I recently spent an informative day in Saline, Michigan, meeting with Peter Wiedemann, president of Liebherr Automation Systems, Co./Liebherr Gear Technology Inc., along with Scott Yoders, vice president of gearing sales, and Kevin Heise, vice president of automation sales. Mr. Wiedemann provided an overview of the company’s global structure and a tour of its U.S. headquarters (pictured), which offers sales and support services for its aerospace and machine tool product divisions. U.S. manufacturing operations are located at its plant in Newport News, Virginia. Parent company Liebherr Verzahntechik GmbH is based in Kempten, Germany.

While in Michigan, I learned of the upcoming Liebherr 2015 Gear Seminar, which will take place June 23-24. It will be co-hosted by Ingersoll Cutting Tools at its technical center in Rockford, Illinois. An annual event for the past 20 years, the seminar offers technical presentations on the latest developments in gear cutting and inspection technology made by experts from Liebherr Gear Technology, Liebherr Automation Systems, Ingersoll Cutting Tools, the Saacke Group and the Wenzel Group. Qualified guests will have the opportunity to tour the Ingersoll shop floor and to witness a hobbing demonstration on Liebherr’s LC 500. Those interested in attending can contact Liebherr at 734-944-6369 or info.lgt@liebherr.com. I hope to see you there!
