Absolute Machine Tools Grows Integrated Systems and Engineered Solutions Services
Absolute Machine Tools, Inc. has steadily expanded the selection of advanced machine tools it offers.
Shrinking availability of skilled labor and continual cost-reduction pressures are magnifying the importance of manufacturing systems, services and integrated solutions, according to machine tool importer and distributor Absolute Machine Tools, Inc. (Lorain, OH). During more than three decades of selling and supporting a comprehensive selection of machine tools, Absolute has participated in wide-ranging changes in the manufacturing industry. The company concludes that manufacturing success and growth now require engineered solutions that integrate machine tools with automation systems, process design and maintenance services.
Consequently, Absolute offers extensive assistance in engineering and building custom-tailored automation, robotics and turnkey machining systems aimed at reducing manufacturing costs and compensating for shortages of skilled labor. Preventative maintenance packages are designed to match a shop’s individual budget requirements, and Absolute’s technicians provide specialized service solutions such laser-assisted level and square machine alignment, ballbar circularity inspection, tram testing and CNC servo tuning.
Absolute has steadily expanded the selection of advanced machine tools it offers, now including horizontal and vertical machining centers, duplex/double sided machining centers, horizontal and vertical lathes and mill/turn centers, Swiss-type lathes and multi-slide screw machines, deep hole drilling and finishing, wire and sinker EDMs, and essential machining consumables.
Absolute founder and president Steve Ortner said the company’s customers today seek guidance in assembling complete turnkey system solutions for certain applications or part families as well as assistance with machine tool choice and application. “We help customers maximize the flexibility and profitability of their metalcutting investment. We’re like an architect that partners with them in planning their operations and solving their manufacturing challenges.”
