Zagar names Absolute as distributor

Zagar Inc., Cleveland, the exclusive importer of Precihole Machine Tools Ltd., has appointed Absolute Machine Tools of Lorain, Ohio as its exclusive Midwest distributor for its deep-hole drilling solutions. Absolute will represent Precihole in the areas of Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia and Western Pennsylvania.

“We are very excited about becoming part of the Absolute Machine Tool Group,” stated Jim McGaffin, sales and marketing director for Zagar. “The Precihole line of deep hole drilling, honing, skiving, burnishing, and BTA drilling machines is a very appropriate  complement to Absolute's existing machine tools lines of You Ji, Johnford, Tongtai, Ecoca, and Accutex EDM”. Many of the customers served by Absolute have deep-hole drilling applications and the solution s can now be purchased from an one supplier.

Absolute Machine Tools owner Steve Ortner introduced the Precihole line to the company’s sales force at offices in Lorain, Livonia, Mich., and Mason, Ohio, at the end of December and now have several projects in the works. Absolute will be a full-service distributor, providing service and installation with support for applications and parts from Zagar.

Precihole Machines are built to perform gundrilling, BTA drilling, honing, reaming, counterboring, trepanning, skiving, burnishing and pull boring. These applications are targeted at industries such as firearms, hydraulics, gas and oil, aerospace and defense, automotive and medical.
