Med-Fit Systems, Inc., the manufacturer of Nautilus® commercial fitness products, announced that it has recently added a new, $1 million Trumpf 3030 laser to its 300,000-square-foot manufacturing plant in Independence, Va.
The 31,000-pound German-engineered flatbed laser, which was made in the U.S., complements the existing automated tube laser and robotic welding machinery in Med-Fit Systems’ Virginia facility. According to Dean Sbragia, the CEO of Med-Fit Systems, the new Trumpf laser gives the company the ability to expand its cardio and strength production capability.
“Worldwide demand for our products is strong,” said Dean Sbragia, the CEO of Med-Fit Systems. “The addition of the new machinery and personnel will allow us to accommodate growth and produce even higher-quality products. Our new 10-series cardio and innovative K2 vertical climber are major contributors to our growth, and the new Trumpf laser enhances our ability to expand both our strength and cardio production capability.”
The new Trumpf laser will also enable the ecologically-conscientious company to manufacture their products greener, giving Med-Fit Systems the ability to use more water and steam, rather than chemicals — in the process, leaving a smaller carbon footprint, less energy and chemical usage, and less waste.
