Suhner has partnered with Velocity Products on the repair and maintenance of SU-matic tooling. Velocity is the premier distributor of tooling for Okuma, as well as machine tools throughout North America. Velocity/SU-matic tooling is designed and manufactured by SU-matic, a worldwide leader in tooling technology. SU-matic works closely with engineers from Okuma when designing new tools. The collaboration ensures flawless tooling performance on lathes, multi-tasking machines and machine tools.
Velocity has experienced staff who can maintain tools at the highest standard required by OEM clients. Walter Scheppe has more than 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.
The Preventive Maintenance Program offers 72-hour inspection turnaround, inspection of radial and axial play and a six-month guarantee on repairs. In addition, Velocity/SU-matic tooling is guaranteed for two years; at the end of the two years, you can send your tools to the Velocity/SU-matic repair center for inspection, and if needed, return your tools to original factory specifications
The repair center is in Suhner’s new location, at 43 Anderson Road, Rome, GA 30161.
