EMAG USA celebrated its 20th anniversary by hosting "Technology Days," an open house for manufacturers and vendors last month at its Farmington Hills, Michigan headquarters.
Throughout the two-day event manufacturing decision-makers attended technology seminars held by EMAG's industry experts. Attendees gained valuable knowledge in both industry trends and EMAG manufacturing solutions. Participants expanded their process know-how in eight presentations, including CV-Joint production, brake disc machining with continuous workpiece flow, electro-chemical machining and production laser welding.
EMAG's first spindle down machine was also introduced in the VM Platform world-premier seminar. Paul Traub, Business Economist from the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and Lisa Katz, Executive Director of the Workforce Intelligence Network of Southeast Michigan provided insights into the economy and manufacturing's role in supporting economic recovery and a highly-skilled workforce. These hot-topics not only provided the opportunity for EMAG to re-introduce its new Mechatronics Apprenticeship Program, but also provided guests the chance to pose questions and sparked many discussions amongst participants.
Another highlight of the event was the live metalworking demonstrations on multiple EMAG machines. Attendees witnessed world-class manufacturing solutions for carrier production on the VLC 250, combination machining with the VSC 400 DDS hard-turn and grinding, and two-sided shaft machining on the VT 2-4 from EMAG's new Modular Standard product family.
The unique event allowed participants to secure greater process knowledge in their markets and provided numerous networking opportunities within the industry.
"We like to open our doors and welcome in both known and new customers to see the capabilities of our production facility and meet our team while sharing with them the wide range of solutions EMAG has to offer for any manufacturing challenge," stated Peter Loetzner, CEO of EMAG LLC. "We are proud to celebrate 20 years of operation in the US with our customers and share with them how we are advancing technologies to make the next 20 years even more successful."
