LINACUT® combines the unmatched flexibility of laser cutting, turret punching together with the performance of coil fed processes.
The LINACUT® line is the perfect complementary equipment to existing flat-bed laser and CNC turret punching machines.
Always looking for more efficient solutions towards his customers, DIMECO designed his new LINACUT®.
Built for sheet metal up to 4 mm thick (8 Ga) and available in 20, 40, 60 & 80'' wide, the concept uses an on purpose coil handling line, a LINACUT® continuous laser cutting module and a fully automatic part downloading system.
CUTTING MATERIAL COSTS
Working from coil is like processing a blank with infinite length. It therefore opens the nesting algorithms to unlimited options
- Up to 40% scrap rate reduction can be generated compared to traditional lasers,
- There is no limit in part length to be produced,
- Buying coil instead of blanks offers more saving on material cost and storage.
PART SORTING AND SKELETON SCRAPPING
One 6 or 7 axis robot offloads continuously the various parts nested in the strip (up to 10 references) and stacks them as per the selected packing configuration.
Skeleton splitting is managed through the CAM processor. Scrap is dropped into a container at slat conveyor exit.
NON STOP PRODUCTION
Very long runs can be achieved. Coils up to 25 tons (55,000 lbs.) can be used:
A 60’’ wide coil, with a thickness of 19 Ga, coil becomes an unlimited blank of 6,500 ft, which is 650 sheets of 5x10’.
