We stopped over to check on the tools during the show and spend some time with Tyler Bonde who tooled up the entire job.
Tyler has been following us on Instagram for a while and he reached out to us to help show off the capabilities on the Matsuura MX850 5 axis VMC during the IMTS 2016 show. Give him a follow @tcb1228 on Instagram!
In the video, Tyler explains how he is using the Diamondback rougher that not only cuts down his cycle time, when compared to insert style end mills, but also how the tools generate a manageable chip size that doesn't clog op his chip augers. We're planning on showing off the finished part at the PRI Trade Show (Performance Racing Industry) in December 2016.

Harry Moser from the Reshoring Initiative stopped by our IMTS 2016 booth to talk about the progress of reshoring manufacturing to North American shores.
Reshoring is the practice of bringing manufacturing and services back to the U.S. from overseas. It’s a fast and efficient way to strengthen the U.S. economy because it helps balance the trade and budget deficits, reduces unemployment by creating good, well-paying manufacturing jobs, and fosters a skilled workforce. Reshoring also benefits manufacturing companies by reducing the total cost of their products, improving balance sheets, and making product innovations more effective.
The Reshoring Initiative is focused on helping companies shift collective thinking from “offshoring is cheaper” to “local reduces the total cost of ownership.”
Harry explained how small contract manufacturing shops can use his Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Calculator, for free, to convince their customers to keep the existing machining on our shores. He suggested asking your customers:
"Is there anything you are thinking about moving off shore, or better yet, is there anything you are getting from off-shore where you are having delivery issues, quality issues, intellectual property issues, travel, too much late night telephone calls, anything that is causing you pain,... and how can we take away the pain?"
We also talked about how small machine shops can innovate more as more machining business reshores. At Destiny Tool we believe that reshoring stimulates even more new innovation and, candidly, helps us innovate new products and solutions because of our customers feedback about machining.
Here's the video below. We hope you find it helpful in growing your business.
Harry Moser & The Reshoring Initiative
Harry Moser founded the Reshoring Initiative in 2010 to bring manufacturing jobs back to the U.S. Prior to the starting the Initiative, he held leadership positions at GF Machining Solutions, formerly known as GF AgieCharmilles, where he began in 1985 as the company’s president and retired in 2010 as Chairman Emeritus.
Harry's reshoring efforts have been widely recognized. In 2010, he was inducted into the Industry Week Manufacturing Hall of Fame and was named Quality Magazine’s Quality Professional of the year in 2012.
Harry has actively participated in President Obama’s Insourcing Forum at the White House in January 2012. He also won The Economist debate in January 2013 on outsourcing and offshoring, and received the Manufacturing Leadership Council’s Industry Advocacy Award in 2014.

We've been reposting and sharing both Instagram postings and YouTube videos of your applications for some time and for IMTS 2016 we want to take it one step farther. For the 2016 IMTS show we would like to showcase the parts that you have made with our tools.
From now until August 31, we will be accepting applications from shops to be part of our display at IMTS 2016. We will feature a part made with our tools as well as an informational table tent that would include your shop's logo, City, State and/or Country as well as your website address so other attendees can take a look at your capabilities. We would also need some specific cutting data as to which tools were used and how.
In the meantime, please be sure to use the #DestinyTool hashtag as well as the #IwannaBeOnIMTStv hashtag when posting our products. The folks at IMTS 2016 have a competition going on to see where the most interesting products are located at the show and then do an interview in the booths that qualify. This could be a great opportunity for us to talk about YOUR company and part applications!
