Haimer USA, Fullerton Tool Sign Licensing Agreement
Fullerton Tool will now offer Haimer’s Safe-Lock pull-out system.
Fullerton Tool Co., a solid carbide tool manufacturer, and Haimer USA, a manufacturer of toolholding technology, have recently signed a U.S. licensing agreement for Haimer’s Safe-Lock anti-pullout system.
Brendt Holden, president of Haimer USA, says, “We are very happy to have formed a partnership with Fullerton Tool, an American market leader in the cutting tool industry. Fullerton’s precision-made tooling is well suited for the Haimer Safe-Lock system. I fully believe Fullerton customers will welcome the added security and inherent balance and precision of the Safe-Lock System that will allow them to increase their shop’s productivity.”
“Fullerton Tool is excited to partner up with a world class tool holder company like Haimer,” says Patrick Curry, president of Fullerton Tool. “The combination of Fullerton Tools’ advance performance end mills and Haimer Safe-Lock is a proved solution for our customers who have challenging machining applications.”
