New Tech Machinery's EZ-Counter Controller

New Tech Machinery’s EZ-Counter Controller

For contractors looking to save time on the job site, New Tech Machinery announces the EZ-Counter Controller. First introduced at IRE 2014, the EZ-Counter controller was developed by New Tech Machinery’s engineering department for use on MACH II gutter machines and SSR panel machines.

It operates as a touchscreen for quick and easy navigation and lets the user pre-program up to 50 lengths to save time on the job site. It can be set up to function in feet and inches, inches only and centimeters. Gutter machine miter lengths can be customized for each programmed job in order to reduce costly operator math errors.

Users can enjoy two tracking options. The first, is the totalizer like a trip odometer on the car while the second optional tracking is password protected. This option allows the user to calculate easier invoicing and more accurate material inventory.
This new product is available now and can be installed on machines leaving the factory or retrofitted onto machines in the field. A more advanced computer controller operation system is currently available on all other New Tech Machinery roof panel machines.

METALCON Welcome Party to Be Played by Beatles Tribute Band, Featuring New Tech Machinery Sales Manager

2014 marks the 50th anniversary that The Beatles played at the world-famous Red Rocks amphitheater in Colorado so booking a Beatles tribute band seemed like a great idea for the METALCON Denver Welcome Party. Plus, George is played by New Tech Machinery Sales Manager, Tom Laird.

The Fab 4, not affiliated with the Fab Four out of Las Vegas, is a Denver-based Beatles tribute band comprised of talented musicians who even mimic accents and movements of the original Beatles. Their charm has landed them many gigs in their 15 plus years, including cruise ships, private parties, sponsored outdoor concerts and professional sporting events!

The Fab 4 is scheduled to rock from 6:30 to 8:30 at the METALCON Welcome Party on Oct. 1 at the Colorado Convention Party. The party will be hosted by the Colorado Coalition founding members S-5! and New Tech Machinery.

Colorado Coalition to Welcome METALCON International to Denver

Visitors to the 24th METALCON International, slated for Oct. 1-3 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, will get a royal welcome from local companies involved in the show. Denver-based New Tech Machinery and Colorado Springs-based S-5! Solutions have formed the Colorado Coalition as a way of encouraging visitors to learn about Colorado before they arrive and for Coloradans to experience METALCON.

METALCON Show Director Claire Kilcoyne agrees that METALCON and Colorado are a perfect match. “We’re so glad to be coming to Denver. Colorado is a great state for metal and for business. That’s why we always wanted to bring the show here, so the expansion of the convention center was a turning point in doing that. Our friends at S-5! and New Tech are making great plans to welcome METALCON to their state. It’s a great feeling and we’re looking forward to all the exciting things happening in October.”

METALCON is the only annual international event focused on metal construction products, technologies and solutions. It draws designers, builders, developers, contractors, fabricators and suppliers from more than 52 countries each year. Experts from nearly 300 companies exhibit the latest products and technology and share their knowledge with attendees while industry specialists present key topics in the education program and in live demonstrations of field techniques held daily in the exhibit hall.

New Tech Machinery and S-5! Solutions have spearheaded the welcoming effort by generating awareness about METALCON among area groups, such as the Colorado Roofing Association, the Colorado AIA, IFMA, BOMA and surrounding state associations.

Keith Lipps, vice president of S-5! Solutions, is eager to show off his state and his company. “The Colorado Coalition was formed as soon as we learned METALCON was coming to our home state. It’s exciting and gives us a chance to welcome the industry to Colorado. The roofing industry here supports metal and solar and Colorado has consistently been in the top five states using solar. When a trade association meeting is held elsewhere in the U.S., people from the Rocky Mountain states have less of a chance to go. So we’re reaching out to our industry in our own backyard and the associations we’ve met with are very excited about METALCON. Downtown Denver is quite historic and fun and the convention center is walking distance to a lot of great places. We’re also inviting our distributors from all over the world for an S-5! meeting in conjunction with METALCON. So there are a lot of fantastic activities already set in place.”

S-5! Solutions offers a line of non-penetrating clamps, attachment brackets, snow retention systems, and solar attachment solutions that offer strength and longevity.

Kristin Peregoy, marketing manager for New Tech Machinery, is equally involved in the Colorado Coalition. “We are so excited to have METALCON here in our hometown. We’re getting a great response from trade groups in our area and making plans for a big welcoming party at the show. Some of our staff have never been to METALCON so this will be their first time to see the show. Denver is a green and environmentally friendly city so metal roofing is a key part of the area especially in the foothills. Rollforming also has a rich history in Denver and our company has been a major part of the metal community here for more than 20 years. So we’re very proud to be part of this coalition.”

New Tech Machinery manufactures portable rollforming equipment for roofing contractors, gutter contractors and in-plant manufacturers worldwide. Its current product line includes three standing seam roof panel machines, four seamless gutter machines, specialty machines and accessories for existing machines.

The value of metal in sustainable design and green building is highlighted at METALCON in Green Island, an area on the exhibit floor dedicated to metal products used in building energy-saving structures, and in Solar Bay, a special pavilion that showcases the benefits of integrating solar technology with metal roof and wall systems.

During the three-day conference and exhibition, specialists from the Metal Construction Association and other industry related associations present the latest applications and field techniques in daily demonstrations in the Metal in Action area of the exhibit hall. This interactive program combines the best of Solar Bay Live, MCA’s Residential and Commercial Roofing Demos, and Tools Demos. Solar Bay Live offers presentations of techniques for installing solar and metal combinations. In the tool demos, participants can test the latest tools for use with metal.

METALCON is produced by Newton, Mass.-based PSMJ Resources Inc. and sponsored by the Metal Construction Association. MCA is an organization of leading manufacturers and suppliers headquartered in Chicago.
