KOMET and SCHUNK Hold Joint Distributor Event
The five-hour event included demos of SCHUNK workholding and toolholding working together seamlessly with KOMET cutting tools in a machining center on the production floor.
Pairing precision workholding and toolholding with precision cutting tools is a logical step for making the best parts in the most productive way. With that in mind, KOMET of America, Inc.(Schaumburg, IL), a leading global manufacturer for bore machining, reaming, and threading, and SCHUNK, Inc. (Morrisville, NC) a worldwide competence leader for clamping technology and gripping systems, honed in on their synergy and held a joint distributor event on April 9, 2014 at KOMET’s facility in Schaumburg.
The five-hour event consisted of morning presentations of products that were shown working together seamlessly in the afternoon in the machining center on the production floor. Three demos were displayed on the machining center using SCHUNK workholding and toolholding with KOMET cutting tools.
All types of workpieces and various materials, such as cast iron and aluminum, were machined, boasting the depth of KOMET tools as well as the variety of clamping technology available from SCHUNK, offering a wide array of flexibility. SCHUNK looks forward to more joint events that benefit not only joint distributors, but customers as well.
