Acu-Rite’s manufacturing facilities have successfully moved from their long-time base in Jamestown, New York, to larger facilities at the North American headquarters of parent-company Heidenhain in Schaumburg, Illinois. This centralized location speeds the company’s access to the industrial manufacturing resources in the Chicago area.

“The production of the Acu-Rite products is now going strong in Illinois. At the same time, we continue to invest in the Acu-Rite R&D department that remains in Jamestown, New York,” says John Parker, Heidenhain’s machine tool business development manager.

Products currently on the Illinois manufacturing lines include all the digital readouts (models DRO10X, DRO203 and DRO30X) and DRO accessories such as IB2X and IOB610; all the encoder bracket kits such as those for SENC 150, SENC 50; and the Millpwr G2 control and associated components. Service and support of these Acu-Rite products have also been a focus during this operations transition. Dedicated staff are now in place in Schaumburg to provide Acu-Rite technical support as well as field service.

Mr. Parker says, “With these changes and investments, we expect the brand to become even stronger, and look forward to sharing that with all our distribution.”
