Big Kaiser Precision Tooling welcomed customers and partners to the grand opening of its new headquarters April 29-30. The two-day event showcased the new, 33,000-sq.-ft. facility located in Hoffman Estates, Ill. Highlights included a 5,000-sq.-ft. product showroom, a training and presentation room, and an in-house repair center.
Tooling and workholding demonstrations were set up and running on three machining centers located in the showroom: a Toyoda Machinery FH400J HMC, a Mori Seiki DuraVertical 5080 VMC, and a Chiron FZ 12KS five-axis VMC. The machines will remain in the showroom and be used for new-product testing and customer demos and training. Multiple configurations of the Speroni Magis and Esperia tool presetters further complement the features of the showroom.
Technical seminars and roundtable discussions ran throughout the two-day event.
