New Wire Marine Retools for Switch Panel Market

Press Release
Thursday, May 09, 2013

New Wire Marine, a Charleston, S.C. based designer of marine electrical systems, has bought a high-tech Computer Numerical Control (CNC) cutting tool.

New Wire Marine’s new CNC machine can cut any shape with high precision on a 2D surface, says Eric Steele, company owner, adding that it affords his company the ability to raster engrave stunning graphics and detailed logos and text into its switch panels.

The company hopes to fill a very large gap in the OEM (original equipment manufacturer) switch panel market by becoming an affordable vendor and leading supplier of custom boat switch panels to smaller boat builders, he said.

"We are really excited to bring logo engraving and backlighting capability to our boat manufacturer customers," Steele said. “The feedback we've been getting so far has been extremely positive. We've been helping the do-it-yourself marketplace for years, and I'm excited to be able to offer these great products to commercial boat builders.”

"This machine is incredible; accurate to four thousandths of an inch,” said Steele. “The products that our reverse engraving process is putting out have truly been incredible. I'm impressed every time I see a part pulled out of the machine."

The new tool also makes it possible for New Wire Marine to cut switch panel substrates in house and provide rapid prototyping and quick turnaround times on custom products. Lastly, the tool also allows New Marine the ability to produce high-end custom boat switch panel plates for the smaller boat builders that have been ignored by switch panel manufacturers.
