Expert's company is internationally recognized for its work in developing and distributing data for machining of a wide variety of materials. It's the premier source for machining data (specific operating conditions), process engineering, machinability testing, and machine tool and cutting tool information.

Technical inquiries are taken by Expert. Expert is a Project Engineer for his firm's laboratory and field testing programs.

Expert's company provides information on effectiveness of free machining additives, cutting fluids and cutting tools is also available. Test data generated by expert shows the effects of machining parameters on tool life, tool wear, surface finish, surface integrity, cutter breakage, cutting forces, power requirements, and tool deflection or chatter. Machining parameters commonly tested include cutting speed, feed rate, depth of cut and the effects on surface finish and grinding ratios. The company's Machinability Data Center functions as a national information analysis center that collects, evaluates and disseminates machinability data. Services include seminars, training programs, publications (including the Machining Data Handbook known as the "Machining Bible"). Machinability testing services are also available on a contract basis. Contract engineering services are also available (appropriate processes can be suggested based on part drawings taken into account existing customer constraints).

The staff at his company has spent nearly 20 years working with machining data and information; specifically, tool materials, coolants, speeds, and feeds. The staff is expert in various operations and can assist in problem solving and technology transfer. His company offers expertise in machine-related subject areas such as computer-aided manufacturing, pollution prevention and waste minimization, and process and operations planning. The company's systems activity concentrates on bringing test data from the Machinability Laboratory and experienced data from the Machinability Data Center to the shop floor for practical applications via interactive computing programs.

The staff of expert's company has worked with unconventional machining processes since 1984 and has followed developments and applications. Individuals on the staff have lectured on this topic since 1988 and have strong connections to leading experts in particular process technologies.

Their primary emphasis in rapid prototyping has been on surveying emerging processes and related technologies for creating models by building successive thin layers.

Expert has information on machining studies for standard production operations and for special manufacturing situations. Extensive data exists for turning, milling, drilling, reaming, tapping, gear manufacturing, sawing, and grinding operations.

Expert may consult nationally and internationally, and is also local to the following cities: Indianapolis, Indiana - Muncie, Indiana - Anderson, Indiana - Columbus, Ohio - Cincinnati, Ohio - Dayton, Ohio - Springfield, Ohio - Hamilton, Ohio - Lexington, Kentucky - Louisville, Kentucky
