Laser processing of wood with 20 mm thickness
Automatisierung durch Remote Operation
In order to attain the maximum level of automation in its machining process the 'Laser Workshop' uses an optional automation technology that has stood the test of time – Remote Operation. What does Remote Operation mean? This option helps the user to drastically minimise processing time on the laser table. The cutting system is designed for alternating operation, i.e. the cutting table is divided into two machining areas. While the laser is still cutting on the one side, the operator can safely remove the finished parts on the other side. Once the cutting process is finished, the sides are simply changed and production goes on uninterrupted. This process reduces idle times to a minimum so that the system can be operated at virtually full capacity.
Equipped in this way, the 'Laser Workshop' was able to manufacture more than 20 elaborate fence elements in just one hour. This would have taken much, much longer had it been carried out by hand.
Professor Ernst W. Nowak, managing director of Laser workshop:
'Our worldwide research via the Internet brought us a lot of valuable information about the laser systems available on the market (…), but only eurolaser was able to meet our requirements to the full and in an outstanding quality.'
Laser technology is gaining acceptance in an ever increasing number of areas and will play a decisive role in many manufacturing processes in future as well. It’s good to be ready and well-equipped for tasks to come. The 'Laser Workshop' has recognised this trend and is now in a position to answer the challenge of the competition, both today and in the future.
