We here at Hornet Cutting Systems love to tell the stories of our customers. One of those stories is CM Welding, a fabrication shop located in Midland, Texas. The company was started by owner Corey Mays after college, and since its start the company has grown from general fabricating and machine work to its own product line over the years.
Previously, they would cut everything by hand. Certain applications would take 3 weeks to cut. The long cutting time meant it was difficult to go after new business.
As Mays was looking for ways to streamline the business, he recalled seeing a Hornet Cutting Systems machine at a local shop a few years ago. He hadn’t been ready to make a purchase at that point, but he began doing his research and found the Roto Hornet 2000 CNC plasma pipe cutting machine fit exactly what the company needed.
The machine was installed in early October 2017, with the Hypertherm EDGE Connect CNC Controller and Rotary Tube Pro design software, and it began making a difference almost immediately.
Our latest case study takes a look at how the Roto Hornet 2000 pipe cutting machine started making a difference almost immediately for CM Welding, and how it allowed them to expand into new product lines.
Highlights of the case study include:
- Cutting time decreased from 3 weeks to 3 days on a specific product.
- How quickly an entry level employees was able to be set-up and running parts.
- CM Welding’s next Hornet cutting machine.
