Marne, MI (PRWEB) April 13, 2011
West Michigan-based metal fabrication company DeWys Manufacturing Inc. announced today that it has invested in an automated loader/un-loader for their new laser cutting systems. The company has recently acquired a new Amada Pulsar 2415 4kW 5’ x 16’ Production Laser System from Amada America. Now they have taken production one step further with the Amada LMP 2412a automated loader/un-loader. The new machine is compact, reliable, and reduces set-up time drastically, and with the automation DeWys can continue to increase capacity without increasing labor costs.
“We are continually looking for ways to improve our lead times, focusing on the latest technology to automate, while keeping our lean journey in mind. With this automation for our new machine, we can compress our lead times even further to meet our customer’s increasingly shorter lead time requirements, while at the same time providing the much needed domestic option of lower cost,” says Jon DeWys, President of DeWys Manufacturing, Inc.
DeWys says that Amada’s cutting speed exceeds most other 4000 watt lasers on the market. The new automation for the laser will provide DeWys with additional production capacity and a reduced nitrogen cost, which compliments their lean journey. The Amada LMP 2412a allows DeWys to extend the amount of time the laser can run, which helps them support their growing customer base.
The increased capacity with lowering the labor costs made it easy for DeWys to invest in leading edge technology, even during these turbulent economic times.
