Crowds gathered for the world premiere of two machining centers, to watch cutting demos on titanium, aluminum and steel workpieces, and to attend a host of educational seminars. 

Those attending the SNK America Tech Center Open House September 16-17, 2015, in Mt. Prospect, Illinois, were introduced to two new machines, the RB-4M five-face machining center and the CMV-100 five-axis machining center, in a relaxed setting that mixed education with innovation and encouraged networking among the company’s staff, customers and corporate partners. In addition to live cutting demonstrations—see a variety of video demos here—educational sessions addressed topics including machining aerospace alloys (Kennametal), probing strategies (CNC Engineering), tool path optimization (Mastercam) and 3D process verification (CGTech/Vericut).

One guest was John Bruns, business unit director at the GMT Corp., a supplier to the agriculture, construction, energy and defense markets that is based in Waverly, Iowa. “When I attend an event such as this, I want to see what technological advances have been made over the past year,” he says. “SNK America never lets me down.”
