"We had never seen a machine configured like this, and we were excited to see how the swiveling and rotating capability were combined in the table."
“We like the unique configuration of the spindle versus the worktable as the spindle comes in horizontally...You can machine unique cutting geometries and hard to reach areas. The configuration is also good for chip control.”
"You’re dealing with factory direct parts [GROB manufactures machine tools at its Bluffton, OH, plant] and technicians that are very knowledgeable and that was a big appeal for us.”
