After Exal inquired, Ecotech Machine Tool flew into their location, evaluated their applications and space, and made a recommendation to purchase a GC8A-30 Angular Approach CNC Grinder.
In every way, this new machine outperformed the Toyoda grinder. What took three hours with the old machine now only takes one hour with the Ecotech grinder. It's faster and doesn't squeal or vibrate like their previous machine.
Because of how powerful this new machine has been, Exal doesn't even use the old Toyoda that would run full time during the week. The new machine from Ecotech only runs 1 or 2 days per week to produce the 30-50 pieces needed. This efficiency also results in less wear and tear and more longevity for the grinder.
Because of the machine size, there was extra work required to map out the floor plan and reconfigure the space to ensure the maximum effectiveness for this grinder, and the other operations taking place in the shared space. It was an easy installation process, and the learning curve to use the machine was manageable for the on-site crew.
Whether it's making tooling, punches, extrusion ends, or dies that form the shape of the cans; our machine handled all of Exal's needs. With our ongoing support and quick response, Exal knows they not only have a company that delivered them a machine but a partner that will help support and grow their business.
