SouthEastern Designers, Inc.:
TO THE PEOPLE OF TYMAC:
I want to take this opportunity to express my admiration for your outstanding
products. For 5 years I have observed the instrumented die casting process,
taken part in ADCI, DCRF and SDCE information and educational services and
made real improvements in the die casting work method.
I have carefully evaluated die casting instrumentation and controls. Still,
to this day I have not found better, more advanced systems than those
developed by Tymac.
I know that more improvements can be made in controls and instrumentation
but the state-of-the-art is to be found in your equipment. I look forward
to new and surprising advancements coming from your progressive work. Right
now, I know I will continue to enjoy working with and seeing the results of
your present product line.
Sincerely, William J. Barnes, President SDI
Top Die Casting Company, Inc.:
For almost 10 years, we have used Tymac real time closed loop control systems
and...MTU-9000 central computer system to produce superior die castings. In
the beginning, the RTU-5000 SuperShot II's gave us the ability to
dramatically reduce scrap rates and achieve quality levels that gave us a
substantial competitive advantage. The performance and flexibility of the
Tymac SuperShots has been a key factor in our ability to rapidly expand
while remaining profitable every year.
In our drive to maintain our competitive advantage, we have recently
investigated alternatives to the Tymac SuperShot closed loop controls and
have found none better. Recently, we evaluated new die casting machine
builder technology for shot control and SSM applications. ...We found that
the technology performance, reliability and flexibility offered by Tymac
to be the best available. Consequently, our maintenance team has decided
to install Tymac SuperShot real time control systems on every machine.
I took the time to write this letter to express our satisfaction with our
business dealings with Tymac and in recognition of the results we have
Yours Sincerely, Joe Prieve
Recently...Tymac has been very helpful and responsive to our concerns. Our
current system has been running relatively trouble free since [their] visit
earlier this year. I am very impressed with the Tymac system. It provides
plenty of valuable data, and has proven to be durable in this rough casting
environment. The system is accurate...I would recommend the use of Tymac
shot control for future systems. Tymac has been committed to upward
compatibility with their equipment.
I have been impressed by the reliability and robustness of the Tymac
equipment and software and the broad scope of real time information
provided by the MTU/LCM network. The payback generated by the first six
systems within months of operation, and the assurance that our process is
operating consistent with our customers' quality demands, motivated us to
release the additional four. The network also provides us with valuable,
real time management information. The Tymac network will be expanded to
encompass all 19 machines at the Tamworth plant, ranging from 300 to 2,000
tonnes by the end of 2002.
Since the introduction of the Tymac Supershot system we have seen a vast
improvement in the reduction of flash on our castings. Castings which
would be on the limit of the die cast process envelope would run consistantly
and reliably with the supershot system.
Further more with the confidence gained from operating the supershot we
can inject metal at much higher velocities knowing full well we will keep
the metal within the die cavity rather than all over the machine guarding.
