MG Goes All Over The World


After doing a careful study of all the rolling machines and section bending machine manufacturers in the world Britoil selected MG in Italy as being able to supply the best and most suitable machines for their needs. They selected an MH325M 4 roll machine that can roll 3 m wide plate of 25 mm thick plates easily. They also purchased an AR200 section bending machine for bending smaller profiles.

Fabtech 2015 - The Fabricator


Three Rolls Fully Hydraulic Synchronized Variable Geometry Bending Machine

Benefits of having all 3 rolls powered directly
1. The plate doesn’t slip during pre-bending
2. You can use the total press power of the top roll
3. The prebending will be absolutely the best possible
4. The side rolls are directly blocked by the Hydraulic Motor and gearbox during the pre-bending.
5. Easier to operate and increase torque power.

Our competitors only have the top roll powerd –while the side rolls have only brakes resulting in no dragging power, less control and harder to operate.

MG Variable Geometry Roll –All three rolls powered to apply the maximum torque; directly driven through planetary gearbox; Top Roll Moves Up and Down as on a Press Brake

Service Providers See Sales Growth Doubling in 2015, ISM Says

Service providers in the U.S. forecast sales growth will almost double next year to 10 percent, according to a survey by the Institute for Supply Management that also showed manufacturers project increased revenue.

The service industries’ forecast compares with a 5.1 percent sales gain they reported for 2014, the Tempe, Arizona-based group said in its semiannnual business outlook survey today. Purchasing managers at factories anticipate sales will grow 5.6 percent in 2015, up from 3.6 percent for 2014.

A strengthening labor market and the plunge in gasoline prices is giving Americans the ability to keep spending, providing support to manufacturing and service industries. The improvement in demand also bodes well for employment and investment in equipment.

Service providers predicted a 1.7 percent increase in staffing levels in 2015, up from a 1.3 percent gain posted since April. Manufacturers projected a 1.5 percent increase next year, up from a 1.2 percent gain since April.

Purchasing managers in manufacturing plan on increasing capital spending by 3.7 percent in 2015, down from a 14.7 percent gain this year. Service industries plan to increase capital investment by 3.8 percent, versus a 3.3 percent gain this year.

“Our forecast calls for a continuation of growth in 2015, building on the momentum reported in 2014,” Bradley Holcomb, chairman of the group’s factory committee, said in a statement.

Purchasing managers at service industries “are optimistic about continued growth in the first half of 2015 compared to the second half of 2014,” Anthony Nieves, chairman of ISM’s non-manufacturing survey committee, said in the statement.

The national report’s information reflects the entire United States, while the regional reports contain primarily regional data from their local vicinities. Also, the information in the regional reports is not used in calculating the results of the national report. The information compiled in this report is for the month of August 2014.

New Orders, Employment and Production Growing
Inventories Growing
Supplier Deliveries Slowing

Tempe, Arizona) — Economic activity in the manufacturing sector expanded in August for the 15th consecutive month, and the overall economy grew for the 63rd consecutive month, say the nation’s supply executives in the latest Manufacturing ISM® Report On Business®.

The report was issued today by Bradley J. Holcomb, CPSM, CPSD, chair of the Institute for Supply Management® (ISM®) Manufacturing Business Survey Committee. “The August PMI® registered 59 percent, an increase of 1.9 percentage points from July’s reading of 57.1 percent, indicating continued expansion in manufacturing. This month’s PMI® reflects the highest reading since March 2011 when the index registered 59.1 percent. The New Orders Index registered 66.7 percent, an increase of 3.3 percentage points from the 63.4 percent reading in July, indicating growth in new orders for the 15th consecutive month.

The Employment Index grew for the 14th consecutive month, registering 58.1 percent, a slight decrease of 0.1 percentage point below the July reading of 58.2 percent. Inventories of raw materials registered 52 percent, an increase of 3.5 percentage points from the July reading of 48.5 percent, indicating growth in inventories following one month of contraction. The August PMI® is led by the highest recorded New Orders Index since April 2004 when it registered 67.1 percent. At the same time, comments from the panel reflect a positive outlook mixed with caution over global geopolitical unrest.”

FABTECH 2014 has Georgia on Its Mind

North America’s Largest Metal Forming, Fabricating, Welding and Finishing Event will be Held at Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center on November 11-13, 2014 

(ATLANTA, July 28, 2014)     FABTECH is flying south for November! North America’s largest metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing event is expected to attract over 27,000 attendees and 1,400 exhibiting companies to the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta on Nov. 11-13.

FABTECH exhibits will include live equipment demonstrations, offering visitors the unique opportunity to see, touch and compare products side-by-side and find cost-saving solutions. Special events at FABTECH 2014 will include (partial list): a keynote presentation on “Creating U.S. Jobs and Bringing Manufacturing Back Home” by Walmart VP for U.S. Manufacturing Cindi Marsiglio; a special panel discussion on “Bridging the Manufacturing Skills Gap with Veterans” to be held on Veterans Day (Nov. 11); a keynote speech by former Pittsburgh Steeler great Rocky Bleier; and a special FABTECH Industry Night at the new College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta.

This year’s FABTECH expo comes against the backdrop of the continued resurgence of manufacturing in the U.S. Recent data shows that manufacturers contributed $2.08 trillion to the economy in 2013, up from $2.03 trillion in 2012. Offering a one-stop shop to source the best products and services from the U.S. and all over the world, FABTECH is an invaluable resource to the continued growth of the sector.

“With 14 million pounds of equipment over 500,000 net square feet of floor space, FABTECH 2014 will be more than 25 percent larger than it was in 2010, the last time the show was held in Atlanta,” said John Catalano, show co-manager at SME. “We’ve had record numbers of attendees at each of our last two shows in Chicago and Las Vegas because there is simply no better way to see new products and technologies than at FABTECH.”

Simultaneously, FABTECH will once again host an educational program designed to enhance attendees’ careers and businesses.

“Beyond the world-class exhibits at this year’s show, attendees can add to their FABTECH experience by registering for more than 100 educational sessions and expert-led presentations,” said Mark Hoper, show co-manager at Fabricators & Manufacturers Association International. “These sessions have become extremely popular, so we encourage attendees to sign up early if they are interested in learning more about the latest industry trends and technology in the metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing industries.”
