Suhner and Velocity Products Form Partnership

Suhner announced a partnership with Velocity Products on the repair and maintenance of SU-matic tooling. Velocity is a distributor of tooling for Okuma, as well as innovative machine tools throughout North America. Velocity/SU-matic tooling is designed and manufactured by SU-matic. "SU-matic works closely with engineers from Okuma when designing new tools. The collaboration ensures enhanced tooling performance on lathes, multitasking machines and machine tools," said a company spokesperson.

"Velocity has experienced staff who can maintain tools at the highest standard required by OEM clients," continued the spokesperson. Walter Scheppe has over 30 years of experience in maintaining and repairing tools. He has fixed lathe tooling, angle heads, multi-spindle heads and specialty tooling. "The Velocity/SU-matic Preventive Maintenance Program uses the expertise of Walter and his team to keep the SU-matic tools running smoothly," said the spokesperson.

The Preventive Maintenance Program offers 72-hour inspection turnaround, inspection of radial and axial play on repairs. "In addition, Velocity/SU-matic tooling is guaranteed for two years; at the end of the two years, tools can be sent to the Velocity/SU-matic repair center for inspection, and if needed, return the tools to original factory specifications," said the spokesperson. The repair center is at Suhner's new location, in Rome, GA.

Commenting on the partnership, Bob Bauer, the Vice President of Velocity Products, said, "I am proud of the partnership we have formed with Suhner, as this allows us to provide a timely and high-quality service to Okuma."
