As a special treat for our 75th Anniversary, we were included in the round one voting for the 2022 Coolest Thing Made in Michigan contest. We are so grateful to all of you that voted for us because we made it to round 2! Our Metal Disintegrators are among the 10 coolest things made in Michigan. Round two allows you to vote once a day for one week ending October 7, 2022. We were nominated in 2020 but didn’t make it to the second round. It’s so exciting to make it to round two, so we are asking for your help again, to see if we can make it into the top 3! As a small company, it would mean so much to us to have the honor of our metal disintegrators being chosen as the Coolest thing Made in Michigan.
We were recently accepted as a member of Proud to Manufacture in Michigan, which is a wonderful campaign designed to support manufacturing in Michigan. It is really cool to see Michigan returning to its reputation for manufacturing and to be part of that movement.
Shop local and Made in the USA were a big deal in the history of this country. After Covid, supporting local businesses seems to be more important to customers once again. Electro Arc metal disintegrating machines have always been Made in Michigan. As we celebrate our 75 anniversary with Stillion Industries’ 50th anniversary, we have learned more about the history of Electro Arc and the evolution of these metal disintegrating machines. This product line has expanded from 3 to over 40 different models and the acquisition of competing companies proves these machines are high quality and high value.
The community is such a big part of support, without other local businesses, our staff, and our customers, success would not be possible. Please consider voting for Stillion Industries in this year’s Coolest thing Made in Michigan contest. To be considered, every product must be made in Michigan, and made using a manufacturing process. Voting is open September 7 – 20 2022 for round one. 10 companies will continue on to the second round with voting from September 27 through October 7, 2022. The final award winner will be announced at the 2022 Manufacturing Excellence awards on November 10, 2022.
Why are Electro Arc Metal disintegrators the Coolest Thing Made in Michigan?
The EDM technology that makes metal disintegration machining (MDM) possible was created in part by the founder of Electro Arc. EDM has evolved to the point that most people are familiar with the concept, but it was a very new technology in 1947 when we started to sell these machines.
You may not know that Metal disintegration machines are tools that remove broken bolts, taps, screws, drills, and other fasteners fast! You can disintegrate out this broken tooling in minutes while preserving the thread and saving your part – not to mention money!
These machines are portable and require no training to use. We make a model for every application including DC machines like our Bolt Eater which can remove 2” and larger bolts.
These machines can disintegrate at any angle and come with a variety of options, allowing you to customize your machine.
The US Navy has been a long-time user of our metal disintegrating machines on their submarines.
