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 are machined.
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 Industry.
And 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
The Industrial 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 and processes.
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
