It was 1751 and things are about to really change. The video is almost 15 minutes in length but it is quite interesting and sheds a very accurate light on how far we've come since then from a historical and practical point of view.
Kyocera Corporation (President: Hideo Tanimoto) announced today that it has developed a new ultra-durable coating technology and base material for indexable industrial cutting tool inserts to improve steel machining.
Feb 10, 2018 - Haas Automation Inc. has reported that its annual sales in 2017 exceeded 13,500 units for the first time in company history—an increase of nearly 30 percent over 2016.
“It was an incredible year,” said Scott Gasich, vice president of sales and marketing. “Haas Automation performed strongly on all continents, with substantial growth in all markets – especially international markets, which accounted for 55 percent of our sales.

Nov 24, 2017 - If you work with machine tools such as turning centers, 5-axis CNC mills, or grinding machines, you probably have some preconceptions about the quality of different machine tool manufacturers. Who makes a more accurate machine: Germany or Japan? Across the globe, whether it’s automobiles, electronics or industrial machine tools, some nations have a reputation for quality, precision and durability. Of course, generalizations aren’t always correct. A quick look around your home or office will inevitably turn up products stamped with “MADE IN TAIWAN.” But this doesn’t mean smallwares, cheap electronics and toys are all Taiwan is capable of manufacturing. When ENGINEERING.com made a visit to several major machine tool manufacturers headquartered in Taichung, Taiwan, what we found was careful engineering and precision manufacturing of machine tools.
For example, we spoke to YCM about their process for stress-relieving their castings over the course of several months to ensure better machine accuracy. Yet for all the high-caliber machine tool manufacturing happening in Taiwan, is anyone taking notice?About Goodway Machine Corporation
Goodway Machine Corporation manufactures multiaxis vertical and horizontal turning centers as well as specialty equipment for Swiss turning, wheel turning, tapping and cylindrical grinding. The firm builds equipment in Taiwan but is expanding its manufacturing in both Taiwan and the People’s Republic of China.
The company’s component assembly facility is over 200,000 sqft. of production space located in Taichung, Taiwan, which also hosts a Goodway turning center plant of 208,000 sqft.
In Wujiang, Jiang-Su Province on the mainland, Goodway operates a 720,000 sqft turning center plant and is currently building a new facility in Chiayi Taiwan that will include over million square feet of production space. All of Goodway’s production operates under ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certification.

EMO Hannover 2017 theme of “Connecting Systems for Intelligent Production” allowed exhibitors to showcase their smart solutions
The EMO Hannover 2017 theme of “Connecting Systems for Intelligent Production” lived up to expectations from the many exhibitors who were only too willing to show you how they have embraced the concept by implementing Industry 4.0 or the Internet of Things (IoT) in their products or future plans.
Many were demonstrating connectivity solutions, data analysis applications and other innovative services, each trying to outdo the other with their novel idea giving a reflection of how they have interpreted the theme and the concept. However, throughout the exhibition the emphasis was on systems capable of interconnecting multiple partners, cloud-based machine monitoring solutions, simulation software, augmented reality for machine maintenance, block chain technology for secure data transfer, new business models and much more.
Prior to the show beginning, EMO’s organisers said they were confident that the show would generate impetus for implementing Industry 4.0 or the Internet of Things (IoT) concepts.
“In the machine tool sector we have long since implemented digitalisation,” explains EMO’s General Commissioner and VDMA President, Carl Martin Welcker.
“Digital images, for example, for simulations have likewise been possible for quite a long time now. Under the keyword of Industry 4.0, the task now is to network the entire production operation, and indeed the complete added-value chain.”
He also refers to Industry 4.0 as a mindset: encouraging staff to come up with ideas on how they can put Industry 4.0 into shop-floor practice.
“In a consistently networked manufacturing line, flexible production is possible with optimised sequences, so that even rush orders in small batch sizes can be handled. Complete networking of the entire production line with real-time communication and control will create maximised added value for companies when it implements horizontal communication from receipt of the order all the way through to dispatch. Within the added-value chain, moreover, it’s important to network not only the component suppliers, but also the logistical partners and the customers involved, so as to achieve maximised productivity, flexibility and efficiency. If all this succeeds, this signifies a quantum leap forwards in terms of productivity, and will catapult those who can do it to the leading edge of international competition,” is the succinct verdict of Carl Martin Welcker.
Individual responsesAt EMO, control developers and manufacturers, software companies, tooling companies and machine tool builders demonstrated their individual responses to Industry 4.0 requirements.
“The keynote theme of this year’s EMO Hannover gave us the ideal backdrop against which to present market-ready products for digital manufacturing,” said Christian Thönes, chairman of the executive board of DMG Mori AG, Bielefeld, Germany.
