Our Facility

The flexibility to meet your production demands

With over 80 presses ranging in size from 5 to 60 tons, our pressroom offers outstanding flexibility to meet your production needs. It also means we don’t have to pull dies in and out of presses to meet demands guaranteeing uninterrupted schedules and on-time deliveries.

Pressroom capabilities at-a-glance

  • Staffed with over 40 Pennsylvania Journeyman Tool and Diemakers.
  • Over 80 presses ranging from 5 to 60 tons.
  • Three shifts operating each day.
  • Seven days a week production available.
  • Reel to reel, bulk loose piece, or stacked production runs.
  • 100 strokes per minute (SPM) up to 2000 SPM.
  • Separate pressroom maintenance shop streamlines maintenance issues, keeps dies running, and parts to specification.

Quicker turnaround times

Redesigned to support lean manufacturing, our new pressroom layout saves production time and increases efficiency, resulting in quicker turnaround times throughout the production run process. The benefits of a lean manufacturing layout, combined with our 13 PPT On-Line Vision Systems, 4 OGP Smart Scopes, and 3 OGP optical comparators increase product quality for you and your customers.
