Helios Announces New Technical Leadership

Dennis Hillary

Helios Gear Products (formerly Koepfer America) announced that Dennis Hillary has taken the new leadership position of Senior Service Engineer for the company's technical service group. "In response to growing demand for gear machine tool solutions, this team's size has doubled over the past two years," said a Helios spokesperson. Hillary now provides team leadership and mentorship, in addition to continued technical service for Helios's North American gear manufacturing customers.

Hillary began his career as a tool maker for a manufacturer in the Rockford, IL, area. He later joined Ingersoll Machine Tools as a machine assembler, where his 15 years' experience with Ingersoll grew to include general machine building, troubleshooting and technical service. Hillary then worked for a machine tool rebuilder and retrofitter in the 1990s where he honed his experience and acumen for mechanical machine tool work.

In 1998, Hillary joined Koepfer America as a service engineer for the fine-pitch gear manufacturing industry. "As Koepfer America evolved its solutions, such as introducing the KFS series gear tool sharpening machines in 1999, Dennis became a critical member of the technical team," said the spokesperson. "Today, Helios Gear Products recognizes Dennis as the senior leader for mechanical technical challenges, which include continued production of KFS gear tool sharpening machines, rebuilding and re-controlling of Koepfer models 160 and 200 CNC gear hobbing machines, supporting Helios's existing North American machine installations and training the next generation of Helios personnel."
