To date 153 Amermac machines have been produced in Monticello, MN.
Here are some milestones and statistics on the Amermac Line:
Jan 2012 the Haas VF3YT was installed at the plant and was used to manufacture the adapters for the cabinet truers.
May 2013 the training DVD for the Amermac 405 Truer was finalized. The DVD has been a valuable tool for our customers. A marketing brochure for end users was also put in print highlighting the benefits of truing.
Did you know that truing has been increasing in demand? Our end users have told us the foreign tires and rims when paired together can create a more pronounced out of round scenario than domestic tires and rims. With the increased sales of foreign rims and tires people have been searching for solutions to create a smooth ride. Truing is the best way to alleviate the vibrations & shimmies caused by the tires and rims being out of round thus the increase in demand for truing.
In March of 2014 some changes were made on the Amermac Blades for truing, the blades angle was adjusted. This was designed to increase stone life by the blade being pre-sharpened. A new foot design was also developed for the Porta Truers.
Amermac has provided our company with some challenges and opportunities for growth. Congratulations to the entire team on the continued efforts to keep our customer’s happy and sales growing.
