New machine to transform operations and improve efficiencies

This piece of equipment is going to make the fabrication of pipe and tanks much more efficient and cost effective. -- John Bonk, President

WILMINGTON, DE (October 15, 2015)—M. Davis & Sons, Inc., a woman-owned, fifth generation industrial construction company, has acquired a new pipe and tube plasma cutting machine that will transform operations and improve efficiency in their Hadco Road Shop in Wilmington, Del.

The W-244 CNC Controlled Pipe Cutting Machine (made by Watts Specialties, Inc.) conveys and rotates pipe from two to 24 inches OD, has a 6-axis tracking torch for beveled holes and end cuts, automatically compensates for bent or out-of-round pipe, and include a hydraulically controlled lift deck.

“We’re all very excited about this piece of equipment,” said John Bonk, president of M. Davis & Sons. “It’s going to make the fabrication of pipe and tanks much more efficient and cost effective. We strive to be innovators in the fabrication process, and this piece of equipment puts us way out front in that regard.”

M. Davis also invested in the software for at-machine and remote pipe cut programming and job management. This software vastly simplifies the importing, design and nesting of parts, streamlines job estimating, scheduling and inventory management and allows job tracking in real-time.    

To watch the machine in action, go to https://youtu.be/KQ7_hqHRGVA for a video that was produced by Watts Specialties. A personal tour of the Hadco Road Shop, with a live demonstration of the machine’s capabilities, can also be arranged by calling Mike Kerwien at (302) 993-3303.
