Machine tool operator, Haimer has strengthened its commercial partnership with DMG Mori, will become their premium partner and has acquired Microset GmBH.

The cooperation agreement means that DMG Mori will purchase all products related to tool pre-setting, balancing and shrinking including shrink fit holders as well Tool Rooms exclusively from Haimer.

The agreement also means that DMG Mori will continue to display Haimer Microset products during exhibitions that they will continue to distribute these products through their worldwide sales and service companies.

According to the company, DMG Mori’s Microset Tool-Presetting Technology complements its existing product portfolio. In addition to high-precision tool holders in all popular interfaces and lengths, the current product portfolio includes a variety of shrinking and balancing machines.

Haimer chief executive officer Claudia Haimer said that the company’s operations will change somewhat with the new acquisition.

“Since the company location of Haimer Microset GmbH with about 35 employees will remain in Bielefeld, Germany, this will be our second HAIMER production site, including our main headquarters in Igenhausen, Augsburg, Germany,” Haimer said.

“The Bielefeld facility will be further expanded to become our Northern Germany sales and marketing hub, where we will be able to present the complete process chain that surrounds the machine tool to current and prospective customers.”
