LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill., April 28, 2015 – GF Machining Solutions is planning a special, three-day technology and education event called Solutions Days at its Competence Center in Lincolnshire, Illinois. During the event, scheduled for June 17-19, the company will feature advanced part-processing demonstrations and run a series of manufacturing-based workshops.
According to Gisbert Ledvon, director of business development for GF Machining Solutions, the company intends for Solutions Days to be the year’s foremost event for manufacturers that specialize in precision part production for industries that include aerospace, automotive, medical and moldmaking.
Event attendees can expect to see the company’s latest milling, EDM, laser texturing and automation technologies in action as well as have the opportunity to discuss these different forms of part processing with the company’s applications experts.
For those attendees interested in learning about new metalworking trends and techniques, GF Machining Solutions will run a series of technology and applications-focused workshops during Solutions Days.
Topics covered in these workshops will include revolutions in high-speed 5-axis machining, how 3DS die-sinking technology can improve tool life and cycle times in mold machining, new developments in laser texturing technology, as well as the latest workholding and automation solutions for the company’s System 3R.
Additionally, with the skilled labor shortage still being an issue in the manufacturing industry, GF Machining Solutions will discuss ways to overcome this challenge through advanced machine tool technology.
“Solutions Days represents our dedication to helping customers stay ahead of the manufacturing curve,” said Ledvon. “Not only will attendees get to see our latest technologies in action, they will leave the event highly informed on ways to improve their operations in today’s competitive global marketplace.”
Solutions Days will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, June 17 and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday, June 18 and Friday, June 19. Registration for this event is now open at www.gfms.com/us/openhouse2015.
