The Eton upgrade will enable the custom vehicle cover manufacturer to add more loading, sewing and packing stations to its existing system. Additionally, Covercraft is automating its silk-screen printing process by installing a new sorting and handling system as part of the Eton 4000.
“With Eton, we have been able to double our operators’ productive needle time,” said Marty Lichtmann, president, Covercraft. “This translates into an average increase in overall productivity of 50 percent to 60 percent.”
