Over the past decade modern Laser Cutting machine tools have become “Plug and Play”. The downside to this is that as the CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing) software becomes more automated, the engineers/ programmers can become complacent and end up being “button pushers”.
Here at Cutting Technologies Ltd we pride ourselves on continuing to be the experts and like Gary Kasporov put our minds to the test by beating the computer.
When it comes to large volume jobs or a technical problem, we don’t just leave it to the BUTTON, we use our technical and engineering skills to provide the solution.
CASE IN POINT
If you look at the drawing above, this is a typical balustrade or decorative building panel. It has over 2000 holes to be produced which require extensive head movement and piercing time. Running it through the automated programming system the total processing time was calculated at 83.22 minutes. Taking up the challenge our Laser Experts using years of Laser Processing experience and the old canny “Special Gas Nozzle” taken from the Tool box, reduced this time. As this was a repeat contract, we passed the savings onto our Customer. This resulted into a £120 discount off his next order. Speak to our experts to see how we can save you money on your repeat orders. As the saying goes “Time is Money”
