Historically, direct labor was a large component of the cost to manufacture a part driving manufacturers to seek low-cost labor locations to make their products. Today’s global manufacturer is employing more automation and manufacturing “intelligence,” driving a trend to make the product where it is consumed with less emphasis on labor cost. The ability to recognize new methods and to absorb new technologies is the driving factor of success. Iscar is a leading cutting tool company that brings new ideas to help today’s manufacturers maximize their investment in new machine tool technologies. Iscar also collaborates with other industry leaders to ensure good information exchange to support a total solution & education opportunities.
