Cost-Effective Narrow-Web Processing
Preco's WebPro® LB3000 series are narrow web-based laser systems for roll-to-roll or roll-to-discrete part processing. These smaller, turnkey systems are ideal for lean manufacturing, short run production or process development. Available in two different widths, the base systems feature reel-to-reel processing with single or dual lasers. The base systems may include additional features to accommodate inbound lamination, in-line mechanical slitting, loose discs output conveyor, differential rewinding or robotic stacking.

Preco Laser Technology Advantages
Lightning Bolt™ AcuVision
Registers parts before processing and aligns cut pattern to ducials - either printed or mold marks. Inspection of part available after processing for 100% quality control.
Fast Processing Speed
Cut parts from moving webs for maximum production rates.
Soft tooling process, that is ‘flexible’
Eliminates tool and die fabrication, maintenance, and storage costs.
Laser cutting is a forceless process
Produces intricate patterns and ne details. Superior part quality that cannot be replicated using the die cut process.
Easy to use Windows® based software
Enables make-to-order processing of short-run or complex jobs.
Ramp up / Ramp down control
Eliminates scrap caused by overpowering of material at slower than normal processing speeds.
