Robinson Metal Enhances Laser Cutting Capabilities



Robinson Metal, Inc. is using a new fiber laser machine to enhance its laser cutting efficiency and reduce project lead times. The new fiber laser cutting system is an Amada LCG 4020 AJ.

"As a single-source metal fabrication supplier, we have a responsibility to our customers to maintain our position as a leader in laser cutting in Wisconsin," said Jamie Tilkens, Fabrication and Machining Division Manager at Robinson Metal. "Our new fiber laser allows us to process material at a much faster rate than was possible with our older equipment."

From a production standpoint, the upgraded laser features enhanced reliability and reduced operational maintenance. The result is minimal downtime and quicker production timelines.

"The laser cutting process also is enhanced, with a more consistent beam emitted from a single optic. The fiber laser machine is able to run thinner material at a rate five times faster than traditional laser technology," said a company spokesperson.

The LCG 4020 AJ features 1.4 g acceleration over an expanded 160" x 80" work area. With cutting speeds over 4,700 IPM, it offers continuous high-speed processing on a wide range of materials.

"We have incorporated the new fiber laser machine into our load and unload automation system for even faster production capability," Tilkens said. "The combination of advanced technology and our highly skilled workforce will enhance our reputation as a leader in all facets of metal fabrication."

Robinson Metal leverages advanced technology throughout its plant to fulfill orders for customers in a wide range of industries. For example, a boring bar featuring computer numerical control (CNC) technology produces round metal parts within tight tolerances.
