LaserCoil Technologies has announced that RSDC (Holt, Mich.), the largest
metal toll processor under one roof in North America, has placed an order
for a dual-head, 8kW coil-fed blanking line, the first of its kind in North
America. This line also features sealed optics and LaserCoil’s proprietary
high-speed Z-axis. It is expected to be running production by fourth quarter
“We are excited to enter the laser blanking market and provide our customers
with valuable options for their blanking needs,” said Chris Van Deventer,
RSDC president. “With the variety of parts we process, it was crucial to
find a laser blanking solution that could meet the high-speed requirements
of our business. The LaserCoil system will be an excellent addition to our
four conventional blanking lines and cut-to-length line while positioning us
well to serve the needs of the growing EV market.”
By laser cutting direct from coil stock, LaserCoil systems provide a fast
and flexible approach to blanking that is well-suited for production
environments running multiple blank profiles and mixed material types. The
systems can handle coil stock up to 2.1 m wide in any length, and can
process aluminum, mild steel, advanced high-strength steels, materials for
surface sensitive panels as well as structural components.
