AGAM Attended SGIA Expo 2011

AGAM Attended SGIA Expo 2011

AGAM’s booth at the SGIA Expo, October 19-21, 2011 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Every year at the SGIA Expo, hundreds of exhibitors showcase a broad range of equipment available in the special printing and image technology market. The SGIA Expo brings thousands of attendees from around the world who want to get acquainted with leaders in the industry. The Expo was in New Orleans, Louisiana where AGAM exhibited alongside industry leaders such as Hewlett-Packard, Emerson, and Fujifilm.

Laser Cutting and Powdercoating all done at AGAM Plant in Elkridge, MD

AGAM’s booth is an example of what can be accomplished using the AGAM System. We designed, manufactured, and assembled our entire booth (excluding the printing of the SEG fabrics) at our new 110,000 square-foot plant right outside of Baltimore, Maryland. We do all of the cutting, punching, tapping, welding, bending, drilling and powder coating at our plant.

Therefore, the possibilities are almost endless at AGAM. Simply send us a sketch of your idea, and we will help you engineer your design with our system (free of charge, it is part of our service). We will then provide you with a quote. Once you have approved the quote, AGAM Aluminum Modular System will manufacture the design and send you a Ready-to-Assemble (RTA) kit. Alternatively, if you have already worked with AGAM and only need a few extra extrusions/parts we are happy to supply those as well.

Ettiene, AGAM’s Vice President of the Western Region, shows an attendee how we used SEG fabric corners to create the hanging cube above our booth

During the expo, AGAM had the opportunity to meet hundreds of these attendees, ranging from exhibit builders to fabric printers. Many attendees enjoyed handling our extrusion samples and imagining the display possibilities.

Our newest extrusions, the FH1490 Extrusion, and the FH1490 End Plate, which are used to create seamless Silicone Edge (SEG) fabric corners, have many capabilities. As an example of AGAM’s newest extrusions, we created a standing cube display and hanging cube above our booth.

At AGAM we value innovation and customer service. These AGAM are deeply incorporated in our approach to new product development.  Taking into account the latest in industry trends and client feedback we aim to create the most dynamic aluminum modular system.

A recent improvement to the the AGAM aluminum modular system came in the re-evaluation of a popular accessory: the L Shelf Bracket.

Product inconsistencies from using punch press tool

The L Shelf Bracket is used to provide a platform for mounting shelves. In the past, AGAM manufactured the tool in house the with a punch press and long strips of steel. At the time, this technique was the most cost-effective and utilized the latest in technology to produce the L Shelf Bracket in large quantities. However, after each use, it was necessary to dismantle the punch press for sharpening.

AGAM Invests in the Latest Laser Technology for Aluminum Modular System Product Redesigns

We needed to find a solution to reduce labor hours and to maximize accuracy and efficiency in production. We decided the best solution was to use the laser, a process referred to as “lights out manufacturing”.

The Redesigned Laser Cut AGAM L Shelf Bracket

Using the laser required a re-think of the L Shelf Bracket. Each piece is now not cut as a single piece, but rather it is part of two sub-frames that surround the L Shelf Bracket and holds the group of parts together. One sub-frame is discarded and recycled and the other holds the group of parts in place for tapping and bending.

The Benefits of AGAM’s Laser Technology with the L Shelf Bracket

L Shelf Brackets made with AGAM’s laser technology

With the use of the laser technology, we were able to control quality and accuracy while decreasing production time and the number of non-compliant parts were left behind. We also used the laser beam to control the placement of parts on the bender. Angles are now consistent, the operator is safely guided through the bending process, and the CAM program is saved on the machine, which is used each time such part needs to be made.

We feel laser technologies have raised our dedication to quality to a new level. Not only has the quality of the product improved but, we can now make subtle changes to the parts quickly and efficiently rather than investing in and waiting for a new tool for the punch press. We can now adapt to the market quickly, saving AGAM time and money so we can pass these savings along to our customers.
