Capital Machine & Robotics Announces Two Technology Shows

Capital Machine has relocated the company's Atlanta Showroom to a new and larger location. This facility is designated as the new headquarters for Capital Robotics. Capital Robotics and OTC-Daihen have created this new tech center for robotic welding and conventional welding power supplies. The Grand Opening will be held at the new Atlanta Technology Center on September 13-15, 2005.

A second show will be at the Tampa Technology Center on September 27-29, 2005. Tampa remains the home office for Capital Machine and provides the majority of administration support to the branch offices.

Capital has recently opened an all-new technology center in Dallas, TX. This location is larger and better equipped than it's previous facility and better suited for training classes and customer support. An open house event will be announced soon.

Capital Machine Technologies is a machine tool distributor and robotics integrator representing some of the most respected manufacturers in the industry. Capital primarily provides machines, systems and services for the metal fabrication industries including steel, stainless steel or aluminum sheet, plate and structural metals. A broad range of additional markets including stone, granite, marble, glass and many others are served for companies utilizing waterjet cutting.

Capital's product lines address a broad range of manufacturing processes including laser cutting, waterjet cutting, thermal cutting, punching, bending, folding, shearing, robotic welding, robotic material handling, robotic machine tending, sawing, plate rolls, structural rolls, finishing, structural fabricating systems, tooling and support software.

Major lines represented include: Trumpf, Accurpress, OTC-Daihen, MG, Calypso, Hyd-Mech, RAS Systems, Faccin, Ficep, Timesavers, Wila, and Euromac.

Dan Pentaudi, president, and Dan DeBickero, vice president, founded Capital Machine Technologies in 1991. The company currently employs 48 people across the southern U.S. Capital's sales in 2004 exceeded $50 million and future growth is projected at 15-20% rate per year. "Capital Machine and Capital Robotics management has always believed strongly that the keys to growth and success hinge on providing 'value-added' services and support," said Dan Pentaudi. "Capital's commitment is to provide prompt and professional service and support. The combination of four technology showrooms in Tampa, Dallas, Atlanta and Houston provides an ideal setting for customers to review and evaluate new equipment and methods."

In addition to the four technology centers, Capital provides three mobile demonstration units for robotic welding. Each of these units is equipped with a modular robotic welding system capable of being delivered to any factory dock door for a live demonstration. The company also operates a mobile demonstration trailer equipped with a CNC Accurpress Press Brake. This self-contained unit has brought the latest in bending technology to hundreds of shops and Capital intends to place a second unit on the road later in 2005.

Capital measures performance and quality control through a customer feedback system. Each machine installation is followed by a detailed questionnaire that customers are requested to submit. The questionnaire measures a broad range of areas including sales materials, documentation, customer services, installation, training and overall project management. This tool enables Capital to continuously monitor areas for improvement. Capital also provides an employee incentive system the company designates as "First Call Fix". Service staff members are graded for response time and customer satisfaction. Bonus incentives are provided for each successful service call that is 100% completed on the first visit.

Additional services are available to aid customers in their evaluation of new technology such as time studies, weld-cost analysis, productivity analysis, financial justifications, and a comprehensive package of leasing and financing plans.

The company also offers customers advanced training classes, preventive maintenance programs, extended warranties and more. Training is available for specific software and special training classes are available in Spanish as the company employs multiple staff members fluent in Spanish including robotic and welding application engineers.

Capital's primary area of business includes the entire southern United States but the company has also sold and serviced a broad range of machines in Mexico and Puerto Rico with limited sales in Central and South America for companies based in the U.S.

"We believe Capital Machine Technologies is the largest distributor of metal fabricating and robotic welding equipment in the South and perhaps all of North America," said Dan DeBickero. "Our goal is to provide the best tools and services available to customers to both investigate equipment and ultimately support that equipment."
