It’s not necessarily always cost. Sometimes it comes down to KNOWING a company can do the job, and that’s why we’ll go to DMT for the most complex jobs.
Fixtures represent about 10-15% of the value of the project but can be major headaches if it’s wrong. …DMT’s is our partner and are great for large parts, heavy parts – heavy duty. For us they work well for customers like caterpillar.
DMT is Turnkey and integration. If we need a total system, then most other suppliers drop off the list. They know how to design and build the full realm of a system. They have good technology, innovation and they’re easy to work with.
DMT's greatest strength is versatility; their ability to take on an entire project--from design to implementation--and their ability to integrate with our other pieces of equipment. They truly understand the project and demonstrate that ability by doing what they said they would.
DMT was selected by our OEM supplier, but once we saw their work we liked it. They know machining. They understand CNC. There is no learning curve. Cost is important but time and quality is even more critical. I stick with people I can trust.
One thing that sets DMT apart is the amount of detail they provide. They’re really good at that. You’ll get a higher quality fixture. They’re good people who know their stuff.
What matters most when selecting a workholding company is seeing their work and knowing in advance how they’re going to support you. …There is no one else who does what DMT does as well as they do.
We choose to work with DMT because of the quality of their products and their design capabilities. When you work with DMT you know it’s going to turn out right. You can count on what you are going to get.
Our experience is that DMT is a terrific supplier and their people are highly skilled, professional, and customer driven. We see DMT as a benchmark supplier.
