Midland to be Part of the Largest Laser Tour in America!

We are very excited to announce that Midland Metal Products has been chosen as a host location for the Fabricators and Manufacturers Association's (FMA) upcoming "LaserFab 2010" event. The event begins on September 21st and runs through September 23rd 2010.

Midland Metal Products is at the leading edge of metal fabricating technology. We will be demonstrating how our equipment, capabilities, and processes give us the unique ability to meet our customer's requirements. This includes areas such as compressed timelines and flexibility as well as the ability to deliver on shorter, more specialized, and longer run projects.

Midland Metal Products Adds New Technology to Press Brake Department

In a continuing effort to gain technological superiority and streamline the production process Midland Metal Products has recently added two brand new CNC-controlled precision hydraulic press brakes, and FOUR new CNC control upgrades to existing precision machinery.

The machines and new controls have a unique
feature. Instead of a long-handed manual input of numeric dimensions and commands, the program is generated DIRECTLY from a 2-dimensional or 3-dimensional CAD file sourced from our engineering department or, perhaps YOU, our customer.

This seamless integration of electronic part files eliminates translation errors generated by incorrect measurement of the physical part or paper print. In other words: the machine will bend the part EXACTLY as it is designed. Furthermore, the technology makes use of our extensive tooling library and makes suggestions for the most efficient method of part creation. We are also made instantly aware of any physical limitations or other errors that may come about during a production situation. This establishes accurate prototyping and part costs; the increased efficiency has reduced set-up time and increased capacity and throughput.
