"The bar code scanner has been a big plus. Our CAD department can just hand the machine operator the drawing and it’s got a bar code on there and they’re able to scan it and hit the start button. It has greatly simplified the process on the manufacturing floor. The bar code scanner reduced the possibility of errors and also expedited the process."

- Bob Mallory, Southwest Architectural Castings
