That’s a Wrap for BIG KAISER’s 2018 Breakfast & Learn Event
Last week BIG KAISER wrapped up another successful Breakfast & Learn event which took place before DMG Mori’s Innovation Days. Attendees got to enjoy a delicious breakfast Tuesday through Thursday followed up by informative technical presentations and the chance to tour our stocked showroom.
Technical presentations started every morning at 8:30 am from May 8 through May 10. No two days covered the same subject, which created repeat attendance. For those that couldn’t join us, below is a summary of what our product managers discussed each day:
Tuesday’s theme was on advanced cutter and tool holding technologies for higher productivity milling. Our Sphinx product manager, Cory Cetkovic, outlined the current advantages and disadvantages of each type of tool holder and offered suggestions for applying each technology for optimum output and quality.
On Wednesday, modular systems product manager, Matt Tegelman, discussed digitally connected tooling systems and their advantages. These tools help give a real-time assessment of productivity and permit better decision making for future planning.
Thursday’s technical presentation was given by John Zaya, workholding product manager. John focused on defining the work zones of 5-axis machining, inherent associated tooling problems, and methodology for designing the most versatile quick-change solution for the machine.
We are thrilled with the outcome of our event and always enjoy seeing new and familiar faces at our headquarters. If you are interested in learning more about the topics mentioned above, give us a call, we are happy to connect you with our product experts (224) 770-2999.
