    FENN was very easy to work with

    We decided to have our worn-out W-125SA Torin mechanical coiler retrofitted to a 2-axis servo coiler because our production required more feed length than a standard mechanical offered. We have other FENN-Torin coilers in our shop and are pleased with the support and customer service. The 2-axis retrofit has met our expectations as far as ease of set-up, since there was really no learning curve to the set-up and programming of the retrofit. We are now able to take spring production jobs we couldn’t run before on the mechanical W-125SA. FENN was very easy to work with during the retrofit process, keeping us updated on progress of the rebuild with pictures and a video of the finished machine. We recommend the Torin retrofit program as an economical way of rebuilding used FENN-Torin coilers, it was the right choice for us. We are also purchasing a rebuilt/retrofitted FENN-Torin FZ-115 6-axis coiler, to be delivered in February 2020.

    FENN-Torin is our choice

    In 2018 Mann-Hummel decided to replace an outdated cam driven spring coiler on a high-speed valve assembly machine. We use these valves in our oil filters for O.E. and Aftermarket customers. The equipment had become inefficient and spare parts were becoming difficult to find. The age and design of the equipment also made it difficult to train new personnel. We recognized it was time to modernize. We are not experts in making springs, so we had to increase our knowledge before making this important purchase. We researched on the internet and contacted several spring suppliers. After making several contacts we decided to observe several brands of spring coilers in a production environment. This also gave us the opportunity to ask questions about the equipment they had purchased. After talking with several spring technicians in the field we decided on a FENN-Torin Spring Coiler. Our Torin coiler has been in use for about a year now. Efficiency has increased and overall equipment repair cost is down. Although there have been learning curves with the new equipment FENN-Torin has supported us every step of the way. We are currently looking at a second coiler coupled with an assembly machine. FENN-Torin is our choice.

    Top-Notch Machines

    In 2009 we decided to purchase our first ‘Z’ CNC Coiler. The efficiencies gained by reduced setup time, increased throughput, and significantly reduced scrap rate while holding extremely tight tolerances was immediately realized through a complete statistical analysis. The machine paid for itself within months. Success with our first Torin ‘Z’ CNC led Springfield Spring to purchase another ‘Z’ CNC coiler, followed by three more of the latest model, the Torin FZ Series. Our five newest Torin spring coilers replaced all of our mechanicals, freeing up substantial space for new business endeavors. Fenn not only produces a top-notch machine but their sales, service, applications, and technical professionals are second to none. Fenn acts and responds like a business partner, not your traditional machine ‘dealer’.
