MONTEL ENHANCES ITS MANUFACTURING COMPETITIVENESS WITH LASER CUTTING TECHNOLOGY
Montel, the pioneer of high-density mobile storage shelving system solutions in North America, is pleased to announce a recent investment at its manufacturing facility for the acquisition of a new state-of-the-art laser cutting system.
Laser cutting is a precision process in which metals of extreme hardness are cut by using a concentrated laser beam. This modern technology allows cutting complex shapes, forms and contours out of various types of material. Laser cutting is usually employed for through-hole or through form-cutting. The process produces some amount of heat as it melts the material that is in the path of the laser beam. Laser cutting is usually distortion free and produces an almost net shape.
“Montel is very excited with its state-of-the-art laser cutting system acquisition”, explained Jerome Doucet, Vice President Sales & Marketing at Montel. “Offering the highest cutting speeds on the market, delivering higher output and better productivity than conventional cutting systems, laser cutting is an advantageous technology choice for Montel.”
Laser cutting machines are hooked up to a computer with a CAD program on it. The program houses the template for what the laser machine will cut. The item that has to be cut is placed on a honeycomb material that enables the laser beam to shine through. The CAD program directs the laser and small mirrors are used to guide the beam to where the material has to be cut. The temperature of the beam is controlled by nitrogen gas. The gas is used to contain the burning areas when flammable material is being cut.
Member of the Canada Green Building Council, Montel has an ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability and recognizes the importance of manufacturing upscale products that meet and exceed environmental standards while focusing on green-building initiatives that contribute to a more sustainable workspace environment. With its laser cutting system that eliminates dust and fumes during the manufacturing process, Montel enhances its environmental responsibility through its corporate culture.
