Akrapovic, a Slovenian company specialising in the manufacture of exhaust systems for motorcycles, supplies the largest brands that participate in motorcycle races around the world. To perform certain laser cutting operations on its own products, the company has recently begun using the LT-FREE system from BLM GROUP.
The LT-FREE is an ideal laser for processing any three-dimensional part. “Management is not easy, and the quantity and variety of elements does not help. We manufacture over 900 exhaust systems, and weare flexible enough to manage the situation without problems” company CEO, Mr. Uros Rosa explained. The LT-FREE system was created in order to process three-dimensional elements in one pass, without the need to perform tedious relocations, and this is a real advantage to Akrapovic.
Rosa concludes "Manipulation is not time-consuming thanks to the robotic arm holding the element and the two moving bases that allow the machine to process successive elements continuously.”
