Imagine this: you’ve purchased your dream lakefront property, but the breathtaking view comes with a challenge – a steep slope that makes reaching the water a hassle. A reliable and durable hillside tram can solve this problem. However, with so many options on the market, how do you ensure you’re investing in a tram that will truly stand the test of time?

At Marine Innovations, manufacturing excellence is at the core of everything we do. We don’t just build hillside trams; we craft them with meticulous attention to detail, guaranteeing they become a seamless extension of your dream property for years to come.

The Power of In-House Manufacturing: Consistency You Can Trust

When it comes to quality control, there’s no substitute for keeping the entire manufacturing process in-house. Here at Marine Innovations, we take complete ownership of every step, from the initial design concept to final installation. This allows our experienced team to maintain a watchful eye over every detail, minimizing errors and ensuring your hillside tram meets not just industry standards, but our own rigorous benchmarks.

In contrast to some manufacturers who outsource various stages of production, we believe in fostering a culture of expertise within our own team. This translates to a seamless workflow, where each team member anticipates the next step, resulting in efficient manufacturing and consistent quality in every tram we build.

A Team You Can Trust: Experience Makes the Difference

One of the cornerstones of our manufacturing excellence is our team. We’re proud to boast a workforce comprised of long-term employees who are not just skilled in their trades, but also passionate about building top-of-the-line hillside trams. Their years of experience translate into a deep understanding of the specific challenges and intricacies involved in tram design and construction. This wealth of knowledge ensures not only efficient production but also the ability to anticipate potential issues and proactively address them before they arise. Plus, with a seasoned team, you eliminate the need for constant training of new recruits. Our team members are invested in their craft and take immense pride in their work, a dedication that is evident in the quality of every tram we produce.

Precision Makes Perfect: Unleashing the Power of CNC Technology

Marine Innovations CNC mill Modern technology plays a vital role in our commitment to manufacturing excellence. We utilize state-of-the-art CNC machinery for both design and production. This advanced technology allows us to create highly precise and intricate designs, ensuring a perfect fit for your specific needs. Think of CNC machines as the ultimate power tools. Our arsenal includes bandsaws, plasma cutters, waterjet cutting centers, milling machines, and press brakes. Each machine is meticulously programmed to operate with unmatched precision, resulting in:

  • Efficient use of raw materials: CNC technology eliminates human error in cutting, minimizing waste and maximizing the value we get from every piece of material.
  • Consistent results, every single time: The programmed nature of CNC machines ensures that every component of your hillside tram is cut and shaped to the exact specifications, guaranteeing a perfect fit and consistent quality across all our products.

Jigs for Efficiency: Streamlining the Welding Process

Beyond high-tech machinery, we also leverage the power of specialized tools like welding jigs. These custom-designed fixtures act as guides during the welding process, ensuring that each weld is placed precisely and consistently. Jigs not only maintain a flawless product design but also significantly speed up production.

Imagine the efficiency of having a tool that practically guarantees a perfect product every time. This translates into faster turnaround times and ultimately, allows us to deliver your dream tram sooner.

The Drive for Continuous Improvement: Never Settling for Good Enough
