We establish many of our new accounts from recommendations. Our success is based on our understanding of the customer’s process. We look at the formed sheet indexing through to the final station, aligning up the formed parts to the trim, designing proper buildups to accommodate the part depth and of course assisting our customers achieve the best-trimmed part with different knife options, locators and heat.
