Ceratizit’s Executive Director of Technology and Solutions, Mark Blosser, has been selected to present at Siemens Realize LIVE U.S. conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, June 12–15, 2023. The conference is Siemens’ flagship event focusing on advances and best practices in digital transformation.
Blosser’s curriculum spotlights the symbiotic relationship between tooling and software in revolutionizing advanced manufacturing’s core applications. Centered on Ceratizit’s High Dynamic Turning (HDT) process with the company’s FreeTurn tools, Blosser will bring the future of turning operations to life for conference attendees. Ceratizit’s HDT and FreeTurn work in concert with Siemens NX CAM software to combine all traditional operations—roughing, finishing, contour turning, face turning, and longitudinal turning—in just one tool. The flexible approach angle of the tool allows for multiple machining possibilities, reducing the time invested in set-up and accelerating machine utilization. The dynamic capability of FreeTurn combined with HDT technology and programming reimagines turning applications for manufacturers and cuts their machining time by up to 25 percent.
Blosser has four decades of professional experience in the manufacturing industry and holds a computer science degree from St. Petersburg College and a machine technology degree from Pinellas Technical College. In his current leadership position with Ceratizit, Blosser oversees high-level, complex projects that help customers optimize and streamline their operations.
