Beer, Brats and Machine Tools

Being of German heritage, I never met an Oktoberfest I didn’t like. This fall has been rife with opportunities to attend various translations of this German tradition.

One recent celebration was at Absolute Machine Tools held at its Mason, Ohio, facility, a 40,000 square foot Technical Center, to see some of the new product lines the company is distributing. The company has been busy increasing the breadth of its machine tool offerings.

Augmenting its lines of You Ji VTLs, Johnford machining centers, Tontgai HMCs and Quick Tech multi-axis lathes as well as AccuteX EDM machines is the addition of Nexturn CNC Swiss-type and Precihole deep hole and gundrilling machines. Also on display was an integrated robot machine tool system that reflects Absolute’s new status as an authorized FANUC distributor.

Our hosts, husband and wife owners Steve and Courtney Ortner, put on a very nice spread of Bavarian foods, German beers served by costumed wait staff backed up with an um-pa-pa band.
