LaserCoil Technologies LLC, a new company that manufactures laser blanking systems, has established its technical center in Perrysburg, Ohio. The 12,000-sq.-ft. facility, which serves as the technical development center for the company, houses one of its coil-fed blanking systems that can handle 30-ton coils. Starting in March 2014, the blanking system will be available to run prototype parts, low-volume production, and test part runs.
The facility is co-located on the property of toll processor Precision Strip as part of its 100,000-sq.-ft. expansion of the already existing 300,000-sq.-ft. facility.
The company’s laser blanking machines deliver part-ready components for stacking at the end of the line as scrap is shed automatically during the cutting process. The systems can process coils in such materials as aluminum, mild steel, and high-strength steels from 0.02 to 0.14 in. thick, up to 6.5 ft. wide, at any length.
In addition to the new location, the company has more than 130,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing space at other facilities in Napoleon, Ohio, that houses additional design, engineering, equipment manufacturing, and service capabilities.
