Farmington Hills, Mich., April 29, 2021 – Recent upgrades by Star Cutter Company to its Elk Rapids, Mich., facility, where it produces tool and broach grinders, include a complete modernization of the 25,000 sq. ft. climate-controlled building featuring state-of-the-art workspaces and conference room with virtual meeting capability. Importantly, a 1,500 sq. ft. area has been created on the plant floor that is dedicated to customer run-offs and demonstrations with space for two machines at any time. Video and remote demonstrations and run-offs are also available.
For companies interested in visiting the facility, the demonstration grinders are NXT 5-axis tool grinders performing: 1) automated medical broach grinding with Esprit through the NUMROTO interface, and 2) automated round tool and insert grinding.
Star Cutter has maintained a northern Michigan presence since the mid-1960s, and this most recent facility upgrade confirms its ongoing investment in its local communities.
