Ultra Tool Mfg. completed production of the largest transfer die in company history. What makes the part unique is that we’re able to produce eight different part numbers off of one transfer die with interchangeable tooling. Dan Nelson, Vice President-Sales, discusses the collaborative effort that the project required. “We had buy in and feedback all the way around and it worked out beautifully to complete this project,” he said.

Ultra Tool Mfg. kicked off a substantial project to upgrade their ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software to Plex Online. www.plex.com. Terry Hansen, Ultra’s President states “We fully expect this software to position the company for growth by seamlessly linking all manufacturing departments and eliminating islands of information such as individual spreadsheets and standalone software.” He added that the software and data will be hosted (SAAS) by Plex, and he expects this concept to lower IT costs by elimination of internal servers and support staffing.
Ultra Tool & Manufacturing, located near Milwaukee, WI, was recently cited on a segment of the PBS program “The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer”.
The segment was the second of a series of reports on America 's response to globalization and how U.S. manufacturers are fighting to close the cost gap with global competition.
As a metalforming supplier for Harley-Davidson, Ultra Tool and Manufacturing demonstrated how they compete globally by designing products that reduce material costs and eliminate waste. As shown in the report, a re-engineered part for Harley-Davidson eliminated costly secondary operations and reduced material costs by going from a three-piece assembly down to one.
Simulation software was also demonstrated as a successful tool in the reduction of labor costs by boosting productivity.
