Mitsubishi Fiber Laser Technology, Subject of Feature Story in The FABRICATOR

October 12, 2015 12:55:41 PM

Mitsubishi makes some of the best fiber laser cutting machines in the world. In this month’s issue of The FABRICATOR, Editor, Dan Davis writes about how metal fabricator, Lynam Industries, is finding that out firsthand. The company is an interesting one… anything but a job shop. As the article states, “The Fontana, Calif.-based fabrication shop is not a job shop, where anyone with an idea for a metal contraption might wlak through the front door. In fact, [the] business doesn’t even have a sign indicating to the passerby what type of manufacturing might be happening behind the closed doors.”

After establishing itself as a as a supplier to Southern California’s significant data and telecommunication sector in the 1990s, Lynam branched out to other OEM clients. The diversification of its client base paired with steady growth forced the shop to look for a different way to do its work.

“We needed the speed of the fiber laser to make more products economically,” Lindstrom said. “The CO2 laser could not keep up with demand needed on light-gauge sheet metal, and its economic efficiency was limited to thick metal work. We needed a third choice besides turrets or a CO2 laser, and the fiber laser was the answer.”
