In addition, a large portion of the crankshafts used for the engines is ground on JUNKER grinding machines at various Mercury Marine suppliers.
Paul Stegemann, a manufacturing engineer, explained that the greatest advantage of working with JUNKER grinding machines is the changeovers and machine adjustability. He also praised JUNKER’s service team, stating: “They‘re always very responsive… if we need to get a service tech here, they always do a wonderful job.”
