End of an Era: One Chapter is Closed as Another is Opened

 

Starting today, May 9th, the 2002 vintage Trumpf Laser that has been with Laser Metal Profiles (LMP) will be dismantled and replaced by a 2022 Trumpf laser as of this Friday. When LMP was first established twenty years ago, this was the first laser that was purchased and utilized up until May 6th, 2022. As such, it was the first laser that helped launch LMP into what it is today. In many ways, this vintage laser was the engine of the company in its early days.

 

Throughout the thousands of hours of service, it provided ample production and ensured that LMP met the deadlines of its customers. The stability of the last two decades meant that this machinery was a part of the ebbs and flows that LMP incurred throughout its years of operation. In so, the growth of the company can be partly attributed to this laser providing a quality output when our customers needed it most.

 

 

Considering we are bringing in new machinery in two weeks’ time, this moment is bittersweet for all those that have been a part of the soon-to-be 20-year journey of LMP. For the owner, Carlo, this is moment is especially sentimental. Aside from the production, this laser represented for him and his employees what building a foundation of a small business represents; determination, collaboration, and goal-oriented. In other words, as a collective, this company has bonded together to create a family-oriented environment that began from a single laser machine.

 

As mentioned earlier, In regard to the new laser to be installed, this 2022 machine will have a much higher wattage and larger cutting area to better serve the needs of our valuable customers. With a large uptick in inches per minute, the manufacturing processes will be completed at a more efficient rate. In turn, we look forward to this new chapter at LMP and can’t wait until the machine is up and running.

Laser Metal Profiles Introduction

 

    Welcome to Laser Metal Profiles! As this is the inaugural post for the Laser Metal Blog, I would like to introduce the company and where we are presently. 

 

     Laser Metal Profiles was founded in 2002 with the goal of offering the highest quality parts from laser processed steel. For those outside of the industry, LMP uses laser cutting machines to cut steel into shapes that are only limited by the imagination and primarily for the purpose of the customers needs. We are capable of cutting basic shapes such as rectangles and circles but we are also capable of processing metal into extremely intricate profiles. Our gallery page has some images that showcase our capabailities.

 

     Getting back to our company, we have been around since 2002 and we have not stopped moving forward. We have expanded to 3 Laser processing centers including 1 Fiber laser which represents the latest laser processing technology.  It has dispensed with the traditional CO2 laser technology and uses diode technology to generate the beam.  But the real innovation is the beam delivery system.  The beam is delivered by using fiber optic cable.  Theoretiaclly, this delivery system does not suffer any degredation in beam intensity for approximately 80 km's.  A laser that has a table length of 80 km's is not practical but that now theoretically makes a laser table size of 120" x 600" possible.  Plywood sized plates may no longer be a limitation as the technology is developed and perfected further.

 

     As you can see, Laser Metal Profiles is constantly exploring news and better technology to serve the market and become a technology and service leader in the industry.  LMP is constantly planning for the future. Tune into to our website on a regular basis for new blog posts and exciting news regarding future plans and directions for Laser Metal Profiles and its business partners.

 

Thanks for tuning in and we hope to see you back again!


Until next time,
 

The Laser Metal Profiles Team
