Billco Cutter Running Strong After 35 Years

"A tried and true, trusted machine with minimal downtime ... it has been able to produce a tremendous amount of glass for us in 35 years."

-Maintenance Manager

Billco is often associated with producing high quality equipment. Although we provide lists of features, benefits and service support stats to showcase the quality, it’s sometime easiest to let our equipment speak for itself.

When our customer approached us about replacing their Billco cutting table, they mentioned their existing table was more than 35 years old, meaning it was built in 1984! By the numbers, this cutter has seen 4 decades and has more than 23,000 shifts under its belt. According to their maintenance manager “it has really been a tremendous work horse for us. A tried and true, trusted machine with minimal downtime…it has been able to produce a tremendous amount of glass for us in 35 years.”

They attribute the longevity of the cutter to the robust design coupled with the training provided to the operators and maintenance personnel by Billco. Together both companies have had a great working relationship to keep the machine operating well. “Billco support, when needed, has been great” added their manager, noting that most calls are to the Replacement Parts department for common age-related repairs and maintenance and very rarely to the Service team.
