Tsugami Automation has introduced a combination machine that combines Swiss style CNC machining, laser cutting and laser welding into one machine with a single shared platform.
The 20 mm, seven axis CNC machine integrates two SPI laser systems, one for cutting operations and a second one for welding.
It’s the first machine of its kind,” says Graham Noake, president of Innovative Machinery Group (IMG), “and we expect it to provide significant competitive advantages to manufacturers of small precision parts.”
Innovative Machinery Group (IMG) has formally change its name to Tsugami Automation.

The company designed and built the world’s first LaserSwiss machine, which combines Swiss style CNC machining and laser cutting into one machine with a single shared software platform.
“We’re rebranding the company to help manufacturers more easily understand what we do,” IMG President Graham Noake explained. “When they hear ‘Tsugami Automation’ they should immediately recognize that we are entirely focused on customizing and optimizing Tsugami machines.”
