Heindenhain Opens Acu-Rite Education Center
Chicago-area facility offers custom training sessions as well as private meetings with technology experts to review product options and discuss specific application needs.
ATEC offers both demonstrations and training.
Heidenhain opens new Acu-Rite Technology Education Center (ATEC) in Schaumburg, Illiniois, to provide support to current and prospective North American customers. The facility offers direct access to see and use all its current Acu-Rite machine tool components, as well as the ability to call upon its training experts.
Guests can visit — by appointment and with safety/cleaning protocols in place — to view and test all of Acu-Rite’s current products, including its controls, digital readouts (DROs), encoders and accessories as applied to various machine tools. Machine tools currently demonstrated at ATEC include the three-axis Millpwr G2 control system on a vertical knee mill and two-axis Turnpwr control on a tool room lathe, all fully functional.
“We understand the importance of supporting North American manufacturing, maybe more so now than ever before,” says John Parker, Heidenhain’s business development manager for the Acu-Rite brand. “We believe it is our job to help machinists best equip their shop with the top tools and tips to move jobs through their systems quickly and most accurately.”
The facility offers custom training sessions, as well as private meetings to review product options and discuss specific application needs. Standard training sessions are listed on the Acu-Rite website.
