Located in Tualatin, OR, Laser Cutting Services, Inc. (LCSI) provides precision metal laser cutting. After years of what company owner, Ron Duffy calls “the missionary work of introducing the idea of value added cut metal” the benefits eventually took hold and soon LCSI had found a niche.
“New laser cutting systems replaced older units; and with this new automation, sophisticated cutting technology, used with SigmaNEST nesting software, we have quadrupled our capacity,” explained Duffy. “Things that took hours now take minutes and are performed by the machines themselves to optimize the laser cutting head, the flow of gas, and the placement of material. These machines can basically run lights out.”
“Delivery is timely, and their prices can’t be beat – we have checked,” explained one LCSI customer. “We don’t get a lot of time from our customers and LCSI exceeds expectations. They use the best laser cutting equipment and SigmaNEST software in order to take care of customers.”
Nesting Software: Nest with the BEST®
Duffy added: “We work as a team serving our customers in every way we can. We employ the best highly trained team, the best Mazak laser cutting machine tools, and the best nesting software – SigmaNEST.”
LCSI sums up their use of SigmaNEST on their own web page….
Laser cutting has established itself as the most cost-effective cutting technology for many applications. Through the use of sophisticated nesting and scheduling software, orders can be processed quickly and efficiently. The combination of clean smooth edges, extreme accuracy and high repeatability, gives lasers an advantage over other cutting technologies. The lack of tooling and setup times means it’s also cost-effective for short runs and one-off artwork projects.
Our use of sophisticated nesting software ensures the best material utilization and maximum control over the cutting process. As an added benefit, setup times are reduced, which improves overall productivity considerably.
