Engineering / CAD Systems

Our programming department utilizes FabriWIN for Windows. FabriWIN takes advantage of the latest Microsoft Windows 32 bit multitasking operating system for fast, trouble-free operation. This program is capable of generating code for virtually all punching and cutting machines.

FabriWIN allows our programmers to generate accurate N/C programs that reduce programming time and machine run time. Sheet layout displays all information required for efficient analysis of run time before any metal is punched or cut. Also, the software writes a N/C program with a click of the mouse preventing the necessity of entering machine codes or performing post processing.

Global Shop Solutions

In addition, Getchell and Son also uses licensed software provided by Global Shop Solutions.

Newest Manufacturing Technology allows Getchell and Son to improve customers "on-time deliveries" and "enhance productivity".

By utilizing a Bar-Coded system, Getchell and Son has complete accountabilty of customers orders throughout the entire production process.
