Laser cutting of electrical insulators

Seeking out a high-speed CO2 laser cutter for cutting electrical insulators, Tocana Ltd. from Dublin visited the Trotec booth at the Sign & Digital show in Birmingham. After consultation and a demo from Trotec´s experts Tocana ordered a SpeedMarker promptly at the show.

Tocana specializes in the design, development, and production of electrical and electronic insulation solutions. They cut flame retardant electrical insulators for a wide variety of items, including computer, power supplies, electrical and power distribution systems, telecommunication equipment, medical equipment, automotive components, consumer products, lighting, televisions, and appliances. Their insulators are made from a range of plastics, including a particular Polypropylene, which is flame-retardant and can withstand up to 32,000 volts.

Laser systems for electronic industry

Many advantages with a laser

In the past, Tocana's insulators were produced with conventional metal-cutting and creasing dies. Today, however, they use their SpeedMarker for high-speed laser cutting and have reduced their cycle time to less than 10 seconds each. Other advantages of their laser include:

  • Increased design flexibility
  • Faster time to market
  • Cost savings cutting dies
  • Improved cost efficiency on small runs

High-Speed laser cutter GS Series

"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."
