Customer Success Story
When PRECISION STAMPING (a Top 5 Tier One Automotive Manufacturer) was challenged by one of his biggest customers to stamp a new program consisting of material with Yield Strength of up to 142,000psi, he immediately began researching Feed Line options. His busy and growing stamping business used a variety of feed line brands including COLT. With quality, budget and a customer focus, he quickly realized COLT Automation’s AHSS Feed Line Solution was the best option for Precision. “Colt’s rugged equipment, advanced controls and AHSS Straightening Technology really gave me confidence. We installed our first feed line in December 2016.”
