|Chuck Mangus, Field Application Manager at Swanstrom Tools|
The Swanstrom M-Series Medical-Grade Cutters were designed to cut through a variety of challenging materials and Mr. Mangus had our sales staff trying them out on Nitinol, piano wire, and others. After demonstrating a few hard-wire cutting applications (stylists, mandrels, etc.) he finished up by showing the proper way to cut these materials (do not cut with the back of the cutter) and the proper way to store the tools when not in use as to reduce strain on the spring mechanism.
|Tom Memmen, Mid-Atlantic Regional Sales Manager at Akro-Mils|
Our staff learned about the steps of a 5S/Lean initiative (Sort, Set in Order, Shine, Standardize, and Sustain) and the useful tools they could suggest as resources to our customers. For example, Mr. Memmen pointed out that Akro-Mils bins are perfect for sorting and separating items in the Sort process or for storing parts in the Set in Order step.
