What the President of Performance Gear Systems says
"You could have the best tool in the world, but if you don't have a reliable, repeatable machine, then it's all for nothing. That's really one of the reasons that we use all-electric Shibaura machines. You know, we've found that over the years they're very consistent, very accurate, and have really helped us to provide our customers with the product that they require."
"We have a long partnership (with Shibaura Machine). We bought our first machine about 20 years ago and today we have 34 machines in-house. The CNC capabilities of all the machines on the market is really quite impressive but you know the difference really comes down to the service side and, for us, that's absolutely paramount"
