SHOP TALK MMS OCTOBER 2018 54 Industry News Partnership between Boeing Portland and Haimer Intensifies The Oregon Manufacturing Innovation Center (OMIC) R&D continues to grow its membership base with the addition of Haimer. Now, with a total of 17 manufacturing industry partners and three Oregon public universities, the Scappoose, Oregon, R&D facility continues an operation intended to develop advanced metals manufac- turing technologies through its collaborative research and development activities. Through this partnership, Boeing—with its center of excellence and main production plant for heavy metal machining in Portland, Oregon—is intensifying its strategic partnership with Haimer by sponsoring a joint membership at OMIC R&D. The partnership reaches back more than 10 years to when Boeing adopted Haimer's Safe-Lock pullout protection system, which has since become the Boeing standard for roughing in mill- ing operations. "Boeing is very carefully vetting and inviting members to partner up and contribute to OMIC R&D," says William Gerry, Global Technology pro- gram manager for Boeing Research and Technology. "We are delighted about the new membership of Haimer, which we know as a high-quality tool- holding, shrink-fitting, balancing and presetting technologies company that Boeing has relied on heavily and exclusively for this service." "We are proud and happy to be closely asso- ciated with Boeing as a leading aircraft manu- facturer and one of our biggest global customers," says Andreas Haimer, president of the Haimer Group. "The investment and membership at OMIC R&D is a clear commit- ment to the community, our customers and the entire manufacturing industry in Oregon, the Pacific Northwest and American manufacturing." | Boeing | 312-544-2000 | Haimer USA 630-833-1500 Mastercam Sponsors National Robotics League CNC Software Inc.
