Whilst there may be a perception of some European animosity toward the UK over Brexit, there was no sign of it on the Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC) stand at EMO 2019. Making its EMO debut, the Tamworth cutting tool manufacturer demonstrated to the European audience at EMO why ITC is a leading brand in the UK. Show visitors certainly admired the innovations on Stand F47 in Hall 005 with significant enquiry and order numbers resulting from ITC’s first venture to Hannover.
Already boasting an extensive European footprint with distributors on the continent, ITC was also aiming to use the show as a launchpad to expand its pan-European distributor base, a goal that was achieved with a high number of reputable agents and distributors keen to have the UK brand as part of their portfolios.
ITC’s latest trochoidal milling innovations have gone down a storm in the UK among the high-tech aerospace, motorsport, mould & die and general engineering industries and this also proved the case at EMO. All manner of manufacturers from OEMs through to small subcontract manufacturers were thoroughly impressed by the innovation and technology on show from the Tamworth manufacturer.
Of particular interest was the company’s Cupro coated harmonic flute geometry 5021 Series of 5-flute end mills as well as the new 5031 Series stub length square-end tools that recently made a debut in ITC’s 2019 (Issue 14) product catalogue. From the 6-flute trochoidal milling stable, ITC demonstrated the impressive new 6051
Series of square-end or multiple corner radii tools that were supported by the 6011-F, 6021-F and 6031-F that all attracted keen interest at Europe’s showpiece manufacturing event.
The diversity of the product portfolio demonstrated at EMO also impressed stand visitors with an all-encompassing suite of milling tools that included everything from square, ball nose and radius tools of unfathomable dimension, geometry and coating choices. Additionally, the exceptional variety of chamfer tools, countersink, thread milling, drilling and reaming products provided a balanced solution for all industry sectors; a factor that attracted the European manufacturers at the show.
