VOL. 8 May ISSUE YEAR 2007


MFN met Michael Braus, the president of Proto Manufacturing for the first time in 2002 in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany at the International Conference on Shot Peening. It was inspiring to talk to such an interesting personality and ever since Michael has not only written a number of articles for MFN, but is also co-author of the book "Shot Peening". MFN took the chance to ask some more questions.

Jerry Conover, manager of automated blast systems at Empire Abrasive Equipment Company, updates his firm's growing success in emerging markets.
