Greetings!

It's human nature to like the idea of paying less for something, so it's not a surprise that customers often ask for a discount. Mfrtech.com offers ideas on ways to handle these requests while keeping both customer relationships and your bottom-line in mind.

 

The automotive sector has always had an impact on the manufacturing industry as a whole. So, now that we're already into the second quarter of 2012, how is automotive looking? The Center for Automotive Research turns the brights on the automotive industry. 

 

Although moldmakers are not typically running high part volumes in production environments, Automation is a way for shops to do more with less. But, how do moldmakers get into automation? 

 

Today's metalformers face the challenge of producing higher quality products at a faster rate. The challenge is even greater when working with old hydraulic presses. The demand to keep up is forcing many to consider rebuilding or retrofitting old presses.
