CMS North America will be holding an Open House from June 24 to 26, 2004, at its headquarters in Caledonia, MI. “This year's event can best be described as a personal trade show, featuring one-on-one attention in a relaxed, informal setting,” the company stated. Attendees will have the opportunity to preview the latest CNC multifunction centers from CMS/Brembana of Italy. Equipment on display at the Open House will include CNC multifunction machines, fully automatic CNC bridge saws with .DXF file import capability, standard bridge saws with laser template placement system and latest waterjet machines.

State-of-the-art software will also be showcased in an innovative virtual interactive processing program. This university level presentation aims to “demystify” the complex interaction between programming and processing. Attendees will have the opportunity to program any function, including drilling, milling, profiling, polishing, surfacing, writing, carving and three-dimensional functions. They can view the entire process through animated software simulation.

The flexible scheduling will allow time for impromptu profit building discussions as well as the opportunity for stone industry leaders to meet one another. Accommodations and meals will be provided.
