We are very proud of our distributor network and all the great people working with our partners. Therefore, we have interviewed our partners and will share the interviews with you so you also can get to know them better. 

First out is Mr. Xabier Iriondo, CEO of Serkide in Spain. 

Please tell us a little about your company.

The company Serkide was created 18 years ago to offer high-quality technical service to end users, distributors, and machine tool manufacturers. For us as a company, our suppliers,  and clients, a good technical service team is crucial.  In 2018 we had a team of 16 technicians and decided to also open a commercial division to sell machine tool accessories where we have three salespeople at the moment. 

At the beginning of this year, we opened our own technical office to be able to provide better technical solutions and complete solutions to our clients – which means added value compared to our competitors.

Who are your typical customers? 

We have 3 lines of clients; manufacturers, distributors, and end users. We work with the best machine tool distributors in Spain and Portugal. 

For how long have you been an Atling distributor?

This year we will celebrate 7 years as distributors, but we have been a technical service partner for 18 years. 

What are Atling’s main benefits? 

It is a technically very good product, and the company gives high-quality technical support to distributors and customers. We work very closely together which results in fast response time and quick solutions when needed. 

What, in your opinion, is most important when choosing a steady rest? 

Regardless of the price and delivery time, we believe that the technical capacity to cover the customer’s needs. The reliability of the product is also very important.

I would also like to add that as an ATLING distributor, we are very happy with Atling because of the quality and reliability of the product, as well as for the support you give us. We do it every day to continue selling and improve market share.

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.
