Fabrication Shops Choose MTI Systems Costimator(r) Cost Estimating Software for Quoting


Yetter Manufacturing, Ad-Vance Magnetics, Inc., and Carver Machine Works are all fabrication companies (fab shops) that specialize in fabricating parts and assemblies out of raw metal materials such as carbon, stainless steel, and aluminum. The main fabrication processes are cutting (sheer, laser, plasma, waterjet), bending (press brake) and assembly (welding, mechanical, electrical).

“Many fabricators have no systematic, scientific way of estimating labor hours, instead of relying on the experience of their estimators – which can lead to drastic inconsistencies in their quotes,” comments David LaJoie, Product Manager at MTI Systems. “Costimator has formula-driven and time tested cost models that enable estimators to quickly generate quotes that are both consistent, from estimator to estimator, and accurate – which is key to continuously winning profitable business.”

Yetter Manufacturing with more than 84 years of solutions for agriculture is recognized as the leader in the fabrication industry for designing planter attachments, precision fertilizer placement tools, and bulk seed handling products.

Carver Machine Works is an ASME certified fabrication manufacturer and re-manufacturer of equipment and components specializing in Titanium, Hastelloy, Inconel, Stainless, Nickel and various Nickel Alloys. They offer extensive welding capabilities including a full arrangement of standard processes and qualified procedures.

Ad-Vance Magnetics, Inc. is a world leader in solving magnetic shielding problems for the sheet metal fabrication industry. This fab shop manufactures custom fabricated magnetic shields and offers magnetic shielding materials in sheet and foil form.
