Offering a unique and patented approach to laser cutting of blanks from coil, LaserCoil Technologies systems enable companies to marry its laser cutting systems with any coil line automation – be it existing equipment currently in production or an investment in new or used equipment. LaserCoil systems are flexible and can be integrated to work with traditional coil feeding equipment and can even be retrofit to existing press feeding lines. This allows users to leverage existing capital equipment investment and lower the cost of laser blanking system implementation while gaining flexibility, speed and a high level of quality.
“We believe that our technology and approach lowers the cost to coil-fed laser blanking as compared to other market solutions, opening up laser blanking viability to a whole new audience of companies who have thought stamping to be their only processing alternative,” said Kim Beck, president of LaserCoil Technologies and Automatic Feed Co. “Whether someone wants to swap out a stamping press for a LaserCoil machine or is interested in a complete laser cutting line inclusive of automation from our related company Automatic Feed, we can provide a solution that works for them.”
LaserCoil systems can process a wide variety of coil material in aluminum, mild steel, the new high-strength steels, and other materials for surface sensitive panels as well as structural components in thicknesses from 0.5 to 3.5mm and up to 2.1 meter wide coil at any length. LaserCoil systems automatically shed scrap during the cutting process to deliver part-ready components for stacking at the end of the line or even with the use of side-stackers.
A LaserCoil system also provides several advantages as compared to press and die blanking. The investment in facilities and equipment is lower as well as the operating cost. In terms of production, the changeover rate is faster, the cut quality is consistent with no edge burr or dross, and the LaserCoil system can process much more complex parts and varied parts in a single run due to its nesting capabilities. The flexibility of the LaserCoil approach makes it perfect for niche type part production appropriate for automotive, aerospace, agriculture, appliance or contract fabricators.
Interested companies can set up a time to visit the LaserCoil Technical Center located in Perrysburg, Ohio just south of Toledo along the I75 corridor where the company can process samples, prototypes or short run needs.
