“Using wider steel sheets helps maximise the output of workpieces on our laser cutter, which often reduces the volume of scrap metal. This is makes good business sense, particularly when processing thick sheets and more expensive grades of steel. If you multiply the number of sheets, it soon mounts up,” explains Andreas Lyngbye, Key Account Manager, Steel Solutions, Ib Andresen Industri.
A laser cutter’s working radius is usually wider than a standard sheet, which means that steel-consuming companies can increase their productivity by using bigger sheets that fully exploit the dimensions of the cutting table.
At Ib Andresen Industri, we have five laser cutters, the biggest with a cutting table measuring 2.5 x 12 metres.
Coils up to 2150 mm wide are possible
“There’s nothing new in our ability to cut steel sheets that are 2150 mm wide, but in our experience, companies don’t make use of this. Lots of steel is purchased in standard widths of 1250 and 1500 mm, which makes sense in many instances. But we’re keen to draw attention to the widest coils, too, because our laser cutters make it possible for customers to maximise the potential of their cutting boards,” explains Ole Jensen, Key Account Manager, Ib Andresen Industri.
In addition, steelworks can manufacture customised coil widths; via Ib Andresen Industri’s Steel Service Centres, these can be cut into steel sheets with fixed dimensions, substantially reducing the volume of material used. Ib Andresen Industri’s Steel Service Centres can handle coil widths from 550 mm to 2150 mm and can cut sheet lengths from 700 mm to 18,000 mm.
