New Opportunities
A new year offers new opportunities. Each issue we strive to provide you with the news and information that will lead to new opportunities for your company. The business climate is challenging enough, the products that we feature in this issue will improve your productivity and profitability, giving you a competitive edge.

To help your company develop new opportunities this year, this issue features CNC routers, tooling, and composite materials that will open doors, and new markets for your business. These suppliers are ready to help you succeed in 2023 and beyond.

We kick-off with a CNC Routers & Tooling spotlight. Modern 3- and 5-axis machines are easier to operate, and offer a wide variety of options to suit your customer’s requirements. Then add one of the tooling options in this spotlight to achieve the best finish off your new, or existing CNC.

Next, we look at what’s new in Composites. They are well suited for applications in oil and gas, semiconductor, and electronics as well as medical, aerospace, analytic instrumentation, and energy. Composite plastics come in many formulations and configurations. They offer superior strength to weight ratios, a low coefficient of thermal expansion and moisture resistant. From thermoset plastics which are unique composites of cross-linked resins to continuous fibre-reinforced thermoplastic plates and multilayer hybrids, opportunities are everywhere for these unique materials.

Finally, in Safety Solutions Jack Podojil addresses “Machine Guarding.” Machinery related injuries are some of the worst in the industry today. Jack discusses what, where, and why guards are needed at multiple points of your machinery. You can avoid exposing your workers to potential injuries, and even death, by following his recommendations. And if your company needs assistance with a safety related matter, Jack would be happy to help. He is available for an initial consultation and has nearly 50 years in industrial safety. Email him at today!

We look forward to bringing you the news and new products that will lead your company to new opportunities this year. To find additional resources search our website. You can also contact our advertisers or manage your subscription.

Enjoy the issue,

David Whelan
