Machining Solutions Made to Measure

“At MODIG we always start by understanding your requirements, your problems, and what you’re trying to achieve.”

Although MODIG handles orders for some of the biggest manufacturers in the world, they’ve never lost sight of their origins as a family business. In both the European and North American enterprises, the intention is always to extend their family to include customers and partners.

“It’s a real strength of ours,” says Keith Lopez, President North America at Modig Machine Tool. “We go beyond saying, ‘Ok, do you want the red one or the blue one? The one on page 13 or the one on page 12?’ At MODIG, we always start by understanding your requirements, your problems, and what you’re trying to achieve.

“A lot of the time, what other companies regard of as customization we think of as standard,” Keith continues. “That can include fine tuning machines for customer specifications before shipping, all the way through to custom-building machining centers.”

MODIG often brings customers into the development process at a very early stage, which is key to both shortening lead times and ensuring that the end product meets requirements. Additionally, MODIG develops and manufactures both machining centers and fixtures, making customization a simpler process.

“All our machines have three things in common,” says David Modig, company president, “flexibility, adaptability and versatility. That’s true of MODIG as a supplier too, so turnkey solutions are often just the way we do business.”

Orizon utilizes 14 RigiMill MG machines to manufacture the most complex components in the Aerospace and Defense industry. MODIG and Orizon have a long history of working together, we each share the same goal of always delivering a quality product on-time and both companies are diligent in providing our customers with unique and innovative solutions.

”The MODIG HHV gives us an unfair advantage in so many ways.”

“In researching a machining platform that would push us ahead of our competitors, we needed to target floor space reduction, reduced material waist, versatility, and speed. We have identified a machine with these key characteristics and so much more. The MODIG HHV gives us an unfair advantage in so many ways. The versatility of running both bar and extruded shapes of unlimited length aren’t found in any other platform on the market. We now have the ability to “bar feed” multi axis parts and drop them into a parts catcher completely unattended by floor personnel. Long floor beams and complex extruded shapes are easier and faster than before. The high RPM spindle and variable clamping system ensures fast material removal while controlling holding fixture force and location. MODIG has changed the way we look at machining.”
