Coil-Fed vs. Traditional Laser Scrap Analysis

coil fed laser case study

Coil-Fed Laser Blanking Technology has many benefits that can help you in your manufacturing processes. In this scenario, we evaluate a 32” diameter circular part, commonly found in the cookware industry.  Our analysis is with a 60” wide, 0.030” thick stainless steel coil compared to sheets using traditional table lasers.

Producing metal blanks using coil-fed laser blanking technology allows for greater material optimization, that will save you money. The savings in this scenario is 1,640lbs less scrap. The result is a 49.5% scrap improvement when utilizing coil-fed laser blanking technology. The ability to cut parts edge-to-edge from slit to width coils can result in even further savings in certain scenarios.

OUTCOME: SCRAP IMPROVES 49.5%
WHEN UTILIZING COIL-FED LASER BLANKING TECHNOLOGY

Scrap savings is one of the many advantages of using coil-fed laser blanking technology over traditional laser blanking methods.
