Emuge Corp. announced the opening of a new technology center located at the company's North American headquarters in West Boylston, MA, USA. The center, designed to be a full-service resource for manufacturers to apply cutting tool application strategies, is equipped with the latest 3- and 5-axis vertical machining centers, precision measuring devices and tool monitoring, in addition to an interactive classroom for training and seminars. The technology center will serve customers across the U.S. and Canada, enabling manufacturing professionals to test cut their applications and develop milling, drilling, and threading strategies to optimize tool life and performance and reduce cycle times.
"Our new Technology Center was conceived as a resource for manufacturers to test new machining concepts and tools without tying up their valuable machines and manufacturing time," explained Bob Hellinger, president of Emuge Corp. "Our tooling engineers work directly with customers to replicate actual machining processes and develop new tooling and application parameters with complete documentation."
Three major services offered at the Emuge Corp. Technology Center include Test Cuts, CNC Programming Assistance and Comprehensive Training:
For the Test Cuts Program, customers can provide Emuge sample parts and prints for evaluation by experienced Emuge tooling engineers. Once approved, test cuts are performed and documented, along with optimal recommended solutions and strategies developed by Emuge.
For CNC Programming Assistance, Emuge programmers work closely with industry leading CAD/CAM provides such as Mastercam, Open Mind and others, to help the user generate maximum machining performance and incorporate optimal tool designs. Emuge will provide customers programing assistance, a wide range of CAM tools for solving complex applications, efficient toolpaths, sub routines and optimization.
Emuge also provides Training and Development in an interactive classroom supported by CNC machining equipment for hands-on, real-time training. Training and seminars will be offered throughout the year on various topics, or custom training can be provided to meet the needs of individual companies.
Emuge has also recently introduced complete tool reconditioning services at the West Boylston, MA facility, which now also houses a state-of-the-art tool grinding/manufacturing center for refurbishing Emuge tools.
