Both alternatives provide a compact steady rest with the high accuracy needed for a better finish of the workpiece.

We’ve said it before and will repeat it; 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 can also get to know them better. 

Next up is Jim Stroker, President at SpinTech Tools, North America

Please tell us a little about your company
SpinTech Tools was founded in 2011. We are family-owned and have over 30 years of experience in the workholding industry. With the relationships we have built into that timeline, SpinTech Tools track record shows trust with our customers and provides quality products and long-term solutions, which increase productivity and save thousands.

Who are your typical customers?
Most of our customers are distributors and Machine Tools Dealers. We also have strong relationships with our end-users, and application engineers at the companies we sell to.

For how long have you been a distributor?
I became familiar with Atling and their steady rests in 2010, which led us to always recommend Atling Steady Rests in many applications we provided to our customers. Atling reached out to us in 2018 and this relationship just made sense with our established Network in North America.

 What are Atling’s main benefits?
I believe Atling manufactures the best steady rest in our industry, along with the people behind Atling which makes this all possible.  Spintech Tool’s approach, communication, and purpose make it easy to work with Atling providing trust and a true partnership.

What, in your opinion, is most important when choosing a steady rest?
– design, and function that offers our customers a better choice for clearance and range. Quality – precision manufacturing processes that make Atling a steady rest second to none. Availability and Price – that is competitive in our market. Atling covers all the above and more, which makes them an excellent choice and we are pleased to have partnered with them.

Anything else that you would like to add?
SpinTech Tools’ attitude is to provide our customers with Service, Products, and Responsiveness which is unheard of in our Industry. Our goal is to bring Atling where it deserves to be in our North America market – at the top. We have never been more aligned, and focused!
