Attleboro, MA – 7/29/2013 – Two new developments have been announced at Larson Tool and Stamping Company, the construction of a new 2,500-square foot manufacturing facility and the acquisition of a Greenerd deep-draw hydraulic press line.
With a 300-ton capacity and fully automated 5 station transfer system, the Greenerd press line incorporates a Cooper-Weymouth Peterson zig-zag feed to optimize material usage. The press and feed are a part of a manufacturing system designed and developed completely by Larson’s engineering staff. Utilizing lean principals, including one piece work flow, providing a complete process from raw materials to the packaged product, the automation system and press tooling were manufactured and installed in-house by Larson’s own tool makers.
In order to accommodate the new press line, Larson needed a larger facility to house it and took on the construction of a custom-designed 2,500 square foot addition. During this time they were about to establish an arrangement of press line and related processes to create optimal work flow and efficiency in production. Radiant floor heating was installed to utilize heat from process cooling water as a part of Larson’s Green Initiative.
According to John Cryan, Sales Manager at Larson Tool, “This investment represents an ongoing commitment to helping Larson’s customers stay competitive in the marketplace and also meet their needs and expectations”.
