Metal Shrinker + Stretcher Combo
switches operations without having to change tooling
Commonly used in autobody work, shrinker/stretchers
make curves in sheet metal by compressing/shrinking
or expanding/stretching your workpiece. With one dedicated shrinker and one dedicated stretcher, users can
mount both tools to a workbench and switch between
operations without having to change out dies.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it
again: Innovation is the lifeblood of
NED. It is why we exist and it’s why
we’ve continued to exist for over
Over the years, NED has become the showcase for the
outcome of this work—from the incremental innovations
that move us a step ahead to the disruptive breakthroughs
that vault the industry miles forward, our job is to capture
and publish each piece of this momentum so you can put
them to work.
This perspective on the industry is critical, particularly
now. News today is full of dire predictions—the skills gap
will widen, plants will shutter, manufacturing will decline.
And, lately, that these global flu fears will strike their heaviest blow to manufacturing and the international supply
chains that holds it together.
All of these are valid concerns, all of them real threats to
the industry and in need of real solutions. But I’m not worried.
If nothing else, seeing this magazine come to life every
month and seeing all of these new products and implementations and R&D highlights go online every day has taught
me the firm resilience of this industry. For every problem
we face, there are gangs of experts across the world competing to find a solution. It is a one-way march that has
never let up—manufacturing will always succeed because
manufacturers always innovate.
It’s not always a smooth ride, sure, but the direction is
In this sense, I am particularly proud to publish this
issue today. In a world of uncertainty and worry, we’ve
collected a massive book here, telling the story of 14
powerful manufacturing leaders whose certainty and innovative progress provide a clear light to lead us through.
And around these, we’ve highlighted 108 new products
that showcase progress on everything from bolts and spill
containment to mobile robots and Io T wizardry.
It’s the kind of issue that helps me sleep better at
night with faith restored that innovation, above all else,
will carry us through. I hope it provides the same comfort
Stay healthy out there. Travis Hessman

Autonomous Sensors Do it All
combine a sensor and data processor into one unit
Combining contactless, high-resolution vibration sensor technology with built-in data processing and wireless communications, Autonomous Sensors offer low-cost and fast deployment of a wide range of monitoring
applications for IIo T environments, providing manufacturers with crucial operational and technical insights.
The laser sensors measure 3D, motion, and vibrations of any surface to enable industrial manufacturers to monitor the real-time health and performance
of engines, turbines, pumps, and more. Their compact
and contactless form enables the sensors to work on
hot, wet, and moving surfaces, and they even continue to analyze mechanical health through glass.
The sensors also include built-in real-time data processing and decentralized data logic powered by Uco-ntrol’s uPC platform, offering a standalone solution
for edge processing and data analytics. The system
can connect to a computer in the manufacturer’s production line or to an internal or external cloud.
