Emuge Announces Opening of New Technology Center

Written by

Emuge Corp announced the opening of a new technology center, located at the company’s North American headquarters in West Boylston, MA, USA. The center, designed to be a full-service resource for manufacturers to apply cutting tool application strategies, is equipped with the latest 3 and 5-axis vertical machining centers, precision measuring devices and tool monitoring, in addition to an interactive classroom for training and seminars. The technology center will serve customers across the U.S. and Canada, enabling manufacturing professionals to test cut their applications and develop milling, drilling, and threading strategies to optimize tool life and performance and reduce cycle times.

“Our new Technology Center was conceived as a resource for manufacturers to test new machining concepts and tools without tying up their valuable machines and manufacturing time,” explained Bob Hellinger, President of Emuge Corp.  “Our tooling engineers work directly with customers to replicate actual machining processes and develop new tooling and application parameters with complete documentation.”

Three major services offered at the Technology Center include Test Cuts, CNC Programming Assistance and Comprehensive Training.

For the Test Cuts Program, customers can provide Emuge sample parts and prints for evaluation by experienced Emuge tooling engineers. Once approved, test cuts are performed and documented, along with optimal recommended solutions and strategies developed by Emuge.

For CNC Programming Assistance, Emuge programmers work closely with industry leading CAD/CAM provides such as Mastercam, Open Mind and others, to help the user generate maximum machining performance and incorporate optimal tool designs. Emuge will provide customers programing assistance, a wide range of CAM tools for solving complex applications, efficient toolpaths, sub routines and optimization.

Emuge also provides Training and Development in an interactive classroom supported by CNC machining equipment for hands-on, real-time training. Training and seminars will be offered throughout the year on various topics, or custom training can be provided to meet the needs of individual companies.

Emuge has also recently introduced complete tool reconditioning services at the West Boylston, MA facility, which now also houses a state-of-the-art tool grinding/manufacturing center for refurbishing Emuge tools.

Emuge has recently donated hundreds of high performance taps, end mills and other rotary cutting tools to Quinsigamond Community College of Worcester, MA. The tool donation, valued at more than $100,000, will be used to support the college’s ambitious new machining technology program that was recently formed.

QCC is expanding and updating its Manufacturing Technology Center, a multi-million dollar facility housing a range of technological equipment on their main Worcester campus. This center provides students with hands-on learning experiences in today’s advanced manufacturing technologies. The center boasts new CNC machining centers, metrology equipment and a wide array of tools and software, to enable the manufacturing and inspection of real world parts and components. The Manufacturing Technology Center is designed to complement the college’s STEM programming in the soon to be opened QuEST Center (Quinsigamond Engineering, Science and Technology Center).

“We are thrilled to have received this very generous donation of tools from Emuge,” said Dr. Gail Carberry, President of QCC. “We are especially pleased that Emuge reached out to us regarding the donation at a time when we are actively building and implementing expanded programming in manufacturing and engineering technologies. The new initiative is designed to equip our students with the knowledge and practical skills necessary to fill the rapidly growing gap in the manufacturing workforce and help them secure careers in advanced manufacturing. The tools will be a huge plus for the program.”

“We are please to support QCC’s manufacturing education program by collaborating with not only tool donations, but also offering our knowledge and expertise in today’s advanced precision manufacturing sectors, such as aerospace, defense, medical and automotive,” said Mr. Bob Hellinger, President of Emuge Corp. “We are very willing to support QCC’s efforts, share our knowledge, our nearby West Boylston technology center and our high quality tools. Hopefully we can also offer recruitment opportunities wherever possible for QCC students, especially as we expand our manufacturing capabilities in our West Boylston facility. Keeping an eye on our future, it is certainly in our interest to acquire skilled manufacturing talent. The industry is in dire need of advanced manufacturing skills. To address this, we are willing and eager to establish a mutually beneficial relationship with QCC,” added Hellinger.

QCC was established in 1963 to provide access to higher education to residents of Central Massachusetts. Since its founding, enrollment has grown from 300 to over 13,000 full and part-time day, evening and online students. QCC has over 100 associate degree and certificate career options in Business, Healthcare, Technology, Liberal Arts, and Human Services. The College also offers a wide variety of non-credit courses, workshops, and seminars through its Center for Workforce Development and Continuing Education.

Emuge Corp. is a wholly owned subsidiary of the 1,500+ employee German company EMUGE-Werk Richard Glimpel GmbH & Co. KG (Lauf, Germany) that has been the product technology and performance leader in their field for nearly 100 years. The company manufactures an extensive line of taps, thread mills, drills, end mills, toolholders, clamping devices and other rotary cutting tools, over 100,000 items sold through distributors worldwide.  Emuge also offers end-user technical support through a network of in-the-field engineers and in-house product specialists, all with extensive tooling and application experience.
