Laser Cutting & Machining
The MuShield Company has three lasers on the shop floor. All three lasers have their own specific function at MuShield.
Trumpf TruLaser Cell 3010 5-Axis Laser
- The Trumpf laser is generally used in secondary post-forming operations when critical cut outs are necessary for the fit or function of a sheet metal piece part. Being able to move on the X, Y and Z axis allows for the laser to cut challenging shapes that would be impossible for a normal spin lathe to cut.
- All features can hold a positional tolerance of +/- .002″ or better.
- The IPG LaserCube is a machine that has not only allowed us to hold extremely tight tolerances when cutting flat patterns, but has also improved our efficiency and material yield in production. Since bringing the IPG Laser onto the production floor, we have been able to decrease our scrap material by about 30%.
Amada C-1500b 2-Axis Laser
- The Amada is used to cut out a developed flat blank for parts that will eventually be formed, bent or welded
All three lasers are generally used to laser cut or laser etch mumetal, Aluminum, Steel and Stainless Steels, Brass, Titanium and Tantalum, up to .125″ thick.
