IMM Quality Boat Lifts Invests in Additional CNC Machines!
Fort Myers, FL May 11, 2018 – IMM Quality Boat Lifts, the world’s leading manufacturer of boat lifts, continues to grow and expand capacity to meet strong customer demand. This new equipment forms part of our ongoing $2.5 million equipment and facility expansion initiative that began last year. The expansion initiative is a tremendous opportunity to continue to improve our industry-leading machining, fabrication and welding capabilities and reflects a very proactive stance to keep IMM Quality Boat Lifts growing and thriving in 2018 and beyond.
“We are humbled by the confidence and trust our customers have bestowed upon us,” said Mike Nanda, President, IMM Quality Boat Lifts. “We are committed to honoring that trust with continued investment in our production capabilities, capacity and our employees. We are serious about providing the highest quality products with the fastest turnaround time in the industry.”
This month, the company has added a Haas super-speed VF-4SS CNC vertical mill, a Haas GR-510 CNC gantry router and a GEKA Hydracrop 110SD CNC combination punch press and iron worker. We have also added 10-ton overhead cranes to our top-beam assembly department, to our welding and fabrication department and to our delivery fleet loading area to allow the fabrication of much larger projects.
At IMM Quality Boat Lifts, we make all of the parts that go into our boat lifts ourselves, and that is why we are a big believer in computer numeric control (CNC) machining in our factories. In a CNC manufacturing process, the dimensions for a given part are specified with computer-aided design (CAD) software and imported into a machine to control the movement of the machining tools. CNC machining overcomes the limitations of manual control where live operators are needed to prompt and guide the machining tools via levers, buttons, and wheels. CNC manufacturing allows for consistency in parts production that would be difficult, if not impossible, to replicate manually. Our increased CNC manufacturing capacity will improve final product performance by offering superior part quality, best-in-class lead time, and unsurpassed on-time delivery.
