Scheduled for September 16 and 17 at the company’s North American headquarters in Miamisburg, Ohio, United Grinding’s upcoming “Universe” event aims to educate manufacturers on the full breadth of the its product line.   Throughout the symposium-style event, the company will use advanced machines from its Studer, Blohm, Walter and Ewag lines to demonstrate how ID/OD, match, creep feed, centerless, radius, universal and other modern grinding techniques can improve productivity and boost part quality. Among these machines are the new Studer S151, a universal internal cylindrical grinding machine, and the new Blohm Profimat MT, a high-performance production grinding machine. The company will also showcase an advanced automation cell to demonstrate the use of its machines in lights-out manufacturing.  

Application engineers will be available during the more than 16 technology demonstrations to answer questions and discuss how new developments in surface and profile, cylindrical and tool grinding can produce precision parts at the best possible value. Supplementary technical lectures will follow these demonstrations so attendees can further explore the new grinding frontier. 

Other key topics of discussions at the event will include how in-process and post-process gauging, automation, software, coolant, abrasive technology and preventive maintenance play important roles in optimizing the overall grinding process.

Furthermore, attendees can leverage the diverse experience of the company’s staff to find the best grinding strategy for growing and/or optimizing their unique operations. Company representatives available during the event will include applications engineers, customer care representatives, executive team members as well as experts who represent each of the United Grinding brands in Europe. Several ancillary grinding machine suppliers will also be on hand to share technology advancements within their respective areas and how they relate to United Grinding equipment.    

Terry Derrico, president and CEO of United Grinding North America, says the United Grinding Universe Event is a great opportunity for any company that wants to reshore or grow their business in the highly competitive global marketplace. “Our event will be this year’s primary source for all things grinding. And those who attend will leave having complete knowledge of the latest grinding technologies and techniques for improved productivity and profitability.” 

As part of the event, the company will host a special evening event at the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery on September 16 for those who wish to further network with peers. The evening’s agenda will include dinner, entertainment and a special guest speaker from the world of space travel.
