Why Buy?

Click the testimonials and case studies to see the positive gains your peers are gaining:

  1. If your fabrication workshop is not considering synchronising the shot-blasting and beamline together and working both machines in lights out automation perhaps you should be?
  2. Why is the steel service centre culture committed to investing in the cheapest beamline with limited capability, automation, speed or service reliability? No wonder value can not be provided to every profile competitively
  3. Why the fabricator needs to invest in a smarter machine than the steel service centre
  4. A fabricator should ask these questions before purchasing a beamline/coping robot to compare the workshop footprint ROI from loss of fabrication vs benefits of internal processing
  5. Ordering a beamline that works with NO LABOUR and in 100% automatic mode and lights out when everyone has left the factory
  6. Benefits for fabricating in house & reasons why to stop losing money purchasing processed steel from steel service centres that increase your fabrication man-hours by 40%, increase schedule & cost by 40%
  7. Any beamline manufacturer or agent of traditional beamlines or automatic systems must answer these critical questions to ensure the fabricator will be competitive
  8. Why the steel service centre refuses to include layout marking for add-on-parts AOP’s
  9. So what’s the problem with the steel service committing the cheapest beamline specification on the market?
