May. 9, 2017We have added a new Pressbrake

In our effort to continually stay on the leading edge of technology, HPM has added a new Pressbrake to our fleet of Pressbrakes.

This pressbrake has state of the art light curtain technology that not only assures that our operators are safe but adds speed to the process.

We will add shop floor images once the installation has been completed.

It is a great addition and we look forward to using it to better service your sheetmetal fabrication needs.

Mar. 30, 2017Todays Fun Fact

Many people, myself included, are fascinated with LARGE numbers.. so today I thought I would share a few BIG numbers.

The question of the day, and the topic of todays Fun Fact is this..

Not counting the Sun, which star is the closest to our planet Earth?

The answer is: Alpha Centauri..

It's part of a cluster of stars in that part of our Solar System..

So how far is it away (ps - here come the BIG numbers)?

In simple numbers it is 4.24 light years away.. not too far, right..

The 618 MSPe models have the multi-insertion Turret Insertion Systems (TIS).  This allows us the ability to create a "work cell" on one machine instead of needing two or more machines for one part.  According to our hardware supervisor, these new machines are very user friendly.

Jan. 4, 2017New Year's Resolutions

New Year’s resolutions allow us a way to look back on the previous year and make choices on how we want the new year to be.  Did you make any?  The internet is full of stories on what the best resolutions are, tips on how to keep them, and much more.  I read one article that said you need to treat resolutions like workplace goals – keep them Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely.  One of my favorite ways to set goals/resolutions is to picture myself three months from now – what do I look like, who is surrounding me, how do I feel.  Then every three months do a goal check an
