Precision Engineering Helping Medical Device Industry Thrive

An increase in demand for smaller, patient-portable machines is one of the key projected growth forecasts for the medical device industry. In the next five years, the global medical device market is expected to build to $409.5 billion, a compound annual growth rate of 4.5% from 2018-2023.Read more

Fictitious astronaut on Mars

Nadcap Welding is Key to Getting Humans to Mars

Humans on Mars? The possibility is ever-growing, but getting them there will certainly involve Napcap welding of spacecraft materials. National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program (Nadcap) welding is an exceptionally clean and uniform process used in aerospace projects. Nadcap-certified processes use premium metals due to their higher purity and corrosion-resistance properties. The results includeRead more

Orbital welded part

Morale is key in orbital welding shops, robots or not

Bringing in a robot to perform orbital welding tasks in a manufacturing shop can throw a wrench into the works, as far as morale goes. That is not a concern at Axenics, because almost every weld performed is different, so there is no need for a robot that performs the same weld, day in dayRead more

Pipe bending industry forecast calls for rapid growth through 2022

The global bending machine market is set to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 4.97% through 2022, according to the Pipe Bending Machines Market report released in March 2018 by Technavio, a leading global research company.Read more

Axcelis supplier of the year

Axenics has been a supplier for Axcelis since 1995 – almost 25 years. Each year we meet with them to discuss the industry and the companies’ needs on both sides. It is a way of checking in, wrapping up the previous year and planning for the coming one. This year, however, was a bit different.Read more

Axenics Congratulates our newest US Citizen

The Axenics family extends a huge congratulations to our very own Nelson Hernandez who became a proud citizen of the United States on Friday, March 20, 2018 (and we’d also like to mention that a week later he became a new husband too!). Nelson is a member of our engineering design team and a projectRead more

Weldments and welding services

Types of Weldments Used to Join Piping

When it comes to joining pipes, complex assemblies, gas boxes and other components together, welding is one common method that manufacturers utilize. The weldments used will be based on the material of the pipes and tubes (such as metal vs. plastic), how the tube will be connected, and if there are any additional connections thatRead more

Safety Features Designed into a Gas Panel

Original equipment manufacturers around the world utilize a range of gases in their operations. The type of gas that’s used is based on the desired outcome of that specific process, whether it requires combustion, cutting, coating, treatment or a variety of other applications. Once the appropriate gas is selected, manufacturers look for the most efficientRead more

Custom Tube Bending is Ideal for Plastic Piping Kits

When we think of tube bending, we often associate it with metal manufacturing applications, and soft metals that can be bent in large and small radiuses for different purposes. Yet for many industries, such as certain chemical and life sciences manufacturers, metals are problematic because the chemicals that are being produced can erode the material.Read more

Gas Box Piping: How To Determine the Right Pipe Material

A gas box offers immense benefits to OEMs in a range of industries including those in life sciences, medical devices, semiconductors, and alternative energy. It can speed up production by keeping up a steady pressure of application gases flowing to workstations throughout the production floor. The gas box can also speed up changeover capabilities andRead more
