To celebrate four years of partnership, Northamptonshire-based Master Abrasives
and Micromatic Grinding Technologies
have teamed up to give special discounts on grinding machines.
On offer until the end of August is a 10% discount on hydraulic-powered machines and a 15% discount on CNC grinding machines. Two machines are stocked and available for quick delivery from Master Abrasives’ facility: the eco 200 cylindrical grinder and the Pluto-18 CNC grinder.
Master Abrasives, the UK representatives of India-based Micromatic Grinding Technologies, introduced the range of cylindrical, centreless and special purpose machinery in 2016 to complete its line up of 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-size production batches. This model has the advantage of a small footprint, is cost-effective 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, which was looking for a cost-effective means to provide the in-house service of customised tooling.
Master Abrasives has also worked with Border Ballistics Technologies, which was increasing its production output of gunsmith tooling.
Meanwhile, a leading manufacturer of tooling components, Boneham and Turner, replaced two grinding machines with the eco 200 U and Cengar Air Saws installed a Micromatic grinding machine to produce parts for tools and improve delivery demands.
Paul Batson, Master Abrasives managing director, said: “Since this partnership began, we have passed many milestones in the company, including celebrating 50 years of trading, setting up a dedicated applications engineering team and starting our own video marketing initiative.
“We are delighted to be partnered with Micromatic which has 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 taking centre stage on its stand which received a lot of interest. At MACH 2021
, the company will be exhibiting an extended range of machines including the compact high-performance Pluto-18 CNC grinding machine.
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.
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
Mr Batson concluded: “We are confident that we can provide the best of precision grinding technology in one place and with our partner’s innovative products, our own range of Master precision grinding products and a dedicated, knowledgeable team to support customers, we are proud to offer a first-rate service and provide cost-effective solutions for industry.”
