BOLD Laser Automation Inc. announces the shipping of its latest digital manufacturing tools, trademarked the LPC1006 Digital Laser Stamping Platform. The LPC1006 is a production laser stamping tool that is coil and foil web fed for lights out operation. The LPC1006 enables rapid precision fabrication, to dimensional tolerances of ±0.001” (±0.025 mm), producing parts on thicker coil and thinner foil web materials such as aluminum, stainless steel, copper and titanium.
Leveraging unique beam shaping and focusing nozzle-based beam delivery technology the laser tool can offer quick turn part fabrication for customers and traditional stamping service organizations.
Leveraging digital artwork, the laser system can produce prototypes and pilot production components as high-volume punching tools are being built and qualified. LPC1006 is a market dominance tool, allowing stamping service providers a quick turn process to support new sales, existing clients and to test new markets or hybrid materials including plastics.
LPC1006 can be configured with various fiber laser power levels including single-mode outputs to meet specific precision material processing requirements. Outfitted with high accuracy X-Y linear scanning and trepanning head options, the system can process 150mm x150mm to 300mm x300mm field size with coil material and perform precision drilling operations for filters, screens and nozzle products.
LPC1006 provides for standard coil and foil feeders as well as customized sheet feeders, with underside part drop and conveyor platform to carry the final products out to awaiting box catch areas for continuous operations in lights out shifts. Add features include WiFi notifications and datalogging on system status changes.

Using a shaper primarily to produce flat surfaces in horizontal, vertical or angular planes. It can also include the machining of curved surfaces, helixes, serrations and special work involving odd and irregular shapes. Often used for prototype or short-run manufacturing to eliminate the need for expensive special tooling or processes.
Drilling deep holes that are too large to be drilled by high-pressure coolant drills or gundrills. Trepanning generates a solid core and normally requires a big, powerful machine. Shallow trepanning operations can be performed on modified engine or turret lathes or on boring machines. See boring; drilling; spade drilling.
On a rotating tool, the portion of the tool body that joins the lands. Web is thicker at the shank end, relative to the point end, providing maximum torsional strength.
