Carey Chen, President & CEO

“CI’s laser systems offer a broad array of productivity solutions for metal fabricators including: our productive stand-alone models, dual pallet tables, material handling and part sorting systems. CI’s software can further optimize our customers’ productivity through products like our Scheduler software which enables fabricators to load balance their schedule laser jobs for faster overall throughput.”

“CI’s “Voice of the Customer” program allows us to focus on the ever-changing needs of our customers. The introduction of our BaseForm hydraulic press brake in 2010 offered a lower-cost entry into the CI press brake family. Today in 2015, the new GoForm electric press brake will fill another gap, targeting metal fabricators who process smaller parts, require minimal footprints, and value machines that are portable."

"We are in an exciting process of rejuvenation and renewal at CI, reinvesting heavily in our technologies, facilities, and workforce. Our recent long-term strategy development includes the continued evolution of our core products, the expansion of new products and services, and entering new markets and industries on a global basis.”ƒƒ

“We developed and pioneered the use of high-speed linear-motor axis drives on laser cutting systems and now the same technology is taking us into the next generation of machine tools”

“BAAM is driving a spirit of renewal at CI, as there has been a tremendous response to the machine and the impact it has on manufacturing processes. This sense of rejuvenation also led to a new branding initiative and website (, so this is having a positive impact on our entire company.”

“The 3D items we have created from BAAM such as vehicles, kayaks, and aircraft replicas show the art of the possible with additive manufacturing.”
