ELECTRIC SHAKERS STAMP OUT DOWNTIME
Unlike pneumatic shakers, the new patent-pending electric shakers require no maintenance, produce little noise, and perform reliably – even under the harshest factory conditions. They do not rely on costly plant air, resulting in less expensive operation. The electric shakers are green, they handle low-to-very-heavy (10,000 lb) scrap volumes, and they leave the factory floor ready to fit nearly all press bed T-slot configurations.
Radar Industries deals with scrap of varying sizes and shapes, making it difficult to find one system that solves the overall scrap issue. But, according to DeWitt, these electric shakers handle nearly everything. “The electric shakers are nearly as maintenance-free as any equipment could be. We inspect them periodically to make sure scrap isn’t jammed. Other than that, there really isn’t any maintenance.”
“The better my presses operate, the more scrap they produce,” said DeWitt. And his presses produce a lot of it – some 2000 pounds of scrap per hour. “These shakers have done everything that has been asked of them and then some.”
These days, when DeWitt arrives at Radar Industries, he knows that his scrap-removal problem has been permanently solved. With MPI’s electric shakers in place, the presses keep on running and downtime is now a rare concern.
