Unison Comfort Technologies | Prima Power Power Line

Unison Clears the Air on Automating Sheet Metal Fabrication

Unison Comfort Technologies was established in 2010 as the parent organization of Innovent, Valent, and Precision Coils. The company mission is to deliver products that reduce energy consumption and building operational costs. They looked at high speed punch presses, different types of lasers, and combination machines. Ultimately they decided on the Prima Power PSBB Line. They discovered that they could most easily maintain single part flow with the PSBB line, eliminate all the in-between processing handling time, and also reduce WIP.

Ovenmaker learns the lessons of fabricating

Customer Comments: “We outsourced $4-million of parts with sub-contractors in 2007. By the end of 2008 we should be doing 90% in-house. In five months, we are halfway to having the system pay for itself. It is already paying for itself in better products and inventory reduction.”

Produits Métalliques Bussières Inc. (St.Henri de Lévis, Québec) | Canadian Metalworking

A good marriage

Customer Comments: “Not only have we been able to bring all the laser work in-house from the subcontractors, but the quality is much better with the LP6. In addition, we have the flexibility to use either the laser or the turret punch press. We used to batch manufacture our parts. With the Finn-Power equipment, we nest everything…and this has made us more efficient. We no longer have to shear blanks. With the automation, we can utilize the economies of nesting full-sized sheets.”

New Turret Press Keys Productivity Turnaround

Customer Comments: “With the old method of production, our cost was $9/grille. With Finn-Power, our cost is $3/grille. We make 60,000 of these parts a year. In addition, the C5 Express has allowed us to bring all of the $250,000 outsourcing to job shops back in-house. That was a plus to the bottom line from the first day the C5 Express was installed.”

EPMP, INC | The Fabricator

Staying ahead of the competition with automation

Customer Comments: “In order to stay ahead of the competition, you have to automate. You have to take some additional risks that perhaps the rest of the industry may not be willing to take. When we decided to automate, we raised the bar for the rest of the industry in our area. We can now compete on fabricated parts from Mexico and China.”

Artistry in Metal

Customer Comments: “The difficulty in finding qualified manpower in the Vancouver area was very important factor in choosing the Shear Genius. But equally as important was eliminating processes such as shakeout of parts, deburring, etc. Even if manpower wasn’t an issue, to be competitive in today’s market you have to minimize or eliminate non-value-added processes.”

Servo-electric press brake hightens accuracy, lifts productivity

Customer Comments: ÒThe accuracy of the E brake is phenomenal. Our accuracy on the E brake is within .003 - .004 on every part. It is amazing, almost to the point where all you have to do is pull the program and you are sure the dimensions are right on the mark. The E brake is unbeatable on small runs. I can make a part on the E brake in the time it would take me to set up the older hydraulic machine.Ó

Grant Metal Products Ltd | MP&P

Growing pains eased with automation

Customer Comments: “There is a definite labor saving as well, since we no longer have to pre-shear. We’ve used the SG in a light out application where we’ve loaded it and gone home and it is ready for us the next morning. We are now using it for repeat orders – we just pull the file and run the job. In the first five months, the Shear Genius has improved our production at least 20%.”

Customer Comments: “Bringing the laser/punch into the picture helped our people make the transition into laser technology. About 95% of our parts that we put on the LPE require both the laser and the punch. The LPE gives 100% good parts. When the LPE arrived, we called it our Star Wars machine because it did so many things. It can laser cut, punch, nibble, upform, mark, tap, bend, sort, and stack – all unattended, all in a single setup.”

Peerless Electric Company Ltd | magazine assente

Fabrication flexibility in a changing market

Customer Comments: “It would take two people a day to produce a total of 40 parts. By contrast, with the Shear Genius and Express Bender, we have redesigned the unit to be comprised of one piece, and this allows us to produce 120 units per 8-hour shift with only one person. That is a substantial savings. With the Finn-Power Shear Genius and Express Bender we now truly have flexibility and are able to provide better customer service, shorter lead times, and higher quality. We can provide it faster and better than before.”
