Innovative Peening Systems (IPS) has moved into its new manufacturing facility in Braselton, Georgia. Heavy metal fabrication, machining, robot assembly, component assembly, machine assembly, electrical panel building, and contract shot peening and abrasive blasting work areas are housed in the new plant. In addition, IPS now has a larger airfoil coating shop to accommodate their work in graphite coatings, sacrificial airfoil wear coatings, and airfoil moment weight scaling for blade radial placement. The building also holds two 20,000-pound overhead bridge cranes. Both cranes have a 340-foot runway and a 22- foot hook height. The cranes move heavy components into the assembly areas for faster machine construction. Building a new facility is a large undertaking for a manufacturer and we wanted to know more about the project. Dan Dickey, Chief Executive Officer at IPS, generously answered our questions about the building and the company.
