The Challenge

Tackling some of the toughest hole finishing applications our customers face is what the engineers at Monaghan Tooling Group have been doing for over 30 years. Our specialized production partners are also heavily involved in providing custom hole finishing solutions for our customers. The latest example comes from our production partner, Diatool, who specializes in producing high performance reamers. Diatool’s reamers were on full display in our booth at IMTS 2018, and Diatool’s owner, Joachim “Simi” Simolka, was present for the first couple of days of the show. Representatives from G & V Machine, a manufacturer of parts for the agriculture and heavy equipment industries, visited our booth and discussed a new application for one of Diatool’s reamers.

This application required a special custom reamer that was more demanding to manufacture than most, which meant it would require a significant amount of time and energy. Hours after the meeting with G & V about the technical specifications of the reamer, Simi boarded his flight back to Germany. When he landed in Germany after his 9 hour flight, Simi drove straight to Diatool’s production facility and began working on the special reamer needed for the application. Diatool is a fully equipped state of the art facility with over 50 employees, yet their owner took it upon himself to hop on a manual machine and work to help create a reamer for G & V. This is the advantage of working with production partners who specialize in their specific type of tooling. This is also a great example of how dedicated each team member of Monaghan Tooling Group is in helping our customers succeed. Customers can count on Monaghan Tooling Group’s engineers and production partners to work until we get their tooling right.
