Las aplicaciones industriales de corte por láser requieren equipos de alta gama.


Back to Overview

Manufacturers of industrial applications usually focus on one specific application, which is part of a larger complex production process. In this area, you will find industries such as the automotive industry, the medical sector and the electronics. Each manufactured component must meet the highest quality standards with the use of sustainable materials and at the same time be profitable. There is absolutely no room for errors and functionality is key. To achieve such quality, precise cutting with advanced equipment is necessary. Laser cutting is, therefore, one of the most suitable technologies that can deliver high productivity while maintaining high cutting accuracy.

Even within these industries, trends are influencing the production of industrial applications. Both trends from outside and inside the organization are shaping the production processes of tomorrow.

Spot the trends

Differentiation is a trend among brands and refers to the ability to customize products to be truly unique. This applies to the automotive industry for instance. Nowadays, it is very common to completely choose how your future car is going to look like. This is very trend sensitive, concerning the upholstery on the inside of the car, the seat belt and even textile or composite parts in the dashboard.

But that doesn’t mean utilizing equipment that’s needlessly complicated. Then Simplification is just as important a trend as differentiation, yet more related to the production process and required equipment. A union of hardware and software that’s accessible and rewarding to work with, empowering both knife cutter and laser cutter users of all skill levels defines simplification.

Indeed, industrial applications can also be cut with knife cutters. Take for instance the production of bulletproof vests, for which Kevlar is a commonly used material. This material is preferred to be cut with a flatbed knife cutter for safety reasons.

The third and final trend that ties the industry together is Agility. Customers, also in business-to-business environments, want their cut and machined materials fast. That requires utilizing a process that works at pace without risking quality. While supporting the high-quality demands and providing the speed needed to meet trends by moving to market, fast.

Face the industry challenges with laser cutting

  • Tall orders naturally bring plenty of unique challenges with it. Users need a cutting solution that offers true flexibility through automation and intelligent technologies. Automation enables manufacturers to minimize human error while maintaining speed and consistency, allowing your cutting infrastructure to scale with higher volumes and more complicated cutting designs with ease. Moreover, automation eliminates the cost and time needed for human interventions.
