With increasing manufacturing costs and decreasing profit margins, it is extremely important for machine tool users to choose the right type of tooling that will produce accurate parts at lower costs. Application of right tooling can boost throughput and improve the quality of finished parts drastically and also reduce machining cost by as much as 20%.
