Heule North America Celebrates 30 Years in Operation
On its 30th anniversary, Heule North America celebrated by inviting sales agents, customers, distributors, friends and family to an open house.
Heule Tool Corp. (HTC), based in Loveland, Ohio, recently celebrated its 30th anniversary serving manufacturers in North America. HTC was established in 1988 by Heule Werkzeug AG in Balgach, Switzerland, and was first located in West Plymouth, Michigan. After moving to Cincinnati in 1993, HTC continued to increase sales of its automated deburring, chamfering, countersinking and spotfacing tools in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
“Our customers in North America appreciate the high-quality product that the Swiss make,” says HTC President Gary Brown. Mr. Brown, who has been leading HTC for 29 years, thanks Heule Werkzeug AG CEO Ulf Heule and Ulf’s father, Heinrich, who invented the first automated deburring tool in 1961 and launched the company. “We couldn’t be here without you,” Brown says.
Ulf Heule thanks HTC employees for their hard work in making Heule successful in North America. “Today HTC is an important part of the Heule group,” he says. The Swiss company has subsidiaries in Germany, China and South Korea.
HTC celebrated its anniversary April 25, 2018, by inviting local sales agents, distributors, customers, government officials, business partners, friends and family to an open house and pig roast. Ulf Heule and Gary Brown also planted a tree on the grounds of HTC to commemorate 30 years of growth in North America.
Reducing cutting fluid use offers the chance for considerable cost savings. Tool life may even improve.
With macros and canned cycles resident in the CNC on most contemporary turning centers, single point turning of OD threads can seem like almost a default process decision. However, for numerous applications, OD thread rolling has inherent advantages as an alternative to cutting threads.
Cutting holes by interpolating a face milling cutter may be a better process choice for many rough and even finish boring operations. Software improvements and better cutter designs allow expanding use of the versatile face mill for hole making.
