Many traditional manufacturing and fabrication processes such as miter sawing and drilling are time consuming and often outdated in the context of new products being developed. With the ever-increasing demand of customers, production needs to be as efficient as possible to keep up.
Our in-house design team supports customers from the early design stages in achieving time and cost efficiencies through Smart Design and laser cutting techniques such as Slot-and-Tagging and Cut-and-Folding. This means the reduced number of parts needed are self-jigging and to a laser cut tolerance of +-0.25mm.
Where previously jigging and miter cutting was needed to assemble several tube or box section parts, we can create the same product through the laser cutting and folding of one part, including weld preps if needed.
Jigs can take up a lot of floor space and be time consuming to create and use. Slot-and-tagging creates a ‘flat-pack’ approach where parts self-jig and can be quickly and accurately assembled, time after time with CNC laser accuracy.
These techniques result in efficiencies achieved throughout customers’ production processes such as:
Self-jigging parts all but remove margin for error
Elimination of customer rejects
Reduced number of parts and shop floor space required per product
Production time required cut by up to 50%
Production processes involved reduced by up to 50%
Increase in product margins
Shop floor throughput doubled
Fast product turnaround provides shorter lead times on delivery
