Contour 360:

" As the Manufacturing Manager at Contour 360 I have been able to operate and manage many different types of machinery - cylindrical grinders, conventional equipment, and of course our 5-axis CNC grinders. We just took delivery of two new TT820's, a decision based on the performance of our existing TT820 machine and, of course, our relationship with MODERN TOOLS. The installation of the new machines was seamless and extremely professional. We are looking forward to the exceptional performance we have already experienced from our original machine. Our thanks go out to MODERN TOOLS for a job well done!"

Colorado Industries:

" MODERN TOOLS has been calling on my company for many years, providing key information on new machine tool technology. As my business grew and I needed new technology for increased capacity, MODERN TOOLS was there to provide all the information needed to make a decision on the type of equipment as well as a competitive cost for each solution.
MODERN TOOLS reduced any risks by providing a piece of equipment of such quality that it was easily trainable to me and my staff, which in turn, increased production and allowed me to maintain the small margins we all have to work with in today's industry."

Chris Crandlemire

Manufacturing Engineer, GE Power Systems, Bangor, Maine

GE Power Systems:

"The scope of the project required the remanufacture of (3) large rotary grinders. Commonality between the machines was our goal. The problem was that we only had (2) grinders in-house to rebuild, so we needed to go find the third, and remanufacture it to match our existing machines.
We found MODERN TOOLS to be very focused and knowledgeable within the grinding world.

We also found that they represent one of the most experienced and capable rebuild/retrofit outfits in the U.S. We felt comfortable from the start dealing with them on this project.

MODERN TOOLS located a used machine for us which was in very good shape, arranged for us to inspect the machine under power, and coordinated the remanufacture of the machine to match our existing grinders, all within our specified budget and time frame. On a handshake, these guys went ahead and purchased the used machine before they had a formal P.O. from us. This act of good faith made it easy to entrust them to manage the rest of the project for us.

The machine has since been delivered and started up flawlessly. GE is very pleased with the quality of workmanship on this machine and with the project management supplied by MODERN TOOLS."
