On March 29th, MVS Metals celebrated making their 1,000th cutting table with a lunch for their employees. 

Recognizing the pain and expense of cleaning cutting tables our employees in the shop worked to improve the process. Our shop went through several versions of tables including both dry cutting and water tables, each with improved cleaning capabilities. They finely came up with what would be known as “The Slagger”, an automated cutting table system. The table was improved to include an evacuation system that when connected to dust collector that would collect the smoke and fumes from the cutting process.  

MVS Metals began marketing cutting tables in 1999 with the partnership with Messer Cutting Systems who sells our tables as complete turnkey systems including the cutting machine and dust collector. With Messer’s help, we have sold tables primarily in North America and around the world. 

Also at the lunch two long time employees that are retiring were honored, Larry Minter and Shari Blackburn.
