Sudami X Ring - Since 2012

Friends make business out of pleasure

Gerrie de Beer and Sarel Smith of Sudami X-Ring certainly have a lot to smile about. Both avid rifle specialists engaged in successful competition shooting, they have developed a range of reloading accessories and equipment for the sport. Building on their success to date Sudami X-Ring now employ four Hurco machines; TM6i and TM8i CNC Lathes and the compact, powerful VM10i CNC Mill to produce the parts for their growing business.

Two friends make a business from pleasure and how it all started out as... Sarel can you modify this tool for me and make it better than it is please; don't worry I will make a "mod"

The two friends, with a passion and considerable expertise for hunting and competition rifle shooting, met each other on the shooting range whilst competing against each other. Having practiced the sport for some time they became more aware of the various, repetitive processes all serious shooters had to contend with and the lack of equipment available to assist with these tasks. Both avid rifle specialists engaged in successful competition shooting, they have developed a range of reloading accessories and equipment for the sport.

After going through the normal design and development stages Gerrie and Sarel set up the Company Sudami X-Ring to produce the parts for their new products. Initial production was on some older CNC equipment and conventional machines. However, as the product has taken off and manufacturing increased Gerrie started to look around for, initially a small CNC Lathe to cope with the increased production. The first Hurco machine, CNC Lathe model TM8i was supplied in November 2013 along with a Hurco Bar-Feeder and after a couple of days training with the Hurco Conversational Programming software Sudami X-Ring were up and running, along with the continued support from Christo Moolman, Hurco South Africa Applications specialist.
