WebPro Laser Processing System

Innovative and Cost-Effective

Preco, Inc. integrates advanced laser technology with reliable equipment offering innovative and cost-effective solutions for web- based laser cutting, scoring, slitting and kiss-cutting.

The WebPro® Series of digital laser cutting systems are rapidly reconfigured for changing job requirements and are the ideal match for short run jobs in all sizes and materials. The AcuBeam™ control system operates in a user-friendly Windows® environment allowing you to control the entire system. As a result, changeovers are as simple as opening a file without the need or costs of tooling!

This unique system allows you to laser process web widths from 25.4 mm to 610 mm (1"–24") at high production rates. Our exclusive motion design processes materials at speeds 9.14 m to 60.96 m (30′–200′) per minute, while maintaining consistent PLI across the entire process. Typical accuracies range from ±0.076 mm to 0.254 mm (0.003"–0.010") based on part size and geometry. Many options are available (dual rewinds, splice table, etc.) based on your particular application needs.

The WebPro incorporates 200, 300, 400, 600 or 1000 watt CO₂ lasers with 9.3 to 10.6 µm wavelengths, as well as UV lasers. These lasers offer a reliable, precise beam that results in clean and sharp laser processed edges.

Features & Benefits

Registers parts before processing and aligns cut pattern to fiducials - either printed or mold marks. Inspection of part available after processing for 100% quality control.

Cut parts from moving webs for maximum production rates.

Eliminates tool and die fabrication, maintenance, and storage costs.

Produces intricate patterns and fine details. Superior part quality that cannot be replicated using the die cut process.

Enables make-to-order processing of short-run or complex jobs.

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

Single or dual cameras for X-Y-Ø positioning of the cut pattern to material features

Adjustment of laser power "on-the-fly" based on the beam movements

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