The most advanced approach to blanking without dies.
Installing a laser blanking system at your facility provides you with the flexibility to quickly react to changes in production as well as increasing the quality of your blanks. With a LaserCoil system, you can process a variety of coil material and cut shapes from complex body side outers to simple chevron and scroll cuts without the need for hard tooling. Our coil-fed laser blanking systems offer a variety of advantages over mechanical blanking, especially when processing today’s advanced high strength steels, which can prematurely age tooling as well as require higher stamping forces. Imagine the time and cost savings you can achieve by not producing stamping dies.
LaserCoil Technologies’ systems are based on over half a decade of research and successful production runs since 2011. The technology originated out of Automatic Feed Company, a 70-year-old company known for being an innovator in pressroom automation . This depth of experience provides LaserCoil the right qualifications to deliver effective and unique press feeding technology to the market.

A LaserCoil production solution is the most advanced combination of coil-fed automation and high-speed laser cutting for surface-sensitive metal blanking. LaserCoil machines can produce parts at higher speeds than have been traditionally demonstrated with laser cutting tables. This helps companies to achieve yield rates – into the 60,000 piece range – that allow the consideration of laser cutting blanks over traditional stamping processes. This helps eliminate the need for dies and achieves greater flexibility and quicker changeover. The systems can process a wide variety of coil material in aluminum, mild steel, the new high-strength steels, and other materials as well as structural components in thicknesses from 0.5 to 3.5mm and up to 2.1m wide coil at any length.
The development of LaserCoil technology began in 2008 with patent filings beginning in 2009 and customer production runs starting in 2012. Since delivering our first customer machine order in 2013, we have led in the development and application of coil-fed laser blanking. While we share several aspects of our technology through this website, the best way to experience LaserCoil is to visit our Technology Center in Perrysburg, Ohio to see it in action.
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.
