Hello Metalworking Nation! We are coming to you from our studio at the DMDII in Goose Island, Illinois. On today’s episode, we continue to have a dialogue about what you can do to prepare your manufacturing business for the future. Jim and Jason talk about how future technologies will impact their respective businesses as they build on the framework we discussed on the last episode. In Manufacturing News, we discuss Apple’s $1 Billion Advanced Manufacturing Fund and how the awards that Apple is doling out from it are really just prepayments in disguise.
