"Under production conditions, the Kitagawa equipment has subsequently proved to be far more rigid, accurate and durable than other units. We have only ever suffered one problem with our Kitagawa units and that was resolved within 24 hours. We therefore have the confidence of knowing that the equipment’s reliability is backed by excellent after sales support as well."
"Machining accuracy is taken as read, which is why Chick's versatility and cost-effectiveness, backed by 1st MTA's applications engineering support, have complemented our machine tool investments so well. Together, they have helped us to streamline our operations and compete more strongly than ever for high precision sub-contract machining work across a wide range of business sectors."
"The accuracy of all the equipment supplied by 1st MTA and the quality of the service we receive from their staff, from sales through to equipment installation and applications engineering, continues to support the high accuracy machining that is essential for mountaineering products on which people’s lives depend. It soon became evident that the Chick vices were increasing our productive machine time by more than we originally anticipated, often reducing lead times from days to a matter of hours, resulting in very fast payback on investment."
"The advantage of the Darex XT3000 drill sharpener over a CNC version is ease of use. Instead of having a dedicated person trained to grind the tools, all of our machine operators are able to sharpen their own twist drills on the Darex. It takes 15 minutes to learn how to use the Darex XT3000 Drill Sharpener and a drill is sharpened in a couple of minutes, so it is back in production quickly."
Since the company began 1st Machine Tool Accessories has led the industry in both durability and performance. With an unwavering commitment to the trades, 1mta continues to lead with a focus on providing innovative, trade-specific solutions.
