New ULTRA-LITE totes and containers: Legendary strength at 40% less weight
The engineers at MFG Tray found a way to lighten the new line of ULTRA-LITE products by 40% without compromising the durability and strength that the product line is known for around the world.
“ULTRA-LITE is a direct result of customer requests to help improve shop ergonomics and lower shipping weight,” explained Burt Hovis, product line manager for MFG Tray.
“Even at 40% lighter, ULTRA-LITE fiberglass products will be stronger than standard thermoplastic, can withstand temperatures from –60 to 250˚ F and are impervious to cutting oils, detergents, mild acids and alkaline solutions,” said Hovis.
MFG Tray will introduce this new line in March at the MODEX 2020 trade show.
Blade Refurb Business Growing in Texas
The demand for wind blade repair, restoration and re-conditioning is faring well for MFG Texas as the company brought on a new customer in 2019. The project involves refurbishment of blades ranging from 40-45 meters that are cycling in from all around the US.
MFG Texas is one of few facilities that provides in-factory warranty and post-warranty repairs that cannot be accomplished on site.
