In their search for a high-speed CO2 laser cutter equipped to handle their electrical insulators, Dublin's Tocana Ltd. visited the Trotec booth at Birmingham's Sign & Digital show. Following a consultation with Trotec experts and a live demonstration, Tocana ordered a SpeedMarker directly on the show floor.
Tocana specialize in the design, development, and manufacture of electrical insulation solutions. They cut unique, flame retardant insulators for a range of products, including computers, power supplies and distribution systems, automotive components, telecommunications and medical equipment, lighting, TVs and appliances. Their insulators are made from a variety of plastics including a special, flame retardant Polypropylene, able to withstand up to 32,000 volts.
Until now, Tocana's insulators were produced with conventional metal cutting and creasing dies. However, with the addition of a SpeedMarker for high-speed laser cutting, they've reduced their cycle time to less than 10s each! Their laser also allows for:
- Greater design flexibility
- Quicker time to market
- Cost savings on cutting dies
- Greater cost efficiency on small runs
"At Tocana we pride ourselves on our reaction time. We have built our reputation on super quick response times and our ability to provide solutions quickly and economically. We had been looking at upgrading some of our existing cutting systems but wanted something really special and fast. The SpeedMarker was not the only machine we looked at but once our engineers started to work with their counterparts in Trotec that was that. Trotec were able to customise the product to suit our industry requirements and they delivered exactly what we needed in record time. We are already working with Trotec on a second system."- Fearghal McEvatt - Managing Director, Tocana Ltd. -
