Samchully Machinery Co. has manufactured workholding devices for a variety of machine tool builders in South Korea for 30 years. In March 2010, it made a move to gain greater market share in the North and South American markets by establishing a U.S. operation (Samchully Workholding) in Irvine, California. And just prior to IMTS, it made another move: changing its booth location from the West Hall to the East Hall (Booth E-5173).
The new location more than doubled Samchully’s booth size to 1,500 square feet, enabling it to better emulate the company’s Korean SIMTOS show display and highlight its full range of affordable chucks, vises, steady rests and fourth- and fifth-axis NC rotary tables, the company says.
The company expects there to be a good bit of interest in its new line of low-cost rotary tables, in particular. It first offered its fourth-axis tables about one year ago and its fifth-axis versions late last year. Since then, the company says it has seen a surge in inquiries for its fifth-axis offerings. Those tables are value-priced, which the company believes gives it an advantage in the American markets. Plus, it notes that purchasing a fifth-axis table for an existing three-axis machine is less expensive than purchasing a machine with built-in fifth-axis capabilities.
