Making Chips Podcast for Manufacturing Leaders

MakingChips is hosted by a set of multi-generational manufacturing leaders who are on the factory floor everyday, living their lives in the world of manufacturing—they know first hand that manufacturing can be challenging. Founders Jim Carr and Jason Zenger released their first podcast in late December 2014—releasing over 300 episodes to-date, reaching more than 650,000 downloads—all while striving to deliver on their mission, to “equip and inspire the metalworking nation.” In 2019, Nick Goellner, another multi-generational manufacturing leader, joined the MakingChips hosts, bringing a third generation of manufacturing leaders to the table. Join the hosts as they work through industry challenges with leaders such as Titan Gilroy (Titans of CNC), John Saunders (NYC CNC), Mark Terryberry (Haas Automation) and more.

On this episode of MakingChips, we are very pleased to welcome Doug Woods, President of AMT–the organization behind IMTS 2016. AMT (The Association For Manufacturing Technology) supports and promotes the U.S. manufacturing technology industry. The association provides U.S. builders of manufacturing systems with the latest information on technical developments, trade and marketing opportunities, and economic issues.

Doug speaks with us about the ever-changing face of manufacturing, and how it continues to elevate IMTS into an industry success story. Doug also shares some innovations in this year’s conference, including a collaboration with Hannover Fairs. Lastly, we discuss MT Connect, an open-soure, royalty-free manufacturing communications protocol that helps to provide more efficient operations, improve production optimization, and increase productivity.
