Madison Heights, Mich. –As a leader in emergency vehicle safety lighting, Star Headlight & Lantern Co., Inc., needs dependable yet affordable gate cutters to ensure light gets through the optical lenses of its emergency vehicle lighting products.
So when Star Headlight’s gate cutter supplier increased its prices, the Avon, N.Y.-based company went looking for a new supplier. The search led to DME Molding Supplies, the leader in plastics processing maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) products.
“I found DME Gate Cutters at a better price than our previous supplier. Now, after using them, we've found that they're also better quality,” said Steve Newell, Tool Room Manager for Star Headlight.
Made of a high-grade steel with an ideal blend of hardness and strength, DME Gate Cutters feature a large, manufactured hinge that allows the blades to meet precisely at the cutting surface for sharp, precise trimming.
Advantages over competing products include:
- Easier handling – Thinner and lighter weight
- Sharper, longer-lasting cutting edge
- Lighter on budgets – lower maintenance and replacement costs
“Our machine operators who take the plastics parts off the presses go through gate cutters frequently, and they like to have nice sharp ones that perform well,” said Newell. “They've had nothing but positive feedback about the DME Gate Cutters.”
