On May 18, 2018, Blum – Novotest GmbH and Brother Industries co-hosted a private show, named “Bloom On-machine Measurement Exhibition”. The event
was held at the Kariya showroom of Brother Industry in Kariya City, Aichi Prefecture in Japan.
Blum has held private shows in Tokyo and Osaka in the past, but due to a strong demand from attendees, the show was held in the Chubu area this time. A
total of 150 people attended.
Toru Yamada, president of Blum-Novotest Japan said, “we deal with measurement devices used on-machine, so we can expect good results from collaborating
with machine tool manufacturers. On-machine measurements are not well recognized by machine tool manufacturers and end users. We are happy to have
the opportunity to raise awareness for this.”
Osamu Hasegawa, general manager of Brother’s machinery division, commented on the great results he expects from the collaboration, “combining both
companies’ technologies (1+1) will equal a final result greater than 2″.
Seven of Brother’s small machining centers “SPEEDIO” were displayed in the showroom. And all of them were fitted with Bloom’s instruments. Seminars were
also held on the merits of on-machine measurement and examples of introduction.
