Röhm GmbH named Matthew Mayer chief executive officer of North American division.
AME builds fixturing to fit an ever-increasing variety of sizes, styles and materials in TRD workpiece blocks that are used for quick set-up and the flexibility to run small or large batches of product.
The workholding manufacturer donates eight vises that are used in training veterans how to become skilled machinists.
Ideal for production machining, the OML Genius 5-axis vise from Lexair pulls jaws together at the top to clamp down the workpiece with a 9,000 lb force that eliminates issues faced with traditional vise jaws.
The Kontec KSX NC vise from Schunk USA provides a safe and secure hold, even for minimum clamping surfaces, between 0 to 250 mm. By using draw bar and base body extensions, the clamping range can be enlarged to 749 mm.
