EMUGE-FRANKEN and GROB Announce Strategic Partnership

(l-r) EMUGE-FRANKEN USA President Bob Hellinger and GROB Key Account Manager Kevin Gadde with the new GROB G350T 5-axis mill-turn machine installed in the EMUGE-FRANKEN USA Technology Center.

EMUGE-FRANKEN USA and GROB Systems, Inc. announced that the two companies have formed a strategic partnership. "The synergistic alignment of EMUGE-FRANKEN, a high-performance cutting tools manufacturer, and GROB, an innovative CNC machining center manufacturer, will provide advanced 5-axis solutions, expertise and support," said a spokesperson.

Commencing the new partnership, a GROB G350T 5-Axis Universal Mill-Turn Machining Center was recently installed in the EMUGE-FRANKEN Technology Center in West Boylston, MA. This new manufacturing, research and development facility for North American manufacturers is designed to be a resource for applying cutting tool application strategies. To further reinforce the new partnership, a GROB application engineer is located and available onsite at EMUGE-FRANKEN to work together with EMUGE-FRANKEN engineers to develop turn-key 5-axis solutions, perform customer application test cuts, conduct machining demonstrations and more.

"We are pleased to announce our strategic partnership with GROB in North America," said Bob Hellinger, President of EMUGE-FRANKEN USA. "It is a powerful and natural alliance, as both our family-owned companies already have a strong relationship in Germany where worldwide headquarters are located for GROB and EMUGE-FRANKEN. We look forward to building on each other's strengths and optimizing challenging 5-axis mill-turn applications for industries such as aerospace, medical, energy and automotive."

"We invite manufacturers to bring application challenges to us for programming support, test cuts and efficient, comprehensive solutions. By working together, GROB's world leading 5-axis technology and EMUGE-FRANKEN's advanced cutting tool technology produce highly efficient results such as autonomous automated lights-out machining," said Kevin Gadde, GROB Key Account Manager. "The new partnership also gives customers the opportunity to see demonstrations of powerful machining solutions for demanding aerospace, die and mold, production machining and more at technical seminars and events in West Boylston."

The EMUGE-FRANKEN Technology Center allows manufacturers to test new machining concepts and tools without tying up their own valuable machines and manufacturing hours. Actual machining processes are replicated and new tooling and application parameters are developed along with complete documentation. In addition, adjacent to the Technology Center, complementary training sessions and seminars are offered in an interactive classroom.

Aerospace manufacturers, as well as those with other demanding 5-axis mill-turn applications, can collaborate with EMUGE-FRANKEN and GROB to optimize their parts and components on the high productivity, compact GROB 350T together with the full line of EMUGE-FRANKEN cutting tool solutions ranging from taps, thread mills and end mills to carbide drills, toolholders, precision workholding/clamping devices and other rotary cutting tools.
