Computer assisted lofting, followed by automatic part cutting, makes a lot of sense and it makes the job easier. Designs are CAD lofted for computer controlled cutting and marking.
Once designed, we can facilitate the cutting of your parts by referring you for a quote from a reputable cutting firm. The firm will cut your parts and have them waiting for you on a pallet ready for shipment or pickup.
From computer lofting data, burn sheets are prepared with parts nested to minimize waste. Parts are identified along with notes on production operations. Details include notches, brake lines, item part numbers and descriptions.
