Moore Machine Tools has built a reputation on the quality of machinery coupled with industry leading service. This is what led Western Fence Company, a leading provider of quality fencing solutions based in Salt Lake City, Utah to contact us for their machinery needs. They recently experienced our commitment firsthand with their acquisition of a press brake and shear. This strategic investment has not only streamlined their production processes but has also positioned them to continue as an industry leader in delivering superior products to their customers.

The Company

Western Fence Company, a 5th generation family-owned operation, has been a staple in the Salt Lake City valley since 1948. With a storied tradition of fence installation and manufacturing that includes working with Sears Roebuck and the Kathleen Robinson Huntsman Residence YWCA. This tradition includes hundreds of residential and industrial manufactured and installed fencing as well. Western Fence has built a reputation for quality through its offerings of fabricated materials and reliable installation throughout Utah, Wyoming, and Idaho.

The Machines

When Western Fence contacted Moore Machine Tools, they were in the market for a press brake to bend baseplates and post inserts for their custom-fabricated fencing. After consulting with our National Sales Director, Dakota, Western Fence decided to pursue a 13’ x 245T press brake to meet their needs. This press brake came equipped with the Delem DA 66T 3D control system, Servo X/R and Z1/Z2 axis backguage, automated CNC crowning, DSP Laser Safety, and quick clamps.

The fabrication manager at Western Fence, Benjamin Hall, noticed an immediate impact upon the installation of the press brake. “The installation was easy, ” he said. Additionally, he noted they were up and running with our included training within a few hours after install. The operation was smooth and increased their capabilities for the manufacturing process of Western Fence. But, Benjamin was still trying to improve processes.

Due to the successful installation and training process of the press brake, Benjamin reached out to Moore Machine Tools just three months later to get information on a hydraulic shear. Once again working with Dakota, the team helped Western Fence Company decide on a 13’ x 5/16″ MasterCut CNC shear. This machine includes the Delem CNC touchscreen control with automatic blade gap and rake angle adjustments. Finally, sheet support systems were added to help maximize the usability of the shear in the fabrication shop of Western Fence.

Much like the press brake installation, the shear was up and running quickly. Benjamin was trained and cutting quickly. Our technician, Chris, gave him the rundown on maintenance to ensure the machine stays operating at its peak capability as well. “They all are very knowledgeable in their profession and answered any question I could throw at them” he said of the training.

It has been a great experience from start to finish. The machine arrived when promised and in good shape. The checklist of things to be done before the technician arrived was clear and concise. The technician arrived on schedule and was very knowledgeable. After Tanner had completed his final assembly and calibration he provided great training that was never rushed. We will not hesitate to utilize this company in the future if the need arises again. Thanks you for a great experience.

Moore Machine set us up with a great machine. They took the time to make sure we were comfortable with and could be productive with the machine before training ended.
