Modern Piping Provides a Look Inside Their Fabrication Facilities & Processes December 10, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. EST – Register Today!

November 11, 2020

When site restrictions were enforced this past March, many contractors turned towards their fabrication facilities to keep their projects on track. Fabrication not only allows for a controlled environment with greater safety and oversight, it also allows companies like Modern Piping in Cedar Rapids, Iowa to leverage their productivity gains at a higher rate and even work two shifts to keep their work on pace with their schedule. 

Due to the impacts of COVID-19, MCAA has decided to postpone their 2020 Fabrication Conference to 2021. In lieu of an in-person conference in 2020, the MCAA Fabrication Committee is working to provide MCAA members with a virtual sneak peek inside some of the most innovative fabrication facilities.  

Over the last ten years, Modern Piping has been pushing the leading edge of fabrication by applying lean manufacturing concepts, developing software that digitizes their process and automates not only their digital workflow, but also their actual production. This has resulted in a dramatic productivity gain seen throughout their entire construction process. 

On Thursday, December 10, Modern Piping’s Fabrication Shop Manager, Jim Tedow will be joined by MCAA’s Director of Innovative Technologies, Sean McGuire, and MSUITE’s CEO, Britton Langdon, to discuss their processes, tools and techniques in fabrication. This interactive session will include videos from Modern Piping’s fabrication facilities and a discussion on manufacturing concepts utilized at Modern. Attendees will see how they have streamlined their processes from design to the field. Registration for the MCAA Fabrication Virtual Mini – Modern Piping session is complimentary and limited to MCAA members only.
