Case Histories

Real-World Advantages

Based on customer experiences with LaserCoil

LaserCoil cutting systems have been installed at customer locations and running production since 2014, Below are just a few examples of the real-world successes we have helped our customers achieve. After reviewing these application stories, contact us to learn more about how LaserCoil can bring you value.

Edge Quality

A customer’s mechanically cut blanks required an additional precision shearing operation to prepare the edge prior to a welding operation to produce tailor welded blanks.

Blanks were sourced for cutting by a LaserCoil coil-fed laser blanking machine.


  • The resulting laser edge did not require a secondary shearing operation
  • The coil width was reduced by 12-mm creating additional cost savings

Micro Fractures

A customer was experiencing splits in the forming process with blanks cut from 2-mm thick AHSS in a traditional blanking press operation.

After multiple attempts to resolve the problem with the steel supplier and through blank shape changes, the customer turned to LaserCoil for laser-cut tryout blanks.


  • It was determined that the mechanical blanking caused micro-fractures
  • The laser cut blanks eliminated the micro-fractures
  • Production of these parts were fulfilled using laser blanking


A customer was experiencing downtime due to problems keeping a blanking die running when standard tooling was put into use with high-strength steel.

Blanks were sourced for laser cutting on a LaserCoil system while the die tooling was being reworked to accommodate the high-strength materials. CAD data was generated by scanning a finished blank provided by the customer for programming of the LaserCoil equipment.


  • The LaserCoil line was programmed and ready to cut before the first coil arrived
  • The customer was able to continue to meet production requirements

Part Kitting

A customer’s service operation was experiencing excessive time and cost associated with production of aluminum service parts. To meet orders, stored coils would be slit to accommodate the various service part dies, but processing delays ensued as the dies were used infrequently and typically needed repair prior to use.   

Blanks were sourced for laser cutting on a LaserCoil system. Customer-supplied CAD data was loaded into the LaserCoil system and part nesting profiles developed.


  • The LaserCoil system eliminated the need to slit the coil ahead of the run
  • Parts were nested into 'kits' eliminating the need for multiple die setups
  • Capital equipment that was being used for short service part runs was freed-up

LaserCoil’s flexibility redefines achievable net shape blanking and scrap reduction for cost savings

The value of the LaserCoil blanking approach extends beyond the initial blanking operation into downstream process improvements. Within this website we share many of the obvious benefits delivered by blanking from coil using lasers. Since our investment into this technology starting in 2008, we have learned the extensive value manufacturers can achieve by applying this technology.
