Three-day anniversary Open House included a comprehensive plant tour, equipment demonstrations and six different technical seminars.
The week of September 22, 2014, marked the celebration of the 140th anniversary of National Machinery, Tiffin, OH, USA. Over 150 global customers visited each of the three days during the company’s Open House.
Visitors were able to see the results of extensive plant expenditures over the last two years including investments in new production machining equipment, inspection equipment, process flow improvements and employee work areas.
A highlight of the Open House was the comprehensive plant tour of 18 stops, where a National expert explained his or her specific work area at each stop. This covered every main area in the facility from Met-MAX tooling applications and rebuilding, to assembly and production machining. One of the stops also included a demonstration of a complete machine line with DTI wire drawer, FORMAX® LeanFX and CTG/Ransohoff parts washer.
Other demonstrations included inspection technologies by Mectron, the new FORMAX XXV with robot tool changer and a FORMAX Warm Former.
Customers were given the opportunity to attend six different technical seminars during the Open House, which varied in topic and helped attendees gain knowledge in subjects such as maintenance practices, part applications and cold forming-related operations.
