CITY OF PEWAUKEE - With the addition of new
laser-cutting technology, Wisconsin Metal Parts, Inc. has open
capacity to process an additional two to three semi-loads of
material per week.
To increase its solid state laser metal cutting
capabilities, Wisconsin Metal Parts now has two Trumph TruLaser 5030
fiber units, each powered by a 5,000-watt TruDisk laser.
With fiber systems that cut three to five times
faster than CO2 lasers, WMPI can produce most flat laser work within
a few days. The systems can cut metals, including reflective metals,
up to three-eighths of an inch thick, such as steel, stainless,
aluminum, copper and brass. WMPI uses the BrightLine fiber option,
which further improves cut quality in thicker materials, as well as
automation for efficient material handling, according to the
“WMPI’s solid state laser services complement the
company’s complete manufacturing offerings and assembly services,”
according to the release. “They are part of WMPI’s growing business
serving as one shop where customers can get all of their production
WMPI strengthened its metal bending capabilities with
a large electric brake press for metal bending in 2014. The electric
brake works faster than hydraulic brakes, especially on larger part
runs, and produces consistent part quality while running quietly,
according to the release.
In addition, WMPI offers metal stamping, CNC
machining and a full-service tool and die shop.
“The company’s highly skilled employees receive
extensive training in new technologies and are cross-trained in
different areas to handle workloads and apply expertise. WMPI runs
three shifts and maintains a high employee-retention rate,”
according to the company.
