Fiber laser technology, automation and an integrated bending system ensures peak productivity.
Headquartered in San Diego, California, Pacific Maritime Industries (PMI) is recognized as a leading provider of quality products and services
for the U.S. Navy and maritime fleet. To meet constantly increasing demands for high quality and quick delivery, Pacific Maritime partnered with
AMADA. General Manager, Robert Kirkpatrick comments on how PMI leverages AMADA’s fiber laser technology and advanced automation to
reach unprecedented levels of productivity and flexibility. “To realize the full potential of AMADA’s ENSIS fiber laser, we also purchased an ASFH automated material handling/storage system. The reduction in cycle times, the capability to cut a wide range of materials and thicknesses with a single machine,
and the ability to add rush jobs quickly and easily, gives us an extremely powerful competitive edge.”
To better respond to customers’ demands for high-mix, low volume lot sizes, PMI also purchased the HG 1003 ATC integrated bending
system. The Automatic Tool Changer (ATC) is equipped with 18 stockers for dies and 15 for punches to ensure maximum flexibility
and responsiveness. “Thanks to the Automatic Tool Changer, even with our most complex setups, the longest tool change we’ve experienced
is 2 minutes 40 seconds. The ATC provides for quick and easy response to rush jobs and consistent part production from operator to operator.
Our extensive in-house manufacturing capability is built on a solid foundation of talent and leading-edge equipment. Our long-term partnership
with AMADA has been instrumental in Pacific Maritime’s continued growth and success.”
“We had been working on a $1.5 million
bid for nearly a year.

The 2k W ENSIS 3015 AJ provides fiber and CO2 capabilities in a single machine. ENSIS cuts
thin materials 4 times faster than CO2 laser and is able to cut up to 1" thick mild steel. The
ASFH automated material handling and storage system maximizes productivity by enabling 24/7
operation during night and weekend shifts. The HG 1003 with Automatic Tool Changer (ATC)
and AMADA’s patented tooling, combine to ensure extremely precise and economical bending
results while tripling or quadrupling the number of tooling setups per day.
