Staub Manufacturing Solutions is pleased to announce that we have invested over $2M in a new, automated laser cutting system. This advanced, multi-laser system will be a key component of our expanding production metal fabrication operation.

The new laser system consists of two Mitsubishi 6KW Fiber lasers and the SmartFlex Rapid Tower material-handling automation. The lasers utilize advanced controls technology, making them the fastest cutting machines, per kilowatt, in the industry and are well suited for our core material group: aluminum, carbon steel and stainless steel from 22 ga (0.030”) up to 1⁄2” (0.500”).

The SmartFlex Rapid Tower automation provides high-speed, machine loading and unloading using a vacuum-load system with thickness detection and sheet separator features. It includes a 16-shelf material storage tower, dual unload carts and an unload conveyor. The conveyor will be a great option for parts that require special handling to protect critical surfaces.

Phase one of this system is already installed and operational (see pics below) and the complete system will be online in early Q1 2020.

If you have any questions about this new equipment or if you’d like to discuss sourcing production fabrication work to STAUB, please contact us at (937) 890-4486 or info@staubmfg.com.
