Master WorkHolding (Morganton, North Carolina) invites customers to take advantage of its new project quoting process, which includes cost-effective “green” product options and a recycling plan for the reuse of obsolete fixtures. The company says customers can now discount their fixture price by selecting energy-saving options, including recycled and rebuilt hydraulic components; optional black oxide; un-machined edges on non-critical surfaces; exterior hydraulic plumbing; hardened components on only sliding or part-touching details; and electronic drawings rather than paper drawings.
Additionally, customers will have the opportunity to return existing obsolete fixturing for a full component evaluation. If any components are deemed reusable, the a credit will be issued toward the order. According to the company, green workholding can help customers lower capital equipment costs, reduce lead times and qualify for environmental tax credits.
