Knuth opens new demo facility
- February 24, 2015
The facility is currently set up with laser and plasma machines, and has plans to install a five axis water jet machine later in the year.
“Our goal in opening this showroom is to offer our customers the right technology, solution, and machine for their cutting needs,” says Daniel Maerklin, Knuth USA president. A customer can come to Knuth with a part that needs to be cut and an application engineer will provide cycle times and cutting results for the part on the different technologies - whether that is a laser, plasma, or waterjet. “Armed with all of this information our customers can then make the best decision for their individual needs. We are the only company in the country that will be able to demonstrate all three technologies."
Customers outside the Chicago area are also invited to take advantage of this new showroom.
The specific machines featured in the new showroom are German-made Laser-Jet 2512, a 2 kw fiber laser with a 1.2 x 2.4 m (4 x 8 ft) cutting table; a Plasma-Jet 1530 with a HPR 130XD plasma source, and the Hydro-Jet Eco 1313.
