Editors Corner “I do believe in simplicity. It is astonishing as well as sad, how many trivial affairs even the wisest thinks he must attend to in a day; how singular an affair he thinks he must omit.When the mathematician would solve a difficult problem, he first frees the equation of all encumbrances, and reduces it to its simplest terms. So simplify the problem of life, distinguish the necessary and the real. Probe the earth to see where your main roots run. ”

Henry David Thoreau A couple of my daughter’s friends have been capitalizing on the Phoenix housing market plummet, as prices are just now slowing rising again. Alyssa purchased her own house, and is really taking pleasure in household ownership. But when I asked her if she was interested in entering the rental market, as those friends were doing, she was emphatic in her answer. “No.”When I asked her why, she told me that she likes to keep life simple. Owning a home, while rewarding, entails hassles when things break, installations don’t work, etc. Alyssa said her one home was enough for her. She didn’t need more houses, or contractors, or services in her life. It made me think about my life, and what I could do to simplify. What does simplifying mean? Different things to different people, but for me it translates into downsizing my life. Figuring out what is really important, and letting some of the other stuff go. Have a small, but comfortable home. Less clutter, more space to move, breathe, and do the things you really care about doing. This also has the side benefit of less time spent cleaning.

Learn to live with less. Buy less, savor quality more, and save more. Don’t procrastinate. Do what you say you are going to do, and get it done. Spend less time on television, movies, video games, and technology. It affects your life more than you think. Not only are these activities time consuming, but if you are addicted to the news, you can’t help but be affected by all the negativity. Say ‘yes’ less. Over extending yourself complicates your life. Learn to tell others no when you don’t want to or just can’t do something. “No, that’s not going to work for me.” Not only does it free up time for yourself and your family, it makes you feel empowered in your decisions. Read more. Create time for solitude, quiet and relaxation. Spend more time on your hobbies. Perhaps one of the best outcomes of simplifying is stress reduction. If your needs are simplified, your expenses go down, and your financial situation improves.You naturally are less stressed when your day to day worries don’t include the overriding fear associated with debt. Maslow’s hierarchy says that our basic needs, including our biological, physiological and safety needs -must be satisfied before we can move to the highest level of needs, that of self-actualization. If you feel you are doing too much or pre-occupied with acquiring more than you need, explore simplicity. I am. And as always, God Bless our Troops.

Sandvik Coromant continues the dialogue on industrial trends June 19th marks the world premiere of the second Sandvik Coromant trend film “A look ahead at hyperspecialization and the talent mismatch.” In 2013, Sandvik Coromant launched a dialogue with the manufacturing industry focusing on macro trends affecting the future of manufacturing. This was supported by a trend report and a video highlighting the effects of urbanization, sustainability, new materials and new technology. This time the industry leader takes a look at competence-related trends, such as the upcoming skills gap and talent mismatch. These trends indicate that the world may lack up to 85 million A2Z METALWORKER

skilled workers by the year 2020. Other topics include hyperspecialization and the way we will educate people in the future. “When it comes to the trends of the manufacturing industry, market leaders have a responsibility to be perceptive and forward thinking. We are a knowledge company. Competence and R&D are part of our main cornerstones. That is why it is imperative to us that there is a dialogue in the industry on how to meet future demands on competence and skills,” says Klas Forsström President, Sandvik Coromant. The talent mismatch With the baby boom generation going into retirement and taking their knowledge with them we are faced with a number of new challenges. This also means that knowledge and skills will become a much more scarce resource in the future. Despite the fact that we are facing the largest new generation group ever, there is a problem. Their profile is not very well matched with the competence needs of the industry. This will force companies to change the way they construct their work. It will also change the way we think about education. The age of hyperspecialization In the future manufacturers will not be able to have all competencies in-house.This opens up new ways of working and cooperating. Previously, outsourcing was done as a matter of cost. In the future outsourcing will be a means to access required skills.Work as such will be constructed differently by distributing it to specialists around the world and then bringing it back together again for delivery. “It is very much an orchestrated network where specific project managers will coordinate a set of experts just like a conductor leads the way in a philharmonic orchestra. This way of working opens up for new partnerships and cooperation between manufacturers, tool makers, machine makers, universities and research centers,” Forsström explains.

Delcam for SolidWorks XPRESS provides the essential 2D milling and drilling functionality available in Delcam for SolidWorks. It can be downloaded free of charge from www. delcamforsolidworks.com/xpress. A2Z METALWORKER

16 •July/Aug 2013

Delcam for SolidWorks XPRESS is intended mainly as an introductory level program for users that are new to computer-aided machining. However, it will also be useful for companies, such as design studios, that only need to program simpler CNC machines or those that wish to experiment with 2D machining before investing in a full 3D software package. Users will be able to generate NC code for feature-rich 2D parts quickly and easily with the unique ‘feature-from-feature’ technology inside Delcam for SolidWorks. The software is, of course, fully compatible with the latest version of SolidWorks. Delcam for SolidWorks XPRESS is fully integrated into the SolidWorks environment, in exactly the same way as the full Delcam for SolidWorks software, so that the program looks and behaves like SolidWorks. Similarly, it offers the same full associativity with SolidWorks so that any changes in the CAD model are reflected automatically in the toolpaths. The XPRESS version provides the same high level of automation as the full program. The software automatically selects the appropriate tooling for the project, allocates the appropriate feeds and speeds to all the toolpaths, and orders the various roughing, semi-finishing and finishing operations into the most efficient sequence.

Mazak Honored for Investment in Manufacturing Campus In recognition of the expansions of its North American Headquarters campus in Florence, Kentucky, Mazak Corporation received the Cincinnati USA Partnership for Economic Development’s Growth Award during the Commercial Real Estate Developers Power Breakfast event held on May 2, 2013 in downtown Cincinnati. The award is presented to companies that attract and retain businesses, jobs and capital investments in the Greater Cincinnati area, as well as continue to grow and expand within the local area. With three core business structures established in 1996, Mazak began in Florence with three facilities: a manufacturing factory, its National Technology Center and its National Customer Service and Support Center. Over the years, Mazak has expanded all three of these facilities and has since added two more facilities at the campus for a total of five buildings. These expansions started in 2009 with adding 50,000 square feet to the manufacturing factory. A2Z METALWORKER

22 •July/Aug 2013

Additionally, the company’s Spindle Rebuild Department located in the manufacturing area moved into this new space to expand its operational capacity. Also at this time, Mazak invested $9 million in advanced manufacturing equipment that helped grow the company’s machining capacity for large casted machine tool components. As the manufacturing industry started to recover from the recession in late 2010, capital investments in machine tools rose significantly as U.S. companies used a more competitive U.S. dollar to export more. Some companies began reshoring work to the U.S. and purchased new high technology machinery to increase their competitiveness. As customer demand surged, Mazak quickly stepped up its production. In 2011, it acquired its fourth building, which measures 33,000 square feet.Then shortly after, the company added its fifth building, a 65,000-square-foot leased facility that now houses the Spindle Rebuild Department and provides storage for sheet metal and other large production parts. In the past three years, Mazak Corporation has hired 300 people and added a two-story office area to the manufacturing factory building. Mazak is currently involved in a major expansion to its manufacturing factory. The preparation work for expanding the building and a required access road was begun this year, and by spring of 2014, the total addition of 200,000 square feet will be completed. This expansion will boost Mazak’s production capacity to between 170 and 200 machines per month. The National Technology Center & Center for Multi-Tasking and Manufacturing Excellence in Kentucky is the hub for Mazak’s eight Regional Technology Centers and, as such, enhances Mazak’s customer support capabilities throughout North America. Mazak also continuously invests in its regional customer service and support facilities and recently opened a new larger Southwest Regional Technology Center in the Houston area as well as expanded its Midwest Regional Technology Center in the Chicago area.

New Manufacturing Extension Centers Planned for Arizona and Rhode Island The National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) program has awarded cooperative agreements to the Arizona Commerce Authority and the University of Rhode Island Research Foundation to serve the small and mid-size manufacturers in their respective states.

Arizona is home to more than 4,300 manufacturers, 95 percent of which have fewer than 100 employees, and only 29 employ more than 500 people. Among the state’s top manufactured goods are computer and electronic equipment, electronic components, transportation equipment (space vehicles, helicopters, turbine engines, guided missiles) and chemicals. The NIST award provides $1 million, which is half of the center’s operating budget for the first year. MEP centers are public-private partnerships with annual funding from a mix of sources, including a portion from NIST MEP, industry support through fees for service, and some from nonfederal A Z METALWORKER 2

24 • July/Aug 2013

As a public-private partnership, MEP delivers a high return on investment to taxpayers. For every one dollar of federal investment, the MEP generates nearly $20 in new sales growth and $20 in new client investment. This translates into $2.5 billion in new sales annually. For every $2,100 of federal investment, MEP creates or retains one manufacturing job.

Commerce Dept. launches initiative, touts Mesa firm Using Able Engineering’s expansive new Mesa facility as a backdrop, U.S. Deputy Commerce Secretary Rebecca Blank unveiled a national initiative that will assist cities trying to attract or expand manufacturing opportunities.

The Investing in Manufactur ing Communities Partnership aims to shake up how federal dollars are used for economicdevelopment efforts, forgoing targeted incentives for specific companies in favor of pushing cities to create investmentfriendly environments through workforce training, infrastructure and innovation. Blank chose to introduce the program at a Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport facility because the airport’s surrounding community has “leveraged the resources of the public sector, private firms and educational institutions to achieve a successful model of economic development” since the 1993 closure of Williams Air Force Base, according to a Commerce Department statement. Able, which provides services to reduce aircraft-operating costs, moved into its new building last month. Blank also met with southeast Valley community, business and education leaders who brought her up to speed on Gateway’s transformation. “The first thing they said is, ‘We had a


strategic plan. We had a sense of what do we have here and what do we need to get further, and we’ve implemented that,’” she said. “The second thing they said is, ‘Every investment we brought in leveraged what was already here.’” The U.S. government was an important partner, too, Blank said. “There was a number of ways in which the feds put money into this after the base closed and really helped them make some of the infrastructure changes they needed to make,” she said. “So, (the new initiative is about) that type of partnership.” President Barack Obama’s fiscal 2014 budget asks for $113million to fund the IMCP, with each of the five to six cities chosen for assistance receiving up to $25million. Cities’ strategic economic-development plans, which must center on “creating an environment primed to attract investment,” will guide the selection process. Though the initiative identifies desired elements for those plans -specialized research centers; technology-driven business incubators; community-college work-training programs; public-works projects related to infrastructure or energy efficiency; export-promotion plans, and integrated supply chains -- Blank stressed that the right formula will vary based on the city. “For some, it will be physical infrastructure. For some, it will be workforce development. For some, it might be tech transfer and innovation lab work of some sort,” she said. “We want to be in partnership helping the communities doing what they have

determined is best for them.” Communities this year will be eligible for $200,000 grants to launch public-private partnerships, the importance of which Mesa Mayor Scott Smith pointed out while touting Able as the type of manufacturing presence American cities should be pursuing. Able is “an incredible organization, which has an unbelievable future, helped to a large extent by the building you’re standing in right now,” he said. “That’s why we at the city of Mesa and the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport Authority were more than willing to make this $20million investment. That’s not a small amount of money. “We think the citizens of not only Mesa but the East Valley deserve this kind of economic growth and this kind of economic opportunity,” he added.

Consumer Confidence Hits Highest Level In Five Years The Washington Times reports, “Consumer confidence soared to a five-year high this month as an improving job market and double-digit gains in home prices lifted consumer spirits, according to a survey released last month.” Bloomberg News reports that the Conference Board’s consumer sentiment index rose to 76.2 in May, which exceeded “all estimates in a Bloomberg survey of economists” and was the highest since February 2008. Bloomberg News reports that the increase in housing values and stock prices are “boosting household finances.” Economists surveyed by Bloomberg expected the index to come in at 71.2 in May, up from 69.0 in April. Conference Board director of economic indicators Lynn Franco said regarding the results, “Back-to-back monthly gains suggest that consumer confidence is on the mend and may be regaining the traction it lost due to the fiscal cliff, payroll-tax hike, and sequester.”

U.S. Navy Details Amphibious Ship Mods Required For F-35 The U.S. Navy has identified “several specific initiatives on the flight deck” of landing helicopter dock (LHD) amphibious assault ships the service says the vessels will need to accommodate the F-35. Adm. Jonathan Greenert, chief of naval operations, acknowledged Wasp-class ship modifications have been designed for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) vertical lift-and-takeoff variants. Navy officials say the modifications “are intended to offset the increased stresses associated with A2Z METALWORKER

26 •July/Aug 2013

JSF exhaust. The exhaust patterns and flight characteristics of the F-35 required the shielding, relocation and removal of vulnerable systems that could sustain damage during flight operations, such as antennas, life rafts, life rails, safety nets and JP-5 fuel stations.” The Navy says, “The unique heat signature of the F-35 has required reinforcement of the flight deck to alleviate stresses from the heat of the jet, as well as modifying the flight deck coating to reduce erosion caused by jet exhaust associated with increased thrust. Specific system modifications that are unique to F-35 will also require the installation of new voltage regulators and rectifiers. Expanded mission capabilities of the F-35 have also required enhanced munitions throughput and systems capabilities to facilitate increased ordnance delivery and aircraft associated support equipment.” Some of the modifications include relocating or shielding features such as the Phalanx close-in-weapon system and Rolling Airframe Missile and NATO Sea Sparrow missile launchers, and protecting fueling stations.

B o e i n g To D i v e r s i f y Engineering Base Boeing said it will establish new engineering design centers in Washington state, South Carolina, and California to diversify its engineering base. Boeing said this should reduce risk of disruption if one site needs to shut down for whatever reason. Boeing spokesperson Doug Alder said the centers would have to compete for work.

Advanced Auto Electronics Expected To See Growth In Safety Features The Los Angeles Times reports on the growing market for “advanced automotive electronics – everything from driver assistance programs to new kinds of visual displays” expected to “jump to $240 billion by 2020,” according to IHS Inc.’s IMS Research. Kelley Blue Book’s Jack Nerad said that “some of the more exciting developments will be vehicle-to-vehicle communications as an added safety feature.”

The Seattle Times reports how Boeing uses “new robot painting machines” that can paint 777 wings “with perfect quality” in 24 minutes compared to the 4.5 hours it takes a team of people. Jason Clark, director of 777 manufacturing, told reporters how the system can also be used for the 777X wing, which the article takes as an “encouraging” sign of how the 777X work will be done in the area. The article notes that “as Boeing raises its production rates to unprecedented heights and at the same time chases ever-increasing efficiency, more automation is the direction it wants to take.”

Ford: SUVs, Crossovers Will Drive Growth The Detroit Free Press reports, “A decade ago an SUV meant a big, body-on-frame vehicle that could tow a trailer over a dirt road. Today, automakers think of utilities as small, sometimes-luxury vehicles that replace large or midsize cars.” The Press reports, “Global sales of utility vehicles now account for 13 million sales a year, or 18% of the worldwide market. That is 35% more than in 2005.” To meet “growing global demand, Ford is stepping up exports and building more of its utilities in emerging markets such as China and Russia. Ford exports one of every four Explorers it makes and plans to offer it in 27 countries by 2017,” Erich Merkle, Ford analyst said.

Superior Parts and Sub-Assemblies, From Prototype to Production

“These weapons are not playthings. A lightsaber is a dangerous and destructive instrument, a powerful blade that can strike down an opponent—or a friend, if you’re not careful.” Luke Skywalker to his students JD Ellen Manufacturing takes tremendous pride in the support they provide to their customers. Actually, they have built their business on that very concept. One of the biggest successes and a driving force to their growth has been, of all things, the lightsaber business. A few years back a potential customer came knocking on the door of JD Ellen Manufacturing. While they had moments of hesitation, they proceeded to work with this customer on the prototype for a toy lightsaber.As a result of the support in the development of prototypes and perfecting the manufacturing process, they have become the single source of manufacturing for this customer. They currently produce over 20,000 subassemblies a year covering 20 different models of lightsabers! David Lewellen, co-founder of JD Ellen with his brother Jacob, says, “Manufacturing is an adventure, not a job. That is why we love to work with customers as they are designing a product from the ground up.”The two brothers say they’ve worked with their customers to take a half dozen prototype products to production, and their customers really appreciate their ‘out of box’ thinking and design support for better ease of manufacturing. Machining is in the Lewellen family’s blood. Father, David Lewellen Sr., founded a machine shop in Rockford, Illinois more than a quarter of a century ago. Prior to selling his business in 1996, it had grown to an 80-man machine shop. David Sr. retired to Arizona, but soon grew tired of not working. He encouraged his sons David and Jacob to open a small shop that he could participate in the initial startup.That was 7 years A2Z METALWORKER

ago, and while the team always envisioned keeping the business small (3-4 machines), from the onset it grew rather quickly. Jake says, “We’ve seen double digit growth every year since we opened for business, and we now own 16 machines. Bryan Johnson, Business Manager for Ellison Machinery Company for the past 3.5 years says, “These guys are doing things the right way. From the beginning, they have managed their growth, not too fast, so that they can always take excellent care of their customer’s needs, while manufacturing superior products. Also, they are extremely financially solvent; in fact they owe nothing on any of their machines.” The company, ISO 9001 Certified and ITAR Registered for the past few years, has grown from 1 bay to 3 bays, and plans to purchase the building this year. Jake says, “We’ll knock out walls to maximize the use of our space. Still, in tight quarters, we maximize the manufacturing that occurs by running 24 hours a day, 5.5 days per week.” From the onset, JD Ellen Manufacturing supported customers in the gun industry. David says that the weapons industry comprises a large share of their business today, at about 60%, and the rest of their customers span the commercial and aerospace industry. Jake says, “We do anything from toys to weapons for our customers!” JD Ellen specializes in machining, while also taking advantage of technology such as in-house wire EDM capabilities and 3D printing. Jake says, “Our 3D printer is invaluable for our customers’ prototypes, as it provides an excellent way to


quickly get a product into their hands. It helps them to see the aesthetics and ergonomics of their concept product.” From the time Jacob and David opened their business, they have been strong believers in the Haas machines. David says, “There is no competition to the Haas for us.Why spend 3X on a machine, when the more economical Haas machines will do it for us?” Jake says, “We’ll look at the DMG/Mori Seiki brands down the road if we see a demand from our customers in machining with exotic metals. It’s just not needed now.” Jake says, “We really like the Haas machines for their ease of use.We’ve also seen a focus on the increased quality and rigidity of the product lines over the years. We appreciate that their focus in the last years has been to improve their machine tool product line, from safety, to maintenance, to ease of use, rather than making new models.” David and Jake value the support they receive from Ellison Machinery Co. LLC, the Haas Factory Outlet providing sales and service support in Arizona and southern Nevada. David says, “They have an excellent service team to support their customers. We had a monitor go blank recently, and we had a Service Technician here within 2 hours! Ellison service and support exceeds our expectations and is the basis for the partnership that has grown between our companies.” Jake says, “The Ellison service team is made up of extremely knowledgeable technicians that bring the company’s dedication to their customers with them on every call. Danny White, one of their Service Technicians, is outstanding.When he comes out to support us, he always takes the time to teach us something new. He has helped us so much. In

fact, Danny should get a raise!” JD Ellen Manufacturing’s latest upgrades to their Haas machine tool line included a Haas VF-4, with a 10,000-RPM spindle and the addition of an ST-20SSY lathe with live tooling capabilities. The addition of the live tooling allows them to complete more parts with reduced setups and reduced operations, while also reducing the risk of error by part handling. JD Ellen has a true partnership with Bryan Johnson, their Ellison Machinery Business Manager. David says, “Bryan comes out to see us on a regular basis, and he is always proactively supporting us. It seems that whenever we are thinking about a new machine, Bryan senses it and is on our doorstep at just the right time. This partnership began years ago, even before Bryan’s arrival, when Patrick Ellison, now President of Ellison Machinery Co, was our business manager. This type of continuity is extremely important to us as we continue to grow in the right direction.” For more information on JD Ellen Manufacturing, particularly if you are looking for support for your prototype to production, contact them at 623-587-0253 or visit jdellenmfg.com.

BAE to continue support for US Army’s COSMIC contract

A wide range of engineering and technical services, including the development and integration of electronic systems for surveillance and reconnaissance missions, have been provided by the company under COSMIC indefinit-delivery indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract since October 2006. FWC is responsible for development of the army’s space and missile defence doctrine and concepts, evaluation of requirements, and vertical integration of doctrine, organisations, training, materiel, personnel, and facilities activities across ballistic missile defence systems elements. Additional responsibilities include the management of high-performance computer centres, threat scenario design, command and control engineering, as well as advanced concept technology demonstration programs.

BAE Systems has been awarded a contract extension to continue the provision of support services for the US Army Space and Missile Defense Command’s (SMDC) Future Warfare Center (FWC).

Amid Big F-35 Deal, P&W Sees Challenges

Covering supply of research, engineering, and technical services, the $85m contract modification has been awarded as part of the agency’s Concepts and Operations for Space and Missile Defense Integration Capabilities (COSMIC) program.

The low-rate initial production (LRIP) contract with the US military includes 35 jet engines — 32 for installation and three spares — as well as sustainment, support and spare parts. The engines will power 22 of the F-35As for the US Air Force, three of the jump-jet F-35Bs for the Marine Corps and seven F-35C carrier variants for the Navy. Through the first four LRIPs, Pratt has delivered 98 engines to the F-35 program.

Services provided under the contract will be used for development and understanding of missile defence methods and technologies.

Since the delivery of the first production representative engine, costs on the F-135 have dropped by 40 percent. Those cost savings are also seen in the contract for LRIP-5, which saw a 6 percent drop in cost from LRIP-4. A series of decisions to push F-35 purchases to the right has halved expected F-135 sales since 2009. Combined with the end of production

Pratt &Whitney has signed a $1 billion contract for the fifth batch of F-35 Joint Strike Fighter engines and expects to sign a sixth contract shortly, according to the company’s head of military engines.


on the F-119 and slowed sales on the F-117 and F-100 engines, the company is facing a production gap. To help bridge that gap, Pratt is looking for ways to use existing engine designs for new platforms.

M a c h i n e To o l s . c o m launches new platform with comprehensive machine model database The right machine. The right tooling. The right programming. A magical combination that can decrease production time, increase output and add directly to a healthy bottom line. Many shops rely on their regular vendors to suggest a solution, sometimes ending up with what the vendor wants to sell, rather than what the shop needs. The alternative has been a hit or miss internet search that might (or might not) provide a better idea. MachineTools.com was founded in 1999 to aggregate machine and tooling offerings from many different sellers to give shops instant access to a huge world-wide market with many choices. With the June 2013 launch of the New MachineTools.com, founder Stuart Carlin has realized his dream of not only helping visitors find and buy machines and tooling, but also helping them assess their own needs. The new site features a model database that currently has over 150,000 machine and tooling models. And the MachineTools.com staff is busy researching and adding more constantly. “This is the only on-line model database in the world anywhere near this scope,” said Carlin. “The idea was to give buyers a powerful tool to find the right machine model from the right country and then help them buy that machine.” The model database includes machine and tooling specs, manufacturer

Plans are in the works to add sales history and manuals to the model database as well. The redesign includes a new mobile site, and an iPhone/ iPad app, with an Android app on the way. “Mobile is the future,” said Carlin. “We’re making it easy to find machines, tooling, and service from wherever people are and on whatever device they are using.”

Equipment Lease Finance Industry Confidence Gains Again in June The Equipment Leasing & Finance Foundation (the Foundation) released the June 2013 Monthly Confidence Index for the Equipment Finance Industry (MCI-EFI). Designed to collect leadership data, the index reports a qualitative assessment of both the prevailing business conditions and expectations for the future as reported by key executives from the $725 billion equipment finance sector. Overall, confidence in the equipment finance market is 57.3, an increase from the May index of 56.7, reflecting industry participants’ increasing optimism despite continued moderate growth of business investment in equipment. When asked about the outlook for the future, MCI survey respondent Thomas Jaschik, President, BB&T Equipment Finance, said, “Demand for equipment leases has increased significantly over the last 60 days. Whether this is a seasonal factor or an indicator of an improving economy is subject to debate. If demand continues throughout the summer than perhaps we can give the nod to an improving economy.” June 2013 Survey Results: The overall MCI-EFI is 57.3, an increase from the May index of 56.7. When asked to assess their business conditions over the next four months, 19.4% of executives responding said they believe business conditions will improve over the next four months, up from 9.7% in May. 71% of respondents believe business conditions will remain the same over the next four months, down from 87.1% in May. 9.7% believe business conditions will worsen, up from 3.2% the previous A2Z METALWORKER

“Nelson Engineering is absolutely amazing! I met them, trained them on my templates to prepare for certification to ISO9001/AS9100 Revision C. The next call I received a few months later was that they were ready for the audit. And then, they passed certification with ‘0’ findings!” Bretta Kelly, Owner BMSC, Preparing More than 100 Companies for Certification. to get ISO 9001/ AS9100 certified.Though our current customers weren’t requiring it since they have years of experience working with us, we knew that if we wanted to expand our customer base, particularly in the aerospace industry, it was a must.” “But”, he continued, “We additionally wanted to go through the certification process in order to streamline our quality process - we simply had too many procedures.”

For over 50 years, Nelson Engineering Co. has manufactured high precision sheet metal and machined products for the aerospace, defense, semiconductor, medical and commercial industries. John Anglin, president of the company for the past 3 years, says, “We have experienced significant growth year over year for last several years. Our team goes through a strategic planning process each year, and our SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, andThreats) Analysis revealed that we needed to streamline our processes and invest in capital improvements in order to sustain this kind of growth.” The company has been busy doing just that over the past three years.They installed a superior Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system in order to integrate internal and external management of information across the organization. They acquired a metal spinning company, formerly Metal Spinning Solutions, in order to grow their in-house metal spinning capabilities. They have upgraded their machine tool capabilities, the latest providing them with 5th axis machining and live tooling. And perhaps one of the most important upgrades was their recent certification to ISO9001/AS9100 Revision C. John says, “About a year ago we made the decision

Kevin Lowe, Chief Inspector for Nelson Engineering, added, “Every time we had an audit, we would write a new procedure. Prior to ISO/AS9100 certification, we had 48 procedures.Today, we have 6. And we’ve gone from 5 binders to 2. Bretta adds that Kevin was so thorough that they added flowcharts that weren’t in her templates. “Nelson Engineering helped me to make a process improvement in my templates”, she said. John didn’t interview a number of ISO/AS9100 consultants. “We just picked BMSC, founded and owned by Bretta Kelly. I saw articles in the Metalworker each issue, and there were so many satisfied customers. I know these companies through industry associations, and since they recommended BMSC, I made the decision to go with Bretta.” BMSC offers a range of services for those preparing to certify to ISO/AS9100. The most cost effective package is her template package, which allows the company to receive training on the templates, and then they run with it. For those needing more hand holding, Bretta offers more consulting to support the customer. John says, “We initially purchased the templates, and we decided we’d see how far we could get before needing Bretta’s onsite support. Bretta says, “Kevin emailed me a couple of times after they bought the templates with a few questions. A few months later, when I received his call, I thought he was ready to bring me in. He wasn’t, though, he had completed the entire documented system on his own with no consulting help. He was calling to say that Nelson was ready for the audit. And they were, as they passed the audit with ‘0’ findings!” Kevin says, “Bretta’s system is extremely streamlined and concise.” Both Kevin and John agree that her knowledge of the certification process coupled with her personable and professional approach, made it very easy to work with her.They were also pleased that the ISO9001/AS9100 Revision C certification reduced the work required for the NADCAP approval process. John says it entailed 3 days of audits versus the 4 days required before they were certified. For more information on preparing for ISO9001/AS9100 Revision C certification, contact Bretta Kelly at BMSC (602) 445-9400 or visit the website (businessmsc.com).

Construction of the first tanker is scheduled to begin in the third quarter of 2014, with deliveries scheduled to begin in the fourth quarter of 2015, continuing through 2016.The four-ship APT contract will add up to approximately 800 jobs at NASSCO during construction and more than 165 seagoing union jobs during the operation of the vessels. The 610-foot-long tankers are a new “ECO” design that offers improved fuel efficiency and incorporates the latest environmental protection features, including a Ballast Water Treatment System. All of the ECOclass tankers will be constructed at the NASSCO shipyard in San Diego. This contract builds upon the strong relationship NASSCO and APT developed during the construction of five State-class product carriers from 2007 to 2010. The construction and operation of the new vessels are aligned with the Jones Act, which requires that ships carrying cargo between U.S. ports be built in U.S. shipyards.

N A S A Pa r t n e r s with Made-InSpace to Create First Space Bound 3D Printer NASA has officially partnered with Made in Space to develop a printer for space. The goal is to launch the first ever 3D printer in space next year, allowing devices and parts to be manufactured in a zero-gravity environment. Officially called the 3D Printing in Zero-G Experiment, the project will result in a custom 3D printer made specifically for the space agency. The goal is to one day allow space missions to be almost self-sufficient. The 3D printer will allow parts to be manufactured in space and it will also facilitate the creation of tools needed to repair damaged space craft, and to resupply materials that are used up during the course of the missions. One example is the various projects currently in place to put humans on Mars – sending a resupply of consumable items to the planet would take quite a while, making 3D printing a better option.

Made in Space’s CEO Aaron Kemmer said: “The 3D printing experiment with NASA is a step towards the future. The ability to 3D print parts and tools on-demand greatly increases the reliability and safety of space missions while also dropping the cost by orders of magnitude.The first printers will start by building test coupons, and will then build a broad range of parts, such as tools and science equipment.”

Foreign manufacturers bringing jobs to U.S. For decades, U.S. manufacturers fled the country for China to drive down labor costs, then shipped products halfway around the world to sell to Americans, costing the U.S. millions of jobs. Now, some foreign manufacturers are turning that offshoring trend on its head. In 2011, British-based Rolls-Royce began making engine parts in Virginia and shipping them to jet engine factories in Europe and Asia.That same year, Germany-based Siemens started making power-plant turbines in Charlotte, N.C., shipping them mostly to Saudi Arabia and Mexico. Remarkably, the long-jilted U.S. is becoming a manufacturing hotbed for dozens of foreign companies in aerospace, energy, chemicals and other sectors. Many want to be closer to customers in the world’s No. 1 market. Others are taking advantage of blossoming U.S. assets such as low energy costs, a relatively healthy economy, highly productive workers and a cheap dollar. From 2007 to 2012, foreign investment in U.S. manufacturing totaled $493 billion, compared with $270 billion the previous six years, according to the Organization for International Investment. Foreign manufacturers aren’t the only ones waking up to the benefits of making things in the U.S. Since 2010, more than 200 companies, mostly U.S.-based, have brought back production to the states.That phenomenon, known as onshoring, has created about 50,000 factory jobs, reported the Reshoring Initiative, an industry coalition. By 2020, onshoring could generate a few million U.S. manufacturing jobs, including hundreds of thousands at foreign companies, Sirkin said.

That could be a boon for U.S. workers. Foreign manufacturers pay U.S. employees 14 percent more than the industry average, OFII figures show. Faced with rising demand from airlines worldwide, Rolls-Royce opted to build a factory in Virginia to make jet engine discs and ship them across the Atlantic Ocean rather than expand plants in the United Kingdom. One reason is to be closer to customers in the Southeast. Boeing began constructing its 787 Dreamliners in Charleston, S.C., in 2011 and Airbus is building its first U.S. assembly plant in Mobile, Ala. Executives of those companies “can see that you’re making quality parts in super-modern facilities with the best working practices,” said William Powers, chief financial officer of Rolls-Royce North America. While automation is part of the story, the Southeast also offered Rolls-Royce a flexible work environment. InVirginia and other Southern right-to-work states where union representation is low, factory employees typically can both set up and operate a machine, as well as run multiple machines. By contrast, in Europe, collective bargaining agreements often limit workers to single, repetitive tasks that increase labor costs. Partly as a result, from 2005 to 2010, worker productivity increased much faster in the U.S. than in western Europe. Also contributing to faster U.S. productivity gains: The country was hit harder by low-cost Asian competition, forcing companies to cut waste and do more with fewer employees.

The May report shows that 63% of participants predict that economic activity will remain unchanged during the next three months (up from 56% in April), 23% believe that activity will improve (down from 28% in April) and 14% forecast that activity will decline (compared to 16% in April). Metalforming companies expect little change in incoming orders during the next three months, with 34% anticipating an increase in orders (down from 37% in April), 47% predicting no change (compared to 42% last month) and 19% expecting a decrease in orders (down from 21% in April). Average daily shipping levels increased in May. Forty-one percent of participants report that shipping levels are above levels of three months ago (up from 34% in April), 41% report that shipping levels are the same as three months ago (compared to 44% in April), and 18% report a decrease in shipping levels (down from 22% in April). The percentage of metalforming companies with a portion of their workforce on short time or layoff dipped to 11% in May, down from 14% in April. The May figure is similar to one year ago, when 10% of metalformers reported workers on short time or layoff. “Suppliers of metal parts and assemblies experienced modest gains in orders during the first quarter of 2013, but suffered a 6% decrease in shipments compared to March 2012,” said William E. Gaskin, PMA president. “The automotive market is the sector with the strongest shipments, but most other markets have leveled off or declined somewhat from levels consistent with 2012. Expectations for the balance of the year rest on whether Congress and the President are able to address the critical budget and tax issues faced by all manufacturers. Congress and the President need to set aside their partisan differences and take action to ensure that the manufacturing sector continues to grow.” The monthly Business Conditions Report has been conducted by PMA since 1979. Full report results are available at http://www.pma.org/ public/business_reports/pdf/BCREP.pdf. PMA is the full-service trade association representing the $113-billion metalforming industry of North America—the industry that creates precision metal products using stamping, fabricating, spinning, slide forming and roll forming technologies, and other value-added processes. Its nearly 900 member companies also include suppliers of equipment, materials and services to the industry. PMA leads innovative member companies toward superior competitiveness and profitability through advocacy, networking, statistics, the PMA Educational Foundation, FABTECH and METALFORM tradeshows, and MetalForming and Fabricating Product News magazines.

Researchers From US, Other NationsTurn Cement Into Metal Using Lasers The Atlantic reports, “A collective of researchers from the US, Finland, Germany, and Japan, working with the US Department of Energy, has developed a way to make metal out of the straw of the contemporary world: cement. The process they discovered, published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, transforms liquid cement into a kind of glass-metal fusion that is exceptionally good at conducting heat and electricity. The resulting hybrid, the scientists say, can be used as a semiconductor in electronics: it offers good conductivity, low energy loss in magnetic fields, better resistance to corrosion than traditional metal, less brittleness than traditional glass, and fluidity for ease of processing and molding.”

Gold Tech Industries, an ISO:9001/AS9100 Rev. C, Precision Plating and Metal Finishing Company, Is Now Fully NADCAP Accredited! Gold Tech Industries knows that to continue to service their customers, they must embrace continuous improvement. In 2011, they achieved ISO:9001/AS9100 Revision C certification, then in 2012, NADCAP accreditation for three of their special processes. This year, they took the next step to achieve NADCAP accreditation on all 10 of their special processes. This ITAR registered company is preparing to celebrate its 30th year in business and is a recognized leader in precision plating and metal finishing applications for the aerospace, defense, automotive, commercial, telecommunications, and semiconductor industries.Their customers are located throughout the world, and they include Boeing, General Dynamics, Honeywell, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, and Northrop Grumman. The team at Gold Tech that spearheaded the rigorous NADCAP accreditation includes: Brett Malacky, Project Manager; Julie Flickinger, Quality Manager; Mark Duschek, Environmental Compliance Manager; and Daren Hess, Technical Process Manager. Mark says, “We knew the accreditation to 10 processes was going to be a challenge, as we had been through it just over a year ago for 3 processes. It was, indeed, more than 3-fold the effort, but we are so excited that we can now offer these accredited processes for all of our customers.” Brett added, “We know that our customers, the Prime Contractors and their supply chains, had made NADCAP accreditation a requirement, and we achieved the accreditation as part of our commitment to continuous improvement and superior customer service.” The company built its reputation on superior product quality, cycle time, and customer satisfaction. This position in the industry has, in part, resulted from the company’s ability and willingness to respond to challenging proposals involving exotic base materials, unique design configurations, and intricate plating and masking requirements. Brett says, “We successfully accomplish these challenges because of the expertise of our staff, and our management team has a combined 171 years of tenure with the company.” Gold Tech’s NADCAP Accredited Metal Finishing & Plating Processes GoldTech Industries’ Aerospace Division works with the following substrates: Aluminum, Copper, Mu Metal, Steel Alloys, Beryllium Copper, Hastelloy, Nickel Alloys, Silver, Brass, Invar, Kovar, Tellurium Copper, Inconel, Monel, and Stainless Steel.

The rocket is designed to carry astronauts farther into the solarsystem than ever before. Meanwhile, NASA plans to leave travel to low-Earth orbit to commercial space companies, which are developing private space taxis to take over the job vacated by the retired space shuttle. “We started working on Space Launch System concepts 10 years ago,” said former astronaut David Leestma, a veteran of three space shuttle missions, who now heads the Technology Transfer and Commercialization Office at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston. “We want to take NASA well beyond the space station. The SLS will be the most powerful rocket ever built, and it will be safe, affordable and sustainable.” The new super-rocket will be able to boost 143 tons (130 metric tons) to orbit using many existing components in its construction. The main liquid-fueled engines are leftovers from the shuttle program, as are the giant solid rocket boosters that will flank the rocket. Only the core, or central structure, will be completely new. The solid rocket boosters are being readied by Alliant Techsystems (ATK).They need to be adapted for use on the SLS, and the changes are “right on budget and on schedule for a 2017 unmanned test fight,” said Don Sauvageau, who works at the engine design firm. “Affordability is a big factor, and these will be 30 percent cheaper than they were for the shuttle,” he said. Atop the giant booster will be NASA’s Orion capsule. Orion is slated for a test flight with the Atlas V rocket in 2014, during which the heat shield and re-entry systems will re-enter Earth’s atmosphere at speeds similar to a lunar return. NASA hopes to have Orion ready for a crewed flight by 2021. The lifting ability of the SLS will allow the rocket to deliver payloads to a position called L2 (a stable orbit beyond the moon), perform an asteroid mission, or even fly an unmanned sample return from the moons of Mars. It would also allow NASA to send probes directly to planets like Jupiter without the lengthy gravity-assist swings by Venus and Earth as have been undertaken for missions launched by less powerful rockets. Transit times to the giant planet would be cut down to about three years. The test flight in 2017 is planned to go beyond lunar orbit, with the upper stage of the booster powered by derivatives of Pratt & Whitney/ Rocketdyne’s J2 engines, which date back to the Apollo program.

Boeing Raises Twenty-Year Commercial Jet Forecast Bloomberg News reports Boeing “raised its 20-year forecast for commercial jet demand by 3.8 percent as air traffic outstrips global economic growth and airlines refresh their fleets with $4.8 trillion in new planes.” Randy Tinseth, marketing vice president for commercial airplanes at Boeing, said he did not see a “bubble” in the market even as the company considers raising production rates. However, Richard Aboulafia, an analyst with the Teal Group, warned inexpensive financing and oil prices could change these numbers. Meanwhile, Howard Rubel, an analyst with Jefferies LLC, predicted that Boeing and Airbus would continue to dominate the market as new entrants are just starting to come to the market. The AP reports that speaking ahead of the Bourget international air show in Paris, Tinseth, “said rising oil prices are forcing carriers to think harder about efficiency, and that means smaller planes that burn less fuel.” That “also means design changes, streamlined air traffic control and improved navigation to shave miles (kilometers) off each flight.” The AP notes, “The demand for fuel efficiency has eaten away at orders for the wide-body long haul carriers that are major profit-drivers for Boeing and Airbus, the world’s two biggest aircraft manufacturers.”

Household Wealth Beginning To Rise Again New data shows American household wealth rebounding in recent months, with the Wall Street Journal reporting a new Federal Reserve study found the net worth of US households rose 4.5 percent in the first quarter of 2013 to $70.35 trillion – the highest level since at least 2007. USA Today reports, “That topped the previous peak of $68 trillion in the third quarter of 2007, just before the recession began. In the January-March quarter, gains in stocks and mutual funds accounted for about half the nation’s $3 trillion increase in wealth. Rising home prices made up about one-fourth. The rest came from higher pension fund reserves, greater ownership of cars and other goods and lower debts.” The NewYork Times reports, “The implosion of the housing sector, and the stock market tumble in 2008 and early 2009 took a huge toll on the net worth of American families. Between 2007 and 2008, household net worth dropped by nearly $13 trillion, a decline of nearly 20 percent.” The Times notes, “The Federal Reserve report also showed that Americans continued to reduce debt levels and strengthen their personal balance sheets. Household borrowing sank by an annual rate of 0.6 percent in the first quarter of 2013.”

Delcam expands North American support team Lockheed Martin Orion capsule completes 227227 structural testing Lockheed Martin’s Orion spacecraft has finished structural testing and is structurally prepared for its first launch in September, 2014. The capsule was tested to 110% of expected loads from such traumatic events as launch, separation and re-entry into Earth’s atmosphere. “The static loads campaign is our best method of testing to verify what works on paper will work in space,” says Charlie Lundquist, NASA’s Orion crew and service module manager. “This is how we validate our design.” Small cracks discovered in 2012 after limited structural testing raised concerns about the design of the Lockheed spacecraft.Though Lockheed repaired the damage and expressed confidence in its solution, the formal completion of structural tests is a relief to both the company and NASA. Orion is scheduled for a first flight in September, 2014, atop a Boeing Delta IV launch vehicle. Though not capable of reaching the velocity necessary to escape Earth’s gravity well using the Delta IV, NASA projects the capsule will re-enter Earth’s atmosphere with 84% of the energy required for a lunar flight. Orion will enter orbit propelled by the Space Launch System, a Space Shuttle-derived series of solid rocket motors capable of boosting such payloads as far as the Moon and even Mars. SLS will not fly until 2017 A2Z METALWORKER

4 companies explain their moves to Phoenix The Greater Phoenix Economic Council hosted a forum last month at its downtown Phoenix office to feature companies that it helped bring to the Valley.

In the past three years, GPEC worked with more than 100 companies to expand or relocate to the greater Phoenix region, and this fiscal year has helped more than 30 companies come to the area, said Barry Broome, GPEC’s president and CEO.

• New-York based ZocDoc opened a Scottsdale office three months ago to reach a West Coast audience for its free website and application that allows patients to find a nearby doctor or dentist.

Keith Diekmann, Dalsin’s operations manager, said the incentives provided to companies to move to the Valley are mainly for large companies. Dalsin has 180 employees, with 42 jobs here, and couldn’t qualify for the incentives.“It would be nice to have incentives for smaller businesses,” Diekmann said.

• Dalsin Industries Inc., a family-owned custom sheet metal fabrication company based in Bloomington, Minn., opened a west Phoenix regional manufacturing facility in December because the state is close to California, has a multitude of direct flights and is close to subcontractors and vendors the company works with.

The three companies who moved here also liked the existing empty buildings that are generally move-in ready. GPEC keeps a list of the large, vacant properties in the area to provide to companies, Broome said.

• Silent-Aire, a Canadian custom HVAC and data center cooling systems manufacturer, opened a Gilbert manufacturing facility in April. The company chose the state for its mild winters, proximity to SiliconValley and it’s only a three-hour direct flight to Edmonton. • Stealth Software, a Dutch software development company, announced in February it was opening its U.S. headquarters in the Phoenix area, but is still choosing a site. These four growing companies say the area’s highly-skilled workforce, low cost of living, and general business climate were among the factors why company CEOs chose the state.

ZocDoc has 10,000 square feet in Scottsdale, and has plans to have 600 local employees and move to a bigger office. Dalsin leased a 75,000-square-foot building to hold its large machines, and has plans for future expansion. The plan is for 150 local employees. Silent-Aire moved into an existing 50,000-square-foot building to double its manufacturing capacity and put the company into a position for future growth. About 100-150 employees are expected in the new few years. Stealth Software has plans to hire 200 people and wants to help put Arizona on the global map.“We want to help push Arizona into a high degree of excellence to be recognized around the world,” said Marty Schwarzkopf, who works in business development.

Orbital will provide its LEOStar-2 spacecraft platform and conduct systems integration and test for the Ionospheric Connection Explorer (ICON) mission at its Dulles, VA satellite design and production facilities. Orbital’s contract for the two-year mission is valued at $50 million. The mission, which will be led by the University of California at Berkeley, is currently planned for launch in 2017. The mission of the ICON satellite is to study the interface between the upper reaches of the Earth’s atmosphere and outer space in response to a recent scientific discovery that the ionosphere, positioned at the edge of space where the Sun ionizes the air to create charged particles, is significantly influenced by storms in the lower atmosphere. ICON will also help NASA better understand how atmospheric winds control ionospheric variability. The mission, chosen for its scientific value and low-risk development plan, will improve the forecasts of extreme space weather by probing the variability of Earth’s ionosphere with in-situ and remote-sensing instruments.

The scientific findings resulting from the ICON mission could, for example, benefit commercial aircraft, as GPS signals can be distorted by chargedparticle storms in the ionosphere. ICON was awarded under NASA’s Explorer series of lower-cost and highly-productive space science satellites. Orbital has built multiple Explorer satellites for NASA, including the in-orbit NuSTAR, Swift, GALEX, AIM and IBEX spacecraft. In addition, Orbital was recently awarded a $75 million contract to design, build, integrate and test, as well as to perform mission operations, for another Explorer satellite, the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS). The ICON program is being led by Principal Investigator (PI) Dr. Thomas Immel of the University of California/Berkeley’s Space Sciences Laboratory (UCB/SSL) and mission management is performed by UCB/SSL under NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center Explorers program. The ICON mission will rely on Orbital’s LEOStar-2 platform, a flexible, high-performance spacecraft for space and Earth science, remote sensing and other applications. The LEOStar-2 series of spacecraft have supported multiple missions for commercial and government customers over the past 15 years. The current LEOStar-2 product line has demonstrated an exceptional record for reliability, with four currently in orbit, another in production, and the TESS and ICON programs to be started later this year.

problem. “People think it’s a dark den with grease dripping on floors, a sweat shop.”

At one point in time, the U.S. had a large manufacturing workforce, but as work was moved offshore, their ranks dwindled, Parker said. Now as workers age, the industry is at a crossroads where it must recruit new ones.

But today’s manufacturing plants are cleaner and more sophisticated. For instance, West Pharmaceuticals manufactures insulin pens for diabetics and EpiPens to treat anaphylaxis.

“There are a lot of opportunities available,” said Todd Kuhn, director of engineering and tooling technology for West Pharmaceuticals Services Inc. in Scottsdale, which recently hired two students who completed EVIT’s high school precision manufacturing program. Kuhn said there’s actually a misconception that all U.S. manufacturing is done overseas, when much of it is still done in the United States. The industry has struggled to attract young people for training “in an age of video games and iPhones.They don’t think about technology in industrial fields,” he said. Instead, he added, they are drawn to video game schools thinking they’ll develop the next Xbox game, when in reality, very few will do so. Parker said manufacturing has also suffered from an image

Kuhn said most precision machinists start at $15 to $17 per hour and can easily double that over the course of their career to $30 to $35 per hour. Parker said the national average pay is about $77,000. Academically, precision machining requires a basic background in math. And, while manufacturing may sound like men’s work, women tend to be particularly good at it, especially the detailed work, Parker said. In fact, someone in a salon who uses a manicure drill is actually doing a type of precision machining. Precision manufacturing is just one of more than 40 adult education programs offered at EVIT.

Organic Polymers Show Sunny Potential: Groundwork Laid for Block Copolymer Solar Cells A new version of solar cells created by laboratories at Rice and Pennsylvania State universities could open the door to research on a new class of solar energy devices. The photovoltaic devices created in a project led by Rice chemical engineer Rafael Verduzco and Penn State chemical engineer Enrique Gomez are based on block copolymers, self-assembling organic materials that arrange themselves into distinct layers.They easily outperform other cells with polymer compounds as active elements. While commercial, silicon-based solar cells turn about 20 percent of sunlight into electricity and experimental units top 25 percent, there’s been an undercurrent of research into polymer-based cells that could greatly reduce the cost of solar energy, Verduzco said. The Rice/Penn State cells reach about 3 percent efficiency, but that’s surprisingly better than other labs have achieved using polymer compounds. “You need two components in a solar cell: one to carry (negative) electrons, the other to carry positive charges,” Verduzco said. The imbalance between the two prompted by the input of energy -- sunlight -- creates useful current. Since the mid-1980s, researchers have experimented with stacking or mixing polymer components with limited success, Verduzco said. Later polymer/fullerene mixtures topped 10 percent efficiency, but the fullerenes -- in this case, enhanced C-60 buckyballs -- are difficult to work with, he said. The Rice lab discovered a block copolymer -- P3HT-b-PFTBT -- that separates into bands that are about 16 nanometers wide. More interesting to the researchers was the polymers’ natural tendency to form bands perpendicular to the glass.The copolymer was created in the presence of a glass/indium tin oxide (ITO) top layer at a modest 165 degrees Celsius. With a layer of aluminum on the other side of the device constructed by the Penn State team, the polymer bands stretched from the top to bottom electrodes and provided a clear path for electrons to flow. “On paper, block copolymers are excellent candidates for organic solar cells, but no one has been able to get very good photovoltaic performance using block copolymers,”Verduzco said. “We didn’t give up on the idea of block copolymers because there’s really only been a handful of these types of solar cells previously tested. We thought getting good performance using block copolymers was possible if we designed the right materials and fabricated the solar cells under the right conditions.” He said the researchers want to experiment with other block copolymers and learn to control their structures to increase the solar cell’s ability to capture photons and turn them into electricity. Once they have achieved higher performance from the cells, the team will look at long-term use. The National Science Foundation, the Department of Energy, the


Welch Foundation, the Shell Center for Sustainability and the Louis and Peaches Owen Family Foundation supported the research.

BAE to supply hardware for US Army’s ATIRCM system

missile seeker. Originally launched in 2009, the CIRCM competition covers development and installation of missile jammer on the US military helicopters to increase defence against heat-seeking missiles, such as those launched from man-portable air defense systems (MANPADS). Having logged more than 125,000 hours with a field reliability measure in excess of 700 hours, the system is claimed to be represents the most reliable laser-based directable infrared countermeasure technology to have been fielded since 2008.

BAE Systems has been awarded a $68m contract for supply of hardware for the US Ar my’s advanced threat infrared countermeasure (ATIRCM) system.

Upon discovering the missile, the jam head emits an energy beam to defeat the incoming

Arizona congressional delegates tackle state’s manufacturing challenges by Ilana Lowery, Editor-Phoenix Business Journal Education and the need for more skilled workers in the state’s manufacturing sector was front and center at the Arizona Manufacturers Council’s 2013 Manufacturer of the Year Summit held last month in downtown Phoenix. The most interesting part was a bipartisan panel discussion focusing on federal issues affecting manufacturing. Participants included congressional representatives from Arizona, U.S. Reps. Matt Salmon (Dist. 5), David Schweikert (Dist. 6) and Kyrsten Sinema (Dist. 9).

Moderator Aric Newhouse, senior vice president for policy and government relations for the National Association of Manufacturers, led the discussion. It touched on a number of topics including federal funding, tax reform and the frustrations the representatives face inWashington when they try to get anything done. Watch the video above to see part of their discussion.

As Wars End, a Rush to Grab Dollars Spent on the Border Half a dozen major military contractors, including Raytheon, Lockheed Martin and General Dynamics, are preparing for an unusual desert showdown here this summer, demonstrating their military-grade radar and long-range camera systems in an effort to secure a Homeland Security Department contract worth as much as $1 billion. Northrop Grumman, meanwhile, is pitching to Homeland Security officials an automated tracking device — first built for the Pentagon to find roadside bombs in Afghanistan — that could be mounted on aerial drones to find illegal border crossers. And General Atomics, which manufactures the reconnaissance drones, wants to double the size of the fleet under a recently awarded contract worth up to $443 million. The military-style buildup at the border zone, which started in theTucson area late in the Bush administration, would become all but mandatory under the bill pending before the Senate. It requires that within six months of enactment, Homeland Security submit a plan to achieve “effective control” and “persistent surveillance” of the entire 1,969-mile land border with Mexico, something never before accomplished. For military contractors, that could be a real boon. “There are only so many missile systems and Apache attack helicopters you can sell,” said Dennis L. Hoffman, an Arizona State University economics professor who has studied future potential markets for the defense industry. “This push toward border security fits very well with the need to create an ongoing stream of revenue.” Since 2005, the number of Border Patrol agents has doubled to 21,000, and the stretches protected by pedestrian or vehicle fencing have grown to 651 miles as of last year from 135. But there are still large swaths where people trying to enter the United States illegally have good odds of success, particularly in rural Texas. And with budget cutting in the past two years, money for surveillance equipment along the border has been pared back. Military contractors have not played a significant role in lobbying for the passage of the immigration legislation, which includes $4.5 billion to bolster border security over the next five years. Homeland Security would have to decide, in consultation with Congress, how to divide the money — on long-range cameras, radar systems, mobile surveillance equipment, aircraft or lower-tech solutions like more border agents or physical fences — decisions that would determine how various contractors might fare. “It has been a tough time for the industry: people have been laid off or furloughed,” said James P. Creaghan, a lobbyist who represents a small Texas company, Personal Defense, which is trying to sell more nightvision goggles to Homeland Security. “This could help out.” Northrop has won some important allies on Capitol Hill, who are urging the department to invest more in Northrop’s drone-mounted surveillance system, calledVader. General Atomics, which Mr. D’Amato represents, has so much support in Congress that it has pressed Homeland


Security in recent years to buy more Predator drones than the department has the personnel to operate, so they often sit unused, according to an agency audit.

INTRODUCING...“NEW” PRODUCTS FROM THE NAME YOU CAN TRUST... ®

IC R O OO The specific requirement in the legislation now before the Senate is that Homeland Security must install surveillance equipment or other measures that would allow it to apprehend or turn back 9 out of 10 people trying to illegally enter across all sectors of the southern land border. The department would be prohibited from moving ahead with the “pathway to citizenship” for immigrants already in the United States until this new security strategy is “substantially operational.” TheTucson area, for years the busiest crossing point for illegal immigrants, has served as the testing ground for the federal government’s hightechnology border effort, although even senior Homeland Security officials acknowledge it got off to a poor start. Boeing was selected back in 2006, when the last major push by Congress to rewrite the nation’s immigration laws was under way, to create a “virtual fence” that would use radar and video systems to identify and track incursions, information that would then be beamed to regional command centers and border agents in the field.

But the technological solutions still have many advocates in Arizona, where Border Patrol officials contend that the equipment Boeing installed, despite its flaws, has fundamentally changed the cat-and-mouse game that plays out every day.

“What you see today is like night and day compared to what we had,” said Cmdr. Jeffrey Self of the Border Patrol, who oversees the Tucson region. The Boeing system, along with the surge in Border Patrol agents, has resulted in a major drop in attempted illegal crossings, he said, with apprehensions dropping 80 percent since their peak in 2000, considered a sign of a drop in overall traffic. Homeland Security has been preparing for more than a year to expand this system, under a new contract that would rely on proven surveillance technology.That is why the military contractors vying for the job will be asked in coming weeks to demonstrate their gear. The department also wants to identify a mix of equipment — some on fixed towers, others on trucks for mobility — so that officials can tailor uses to the different needs along the border. Department officials said their choices would be driven by a determination of what the best available tools were for securing the border, not what the defense contractors or their lobbyists were pitching. Customs and Border Protection officials, said Michael J. Friel, a department spokesman in a statement, are “dedicated to continuing this progress towards a safer, stronger and more secure border.”

In Rosie’s Honor: A Call for More Women in the Growing U.S. Manufacturing Sector By PMA Women in Manufacturing Director Allison Grealis

Last month marked the 70th anniversary of the publishing of Norman Rockwell’s iconic “Rosie the Riveter” painting on the cover of the Saturday Evening Post. Rosie, with her tools on her lap and strong muscles clad in denim, became a symbol for a movement and the number of working American women nearly doubled between 1940 and 1944. The first generation of Rosies went to work to support the war effort and many took on the factory jobs typically reserved for men, but open to women as more and more men deployed to combat. Many of these Rosies’ stories can be found on the National Park Service’s website dedicated to American World War II Home Front. A favorite story is that of Delana Close. Delana worked 10 hour shifts at a manufacturing company producing 155 millimeter howitzer field guns. She was assigned to a thirty-five foot long boring. A huge pan filled with oil A Z METALWORKER 2

kept the machine greased and cool. For 10 hours, Delana would balance on the edge of the oil pan so she would be tall enough to see the gun barrel she was working on. From her perch, she would bore out a hole for the gun’s breach lock. Her work had to be perfect. A mistake of one-one thousandth of an inch could mean death for an American soldier on the battlefield. Delana was the only woman to ever work that machine. And, when the war was over, and Delana finished her last shift, her foreman shook her hand and said, “You were the best man I ever had.” When the men returned from war, Delana and many of the other Rosies were pushed out of their factory jobs and returned to life in positions society deemed more acceptable for women. Today, a full 70 years since Rosie the Riveter first graced the cover of the Saturday Evening Post, the same stigma surrounds American manufacturing jobs. But far from its reputation as dark, dirty and dangerous, manufacturing in the U.S. today is thriving and high-tech. Over the past three

years, the U.S. has added more than half a million manufacturing jobs. Despite recent slowdowns in growth, manufacturers are still experiencing a steady climb and anticipate consistent business conditions. In addition, more jobs are coming from firms who are bringing production to the U.S. There are a variety of factors that contribute to the growing strength of the manufacturing sector including a shrinking wage gap between the US and China, an increase in shipping costs and a surge in shale gas drilling which provides the U.S. with a wealth of inexpensive domestic energy. But one simple reality is that while the U.S. manufacturing sector grows, the number of women working in the sector is not following that trend. Although women hold about half of the jobs in the U.S. economy today, they occupy less than 25 percent of the STEM – science, technology, engineering and math – jobs. In fact, only 30 percent of the estimated 14 million Americans who work in manufacturing are women. These numbers are especially striking when

juxtaposed with the number of women in manufacturing today who are pleased with their jobs. According to a recent study by Deloitte and the Manufacturing Institute, a majority of women in the manufacturing sector report being highly satisfied with their careers. A full 75% of the women surveyed agreed that the manufacturing sector offers interesting and rewarding career opportunities. Importantly, one of the reported reasons for women’s contentment with careers in manufacturing is the ability to balance work and family obligations. This research is a significant step in debunking the long-standing myths that manufacturing is not a suitable career for women and that it is not conducive to family life. And proving these stereotypes false is especially important for two reasons: First, women have a major role in the American workforce today and, secondly, there are many thousands of highskill, highly compensated jobs to fill. A new study by the Pew Research Center shows a major sea change in the role of women in the workforce.Women, the study found, are now the single income or primary

breadwinners in 40 percent of American households with children under 18 – that’s a record high. At the same time, Deloitte and others have noted that approximately 600,000 manufacturing jobs are going unfilled in this country. The problem of the “skills gap” – manufacturing sector employers looking to hire, but unable to find qualified, skilled workers – cannot be solved by focusing on only one half of our country’s population. Thus, the compelling combination of the newly high number of women excelling in the workforce, the number of women who are pleased with their jobs in manufacturing and the glut of open manufacturing jobs provides a unique opportunity to attract more top-tier female talent to the manufacturing sector. In honor of Rosie’s 70th anniversary and that first generation of Rosies who ventured into the factories during World War II, we should make a commitment as a nation to support women in STEM education and careers. I am proud to be the program director for the Precision Metalforming Association’s

Women in Manufacturing (WiM) initiative. Launched in 2011, WiM is dedicated to providing a community to support women currently engaged in or considering careers in manufacturing. WiM members share perspectives, gain cutting-edge industry information, develop personal and professional skills in leadership and communication, and participate in mentoring programs and network with industry peers at online and in-person. Last summer, a space rover named Curiosity landed on the surface of Mars. The name Curiosity was suggested by a 12-year-old girl from Kansas who submitted an essay as part of a NASA naming contest. “Curiosity,” she wrote, “is an everlasting flame that burns in everyone’s mind.... Curiosity is the passion that drives us through our everyday lives.” Today, inspired by the legacy of Rosie the Riveter and by the little girl who wrote that essay and who dreams of studying math and science and college, I hope you’ll join us in a commitment to support women in growing U.S. manufacturing sector.

use of social media. Social media continues to play a pivotal role in day-to-day commerce. It offers shoppers valuable resources, from product evaluations and opinions to advice and trends to watch, but what about social media’s influence in the manufacturing sector, the source of consumer satisfaction? According to a recent survey by the Manufacturing Leadership Council, 13 percent of manufacturing executives plan to digitize their design/ production processes, and social media tools represent an important component. By 2023, that percentage will rise to more than half (53%). What’s the goal of increased social media-based interactions? Manufacturers want to tap into valuable customer opinions, preferences and desires. They also want to encourage collaborations between employees, partners and suppliers in order to create better end products. For example, Frito Lay, the snack food maker, offers one illustration of a manufacturer going directly to its core constituency for critical product feedback. The company collaborated with customers via social media to define and select the most appealing flavor ideas. Such combinations of crowdsourcing—a form of distributive problem-solving—and taste buds represents a novel, and completely different, approach to the use of social media in manufacturing. At the other end of the spectrum, a range of more industrial companies are beginning to employ social media-driven, collaborative tools for their workforce. Aircraft manufacturer, Airbus, offers partners and dealers a range of interactive procurement portals. These platformbased resources enable suppliers to describe their capabilities to Airbus buyers in addition to exchanging requirements and proposals online during the bid process. Such social media trends extend even further. Industrial Mold and Machine in Twinsburg, Ohio makes custom molds for plastic bottle manufacturers. The company empowers its workers by providing an iPad-accessible Social Media platform for production-line quality control, design access and problem-solving.
