CE Tooling Shop Tour on May 31 w/ Social Meeting At Big Dog’s Draft House

Meet us for a tour of CE Tooling‘s facilities at 5pm on May 31 (2560 W. Brooks Ave., North Las Vegas).  Immediately afterward we will be treating you to pizza, appetizers, and the first drink at Big Dog’s Draft House (4543 North Rancho Drive, Las Vegas, 702-645-1404).  Please bring a guest.

CE Tooling is a hidden treasure of high-tech manufacturing located right here in the Las Vegas Valley.  They make tools and  accessories for other industrial manufacturer’s around the world.  This tour will be a great way to gain new insight into several metal working operations you have probably never seen in person.  The highlight of the tour will probably be their Wire and Sinker EDM machines – very cool tech.  Of course they also have one of the largest machine shops in Nevada to go along with their numerous EDM’s.

RSVP is not required, but please send a message to Bill Bruninga (bill@adv-en.com) if you intend to attend to help us get a general head count. Guests are welcome and encouraged.
