High Power Lasers Laser-in-Motion™ Series

Fast. Agile. Simple.

The Laser-In-Motion™ (LIM™) product series from Claire Lasers is bringing cost effective laser marking solution to the Metal Forming Market. The LIM™ system replaces traditional stamping press with a laser marking system installed in-line with blanking press.

For the manufacturing business, the LIM™ solution offers numerous advantages enhancing the competitiveness of its service offering, namely:

  1. The LIM™ system reduces cost of labelling metal parts, by replacing slow and manpower intensive press stamping with an automated, computer controlled laser marking in-line with the blanking press. It also reduces tooling and setup cost by replacing stamping dies with computer files for the laser marker. These files can be produced and managed automatically with our software.
  2. The LIM™ system enables parts serialization and barcode marking; these features are impractical with mark stamping, and furthermore are conducive to computer controlled inventory management, a crucial feature for fully deployed JIT manufacturing. This is foreseen as the most valuable enabling feature for our customers, and the customers of our customers, as inventory control of supply chain is a major key to profitability in the advanced manufacturing sector.
  3. The LIM™ system can allow metal part manufacturers to compete effectively against companies with business models strictly based on manufacturing in countries with lower wages workers, because the Return on Investment (ROI) of a LIM™ system is typically less than two-years. With increasing competition from lower manpower cost in Asia and South and Central America in a global market, and increasing manpower cost in the Western World, the need for cost- effective, flexible and cleverly simple automation has never been so great.

The LIM™ system opens a whole realm of new possibilities compared to the regular operation of stamping press. Implementation of the LIM™ system in your business is the start of your clear manufacturing advantage.
