On December 5th, 2019, General Kinematics opened its doors to the public. Visiting customers, media partners, and members of the community traveled to General Kinematics headquarters to attend this event. During their visit, guests saw the behind the scenes process of building the World’s largest vibratory equipment.  The star of the show was a unit bound for a premier Wisconsin foundry. The running 125,000 pound VIBRA-DRUM® highlighted just how important vibratory equipment is to the foundry process. Attendees were given guided tours by General Kinematics’ Engineers through the manufacturing space ending the tour in the research and development laboratory. All guests were then given a chance to view developing technologies as well as equipment currently being fabricated, including High Stroke Feeders, VIBRA-DRUM® Sand and Casting Conditioner, and the SPIRA-COOL™ Casting Cooling Spiral among other machines in various stages of production.

Visitors left with a new perspective and understanding of how General Kinematics’ innovations serve multiple industries.
