GROB Systems, Inc. will be featuring its American built CNC machine tools and automation solutions at WESTEC booth 2125.

"For over 30 years, GROB's Bluffton, OH, production plant has been manufacturing a wide range of 4- and 5-axis precision milling and mill/turn machines, assembly lines and a growing breadth of automation solutions all which are designed to the parent company's stringent German quality standards," said a company spokesperson. GROB provides service, parts, spindles and engineering, as well as produces the full GROB product line within its 400,000-sq.-ft. Ohio facility that has over 800 employees.

GROB machining centers offer high productivity in a range of sizes and configurations to meet diverse customer requirements. "Providing a unique machine concept featuring a horizontal spindle position that permits the longest possible Z-travel path and optimum chip fall, the GROB 5-axis universal machining centers are offered for milling and mill/turn applications for diverse industries such as aerospace, medical, mold/die, automotive and more," said the spokesperson. "The GROB Access Series, which is part of the Universal Machine Line, offers economy as well as fully featured 5-axis technology to meet demanding application requirements. GROB also manufactures heavy-duty 4-axis machining centers for an ideal combination of stability, vibration damping and dynamics."

For increased productivity enabling unmanned operation, automation solutions are available for the entire GROB machine portfolio. GROB's Automation Technology ranges from pallet and part handling/storage systems to highly flexible, turn-key manufacturing lines.

"GROB customers see a big advantage in having the automation and machining center come from the same builder because it enables a better support model to keep the cell running at high efficiency long-term," said the spokesperson.

Attendees are also invited to inquire about the GROB Apprenticeship Program, critical to helping reduce the skilled labor shortage. GROB is dedicated to developing skilled employees, and offers an apprenticeship program: a four-year journey comprised of job-specific training, while also building a strong educational foundation. Apprentices get hands-on training and work alongside experienced technicians in the manufacturing and assembly areas to further develop their technical skills. The Apprenticeship Program has been very successful over 30% of GROB's current workforce in Bluffton is comprised of past or current apprentices, the company reported.
