As a visitor to Gosigerfest 2013, which was held in Dayton, Ohio, I had the opportunity to meet with a wide variety of vendors and have a little fun along the way. One of the main draws of the two-day event, aside from the German food and festivities, was the opportunity to meet with more than 50 vendors to discuss their expertise in bar feeders, CAD/CAM, coolant and high-pressure systems, inspection and tool monitoring, tooling, workholding, and finance. Entire exhibits halls were dedicated to Okuma and Hardinge demos.
As a machine tool and accessories distributor, Gosiger works to distinguish itself from its competition through three main problem-solving outlets.
- Engineered Systems: This division is responsible for providing shops with turnkey solutions—from machines to tools, including processes and documentation on how to run this process.
- Automation: According to the company, some shop owners assume that automation is complex and expensive. However, Gosiger says it works to create scalable automated systems that are very user friendly.
- High Volume: Gosiger’s high-volume team researches strategies used worldwide to bring speed, accuracy and reliability to a shop’s unique situation.
