"SmartMill has a lug loader that handles wide boards, loads fast and fills 100% of the lugs. They also have a vision system integrated into their lug loader to manage precisely the accumulation and assure a constant flow of loading. When we installed the lug loader, it took our production up 35% automatically. It is almost maintenance free. Smartmill has a great service department. They are very quick to respond to our inquires and to delivery the parts we need. Overall, we were impressed by all the features available with their lug loader. We are very satisfied with SmartMills lug loader and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their system in the future. "
