Jones & Shipman Hardinge to handle Super Precision sales and support in UK & Ireland.
Sales and technical support for the acclaimed Hardinge Super Precision (SP) range of turning and turn/grinding machines are now being handled in the UK and Ireland by Jones & Shipman Hardinge.
Based in their UK headquarters at Clifton Dunsmore near Rugby, Jones & Shipman Hardinge represents the interests of sister companies in the Hardinge group – Kellenberger, Hauser, Voumard, Tschudin and Usach – and now the SP products which were previously sold and supported from Germany.
In the UK the company also represents the interests of Okamoto grinding solutions.
As Jones & Shipman Hardinge UK managing director Mike Duignan explains, while filling a niche roll, SP machines are widely recognised as production machines of the highest calibre.
“Machines in the SP and SP Quest range can offer combined turning and grinding systems specifically designed to optimise production of high precision machining of complex parts. As well as their turning capability the machines can be equipped with grinding spindles giving the machine a capability of maintaining a continuous machining accuracy of 3 microns that is maintained over extended periods of operation”, he explains.
Super Precision machines offer a very compact footprint and with turnkey packages or optional automation, can operate as a stand-alone single machine or within a multi-cell environment.
“These machines are a perfect complement to our well established capability across the spectrum of grinding,” adds Mike Duignan. “They allow us to offer an optimal solution for customer’s high precision, complex parts production be it grinding, super precision hard turning or a combination of both.”
