When Manufacturing Industry Events Are Delayed
Walter is moving to a digital product launch Wednesday at 10 a.m. CET (5 a.m. ET) in light of the coronavirus causing a significant delay for an in-person launch.
Walter Maschinenbau GmbH, a member of the United Grinding Group, is ready to unveil its new products despite the fact that GrindTec 2020, the international trade fair for grinding technology, has been postponed until November 10-13 in Augsburg, Germany. Instead of delaying the product launch, the company has found a way to promote its products now, though a digital product launch.
Visit the company’s website WEDNESDAY at 10 a.m. CET (5 a.m. ET) to see the presentation.
In November, the company still plans on being in Hall 2, Booth 2055 to present a complete range of precision machining products for grinding, eroding, laser and measurement technology. The company will also have more information about United Grinding Digital Solutions.
Roughing and finishing on a single machine, using a single setup, has appeal for most shops. The advantages in time savings and accuracy are obvious. Eliminating the transport of workpieces between machines, as well as the setup for those secondary operations, is a boon for throughput. Critical features that need to maintain dimensional relationships can be much more reliably produced if machined complete in one clamping.
Wire EDM units that swivel a horizontally guided electrode wire in a CNC-controlled E axis give this shop the workpiece clearance and flexibility to produce complex, high-precision PCD-tipped cutting tools.
Advanced grinding equipment gives this shop the flexibility and automation it needs to serve customers with either rapid-response or high-volume jobs.
