We are looking into purchasing new screws for our Sumitomo electric injection molding machines. In the past, we have only purchased our screws from Bryant Sales and Services (Zeiger) and are currently looking into purchasing screws from another company. We have three companies on our list we are looking at purchasing from, Bryant Sales and Services (Zeiger), Reiloy USA, and Heat Tech Systems.

Has anyone had any experience dealing with these companies?

What do you like and dislike about the companies you have done business with?

If you have done business with more than one of these companies, which company do you like the best and why?

Are there any other companies in the US that we should be looking into to purchasing new screws from?

Thank you for your time,
Brian Howard

Santa Fe Machine Works is another good vendor with good prices. Two of the vendors you have mentioned we use and have not had any issue's. We only had an issue one time and the supplier caught it and made another screw causing a delay in shipping. All of those are good vendors. The heat tech guys seem to be very responsive and usually have quicker lead times/better prices.
