Greetings!
Massive layoffs, plant closings, and the continuing threat of overseas competition have created a lasting erosion in the public's perception of the North American manufacturing industry. This negative perception is now creating a secondary long-term effect that is less publicly noticed - discouraging youth from entering a manufacturing career. However, the shortage of highly skilled employees is already a problem being felt by some manufacturers. According to experts' predictions, the problem will continue growing. Telling the mainstream about manufacturing is an important stride we should all partake in to ensure a vibrant future for our manufacturing sector.
Mazak Corp. Canada is doing its part by participating and contributing annually in the Canadian Skills Competition. The Canadian Skills Competition showcases and raises awareness for skilled trades in Canada. Events like this not only help produce talented professionals, but also pave the way for quality products we can all enjoy for years to come.
A company committed to superior quality and customer satisfaction is A-1 Tool Company (Melrose Park, IL). Focusing on delivering value to customers, taking an in-depth look at the customer's processes, and challenging the traditional approaches present an opportunity for profitability for both the Mold Maker and the customer.
For Die Makers, carefully evaluating processes such as die changes can help pinpoint bottlenecks and problem areas. Developing a successful quick- changeover process can help streamline shop floor workflows and deliver significant savings in time and money.

Manufacturing & Tooling Update Cimatron Newsletter June, 2010
Greetings!
The road to economic recovery is not always smooth or short. However, economists continue to report that we are still on the recovery path. The evidence from the manufacturing front is that for die makers, business is picking up and toolrooms are buzzing with activity.
Many companies had to make very tough decisions during the down times some involving significant changes to their business operations.
For example, injection molder Polymer Conversions and its customer, SensGard LLC, have embraced a refreshing change by developing a special partnership in an effort to bring an exciting new technology to market.
And, if your business hasnt experienced change, it likely will during these times of improvement. How you manage the change can notably impact how effective these changes are going to be.
