All U.S. sales, support, service and parts for the Feeler product line are handled directly through GBI Cincinnati and its national distributor network.
The product line features machine tools that include vertical, horizontal, die and mold, and dual-column machining centers; CNC lathes; tapping centers; and automation packages. Among the products offered are the QM-22 APC VMC, which has a built-in pallet shuttle; the TV-510, a drilling and tapping center; the FTC-20 8” lathe; and the VM-40 SA, a VMC with a side-mount toolchanger.
