|NUM at IMTS 2012|
Booth # E-5135 in the East Building
|Better machine tool performance on offer by application-specific CNC specialist|
NUM Corporation is demonstrating its latest-generation CNC solutions for machining and tool grinding at this year’s International Manufacturing Technology Show. The company has a
large 1100 square feet booth at the show – it is celebrating 24 years of success in the USA – ways of enhancing the performance of machine tools and increasing brand identity are key highlights of NUM's booth at IMTS 2012. These attributes stem from the scalability and customization possibilities of the company's advanced Flexium CNC kernel. The company will also announce a large number of technical advances spanning its entire CNC range, from the CNC kernel and HMI, through its specialist drives and motors, to the company's well-known simulation software.
NUM is one of the only CNC companies in the world that is in a position to combine the flexibility of a scalable CNC system – such as its powerful Flexium CNC platform capable of controlling over 200 axes – with motors and drives that it develops and manufactures in-house. This capability, backed by extensive engineering resources, enables NUM to produce custom solutions for special purpose machine builders, as well as competitive standard products for high volume OEMs.
|The NUM exhibition booth – E-5135 – is located in the center of the Controls & CAD-CAM Pavilion, in the East Building. It will be manned throughout the 6-day event by professional engineering staff, who will be delighted to take the opportunity to discuss how NUM can help improve the performance of customers’ manufacturing machines.|

|After having celebrated its 50-year CNC-technology anniversary last year, the NUM Group held the ground-breaking ceremony for the new logistics and service centre for the NUM Group in Teufen on 20 August, 2012. The newly built centre is being constructed next door to company headquarters in Battenhusstrasse 16. This building was built by NUM in 1991, which also moved in the same year. The three-storey new building, with a floor space totalling 8009 m2, will be completed by the autumn of 2013. The investment volume totals around CHF 8 million. The new building will provide better working conditions for the new jobs created in 2008 and 2009, and will help optimise work processes. The existing logistics centre in Bühler will therefore be relocated to premises of its own in Teufen. By merging the two production locations, work and logistics processes can be standardised, allowing costs to be saved as well.|
The first sod was turned by the company Hörler Tiefbau AG, together with Mr. Peter von Rüti, president and CEO of the NUM Group and Mr. Klaus Rempfler, project manager and vice president of the NUM Group, which planned the entire construction process and will be monitoring the project together with the architect Mr. Jürg Stieger and Mr. Markus Pichler (site management) from the architectural agency Forrer Krebs Ley St. Gallen. The new building will be constructed according to the latest developments in energy-efficient construction. There are plans to realise the entire heating for the building using geothermal probes, extending down to a depth of at least 170 m. A photovoltaic array on the roof will also produce electricity. The planned capacity of the photovoltaic system totals around 70 kW, which will cover approx. 50% of the power required at the Teufen production site. The NUM Group has already installed a photovoltaic system boasting a capacity of 170 kW at its production site in Italy, providing further proof of the company's environmentally-friendly commitment. To keep the emissions from loading and unloading trucks to a minimum for local residents and visitors to the Paracelsus Clinic, and to ensure the space available is used optimally, the loading ramp was built on the south side of the premises, behind the existing NUM building. By setting the new building back from the street, the visual impression it makes fits in with the landscape and adjacent buildings very well.

|The IMTS 2010 has been completed with more than 1,700 companies from 30 countries displaying the products and service within the area advanced manufacturing technology, and with over 80000 visitors from more than 100 countries the show also has international importance.|
NUM Corporation was displaying the latest-generation CNC solutions, the Flexium system. Beside this the emphasis was on the tailored solutions from NUM, like NUMROTO and NUMgear as well as dedicated solutions for the US market within cylindrical grinding and spin forming.
|NUM Corporation also took the opportunity to make the positive transition of the NTC management from Ralph Fernandez to Steven Schilling. Ralph has been heading up NUM in the US from the start 22 years ago and under his management the company has won a reputation as a strong partner both in competitive and high performance hardware as well as a full engineering provider for the OEM and retrofit market in North America. Although Ralph will be retiring NUM has been able to convince him to do consultancy work over the coming years. |
The NUM exhibition booth was manned throughout the 6-day event by both local and international engineering staff, and many interesting new opportunities were discussed in connection with the show with both existing and new potential customers and partners. Also the fact that NUM had many international visitors at the booth interesting in our flexible CNC solutions was very positive.
So the participation at the IMTS 2010 by far exceeded our expectations prior to the show.
