To maintain a competitive advantage in manufacturing, a company (or a country) must either offer products and services that contain so much generally unavailable know-how that competitors are discouraged from competing, or offer products using production processes that themselves involve a high degree of propietary knowledge. In either case, a constant flow of R and D money is required to ensure a continuing edge over competition. In the machine tool field this flow of research money has resultet in a combining on a single machine of a number of different but related workpiece processes. This research money has also resulted in a reduction of a machine's non-productive time by speeding up or by combining in time a number of peripheral functions. These and other productivity enhancing research results are the subject of this presentat
