Palmer MAUS North America announced a recent installation of their 300 G Automatic Grinder at Pier Foundry, St. Paul, Minnesota.

Necessitated by capacity constraints, this machine was a significant purchase by Pier Foundry as it marked their entry into automatic grinding. The goal for this machine is to double their grinding output on that machine, ultimately helping to reduce lead times to their customers.

The 300 G grinder was installed quickly in December 2017, as the machine came reassembled and only needed to be connected with air collection and electrical before start-up.

Palmer MAUS provided training on the programming table and software to create the fixtures. “Overall Pier Foundry was pleased with the fast installation. Meeting the needs of our customers is very important to Pier, and we expect this machine to be a part of our steps into automation to improve efficiency, safety and deliveries,” said Matt Grilz, President of Pier Foundry.

“Palmer MAUS was pleased to have been selected by Pier Foundry for this project. We take pride in our high performing automatic grinding equipment that installs very easily,” said Matt Lis, General Manager for Palmer MAUS
