Monti, Inc. Expands with a Second Greenwood, S.C. Manufacturing Plant

Monti manufacturing Plant in GreenWood North Carolina

Monti’s second Greenwood, S.C. facility recently opened its doors to expand its Epoxy Automated Line and add newly installed copper punching and press brake machines. This 33,000-square-foot expansion creates new jobs in the region with the potential to expand with future growth. This new manufacturing plant rounds out Monti’s services as the latest addition to its four other fabrication, powder coating and finishing plants in Cincinnati, Ohio, Greenwood S.C., and Sumter, S.C.

The new Epoxy facility is open Monday through Friday from 7 AM to 3:30 PM.

Boschert CU Profi Copper Bar Processing Machine

Boschert CU Profi Copper Bar Processing Machine

The Boschert CU Profi copper bar processing machine is a flexible and powerful solution for the efficient processing of copper, aluminum, and steel bars. Monti currently has three CU Profi’s in production and its newest addition will be equipped with 8 punching stations, one of which will be an extra-large station for punching up to 2-inch-diameter profiles. The CU Profi accommodates bars up to 20 feet long, 9 inches wide, and material up to ½ inch thick. The CNC-controlled punching heads use standard thick turret “B” station tools and are equipped with hydraulic material clamping in the Y-axis on both sides of the punching head to ensure straight punching patterns. Also, a new feature on Monti’s latest CU Profi will be the capability for in process CNC dot-peen marking. The material feed system on the CU Profi utilizes special clamps to ensure complete processing with little waste. This feeding unit is supported on a linear guide and AC-servo motor, which guarantees a repeatability of ±.004” on material that is .25” thick.

Bystronic Xact Smart CNC 160 Ton Press Brake

Bystronic Xact Smart CNC 160 Ton Press Brake

The new generation of the Xact Smart increases the versatility and speed of bending. With its numerous new functions, Bystronic’s Xact Smart offers a decisive plus in bending technology. From the very onset, Bystronic designed this machine tool to offer a performance package with intelligent functions that enable users to produce parts cost-effectively and in high quality. One of the additional functions is the Xact Smart’s insert extension and stroke length expansion. This means that higher tools can now be used with the Xact Smart and enables users to produce parts with lower bending edges. This is particularly useful, for example, bending boxes and drawers. Another feature is the five-axis backgauge. The newly designed Bystronic backgauge systems are faster and thus increase the speed of the bending sequences. The five-axis system will allow Monti to use the Xact Smart to be bend complex 3D parts. A very important additional feature of the Xact Smart is the intelligent sensor system for precise bending. The special Bystronic crowning technology ensures high-precision air bending results. This unique assistant function is only available in this form with press brakes from Bystronic. Thanks to its sensor system, the Xact Smart’s crowning recognizes the position and length of the sheet metal part. This sensor system is integrated directly into the ByVision Bending control. This enables the Xact Smart to automatically control the ideal distribution of the bending force across the entire bending length without requiring the operator to deal with complicated details. This results in precise and consistent angles with every bend.

What Can Monti Inc.’s GPO-3 Fabricating Capabilities Do For You?

We’ll also help you value engineer your GPO-3 part to shorten lead times while increasing the value of the component.

First, a little background on GPO-3:

GP0-3 is a UL recognized plastic insulation material that performs very well in many high voltage electrical insulating applications that require high strength, flame resistance, low smoke generation and moderate heat resistance. Its most common use is to support and electrically isolate power and electrical distribution equipment.

GPO-3 applications include bus bar supports and mounting panels and high-voltage appliance insulators.

GPO-3 is composed of glass mat and/or glass roving fibers impregnated with polyester resins laminated under moderate pressure or pultruded through a die into angle, channel, I-beam, rod and tube configurations. Continue reading “What Can Monti Inc.’s GPO-3 Fabricating Capabilities Do For You?”

What’s the Difference Between Epoxy and Polyester? (Laminating Plastics for G10 and GPO-3)

difference between epoxy and polyester for g10 and gpo-3

The performance behind G10 and GPO-3 insulating material’s laminating plastic will help you understand why they are specified for different tasks. Here are several important differences between the epoxy used to laminate G10 and the polyester resin used to laminate GPO-3. Continue reading “What’s the Difference Between Epoxy and Polyester?

Why is G10 Material good for electrical insulation?

g10 electrical insulation

It’s tough as nails and will last a lot longer!

G10 is a fiberglass sheet laminate, a kind of composite material created by stacking multiple layers of glass cloth, soaked in epoxy resin, and then compressing the resulting material under heat until cured. It is made in flat sheets, channels and angles. G10 is very similar to carbon fiber and other high tech fiber epoxy laminates, because they are all resin-based laminates. G-10 is the toughest glass fiber resin laminate and therefore the most commonly used. It is sometimes known as Garolite or Glastic insulator.
