The Rollomatic Group has appointed Joe Kane COO for both Rollomatic Inc. and Strausak Inc. He will continue to hold his position as president of Strausak.

“Joe’s impressive track record working as president of Strausak Inc. and his ability to communicate and relate to people make him the ideal leader,” says Eric Schwarzenbach, president of Rollomatic. “We fully expect his talents will support the profitable growth of the Rollomatic and Strausak business.” 

Mr. Kane has been president of Strausak for over two years. Prior to joining Strausak, he spent over 14 years in the manufacturing and quality industry where he began as a metrology technician with the U.S. Marine Corps. 


  • Wire EDM with a Twist

    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.

  • Jig Grinding On A Machining Center

    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.

  • Grinding Carbide--A Niche Within A Niche

    If one must pick a manufacturing specialty, grinding carbide might not be the first choice because it’s perceived to be very difficult. RPM Carbide Die, however, has worked the material for nearly 40 years and, as specializing seems increasingly to be the order of the day, this northern Ohio shop is in a good position to thrive.
