“It is our company philosophy to invest in machine technology to accommodate a broad range of job specifications and to offer short lead times,” said Paul Krickeberg, president and CEO of Sharpe Products.
The LT7 operating software supports multiple operations. One of its feature is weld-seam detection, which helps to assure the best cut quality and meet the functionality or aesthetic needs of the part. A more efficient centering cycle ensures consistency and a reduction in production time per part.
Additionally, the laser is equipped with a 3D cutting head to create true, knife-edged bevels, copes or miters that may be needed for weld prep or other features required for customer part specifications.
“We are pleased to work with Sharpe Products on the installation of the new BLM Group LT7 laser cutting system and to offer technical training for their personnel on this new equipment,” said Lindley Searles, regional sales manager with BLM Group.
This laser system can be integrated with Sharpe’s existing BLM Group tube bending machines and is expected to increase manufacturing efficiency for products that require features cut prior to the bending operation.
