On Tuesday, May 5, and Wednesday, May 6, Heartland Machine & Engineering welcomed visitors to an open house at its headquarters in Franklin, Indiana. Heartland provides machine tool sales, service, engineering, and applied automation, acting as a distributor for such lines as Shigiya CNC OD grinders (vertical and horizontal), Hurise 1- and 2-spindle grinders, Palmary centerless and OD grinders, and Clausing toolroom equipment. One of the company’s newer offerings is the line of Bulova large vertical machining centers, designed for quality, precision, and value.

Tuesday’s festivities kicked off with a ribbon-cutting ceremony to open Heartland’s second building at the location. The building was constructed for turnkeys as well as housing of inventories of spare parts and machines for the DMC line, including a broad range of horizontal and vertical turning centers, vertical machining centers, and tapping centers. Heartland has been a DMC exclusive partner for Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, and Tennessee since 2011, and has placed more than 200 machines in the past two years.

The event also included table top exhibits from partner companies including Horn, LNS, Tecnara, Cimcool, Mastercam, and Hainbuch. One of these companies—Fusion Coolant Systems—was displaying a supercritical carbon dioxide MQL coolant system designed for applications such as medical implants, where cleanliness is critical.
