West Midland Grinding have purchased their 10th 2OM Cincinnati centreless grinding machine, 14th centreless grinding machine in total.
This one has been imported from a customer in the Republic of Ireland who originally used it to centreless grind their own turned parts in house. WMG offered a back-up or overflow service for this company for a while which developed into taking on all the work on a sub contract basis. Providing consistently excellent service and quality, along with competitive pricing, and building good working relationships between the two companies has now given the customer the confidence to remove their in house capacity option. Confidence enough, in fact, to sell their machine to their supplier – WMG! Another win-win deal for both parties.
The machine itself is in excellent condition, as would be expected given that it was recently rebuilt by A J Baker (Grinding) Ltd. It is also fitted with a pneumatic pace unit for semi-automatic centreless plunge grinding – a great addition to existing capacity at West Midland Grinding.
