Schunk Appoints VP of Toolholding and Workholding Sales
Allan Logan has more than 20 years of industry experience and has been with Schunk since 2018.
Schunk has announced the promotion of Allan Logan to vice president of sales for toolholding and workholding. In his new role, Logan will be responsible for developing and implementing strategic channel and global-focused product initiatives.
Logan has more than 20 years of territory sales and team management experience in the metalworking industry. He started his career in account management for cutting tools and abrasives before holding various roles as sales engineer, aerospace industry specialist and regional sales manager. Since joining Schunk in 2018 as the director of sales for the Eastern U.S. region, he has managed a group of regional sales managers across 20 states. His team has been responsible for incremental sales growth in the last two years.
“Allan has shown tremendous leadership capability in his time here at Schunk. With his focus on helping the customer succeed and his dedication to the manufacturing industry, Allan is a natural fit to lead our tooling and workholding teams,” says Milton Guerry, president of Schunk USA.
A system to be marketed in 2015 will apply ultrasonic vibration from within the toolholder to reduce cutting force and improve the performance of the cut.
The book on hydraulic toolholders is that they are fussy to set, fragile to operate and expensive to buy. So why do many shops choose them over other holders that seem less demanding? This Chicago mold builder has good reasons for its choice.
Far from being outdated by the latest machine tool technology, angle heads often prove an ideal complement by pushing done-in-one capabilities even further. Proper application, however, requires attention to their limitations as well as their benefits.
