While product demand is increasing, specialized employees are hard to find. Meanwhile, increasing production efficiency and using less labor is becoming more important every day. In the first half of this class, we will discuss how using multitasking machines can help you increase your throughput, reduce waste, and improve efficiency on your manufacturing floor. Since "multi-tasking” means different things to different people, we will help you navigate the world of turn/mill, turnmill, mill/turn, millturn, and Swiss lathes. Using customer-driven experience and results, we will provide real-world examples comparing traditional machining methods to innovative multitasking techniques. In the second half of the class, Matthew Yates and Josh Postell from Rivian will present how they use Autodesk Fusion 360 software to program their computer numerical control (CNC) machines, and how the latest and upcoming software improvements make them more productive.
