The Power of Laser Metal Fabrication, with Dee Barnes, Evans Tool & Die and Evans Metal Stamping & Laser Cutting
[00:00:00] Dee Barnes: So this past year we added the laser metal fabrication division, which allows us to do low volume. We can do one of something or 500 or 5000 of something without having to build a die, which takes, 10 to 12 weeks to build that tool. So quick turnaround. We have ability to serve our customers and I’m excited about the future of our company in that way because now our high-volume customers, they also have low volume work prototyping things that we can add value to our current customers.
[00:00:29] But we also can do all kinds of things that aren’t even in our metal stamping side, which just comes with laser and welding and fabricating anything. And I’m excited because it’s endless. There’s unlimited creativity you can have with metal fabrication. You can build and make anything. If you can cut it and weld it and bend it, you can make just about anything.
[00:00:51] And that’s exciting because when our customers come with an idea, you can just fab it up and see if it works. And it works. And hopefully your volume gets so high that you turn into building a die to make something. So that’s exciting for us.
