LaserCoil Technologies LLC has announced the addition of Continuous Mode (On the Fly Cutting) capability to its coil-fed laser blanking systems enabling users to choose either Feed Index Mode (Stop/Start) or Continuous Mode to optimize cutting parameters for each part configuration, increasing processing rates and enhancing quality. 

LaserCoil Technologies’ coil-fed laser cutting systems feature gantry mounted laser heads stationed in multiple cutting cells that travel along the moving strip, and balancing the workload. The laser cutting heads, using linear-induction motors, enable cutting of tightly nested, complex curvilinear shapes while the system’s dynamic profile conveyor features adjustable lanes that support the coil strip while automatically repositioning as needed to clear a path for the laser cut. This feature also facilitates gravity shedding of scrap and offal, delivering completely finished blanks without any scrap to any type of stacking system.

Importantly, from a capital investment standpoint is that LaserCoil systems are flexible and can integrate with any coil line automation, as well as be retrofit into aging blanking press lines.
By laser cutting direct from coil stock, LaserCoil systems provide a fast and flexible approach to blanking that is well-suited for production environments running multiple blank profiles and mixed material types, says the company.

The systems can process a wide variety of coil material in aluminum, mild steel, the new high-strength steels, and other materials for surface sensitive panels as well as structural components in thicknesses from 0.5 to 3.5 mm and up to 2.1 m wide coil at any length.
