WHY HARTWIG?

When doing business with Hartwig, RL Hudson acquired a true partnership that offered a strong line card of options to meet all of their machining needs.

RL Hudson choose an Okuma GENOS M560-V when they wanted a vertical machining center that could achieve the standards required for their molds and tooling. The Okuma provided high speed, improved surface finishes, and tight tolerances.

“The Okuma M560-V is not bigger, but it is sturdier than its competition. We have been very impressed with its capabilities.”
~ Dave Johnson, Tooling Center & QC Supervisor

To work alongside their Okuma GENOS M560-V, RL Hudson also purchased an Okamoto Linear-618B. This little tool room surface grinder works well, providing a smooth running table.

“The Okamoto always does what it should. It’s a great grinder.“
~ D. Johnson

To measure the accuracy of their parts, check their tooling and measure the new models’ molds, RL Hudson is using a Hexagon 7.10.7 SF CMM.

“Once you learn how to use the Hexagon, you fall in love with it. It is very dependable and the software is very capable.” ~ D. Johnson

In addition to the highest quality machines on the market, Hartwig also supported RL Hudson with training until the operators were comfortable with the new technology. With local support, quick response times, and an emphasis on education, the Hartwig team has done everything they can to make sure that RL Hudson is fully optimizing their machine tools.

“The training we received from Hartwig was A+. The effort they put into getting a machinist with no experience up to speed was very appreciated. Hartwig definitely went above and beyond – they even helped us with processing programs for CAD/CAM.” ~ D. Johnson

As RL Hudson continues to provide innovative and creative solutions for their customers, Hartwig will continue to work alongside them, ensuring their machine tools keep up with demand.
