Tongtai’s 6 and 8 position, 120 tool pallet pools are high-end efficient automation systems for today’s demanding manufacturing environments. PLC timers are optimized to dramatically save time while changing pallets.
SMI Corp. in Bechtelsville, PA needed a way to competitively manufacture their Industrial Brake Systems, while expanding and building the Contract Machining side of their business. After months of considering all available options, they found the best solution and value with the Tongtai HA-400II Horizontal Machining Center combined with an 8 Pallet Pool. As a smaller manufacturer, every dollar spent on equipment has to count. There can’t be any waste.
“The Tongtai Pallet Pool Machine gives us the most capability for dollar spent,” says Ed Conway, Owner. “We looked at a lot of competitors including some which were less expensive, but they didn’t stack up to the capabilities of the Tongtai HA-400II Pallet Pool System. MARTECH Machinery, Randolph, NJ has truly partnered with our organization to understand our needs and become part of our success. Since we’ve installed this machine not only have we now addressed the manufacture of our Industrial Brake products, we’re opening up many new doors on our contract manufacturing once our clients learn that we have this level of technology.”
