Customer Success Stories

NPX Medical

The performance and throughput of their StarCut Tube has enabled NPX to be ever more successful and they recently took delivery of a second StarCut Tube machine to meet the fast-growing demand for their services. These services include the full gamut from design, through programing, cutting, forming, post processing and inspection.

The StarCut Tube has proved itself to be a great workhorse machine for NPX with not a single service call required in the past 18 months of near continuous operation.
Mike Brenzel President, NPX Medical

Microtech Welding

Use of the Coherent Manual Welder at Microtech Welding has increased their throughput, and the company now runs multiple systems in production. The laser beam welder has also improved weld quality over GTAW, and reduced the need for post weld finishing.

The Select Manual Welder delivers just the right level of automation for our type of production. Using it, we develop our process, save the settings, make a fixture, and then just repeatedly run the program. It has simplified and sped our manufacturing, and also delivers superior results.
