A manufacturer of high quality lock sets and door hardware who wished to remain anonymous.
“ This is the only way we could make this part. The only other way would be a die set and that would cost a lot of money.”
“ This is the only way we could make this product. The only other way would be a die set and that would cost a lot of money. This way, we get all set up and run the material and get the parts we need. We don’t have to wait to get a die set."
“ We have to be able to react to design changes quickly. Sometimes a design will only last one month, so that’s why it’s better that we use the UniPunch punches. If we have a design change I just order the punches I need, and we can be back running again quickly. If we used die sets the product could have changed before we even got the die set delivered. We run about 6,000 of these parts a day. This timing plate, made with UniPunch C-Frame Tooling, is the critical element in ensuring that the high quality lock sets this customer makes work properly."
“ It has to be accurate. I have it running off a coil to a feeder that advances the material two inches at a time so every two inches I punch out a timing plate. I sent a drawing to UniPunch and they built me this special punch and die to do this. If these are off even ten thousandths, I could not make what we need."
“ When I came here they didn’t know about UniPunch. It used to take them three weeks to complete 300 locks...now we’re making 600 in one week just because I knew about the UniPunch system and was able to teach them how to use it and pick up our production.”
