Current Issue

April 2020

As the nation continues to adjust to the “new normal,” Techgen Media continues to publish informative articles that aim to help fabricators emerge stronger than ever before. This month’s issue, which is now live, features a special report that lays out data-driven strategies to avoid supply chain disruptions during times of global uncertainty.

The issue also focuses on how the evolution of software continues to offer advantages to manufacturers. One article discusses the idea of recurring downtime and how to correct it through machine monitoring software. Another article features an advanced manufacturing execution system (MES) that provides visibility solutions to create sweeping, company-wide improvements.

To round things out, our report on high-powered waterjet technology shows how a 90,000-psi pump made big production differences and led to money savings for a Michigan-based manufacturer.

Even though the pandemic has forced society to socially separate, we’re also coming together in new and creative ways. In that spirit, we continue to urge our readers to reach out to us and let us know what topics you want to see in the pages of FAB Shop Magazine Direct.
