J&C Engineering designs, prototypes, and manufactures products for a variety of industrial industries. The Catrinta family owns and operates J&C, which has built their business around several patents for automotive parts, heavy machinery, and hydraulics. J&C added a used EZ Cut CNC plasma cutting table to their fabrication shop specifically for prototyping and other R&D projects. This has allowed the Catrintas to easily fabricate sheet metal while keeping their cost to a minimum. They also found their CNC plasma system useful for making jigs and even cutting parts for the maintaing their job shop.
