National Cart invests in tube laser

National Cart, a manufacturer of carts for retail, commercial and material handling applications, has recently made two major equipment acquisitions. NCC has recently invested in a tube laser to their portfolio of high-tech machinery.

The tube laser reduces hard tooling needs, speeds turnaround time, creates additional savings and expands design capability. Additionally, the new robot adds new capabilities and is the latest and greatest in aluminium robot technology. The robot has grown additional capacity and increased quality throughout the already expansive welding department.

The tube laser provides that consistency. Cutting precise miter joints, interlocking complicated assemblies using round and square tube in combination with sheet materials, are only a few of the laser’s capabilities.

Advance technologies associated with the tube laser helps take cost out of the manufacturing processes. Its software provides a direct link to the company’s 3D CAD design stations. This allows for maximum production run-time, reducing down-time and waste.

“Since installing the tube laser, parts are weld-ready,â€? Tom Rattini, Vice President of Operations for National Cart shared. “The need for drilling, punching, notching and deburring are eliminated.â€? Difficult materials including aluminium, stainless steel and galvanized are no problem for the tube laser. “The laser technology provides precise cutting on these traditionally difficult-to-cut metals.â€?
