MIAMISBURG, Ohio – Beginning next month, UNITED GRINDING will make it possible for manufacturers to get in front of the latest precision cylindrical grinding technology without having to travel far. The company has plans to take its new compact, highly productive STUDER S11 for small workpiece production on a six-city tour across the United States as well as make the machine a focal point at two open house events in Canada and Mexico.
"By showcasing the S11 at key channel partner locations across North America, we can effectively demonstrate and/or discuss the machine in close proximity to our customers," said Ted Neckel, director of corporate marketing for UNITED GRINDING North America, Inc. "In today's competitive marketplace, manufacturers don't want to spend a lot of time away from their operations, and product showcase initiatives such as this quickly and easily get them in front of new technology and then back to work."
UNITED GRINDING will conduct live grinding demonstrations on the S11 at STUDER distributor locations in Greer, S.C. (Feb. 19 and 20); Rochester, N.Y. (Feb. 26 and 27); Brecksville, Ohio (March 5 and 6); Livonia, Mich. (March 12 and 13); Itasca, Ill. (March 26 and 27) and Los Alamitos, Calif. (April 22 and 23). The open house in Canada will take place April 8 and 9 in Woodbridge, Ontario, while the dates and location for the open house in Mexico will be forthcoming.
First introduced at EMO 2013, the S11 is the smallest machine in the STUDER portfolio and tailor-made for small workpieces up to 7.9" (200 mm) in length and 2" (50 mm) in diameter. According to Neckel, the extremely compact cylindrical grinding machine delivers a level or productivity and Swiss precision that will amaze even the most experienced grinding specialists. Furthermore, the S11 is one of the first machines to feature the new UNITED GRINDING Group design protocol that brings added value to customers in terms of ergonomics and operability.
STUDER is one of eight brands in the UNITED GRINDING portfolio of grinding and ultra-precision finishing solutions for the manufacturing industry.
