Quickgrind demonstrates the productivity benefits of a partnership approach

February 12, 2015 Leave a comment

A partnership between Southern Manufacturing exhibitor Quickgrind, TTL and VoluMill has, it’s claimed, cut milling cycle times by over 75% while retaining tool integrity and performance.

Quickgrind sees partnerships of this kind as another outcome of its ‘total solution engineering’ approach, as Managing Director Ross Howell explains: “To improve the profitability of a customer’s business we do much more than provide the right tools. We look at the whole picture from the customer’s point of view and come up with a total solution to meet the challenges we see. Often that solution involves teaming up with other companies and their complementary technologies.”
