Los Angeles, April 15, 2016 SMTCL-Americas held a 2-Day Open House Event in their City of Industry Technical Center on March 23rd and 24th. The theme of the Open House was “Heavy Metal” and featured 8 machine-cutting demonstrations. Attendees were given “SMTCL Heavy Metal” T-Shirts, Hats, and Portable Mobile Phone Chargers. Lunch, Snacks, and Beverages were also served each day of the Open House.
The event, which was attended by over 200 people, included seminars on “New Breakthroughs in Tooling Technology”, “High Speed Machining”, “Reducing Cycle Time with High Pressure Coolant”, “How to get the most out of your CNC Control”, and “New ways to automate your Machine Tool”.
Technology companies that joined the event and displayed products included ChipBlaster, Kennametal, Siemens, Fanuc, SurfCam, Detron, and VersaBuilt. Cal-Poly Pomona’s Society of Automotive Engineers racing team also brought both their Baja car and their Formula Car to demonstrate how they use SMTCL’s CNC Technology.
SMTCL’s Chief Operating Officer, Jerry McCarty, stated “These events are great in that I get to spend some time with our Customers and they can see new developments in our industry. It is rare that a customer can come into one facility and see CNC Boring Mills, CNC Horizontal Lathes, Vertical Machining Centers, Tapping Centers, Radial Drills, and Engine Lathes all under one roof”. McCarty also added, “This is also a great opportunity for our quality control guys and service personnel to meet Customers that may not have interacted with before. The SMTCL Team uses this event to both thank our existing customers and meet potential customers.”
