Corey Koepnick of BadassMachinists and Aeroknox at IMTS 2018 with MakingChips

Corey Koepnick

Owner and Operator of BadassMachinists and Aeroknox

My name is Corey Koepnick and I am from Austin, Texas. I am the owner and operator of BadassMachinists and Aeroknox. I am a one man operation, and have been open now for 1 year. With Aeroknox, I specialize in high end, unique weapons designs, and you will soon see some of my work popping up on the big screen in a few big movies coming soon. On the Badassmachinists side, I built a social platform to give exposure to great machinists around the world. Displaying their work and sharing tips and tricks for better manufacturing/machining. 100% organically grown, we have become the largest machining page on the planet, and still growing rapidly. My goal is to shed a positive, and “cool” light on the machining industry. Giving other machinists and future machinists a platform to hone their skills and show off their work.
