Mitsubishi Laser customer, Custom Quality Manufacturing (CQM), has been featured in the May issue of FF Journal, a magazine dedicated to providing metal fabricators and OEM/end users a variety of informative content.
In the article, CQM President Jake Wieler goes on to explain that as the company’s customer base rapidly grew, they found the need to purchase a fiber laser machine with the right technology to keep up with demand.
Wieler was amazed by the Mitsubishi eX-F 8kW fiber laser capability to cut high-quality thick and thin materials quickly. He also realized that investing in a high-speed fiber laser cutting machine would mean investing in automation to ensure the shop wouldn’t hit any bottlenecks downstream.
“It didn’t make sense to have a standalone high-speed machine like this because it would simply sit idle,” says Wieler. “With the addition of the SmartFlex Rapid Tower, we are impressed with what we can run through our system. Before automation, we ran 60 to 70 sheets through with a two-minute cycle time. That didn’t give us enough time to clear the tables, but we no longer have that problem.”
CQM is a one-stop metal fabricating shop. It offers laser cutting, forming, blasting, welding, and paint finishing services and focuses on the agriculture automotive, and general industrial industry.
