Las Vegas company installs an OPTIPLEX that has allowed them more customers and given their shop new capabilities

P&S Metals and Supply Co. OPTIPLEX "The gift that keeps on giving"

P&S Metals and Supply Co. based out of Las Vegas, NV does highway signage that varies from artistic animal sculptures to industrial freeway signage. The conflict P&S Metals has was that they needed a newer machine that could cut 1" plate, and their customers are very particular about having very clean and specific holes in the material.

Gene Perry, owner of P&S Metals and Supply Co., found out about Mazak's lasers by word of mouth from a Mazak customer in Oregon. After chatting with his acquaintance, he knew that he needed to see what Mazak was all about.  

P&S recently purchased an OPTIPLEX 3015 4kW CO2 machine. This machine has already made a huge improvement for P&S. The machine cuts 2.5 times faster than their previous machine (cutting the same parts) which is making P&S more productive. They love their Mazak laser so much that they actually painted the room that their machine is in, the Mazak colors!
