D+M Metal Products’ Bob Buist will be attending the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association Intl.® (FMA) annual meeting in New Orleans on March 8-10, 2017.
This year taking the opportunity to talk with other people in the industry will be especially helpful because the rapidly changing political landscape will have ramifications for the economy and for fabricating and manufacturing in ways we may not already anticipate. FMA’s economic analyst Dr. Chris Kuehl will be sharing his thoughts on what we may expect. Other topics of interest we can look forward to include: the latest in equipment technology and automation, lean principles, employee recruitment and engagement, and how changing technology will affect business in the coming months and years.
Anyone in the fabricating and manufacturing industry attending, feel free to say hello to Bob while at the conference or to contact him via the website beforehand so we can make connecting in New Orleans possible.
In 1981 D+M purchased its first CNC turret press, since that time we’ve continued to add and update our turret press capacity. Recently we added a new LVD V30 turret press to replace one of our aging Pega machines. The increase in sheet size and speed improves our capacity without increasing the floor space required.
At the same time we purchased a new LVD PPEC 7-axis press brake that replaces another aged out press brake. The improvement in speed, multi axis gaging and quality also increases our ability and capacity in our press area. By continuing to invest in new and updated equipment we are able to improve our quality and effectiveness to meet our customers’ requirements.
