It’s become an accepted fact that future vehicles will be built from a mix of materials including advanced steels (AHSS), high-strength aluminum, magnesium, as well as plastics and polymer composites for reinforcement. While the overall mix of materials in the vehicle is predicted to change, the vast majority of the content will remain a ferrous or non-ferrous metal. If you’re mechanically blanking, this means different die and press requirements for each material. Not so with laser blanking — coil-fed laser blankers are material agnostic and ready to cut various metals at the highest edge quality simply by changing the coil and entering the new cutting recipe.
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. Let us show you how LaserCoil might benefit your operation. Just contact us to set up a visit to our Technnology Center in Perryburg, Ohio.
