Friday, June 13, 2003
 
Elrae Industries, Inc., Alden, NY, a producer of stamped and rollformed components, custom assemblies and retail-ready products for a variety of industries, has added a new 600-press, a Minster Series E2 Hevistamper. The press expands the company’s stamping capability from a previous maximum of 330 tons. It will be housed in Elrae’s recently completed 26,000-sq.-ft. plant addition designed with a higher-ton press in mind, and brings the plant’s total size to 76,000 sq. ft. The press features a 120 by 60-in. bed for flexibility, stability and precision, with rapid and exact shutheight. It reportedly is ideal for heavy progressive-die work and other difficult jobs. The press’ production management control system allows fully integrated production for superb quality control, according to Elrae officials. Target date for production on the new press is early August 2003. For more, visit www.elrae.com.
