Cincinnati Incorporated (CI) will showcase its family of Small Area Additive Manufacturing (SAAM) machines at RAPID + TCT 2019 in Detroit, Michigan in Booth #1517, May 21-23. The SAAM machines were originally designed as a complement to CI’s larger BAAM and MAAM industrial sized additive manufacturing machines. They allow for prototypes to be created before entering full-scale production on the larger machines.
Cincinnati Incorporated will sponsor the 2019 Flying Pig Marathon, also known as the Pig Party, on May 3-5 in Cincinnati at the Duke Energy Convention Center. In 2018, CI donated a 3D printed 26.2 that was displayed at both the expo and the finish line. This year, the company will be donating a custom 3D printed 13.1 to complete the set.
With the intention of showcasing their latest manufacturing technology, one of the development partners of Cincinnati Incorporated (CI), Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) decided to participate in the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
When Chris Curtis took over RC Industries in 1994, the company was in disarray. Fresh off an MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, Curtis immediately identified a few reasons for the company’s stagnation.
The SAAM and SAAM HT, 3D printers backed by open sourcing and an Automated Ejection System, are an unbeatable pair of additive solutions for metal fabricators. Get ready to create custom tooling on demand.
Based in the heart of the Midwest near Rockford, Illinois, Pro Arc fabricates steel, aluminum and stainless. The team has a passion for custom and prototype work and lives for the challenges that come through the door. Here’s how Pro Arc expanded their in-house fabrication capabilities with a brand-new CINCINNATI laser cutter, the CL-965.
Post-sale service and support has always been a priority at CINCINNATI. It’s a big reason we’ve been around for so long. But 15 years ago, we began the transition from reactive to proactive post-sale service. The first step: control upgrades on our press brakes.
If you’re wondering how to grow a fabrication business, RC Industries has a template. Its CINCINNATI machines help the company stay nimble and endlessly productive. The company now owns one mechanical shear, eight press brakes, fourlasers and one automation system with a tower—all CINCINNATI. The company’s oldest CI machine was made in 1953 and the newest in 2018. Chris spells out the reason: “I don’t have to worry about the equipment,” he says. “Nothing is made like a CINCINNATI.”
When operating a press brake, you have two primary and vital objectives. First, you must eliminate the need for operators to place any parts of their bodies within (or even near) the point of operation when loading, forming or unloading. Second, choose a guard, device or operating method that prevents entry or stops die closing if the operators inadvertently enter the point of operation.
Ryan Carne, president of Detronic Industries, has been with the same company for 24 years. He’s had Cincinnati press brakes that entire time. Why the focus on Cincinnati? In their president’s words, “They place an uncommon emphasis on educating and taking care of their customers.”
For those looking to evolve their laser cutting process, there’s a new acronym to get to know: The MARCH System, our revolutionary laser automation tower. It guarantees faster cycle times for your laser cutting operation.
