HAIMER Looks Back at Event-Full Year
Haimer USA enjoyed greeting old friends, meeting new ones and spreading the word about precision machining at all of the events the company attended in 2019.
Haimer USA took a moment to reflect on the events of the past 12 months. Last year, Haimer representatives presented at 52 trade shows across the county and around the world. These events are a great opportunity to show machinists the latest technology from Haimer in person. Haimer enjoys greeting old friends, meeting new ones and spreading the word about precision machining and how the company can help manufacturers do it better and faster.
At HOUSTEX, Haimer hosted over 260 students for the HOUSTEX Student Summit. The Student Summit aims to create interest, excitement and an appreciation for manufacturing. President Brent Holden spoke with students about HAIMER’s history and innovative product line. In this video, Holden demonstrates the company’d Tool Dynamic balancing machine, the VIO linear presetter, the power clamp I4.0 shrink machine and the Duo-Lock collets.
The company’s theme for its annual Open House event was “Your System Partner Around the Machine Tool.” The company introduced innovations surrounding Industry 4.0 with products that enable enhanced data communication and collection. Live demonstrations were provided on shrink and balance technology, cutting tools and tool presetting. Guest Speakers included Steve Kline Jr., Chief Data Officer at Gardner Business Media, Inc; Wayne Messmer, a professional speaker, singer, broadcaster, author and actor; and Kathrin Haimer (authorized representative and head of human resources) who spoke on “Bridging the Skills Gap Through Haimer’s Apprenticeship Program.”
One of the other great programs offered at the company is the HAIMER Competence Center Partner (HCCP) Training. HCCP is a partnership program which provides exclusive benefits including comprehensive classroom and hands-on technical sales training. Multiple times throughout the year, the company offered a two-day training session where attendees learned about its products via lectures, videos and live demonstrations.
Over 117,000 production specialists from 150 countries convened at the EMO 2019, the world's leading tradeshow for the metal-working industry. At Haimer’s booth, the company displayed how modern tool management works with high-quality, process-reliable components, consistent digitalization and fully automated tool presetting using a robot cell.
