Automated Laser & Punch

When it comes to efficient production in precision laser cutting, ESM's state-of-the-art automated laser and punch system is unmatched in performance. This high output system handles the material from start to finish and, once programmed, can operate virtually unattended. Its "hands-free" operation capability enables quick, safe and efficient production with minimal down time. The automated features of the system include the Tower Loader, which houses the sheet material, and the multiple Staging Tables, which manage the infeed and outfeed from the laser and punch work-stations.
