Breakfast & Learn Sessions Kick Off with a Bang

A larger-than-expected group of about 70 joined us at our headquarters in Hoffman Estates this morning for the first of three Breakfast & Learn sessions. Considering the numbers and feedback, we’ve got to say: Day 1 was a great success.

Cory talks tool holding in the second morning presentation

In addition to filling up on omelettes and the breakfast standards, attendees got a steady diet of tooling knowledge from two of our Product Managers, Cory Cetkovic and Doug Sumner. Doug, our tool measuring systems expert, delivered “Selecting the Right Tool Presetter for Your Needs.” Cory, our Sphinx guru, followed that up with a tool holding discussion themed “BIG-PLUS® vs. HSK.”

We can’t wait for Wednesday and Thursday – where we’re expecting more than 200 metalworking professionals. And if the excitement this morning was any indication, there is sure to be great discussion and networking the next two mornings. If you’re in town for DMG MORI Innovation Days, we’re right next door. We encourage you to stop by—RSVP here.
