Customer Appreciation Open House 2014

Before the waistline’s grew this Holiday Season, Knox Machinery’s 2014 Customer Appreciation Open House provided an opportunity for mind expansion as it presented “The Mitsubishi Control”, on Wednesday Dec. 10th and “Simple Probing Task” on Thursday Dec. 11th.

A special thank you to David High, application engineer at Mitsubishi, who traveled from Chicago to give the audience a look into the Mitsubishi 700 control, which included live simulations as customers came up with questions. A major take away from the class is that fact that if you can program other G&M code controls, you’ll be able to quickly harness the speed and power of the Mitsubishi control with very little extra learning.

Another special thank you is to Doug McPhillips, application engineer at Knox Machinery, for providing customers with a real world application on Renishaw tool setters and spindle probes. Live demonstrations included touching off tools using a software and a program provided by Renishaw, as well as a spindle probe automatically aligning a coned shaped forging on a five axis table. Small job shops to fortune 100 companies were in attendance and everyone learned something.

Of course we can’t forget Santa and Mrs. Claus… a very special thank you to them and all of the people who made the open house a success and enjoyable time for all.
