Consulting Services

At TCR, we are more than a supplier: we are your partner. We consider your volume, workload, and processes to help you develop equipment solutions uniquely designed for your requirements. No two businesses are the same, which is we why we feel it is crucial to consider each customer’s needs individually.

Our goal is to help you maximize your ROI by creating the most efficient system possible. Our years of experience give us the knowledge and experience to design your perfect system down to the smallest detail. Whether it is updating the controls on existing equipment or building an entirely new system, we can get the job done.

We present turnkey solutions in complete detail before they are ordered, so you know exactly what you are getting. After your system is installed we thoroughly train your staff in its use and safety. We remain available to answer your questions and concerns and offer retraining of new employees long after the installation is complete.

INSTALLATION, TRAINING & SUPPORT SERVICES

Our equipment installation and integration process is designed to get you up and running as quickly as possible. This includes all the details like guarding, lubrication, scrap handling, etc. When we are done its ready to run.

Our team of professional electricians and millwrights have years of experience installing stamping systems. Your system will work perfectly and meet all OSHA and ANSI standards.

When you introduce a new system to your facility, it is crucial to train your employees on how to use it. We conduct comprehensive training on the new equipment. Your operators will have a thorough understanding of your system, including its safety features. This approach helps you to avoid start-up issues and gets the equipment in production.

Over time you will introduce new people, so we offer retraining and ongoing support. We will make sure the next generation knows how to use the equipment as well.

Training:

  • Coil line setup
  • Die protection programming
  • Tonnage monitor use
  • Safety
  • Press fundamentals
 

Repair and Inspection Services

Your success is our success. We are committed to helping you be as profitable and competitive as possible, which means helping you manage and maintain your assets throughout decades of service. To accomplish this goal, we provide repair and maintenance services to get your equipment back to factory specifications and maintain proper operation.

Our diagnostics services, including annual preventative maintenance inspections, allow us to identify the condition of your equipment and determine whether your machine can continue to operate at its optimum level. If there are any productivity or safety concerns our team will identify them and restore the equipment to the proper safe and productive condition.

We can make improvements to older machines to make them more productive, such as adding upgraded monitored lube systems, converting to AC variable speed drives, or adding state-of-the-art press controls. We can integrate components to enhance the diagnostic capabilities of the machines to prevent equipment damage and increase uptime.

Services for PLCs

We have programming capability for every major brand of PLC. If you need repairs, changes, replacement or new custom controls we can help you regardless of the platform.

TCR can create custom controls for new or existing equipment or modify what you have to add any new capabilities of features you require. We can support your needs without requiring you to change from the PLC brand you already have to one we are familiar with. Be it AB, Mitsubishi or Seimens, Horner or any other brand, we can work with it to help you.

One particular area of expertise for us has become integrating systems with multiple differing brands of PLCs. If you have a new machine coming in with Seimens and need it to integrate with your existing equipment that is all AB PLCs you may find the new equipment supplier is not comfortable doing that integration. We can step in and assist with that challenge.

Contact us today if you want to put new controls on an older custom machine, make changes to what you have or any other need requiring expert PLC programming. Our team knows stamping, the manufacturing environment, and the safety standards required to do it right.
