Hybrid Manufacturing By Ma x K aplan Comments? Email

A new generation of additive manufacturing technology combines the speed and precision of metal subtraction with the versatility and efficiency of metal deposition.


The first commercially available hybrid manufacturing machine created by Hamuel and Hybrid Manufacturing Technologies. This mill/turn style machine is designed to repair turbine fan blades.


he past year has shown great development in the field of additive manufacturing. A car was printed in Chicago, a five story apartment building in China, NASA has turned to 3D printing to make rocket parts, and electron beam-based additive processes are pushing the boundaries of precision. Even so, the manufacturing industry still struggles to find a place for additive manufacturing on the factory floor. But there are good reasons for doubt – the technology, though more than thirty years old, still has a long way to go before it becomes an integral component of the manufacturing environment. However, a new variant of the process, called hybrid manufacturing, may change that. Late in 2007, Jason Jones was teaching high speed machining at De Montfort University in the UK. Marveling at the sophisticated motion system of a newly-acquired machine, a colleague, David Wimpenny posed a simple question, “What do you think about putting a laser cladding head into a milling machine?” Jones, a PhD in 3D printing, would devote himself to answering this question. Armed with some sketches and a £1 million in research grants, Jones and his team were able to develop a working prototype of their revolutionary hybrid machine over the course of four years. The hybrid concept integrates with an existing multiaxis CNC machine and has three major components: a deposition head, a powder and gas delivery system, and a fiber laser unit. When needed, the additive head is loaded into the spindle by the tool changer. The docking system attaches to the head, delivering metal powder and shielding gas, and connecting the head to the laser unit. Parts are grown from a continuous bead of metal as the head welds layers one atop the next. Once a rough shape is built up, the machine switches over to standard milling operations, cutting the part down to its final size. Jones’ team realized early-on that hybrid

manufacturing would revolutionize the repair of high value parts, such as turbine blades. Trials revealed that the original CAD files did not match up with the parts in need of repair – heat and stress had altered their shapes to a substantial degree. The machine would need to interact with the part to alter the existing digital model for accurate deposition and cutting. Working with experts at Delcam, Jones developed an adaptive CAM solution which uses a spindle-mounted touch probe to generate a new CAD model for each part and its unique imperfections. The first two production example of hybrid manufacturing machines are both currently in use repairing high-value parts. The prototype machine, a revitalized Bostomatic, repairs Cummins turbocharger impellers. The second machine, and the first commercially available hybrid solution, was designed in conjunction with German machine tool manufacturer Hamuel specifically to repair worn or pitted turbine blades. Since the first machine was delivered in 2012, the hybrid concept has gained significant traction. DMG Mori released their own hybrid solution in 2013, with Optomec, Mazak and Cybaman announcing their own offerings during the past year. There are many variables that must be explored before the industry is ready to adopt the hybrid concept. The cost of metal powder, for example, is about twice that of conventional stock, laser deposition is slow, at best about 1/10 the speed of a milling operation, and most managers are hesitant to invest in a system which only uses a costly laser unit some of the time. The challenge, therefore, is in learning how to use the hybrid concept in order to best overcome these obstacles. Jones’ company, called Hybrid Manufacturing Technologies, aims to bring a hybrid kit to the market in 2015. A customer will be able to purchase the kit and install it on-site over the course of a few days, turning a conventional multi-axis machine into a hybrid unit without it leaving the shop. Hybrid manufacturing, says Jones, will change the way we look at repair and mold-making. His concept will extend the life of high value, high complexity parts in many industries. Deep-pocket molds with integral cooling and venting pathways will dramatically increase the productivity and reduce the cost of molding operations. Jones admits that the true value of hybrid manufacturing will reveal itself over time. “A standalone 3D printer is like a computer without the internet,” he’s fond of saying. “It can do amazing things by itself, but to change the world we have to combine it with other technologies, we have to make it practical and accessible.”

Machine tool spindles in all their designs and sizes serve as highly advanced technology solutions essential to critical operations on the shop floor. They are routinely used to rotate cutting tools, grinding wheels, or parts to be machined in applications ranging from milling, drilling, and boring to grinding, cutting, and sawing. Spindles perform as complex systems integrating dozens of components critical to machine tool performance. As with any asset, however, defects can arise resulting in spindle breakdowns over time–but it is no longer commonplace to automatically purchase a new spindle when one fails. Instead, spindle repairs and rebuilds have become highly practical options over outright replacement wherever possible. SKF USA Inc. has been a pioneer in developing the necessary know-how and technical support to enable damaged spindles to return to full service and productivity. The company has centralized this expertise at its SKF Solution Factory in Cleveland, OH, a dedicated resource for use by operations anywhere in the country. SAVING TIME AND MONEY

Sometimes, replacing a spindle will be unavoidable. But in the majority of cases, repairs or rebuilds can make a more timely and cost-effective fix. “In fact, on average, the lead time for delivery of a new replacement spindle can run as long as six months,” notes Ed Zitney, who is manager of the SKF Solution Factory-Cleveland and has more than 33 years of experience. “By comparison, repairs to a spindle usually can be made in less than two weeks and, in some instances, in just a few days.” Timing is not the only benefit. According to Zitney, the price tag for a new spindle can average as much as triple the cost of a rebuilt unit, in part because a repair or rebuild will only involve the defective components. Even better news: Spindles can be rebuilt many times over without compromising performance in service. SKF’s extensive history of partnering with customers for spindle repair and rebuilds has led to countless success stories. “One of our customers had repeatedly experienced high failure rates for its machine tool spindles,” Zitney

recalls. “Their response was simply to replace the spindle bearings every time, because the bearings were noticeably compromised from an ingress of coolant.” But this approach didn’t do the long-term job: Spindle problems continued to persist and units would go down every four to six weeks in a vicious cycle. “When we were consulted,” Zitney explains, “our focus first turned to the coolant issue. The ingress of coolant through a spindle’s seals, labyrinth, or covers must always be avoided, because the coolant can wash out the grease or oil from the bearings and ultimately attack the spindle’s shaft, motor, and electronics.” The lesson for the customer: Simply replacing the bearings and taking no other actions would never resolve the root cause of the spindle failures. “As part of our repair and rebuild process, “ Zitney reports, “we took a careful look at the spindle’s sealing system and then initiated proactive measures for a long-term solution to the coolant problem.” Inadequate seals were removed, an air purge was added, new and properly specified seals were installed front and rear, the rear cap was replaced with one that included a

Special Focus seal diameter, and both the shaft and front cap were reworked to accept the new seals. The outcome: The MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) for the customer’s spindles dramatically increased from a matter of only weeks (before the rebuild) to 18 months – more than six times longer than before. Another customer encountered a three-fold problem: A spindle’s existing tool interface was not fulfilling required accuracy and repeatability demands for the application, the design was inefficient for tool changes, and coolant contamination was leading to frequent spindle failure, because the spindle was positioned in a nose-up configuration allowing coolant to flood over the top of the spindle. “Our solution,” Zitney says, “was to convert to an HSK toolholder, which provided a highly accurate, quick, and easy tool change to deliver the desired repeatability. We also redesigned the spindle’s front cap and replaced it with a rotating slinger to dispense the coolant away from the spindle and keep it at bay.” The customer ultimately realized much higher quality, greater efficiency, and a five-fold increase in MTBF for maximized uptime. A spindle assembly is prepared to run and “break in” as part of SKF’s spindle repair and rebuild services.



When a spindle is turned over for repairs, an opportunity can open up to consider upgrading or otherwise customizing a unit to realize improved performance, gain greater versatility, and/or accommodate new or changing application requirements. Making an upgrade while a spindle is already down and due for repair inherently makes economical sense. “Some upgrades for spindles can be relatively simple to implement, while others may become more involved,” Zitney observes, “but all can help improve upon spindle performance and operation.” An SKF customer found this out firsthand. The operation logged ongoing incidents of motor coolant clogging and environmentally related problems with an oil mist lubrication system. As a result, spindles were failing repeatedly due to plugged coolant lines, and overheated motors. “Our solution was to totally replace the spindle with an air-cooled grease-packed version,” Zitney says. “This particular air-cooled spindle resolved all the problems plaguing the motor coolant system and eliminated the costs for coolant tank, pump, and air oil supply. Contamination and clogging disappeared, motors no longer overheated due to clogged coolant lines, and spindle uptime increased. “Even more dramatic from a ‘green’ perspective,” he adds, “the new 5½ HP spindles running at 18,000 RPM compared with the old 15 HP spindles were able to achieve documented power savings by matching the spindle to the required job and not overpowering the

| IMD | FEBRUARY 2015 |

spindle.” The overall power savings translated to an annual reduction of 7000 kilowatts per spindle per 8-hour shift, which multiplies significantly with four spindles running five days per week at three per shifts every day.


SKF customers typically will pose basic questions to assist them in the decision-making on how best to return a failed spindle to service or otherwise improve performance. Among them: • Are you sure that you can successfully repair my “XYZ” spindle? The thinking behind this inquiry is that a customer effectively wants to know for certain that a particular spindle is a prime candidate for repair over replacement – especially since there are thousands of makes and models of spindles. This question can best be answered with as complete a spindle profile as possible. Helpful information includes the spindle’s manufacturer (not always the same as the machine), the model number, maximum RPM, HP (horse power), tool nose configuration, and drive type (belt, gear, coupled, or integral motor). In addition, does the spindle have manual or automatic tool change? Can the spindle’s bearings be identified from the OEM manual? • How long will it take for a repair? Based on initial information from a customer, a best/worst case delivery timeline can generally be developed. When a customer offers accurate information about the spindle and the equipment appears in reasonably good shape, then a delivery date will likely be more on target. If a customer’s spindle is in bad shape or has unseen damage internally, an evaluation by a repair technician will be necessary in determining a true timeline for return to service. • Can an exchange spindle be provided? With thousands of spindles in the field, it is usually only by chance that an exact replacement spindle will be in stock to match a particular unit. Sometimes, though, an alternative model can make an exchange possible. One of the questions most often asked – and with universal appeal – refers both to failed spindles and those in service: How can I get more life from my spindle? Understanding the way that each spindle is used in daily operation is essential to realizing extended spindle lifetime. More often than not, spindles must perform in harsh environments, often leading to potential internal contamination and subsequent failure. When contaminants are present, modifications to a spindle – especially to the sealing system – can be implemented to mitigate problems and extend service life. In some applications, too, a spindle may be run too hard or forced to operate where it was never intended according to its original design. In these cases, design changes can be made to reconfigure and tailor spindle setup consistent with the specific application.

The five-year plan THAT

worked Smiths Machine’s plan for stable growth started with its investment in a stable CNC platform: The steady progression of a stable machine / control platform has enabled the company’s similarly growing workforce to build on existing knowledge, rather than learn new and different versions every few years.

Smiths Machine answered the recession with a formula for major change So what’s the secret to their success?

To begin with, the omission of the apostrophe from the company’s name was deliberate. Being different is in the DNA of Smiths Machine. This is a second-generation, family-owned business that found a way to grow its workforce by 70 people during the last five years That’s a 300% employment surge that mostly happened during the recession, a time when many machine shops (and for that matter, many businesses), were struggling just to hang on. Ahead of the recession, Smiths Machine did what many machine shops were doing at the time. They were riding the wave of automotive parts production and doing seemingly fine, until the massive downturn came. The bankruptcies of the tier one automotive companies suddenly left many machine shops vulnerable to volumebased supply from overseas competition; and a once well-oiled machine tool business model now seemed unstable and uncertain. Equally uncertain was the idea of moving the business in an entirely different direction.

To be or not to be — different

Defense and aerospace part manufacturing require a different business approach altogether, says Tim Smith, vice president of Smiths Machine. “It is specialized work that requires special approvals, log-down processes and complicated procedures,” Smith says. “The complexity is challenging. And it all starts with a different way of thinking, more of an engineering approach than a production approach.”


| IMD | FEBRUARY 2015 |

Smith says his company needed to build a new business model and the operations to support it. The defense and aerospace machining market is characterized by small lot counts, generally lower margins, and a very low tolerance for errors. Scrap rates thought to be nominal in the past would now be out of the question. “You can’t make a $6,000 part and have a 30% scrap rate or even a 10% scrap rate,” explains Smith. “The emphasis is not on throughput, but on the high quality, highly precise manufacturing of very complex parts.” Based on these three inseparable machining requirements — quality, precision and complexity — Smiths Machine set out to reach its greater potential in the machine tool market, not as a production machine shop, but as company focused on complex part manufacturing. Having achieved some early success in this new direction, the way forward for the company soon could be summed up more simply: “The more complex the part, the more competitive we are,” says Smith. To protect and grow this competitive advantage, the company’s leadership knew that their internal processes and technology needed to match up with the unique requirements of the defense and aerospace industries. Major investments in large, complex, five-axis machines would need to be enhanced by equally complex control capabilities. Smith recounts how a decision made previously by the company would now come into play in a profound way.

Manufacturing complex parts for the aerospace and defense industry, demands consistency, high-quality and precision—achieved only with Siemens CNC

The graphically-guided Sinumerik Operate HMI from Siemens has enabled the easy, company-wide adoption of the Sinumerik 840D sl CNC, a control that is otherwise known for its powerfully complex capabilities. Across the company, visually-guided teaching and learning methods have fostered rapid learning and operational proficiency.

A backbone for change

Traditionally a milling and turning company, Smiths Machine first teamed up with DMG and Siemens in the year 2000 to establish their singular machine tool platform. This brought about a synergistic approach to complex milling and turning; an advantage that took on greater significance when the company decided to focus on the defense and aerospace markets later in the decade. “Siemens controls were available on DMG milling and turning machines, and that was a natural fit for us,” Smith recalls. The DMG / Siemens platform has enabled Smiths Machine to establish and maintain a high level of operational proficiency. The central advantage here, Smith says, has been the ability to invest, train and keep his people moving forward based on a stable technology platform. “The technology and the people using it are the backbone of our organization,” Smith asserts. “Even with 25 machines, we can share knowledge between the milling and the turning machines. The common control is a Siemens Sinumerik 840D sl. Our technology purchases

are based on where we want to be in ten years, not on a workforce that is fractionally trained and a platform that can rapidly deteriorate due to a change in market condition or a change in employment condition.” Smith says an example of this singular platform advantage is the control’s similarity across milling and turning operations. “All controls are customized to a certain extent,” Smith acknowledges. “But unlike Siemens, many other control series are individually customized so that the keyboard layout will be different from machine to machine. The Sinumerik 840D sl CNC is consistent. So when you train your operators, you can say, here’s the jog button, here’s the axes button, here’s your alarm button and your offset button. And this level of consistency extends to a graphical interface that really complements how we teach and learn.” Teaching and learning are closely held values within an organization that uses a breadth of visual techniques to foster education, efficient information sharing, and quality control. “We are a very visual company,” Smith says. “We use a lot of colors and we buy a lot of printer toner. Our parts inventory uses color-coded tags and the same is true across our production. We use yellows and blues and reds for consistent instruction. And the Siemens 840D sl control uses the same approach. You are guided visually for such things as axis direction, approach point, final depth and other variables inside a cycle. And this is true from control to control, for milling and turning.” Smith says visually guided information flow is characteristic of today’s complex range of nextgeneration electronic communications, because this speeds understanding and information sharing. Whether for a smart phone or a CNC, graphically guided interfaces enable rapid learning and proficiency, a fact that has been well leveraged by the 840D control interface design. | FEBRUARY 2015 | IMD |

New angles on programming

Gerhard Hetzler, engineering manager at Smiths Machine, has experienced firsthand how the company’s singular platform approach has brought continuity to such manufacturing functions as post, machine simulation, NC code, and control functionality. While the Siemens 840D sl control has evolved in significant ways over the years, Hetzler says these changes have served only to accelerate the performance of the programmers and operators, rather than impede them with new and different procedures. The control platform has also given Smiths Machine the freedom to create custom cycles that can be copied and shared from

The Cycle 800 function within Siemens NX supports the programming of 2-1/2 axis and 3D milling throughout the rotation of all X-Y-Z planes, while maintaining a zero offset. Functions include automatic shifting of zero offset, tool length and radius compensation in rotated planes, compensation of machine geometry, and all machining cycles can be used.


control-to-control, and so machine-to-machine. “I’ll give you an example,” says Hetzler. “To catch occasional entry errors on the tool management side, we created a cycle that checks the length of the tool and within a specific tolerance. So within in a matter of milliseconds, the control compares that value to what was entered in the tool management side, and if the tolerance is exceeded by 2mm, the control immediately stops the machine.” Hetzler says another advantage resulting out of the DMG and Siemens relationship is the continued simplification of complex cutting operations, especially in the area of angular milling heads. “Siemens has come a very long way to improve the cycles and support related to milling heads,” Hetzler says. “Aerospace requires a lot more use of angular milling. Even a five-axis approach can’t do it. You need an angular milling head. I would put this on the top of my

| IMD | FEBRUARY 2015 |

list of the advantages DMG and Siemens have developed. And this relates to another important development, Siemens NX.”

NX as in next

Siemens NX software integrates CAD, CAE and CAM for faster part manufacturing, encompassing all areas of tooling, machining and quality inspection. NX has become integral to Smiths Machine’s CNC platform, because it supports part planning through manufacturing, with the prevention of errors and related costs. “Our ability to develop all of our own postprocessors in house is supported by Siemens NX,” Hetzler explains. “We setup our angular milling heads in NX, so we can post the G-code before we even send it out to the machine.” An early introduction to the power of NX came when the company found that it needed to write code to produce an especially challenging aerospace landing gear. The code took six-weeks to manually program. This was before the company learned that it could do the same task in nine days using NX. “Siemens knows fiveaxis machining and NX is a Siemens product that leverages five-axis,” Hetzler says. “As an example, we can do three-plus-two axes work in NX. There is a cycle for that called Cycle 800. So when NX outputs the NC code, the machine then also understands it. Other control brands will have a cycle that can be made to work, but they are a lot more problematic. We are talking about managing the change of plane, a concept that has been around for a long time and was always problematic to do. Now Cycle 800 in NX does it all for you.” Hetzler says Cycle 800 makes programming the change of plane easier, faster, and with higher accuracy than traditionally calculated methods. “We would normally round off after the third or fourth decimal,” he recalls. “Now the control calculates to nine decimals. When you start talking microns, especially in the aerospace industry, it makes a huge difference. And this difference has been fully implemented by DMG. They have invested a lot of time and money to make sure from their side that Siemens NX and Cycle 800 work 100% of the time.” For more information, please contact: john.meyer@ xor visit

Why Manufacturers are

Over-Paying Electromechanical



When in-house work is outside an OEM’s core competency, too costly or cumbersome, strategic domestic outsourcing can cut cost, improve quality, and even speed delivery


or OEMs making and inventorying electromechanical assemblies, wire harnesses, cable assemblies, or even box-builds in-house, holding too tightly to every aspect of production can be a costly mistake. The intended benefits of doing all the work in-house must be measured against its costs: higher facility overhead, including additional required inventory, manufacturing space, equipment, trained labor, as well as engineering and purchasing resources. Too often, such in-house work is not actually the OEM’s area of expertise, but instead a low margin activity that can consume precious corporate resources to little effect. When the in-house work performed is outside an OEM’s core competency, too costly or cumbersome, strategic domestic outsourcing can cut cost, improve quality, and even speed delivery.


| IMD | FEBRUARY 2015 |

For instance, to focus on its core competency of system design, Evoqua Water Technologies domestically outsourced a junction box electromechanical assembly and wire harness to power its line of industrial water purification modules, according to Rahoul Bhagat, Engineering and Quality Assurance Manager at its Lowell, Mass. facility. The company is a wastewater treatment products, systems and service provider for industrial and municipal customers. “With lower required overhead, inventory, equipment, manufacturing space and labor training compared to doing all the junction box work in-house, we realized about a 20% overall cost savings and gained the ability to go straight from the sub-assembly to the finished product,” says Bhagat. “The streamlined process helped us to meet demand for the product line, which grew over 50% last year.”

Special Focus Overcoming In-House Challenges When an OEM considers which areas are actually core to its business, and which should be outsourced, producing and inventorying every component down to the smallest electrical wire or electromechanical assembly does not always make the list. “We didn’t have the in-house infrastructure to build every component and sub-assembly from scratch,” says Bhagat. “We would’ve had to expand our existing facility or add an offsite location, buy additional production equipment, as well as hire and train specialized labor. Building all that extra in-house infrastructure would have been too costly and inefficient.”

Technical electrical expertise can be a barrier to doing such work in-house. In fact, it has been shown that 44 percent of electronic failures are the result of poor quality control. Electronic failures due to faulty solder joints, improper wire crimps, nicked or cut wire strands, wrong wire gauges, or unauthorized material substitutions can not only impact the final assembly’s quality, reliability, and durability but also cause delay, taint reputation, and even create serious liability. “Quality and durability in the field was critical, says Bhagat. “If the wire were the wrong size, too thin, improperly rated, or had a poorly rated terminal block, it could compromise the junction box assembly, which is unacceptable.” Evoqua Water Technologies domestically outsourced the junction box electromechanical assembly and wire harness to power its line of industrial water purification modules to Wareham, Mass.-based Electro-Prep a turn-key and consignment contract manufacturer of wire harnesses, cable assemblies, electro-mechanical assemblies, and box-builds. In looking for a capable supplier of electrical


| IMD | FEBRUARY 2015 |

components, it is important not only to choose one that maintains industry standard internal quality assurance and auditing programs but also is subject to regular onsite inspections and outside audits. “A key element in ensuring quality is assuring the supplier has their ISO 9001:2008 certification (quality and strong process controls),” says Skip Sullivan, President of Electro-Prep. “Combine this with IPC/ WHMA-A-620 training and certification (industry assembly standards), as well as J-STD-001 training and certification (soldering certification), and you have a good idea that your supplier is a true professional that takes their partnership with you seriously.” Sullivan adds that UL listing in the U.S., CSA certification in Canada, as well as RoHS (and non-RoHS) capabilities are also increasingly vital designations for electrical components. According to Bhagat, “When used as intended, we’ve had no junction box failures on our industrial water purification module since we put it in the field six years ago.” Bhagat credits his supplier for cooperating with Evoqua Water Technologies to produce an improved design. “Electro-Prep offered a number of ideas for improvement that we incorporated into our design. For instance, they helped to secure a din rail in the terminal block, preventing a potential quality issue during assembly. This helped with quality control and manufacturability.” According to Bhagat, his domestic contract manufacturer has a significant delivery advantage over offshore outsourcers. By working with them, he avoids the long shipping lead times of typical overseas outsourcing. He also resolves any issues more quickly, with easier logistics and coordination within the same time zone, language, and culture. For OEMs looking to expedite delivery on outsourced electromechanical assemblies, wire harnesses, cable assemblies, or even box-builds, working with a flexible partner can be important. Sullivan, for instance, suggests that OEMs work with a supplier that offers flexible delivery options such as JIT, rush deliveries, third party drop ships, Kanban (for very short turnaround for ongoing requirements), as well as pullins or push outs (without the hassle of unnecessary, additional charges). “While Electro-Prep typically turns product around for us in four to five weeks, they will rush us product if needed and can supply on a JIT basis,” says Bhagat. “We’re not relying on JIT delivery now, but it could be useful if we have a further surge in demand or want to further expedite our delivery. We’ve never run out of parts they’ve supplied us.” Bhagat says that ultimately, “Domestic outsourcing to a trusted partner helps us stay in control of our process. By focusing on system design and working on modules rather than many individual components, we leverage our core competency and outsource what’s not core.” For more info, call 800-478-4578; email info@electroprep. com; visit; or write to Electro-Prep, Inc. at 14 Kendrick Rd., Unit 3, Wareham, MA 02571.

IHS Identifies Technologies to the over Next Five Years



Billions of Units

ustin, Texas (Jan. 12, 2014)—The Internet of Everything, cloud computing/big data and 3-D printing are the three technologies most likely to transform the world during the next five years, according to IHS Technology (NYSE: IHS). “We know that technology has the capability to change the world: from the Gutenberg printing press to the steam engine to the microchip,” said Ian Weightman, vice president, research & operations, IHS Technology. “But how can we determine which technologies are likely to have the greatest potential to transform the future of the human race? What is the process to distinguish among the innovations that will have limited impact and those that Forecast of  the  Global  Installed  Base  of  Internet  Connectable  Devices  (Billions  of  Units) will be remembered as milestones on the path of progress? 2014 2019 2024 How can you tell the difference between the VHS and Billions of Units 19.7 46.6 85.8 Betamax of tomorrow’s technologies?” “To answer these questions, IHS Forecast  of  the  Global  Installed  Base  of  Internet  Connectable  Devices  (Billions  of  Units)   Technology gathered its leading experts representing the technology supply chain from 100.0   90.0   electronic components to finished products 80.0   70.0   across applications markets ranging from 60.0   50.0   consumer, media, and telecom; to industrial, 40.0   30.0   medical, and power. These experts were 20.0   10.0   asked to nominate and vote for their top 10 0.0   most impactful technologies over the next 2014   2019   2024   five years.” The top three technologies were: 3-D printing in third place; cloud computing/big data at No. 2; and the Internet of Everything coming out on top. © 2014 IHS

Manufacturing moves to next dimension with 3-D printing

Also called additive manufacturing, 3-D printing encourages design innovation by facilitating the creation of new structures and shapes, and allows limitless product complexity without additional production costs. It also greatly speeds up time to market by making the idea-toprototype cycle much shorter. Total revenue for the 3-D printing industry is forecast to grow by nearly 40 percent annually through 2020, when the aggregated market size is expected to exceed $35.0 billion, up from $5.6 billion in 2014.

Cloud computing/big data brings metamorphosis to computing and consumer markets The cloud has become a ubiquitous description for on-demand provisioning of data, storage, computing power and services that are touching nearly every consumer and enterprise across the globe. Together with data analytics and mobile broadband, the cloud and big data are poised to reshape almost every facet of the consumer digital lifestyle experience and dramatically impact enterprise information


technology (IT) strategies, while creating new opportunities and challenges for the various nodes in the entire information, communications and technology (ICT) value chain. The cloud is transformational in the business landscape, changing the way enterprises interact with their suppliers, customers and developers. The big data and data analytics segment is a separate but related transformational technology that harnesses the power of the cloud to analyze data for disparate sources to uncover hidden patterns, enable predictive analysis and achieve huge efficiencies in performance. IHS forecasts that global enterprise IT spending on cloud-based architectures will double to approximately $230 billion in 2017, up from about $115 billion in 2012.

The Internet of Things becomes the Internet of Everything

The world is in the early stages of the Internet of Things (IoT)—a technological evolution that is based on the way that Internet-connected devices can be used to enhance communication, automate complex industrial processes and generate a wealth of information. To provide some context on the magnitude of this evolution, more than 80 billion Internet-connected devices are projected to be in use in 2024, up from less than 20 billion in 2014, as presented in the attached figure. While the IoT concept is still relatively new, it is already transforming into a broader model: the Internet of Everything (IoE). The metamorphosis covers not just the number of devices but envisages a complete departure from the way these devices have used the Internet in the past. Most of the connected devices in place today largely require direct human interaction and are used for the consumption of content and entertainment. The majority of the more than 80 billion future connections will be employed to monitor and control systems, machines and objects—including lights, thermostats, window locks and under-the-hood automotive electronics.

Large-volume workpieces or long sections that are processed by machining from multiple sides often fit poorly or not at all, in standard machines. If, additionally, a high output is required, the construction of a special machine makes economic sense.


or such workpiece scenarios, the usual fixtures are no longer sufficient and extraordinary solutions are necessary. To fix safely and accurately a long profile or bulky workpiece over its entire length without deforming, every application is a challenge for the designer. In the illustrated system, the operations are done simultaneously from two sides. The modular system of SUHNER enables the creation of special machines for various applications of profile machining. The illustrated machine produces precision rail guides and was designed and built by the SUHNER division for special machines. The rapid transfer of the pieces was as important as the precise and rapid loading, unloading and fixturing. The geometry of the fixture device allows simultaneous drilling in steps, on the holes in tool steel. The highpressure internal cooling of the carbide tools allows an excellent drilling performance. The installation consists of two spindles that perform, in less than three minutes, 140 drilling operations, loading and unloading included. The positioning of the spindle and the actual drilling operation takes place in about two seconds. The automatic loading and unloading allows predictable autonomy. Stacks and checking the position and the feeding of bulky work pieces must be adapted individually to the workpieces. Assembly profiles, profiles for windows and doors, plus steel profiles of any kind are often cut for further cost optimization from bar stock. In such projects, additional considerations for the optimal utilization of the raw material and the handling of the remaining piece in the machine cycle are necessary. installation of a unique concept in metal-forming at Eberspaecher North America has improved their production by 20%.

of automotive customers, including Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Pontiac, Buick, Chevrolet and Mercedes-Benz. Founded in 1865 and in the automotive exhaust business since 1931, this German-based company has operated facilities in the USA and Canada since 2000. It currently manufactures in Brighton, Michigan, as well as Tuscaloosa, Alabama and Brampton, Ontario. For their new catalytic converter production line, Eberspaecher N.A. elected to install a laser-welding short-tube production cell. At the heart of this system is a “Twinmaster” roll-forming and laser-welding production system supplied by Weil Engineering North America of Troy, Michigan, which is a subsidiary of Weil Engineering GmbH. of Muellheim, Germany. Currently, Weil Engineering has over 60 tube forming and welding systems in operation in North America, most of them using lasers for welding application. Sixty percent of Weil Engineering’s business activities are in the automotive fields, followed by HVAC, chimney, household appliances and motor shell applications. The “Twinmaster” combines two major functions in one machine: roll-forming and welding. Secondary processes such as blank feeding and post-welding expansion of tubes for perfect roundness are directly linked to the “Twinmaster”, creating one complete production center. The control functions for the entire system are supplied by SIEMENS, using a SINUMERIK 840D for CNC controls and a SIMATIC OP170 operator panel for dialog functions. The HMI is configured by Weil Engineering in “ProTool” for the particular performance requirements of this unique production system.

market trend

By S. Joe Bhatia President and CEO American National Standards Institute


Boost Business T

here is a powerful business tool that can help U.S. industry to fuel business performance and drive growth. This tool can help tap into new and expanding technologies. It can help businesses out-innovate competitors in the global market. And it can help you cut costs and boost your bottom line. I’m talking about standardization (i.e., standards, codes, conformance activities) – and there has never been a more crucial time for American businesses to leverage standards and conformance to gain a powerful advantage in the global marketplace. Standards have the power to turbo-charge innovation and fuel business growth. From design and manufacturing to distribution and marketing, all products and services are affected at some point by standardization – and this is especially true for the metalworking industry. But speaking even more broadly, standards and conformance also impact the strength of the American workforce, inform the direction of innovation, and underpin global commerce.

Put simply, standards boost business.

U.S Department of Commerce – default/files/documents/2012/ january/competes_010511_0.pdf


U.S Department of Commerce –



Consider this: the United States reigned supreme as the innovation leader of the 20th Century. And while we still possess the talent, drive, and resources that fuel continual innovation, translating that promise into business growth has become our greatest challenge. According to a 2012 Department of Commerce report, there is now concern “…that the scientific and technological building blocks critical to our economic leadership have been eroding at a time when many other nations are actively laying strong foundations in these same areas.”1 This is a dangerous shift, and U.S. business and industry simply cannot afford to allow it to continue. We need effective tools to turn our nation’s limitless ingenuity into the innovation and business strength

| IMD | FEBRUARY 2015 |

that will drive U.S. competitiveness for the 21st Century. And strategic standardization is one of those tools.

Dollars and Sense

Standards and conformity assessment play a critical role in removing barriers to trade, enforcing free trade agreements, and expanding foreign markets for U.S. goods and services. They impact more than 80% of global commodity trade2 – in 2013, an estimated 14 trillion dollars. And they are a key to the acceptance and success of U.S. products, personnel, and services overseas. With 95 percent of the world’s consumers outside the U.S., we need to grow our exports to grow our economy. But many American companies and manufacturers are missing the boat. Their leadership is often uninformed or misinformed about the value of standards and conformance as strategic business tools. Few of those who don’t work directly in standardization have a true understanding of its impact and potential power. Together, our community must commit to changing this perception. Ask a CEO whether his or her company really needs to engage in standardization and most would probably tell you it’s not a priority. But that’s only because they don’t truly understand what standards do and how powerfully they can impact the bottom line. It’s an expensive misperception, and one that threatens the future of U.S. competitiveness. The fact is, without globally relevant standards and effective conformity assessment, U.S. businesses would stand to lose market access and be faced with increased and disparate regulatory environments. And without effective utilization of standards and conformance within their own operations, U.S. companies and organizations give up an invaluable opportunity to influence future product lines and market requirements around the world. These are advantages our corporate leaders

market trend

cannot afford to be without, especially in a sector as competitive as yours. We need to help C-suite executives and senior public policy officials understand that standards and conformance activities are powerful business tools at their disposal. They can help individual businesses out-innovate competitors in the global market and tap into new and expanding technologies, and help U.S. government and industry to fuel overall business growth. Executives must understand that if they don’t position their organization to take a seat at the table and be part of the standardization process, they will be letting their competitors dictate the way they do business.

don’t truly understand what standards “do[managers] and how powerfully they can impact the bottom line. It’s an expensive misperception, and one that threatens the future of U.S. competitiveness.

Get Involved

To lead that effort, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has worked in partnership with 30 other organizations to launch the Standards Boost Business (SBB) awareness campaign. SBB aims to inform and educate C-suite executives and senior public policy officials about the ways in which standards and conformance activities can boost business performance and innovation, lower costs, and help U.S. industry to be more competitive in the global marketplace. SBB is also a call to action for corporate America to devote more resources – time, money, and manpower – to standardization activities. Through case studies and video testimonials, the website provides real-world demonstrations of how U.S. businesses are leveraging standards to their advantage. Executives at firms like Eaton Corporation, Hubbell Incorporated, and the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) offer first-hand accounts of how they streamline processes, trim costs, and gain market access with the help of standardization. Both by using standards and conformity assessment in their day-to-day operations, and by actively participating in the development of the documents that shape their industry and govern their markets, business leaders are gaining a competitive advantage over their competitors – both foreign and domestic. Take Deere & Company, for example. They produce large equipment for consumers the world over – and they are very actively engaged in standardization, both here in the U.S. and internationally. Here’s what a Deere executive had to say:


“While our products feature unique components that differentiate us from our competitors, we also rely on enabling components like fittings and fasteners that can be produced to standards and be available ‘off the shelf.’ Contributing our knowledge to develop these standards made

| IMD | FEBRUARY 2015 |

good sense. The more standardized components we can use to deliver reliable functionality, the less we, and our customers, have to pay.” To help executives reap the rewards of standardization, here are four important steps they can take: 1) Participate in standards development activities, both domestic and international. Active participation enables a company to exert influence on technical content and align its products and services with changing market demand. It provides insiders’ knowledge and early access to information on emerging issues, and helps reduce redundancy, minimize errors, and shorten time to market. 2) Rely on standards to design your products and services, and turn to recognized conformity assessment systems to test, inspect, certify, and accredit them. Demonstrating compliance to standards helps a company’s products, services, and personnel to cross borders. Standards also make cross-border interoperability possible, ensuring that products manufactured in one country can be sold and used in another. 3) Treat standardization as a strategic business tool. Standards and conformance are a marathon, not a sprint. As critical business tools, standards and conformance should be managed right alongside an organization’s quality, safety, and environmental policies. They are just as important to the long-term health of a business. 4) Make a resource commitment – of time, money, and manpower - to the U.S. standardization system. In difficult economic times, many companies feel the need to downsize or even eliminate their participation in standards development. But the resources needed to re-start the process later on can be much more expensive and difficult than maintaining a well-functioning system for the long run. As coordinator of the U.S. standardization system, ANSI is proud of this highly successful, community-wide effort; but we need even more support to keep the momentum going. I urge you to visit the website, www., and take advantage of the great resources available. And I hope you will click on our partnership page, and join the growing list of organizations that are already involved. We truly need your engagement. At a time when the public and private sectors are looking to foster economic growth and create good jobs for the future, it is more important than ever that U.S. companies understand the value of standards and conformance. With a foundation based on responsiveness and collaboration, our nation’s standardization system can help to ensure America’s strength in the innovation age while driving business growth and advancing U.S. competitiveness on the global stage.
