Advanced, smart techniques and technologies are finding their way into every nook and cranny of manufacturing, even tooling and workholding. This presentation looks at whether applying—in whole or in part—these techniques and technologies to what had long been considered the immutable bedrock of metalworking delivers slight, substantial, or no benefit in terms of speed, accuracy, and the all-important bottom line of shops both big and small.
