Importance of Planning the Flow of Laser-Cut Parts

Laser cutting technology offers several benefits and can enable fabricating shops to cut complex shapes and at faster speeds, but do you have the right plan and process in place to move these laser-cut parts throughout the shop floor? In a recent article in The Fabricator magazine, our Automation Specialist, Jason Legrand, shares five ways fabricating shops can improve the flow of laser-cut parts.

Here are the five planning steps Legrand expands on:

  1. Shop Layout
  2. Maintenance
  3. Programming
  4. Automation
  5. Production Monitoring

As Legrand states in the beginning of the article, “Your shop’s layout can make or break even the most efficient production plan. The more time your parts spend in transit or waiting for delivery to the next operation, the less efficient you’re being, and the effect can be crippling.”

The reward in taking the time to plan and envision your shops flow is efficiency, time savings and faster delivery. To access the full article titled “5 ways to improve your flow of laser-cut parts”, please click here.
