Top 10 Metal Working Solution Providers - 2019

Latest technologies have been changing the face of metal working processes and helping the manufacturing industry develop innovative products. However, in the ever-changing world, staying up-to-date with the latest metal working industry trends becomes a challenge due to the continuous upgradation of processes involved in the production. Manufacturing products is not merely a question of deploying a bunch of machines. It rather involves identifying needs and setting specific goals to obtain quality outputs. Instead, organizations implement advanced and reliable products without evaluating the benefits of the features they offer. Consequently, even with cutting-edge tools at their disposal, they continue to produce mediocre products. With the constant evolution of metal working trends, companies should stay abreast of the market changes and strive for producing breakthrough products.

Organizations today need to gain a better understanding of machine tools and improve their production process for maximizing their capabilities. As such, they are embracing automation as it can prove crucial for optimizing metal working. Advanced technology such as 3D printer continues to play a significant role in the fourth industrial revolution, and consequently, manufacturing companies are leveraging it for business growth. 3D printers have proliferated additive manufacturing, where it joins materials layer upon layer to make objects, as opposed to subtractive manufacturing methodologies. Additive manufacturing can significantly reduce material waste and production steps along with optimizing resource utilization. Advancement of additive manufacturing will further decentralize production, thereby, helping organizations to produce objects close to the market for cost saving. Localizing the manufacturing also optimizes the management of the supply chain as firms can distribute the raw materials to the nearest production facility. In addition, additive manufacturing is also assisting firms in producing customized products and catering the demand for tailored commodities.

Vendors are leveraging various technologies and developing multiple data-driven solutions to revamp processes for producing faster, better, and smarter than ever before. Imagine how analyzing big data for forecasting lathe malfunctioning can save organizations from downtime and help them to reduce operational and maintenance cost. Big data analytics has been assisting firms in transforming and making production more efficient by predicting breakdowns of equipment to carry out preventive maintenance and avoid production loss hours. In addition, usage of technologies like augmented reality in the manufacturing and metal working sector is transforming the operating procedures through visualization of installation and assembly processes before the actual execution. This allows engineers to plan the commissioning of equipment for rendering metal working tasks.

Considering these facts, Manufacturing Technology Insights has curated a list of the top ten metal working solution providers. A distinguished panel of CEOs, CFOs, industry analysts, and the Manufacturing Technology Insights’ editorial team have closely scrutinized and nominated the best-in-class vendors in the metal working space. These vendors are domain experts who are innovating the industrial production processes with new technologies, a fresh perspective, and newfound energy while giving clients the flexibility they need.
