How On the Fly Laser Systems Meet the Challenges of Plastic Extrusion Lines

At CMS Laser, our primary goal is to develop a laser-based solution that meets our clients’ manufacturing requirements and production goals. Ensuring a laser system is compatible with other production elements in a continuous processing flow is a common challenge. To address this challenge, one of the applications we pioneered and developed extensively is “On the Fly” laser processing.

What is On the Fly laser processing?

On the Fly laser processing requires the laser.

Pre-and Post-Process Vision Integration Enhance Laser Manufacturing Processes

Vision systems are increasingly incorporated into laser machine tools to inspect, identify and guide laser processes. In its simplest iteration, readers can retrieve data from product labels or documentation to obtain information relevant to the laser process. Data strings can confirm the identity of the part; specify the quantity of parts to process or designate the beginning/ending serial numbers. For more advanced implementation, vision systems can locate the part and determine its orientation to accurately position the process (marking.

3 Cornerstones of Laser Systems for Plastic Extrusion Lines

Speed, accuracy, and reliability are the cornerstones for laser applications within plastic extrusion lines. At CMS Laser, we’ve developed systems for multiple industries incorporating on-the-fly laser processing for laser marking, laser cutting and laser drilling. A high-volume manufacturing process, plastic extrusion produces items such as PVC pipe, irrigation drip tape, weather-stripping, window frames, plastic films and sheeting, and wire insulation, to name a few. The process is used across industries from medical device manufacturing.

How Automated Laser Systems Impact Endoscopy Device Industry

One of the challenges we regularly tackle for our clients, across all industries, is how to incorporate a laser system into a greater manufacturing process. Not only that, but many clients are looking for automation built into the solution in order to optimize manpower and production. In a recent post, we described a laser system built for an endoscopic device manufacturer for cutting and weld capping multi-stranded stainless steel guide wires. In this post, we’ll take a deeper.
