Wednesday, 05 October 2011 07:29

ARC Multi metal services Ltd are pleased to announce the commission of a brand new F1 4kw laser profiling machine with an automatic ASL UL 6 stack automated tower for unloading and loading. With the new Amada F1 laser cutting machine we are able to offer laser cutting on thicker materials and with our fully automated tower loading system are effectively able to offer a 24-hour cutting service.

Ideal for large jobs, batch runs or Call off orders and with a cutting capacity up to 16mm thick in stainless steel, 25mm in mild steel and 10mm in  Aluminium. The automated tower system allows 9 tonnes of material to be in production at any time. 

We are able to laser cut material 365 days a year, 7 days a weeks, 24 hours a day enabling us to be cost effective due to reduced staffing costs for overnight production. We can offer fast turnaround and be competitive when it comes to price.

In addition Arc Multi metals has invested in the very latest Doctor Abe (Dr.Abe) laser cutting and nesting software we can achieve maximum efficiency from sheet materials.

The new Amada F1 Nt series laser enables us to reduce set up times saving our customers money. Using adaptive mirrors to allow a change in the size of the laser beam that is programmed by our fully automated cad development programme. This along with the addition of the Amada F1 Nt series laser nozzle changer all enables us to operate unattended through different material types and thicknesses automatically.

Amada F1 Nt series laser nozzle changer allows us to programme production runs around a variety of materials and thicknesses seamlessly changing, cleaning and re calibrating completely unattended from the eight lens station. We appreciate the need to produce urgent parts for breakdown and short lead times and pride ourselves on our ability to react to our customers needs. The Amada F1 Nt series laser cutter allows us to change from one material or thickness at the touch of a button without dismantling part of the laser cutting machine, this gives us more options and the ability to change during programs to fit in those urgent rush jobs we all get.

With the Amada F1 Nt series laser cutting machine we also invested in the ASL UL 6 stack automated tower. The 6 stack automated tower takes care of the loading and unloading of sheets. Suction cups allows loading of different material types including steel, aluminium, stainless steel, zintec and galvanised sheet. With the potential to stock 3000kg per tray ensures uninterrupted production runs and allows a maximum of 9000kg to be in production at any time. The material that is next to be laser cut is selected by the ASLUL automated tower, The sheet is loaded on to the laser cutting bed by suction cups. The metal is the cut the by the laser machine and then the material is returned to a different tray in the ASLUL automated tower for preparation to despatch . The process continues again until all the material is processed. The ASLUL Tower system also reduces the amount of handling of material required cutting the risk of surface damage.

We are able to laser cut material 365 days a year, 7 days a weeks, 24 hours a day enabling us to be cost effective due to reduced staffing costs for overnight production. We can offer fast turnaround and be competitive when it comes to price. 

Simply put; we can take on high volume work at lower rates than our competition.

All of this leads to ultra fast turnaround times for prototypes or production and a reduction in the overall cost of producing parts..........critical in today’s just-in-time and competitive manufacturing environment.

If you can draw it, then we will probably be able to cut it for you!

 

We Carry:

  • Galvanised Sheet
  • Zintec Sheet
