Marne, MI (PRWEB) October 10, 2010
West Michigan-based metal fabrication company DeWys Manufacturing announced today that it has invested in a new high speed laser sheet metal cutting machine. The company has acquired another Amada Pulsar 2415 4kW 5’ x 16’ Production Laser System from Amada America Corp. The new machine offers high-speed, state-of-the art cutting ability, with virtually reducing set-up time.
“We are continually looking for ways to improve our lead times, while keeping our lean journey in mind. With this new machine, we can compress our lead times to meet and exceed customer’s increasingly shorter lead time requirements,” says Jon DeWys, President of DeWys Manufacturing, Inc. “The laser has the ability to run one to a thousand pieces very quickly, while the fast nozzle changeover contributes to reducing the set up time. Not to mention the reduction in our carbon footprint due to the nitrogen generation system utilizing shop air as a fuel source.”
DeWys says that Amada’s cutting speed exceeds most other 4000 watt lasers on the market. The new laser provides DeWys with additional capacity and reduced nitrogen cost, which compliments their lean journey. The Amada Pulsar 2415 expands DeWys overall laser capacity to four lasers, which helps them support their growing national customer base.
The long-term sustainability of this laser and continued growth of the company, made it easy for DeWys to invest in leading edge technology, even during a recession.
