Recently, we were asked to create a custom palm tree design for the Palmetto Expressway in Florida. The project awarded us the opportunity to implement some new tool making strategies that will increase our range of production capabilities for future projects.
We were able to use our CNC machine to rapidly create templates from customer drawings. Further, because the liner needed to match up to an existing wall, we were able to expertly match photos from the customer and tool our piece to be a direct match to the pre-existing architecture.
Because the extra large panel was designed to minimize seams in the wall, we had to get innovative with our shipping methods as well. To save the customer costly oversized permit fees on a flatbed, our production staff created a triangular brace that allowed us to tilt the panel onto a standard 8′ wide truck. This oversized 120″ x 112″ panel was a challenge from start to finish that allowed both our engineers and production crew to push boundaries and think on their feet!
