The Client
Precision Products, Inc. is a member of the Gleason Group of companies, and is proud to be a leading manufacturer of heavy-duty lawn and garden equipment.

The Challenge
With aging and obsolete equipment, Precision Products realized that they would not be able to achieve significant production increases without an upgrade. Not only did they need newer technology to become more efficient, but they also had to demonstrate cost efficiency and powder savings to justify the investment.

The Solution
Precision Products purchased two OptiBasic™ systems from Gema USA. The OptiBasic is a value-oriented system that couples the intelligence, integration and automation of a full OptiSystem with a stream-lined design. Each system included eight OptiGun™ automatic powder guns, OptiTronic™ Control Units and OptiFlow™ powder pumps.

The Savings
Precision Products began to see results right away. They have been able to reduce their powder usage and are now saving about $1,000.00 per week. Downtime for repairs has been eliminated and rejects have been reduced by 67%. With these and other factors considered, Precision Products achieved a payback in only 9 months.
