The traditional fixed costs determined by punches, clamps, tools, templates and dies are entirely eliminated by CAD programming and the laser beam used as a universal tool.
The Lasertube systems have generated significant benefits in both processing and cost terms with regards to tube machining and assembly efficiency for a wide range of applications. The benefits concern three main areas:
- Major production rate improvements: some customers have reported improvements in the range from 70 to 80% with respect to conventional processes.
- Downstream assembly cost reduction, thanks to more stringent machining tolerances and thus better joints and fittings and easier fastenings.
- Process efficiency and enormous flexibility considerably expand the freedom and unleash the imagination of designers when developing new products to improve quality and cut time to market.
