During the event from May 9 to 11 at ZOLLER Inc.’s North American headquarters in Ann Arbor, Michigan, more than a dozen speakers, including several longtime customers, presented about how ZOLLER technology has connected their operations, improved efficiency and provided an edge over the competition.

“For us, the company DNA is always that we want to support our customer,” said ZOLLER Inc. President Alexander Zoller. “Our DNA is how we can support our customers to be more effective, to be more efficient, and to drive that forward.”

The theme of the event was “Accelerate. Success.” and each day focused on a topic that helps companies do just that. May 9 showcased new inspection technology, May 10 looked at how to implement and scale tool management and May 11 examined integrating the entire process chain of ZOLLER Solutions, from CAM to part.

Speaker Scott Volk, executive vice president and COO of MetalQuest Unlimited, said tool management is an important part of the future for the advanced CNC-based manufacturing company with locations in Nebraska and Idaho.

“Having a central location where all that (data) resides and it’s available to everybody at their fingertips whenever they need it and being able to exchange that data with other systems is very important for us moving forward,” Volk said.
