Additionally, pallet changes only take 60 sec., optimizing cut time and giving Matrix more capacity to branch into new markets.
“Our goal is to remain cost effective for our customers while delivering the highest quality and quicker turnaround,” explains Ryan Willette, Matrix sales director, noting that the addition has helped Matrix meet increasing customer demands and provide the opportunity to expand its customer base into newer industries, particularly aerospace and defense. “With the increased range of cutting parameters, we now are able to process larger components without having to perform multiple setups.”
