HTA Invests in new Trumpf TruLaser 5030 - 6KW
HTA has ordered a brand new 6kW laser cutting machine prepared for full automation to be installed in September 2009.
This new machine will replace an existing Trumpf flatbed laser cutting machine and will mean HTA benefits from the technological improvements that have been made over recent years.
This laser technology has been factory prepared for full automation in preparation for the reclocation to their new purpose built factory later in 2010.
Automating the loading and unloading of the laser cutting machine greatly increases processing speed by way of automated run cycles. The machine will eventually run largely unmanned through the introduction of a TruStore fully automated sheet storage unit which will feed raw materials to the lasers automatically from stock.
The 2009 Trumpf TruLaser 5030 also benefits from new cutting technology called the 'Laval Nozzle' which, due to a modified shape, significantly improves the laser cut quality on thicker gauge sheet. The laser cutting machine also uses single head cutting technology to avoid head changes and therefore improve cycle times.
HTA take delivery of their new 'Flagship' laser cutting machine on 14 September 2009 and it will be commissioned in 4 weeks.
