Marabu Nails, Indonesia
ENKOTEC machines producing high-quality nails
The Indonesian nail producer PT. Industri Paku Ulir Marabu (MARABU NAILS) was founded in 1979 and today employs 50 people. In the early stages the company manufactured umbrella head roofing nails and from the mid 1980’s MARABU NAILS started producing other special nails, including spiral thread pallet nails. Today the company produces several types of nails such as flat head roofing nails, pallet nails, collated nails, stainless steel nails, as well as small-volume custom-made nails.
Lately there has been an increase in the sale of collated pallet nails, which require high quality nails. Production Manager Mr Hujaya Asikin: “This led us to consider ENKOTEC machines which produce 100% quality nails, oil-free, thus eliminating the need for a tumbling process as well as securing a high production rate.”
In 2010 MARABU NAILS decided to first acquire an ENKOTEC thread rolling machine type TA01. The machine ran full speed only after a few hours of setting up by an ENKOTEC service engineer and it has been running trouble-free since the time of installation.
ENKOTEC tool life exceeding all expectations
Initially the nail producer had concerns regarding tooling costs, but it soon appeared that tool life exceeded all expectations. Therefore, in early 2013 MARABU NAILS decided to add an ENKOTEC rotary nail machine type NI01 to supply nails for the thread roller. Again the machine ran smoothly from day one and tool life also exceeded expectations, thus reducing production costs.
Mr Asikin concludes: “Buying machines from ENKOTEC is definitely a positive experience":
- The sales people listen to our needs and can guide us to a solution.
- Setting up the machine and training our operators are excellent.
- The after-sales support team is always there to help.
All in all, ENKOTEC deliver what they promise and, therefore, we intend to replace the remaining old thread rollers with ENKOTEC thread rollers and ENKOTEC nail machines.”
