Pipeline On Wheels: Trains Are Winning Big Off U.S. Oil

Pipeline On Wheels: Trains Are Winning Big Off U.S. Oil | Changing the way industry does business | Scoop.it
The railroad industry is eager to be the go-to oil shipper, but some worry it's moving too fast.

Many hoping to stop environmental degradation of Canada's Tar Sands and the Dakotas "Kuwait on the Prairie" have opposed the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.  It's been decades since crude oil has been shipped by rail in the United States but fracking technologies have opened up areas without oil pipelines to become major producers.  As demonstrated in this NPR podcast, the railroad industry has seized on this vacuum and since 2009 has been supplying the oil industry the means to get their product to the market.

Tony Aguilar's curator insight, December 8, 2013 12:46 AM

The idea of using trains instead of oil pipelines in the North Dakota regions is smart, over the idea of the time and energy it takes to transport oil through pipes. Big industry always causes parts of the enviornment to suffer but the lesser of the evils must be chosen. In the area of shipping oil on trains it is the sandy prarie like areas that can suffer physically. With oil business fracking has also been a big issue were rocks deep beneath the ground are broken up to release oil up to the surface. Yes this brings companies lots of money, but causes harm to homes, leaking oil, causing explosions and even earthquakes. This can be tricky especially when these kinds of companies are supported by the federal government

Connie Anderson's curator insight, December 8, 2013 12:01 PM

"Forward on climate?" This news is backwards and at least 40,000 people who attended "Forward on Climate" rallies throughout our nation in February 2013 will continue to question, protest peacefully, and convince others that we MUST reduce our dependence on oil no matter how it is transported!

Five CNC Myths and Misconceptions : Modern Machine Shop

Five CNC Myths and Misconceptions : Modern Machine Shop | Changing the way industry does business | Scoop.it
Managers that wind up working in companies that use CNCs often start their careers in other areas. While this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, managers with limited shop experience can’t always understand what’s actually going on in the shop.

ManuMan's insight:

There is so much truth in this article. Far to often I have sat across the table from managers and supervisors that have said these very same things. It is only now, with the backing of America's finest solutions based providers and one of the world leaders in machining platforms, I can now get into the shops and work with the leaders of the industry to dispell many of these misconceptions and encourage better business practices.

In-house Manufacturing Brings Growth
ManuMan's insight:

So often we hear that companies can't afford the price of premium products. But when the value is greater then the price, it becomes a clear choice. No one would ever pay the equal price and value of any goods or services. Business 101 says to buy low and sell high. And when the value is greater than price, everyone wins!

Service Mailing 2012

Service Mailing 2012 | Changing the way industry does business | Scoop.it
ManuMan's insight:

Several years ago when American manufacturing began to go overseas, many experts predicted that it would be the service industry that would rise to the top in the American economy. Well they were partially correct. But rather than the high paying, high quality service they predicted, the United States saw a few corporations developed. But what they brought was standard services, lower paid workers, and a top down approach. They then quickly began to outsource the call centers that would often provide canned answers with little to no customer service. 

Well we now see a global manufacture take the lead in a new business model. DMG / Mori now offers 24/7 service from experts in the field that can truly answer your calls. Qualified response, 10 year / 24 parts delivery, and over 25 service centers through the United States and Canada alone. DMG / Mori is a leader in metal working equipment, but is now the leader in service.

ManuMan's insight:

 The NHX6300 is one of the best kept secrets of the industry. The NHX series is not a replacement of the world famous NH series, but a more nimble, faster, and more efficient machining platform. With over 2,000 IPM rapid / feed rate, the chip breaking power with a standard 40/33 HP spindle can handle any everyday job you can throw at it. This is not a little brother, but a turbo changed beast making its own mark in the world of machining. Welcome to the family little brother.
