We all look forward to turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce. Many of us make our list of thankfuls and share our blessings. Here at Xuron Corporation November reminds us of our humble beginnings and emphasizes the incredible growth we have developed over the years.
Who knew that 3D printing and Xuron® tools would go together so well? I didn’t until I visited the Maine Fab Lab and saw the 3D printing process in action and learned exactly how helpful a Xuron® Model 170-II Micro-Shear® Flush Cutter and a Model 450 TweezerNose™ Pliers can be for a variety of tasks.

It’s officially summer and for some of us that means creative projects get put on the back burner and beach trips are the focus. At least this is true for me! I am currently in the process of moving and clearing out my old home office/ studio. It is simultaneously the best and worst feeling. Organizing and sorting my bead hoard is exciting; I am finding so many awesome components and supplies that I completely forgot about. However it is also one of the most daunting, unending tasks I’ve ever tackled. Too many tiny messy things! As I am slogging through the debris at home, here at Xuron lots of progress is being made. We have been brainstorming and testing new prototypes; definitely one of my favorite parts of the job!
