Wide WebPro Series Jumbo Roll Laser Processing Machine

Models LB3500, LB4300, LB4500
WebPro Web-Based Processing Machine

Applications

  • Loose Discs
  • Disc Rolls
  • Hook & Loop
  • Stick-On Discs
  • Tabbed Discs

Mass Production System

Preco's Wide Web-Based laser systems for roll-to-roll or roll-to-discrete part processing. These larger, turnkey systems are ideal for high production requirements. Available in two different widths, the base systems feature reel-to-reel processing with multiple lasers. The control system operates in a user-friendly Windows® environment, allowing both cross-web and simple shape processing. As a result, changeovers are as simple as opening a file without the need of costly tooling.

Jumbo roll capabilities.

The Wide WebPro series of digital laser cutting systems are rapidly re-configured for changing job requirements. This machine has jumbo roll capabilities because of its larger footprint design.

Abrasive Disc Robot and Conveyor Options

The base systems may include additional features to accommodate inbound lamination, in-line mechanical slitting, loose discs output conveyor, differential rewinding or multiple robotic stacking.

Features & Benefits

Just some of the many benefits of buying a Preco Wide WebPro Series laser machine.

Digital Process that is "Flexible"

The non-contact process eliminates tool and die fabrication, maintenance and storage costs

Superior Edge Quality 

Sealed edge and no burrs, slugs, debris or strands left on cutting edge (depending on material)

High-Speed Processing On-the-Fly

Multiple fixed beam and galvo configurations with processing speeds up to 38 m (1500 in.)/minute

Vision System (Optional)

Allows precise cutting of imperfectly positioned materials or compensation for screen stretch

Ramp-Up / Ramp-Down Control

Eliminates scrap caused by the overpowering of material at slower than normal processing speeds

Adjustable Field of View (FOV) (Optional)

Allows for optimized cut speed and cut quality from one job to the next

Preco Patented AcuPower™ 

Provides consistent processing independent of cut shape and processing speeds

Fast Processing Speeds  

Cut Parts from moving webs for maximum production rates

Job Database

Reduces set-up time; consistent production from operator to operator

Lower Operating Costs 

High throughput and low operating cost mean increased margins

Adaptable / Integratable

I/O available for seamless interface to the existing production line or material handler

Quick Set-Up and Pattern Change

Easy to use Windows® based software enable make-to-order processing of short-run or complex jobs

System Options

The Wide WebPro Series is available with a variety of options including laminators, rotary die cutters, or multiple stations consisting of both lasers and die cutters.

Web Automation
Web steering, Closed-loop web tensioning or dancers, Pre or post-process lamination, Weed/scrap stripping, Knife Slitting, Discrete part takeaway conveyor, Guillotine Sheeter, 152 mm (6 in.) core air chucks or adapters, Slice detection, Vision QC

Conveyor
Delivers discs from cut zone to operator or robotic stacking workstations

Vision Registration System
