It was a choice stemming from a desire to automate the processing cycle as much as possible, which is why we decided to combine the machine with a Night Train FMS storage unit featuring 10 towers with 12 drawers.
"We are getting a better quality cut on the fiber and it is much faster. A job that used to take 1 hour and 45 minutes can be produced in 40 minutes with the LPef. It is the same nest, but the fiber laser runs much faster than the CO2 model.”
"The new SGes have helped us double our productivity. We can go from sheet to part without re-clamping. Unlike their competitors, Shear Genius punching and shearing utilize the same clamp...so production is continuous. Another positive benefit is that we have gone from a 100 amp circuit to a 50 amp circuit for the machines, which translates into an incredible power savings."
“Laser Genius has increased our efficiencies by 30%. The efficiencies that we gained from the Laser Genius reduced my ROI from five years to 3 1/2 years.”
Jeff Nelson - Operations manager
“We looked at high-speed punch presses, different types of lasers, and combination machines. Ultimately we decided on the Prima Power PSBB Line. We discovered that we could most easily maintain single part flow with the PSBB line, eliminate all the in-between processing handling time, and also reduce our WIP. ”
“As we adapted to automation, instead of just running the laser first and second shifts, we were able to program the laser to run lights out because of the tower” - Chuck Muns, manufacturing engineer supervisor
"With our new production site in Herzogsdorf, we have the most modern sheet metal processing plant in Austria. By selecting Prima Power we are pleased to have chosen a system supplier with whom we were able to successfully handle such a large, challenging project, and who we can continue to rely on in the future." - Graduate engineer Maximilian Priglinger, managing director of Biohort GmbH
Mark Brazier, managing director from PAB Coventry, praises his Prima Power experience
The best thing about working with engineers from Laserdyne is their willingness to work with us to find a solution when we have a complex part that needs an outside-the-box approach to laser processing.
During the years we have always chosen Prima Industrie, this because we believe it is a leader company in its field.
Actions and support of Prima Industrie were absolutely exceptional.
The relationship with Prima Industrie was established in 1999 with the purchase of the first laser system, over the time we have built a good collaboration and have become partners.
This impressive machine, innovative for the Spanish market, is much more environmentally friendly than conventional ones, its characteristic is to perform a cutting of the highest quality and precision.
I have been the first company in Turkey to use Prima Power machines because I realized that they are suitable for my job. So, I greatly appreciate these products and still work with them.
The machines of Prima Power have a lower energy consumption which allowed us to save as much as 100.000 kw. All these features ensure that the machines are fully environmentally-friendly.
The punching and laser processes save us significant cost in hard tooling, which we would otherwise need for small prototype runs.
Prima Power people do an excellent job of helping us in the design of equipment. This partnership has worked very well for 14 years.
We are very satisfied with the Prima Industrie Platino 1530 that we have been using during 12 years properly and we want to note about the good quality of the machine.
“Professional” is the first word that comes into my mind if I have to say something about Prima Power.
We saw the Prima Power E5x turret punch press at an exhibition and were impressed with its simplicity and low power consumption. Within weeks of the installation we absolutely loved the machine.
We were impressed by Prima Power E5X speed, flexibility, technology and intelligent software it was not difficult to make the decision.
The availability of the machines is guaranteed with the continuous improvement of the local service, which is structured with spare parts stock and technicians available to attend our after sales demand.
I was impressed with how supportive the Prima Power management was before and after the installation.
If we do have a problem, within a 24-hour period Prima Power will have a technician in our shop.
In terms of volume, we can now make a panel every 40-50 seconds!
We chose the Prima PLATINO because after researching the industry we found that it had just as many, if not more machine features than the competitors, at a better price.
The Platino increased production 30-40% and changed AVT Beckett’s engineering approach.
