Are you in need of an extremely durable and high-resolution nameplate? Look no further than Metalphoto. This incredibly dependable and innovative material and process is gaining recognition in its uses for nameplates, placards, serial plates, asset tags, and more. GMN Aerospace has been supplying Metalphoto parts to our customers in the aerospace industry for decades. Metalphoto nameplates are crisp, clear, and easy to produce in high quantities with variable images/data.
GMN Aerospace recently received a new metalphoto machine known as the Model 80 series processor. The Model 80 is a dry-to-dry plate processor that performs all processes for developing, fixing, water rinsing, and drying of plates. This is an ideal machine for GMN Aerospace’s high output and high quality needs.
Last month, Horizons Imaging Systems Group (ISG) announced that GM Nameplate (GMN) achieved Certified Metalphoto® Converter status. As part of GMN, GMN Aerospace has been a converter of Metalphoto products for more than 40 years. Only the largest and most advanced converters are eligible to apply for Metalphoto Converter certification.
2014 was an eventful year for GMN Aerospace. We celebrated our 60th anniversary, welcomed new members to our team, as well as expanded our machinery and capabilities. As we celebrate the New Year, let’s review what a great year 2014 was at GMN Aerospace!
New look of GMN Aerospace
We kicked off the new year releasing a new look and website for GMN Aerospace. The website was redone to be easier to navigate and better reflect GMN Aerospace’s value proposition. In addition, it features better design, new photos, and improved content.
GMN Aerospace is proud to announce the first production parts to come off of our new Computer to Plate (CTP) machine in our metalphoto department. As we mentioned in an earlier blog we qualified the new machine in March. After we received approval from the Boeing Aircraft Company for BAC parts, six initial parts were selected as our flagship run, all of which shipped last month.
As we mentioned in the blog “looking into 2014,” we recently purchased a Computer to Plate (CTP) machine for our metalphoto department and just finished qualifying the new device. The new equipment will reduce cycle times of our metalphoto products by eliminating steps in the process.
Earlier this week we posted about the highlights of the last year at GMN Aerospace. While, its only January we already have a lot to look forward to in 2014.
CTP Qualified – At the end of last year we purchased a new Computer to Plate machine for our metalphoto department. We are excited to announce that we just qualified the new equipment. We are excited for the many benefits the new equipment will bring to our customers this year.
2013 was a great year for GMN Aerospace. We had some very exciting milestones and events. As we look ahead to the next year, let’s look back on everything that happened in the last year.
