General Kinematics is pleased to announce our Foundry Open House in October to thank the industry for helping us become a worldwide leader in vibratory process equipment, and to showcase the latest foundry equipment we are manufacturing.
Happening October 7th, 2014 at the GK Headquarters in Crystal Lake, the Open House will be a chance for VIP access to see behind the scenes of R&D and manufacturing at GK. Several brand new foundry units will be on display and the event will include tours, a presentation by GK’s Foundry Industry Manager, Claude Hutchens, refreshments and more.

And other vibratory equipment!
