Customer Success

Estes had the privilege of partnering with the Hitzfield Group to fabricate over a thousand custom exterior wall panels for the newly constructed Fishers, IN Fire Station. The Hitzfield Group, which designs, engineers, and installs state-of-the-art building envelopes and structural façade components on a national scale, has partnered with companies such as FedEx and Eli Lilly on various construction projects. Here’s what Hirzfield said about partnering with Estes:

“Estes’ commitment to lean fabrication methods through automated processes is evident by how quickly and efficiently they were able to complete our project, and is also proven in the quality of their product. Using their automated systems, we were assured that each panel was fabricated per specifications and within tolerance. Of the 1,003 wall panels that Estes made for the Fishers Fire Station, not a single remake was required – a true testament to their commitment to fabricating quality parts.”

Automated Fabrication Cell

Salvagnini Automatic Retrieval and Auto Store System

Max Velocity is Estes’ automated fabrication cell powered by Salvagnini. Its automated nature and advanced technology provide exceptional quality, shorter lead-times, and improved on-time delivery. The Estes Max Velocity takes cellular manufacturing to new levels. Every machine in the cell is fully automated, including the automatic storage and retrieval system – the MV Warehouse, which is the system’s backbone.

S4 Punching & Shearing

Salvagnini S4 Punching and Shearing Center

Our Salvagnini S4 machines combine the punching versatility of a turret press with the blanking capabilities of a shear. Not only does the S4’s automation provide around-the-clock activity, but customers also benefit from cost reductions that would otherwise go to pay for labor. Precision and speed are ensured through digital communication and the center’s advanced control techniques.

P4 Panel Bender

Estes Max Velocity - powered by Salvagnini

Our Salvagnini CNC P4 Panel Bender is a fully automated machine that bends blanks into their final shape. Its advanced capabilities allow it to form highly complex parts in a single setup. Unlike traditional press brakes that require different tools for different bend configurations, tooling in this panel bender adjusts automatically from bend to bend and part to part. Accuracy is unparalleled because of the panel bender’s integrated advanced sensors.
