The exhibit at the large machine tool show highlighted the measurement technology solutions based on closed-loop processes. Based on this highly successful collaboration, the joint open house was arranged to bring customers face-to-face with both Wenzel and Nidec’s machines and experts.
“Gear Up For Precision is the perfect way to show how Wenzel’s metrology systems integrate into any production process. We are excited to have Nidec as a partner to demonstrate how we apply this to the gear industry,” said Drew Shemenski, President of Wenzel America. “Collaborations like this are a way we bring innovation to a wide variety of industries, such as aerospace, mobility, and contract manufacturing.” Shemenski continued, “We are honored that Wenzel’s CEO, Dr. Heike Wenzel, and Chief Digital Officer, Prof. Dr. Heiko Wenzel are participating in this event, bringing the global perspective.”
According to Nidec Machine Tool America VP of Sales Scott Knoy, “Our joint effort with Wenzel in the open house offers gear manufacturers the ability to visit both WENZEL and see Nidec’s advanced equipment first-hand and speak with our technical experts.”
