Laser Blanking Line

With no restrictions of the blank’s contours, the tryout process is greatly accelerated and allows for a wide range of shape production. The blank’s contours can be optimized while production is going, resulting in high output rates and tremendous flexibility. In addition to optimized blank nesting, the amount of scrap and material costs are reduced. There is also a noticeable decrease in noise emissions, reducing the need for noise protection measures.
The new laser blanking line from Schuler Incorporated combines cutting-edge laser methods with continuous coil feeding for maximum performance and flexibility, utilizing DynamicFlow Technology that is energy efficient and can process a variety of materials such as high-strength steels, with repeat accuracy and edge quality. The new line cuts blanks from a continuously fed aluminum coil. Using three laser heads in parallel, this blanking line can cut blanks with a thickness of 0.8 mm to 3 mm and a width of up to 2,150 mm.
