Star Cutter expands grinding business with Tru Tech acquisition


Star Cutter Company has acquired Tru Tech CNC grinding systems from Resonetics (Nashua, New Hampshire), assuming all design and manufacturing of the Tru Tech high-precision CNC grinding machines currently performed at the Michigan facilities in Mt. Clemens and Lewiston. Additionally, Star Cutter secures the service, training, and spare parts support for Tru Techs’ vast installation base across North America and Europe.

“Tru Tech is a strategic purchase that perfectly complements our existing business,” said Brad Lawton, Star Cutter Company chairman and CEO. “It expands our technology offering to address earlier operations in the tool grinding process. New capability in blank preparation and cylindrical grinding, as well as Tru Tech’s large install base, will create synergies with Star Cutter Company’s existing business units. This is a true win-win that benefits both our company and, most importantly, our customers.”

A key differentiator of the Tru Tech systems is their ease of use and ultrafast set-up while delivering great accuracy and repetitive results. Tru Tech’s Perimetric™ grinding technology and CNC Pick-N-Place™ software enable these machines to achieve extremely high accuracy suited for high precision and micro components in the medical, aerospace, electronics, and other industries. These systems are also capable of handling diverse needs from one-piece, small lot runs through lights-out production.
