Methods Chicago Technical Center Grand Opening August 26-27

Methods Machine Tools, Inc. is hosting a grand opening at its new Chicago Technical Center at 70 Prairie Parkway, Gilberts, IL. The open house is scheduled for August 26 and August 27 from 10 AM to 6 PM.

Methods' Chicago staff moved to the new technical center earlier this year to give Midwest customers faster installations, more capabilities and more responsive service calls.

"Now that the dust has settled on our move, we are excited to open up our doors and show the Midwest what we can do and our new capabilities," said Don Miller, General Manager of Methods' Chicago Technical Center. "We are excited to show everyone how our time-tested, industry-trusted knowledge can make machine shops more productive."

The grand opening will feature live CNC machine demonstrations to give visitors a broad but detailed overview of Methods' application engineering for turn-keys and world-class technology. The company will serve lunch and refreshments on both days.

"No matter what industry you support or the size of your shop, we will have something for you to sink your teeth into," said Zac Borost, Methods' Sales Manager for Illinois and Wisconsin.

Brands and machines featured during the grand opening include:

  • Nakamura-Tome: SC 300II, WY-150, NTY3-150 and NTY3-250
  • FANUC: six RoboDrills of various sizes, including the Plus-K automation cell, as well as the newest wire EDM machines, the a-CiC400 and a-CiC600
  • YASDA: PX30i equipped with 306 tools and an APC with 33 pallets for lights-out manufacturing
  • Methods machining centers: MV 1100H VMC and the MB 650U 5-axis machining center
  • KIWA: The company's newest horizontal machining centers, the KH-4100kai and KH-4500kai
  • OKK: VC-X350, a 5-axis machining center
  • Beamer: Laser-marking machines
  • Ocean Technologies: EDM hole popper.

The grand opening is a part of Methods' commitment to customers in the Midwest. Long-term goals include adding a parts depot to the existing facility, which will provide parts to many regional customers within four hours.
