About 150 visitors reportedly came to Bickenbach not long ago in order to thoroughly acquaint themselves with the Haas CNC machining centres available through Katzenmeier Maschinen-Service GmbH, the Haas Factory Outlet supplying customers in western Germany.
In Katzenmeier’s remodelled showroom, visitors to the open house were able to get close to turning and milling machines in live operation. Haas Automation, a US CNC-machine manufacturer based in California, produces vertical and horizontal machining centres, lathes, turning machines, high-speed and 5-axis machining centres and milling-turning machines, all CNC controlled.

The motto of the event was “metal cutting meets the American lifestyle”, and visitors’ expectations were fulfilled. Not only was the culinary aspect of the exhibition as American as the machinery, but Harley-Davidson motorcycles were on exhibit. Every day of the event, someone was able to win a “Harley-Davidson Weekend”.
The new Katzenmeier partner Sodick Deutschland participated as well, presenting on the side the new AQ400L series of compact wire-cutting electrical discharge machines with linear-drive motors in all 4 axes. Visitors additionally could obtain information about the Schunk line of work- and toolholding products.
General Manager Bernd Katzenmeier was very pleased with the event. “The in-house exhibition was a thorough success for us, and the conversations have shown very promising projects.”
The Haas Factory Outlet of Katzenmeier serves customers in the German federal states of Hessen, Saarland, Rhineland-Palatinate and northern Baden-Württemberg.
