Wilspread

Wilspread “Equipment Designed with the Operator in Mind”

WilSpread is a road widening machine designed to build up road shoulders from 1 to 5 feet in width. Machine operation is easy and straightforward. The operator controls the flow of materials and spread speed from the machine hopper by using a simple, durable handheld remote control.

WilSpread is constructed using quality materials to ensure that each machine will provide years of trouble free service. Every machine that leaves our facility is thoroughly tested and ready for immediate deployment on your work sites. WilSpread saves time and money when compared to traditional road construction methods. It mounts quickly to easily distribute construction fill materials in the correct amounts in the right location with minimal waste.

WilSpread is co-located with parent company, Mid-State Equipment Company, in Mount Ulla, NC. For over 30 years, we have produced expertly milled metal products that have met our customer’s exacting standards. Mid-State Equipment Company manufactures and markets dependable and innovative industrial machinery for the construction and manufacturing sectors.

Our engineers and technical staff are available for visitation and consultation from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday – Friday. We invite you to visit WilSpread, or give Mid-State a call to arrange a demonstration of this affordable machine.

Tiger Rear

Tiger Rear Ends “The Low Drag Standard”

Tiger Rear Ends are the new racing standard for dirt and asphalt.

The Tiger team reviewed, redesigned and created a rear end that solved the old problems and has set the new standard.

The secret is in the low drag construction. Races, seals, carrier and pinion bearings are all low drag components.

Racers are also winning with the Tiger Rear Ends because they’re … lighter, stronger and faster. Top quality magnesium and aluminum construction saves weight and puts more power to the rear wheels. Double ribbed backs and inner/outer bell ribs combine to create the industry’s most powerful racing rear end. With a Tiger you’ll gain 11-14 horsepower over a standard rear end.

Tiger Rear Ends offers comprehensive rear end services including: new complete ‘race ready’ units; rebuild services; components for all makes; and DIY kits.

At Tiger, we manufacture and build all-in-house. Each rear end is built by one technician, from start to finish.

Tiger quick-change rear ends really are track tested and race proven. We continually gather first-hand information at the races, for improving the Tiger Rear End.

We invite you to visit Tiger Rear Ends or call us for more information on our wide variety of brake, rear end and other racecar products and services.

Support Processes: Key Processes

Cost Matters

We all know total component acquisition cost is the major factor in placing an order. Our strategy is to focus on reducing cost drivers, so that we can produce win/win situations. You minimize your piece cost while we make a fair profit. Let’s discuss specifics about how we can help each other.

The Mid-State Machine approach to cost is not a rote time and materials approach to pricing. Before we provide you a proposal, we begin by reviewing each step in the manufacturing process. We focus our attention on opportunities to reduce spending by highlighting the key cost drivers and processes that could drive down our costs, and save you money.

Total cost drivers usually include some or all of the following:

  • Machining center technology and age
  • Fixturing and loading approaches
  • Efficient machining methods
  • Materials purchasing
  • Capacity utilization
  • Scheduling system efficiencies
  • Lean manufacturing techniques including:
    • Reduced set-up times
    • Reduced WIP
    • Cost of Quality
    • Inspection time
    • Cost of rejects or rework
    • Inventory investment
    • Freight and shipping methods and frequency
    • Customer order entry & administration

    After this careful review, we’ll propose a customized control plan to process your parts efficiently.

    Quality Counts

    In today’s manufacturing world, outstanding quality is a given. Mid-State Machine is committed to world-class performance. We’ve developed the region’s most comprehensive quality assurance and inspection department, backed by a documented quality system.

    Once we’re approved to begin manufacturing, a documented quality plan is created for every manufactured component. Parts are monitored throughout the entire manufacturing process. We use tools, which include statistical sampling, identification of critical requirements and process capability studies. Each process also has a written set of operating instructions to minimize error.

    Inspection steps are stored on our server and easily accessible. This automated approach reduces manual inspections and improves production time while allowing repeatable, reliable and efficient testing of your parts.

    The QC and inspection department at Mid-State Machine is comprehensive, versatile and very efficient. It’s exactly what you need when you’re looking for the highest quality component manufacturing.
