The June issue of FAB Shop Magazine is here with a cover article focused on HVAC – just in time for the higher temps that are finally sweeping the nation. As everyone is cranking their ACs, our cover article puts a spotlight on new plasma equipment that can make the job of cutting ductwork so much easier. Likewise, another featured article in this issue highlights a servo-electric punch press that can be quite beneficial for HVAC manufacturers.

The issue also offers advice for how to reduce the costs associated with rework. And for those fabricators that could benefit from a small waterjet machine for prototyping and small batch runs, there’s an article for that, too. Furthermore, for those looking to improve customer response times, we included an article on a powerful ERP system that has proven successful in manufacturing operations. Last, but not least, be sure to check out our special website showcase section that serves as a helpful resource for anyone looking to improve their operations with new equipment and services.
