While machining technology is always advancing, 2020 accelerated some key innovations. In the machining industry, many companies had to pivot and produce necessary supplies quickly, or they were met with a decreased demand for products and were forced to reduce jobs. Even in the best of times, it's getting more difficult to find manufacturing workers, and companies are turning to automation. Using robotics to increase productivity is one of several trends and changes that are likely here to stay.

Over the years, satellite communication systems—also known as satcom systems—have become increasingly important to our day-to-day lives. Since they allow people to communicate through voice and video reliably even with variable information rates and from the most difficult-to-reach areas, the demand for them has grown among consumers, businesses, and military agencies.

Computer Numerical Control (CNC) technology has improved the capabilities of many machine shops and manufacturing operations. It's a competitive industry and each company brings its own strengths to the table—but not all contract CNC manufacturers are created equal. It’s important to consider multiple options and select a CNC manufacturer that can handle your project, your budget, and any other unique needs you may have.

CNC vertical milling uses automated processes to control specialized rotary cutting tools that remove material from a workpiece’s surface. Manufacturers use CNC vertical milling to both form a workpiece and to create detailing on its surface. It’s most often used to cut small holes and notches and to create three-dimensional products. These machines’ vertical spindles also make them great for drilling and plunging cuts.

Aluminum once made up the bulk of the material used in aerospace applications. Aluminum accounts for as little as 20% of the materials used in a typical jet today, however. Composite materials, carbon-reinforced polymers, and honeycomb materials are increasingly seeing usage across the aerospace industry because of the demand for lighter-weight aircraft.
