Laser Solutions

Lasers have grown to be a critical manufacturing tool in the world of coated abrasives converting. As the industry transitions to high-density holes as a means of dust extraction, traditional hard tool die sets become either too expensive or not even possible. The non-contact "tool less" nature of the laser means no expensive die sets to inventory, maintain or replace. Programs/patterns can be changed on the fly, maximizing uptime and reducing cost. With a simple CAD drawing, cut patterns can be changed in minutes, which is critical during the prototype and development of your products. Where traditional die cutting struggles with small, complex features or geometries that are in close proximity, the laser excels!

Die Cutting Solutions

When you need maximum throughput and value, our CMS division has numerous Preco-designed flat bed and rotary die cutting systems in-house. Our flat bed die systems utilize Preco’s patented vision registration to orient your parts in XY and Theta (rotation) axes. We specialize in difficult-to-handle substrates when your product information needs to be in "just the right spot." When productivity is critical, our flat bed presses are the industry leader. Preco has been designing flat bed presses to die cut abrasive discs for more than 40 years. In our CMS division, we leverage both the exceptionally robust design of the Preco press, as well as decades of know-how for optimizing productivity.
