TAB Industries Streamlines Design, Manufacturing of TAB Wrapper Tornado

Metalworking manufacturer TAB Industries, LLC, Reading, Pa. has saved $250,000.00 in annual laser cutting costs incurred for the production of the TAB Wrapper Tornado line of orbital wrapping machinery. Replacing multiple outside laser cutting services with the purchase of a Bescutter 3300 W Fiber Optic Laser cutting system, TAB Industries produces more than 40 different parts for each orbital wrapper from the signature 100-inch wrapping ring and protective machine guarding panels to a variety of latches, clips, plates and other small components while streamlining the entire process. Lead times for parts production have been cut by approximately two weeks, shortening lead times for TAB Wrapper Tornado deliveries by a similar margin, according to Andy Brizek, vice president of sales and marketing for the TAB Wrapper Tornado.

In addition to saving on costs and speeding production, the switch to TAB Industries for laser cutting has yielded several unexpected rewards. With easy access to low-cost laser cutting, Brizek quickly designs, tests and implements upgrades to the orbital wrapping machines, such as reengineering a series of brackets to allow faster production, and time required for supervision and quality assurance has been reduced dramatically.

“We want the accuracy and appearance of laser cutting but needed more speed and certainty to feel confident in meeting our deadlines,” says Brizek. “Using TAB Industries for laser cutting allows us to take control over our costs and keep our position as the quality innovator offering a low price point for orbital wrapping.”
