Welcome to 1st Machine Tool Accessories’ Technical Help Hub.
"It has been almost five years since we installed Kitagawa chucks, and during that time they have proved to be a simple, yet highly effective solution. Indeed the proof of their performance and reliability can be judged by the fact that we now have almost 40 of our lathes equipped this way. It is also a reflection of 1st MTA's first class customer support, which ensures that spare jaws and backstop kits can be supplied to us within a matter of days, when required." "
"When we specify a machine tool, we know that 1st MTA will supply the indexer, chuck and power unit - and carry out the installation. It makes our life very much easier."
"When we invited 1st MTA in to discuss our requirements, it soon became clear that they were looking to find the best solution to our problems, not simply to supply a collection of parts from the standard catalogue. Today, the Qwik-Lok system is an integral part of our manufacturing operations, being incorporated within dedicated kits that also include tooling, inspection equipment, set-up instructions and CNC programs for every job."
"There is such a wide range of the Italian-built IEMCA barfeeds available that we can always find one that exactly fits our needs. If we need help for any reason, a 1st MTA engineer is always on site quickly. The magazines are quick to set up and reliable in operation, with minimal noise and vibrations, even when using hexagonal stock, which we do about 10% of the time."
