After 18 years of running press brakes, Donnie Sammons knows something about press brake
operation. Moving from the shop floor into the front office as Engineering Manager for Karlee, he
knows that planning and setup are key to efficient bending operation. “Bending is the largest time
consumer in the manufacturing process. There are so many people
needed—People to determine part specs, plan the processes, and
machine setup. The bending process includes too much wasted time.”
With FabriBEND, those days are over. For Donnie, “FabriBEND
is a way for smart shop operators to apply their know-how to every
job.” This complete bending solution moves the setup process from
the press brake operator into the front office, where a more efficient
plan means quicker turnaround for your customers. According to
Donnie, “If those brakes aren’t going up and down, we’re not making money.” He knows that in
order to be competitive, you need an edge, and this system is that edge.
• Cut the bottom line for setup time with precise setup sheets.
• Improve piece flow by running multiple parts together.
• See the bends before they run, and detect costly problems before they occur.
• Step up to the industry standard for integrated bending solutions.
“We do work
because of the
bends. On a
project for one
of our Telecom customers,
we’ve reduced the number of
setups from 60 to 3 and
reduced setup time from 46
hours to 6 hours. FabriBEND
has provided us the technology
our customers demand”.
