New Capacity for Tool Manufacture
With almost a complete disregard for the general state of the economy we are pleased to say that our customers have continued to invest in tooling for new extruded profiles. In 2009 our tool manufacturing facility produced a total of 174 tools for new applications. Naturally such demand highlighted the bottlenecks in the process. We are pleased to say that we have now added a third Wire Erosion machine to address the largest constraint in our tool room. The new machine, supplied by Mitsubishi, will not only relieve the bottleneck but will further enhance our ability to offer very competitive lead-times for the development of new extruded profiles.
