To celebrate four years of partnership, Master Abrasives and Micromatic Grinding Technologies have teamed up to offer special discounts on grinding machines.
In this celebratory special offer for UK customers, the company is giving 10% discount on hydraulic-powered machinery and 15% discount on CNC grinding machines from 20th July to 31st August 2020. Two machines are stocked and available for quick delivery from Master Abrasives’ facility in Northamptonshire: the eco 200 cylindrical grinder and the PLUTO-18 CNC grinder.
As the UK representatives of Micromatic Grinding Technologies, Master Abrasives introduced their cylindrical, centreless and special purpose machinery in 2016 to complete their solutions for precision grinding applications. The first machine installed in Master Abrasives demonstration area was an eco 200 grinding machine, a cylindrical grinding machine ideal for small precision components up to 200mm diameter in low to medium production batches. This model has the advantage of a small footprint, is low cost and can hold tight tolerances.
Fast forward to now, Micromatic grinding machines are operating in many engineering firms throughout the country. The eco 200 was the first machine to be installed at Earlsdon Technology, who were looking for a cost-effective means to provide the in-house service of customised tooling. Master Abrasives has also worked with Border Ballistics Technologies, who were increasing their production output of gunsmith tooling. A leading manufacturer of tooling components, Boneham and Turner, replaced two grinding machines with the eco 200 U as they celebrated their centenary year. Cengar Air Saws production department introduced their Micromatic grinding machine to produce parts for tools and improve delivery demands.
Paul Batson, managing director, commented: “Since this partnership began, we’ve seen many milestones in the company. We have celebrated 50 years of trading, set up a dedicated applications engineering team and started our own initiative in video marketing. We’re delighted to be partnered with Micromatic who have similar plans for growth and an excellent reputation for their social responsibility activities, especially in recent times with their efforts to support their local customers and community.”
At MACH 2018, Master Abrasives exhibited for the first time in several years with the Micromatic eco 200 machine in the spotlight on their stand. The event was key to increasing awareness of the new name of machinery available to the UK and it led to new opportunities. Therefore, at MACH 2021, they will be exhibiting an extended range of machinery with the CNC machine, PLUTO-18, as the highlight. This machine focuses on compactness and high-performance.
After a successful machinery launch in the UK and the establishment of Master Abrasives Polska, in 2019, the company was appointed representative for Micromatic Grinding Technologies in Poland. National sales manager, Slawomir Klisiewicz, offers full support for applications and has many years’ experience in the abrasives industry.
Other future plans include producing videos to show the machines in operation at Master Abrasives facility. Further videos filmed by the Micromatic Grinding Technologies team are already available to view on Master Abrasives’ YouTube channel.
Paul concludes: “We’re confident that we can provide the best of precision grinding technology in one place. With our partner’s innovative products, our own range of Master precision grinding products and a dedicated, knowledgeable team to support customers, we’re proud to offer a first-rate service and provide solutions for industry.”
