Here at Swiss Precision Machining (SPM), we started our shop over 40 years ago with just two Swiss-style cam machines. Today, we boast over 70 Swiss-turn machines—in addition to state-of-the-art specialty machines made by another well-known supplier and innovator of precision machinery, Willemin-Macodel.
From the Willemin 408MT models to our newer acquisition, the Willemin 508MT2, discover what this relationship means to both Willemin-Macodel and SPM through the eyes of Willemin-Macodel USA’s Applications Manager Jim Davis.
2020 proved to be a challenging year for facility management, as many buildings and parking structures were shut down for extended periods of time, and countless events were postponed, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As positive case numbers go down and the number of vaccinated people goes up, the world has begun to slowly resume its usual routine once more. Learn what this means for facility managers, including what trends you can anticipate in facility management during 2021, and how Wahlen Works is here to help.
We’re positive there are days where you’d love to grab your bike and just hit the road alone. After a long day of work or on a sunny Saturday morning, a solo ride certainly holds appeal. It’s always better, however, to ride together with at least one other person—safer, smarter, and more responsible. Here’s why you should grab your favorite riding buddy (or group!) before heading out on your bike.
Those from the Midwest—or who have lived here long enough—know, there are only two seasons in this part of the country: winter and construction. Once all the snow has melted and the warmer weather is here to stay, construction season begins, including road repair.
Both old and new builds will be keeping Wahlen Works plenty busy in 2021, but here’s some more information on what types of new construction you can expect in and around Milwaukee this year.
What is Three Kings’ Day? And what’s for breakfast? Homemade roscón de reyes to celebrate Epiphany like a Spaniard away from home
‘Tis the season of sweets, and baking is one of my favorite hobbies. But I live alone, so there’s no one to easily pawn homemade goods off on, which means I often end up forgoing a recipe to not be wasteful (nor overindulge myself). In the absence of holiday get-togethers this year, micro-sized recipes are the real MVP, allowing me to get a taste of a traditional Spanish holiday recipe—for a roscón (o rosca) de reyes—that I picked up while living in Spain.
You might be as far away as another country or as close as the same city and still not get to see your family and friends during the holidays this year—a harsh reality that no one could have predicted pre-pandemic. It’s already been too much alone time, even for folks with an introverted streak like myself, so I get it if you’re feeling emotional about forgoing your normal holiday plans.
For at least two decades now, November has been recognized as National Family Caregivers Month in the U.S.—a time to honor the estimated 53 million caregivers assisting family, friends, and neighbors with chronic conditions and diseases across the country. This month-long celebration was created to raise awareness of family caregiver issues, honor the efforts of caregivers, educate caregivers about how to self-identify, and increase support for caregivers...
To raise awareness about and eliminate period poverty and menstruation stigma, a youth-led nonprofit organization, called Period, celebrates the second annual National Period Day in the U.S on Oct. 10, 2020. This year’s event, Period Action Day 2020, is virtual and will highlight “the work of menstrual justice activists and [empower] youth with resources and tools to make a change in their own communities.”
Today is World Sight Day—a global event to raise awareness for blindness and vision impairment—which happens on the second Thursday of October each year. Originally started by the Lions Club International Foundation, the event is hosted by the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB). This year’s theme is #HopeInSight to advocate for universal eye care coverage.
When you’re learning a new language, hitting the books and studying (memorizing) hard is the standard approach. But what about when you find yourself in a casual conversation with an acquaintance or friend? Carrying a textbook in your back pocket sounds heavy and generally useless for anything other than formal verb conjugations. We’ve got a few phrases up our sleeve to make sure you’re more comfortable in relaxed, everyday scenarios—and sounding like a native Spanish speaker.
Whether or not America was ready for me again, the time had come. I made the decision to move back to the U.S. months prior, but it was time to put the pedal to the metal upon arriving back to Spain after my trip home to Wisconsin for Christmas. With exactly three weeks and a day to pack up whatever I wanted to bring with me and wrap up all my loose ends, I would have never been able to do it without heavily utilizing the Notes app on my phone to create a hefty to-do list with things to tackl...
Human beings, generally speaking, have an obsession with knowing how to say “bad” or “dirty” things in another language. Odd as it may be, who are we to deprive you of the knowledge you so desperately crave? In many languages, the swear words native to them are an important part of the local lexicon, adding emphasis and flavor to otherwise normal sentences.
I never thought I’d move back to the U.S. I guess living in Europe for almost eight years will do that to a person. I’ve lost track of the times I confidently and without hesitation said, “I’m sorry, but I just can’t picture it,” when friends or family asked if I thought I’d ever go back to the States. The quality of life I discovered in Spain and the experiences and exposure to so many new things that I was having in Europe turned me pretty anti-living in America, despite the U.S. being home.
