The new facility in Mississauga, ON, is designed to showcase the technologies Machine Tool Systems and its respective principles offer industry, from EDM and high speed milling technologies to grinding and additive manufacturing.
The 465 sq m (15,000 sq ft) facility will serve as a demonstration site for manufacturers. On-hand inventory includes GF AgieCharmillles wire and die sinking EDM machines, a GF Mikron milling machine and a surface grinder.
