Investing in new technology keeps Accurate at the head of the pack. After shifting to SOLIDWORKS a few years ago, they purchased a laser cutting machine to boost productivity and accuracy over their hi-def plasma. The laser led to more precision jobs, and Accurate quickly found itself in need of a more precise press brake that could keep pace.
With Big Area Additive Manufacturing (we call it BAAM around here), there’s a new way to prototype and produce parts and tooling for industries like automotive, aerospace and more. The technology is capable of quite literally changing how the world works. But when you break it down to day-to-day operations, it’s often far more practical.
When BJ McDonald, Facilities Manager and Co-Owner at Midland Metal Products, was shopping for a new laser cutting system, he was not a brand loyalist. With a need for a no-nonsense, low maintenance solution that could handle it all, McDonald did not care what company it came from. He just needed it to be the best.
