With a 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, whether it be existing equipment currently in production or an investment in new or used equipment. According to the company, 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. 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 3.5 mm (0.02 to 0.14 in) and widths up to 2.1 m (6.9 ft) at any length.
