Heule Precision Tool’s BSF tooling has been selected as a finalist for the 2018 Swiss-American Business Council (SABC) Innovation Award. Members of the SABC were invited to submit an innovative product or service that has been launched within the last three years and has strengthened the U.S.-Swiss business relationship. The award’s judging committee looks at the following criteria:

  • The innovation must have been launched by an organization based in the Midwest that is Swiss or collaborates closely with a Swiss organization
  • Does the product or service meet an unmet need?
  • How unique is the product or service?
  • What new value does the product or service create for the end users?
  • What financial evidence or market acceptance information is available about the product or service?

Heule’s BSF automated back-spotfacing tool was chosen for its ability to reduce production costs while improving product quality in high-production manufacturing environments. The tool is manufactured at the Heule factory in Switzerland and distributed to North American customers through Heule Tool Corporation, their US subsidiary. LNS’s e-connect Ethernet system, which allows communication between CNC machines and bar loaders, was also chosen as a finalist. Big Kaiser won the award for its EWE fine boring heads. 

“Congratulations to LNS and especially Big Kaiser,” says Heule Tool Corporation President Gary Brown.  “It is truly an honor to be mentioned with these innovative companies.”
