It is with great sadness that we announce the loss of our sales engineer and friend, Scott M. Huck. Scott came onboard the maintecx team in March 2017.
He quickly earned the respect of his customers and of his colleagues through his work ethic and dedication. He was a polite gentleman who was always quick to lend a hand.
Scott was never tired to think of a way to solve a customer’s problem and always came up with a working solution.
Scott is survived by his wife Alana and their daughter Sierra who he adored.
We will miss a true friend and loyal employee!
Scott will never be forgotten.
Memorial services will be held at 2:00 pm on Thursday, July 2, 2020 at Crawford-Osthus Funeral Chapel in Watertown, SD.

SHEET METAL DESIGN SEMINAR – THANKS FOR COMING!
Thank you to all of our customers that took part in the Sheet Metal Design Seminar that took place on December 7 in St. Paul, MN and on December 8 in Sioux Falls, SD. The seminar was received as a great opportunity to learn about the new techniques in laser cutting, bending, punching and laser welding. Especially helpful according to the feedback we received were the group exercises that helped to understand the bending and punching tools and their capabilities. The students also enjoyed drawing the best design for a fire grill that would make it the most efficient in mass producing it. The different array of parts that were shown and discussed was another highlight of the class. The customers gained new ideas in part design and intend to present them to their company. We are happy to have perceived such positive feedback and will offer the class again in the future.

EXCHANGE THE CUTTERS ON YOUR TRUTOOLS
In this episode, Power Tools Sales Engineer, Tony Mirisola answers the question “How do I change the cutters on my TruTool C 160 and C 250 slitting shears?”
CUTTING THROUGH THE SLAG
When a laser is used to cut flat sheet metal, molten material
called slag is produced as a byproduct of the thermal cutting process.
While manufacturers constantly strive to minimize their costs per part,
they often overlook the value of managing slag.

TRUMPF would like to invite you to participate in a live webinar demonstration of our newest press brake, the TruBend 3100. The newly-redesigned TruBend Series 3000 fits perfectly where precision bending is desired, but part complexity does not require the additional features of higher cost models. A newly designed “O” frame, tablet-style control and the latest generation safety system are just some of the new features that make the TruBend 3100 a great addition to any fabrication facility. Join us for a live webinar demonstration that shows the features and performance of this exciting new press brake. The demonstration should last about 30 minutes and will be followed by a question and answer session.
