McConway & Torley had many issues with its shakeout operation, which revolved around two older, two-mass natural-frequency shakeouts. McConway & Torley were investing a lot of money and time to replace specific parts of their old shakeout, which resulted in the loss of production time. Thus resulting in the operation to replace their current shakeout machines.

The managers at McConway & Torley realized they needed to replace the out-of-date shakeout machines with a more modern and efficient shakeout system. Randy Schudalla, plant manager, sought a quote for a new shakeout system from Carrier Vibrating Equipment. Carrier’s foundry sales manager, Chuck Mitchell, proposed a solution that offered mechanical and process advantages: the patented Delta-Phase® shakeout.
