Testimonials – Our Assurance of High Quality Coatings
I did have one pair of each (one alpha and one TIN) coated round punches running and the Alpha does have almost no galvanized build-up and the TIN has much more. The machine runs one stroke per second for 8 or 16 hours a day with time down for loading coils and breaks.
To do maintenance, the die has to be removed: 1 hour, I have to separate the die and sharpen punches and re-assemble – the best case would be 2 hrs if only minimum sharpening needed. Die needs about an hour to install and run again. Also, see the reduced chipping of punches. And longer life on the die because the punch stays sharp and therefore less load/wear on the die.
Thanks, Tincoat for reducing my workload and increasing productivity as the dies all run longer without any basic maintenance.”
It takes 8 hours to remove tools from the press and resharpen them. Saving 6 sharpening saves 48 hours of labor!
“Alpha cutters are amazing! And I hear AlTiN can only get better… Either way, we are going to ship you a huge set to get processed asap… Thank you so much! Kirk is thinking that these cutters just eliminated an entire process to the current one we have to do!!! We are actually amazed at how much time this is saving on that process. Makes me wonder what else we are doing the hard way..LOL!”
