car racing is the worlds most prestigious of car racing events. Cars race around
the track at speeds close to 200 miles per hour.
And as the crew
members of these finely tuned machines have told us, having reliable back-up and
engineering support is the difference between winning and losing. The engineering
support they are talking about is in the precision with which the engine parts
Real specialist in the machining industry come few
and far between. And as the industry has been plagued with a shortage of skilled
machinists, being a leader in this industry is a challenge of foresight and tenacity.
And as today√s manufacturers restructure and retool for a new era of fierce
competition, the participants in this emerging global marketplace will survive
only on their ability to respond to market shifts and changing customer demands.
Mapal√s precisioned engineering capability has positioned it as a company
in particularly high demand by those who rely on this type of engineering precision.
Industries like Auto Racing, Automotive and Aircraft Manufacturing, and the Space
But maintaining quality while remaining cost effective
is a big problem for the leaders of this industry. To sustain high degrees of
productivity has largely been difficult, but a complex technology known as High
Speed/High Velocity Machining is breaking new ground in yielding the high precision
to favorable cost to performance ratio so heavily sought after.
Revolution at the beginning of the last century was just as breathtaking as what
is happening in industrial manufacturing today. The question is whether continued
innovation can sustain the momentum of manufacturing progress and whether manufacturing
companies have the capabilities and business acumen to adopt new strategies, systems
As speed and accessibility of information has improved
our global reach and closeness, it has also dramatically altered our way of life.
And as much as environmental, energy and health issues have begun to transform
the way we manufacture, the growing demand from customers are rewriting the strategies
and thinking of the manufacturing sector.
Whatever the field of specialty,
the manufacturers of today will need to measure up to the fundamental requirements
of their industry and at least keep pace the new innovations along the way. No
doubt there will be great opportunities in the decades ahead. It seems from our
research that the Manufacturing industry has not yet reached the point of diminishing
returns. On the contrary, the technical and technological challenges ahead are
the most promising opportunities for the manufacturing world.
