Endres Machining Innovations (EMI) was founded in 2005 to develop and commercialize game-changing new technologies in the cutting-tool industry. Complementing EMI’s industry-leading R&D is an offering of engineering services, including knowledge-transfer, application development, and machinability testing, all of which support a customer’s efforts to reduce cost, improve quality, and reduce time to market. Through its R&D programs and commercialization partnerships, EMI is developing and delivering innovative tooling products that are providing substantial productivity improvements to manufacturers the world over. These technologies stand out in high-value, difficult-to- machine materials like titanium, nickel alloys, stainless steels, compacted-graphite iron (CGI), hardened steel, and highly-abrasive materials like composites. Current R&D is addressing other challenging materials and applications involving universal chip breaking, energy efficient chipping and chopping of cellulosic biomass, and conformable storage of CNG.
