Larson Tool announces two exciting new developments – the acquisition of a Minster E2H-450 Hevi-Stamper press and the construction of a new 14,000-square foot manufacturing facility.
Our new Minster press has a 450-ton capacity with a 120-inch bed, giving us the ability to manufacture larger metal stampings and provide back-up to our existing line of Minster presses with capacities of 180 to 300 tons. Additionally, Minster’s Alternate Slide Motion technology allows for better material flow during forming operations while providing for economical press speeds.
The new press required a larger area, so we undertook new construction as an opportunity to consolidate operations. We were able to establish the optimal arrangement of the five Minster presses, creating better workflow and greater production efficiency. The new area was designed to enhance implementation of Larson’s Lean Manufacturing initiative.
This investment ensures Larson Tool continues to be competitive in the marketplace with a commitment to meeting our customers’ needs and expectations.
