The Latest - Testimonials
“I’m a firm believer in having the people who originally built the press remanufacture it, if possible. That way I get the proper prints, the right engineering and proper controls. Minster has the people on board to get the job done right.”
“It’s easy to set up and the operators love it. In fact, they want me to put Minster equipment on all the press line because of how well that one works.”
“You can get smaller presses that run the same speed and have the same tonnage, but I see an overwhelming difference in the Minster’s because of the mass. The Minster Presses consistently out-perform their competitors.”
“Compared to other presses, when you add the repeatability, the tolerances and the service capabilities offered, your uptime is clearly better with a Minster Press.”
“We don’t want to have to worry about the press, and that’s what keeps us coming back to Minster. When you have a Minster, 99 percent of the problem is going to be somewhere else, not the press.”
“The parts coming off the Minster presses and J.V. Tooling are a straight flat part and we really see some benefits from that. We are consistently getting a better part, and I think that is a function of the press as well as the tooling.”
“The dependability of the Minster press is very important to us. We’ve got anywhere from 24 to 48 hours to set up and run a part, and if we’ve got a problem, we’re in trouble, and we’ve never had any problems with the Minsters.”
“We know we can get a 24-hour turnaround on replacement parts. And if there is a problem, the service personnel respond instantly to maximize production uptime.”
“They (Minster Presses) are without a doubt the finest machines we’ve ever had in this facility.”
“We like Minster because of the construction, the engineering, the attention to detail and the ability to build a press that is very adequate for the job, yet not over-engineered.”
“Everyone in the industry knows that downtime can be costly if the problem is not solved immediately. That is not a concern with Minsters.”
“Minster combines reliability and high-tech performance to help us meet our customers’ demands. The equipment’s dependability and consistent uptime has ultimately allowed us to produce a superior product, while keeping the costs to the end-user at a minimum."
“We've learned that a company has to have confidence in its press so that down time is limited to a tooling problem, not so much press related. We have that confidence in Minster."
"There's no question -- Minster presses have an excellent reputation in the industry for dependable accuracy and versatility throughout their integrated machinery package."
"Unlike some companies, Minster is interested in more than simply building presses; they are actively involved with making their product better for their customers. Because of that, we're very comfortable with the single source direction that we've taken in recent years."
"Sometimes we wonder how we made parts before we got our Minsters . . . If it were up to our foremen and die makers we would have to run every job on a Minster."
"You have to give credit where credit is due. Some other presses, for example, have a lot of good features, but the big difference between them and Minster is service."
"Our oldest Minster press is in the same shape today as when we bought it. That is one reason for buying a Minster. If you maintain them, they don't wear out."
"The service we get from Minster is beyond reproach . . . It's the people from Minster and the way they deal with their customers that make us use Minster and not even consider using anything else."
New Minster press lines at WCI have increased capacity, while replacing existing manually-fed press lines. As a result of their fast changeover capability, flexibility has been improved and Just-In-Time production has been made possible.
"We wanted single-source responsibility and we knew that with Minster, we would be able to call one person and get the answers we needed."
"A big advantage of Minster equipment is low maintenance and virtual absence of downtime for press repair . . . We bought Minsters because they work. They're the best in the industry, and they enable us to do our job, day in and day out."
"We invest a great deal of effort in maintaining our dies . . . when our dies are in a Minster, we've done the best we can possibly do."
"As far as we're concerned, there's no better press equipment on the market than Minster, period!"
