Year in Review: Have you seen the new look for the GROB company website?

Today's, post was very popular from back on March 4th about Grob's new website- Check it out

The new GROB homepage has been online since the beginning of September. We have spoken to the GROB Marketing Manager, Ms. Marion Immerz, about the reasons for the revamp and the importance of electronic media for GROB.

Ms. Immerz, as GROB went online with a completely new homepage in 2012, it was one of the trendiest websites in the "Tool and mechanical engineering" sector. What are your aspirations now for the new website?

Marion Immerz: Of course, we have set ourselves ambitious goals with the relaunch. We very much wanted the homepage to have a modern and graphically complex design again. Most importantly, we want to increase the visitor numbers to our website through a more attractive presentation of the topics and simple user guidance.

Also, our products and the current topics at GROB should become even more prominent, so that those visiting the website can find the information they want in various ways.

What were the goals for the website relaunch?

As well as modernizing the design by enhancing the graphic and image elements, the focus was very much on making technical improvements. This included the responsive adapting of all content and the perfect display on all browsers and devices. We also wanted to offer our visitors various ways to inform themselfes about the GROB product range. The loading time, security and accessibility of the homepage were also optimized. We hope that all these measures will improve usability and dwell time, increase visitor numbers and create a more powerful presentation compared to the competitors. From a company perspective, it was also about improving the way the future corporate identity is depicted.

What's new about the 2018 GROB website?

The modern design and a generous text/image language stand out immediately, of course. Alongside these design elements, it was especially important for us to highlight the new developments and changes within our company and to its products. When we went online in 2012 for example, topics such as Industry 4.0, digitalization or electromobility were rather like peripheral issues in our company. This already changed dramatically at GROB a few years ago. Today, these topics stand alongside the traditional system and universal machining center business as key topics and were finally given the recognition they deserve when the homepage was relaunched.

Which is the main target group you want to reach with the GROB homepage?

Our target group is widely spread. Of course, we are focusing on our customers, both repeat as well as new customers from the various sectors. Through our homepage, we would also like to reach applicants, banks and also our own employees and report on the latest developments in our company.

You also mentioned applicants. What is the online application procedure like at GROB?

Our "Career" section takes you directly to our current job vacancies, sorted by the GROB sites worldwide. Depending on the site, the potential candidates are shown vacancies sub-divided into company areas. The job is directly linked to the applicant portal, allowing the potential applicants to upload their application directly to our Human Resources department, which guarantees quick processing of the application documents.

What are the other highlights of the new GROB homepage?

Other highlights of the new GROB homepage are our landing pages on each product with their detailed, technical information, application examples, animations and films. The overview of all services, from 24/7 support, material supply, machine inspections through to customer training is also interesting. In the "News" section, we report on the latest developments at GROB. There is now also an intuitive site search with detailed contact information and directions.

Which social media does GROB use and how important are they for the company?

GROB concentrates on the most important social media for the industry such as YouTube, WeChat and the IndustryArena platform. Interested parties can find the latest machining videos, machine information and news articles on the company. The platforms also offer the chance to link information to our website to achieve a broader reach.

Which other electronic media does GROB use?

In fall last year, the new GROB4Care webshop went online at the EMO. This webshop provides GROB customers with parts lists and drawings, as well as customer-specific information such as the current availability of spare parts at the GROB sites. This webshop is also linked to our new GROB website so that the customer can reach all media centrally via our homepage.

FABTECH- LISSMAC Booth: A5705

LISSMAC systems for metal processing set benchmarks in innovative sheet metal processing through highly-effective, two-sided deburring and edge rounding of punched, laser and fine plasma cut workpieces using only one work process. Unlike grinding machines, SBM-L G1S2s win over customers with more efficient processing work savings of up to 60%.

Both sides - One work step

The innovation – In the dry processing method, the highly efficient double-sided processing of all cut contours (outside and inside contours) on sheets is done in only one work process. Double-sided synchronous processing offers highest productivity in the production process of our customers. The processing principle of LISSMAC systems guarantees across the entire working with optimal tool utilization because the processing of the workpiece is always crossways to the feed direction.

These series differ in the number of assemblies for workpiece processing.

  • Deburring and edge rounding of parts up to 50 mm material thickness
  • Removal of spots on the sheet metal surface
  • Processing both sides of the parts simultaneously eliminates the need of turning heavy parts and processing them for a second time
  • Simultaneous deburring and edge rounding of interior and exterior contours
  • Dry operation
  • Simple, intuitive operation
  • The processing units can be individually adjusted or turned on and off electrically.
  • Maximum productivity while maintaining machining quality

SHOW PREVIEW: Premier Post- Show Edition 2019

Customers want partnerships with their machine distributors, NOT fancy sales pitches.

Customers today have less time to be dealing with machinery salespeople, but they are more knowledgeable because of all they can learn from the internet. What customers ultimately want is a partnership! Chris Bell wrote a book called “Customers as Partners” that states, “effective partnerships can keep customers returning, through thick and thin, for better or worse, in good times and in bad.” Effective customer partnerships have qualities that can ensure their success. These are qualities the service provider must initiate, demonstrate, or replicate. While the concept of customer partnership generally implies a long-standing relationship, the feeling of partnership may be created in short-term relationships.

So, when I say customers want partnerships and not fancy sales pitches. For years I have observed many companies with fancy pitches trying to woo customers. At Premier, we have looked for and been most successful with our customers who are demanding, tough and fair. These customers want a partnership that works for them and when it does, they will work for us too. With our customers, we both don’t keep score, as we both know what is at stake and we take care of each other. We have a partnership with our customers, and we respect the relationship and work to exceed all their expectations.

When selecting a machine tool distributor to work with some customers select them by the brands they carry or by who the distributor is. But others want more from their distributor and they accept the treatment they receive as just the cost of doing business. Our customers are discovering Premier Machine Tool Midwest is providing MORE. They want more quality, better service and better machines and that is exactly what Premier provides. If you demand MORE, MORE accuracy, MORE productivity, MORE production and FASTER service and MORE support, then you should be contacting Premier Machine Tool Midwest.

We have been successful because customers that demand MORE are receiving MORE! We excel with the customers who deserve more, and our machines demand it. We are very selective of the companies we represent. What I mean by that is we demand them to have facilities in the United States and not be brought in by a professional importer who could lose or drop the line at any time and leave you, the customer, vulnerable. We demand more of them and this is due to us having a partnership with you and making sure we take care of the relationship. Some people may not care about this, but we know from our customers that this is a huge issue for them.

We invite you to stop in and help Premier Machine Tool celebrate our 8th anniversary at the Wisconsin Mfg. & Technology show in BOOTH #211. Let us help you discover more about the equipment we represent and more importantly about the people of Premier and how we start new partnerships and what you can gain from this type of relationship.

Sincerely

A.J.

SHOW PREVIEW: New High-Speed Compact VMC from Hwacheon makes it North American debut in booth #211 at the Wisconsin Mfg. & Technology Show Oct 8th-10th. Come check out the NEW Hwacheon UM+ VMC which will out spec and out preform the competition!

The HWACHEON SIRIUS-UM+ is a high precision vertical machining center (VMC) equipped with a wide se-lection of built-in motor spindle options ranging from 20,000 RPM to 45,000 RPM. With travels of 29.53” x 19.69” x 17.72”, the SIRIUS-UM+ has a competitive advantage in high precision applications. “The very compact design of the machine, high accuracy and superb machining performances have made the HWACHEON SIRIUS-UM+ a highly anticipated machine within the high precision, parts and tooling industries,” said a Hwacheon spokesperson. The HWACHEON SIRIUS-UM+ is designed using 3D simulation and FEM analysis to achieve structural rigidity. The insulated machine frame is a rigid bilateral gate structure that firmly supports the X-axis drive and diverts load, vibration and heat from the upper section of the machine evenly throughout the frame. Equip-ped with an insulated detachable cover, vibration is isolated under the coil conveyor for quieter machining. “These features help keep the feed drive stable after hours of operation. Additionally, the short distance be-tween the X-axis drive and the tool’s point of contact is a plus for maintaining rigidity and for enhancing machining precision,” continued the spokes- person. The high-performance spindle integrates with Hwacheon’s patented oil-jet lubrication technology to provide consistent quality results after hours of operation. The oil-jet cooling and lubrication system injects a jet of oil directly onto the spindle bearing for effective cooling. The motor and spindle assembly are jacket cooled to limit displacement caused by heat. More notable upgrades are the spindle motor power, which has increased on the SIR-IUS-UM+ to 37/18.5 kW from 18.5/11 kW; the 30-tool magazine holder; and the high-rigid, symmetric machine structure. Hwacheon-designed machining software components monitor different variables related to the work environment and machining conditions, then make adjustments for best quality results and optimum machining efficiency. This software was specifically developed to increase thermal accuracy and machining performances to the highest level.

HWACHEON SIRIUS-UM+ features:

HTLD—Hwacheon’s Tool Load Detect provides real time measurement of tool load ensuring consistent and safe machining. HTLD constantly monitors tool damage and deterioration for prevention of complete tool failure causing workpiece damage. To ensure accuracy and performance, HTLD measures tool load every 8 msecs.

HECC—Hwacheon’s High-Efficiency Contour Control System offers an easy to use programming interface system that provides a precise, custom contour control for the selected work-piece engineered to prolong ma-chine life and decrease process time. HECC offers different options for cut-ting speed and accuracy, and for surface finish and geometry. The customizable display pro-vides real-time monitoring and quick, easy access. HECC may be used with existing NC data systems and is compatible with G-code programming.

OPTIMA—Hwacheon Cutting Feed Optimization System utilizes an adaptive control method to regulate the feedrate in real time to sustain a consistent cutting load while machining. “As a result, cutting tools are less prone to damage and machining time is reduced,” said the spokesperson. OPTIMA controls the feed velocity to maintain consistent cutting load. Features provided with OPTIMA include a graphic display of tool load and feedrate, convenient operation using G-code programming, and a number of data sets for specific tool and process control. To provide high productivity, OPTIMA operates in conjunction with HTLD.

HFDC—Hwacheon Frame Displacement Control System is equipped with highly sensitive thermal sensors mounted at various locations in the machine castings where thermal dis-placement is possible. HFDC monitors and corrects detected thermal displacement.

HTDC—Hwacheon Thermal Dis-placement Control system integrates the Hwacheon Spindle Displacement Control system and the Frame Dis-placement Control system.

HSDC—Hwacheon Spindle Dis-placement Control System—As a spindle rotates at high speed, centrifugal forces and heat expand the spindle taper, causing error in the Z-axis. HSDC constantly monitors temperature at a number of points within the spindle assembly predicting thermal displacement. The HSDC system then makes necessary adjustments and effectively minimizes thermal displacement, correcting Z-axis error occurring from taper expansion as the spindle rotates at high speed.

“The HWACHEON SIRIUS-UM+ with its Optimal Machining System delivers a total production method from tool selection to final product and has proven to be the perfect choice for high precision applications of various kinds and materials,” said the spokesperson.

Premier is proud to continue our strong relationship with Hwacheon to offer all their great products exclusively to our Wisconsin partners.
