The Problems With Traditional Blanking Methods

If you’re reading this, chances are that you’re using one of two blanking methods: mechanical blanking or table lasers. While these have become standard with sheet metal, they come with their fair share of disadvantages. With mechanical blanking, you have dies to build, reoccurring die storage costs, and on-going die maintenance costs. You also have to always consider configuration limits and the use of a pit.
With table lasers, you have incremental costs, bulky storage needs, and blank size limitations. You also have flashback due to slats or a nail bed requirement to hold materials in place, as well as annoying sheet loading and unloading times.
Therefore, in using either of these methods, you’re putting yourself at a serious disadvantage. Fortunately, in switching to a more efficient method like coil-fed laser blanking, you can avoid all of these issues.

Coil-Fed Laser Advantages

The combination of a coil-feeding system paired with fiber laser cutting can be much more efficient than other blanking methods. You get more configuration flexibility, need no mechanical dies, can nest parts, and get none of the other disadvantages above.
Consequently, coil-fed laser cutting is the perfect way to upgrade your processes. It reduces costs, optimizes scrap, speeds up production, and increases flexibility. As a result, it significantly upgrades your output capability.
sheet metal



NO incremental material costs for sheets
NO cumbersome storage of various sheet sizes
NO blank size limitations due to sheet sizes
NO flashback due to slats or nail bed required to hold material
NO sheet loading & unloading time
mechanial die



NO expensive dies to build
NO reoccurring die storage costs
NO ongoing die maintenance costs
NO configuration limitations
NO pit required
Imagine no longer needing to spend the time or considerable investment in mechanical dies or being limited to a certain configuration. With coil-fed laser blanking, it is design to finished product in just seconds! Plus, coil-fed laser blanking allows the parts to nest parts for faster productions with better yields.
