We met up with Johan Murén at Legomek in their factory in Ockelbo Sweden to talk a little about what they do and how they use Atling Steady Rests.

Hi Johan, let’s start with: who are you?

I am Johan Murén, 36 years old and I work as a machine operator at Legomek. I have worked here for 18 years now.  

What do you do at Legomek?

I operate 4 machines at the same time, all using Atling steady rests. Two of the machines are Mazak QuickTurn 350 with an accompanying robot cell, where we use Atling AX5 with Zero point Clamping brackets (ZPC).

What does Legomek do?

We mostly manufacture rock drills and drill bits for Sandvik Mining and we only use Atling Steady Rests in our production. We are around 40 employees and growing every year.

How do you use the Atling steady rests?

We use them to end machining the length of the workpieces. Without the Atling Steady Rests, we would have needed more setups in the production. We also use them in other machines to decrease vibrations when machining thinner workpieces.

What do you think is the largest advantage with Atling Steady Rests?

The flexibility and quality! The vibration damping works impeccably, and we rarely need to re-center our steady rests. The steady rests with ZPC brackets have kept the accuracy and only needed light adjustment during 2,5 years and it has kept a tolerance range of 0,03 mm.

I am working with sales of Steady rest and concentrate on machine builders mainly in Asia.

For how long have you worked at Atling? 

This is my second time with Atling. I was working with sales from august 2011 to September 2014. This time I have been with Atling Sales for almost 3 years.

What did you do before joining Atling? 

My experience is in sales, purchasing, and planning. But the field I prefer is sales.

What is the single best thing with the Atling Steady Rests?

Our customers.

Korean food, which should be enjoyed in a small restaurant in Korea. They are specialized in a few dishes so you choose the restaurant depending on what food you want to eat.

I like old rock and roll and music where I can enjoy dancing.

Best movie you ever saw:  

I cannot pinpoint one movie but I like action. Bond movies or others.

I like traveling a lot, which I do in my work and also with my wife. I also enjoy being in the forest cutting wood, picking berries, and hunting. The most relaxing is fishing – big fish or small fish it doesn’t matter.

We had a chat with Niklas Sjöqvist, Machine Salesman and Key Account Manager for mid-Sweden at Duroc Machine tool. We talked about why Atling steady rest often is their first choice of steady rests for the Doosan turning machines.

 

Niklas, can you start by telling us a little about Duroc Machine Tools?

Duroc Machine Tool is part of the Duroc Group. We are represented in seven countries throughout the Nordics and the Baltic states. We are a dealer for CNC machines mainly from Doosan, a Korean manufacturer, but also machines from the Italian manufacturer FPT.

 

Who are your target customers?

Manufacturing companies specializing in cutting processes, both contract manufacturer and companies with own products with machining workshop.

 

What is Duroc Machine Tools connection to Atling Steady Rest?

Duroc Machine Tool sells turning machines that are often equipped with an Atling Steady Rest. The Doosan turning machines that are in stock in Europe come without a steady rest and need to be equipped with this before being sold. For this we always need to find out the customers’ needs for the steady rest function, size, and adapter plate for the turning machine. In this process it is important to have a partner who is easy to work with, understand what needs to be done and has a quick response time. All of this is something we get with Atling. However, Doosan also manufactures turning machines that are ready-to-go with brackets specifically for Atling steady rests.

 

What would you say are the main benefits with Atling Steady rests? 

Some useful features that come as standard are the wider gripping range, the built-in channels for cooling media.

Also, the Zero Point Clamping Bracket which makes it much easier to setup and remove the steady rests from the turning machine. This  I haven’t found with any other supplier as a standard option. But above all, the main benefit with Atling for me, who have my customers mainly in Sweden, is the Atling team. They have fast response time and are always eager to help and discuss our customers’ needs.

 

Thank you for the chat Niklas!
