Fleva Products opts for flexible production with Trotec.
Fleva Products from Lieshout has been a true household name in the field of plastic semi-finished products for many years. With their machinery, they have been processing plastic with a wide range of activities for more than 6 years. Since the beginning of 2019 another one has been added: laser cutting. The company purchased an R500 laser machine from Trotec Laser. "The laser cutter gives us the necessary flexibility and the ability to anticipate the customer's possible requirements", says owner Floris Vermeulen.
Fleva Products as a reliable partner
Floris Vermeulen is no longer an unknown name in the world of plastics. The company has been supplying processed plastics to various markets since 2013, such as the electronics industry, mobility industry, food industry, lighting industry and mechanical engineering. Fleva Products supplies tailor-made products and has built up an extensive and varied machine park over the years. We are proud to be able to do everything ourselves,'' says Vermeulen. In addition to the option of laser cutting and laser engraving, you can also mill, glue, print and bend at Fleva Products. Every year, Fleva Products produces thousands of various custom-made parts and semi-finished products, mainly housing parts, gears, footplates and cover plates. What distinguishes us, however, is that we don't just do production. In addition to offering non-binding advice and support, we can also take care of the design and technical drawing work for our customers, making us not only a supplier, but more of a reliable partner'', says Vermeulen.
New laser machine
Owner Floris Vermeulen once worked for a technical company. Here he also came into contact with a laser system for the first time. I can still remember very well that I was taken in tow in the search for a laser. It was then that I developed an interest in laser technology and discovered the market'', says Floris Vermeulen. To improve the quality and to spend less time on laser cutting and laser engraving, Fleva invested in a laser system from Trotec Laser. If you want laser cutting and laser engraving as a company at a high level, then you have to invest in good systems," says Floris Vermeulen. Besides investing in a good laser system, the company has also invested in high quality laser material. It's very nice that we have everything from one supplier whom we also trust very much. That's why we order a lot of our plastics (TroLase and TroLase Metallic) from theTrotec webshop. Not only because of the convenience, but also because the laser material at Trotec is of high quality'', says Floris Vermeulen.
In the search for a suitable laser, Fleva Products came into contact with Trotec Laser. After a few conversations and a demo, we decided to purchase the laser machine. A decisive aspect was the double source technology. ''Our laser machine contains two laser sources, which enables us to laser engrave as well as laser cut. This was one of the conditions, since we work with it so much. We didn't have to compromise on either of the two aspects'', says Vermeulen. Fleva Products is very satisfied with the
R500 laser machine. The laser machine has been in daily use since the purchase and is almost not switched off. It is the workhorse of the company''.
