Earlier this year, Hardinge announced the company’s acquisition by private investment firm Privet Fund Management LLC. The theme introduced by the new ownership is “Rethink Normal,” with a new approach to getting the job done. Three members of the company’s executive team are in the booth this week sharing their ideals and generating discussions about how Hardinge plans to evolve the way shops do business.

The company has two booths at the show. In the South Building, the Hardinge booth focuses on metal cutting, with 10 machines running, including the new Talent GT gang-tool lathe and Kellenberger 100 cylindrical grinder. The company’s workholding products are displayed in the Forkardt booth in the West Building, which also features a Bridgeport V480 APC vertical machining center with Forkardt rotary table.

Stop by both booths to see the products in action.
