Reshoring is a process sweeping the machining industry in America, as the return of jobs that had been offshored, or sent overseas, is occurring at a higher rate due to the associated costs with shipping and logistics, the lower quality of foreign manufacturing and a global rise in labor costs. Using collets, retention knobs, end mill holders and tool holders allow American manufacturing professionals to produce quality products sold on the open market. Specialized training is required for the use of ER collets and Cnc tool holders. CNC machines offer manufacturers a high degree of productivity and flexibility.
Most of the tools that get used for boring, grinding, cutting, shearing and otherwise machining metal and rigid materials are dangerous tools. Any machining professional can tell you that poor training leads to disastrous results. You can teach a child to use a hand tool. It is not safe to teach a child how to use a power tool. Machining tools take it one step farther, as they have several moving parts that are assembled in a specific manner to reduce the risk of errors. CNC tool holders make it easy to control the transfer of power in hydraulic tools, which have several spinning parts and harness the spending power, or torque. Learn more about how to safely manage machining tools and CNC tool holders by going through a certification program that highlights the risks associated with these tools and addresses those risks.
