Emuge and Brooks Associates Announce Collaboration
Emuge’s expanded technology center in Massachusetts will now include a number of vertical machining centers and turning centers for demonstration and solution engineering.
Emuge Corp. and machine tools supplier Brooks Associates Inc. have announced a collaborative effort that expands their respective capabilities for customer training, machining demonstrations and applications testing. Beginning with the placement of two Hurco machines in Emuge’s West Boylston, Massachusetts, Technology Center, Brooks Associates is increasing its market presence in central Massachusetts by opening a 2,500-square-foot showroom at Emuge’s newly expanded Manufacturing and Technology Center.
In addition to the two existing Hurco vertical machining centers, Brooks Associates will showcase an additional Hurco VMC as well as a turning center, a Takumi die/mold machining center, an LK Machinery VMC and drill/tap machine, and a Yama Seiki turning center and VMC.
Michael Klier, president of Brooks Associates, says, “Our relationship with Emuge will enable us to better serve our customers from a central location in New England in a modern facility. We look forward to a long, mutually beneficial affiliation, where we can work together to leverage knowledge and capabilities to improve our product offerings and break into new markets.”
“This is a win-win relationship,” says Bob Hellinger, president of Emuge. “We are very pleased to work with Brooks Associates and have their precision machining equipment in our recently expanded, state-of-the-art Technology Center for training, machining, cutting tool demonstrations and application tests. We are able to conduct a wide range of real-world tests and demonstrations due to the distinct capabilities offered by each machine tool.”
