Current Issue

September 2019

The team at FAB Shop Magazine is happy to announce that the September issue is here. In the spirit of the changing season, the editors delivered helpful information about changes to come – changes in the overall industry as well as changes on individual shop floors. The cover article, for example, showcases a big change in additive manufacturing. While smaller parts have historically been the sweet spot for 3-D printing, a new machine is opening the doors to larger part production.

Similarly, the issue also highlights new welding techniques and equipment that will be of interest to those in the oil and gas industry. There’s also an article that covers the positive changes a shop can experience when bringing in a new piece of plasma equipment. To round things out, there’s an article with tips and advice for keeping older equipment functioning like new.
