Today, in addition to the company’s renowned press brakes, shears, and other metal fabrication equipment, CI makes industrial-duty laser cutters and 3-D printing machines. It sells its equipment to manufacturers all over North America. CI’s Big-Area Additive Manufacturing machines (BAAM) have 3-D printed large objects such as a car, an excavator, and a submarine.
