No Break for These Brakes: Why Vermeer Chose CINCINNATI

Vermeer® Corporation, a third-generation family-owned company based in Pella, Iowa, is known for the manufacture of high-quality agricultural, underground construction, surface mining, tree care and environmental equipment. Known since 1948 for building products that are durable and reliable, it stands to reason that they would look for a fabrication equipment partner with the same reputation. They found the perfect match in CINCINNATI.

RC Industries Grows with CINCINNATI Fabrication Equipment

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.” 

The Indispensable Press Brake Safety Guide

The Indispensable Press Brake Safety Guide

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.
