Laser cutting

Laser cutting is a common and very flexible method used to precisely cut shapes and patterns in sheet metal of different qualities and thicknesses. With the latest technology, the results are much more accurate.

Benefits of laser cutting at Plåt & Mekano

Laser cutting of sheet metal is a very precise method for extracting details from a sheet metal blank. If you also add punching to the machines that P&M Romator has, you get a fantastic opportunity in the same set of machines to effectively produce e.g. bumps, threads, recesses or other tool-related shapes in the sheets. Of course, we can also make extensive perforations and markings in the machines.

Our machines

At Plåt & Mekano, we currently have 4 machines of the punch-laser combination model, which means that they both cut out the plates and punch shapes with tools almost simultaneously. This makes us one of the subcontractors in our industry with the greatest capacity in laser punching. With Amada EML2515AJ we have the latest technology with fibre laser cutting and fully automatic loading of plates and tools. 

We can cut from about

  • 0.5 up to 10 mm in steel
  • 0.5 up to 5 mm in aluminium
  • 0.3 up to 5 mm in stainless steel.

Amada EML2515AJ

With our new servo-electric punching machine with an integrated fibre laser, we reduce lead times significantly. Amada EML2515AJ increases our capacity, streamlines production and reduces electricity consumption. In addition, it can handle the 3000×1500 mm format, has high storage with sheet metal loading and an integrated tool change which enables quick changes between jobs. It has many control and maintenance functions that take place automatically, minimising downtime and reducing the need for operator intervention.

If you are curious about how the Amada EML2515AJ works, you can check out our video here.

Amada LC 2012 C1 laser cutting combination machine

The Amada LC 2012 C1 combi laser together with our two Apelio combi machines are in production around the clock. All are of the CO2 laser type, 2kW and have integrated punching units in the same machine as the laser unit. So it's two machines in one!

The advantage of this machine type is that for the right type of part containing mouldings, countersinks and threads, set-up time is saved and production is faster and more cost-effective. You can 

  • making engravings
  • punching markings, collars and bumps
  • hit smaller bends with tools directly in the machine. 

We can cut 

  • steel sheet 0.5 - 10 mm
  • stainless steel 0,5- 5 mm
  • aluminium 0.5- 5 mm. 

The machines are capable of cutting sheets in the size 2500×1250 mm. One of them also has unloading with a picking robot.

    Laser cutting a prominent method

    This flexible, non-contact method allows for quick changeovers and dimensional changes and minimises rework. It is thus a time-efficient method, but also reduces production costs thanks to the narrow cut and minimal material waste. Compared to gas cutting, for example, laser cutting produces a finer cut and a smaller heat-affected zone. You get a smooth surface and the cut can be as narrow as a tenth of a millimetre.

    Laser technology is simply the most advanced technology when it comes to cutting advanced shapes, in organic and non-organic materials.

    • Advanced technology for cutting advanced shapes with fine cuts.
    • Time and cost-effective method.
    • Technology that can cope with rapid change and changes in dimensions.
    • Provides a wide range of choices.

    Laser cut sheet metal - how does it work?

    Using fibre optics or mirrors, a thin, perpendicular and focused beam from a high-power laser is directed at the workpiece. The laser beam hits the surface of the sheet metal, where the energy is converted into heat and the material melts or completely vaporises. The actual cutting begins when the laser beam has penetrated the material at a certain point. The laser system follows the selected template and separates the material in the process.

    The thickness of the material to be cut, and the result of the cut, is determined by the performance of the machine, the cutting speed, the quality of the material and the conditions of the machine, but also by the skill and routine of the operator in setting all the different parameters of the machine.
