After 22 years, Next Generation Tooling has ended our relationship as an independent sales agent for MA Ford in the Northern California and Northern Nevada territories. Our last effective day will be September 30, 2017.
We truly appreciate and greatly value our long, successful relationship fostered by both MA Ford and NextGen since the inception of our company. We realize, with no reservation, that the wonderful people at MA Ford were a huge part of our success by working with us to develop technical solutions and will always value our memories and our personal friendships.
At the outset of our relationship in the late 1990's, we worked hand-in-hand with MA Ford to introduce their products to the unique applications and high speed machining that takes place in our markets.
In conjunction with the MA Ford engineering team we developed the 138 series end mills for use in aluminum and non-ferrous milling. As a result, many other end mill manufacturer's followed in the footsteps of that tool and began developing material specific tooling.
Because of the unique needs of our market, we suggested the expansion of LOC and OAL from what was commonly offered in "Stub, Standard, Long & Extra Long" lengths. The 138 series end mills where the first nationally recognized brand to offer 7 different lengths of cuts as stock standard.
We are very grateful to everyone at the MA Ford team who has worked with us hand-in-hand for so many years, and wish only the best for MA Ford in the future.
We where very excited to meet and greet many of our customers at the 2017 Western Tool & Supply Open House.
It was held at their San Jose, CA. on September 21- 22, 2017.
We featured quite a few featured products from our principals during the two day event. It was great discussing lots of technical applications that machinists brought to us!
The NEW SX9 SiALON Ceramic end mills are available in both a 4 flute and 6 flute configuration and can be used for slotting, pocketing, ramping, face milling, side milling and profile milliing.
