Transor moves to larger facility

Transor CEO Irvin Kaage announced the company’s move to a new facility.  

“Over the years we have expanded several times,” stated Kaage, “and this new expanded 35,000 square foot facility in Arlington Heights, Illinois, will enable us to increase production and inventory to meet the growing demands for Transor units with OMF (One Micron Filtration).” 

The new home is an additional 35% larger than their previous facility and easily accommodates all administrative, production and service personnel, he said.

“As manufacturers of carbide cutting tools, circular saw blades and PCD tools, along with our initial EDM market, have discovered how OMF significantly impacts their operation,” stated Kaage, “their demand for our filters required us to have additional space for assembly, testing and inventory as well as expanded R&D facilities for new Transor innovations currently in the works.”  

Kaage also noted that with the success of Transor’s modular, expandable V-Series, they now have the additional space for increasing their component inventory for the basic modules.

  • circular saw

    circular saw

    Cutoff machine utilizing a circular blade with serrated teeth. See saw, sawing machine.

  • electrical-discharge machining ( EDM)

    electrical-discharge machining ( EDM)

    Process that vaporizes conductive materials by controlled application of pulsed electrical current that flows between a workpiece and electrode (tool) in a dielectric fluid. Permits machining shapes to tight accuracies without the internal stresses conventional machining often generates. Useful in diemaking.

  • micron


    Measure of length that is equal to one-millionth of a meter.

  • polycrystalline diamond ( PCD)

    polycrystalline diamond ( PCD)

    Cutting tool material consisting of natural or synthetic diamond crystals bonded together under high pressure at elevated temperatures. PCD is available as a tip brazed to a carbide insert carrier. Used for machining nonferrous alloys and nonmetallic materials at high cutting speeds.

  • sawing machine ( saw)

    sawing machine ( saw)

    Machine designed to use a serrated-tooth blade to cut metal or other material. Comes in a wide variety of styles but takes one of four basic forms: hacksaw (a simple, rugged machine that uses a reciprocating motion to part metal or other material); cold or circular saw (powers a circular blade that cuts structural materials); bandsaw (runs an endless band; the two basic types are cutoff and contour band machines, which cut intricate contours and shapes); and abrasive cutoff saw (similar in appearance to the cold saw, but uses an abrasive disc that rotates at high speeds rather than a blade with serrated teeth).
