  • Section 179 of the IRS Tax Code allows a business to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment purchased during the tax year. A business may deduct up to $1,000,000 in 2019 with purchase prices amounting to no more than $2,500,000. Bonus depreciation can be used after the $1 million cap.

    The new law increases the bonus depreciation percentage from 50 percent to 100 percent for qualified property acquired and placed in service before 1/1/2020

    The definition of property eligible for 100 percent bonus depreciation was expanded to include used qualified property acquired and placed in service before 1/1/2020

    For example, if you purchase a machine at a discounted show special price at Fabtech for $200,000, the effective cost of the machine for 2019 could be $158,000 (42,000 cash savings at 21% tax rate). 

    Universal Tool & Engineering is an industry leader in CNC tube benders, CNC tube lasers, and automated workcells. UTE will be in booth #D46568 providing demonstrations of our automated workcells. A UTE representative will be present with more information on our full line of tube fabrication equipment and solutions to your problems.

  • The 3D laser tube cutting system produces high quality parts in a variety of shapes and sizes. By utilizing its fiber laser cutting technology, this machine can combine many processes onto one platform. With the fully automatic loading system and unloading system this machine can run continuously with minimal operator involvement. Combining all these processes into one machine saves time and cost when processing tubes in large batches yet the machines versatility allows the user to easily make prototypes or small batch production. This machine also utilizes high speed servos for quick and precise positioning which decreases the time for non value added movements. These High speed servos in conjunction with the powerful fiber laser can decrease part cutting times and increase production allowing for a higher return on investment for the end user.

    Key Features:

    • Capable of cutting various metal materials accurately and quickly
    • Automatic tube loading and unloading
    • Automated tube length detection system
    • Automated electric jaw
    • Automatic calibration for cutting head height
    • Automatic parameter adjustment makes operation simple and fast

  • The UTE Select Series is Universal Tool & Engineering’s newest line of CNC Tube Benders with 5 servo axes. This line ranges from 6 mm – 150 mm (5/8″ to 6″) in tube OD sizes. These machines were originally designed for and tested in the demanding automotive exhaust industry. UTE has spent an entire year marrying this proven and reliable technology with the BendPro G2V2 control system. BendPro has become the industry standard control system. Standard machine features include: interface to CAD, CMMs and office PCs, bender simulation, electric carriage boost bending, push/roll bending, tie bars, double/multi stack, low profile bend arm, automatic machine lubrication system, self-diagnostics, air-conditioned electrical enclosure, non-proprietary components.
