I can’t tell you yet, but I can drop some clues…

This year’s top Leadtime Leader uses automation to better compete in the markets it serves, as you can see by the image above. This company isn’t large, but it operates “big.” From advanced quoting through engineering, its team works using a lean mindset and optimized systems that help get jobs into the schedule and onto the shop floor more quickly. Automation, inspection and measurement, and Moldflow/DFM capabilities are among the value-added services this Leadtime Leader offers, and its team culture has adopted five fundamentals for success: Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control. That’s all for now…

  • Eliminating Seams

    A zero-parting-line process requires collaboration among the toolmaker, its texturization provider and the OEM.

  • Conversational CNC Helps Moldmaker Bridge Skills Gap

    What can a company do when it has a healthy flow of work running through its facility but a lack of skilled workers to complete it all in an efficient, cost-effective manner? This moldmaker found the solution in two Hurco VMX 42i CNC mills with conversational programming capability.
