices for inputs. The Institute for Supply Management (ISM) said its index of national factory activity increased to a reading of 61.1 last month from 59.9 in August. A reading above 50 indicates expansion in manufacturing, which accounts for 12% of the U.S. economy. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast the index falling to 59.6.

supply shortages related to the COVID-19 pandemic. That was underscored by a rebound in the survey’s measure of prices paid by manufacturers to a reading of 81.2 from an eight-month low of 79.4 in August. The Federal Reserve last week raised its projection for its key inflation measure to 3.7% this year. That was up from a median of 3.0% projected back in June. The U.S. central bank has a flexible 2% inflation target. Aside from the technical lift from the supplier deliveries measure, manufacturing is strong. The ISM survey’s forward-looking new orders sub-index held at a reading of 66.7 last month. Manufacturing is being underpinned by businesses desperate to rebuild stocks after inventories were depleted in the first half of the year.

Some of the surprise rise in the ISM index, however, was due to a jump in the survey’s measure of supplier deliveries to a reading of 73.4 last month from 69.5 in August.

entertainment. This will improve the passenger experience, enhance safety, and increase the efficiency of flight operations. Catalyzed by the aviation market’s shift toward more connected and smart aircraft, the market, comprising of the cockpit segment, cabin segment, and in-flight entertainment and connectivity (IFEC), is estimated to reach $730.4 million by 2030 from $527.2 million in 2020, at a 3.3% compound annual growth rate (CAGR). However, due to the impact of COVID-19, the industry will likely witness incremental growth through 2023. Air travel is expected to return to pre-pandemic numbers by 2024, and the demand for aviation Satcom will inflate steadily throughout the forecast period. Asia-Pacific (APAC) will generate the highest revenue for the market over the forecast period. The growth is primarily attributed to China and India, where the demand for domestic travel is high. Similarly, North America will be the second-biggest revenue contributor because most full-service carriers in the U.S. provide premium services. In Europe and the Middle East, most of the demand is from the international market; the demand for Satcom is for long-haul flights. “The cockpit segment will lead the overall market as it will be driven by the automation of data collection to monitor aircraft health in real time,” said Waseem Ahmed Khan, Industry Analyst, Aerospace & Defense Practice, Frost & Sullivan. “In addition, airlines’ move to provide the latest digital services to enhance their passengers’ experience will inflate the demand for cabin Satcom and IFEC.”

Precision CAD, CAM and CNC... a 5-Axis Machine Shop That Just Officially Opened

We see it all the time. Machine shops, big and small, can be in business for years or even decades. They make great precision parts….but they continue to do so with 3 and 4th axis machines. Whether it is a fear of new technology or a perceived high cost of acquisition, it is invariably costing them substantially more to make their parts than their more agile and efficient 5th axis competitors. It may ultimately cost them their competitiveness in the market. Julian van Santen officially retired from his full time position as a technology executive at a bank in late October of this year. And yet, sitting in his 3 car garage, a garage that still houses the family’s cars, is a 5 axis machining center, a Haas UMC500. The business cards Julian had printed with his new company name on it were hot off the press. Julian’s new company is called ‘Precision CAD, CAM and CNC’. And though Julian officially retired in October of this year, he has been honing his machining skills for more than a year now, it’s just that he was doing it after work and on weekends. Chris Hansen, Business Manager for Ellison Machinery, the machine tool dealer for the Haas machine tool line, sold Julian his first machine in April of last year, the month after all things changed with COVID-19. Chris says, “Julian came to us after having already determined that he wanted to purchase a Haas machine. After learning about his requirements and his experience, Julian and I determined the Haas Mini Mill was the optimal first machine.” He continued, “Haas Mini Mills are the industry standard for compact machining centers, and they are perfect for schools, start-up shops, or as a first step into CNC machining.” Julian adds, “I selected Haas for my machining needs after doing some research on the machine tools out on the market, This coupled with what I wanted to spend and the machining capabilities drove me to the Haas machine line.” As I previously mentioned, Julian retired from the banking industry in the latter part of October, but I did not mention that he had no direct experience in machining A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

• 56 • Nov / Dec 2021

prior to purchasing his first Haas, the Mini Mill. But he holds an electrical engineering and Computer Science degree and has a gift in his mechanical acumen. Julian comes from a technology background, has built cars, and most recently a plane so using YouTube for his online machining training was a challenge he embraced. Over the course of this past year, Julian was able to build parts for more than 100 different companies and entrepreneurs, many of them acquired through Xometry. If you aren’t familiar with this company, Xometry offers its customers who need parts access to more than 5000 suppliers, many US based. The customer can submit a print and with Xometry’s Instant Quoting system, they can receive quotes from a number of shops nearly instantly. Julian says, “Xometry offers its customers manufacturing on demand, and as one of their suppliers, I am able to bid on jobs.” After less than 1 year of being an Xometry supplier, Julian holds the distinction of being one of Xometry’s most elite suppliers, and he was awarded ‘Ultra-Premium’ partnership status. Ultra-Premium partners must have shown a history of consistently delivering quality parts on time prior to receiving this distinction. New jobs that require tighter tolerances, are more complex and have extra

which allows faster feed rates and more complex toolpaths. Using a motion algorithm called “acceleration before interpolation” combined with full look-ahead, HSM provides contouring feeds up to 1200 ipm (30.5 m/min), without risk of distortion to the programmed path. This yields reduced cycle times, improved accuracy, and smoother motion Julian often runs his Haas UMC500 unattended, and during our interview he received machine updates wirelessly on his watch.

inspection requirements are made available to UltraPremium partners to bid on. As he machined parts for Xometry customers as well as other customers he acquired through word of mouth, Julian found that he was limited in the parts he could bid on largely because of the restrictions of the Haas Mini-Mill, and as he put it, the top down view was restrictive. Again, Julian worked with Chris Hansen to determine the next Haas machine that would take him to the next level, and the two came to the decision that Julian would be best suited with a Haas 5-axis machining center, specifically the Haas UMC-500. Chris says, “The Haas UMC-500 combines the 5-axis capability of our industry-leading UMC-750, with the design improvements of our larger UMC-1000, to create powerful 5-axis solution with a footprint just slightly larger than a VF-2. It was the perfect machine tool choice for Julian.” And so, in February of this year, literally 10 months after taking ownership of his first machine, the Haas Mini-Mill, Julian had upgraded to 5 axis machining, something machine shops who are business for decades, often still haven’t done.

Chris says, “Julian effectively gets an operator inside the 5 axis machine.” He adds, ‘You can spend ~$80,000 for a 3 or 4 axis machine that will always require an operator to run it. Alternatively, you can spend ~$120,000 for a Haas 5 axis machining center and eliminate the need to hire the additional employee. At an annually loaded cost of approximately $80,000 for a machinist, you have a payback of 6 months when you invest in the Haas 5 axis machining center.” Chris and Julian have essentially become partners in Julian’s business growth. Julian says, “Chris is awesome, his extensive knowledge of the Haas machine product line means that he is always a couple of steps ahead of me when we are deciding what my new company needs next. As an example, Chris pushed me to invest in 5 axis workholding tools, and I clearly recognize the need to invest in some of the best tooling and software out there.” For those who don’t know Chris, he isn’t your typical machine tool sales person. Chris not only worked in machine shops after earning his degree in Mechanical Engineering, but he is also certified to the CMTSE (Certified Manufacturing Technology Sales Engineer) standard. The CMTSE Program is the only nationally recognized program to measure and celebrate the skills, knowledge, and ability of sales engineers to perform effectively. Coupled with Julian’s toolkit which includes Haas machine tools, is Autodesk FUSION 360 software for his CAD/CAM, and he is partial to Kennametal, Harvey and Helical for his tooling needs.

Today, Julian makes a number of highly complex parts, and even has machined titanium and Inconel parts.

Though Precision CAD, CAM and CNC isn’t yet certified to ISO9001/ AS9100 (this will be complete by 12/2021), Julian has set the company up from the start using Lean Principles. “All of my tools are kept in a toolbox, much like a machine vending machine, and they are all numbered. I am never hunting for ‘Drill 137’.” The company also has established templates for quoting, again with the principles of lean in mind. .

Chris says, “Julian figured out machining faster than anyone I have ever seen, and I can say that he learns about all of the features that Haas puts into the machine and he utilizes them to their fullest.” Through Chris’ recommendations, Julian added a few options to his Haas UMC500, including;

Precision CAD, CAM and CNC is already making R&D prototype parts for large aerospace and space companies . “I love being a job shop”, Julian says, “because it gives me such a variety of new machining experiences.” If you have a need for complex parts machined in low quantities, Julian’s company is an excellent choice.

The ISM released the Manufacturing ISM Report on Business that shows the Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) rose 1.2 percentage points to 61.1% in September, from August, and the overall economy expanded for the 16th consecutive month. A PMI reading above 50% indicates the manufacturing economy is expanding. The new orders index was flat at 66.7%, the production index fell 0.6 percentage points to 59.4%, the prices index increased 1.8 percentage points to 81.2%, the backlog of orders index fell 3.4 percentage points to 64.8%, the employment index rose 1.2 percentage points to 50.2%, the supplier deliveries index rose 3.9 percentage points to 73.4%, the inventories index increased 1.4 percentage points to 55.6%, the new export orders index fell 3.2 percentage points to 53.4%, and the imports index increased 0.6 percentage points to 54.9%. Timothy Fiore, chair of the ISM Manufacturing Business Survey Committee, said “companies and suppliers continue to deal with an unprecedented number of hurdles to meet increasing demand. All segments of the manufacturing economy are impacted by record-long raw materials lead times, continued shortages of critical materials, rising commodities prices and difficulties in transporting products. Global pandemic-related issues — worker absenteeism, short-term shutdowns due to parts shortages, difficulties in filling open positions and overseas supply chain problems — continue to limit manufacturing growth potential.

“However, optimistic panel sentiment remains strong, with three positive growth comments for every cautious comment,” he added. “Panelists are fully focused on supply chain issues in order to respond to the ongoing high levels of demand.” The employment index returned to expansion after one month of contraction, but panelists continue to report hiring difficulties with no significant signs of abating, Fiore said. The inventories index continued to expand faster because work-in-process inventory is being held longer amid part shortages, and more finished goods inventory is being held because of downstream customer issues, he said. The prices index expanded for the 16th consecutive month and at a faster rate in September, and this indicates continued supplier pricing power and scarcity of supply chain goods. The following six largest manufacturing industries reported moderate to strong growth in September: petroleum and coal products; computer and electronic products; chemical products; food, beverage and tobacco products; fabricated metal products; and transportation equipment. “Manufacturing performed well for the 16th straight month, with demand, consumption and inputs registering month-over-month growth, in spite of continuing unprecedented obstacles and ever-increasing demand,” Fiore said. “Panelists’ companies and their supply chains continue to struggle to meet demand due to difficulties in hiring and a clear cycle of labor turnover, as workers opt for more attractive job opportunities. Disruptions from COVID-19, primarily in Southeast Asia, continue to have an impact on many industry sectors. Congestion at ports in China and the U.S. continues to be a headwind, as transportation networks remain stressed. Demand remains at strong levels, despite increasing prices.”

In the computer and electronics products industry, a respondent said port issues and a lack of containers have contributed to shortages in electronic components and assemblies. Another respondent said “the impacts from Hurricane Ida on the petrochemical industry has put additional stress on an already fragile supply chain. Logistics with intermodal containers and motor carriers continues to be a challenge for planning deliveries of materials.” Respondents in machinery, transportation equipment, and food, beverage and tobacco products industries highlighted challenges with the lack of available labor. Respondents also cited concerns with rising costs and raw materials shortages. A respondent in the electrical equipment, appliances and components industry said “customer demand continues to swell as we prepare for the fourth quarter, and overall growth has been extremely good for the year. Supply chain concerns are growing beyond electronics and chips into most other commodities. Lead times are extending, shipping lanes are slowing and we will not see an end to this in 2021.” In the paper products industry, a respondent said, “We are still amazed by the labor market. We used to have 100 applicants for an opening; we are now seeing about 10 — and often, the applicant does not show for the interview.”by Jeff Della Rosa

Valley Startup Combines With Mississippi Firm To Form New Drone Tech Company An Arizona mapping and infrastructure startup has joined with a Mississippi-based aerial imaging firm to form a new company focused on data collection services for unmanned aerial systems. Soaring Eagle Technologies, which has planted its headquarters in Houston, was formed this year through the combination of Chandler-based Skynetwest and Soaring Eagle Imaging of Brandon, Mississippi. Soaring Eagle Technologies is a portfolio company of Houston-based Iapetus Holdings LLC, an investment firm with a portfolio of energy service companies and other alternative investments. The combined company provides technology services for utility, energy and infrastructure asset inspections, including infrared thermal imaging, aerial mapping and more. Soaring Eagle’s services have been deployed in situations to inspect powergrid infrastructure, vegetation management, storm response, controlled-burn fire overwatch, wildlife and fishery management, and search and rescue, the firm said. In addition to the firm’s Houston headquarters, Soaring Eagle has presences in Arizona, California, Florida, Massachusetts, Mississippi and New York. Earlier this year, the FAA granted Skynetwest a waiver and permission to conduct Beyond Visual Line of Sight operations, which allowed the company to extend its scope.

Camacho said he and GPEC would “love” to grow the partnership 12/21/18 10:14 AM to create opportunities for Taiwanese companies looking to establish a U.S. presence to look to greater Phoenix first, and vice versa with Arizona-based companies seeking to create a presence in Asia. “As global leaders for technology and innovation, Arizona and Taiwan represent natural partners for collaboration and investment,” Watson said. “TSMC’s legacy investment has highlighted the tremendous potential of this strategic partnership, with more opportunity and success to come.”

Phoenix and Taipei have been sister cities for decades, but Camacho said TSMC’s Phoenix plant is the “800-pound gorilla in the room” that has sparked a lot of the conversations and partnership. In the next few months, Camacho said he expects announcements from between six and 12 more companies planning a presence in the Valley to work alongside TSMC. One company, Sunlit Chemical, has already closed on land where it will create a chemical manufacturing facility. “The suppliers are extraordinarily active now,” he said.Of the companies GPEC has in its pipeline, 42 are related to the semiconductor supply chain, which represents about 20% of GPEC’s pipeline, he said. Camacho said the Valley was “fortunate to have the one-two punch”

of TSMC’s plant and Intel’s massive expansion, creating even more of a spotlight for semiconductor production.By Corina Vanek – Phoenix Business Journal


Local Machining Cuts Your Costs

Machining Outlook Takes Flight Again in the Aerospace Market

Cut your machining and transportation costs by using IPE Aerospace, an Arizona company. IPE Aerospace can machine high-tolerance components and provide limited run production parts.

Prior to 2020, many of us who supply manufacturing systems were riding the coattails of the aerospace industry’s 14-year boom. Our company was engaged in increased jet engine and structural parts production, as our machine tools are well-suited to hard metal machining. The robust sector also spurred development of customized components designed just for certain aspects of fixed-wing and rotor aircraft machining processes. Then, well–we all know what happened in early 2020. The commercial sector of the industry fell into the pandemic pit. As international travel decreased, production for twin-aisle aircraft took the most significant hit as there was already an overabundance of capacity. Plus the shift toward single aisles was already underway. Each sector—single aisles, business jets, civil rotorcraft—were all down. Military was the exception. That segment stayed on track. According to The Teal Group, the top five aircraft programs will recover and go beyond the former boom from now until 2030. Those top five are Airbus A320Neo, Boeing 737NG/MAX, Lockheed Martin F-35, Boeing 787 and Airbus A350XWB. Don’t forget about the private outer space programs either, particularly involving satellite manufacturing. From our perspective as a machine tool provider, we are experiencing a faster comeback than we expected across all product lines. We anticipate that by 2023 we will be as busy, if not busier, than we were at the peak of the boom. There are a few drivers for this. Our customers

And, while automation was often a requirement before, it is even more so now. Helping manufacturers produce more with less has been our perpetual goal–and it’s downright urgent now. The other driver is the skilled-labor shortage, which we are all getting weary of hearing about. It is creating a push for more automation–and it is in automation where we see nuanced fine tuning and growth, such as bringing in secondary operations into flexible manufacturing cells. This includes such operations as robotic deburring, cleaning and measuring and what 02/16/10 might be considered pre-FMS machining functions such as raw material storage. Cutting tool Metalworker handling, monitoring and management withinA2Z an FMS are also becoming common to integrate.

Critical component manufacturers throughout aerospace have traditionally been steps ahead of other sectors in applying the latest methodologies. They have been among the first to take on newer developments, not just in machining automation but also plant-wide systems and software. More decisions are data-driven, whether it’s how to quote jobs or how to tell when a cutting tool insert needs to be changed. Further, with the emergence of blockchain in the supply chain, potentially all suppliers will need to be aligned in their processes in this decade. While many industry experts project a full comeback by the middle of this decade, it takes time to retool, recalibrate processes and update industry-specific certifications. The U.S. Department of Defense, for example, is demanding some level of Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) for security compliance. And more stringent requirements are coming. Suppliers need to conduct inquiries now about how to improve machining, processes and operations so they are ready for the flight out of the pandemic pit.

The city will be paying to design, construct and finance public infrastructure improvements to make sure all that potable water is delivered to Intel. It also will be creating a system to get up to 11 million gallons per day of reclaimed water to the new site.


The city of Chandler will also be asking the Arizona Department of Revenue to help cover large portions of these waterrelated costs under the Public Infrastructure Master Agreement. Intel has agreed to reimburse Chandler if the Department of Revenue doesn’t pay the amounts Chandler expects.

Added Value Services: Shearing, Saw Cutting, Welding MIG, TIG & ARC, Hole Punching, Notching, Bending, Metal Fabrication, and Plasma Cutting

Outside of that $20 million for water, if the agreement is signed, the city would provide up to $10 million for public improvements to the intersection of Alma School and Ocotillo roads to deal with expected traffic impacts of the new sites. •

Chandler Considers Spending $30m On Infrastructure Around New Intel Plants Intel Corp. is bringing close to $20 billion worth of investment and thousands of jobs to the East Valley, and for its part, the city of Chandler is looking at throwing in $20 million to make sure the plants have enough water and another $10 million on road work. Last month the Chandler City Council will decide whether to authorize a development agreement between the city and Intel, and part of that would include the financing and construction of public infrastructure needed to serve Intel’s expansion of its manufacturing facility. Under the terms of the agreement, Chandler would spend up to $12.1 million to acquire additional water rights so Intel would have enough potable water for its operations. In total, the city will be serving Intel an additional 3.1 million gallons per day of potable water. A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

“This financial contribution would be in exchange for the significant, measurable economic value to be provided by the project through increased tax revenues, enhanced economic development, and the creation of up to 3,000 new, high-paying jobs by Intel,” Chandler’s city hall staff wrote in its memo to the City Council. Intel is already one of the largest employers in the Valley, with 12,000 people working at its Ocotillo Campus, but with the addition of two new semiconductor chip factories the company could be looking at 15,000 workers in Chandler. Intel started construction on the new sites in September. They are expected to be operational by 2024. By Brandon Brown – Reporter, Phoenix Business Journal

Manufacturing Is Cool Again. Here’s Why. F o r m u c h o f t h e 2 0 t h c e n t u r y, manufacturing seemed like the industry most capable of grabbing the future with both hands, propelling itself forward, and bringing the rest of the world along for the ride. Innovations that mass-produced the Model-T were only separated from advances in robotics and automation by a few decades, all while manufacturers created new mindsets and approaches to making things, from the Kanban production system to agile manufacturing. However, in the past few decades, the industry appears to have lost some of its wow factor. Today the general perception is that manufacturing is a risk-averse, mind-numbing activity where nothing important or innovative happens. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, there’s never been a better time to rethink manufacturing. Turn your eyes to the sky for a moment and ponder the fact that the heavens and beyond are now regularly being traversed by spacecraft. Of course, there’s no Space X or Blue Origin without manufacturing. Closer to home, look at the slew of electric vehicles already on the roads and coming to Amarket in regular This variety ranges from innovative new offerings from Z MANUFACTURING SW • 58 • waves.

• 64 • Nov / Dec 2021

– as the popular imagination might have it – the industry is helping create new paradigms around transportation and exploration. It is also tackling perhaps the most pressing issue of our time: climate change. On this topic, manufacturing is where the rubber hits the road, and not only by turning green ideas into physical objects at scale. The latest innovation in manufacturing is thanks to the software revolution finally finding an authentic place on the factory floor. Up until now, software has powered manufacturers’ design, engineering, financial, and supply chain operations. But its impact on the physical means of making has been limited. Today, it oversees the hardware you find in a factory, making more of the repetitive work currently done by humans the purview of machines and robots. This softwarefirst approach to manufacturing provides an opportunity to create a fully functional assembly line wherever a product is needed, which helps cut down on long and heavily polluting supply chains. It also means that local work will have a global scope. The next generation of workers can expect to collaborate with teams located anywhere that learning from process improvements or other discoveries can be gleaned. Manufacturing’s coolness credentials would be rock solid based solely on the global scale of the problems it’s targeting and the audacious goals in its sights. But what takes it to the next level is how the daily work of manufacturing itself is undergoing a bold reimagining of people’s roles. For people interested in creative problem-solving, manufacturing is the place to be. The next generation of workers likely isn’t interested in performing repetitive tasks, like turning a screw or hammering a panel for hours on end. Fortunately, they don’t have to.

The industrial automation that began in the last century has been taken to a new level in the 21st century through software-first manufacturing. It allows machines to handle these repetitive duties. Utilizing software to oversee all the hardware that legacy manufacturers focused on, intelligent automation can now tackle the assembly and inspection steps that were historically too difficult for machines to carry out. So, what are the humans doing while the machines operate? Quite simply, while robots are doing what they’re good at, humans are freed up to do the things that they’re good at and uniquely qualified to handle. On the manufacturing floor, this means employing their creativity and problem-solving skills to come up with innovations around process or product development. For those who like solving puzzles, there are few more satisfying fields. Working with something physical and tangible where they can see the fruits of their labor at the end of the process makes the payoff all the more gratifying. Additionally, it’s important to remember that the days of Skynet are a long way away and that robots – even those endowed with intelligence – can’t learn entirely on their own. Instead, someone must tell the robot what to do and train it how to do its job. As a result, many manufacturing jobs will be for “robot wranglers.” Like the conductor of an orchestra or the coach of a sports team, this individual will work with the robots to make sure they are efficiently carrying out the manufacturing tasks at hand. If we look at other industries, there are some historical echoes. For example, the introduction of ATMs didn’t put bank tellers out of business; it allowed machines to do tasks they were good at – like rapidly counting and doling out dollar bills – while the tellers could focus on more complex financial transactions and customer interactions. Likewise, CAD certainly didn’t make architects or designers obsolete – it just automated portions of their job, so they could devote more of their brainpower towards coming up with creative solutions. The same trend is happening in manufacturing today. Automation solutions provide a new way to build things, allowing individuals who enter the manufacturing field to call upon creativity, empathy, innovation, and problem-solving skills, just as a daily matter of course. What could be cooler than that? According to a recent study, manufacturers in the United States need to fill 4 million jobs by 2030 – and more than half of those jobs could go unfilled because of several main culprits, one of which is a misperception about modern manufacturing. In celebration of Manufacturing Day, there’s no better time to throw outdated perceptions out the window and realize that manufacturing is evolving in exciting new ways, making it a vital – and yes, even cool – place to work and help shape the future.

Arizona’s low-cost business environment, one made even more competitive recently with Governor Ducey’s signing of the lowest-in-the-nation flat tax, combined with a global supply chain shakeup, has more advanced manufacturers considering the state than ever before. A top selling point for many is Arizona’s talent pipeline. Arizona State University, which has been ranked the most innovative university seven years running, has approximately 25,000 students enrolled in engineering programs — a 170% increase since 2010, according to data from the Arizona Board of Regents. Expertise in emerging technologies such as optics, quantum computing, renewable energy, grid reliability, and biosciences at the University of Arizona and Northern Arizona University contribute to a vibrant innovation ecosystem. Arizona’s expansive community college system plays an important role as well, partnering with industry to offer in-demand skills training. Examples include the manufacturing training center, “Drive48,” at Central Arizona College, the Automotive Technology and Innovation Center at Pima Community College, and the Arizona Advanced Manufacturing Institute at Mesa Community College. For Zero Electric Vehicle President Jim Maury, Arizona’s rich talent pool has propelled the company to new heights. The company, which manufacturers car electrification kits, announced in September a new 1,000 square-foot production facility and headquarters in Gilbert.“ZEV values the incredible talent coming through these college programs,” Maury said. “We have over four graduates with patent filings in less than six months of development – that is rapid innovation.” ZEV is one of many manufacturers around the state adding operations over the last eight months, including Shambaugh & Sons in Kingman, CP Technologies in

Prescott, UACJ Whitehall in Flagstaff, APEL Extrusions in Phoenix and BD in Tucson.They are joined by homegrown technology stars like EnPower, a Phoenix-based startup engineering lithium-ion batteries that charge over three times faster than traditional batteries, with more power and longer lifespans. Helping fuel the rise of newcomers like ZEV and EnPower is an expansive n e t w o r k o f m o re e s t a b l i s h e d technology leaders including iconic global companies like Boeing, N o r t h ro p G r u m m a n , G e n e r a l Dynamics, Sub-Zero, Ball Corporation, PING, Mark Anthony Brewing, Red Bull, NXP Semiconductors, Microchip, Benchmark Electronics and more. The state’s diverse manufacturing landscape represents one of the hottest in the country. With innovation and technology driving further growth, Arizona promises to be a land of opportunity for manufacturers — both large and small — for years to come.

Lucid Beats Tesla In Range, Going 520 Miles On A Charge, EPA Says Lucid Motors, a startup automaker, has unseated Tesla, the dominant maker of electric cars, as the producer of the electric vehicle that can travel farthest on a single charge. Lucid’s top-of-the-line Air Dream Edition Range can drive 520 miles on a full battery, the Environmental Protection Agency said, beating by more than 100 miles the Tesla Model S Long Range, previously the car that could go the farthest on a charge. How far electric cars can travel before they have to be plugged in — a metric known as their range — is important because the infrastructure for charging the vehicles is in its infancy, and filling up a battery can take hours depending on the car and charger. President Joe Biden and other world leaders want people to switch to electric vehicles to fight climate change. But that is unlikely to happen until the auto industry eases the fears that drivers will be left stranded with no plug in sight or will have to wait hours for their cars to refuel. Until there are more fast-charging stations, automakers are trying to come up with electric cars that can go longer distances on a full battery. Tesla, which makes about two-thirds of electric vehicles sold in the United States, has long won that contest, producing several cars that can travel more than 300 miles without recharging. Many automakers have struggled to hit that threshold or go much beyond it. Lucid and its CEO, Peter Rawlinson, a former Tesla engineer, have said for months that their cars will go farther than Teslas because they are more aerodynamic and use smaller, more efficient motors and other components. The EPA provided official confirmation of those claims. “Crucially, this landmark has been achieved by Lucid’s world-leading in-house EV technology, not by simply installing an oversize battery pack,” Rawlinson said. Tesla is expected to soon face much more competition, including from Lucid and from Rivian, another startup that is expected to begin delivering electric pickup trucks to customers this month. Traditional automakers such as General Motors and Volkswagen are also accelerating their efforts. Ford Motor Co. is planning to sell an electric version of its F-150 pickup truck, the most popular vehicle in the United States, next spring. But Lucid’s cars will occupy a luxurious niche in the market. The Air Dream Edition starts at $169,000 before federal and state incentives, although the company has said it will eventually offer more affordable versions of the Air, including one that will sell for about $77,000. The company is also working on an SUV. Source: iraj Chokshi – The New York Times A2Z MANUFACTURING SW
