At WireTech Fabricators you’ll find 22 computer numerically controlled (CNC) wire formers that help the workers keep an efficient pace when working on projects. Executive Vice President Mike Baudhuin says the company has invested in technology to give its workers the best tools for the job.
The CNC machines pull wire off of coils then form it, giving it multiple bends on multiple planes in a single process. Baudhuin says without the CNC machines, all of the bends would have to be formed by separate machines. Oftentimes they will join a CNC machine with another machine since it doesn’t need to be manned.
Baudhuin has seen growth in the market over the past year and says with its caring and knowledgeable workforce, WireTech can compete globally. The machines are just their means to accomplish their ends.
